Elizabeth asked ” Hi Mike how do I get my son and 5 friends from Malaga airport to Hotel Blue Bay Banus? Do you think it’s worth considering the train from Malaga Airport to Fuengirola train station and then a bus that would pass the Hotel BueBay Banus on the A7 or the bus to Marbella from Malaga airport followed by a taxi to the hotel as opposed to the expensive option of around 200 euros by people carrier transfer from the airport? Any local advice would be much appreciated. Regards Elizabeth”
I wrote to Elizabeth “Hi Elizabeth Thanks very much for checking in to www.gomarbella.com I think the most economical way for them is to get their bus tickets online from Malaga airport to Marbella bus station (around 8.00 euros right now) and then two taxis from outside the Marbella bus station to Hotel BlueBay Banus, just past Puerto Banus. Two taxis because the local taxis can only carry four adults.
So that works out about €48 euros for the six passengers one way from Malaga airport to Marbella and then approximately €25 euros for the two taxis to Hotel BlueBay Banus.
If the chaps would like to save the taxi money for cold beers and take the L79 bus from Marbella to Estepona then they can get off either at Playas del Duque bus stop or at the next stop Restaurante Rodeito. Hotel BlueBay is just between the two stops on the sea side of the road. I hope that helps you Elizabeth. Best wishes Mike
