Situated on Marbella's Golden Mile, Puente Romano is named after the ancient Roman bridge at the center of its lush sub-tropical gardens. Built in the style of an Andalusian village, the resort was opened in 1979 and has been a fashionable getaway ever since, with all the spacious rooms and suites benefitting from large private terraces. Directly on the beach with three swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center and world famous tennis club, Puente Romano is a sporting paradise. Guests enjoy exclusive access to the Marbella Club Golf Resort, the Dave Thomas-designed championship course and El Higueral, one of the most scenic courses on the coast. For gourmets, Puente Romano offers five different restaurants, with two on the beach, together with the club Suite, a destination in itself.
