The listing said they had an airport shuttle. When I contacted them to arrange this, they said to take a taxi. Since they’re on the other side of town, the taxi was expensive- both ways.

Difficult to communicate as we didnt speak much Spanish, but the staff was excellent and really made us feel welcome. A very short walk to the beach. Super clean. Good value for a simple stay. The road was busy, but was a good trade off that made it simple to use transit and taxi services. Overall was happy to stay there. Small and outside of the city of Malaga is what we were looking for. Thanks Hotel Elcano!!
