      I’ve never been to Marbella, and am looking forward to spending a few days and exploring the city.

    I never even knew that there was such an awards ceremony…but maybe that is because we are primarily budget travelers. Now that has me wondering if there is a similar awards ceremony for cheap and budget hotels!
