NileGuide Expert tip:
While it is not cheap, the Fairmont Pierre Marqués is tops on value for money. Worth looking on website for offers and planning well in advance.
Built by millionaire J. Paul Getty in the fifties with gardens designed by Barragan, logo by Spratling and furnishings by Clara Porset, the Pierre Marqués was a landmark in hostelry worldwide, as well as the first hotel to glory Revolcadero beach. Impeccable service at both pools make it a place to spend the day, with family, a lover, or on your own with your laptop. Guests can chose from their own "casita" or a room and can count on absolute discretion. Anthony Hopkins has been seen here, while presidents and pop stars roll in for the golf. Boutique service from all staff, from the maid to the golf-pro, concierge and wine expert. If you want a taste of what it feels like to be royalty on holiday, make "the Pierre" your first stop.
