People from the U.S. would be very dissatisfied with the crappy “steak” that many restaurants supply. And this in a nation renowned for its bulls! Consequently poor quality restaurants are progressively more becoming specialists or are raising their standards to those of the best restaurants in the region such as Tango in Plaza Antonia Banderas
Anywhere you explore on the Costa del Sol, it is evident that there are an escalating amount of guests from North America and the far east. They are powering the investing and real estate development upsurge in the same way that Arab and drug laundering cash did in the 80s. Their coming is propelling the local business community to readjust to meet their many different requirements.
Marbella and area these days is a fascinating mix of the seedy and the glamorous. However I guess for lots of people, the seedy arena of narcotics and hoods is thought of as glamorous so there is probably some cross-over between them.
Olivia Valere club carries on as though the 1980s never ended (apart from the fashions) and still offers pretty much the same as aver. Likewise, the out-of-date hoodlum laden Sleek disco has been displaced by the hoodlum laden Cavalli Club. Which hardly seems like an upgrade apart from the branding.
As a traveller and occasional denizen of Marbella over recent number of years, it has been stimulating to observe the environment of the place change over times. From the original summit of the 1980s “Costa Del Crime” boost, when gangsters poured into Marbella with theirMarbella hookers and gangster entourages to revel in the questionable or non existent extradition arrangements, to today’s international jet-set scene, Marbella and its neighbouring places including Puerto Banus and Sotogrande, Riviera, Nueva Andalucia, has changed at a an amazing rate while nevertheless continuing to be unchanged at its core.
The Costa del Sol and Marbella will always evolve. I hope it will be in the right way. It has had the tendency to be in the past, despite the periodic huge misstep on the odyssey.
There is without a doubt a contingent of global mobsters (who tend to be surprisingly disorganised rather than the slick operations that we see on the TV) which is incredibly detectable and seems to be unconcerned by the supposed escalation in international police cooperation. Nevertheless there is also a growing undeniably upmarket sector to the area, that is now significant.
To give a very distinct illustration from the service sector; escort agencies who purely market dull young chicas without any English and are unwilling to allow payment in dollars or plastic credit will be powerless to keep up with firms such as 2nd Circle Escorts Marbella or Marbella Beauties from the Marbella Escort Agency. Those firms are providing gorgeous superior escorts in Marbella from a range of backgrounds with a wide range of language talents. And due to the fact that they are properly managed businesses instead of some sort of “life-style” endeavour, they can deliver various payment choices. They are also professional, truthful and keep their undertakings. Which makes a change reportedly!
