Hotel Al-Ana is a sweet little boutique hotel on the Costa del Sol between Marbella and Estepona. It is situated in grounds of over 1500 square metres and is just a five minute walk down a sandy path to the sea. The beach there is one of the few unspoilt beaches on the Costa del Sol, with nothing but sand and a few beach bars for keeping you refreshed.
The garden is very secluded and private, and has a large chlorine-free swimming pool of classic design. There are various little spots around the garden for sitting or lounging, in the sun or out of it. Drinks and refreshments are served all day long and the pergola is a perfect place to have breakfast or a drink in the shade.
The nine rooms and suites are all highly distinctive, being themed after an iconic town or city. With the exception of the smaller Dover, they are all between 20m2 and 43m2 and each (again, except Dover) has a private patio or terrace. All the rooms have air-conditioning, a coffee making machine, electric kettle, minibar, flat-screen satellite TV, safe, iPod docking station, wi-fi connection and an en-suite bathroom with bath/shower, hairdryer, dressing gown and slippers.
A short drive in one direction lies the fashionable resort of Marbella and the famous Puerto Banus. The other way leads to Estepona, a more family orientated town with a wonderful promenade by the sea and its harbour full of boats. Just a couple of miles inland you leave the Costa del Sol behind and head into the hills and mountains of Andalucia. Here you can visit Ronda or a hundred pretty little pueblos blancos (white villages).
Beautifully themed rooms, and a short walk to the beach.
Dover is about 15m2. Its private British ambiance is perfect for romantic couples or equally suitable for the single traveller. It is furnished in a traditionally old English style that never goes out of fashion.
