"Euro VT meeting May 2006" Marbella by Igraine

Marbella Travel Guide: 578 reviews and 2,080 photos

I was in Marbella for the 2nd European VT meeting. Like all meetings go we had lots of good food to eat, lots of drinks so we had an excellent meeting. Most of all due to the excellent organisation of Carmen and Stacey. 3 times hooray for them!!

Marbella city was a pleasant surprise. I had this images in my head of endless tourist shops on a boulevard, mixed with bars and cheap restaurants. But i proved to be all wrong.
This city has its share of hotels and tourists and bars & restaurants but nothing overly touristy. Only the immediate beach area is touristy and even that not too bad.
The big hotels and appartment complexes are outside town, so the center of town is rather unspoiled.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Superb weather this time of the year
  • In a nutshell:A hidden gem on the costa del sol

    Great pics Ingrid - I really enjoyed looking at them to bring back all the good memories - Marbella seems so far away now doesn't it. Hope to meet you again soon, Vicki :-)

    Hello Ingrid. Arrived back home yesterday afternoon. It was great seeing you again. Wasn't it a wonderful VT meet. We all had such a fantastic time. Hans and I were so sad to say goodbye to everyone.
