Get a few friends together and plan a weekend in Marbella for next summer. Choose a central 4-star hotel or a luxury beachfront apartment.
Marbella has been a firm favourite with Irish holidaymakers for many years and it’s not difficult to see why. It’s got sun, fun and a little glitz and glamour to boot! With short daily flights from Dublin, Cork and Shannon you can however, manage a weekend in Marbella without breaking the bank.
Marbella has great nightlife, shopping and beaches so it is probably the perfect choice for a girls weekend away. It’s not only about the bling though, the backdrop of the mountains and the beautiful old town, ensure it keeps some of its original charm. There are numerous great restaurants and shops too, so it is safe to say Marbella caters for everyone.
I have chosen the highly rated Hotel Lima, which is located close to Marbella’s old town and just two minutes walk from the beach. There are much cheaper hotels available, but this adult-focused hotel is a great choice for girls weekend in Marbella.
If you are looking for a little more glitz and glamour, and have managed to gather a few friends together, then I suggest booking a two-bedroom apartment in the fabulous Marriott Beach Resort.
As the name suggests it is located right on the beach, but also has two indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness centre and several restaurants. For the ultimate Marbella experience, pay a visit to Nikki Beach Club next door.
Price for a three-night stay here is €249 based on four sharing, €199 based on five sharing or €166 based on six sharing.
Fly from Dublin to Malaga on Saturday the 6th of May and enjoy a three-night weekend in Marbella for just €382, based on two sharing in the Hotel Lima, or €394 based on four sharing a two-bedroom apartment in the fabulous Marriott Beach Resort. These apartments can sleep up to six, the total price is only €311 per person if six share.
I have chosen a morning flight out to make the most of the weekend, but the evening flight is even cheaper! If these dates don’t suit, simply click on the links below and edit your search to suit your requirements. Go on, get a few friends together and plan a weekend away – you deserve it!
