Neighbor to the Marbella Club and, for some guests’ money, every bit its equal, Puente Romano began as a cluster of vacation apartments but came into its own as a luxurious and beautifully landscaped colony of high-end lodging in the 1970s. The intervening four decades have only seen it mellow further to become an Andulucían seaside village for the well-to-do. Guest rooms are spacious and have private or semi-private balconies or terraces. The grounds are a veritable maze of paths leading past fountains and little waterfalls, beneath arbors enshrouded in vines or flowers, and patches of blooming gardens. Complimentary greens fee and shuttle service to the 18-hole golf course is included with the room.
