    Excellent Spanish hotel, a few metres away from the beach and promenade. A quaint small Spanish resort with a few local restaurants and Spanish bars on front. Having stayed in 9 different hotels and resorts in 14 days this was in our best three - we liked it so much we stayed another night. Good free parking on seafront during certain months, plenty of street parking close to hotel. About an hours motorway drive away from Malaga airport.

    Tea and coffee making facilities in the room would have been nice. Disappointed that we couldn’t get a cup of tea or coffee before we had to leave at 7.30 am - breakfast doesn’t start until 8 am! The only toiletries were a sachet or two of shower gel and shampoo each day. The safe in the room had the lock removed, so was unusable.

    Good selection of breakfast food. Would take my own teabags if I was to stay there again. Our room had a small balcony where You had a view of the sea if you turned the chair sideways! The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

    I'm going to be slightly picky and say that being charged for the use of the room safe was surprising, the charge is only 2 euro's a day but its the first time I have ever been charged like that.

    The Staff are great, the rooms are well equipped, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is varied and value for money ( in the summer you get to sit on the roof terrace). The Location of the Hotel is perfect for the Beach and the town, and the cost very reasonable.

    • Leisure trip

    • Stayed 3 nights

    Minibar only contained water: Could be better charged with beverages (beer, coke, sprite) and maybe a bar of chocolate or some peanuts. The mattress of the double bed needs to be replaced by a new mattress: It is fully sunken in the middle and will give you a headache or back pain in the morning. The restaurant offers dinner (buffet), but as hardly anyone makes use of it, it is a very boring restaurant, therefor we did not stay for dinner. The windows / window frames (front side of the hotel) don't islate the noice, so all the noice from the morning traffic in the street (which is a lot!) will wake you up.

    Staff was very friendly, breakfast was good, views from the top floor terrace are beautiful, rooms are clean and location is good for a beach holiday.

    Everything was as good or in fact better than you could expect for the price.

    Out of season, many resturants closed. The better ones still open. Limited undercover parking so book in advance, but note municipal on street BLUE Zone parking is only charged during high season. Excellent Nudist Beach in the next bay with access through a parkland area with deer, mountain goats and wild boar. Close to Almunecar for rainy day, castles, museums and retail therapy.

    When we phoned the hotel to check which rooms had a balcony, the staff did not mention that they call an outside space with table and chairs a terrace not a balcony. We were disappointed that the suite did not have a terrace and so moved to a standard double room. Hotel restaurant and bar both closed on a Sunday, so we had to look for dinner elsewhere. There was a sound of constant running water in our room (408), which is a shame as it has the best view of the sea. Air con seemed to only blow warm air.
