Marbella: From a small, seaside, agricultural town with a lot of history, to an international hot spot.
To illustrate the beginning of the evolution of Marbella as a resort town, the official census population in 1950 (not counting part-time residents) was 9,991 inhabitants, exploding to 29,253 in 1970, and more than doubling again by 1980. Marbella was always a very seasonal resort town, like all the others on the Mediterranean coast, with a high season which started very gradually in the Spring, building up to a crescendo in the summer months, and gradually rolling up the sidewalks at the end of September or beginning of October, with many restaurants and hotels closing down for the Winter.
For a resort city to be open year-round, with enough business to keep open the: restaurants, nightspots, boutiques, leisure and sporting facilities, not only does one need to have great winter weather, but a minimum nucleus population. With the years, the winter “off-season” has taken on a life of its own, transforming Marbella into the only resort city in the Mediterranean Basin with a true year-round season.
The current official population of Marbella is around 150.000 inhabitants from 140 different nations. Adding the floating, unregistered population, the low season population today is around 275,000 inhabitants, according to Town Hall estimates, rising to over 800,000 in the peak season.
Over the years Marbella has come closer and closer to reaching its full potential as a resort city and is now among the most important, high end resort destinations in the world.
Marbella Club, the origin.
The world-famous hotels with the same name have become a symbol of luxury and elegance in Marbella. We talk about a location with first-rate services, the good things about living here and give you a list of all the good reasons to think about buying a home around Marbella Club and Puente Romano.
The central location of these hotels is the primary factor in our decision to purchase a home around them. To be more precise, an “ultra premium” position, since both are often considered to be among the best of Marbella.
Alfonso von Hohenlohe.
Alfonso was the prince whose dynamism turned the Spanish fishing village Marbella into a glamorous resort. Due to Alfonso’s charming personality and the fact that his mother was of Spanish royalty, he gained popularity. He connected with rich and famous people in Europe, like Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and Ava Gardner, who frequently visited the club. He also had a deep understanding of agriculture, having studied it in the US. All of these factors made Alfonso a crucial asset to Marbella’s future success.
Marbella’s rise as a luxury destination began in 1955 with the high-profile marriage of Alfonso and Princess Ira, attended by European nobles. Seeing the potential, Alfonso bought a 20-bedroom motel that needed some improvement. With the help of his cousin, Count Rudi, they transformed it into a fancy and comfortable hotel, marking a new era for the Marbella Club. The hotel was peaceful and quiet, with no TV or radio allowed.
Rudi, famously known as Count Rudolf Graf von Schönburg, is a noteworthy figure in the legacy of both Marbella and the Marbella Club Hotel.
Puente Romano Hotel.
Puente Romano is situated right on the sand, with a southerly view of the Mediterranean and expansive vistas to the east and west and south to the stunning Sierra Blanca mountain range, conveniently located on the Golden Mile halfway between the two prime spots: Marbella and Puerto Banus. Both are close by, and the dazzling lights of Puerto Banus can be reached in a short car ride (or a pleasant stroll along the seawall).
And just outside your front door, since Puente Romano is its own little universe. The Puente Romano Hotel has first-rate services like:
Consider the restaurants here. The Puente Romano Hotel has become a mecca for gourmet cuisine because of the abundance of excellent dining options in its lobby and surrounding grounds. Michelin-starred local chef Dani Garcia is just one of several chefs who have placed their stamp on the food here.

Stunning, unparalleled views.
At Puente Romano, like in much of Marbella, spectacular views are the norm. Some of the nicest real estate is right on the beach, where the beautiful Mediterranean can be seen from the patio, bedroom, and living room.
However, the scenery from each dwelling is different. We believe the views, whether of the ocean, the mountains, or the well-maintained gardens, are another attractive feature of Puente Romano real estate.
And like we stated, the views from your window are spectacular.
In Puente Romano, three of the apartment buildings use gardening as their primary design concept. Stunning tropical plants and trees complement designs inspired by Andalusia, Persia, and Japan.
The grounds of Puente Romano are among the best in Marbella, and the whole complex is worth seeing. From the historic Roman bridge on the waterfront, a walk up through the hotel grounds will lead you to a beautiful oasis.
