US President Barack Obama and his family are to take a holiday early August in the posh southern Spanish resort city of Marbella, Spanish newspaper El Pais and El Mundo reported Sunday on their websites.

Obama, who would be on his first holiday in Spain since becoming president, was to use the occasion to visit Spanish King Juan Carlos on the Balearic island of Mallorca, the two dailies reported, citing diplomats.

The president would stay at Marbella, a prime holiday destination favoured by the rich and famous, from August 4 to 8, according to El Mundo.

The newspaper said that originally only his wife and daughters were supposed to come.

The Spanish government could not confirm on Sunday that Obama and his family were coming.
