"...Amazing from start to finish. StagWeb made it so easy. All ran smoothly, truly great value for money and organisation. Best stag party ever!..."
Linekers - Perhaps one of the most famous party destinations in Spain, Linekers is perhaps the place to party and no Marbella stag do is complete with stopping by.
News Cafe - Forget the 'café' moniker, you won't even see a mug of tea, what you will find is a funky harbourside bar where you can sip champagne on the roof garden dancing to top tunes.
Babilonia - This superb and sophisticated open-air cocktail bar will add a little class to your evening where you'll find hookah pipes, trendy clientele, plenty of eye candy and great music.
Feb - Marbella Carnival. It's as if the circus has come to town, but with fewer clowns and more fireworks and beer.
Jun - Fiesta de San Juan. It's a pyromaniac's dream come true. Huge bonfires, fireworks, parades and live music in a huge nationwide party.
July - Starlite. Some of the world's biggest artists drop by for a bit of a huge open-air Festival. Expect the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Lionel Richie and The Village People (?!?).
August - Marbella Festival. 25,000 people will be getting together for a big weekender with live music, DJs & more.
"Sod this, I'm off to Marbella."
- George Best
Districts - Marbello is a party paradise with enough bars and legendary superclubs to wipe out even the most determined bar crawlers. Puerto Deportivo has some great bars but most of the real action is found just up the coast in the infamous Puerto Banus. Seriously, Banus rocks!
Must See... - Puerto Banus - Playground of the rich and famous, beautiful yachts (worth more than entire housing estates!) are dripping in opulence and long-legged lovelies. It's the perfect place to take a stroll and to walk off any sore heads. You'll also find lots of great cafes, restaurants and bars. "Hair of the dog guys..?"
'Marbs' is a Mecca for celebs and many come to worship its golden beaches and bar culture. Celebs to have owned homes there include Lord Sugar, Antonio Banderas, Simon Cowell, Vladimir Putin, Dolph Lundgren, Linsey Dawn McKenzie, Andy Gray and the late Mike Reid.
Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia bought a plot of Marbella and built a €108 million replica of the White House.
Marbella has 21 golf courses.
Eats - Colores Y Sabores. For a real flavour of Spanish cuisine this great restaurant is ideal. Its extensive tapas menu is popular with the locals, which is always a good sign. You can dine al fresco and enjoy a few local cervezas.
Drinks - Orujo. A traditional way to end a Spanish meal is with a glass of Orujo which is a type of Spanish brandy and can be up to 100%. It doesn't just have a kick like a donkey but the whole Spanish national team!
There's a really easy bus service running from the airport to the town centre. Buses are pretty much the only form of public transport, the station is based in the centre of town and prices are cheap. Taxis are less expensive than the UK but it's always best to agree a price before starting your journey.
"Hola" - Hi
"Por Favor" - Please
"Gracias" - Thank you
"Una cervaza, por favour" - A beer, please

"Un montón de cervezas, por favour" - Lots of beers, please
"El novio va a pagar por todo" - The groom will pay for everything
"Quieres bailar conmigo?" - Would you like to dance with me?

