The most exclusive address in Marbella East, Los Monteros is known for its luxurious frontline beach villas.
With luxurious beachside villas, long stretches of sand and leafy streets lined with beautiful properties, Los Monteros is not only one of the best residential addresses in Marbella East, but in all of the Costa del Sol.
Though it is just six kilometres east of Marbella’s town centre, Los Monteros is in a world of its own. One of the most exclusive areas of Marbella, it is an oasis of peace, privacy and security in a refined beachside setting with little passing traffic. Situated between the A-7 coastal highway and the sandy beaches and dunes of the Mediterranean shoreline, Los Monteros is best known for the luxury five-star Hotel Los Monteros. A classic Marbella resort hotel in the tradition of the Marbella Club, Puente Romano, Don Pepe and Don Carlos, it is today known officially as the Hotel Los Monteros Spa & Golf Resort.
Though set back from it, this elegant resort hotel is visible from the coastal road and serves as the main reference to the exclusive residential area that lies behind it. Popular with discerning international guests as well as locals who come to enjoy its cuisine, spa and conferencing facilities, the hotel is also famous for its classic La Cabane Beach Club, which is among the most sophisticated of its kind in Marbella.
In spite of its sense of secluded privacy, Los Monteros is centrally located, and though you forget about the coastal A-7 road when you’re within the peaceful urbanisation itself, it is conveniently close. This brings Marbella and the La Cañada shopping mall to within five minutes, while Puerto Banús and many of the top schools in the area are between ten and 15 minutes away. Los Monteros is also close to an excellent choice of golf courses, while Málaga’s international airport is about 45 minutes distant.
At the heart of the local community is the five-star deluxe Hotel Los Monteros Spa & Golf Resort, which is one of Marbella’s landmark luxury hotels. In addition to its spa and fine dining the hotel also boasts one of the most elegant beach clubs in Marbella, La Cabane. Along the several kilometres of sandy beaches and dunes you will come across charming little chiringuito beach bars and traditional fish restaurants, the most famous of which are Restaurante Los Sardinales and Restaurante El Mangaleta. Also close by is the stylish Trocadero Arena restaurant, bar and beach club, while the three golf courses on the doorstep of Los Monteros – Río Real, Santa Clara and the Marbella Golf Club – also feature elegant clubhouses with first class restaurants, bars and meeting areas.
In addition to golf, the area is also popular with surfers and kite-surfers when the conditions are right, and there is even a kite-surfing school on the western end of the Los Monteros shoreline. Also set within this secluded area is the Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club, whose charming grounds and little clubhouse are a popular focal point for players, juniors and parents. These sports are on your doorstep, but other activities, such as tennis, paddle, gym, yoga, hiking, biking and horse riding are also available in the area.
The area offers a good choice of shops, schools, clinics, supermarkets, restaurants, tapas bars and cafés in nearby El Rosario (five minutes by car), while nightlife can be added to the list if you head into Marbella town or to Elviria, which along with parking takes little more than ten minutes.

The beachfront properties in Los Monteros are in high demand with sophisticated homebuyers who seek the peace and space that Marbella East offers, not to mention the fact that the finest beaches and many of the best seascapes on the Costa del Sol can be found here.
