One of our readers is looking for a country club recommendation and asks, ”We'll be in Marbella with our two kids (4 and 8 years old) for the whole of June and July. We are looking to join a Country Club to have a place to go out for lunch/exercise (tennis/golf)/drinks AND to be able to drop off the kids at a "kid room/club".

Does anyone have any recommendations for a Country Club that a family could use, but not to have to stay overnight (we have our own accommodation). My online research seems to be coming up with a lot of mature golf clubs...

Thank you in advance for any suggestions!”

* Chowka restaurant

We have received another great review from our favorite restaurant critic Morris Bishop. Today's choice - Chowka. A new Indian restaurant on the Golden Mile. ”About a month ago, Chowka opened its doors to an unsuspecting public as to what would replace the Polo Club on the ‘Golden Mile’ in Marbella. The pre opening adverts promised a new experience in Indian dining, with ‘tapas’ dishes for sharing. We were a party of six eagerly looking forward to a gastronomic adventure into a new type of Indian cuisine.”
