Just ten minutes away from the holiday mecca of Marbella, the seafront Hotel Guadalmina is surrounded by sweeping fairways. The two eighteen-hole and one nine-hole courses are within walking distance, and resort guests are welcome to simply stroll over to the eleventh hole of the Guadalmina South Course and start their game. From the greens, panoramic views sweep from Gibraltar all the way to the North African coast. Many of the guest rooms look onto the fairways, while others take in the sea. For post-game relaxation, the hotel offers a comprehensive thermal circuit with a hydrotherapy pool and a state-of-the-art wellness center — with its focus on hot and cold massage therapies, the Golf Spa treatment is ideal after a day spent walking the back nine.
