Iberostar Coral Beach in Marbella, a warm colonial-style beach hotel

I had no hope for him Iberostar Coral Beach in Marbella. It was the chain of hotels I stayed in during a trip through Tunisia, and in most of them the decoration disappointed me several integers, despite the abundant stars that shone on the door.

However, to my surprise, I found a warm colonial style beach hotel, especially in the room, where white and natural materials, such as wood or marble, predominated. The style of the corridors, which I have avoided watching over your visual health, was not so pleasant, painted in a red tile color quite overwhelming.

Going back to the room, The first thing that attracts attention, in addition to its clarity, is its large size. After a small hall, a large room opens with us, with two beds and a sofa area in front of the TV. In the background, behind a large window, there is a small terrace.

The warmth is provided by the materials, all natural. From the floor, of a beautiful marble, to the doors of the cabinets, of white wood, as if they were shutters, passing through the fabrics of the armchairs and the headboard of the bed, in an earthy color that offers the only contrast note .

Disappoint a little that, when looking out at the terrace, the only thing you see is the pool of another complex, and as much as you try, you can't see the sea, and that the hotel is on the beachfront. Although that is a bad only of the most modest rooms. Fortunately, the garden pines offer a cool breeze while enjoying the 3G connection, because inside there is none.

And speaking of connections, you will allow me to make a non-decorative subsection. I don't understand how hotels still don't offer free Wi-Fi to their customers. It is true that it requires a strong investment, but today it is something that would change for pay TV or the mini bar. But of course, as they need it to be given the stars, until they change the rating system, we are served. They should learn from American hotels, where even the saddest roadside motel offers it for free.

That said, we resume our walk around the room. He had left me to visit the bathroom, which is accessed from the hall, as usual. It is really big, though distressingly dark. A single lamp illuminates the main area, with two breasts and a large mirror.

On one side of this area we find the toilet and the bidet, and on the other, without any light on it, the bathtub. I understand that the lighting in the shower area is complicated, due to the problem of water vapor, but there are waterproof luminaires that would allow you to enjoy a shower and can distinguish what soap is and what is shampoo.

As you have seen, The Iberostar Coral Beach in Marbella is a warm colonial-style beach hotel, although after its pleasant clarity some shadows hide that should not be forgotten when deciding to stay in it to spend a few days on the beach.
