    Nothing much.

    The hotel is stylishly and beautifully furnished. The location is excellent for the beach and town. The way they do breakfast, without a buffet, works well in a slightly surprising way. The staff were kind. Quiet, relaxing public spaces.

    Positioned on a very steep hill but not a big issue. More than a short walk into town though promenade along beach is pleasant in good weather.

    Classy hotel. Very nicely decorated and laid out. Lovely, large double bed with quality linen.Large underground garage.

    For us the location was great, we could hear the sea but no traffic or whatsoever. I could imagine that someone might like a Hotel even more centrally located. Yet this is the small town of Malpica where you have to make choices instead of wanting everything at once. Because my Spanish is not brilliant it would have been a little easier if the staff had known a little English. But we got along and got all the information we needed. As we were on a hiking trip where you definitely want a breakfast and want to start the day as early as possible it would have been nice to get breakfast earlier than 8.30.

    The location is great. Close to the sea, 10 minutes walk to the bars on the promenade. Centrally located right in the route of the Camino dos Faros. Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nicely furnished and very clean.

    The hotel was extremely clean and the staff were specially nice. It is very, very close to the beach and a 10 min walk from a couple of restaurants and the port. Perfect place if you want to go with your SO. I went in winter for a scuba diving course and was extremely pleased with the place. Try to call before booking.

    Our room was very spacious with a double balcony. Wonderful spa bath and very large comfortable bed. Reception was friendly and helpful. The hotel is only about 50m from the beach. To get into the town is about a 10 minute walk along the beach promenade. Breakfast was very good. Malpica is easy to get to from A Coruna by bus.

    The area and town seemed quite run down, not many eating places open. A shame as it has potential.

    Beautiful hotel, clean and airy with very friendly staff. The garage was very useful. Ate in town at O Cachon - not easy to find but we were helped by a very friendly local.

    Malpica itself is not the prettiest of towns.