"Misspeedosestán llenas cangrejos" - My speedos are full of crabs
"Esa es una buena burra de aspecto!" - Now that's one nice looking donkey!
Marbella, a millionaires' playground (thank you Puerto Banus) yet still wonderfully accessible for us mere mortals, it's one of the greatest places to party anywhere in Europe/the planet! With 320 days of sunshine each year, stunning beaches, great bars and some incredible beach clubs, it's the perfect destination to show the groom exactly what he's giving up for married life. So here's our guide to an epic Marbella stag do.
QI - You actually can have carbs before Marbs.
We had a large plate of chips before getting on the plane.
With its own golf course and home to a number of millionaire mansions, San Pedro is a first-class resort close to Marbella. If you're looking for somewhere away from the noise of Marbella town centre, this is a great choice with some quality restaurants.
Home to the rich and famous, Puerto Banus is the glamorous face of Marbella (and that face has had quite a bit of work done to it). Designer yachts, designer clothes, designer drinks, amazing beach clubs, this is a night out with class that you don't find at many places. Banus is also home to some of the biggest and best clubs in the area.
Laying to the west of Marbella, the Golden Mile is the pinnacle of Marbella luxury with incredible properties. But for thirsty stags it's also dotted with top bars, clubs and restaurants. By day you can hit the amazing beach clubs or just enjoy a stroll along the prom. By night it's one of the best places to be and boasts a host of Michelin starred restaurants (although you will need to book way in advance).
A much quieter area, you certainly won't find the big bars, bright lights, hot eye candy of the centre of town but it's a good choice if you're looking for accommodation for your Marbella stag do.
This is the Spanish heart of the city where you can sample amazing tapas, local wines and traditional music. If you love the Spanish vibe and want to soak up some local culture during your Marbella stag weekend, head to the Old Town.
QI - The name 'Marbella' translates as Beautiful (bella) Sea (Mar).
Best to stay away from 'Montaincrappy'.
One of the best places to really see the city is from one of the amazing rooftop bars with a glass of something cold in your hand. Our team have a number of bars we can recommend (and which ones to avoid) so give us a call to find out this year's best bars.
With its glorious sunsets, medieval tower, sand dunes and pristine beaches this is Spain at its most natural without the millionaires and burger bars. It's also a popular spot for nudists so depending what kind of sights you had in mind (they are definitely not always pretty) the area might be best avoided during the day.
Yes, you did read that right. If you're a foodie, you probably already know this is a great region for the best serrano ham. Whack in a couple of local chillies, Spanish onions and olive oil and you have one of the greatest man-wiches ever. Seriously, it's something a bit special.
If you're one of those that likes taking long walks while shouting at little balls (we're addicts), then your Marbella stag weekend is the chance to check out the golf courses in and around the resort which are absolutely incredible. This is picture perfect golf, now all you need to do is up your game to match it.
It is definitely worth taking a walk around the historic old town where you can enjoy some of the café culture and sample the local delicacies. If you've already had your daily quota of ham sandwiches then try the churros, because you know what they say, "Once you've had churros, you don't go... er... burros?"
QI - Sean Connery, Antonio Banderas and Simon Cowell have all lived in Marbella.
If you want a totally cool team stag photo, then drag the guys up to the castle. The views are incredible, it's also a great way to sweat out their hangovers and give them some much needed exercise (the walk isn't actually very far but no need to tell them that).
A short walkway between the old town and Paseo Maritimo, Avenida del Mar is home to ten sculptures by the famous artist Salvador Dali. The avenue runs down to the sea making it a great backdrop for some weird, yet artistic, Marbella stag do squad photos.
If you really want to get in touch with your spiritual side, bag a Marbella sunset. There is something a bit special about finding a quiet space, gazing out to sea and watching the sun dip below the horizon. You can also get some incredible photos to wow everyone on Instagram.
QI - It's the second greenest city in Europe (behind Norrkoping, Sweden)
with just 23% of its area under tarmac or construction.
As well as the incredible weather, beautiful locals, great food and epic nightlife, Marbella is also rich in some truly legendary stag-tivities and challenges. Helping stags create quality packages while saving you time and hassle is what we do best. We also take regular visits to research the best Marbella stag dos and to find the newest and craziest activities. Here's our top activities:

No doubt about it, this globally famous party powerhouse of the Med stands head, shoulders and 24 golden beaches above the rest as the place to party, kick back and revel in the blindingly hot tunes and buzzing atmosphere of Europe's sun-blessed south.

Nothing's too big, too outrageous or too jaw-droppingly extravagant for this glittering corner of the Costas. We're talking about a resort that was founded by a prince. A marina packed to the hilt with the biggest yachts, cruisers and speedboats on the planet. Shores graced by everyone from Sean Connery to Salvador Dali. And a menu that boasts Michelin stars and cocktails alongside San Miguel and sardines (?!)
Refined, ridiculous, over-the-top or outlandish, you'll find it all here!
Literally anything goes, which makes Marbella a grade A choice in our books!
You've got it! Marbella presents an unbeatable mix of culture, entertainment, tradition and adventure. The city boasts some of the finest greens in Europe, has a bucket-load of 'top' awards under its belt (Travellers Choice, Spanish beach and luxury destination to name but a few) and basks in over 300 days of balmy Mediterranean sunshine each year. By our reckoning that's over 3000 sizzling hours to kick back, hit the town, take in some fast-paced action and marvel at the striking scenery, history and culture of one of the oldest cities in the world.
How about soaking up the sights, sounds and party vibe from the deck of your own private yacht? Fancy hitting the beach for some footie or volleyball? Or maybe trying a spot of sphering for size? Water skiing, sailing, canyoning, karting... The choice is yours!
Marbella's massive coastal playground is perfect for stags to kick back and let off steam and StagWeb have got an unrivalled selection of activities for your Spanish sojourn. As white knuckle or as chilled out as you like, the opportunities are endless.

It's always party time in Marbella! The balmy climate means even in winter you can expect a good chunk of sun to be shining down and with a scorching eight month window of summer madness (we're talking a high season of Apr-Nov here, no two week mad-dash to grab the speedos, the Marbella sun is yours for the taking practically all year through) you'll have plenty of opportunity to take in the festivals, top sports events and live music that colour the bustling streets.
But if it's seriously hot action you're looking for then June-August are the months for you, when beaches and bikini-clad beauties swelter under the sun in glorious equal measure and the San Juan festivities set the sands, bonfires and grills alight at every beach and chiringuito along the shore.
The laid back lifestyle and party attitude mean a wander down any cobbled street or soft sandy shore will soon find you with a warm welcome and cold beer, sangria or mojito in hand. The white-washed bistros and tapas bars of Old Town are the perfect tonic for a hard night at play and a short stroll down Avenida del Mar will soon have you back on golden sands ready to kick back to the top tunes of the swanky beach clubs. The Golden Mile in all its classy, over-the-top glory stretches from Marbella to Puerto Banus. And when it's time to party, Europe's classiest port is the place to be. Terrace bars, open-air restaurants, legendary clubs, thumping tunes and beautiful party people.... Everything the discerning stag could ever need!
