10/10 Exceptional

Lovely small hotel very conveniently located. Staff were all very friendly and polite. The breakfasts each morning were very good with freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and much more. We would certainly stay there again if in Malaga.

2/10 Poor

We checked in late on night 1 of what was supposed to be 3 nights stay. Our room smelled of sewer gas, there was ants in the bathroom. We heard people coming and going until 3am. We decided to check out the next morning at 7am and they charged a one night penalty. When we explained why we were leaving they would not remove the penalty. We paid the penalty because the conditions of the hotel we so poor.

Welcome to Hotel California
What a beautiful property and such a lovely welcome from friendly chap on reception. Told us about the hotel, breakfast, sun terrace, gave us a map of the area and gave us loads of info. Breakfast on the terrace was amazing. Fresh baked bread and croissants, home made olive oil cake (to die for), museli, fresh fruit and yoghurt, meats and cheese, fresh orange juice and unlimited tea and coffee. Checked on us a few times, to make we had enough/e joying it. Will definetly stay again when next back in the area.
