Antonio Banderas opens IBEROSTAR Marbella Coral Beach Hotel

IBEROSTAR Marbella Coral Beach Hotel has seen its official opening with very special host, Antonio Banderas, on hand for the celebrations.

The world renowned actor from Malaga, who has been the face of this hotel chain since 2010, did not want to miss out on the chance to be part of the expansion of IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts on the Costa del Sol.

As well as Antonio, the Mayoress of Marbella, Maria Ángeles Muñoz, and other representatives of the Marbella City Council were present on the night including executive vice-president of the IBEROSTAR Group, Sabina Fluxá Thieneman and managing director of marketing of IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts, Luis Herault, who highlighted the strategic importance of this destination for the group.

Herault said: “The IBEROSTAR Marbella Coral Beach Hotel is our flagship hotel on the Costa del Sol, a top destination on a national and international level. 

“With hotels like this one, we enrich our portfolio and we perfectly respond to the chain’s vocation to offer high-category services and facilities to its clients on the most appealing coasts.”

A beachfront hotel, just one kilometre from Puerto Banús, this hotel is situated in the heart of the Costa del Sol, in one of the most exclusive residential areas of Marbella.

IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts has remodelled the building, inspired in Andalusian and Arab cultures, improved its facilities, including 170 rooms divided among four floors (126 double rooms, 14 junior suites, ten suites and 20 communicating rooms), with views of the lovely Mediterranean Sea and terraces overlooking two swimming pools, gardens and common grounds. 

Antonio Banderas expressed his satisfaction: “About a year ago, I began collaborating with IBEROSTAR, a Spanish company with which I have a lot of things in common, such as its philosophy about its international profile.

“But today it is time to celebrate the presence of IBEROSTAR in Marbella, in Malaga, my home.

“This shows their firm commitment to this land, which makes me proud to be a Malaga native.”
