    There are several steps up/down to the entrance doors and are fairly steep, the bottom being the worst, but there is a handrail both sides. The only real complaint was the lack of handrails in the bathroom by the loo and bath. The actual loo was about the size of a child's at school and as low. It was so bad the hubby had to come to my rescue.

    We were only there for less than 12 hours as we had to be at the airport for 4.30am. The receptionist was helpful and so were the 2 night porters we met who helpfully opened the door for me as I was on crutches.

    There was a limited choice for breakfast (toast or pastry), but for the price of the room, it was acceptable. The breakfast room was very pleasant it is actually the hotel bar but only gets used at breakfast time which as others say, is a shame.

    Our room was very spacious and overlooked the harbour. It was very clean, including the balcony and the table and chairs on it. The room had efficient air-con. Parking was not a problem at the end of September, but may have to shuffle to get outside hotel at busier times.

    I have stayed in the hotel several times now and each time it has always been a very positive experience. The staff are lovely, very welcoming and helpful. The rooms I have stayed in have always been spotless, comfortable and spacious. I travel into Malaga airport and can get public transport from just outside the arrivals terminal to outside the hotel door.

    Whilst the hotel is perfectly adequate, does what it says it does, and is good value for money, it is a little bit soul-less; the rooms and the reception being very bare. No local magazines, no leaflets of things to do; no information on the area and the local town ...

    There was nothing we did not like.

    Location facing the Marina was perfect. Quiet but walking distance to "Torre del Mar" if a greater choice of restaurants/bars/shopping required. The wide promenade is superb, stretching for several kilometres, ideal for jogging, cycling as well as a gentle stroll of course. Being easy to park was an added bonus.

    You pay more for a harbour view balcony at the back, but weren't told the entire road behind the hotel had been dug up for months, with workmen and diggers working from early hours throughout the day, causing constant noise, dust and drain smells. So unable to enjoy the balcony. It will be nice when the road is finished but think guests should be warned, or not charged a premium price while all this is going on.

    The hotel is on the main road - this doesn't bother us but may bother some. The rooms are a little tired looking, but nothing was broken and we had a great night's sleep. We only stayed a day so can't really comment much more. There is no specific parking, but we parked on the street outside the entrance no problem.

    The lady on reception was really friendly and very helpful. We had a room with a sea/marina view and mini balcony which was just lovely. Its only a 5 minute walk to the beach and there are restaurants around on both sides of the road.

    Hotel el Paraiso is a budget hotel, clean and simple and more than fine on that basis. But don't expect luxury accommodation. Breakfast is provided but the restaurant does not serve other meals (plenty of nearly restauarants and bars though).

    The hotel is in a lovely location, overlooking the small fishing harbour and marina of Caleta de Velez. And only a short walk to a superb, uncrowded beach. Caleta is only about 20 minutes drive east of Malaga and within easy reach of the interesting town and caves of Nerja.
