The old village offers what you will find in some of the best white villages on the Costa del sol within a few miles from the coast. A great place for a nice walk around the main square and tapas at the Fonda Hotel

Don't miss going to the Old Town with its white washed houses and traditional places to visit. Nice to get away from the hustle & bustle of the modern area. Good cafe bars, restaurants etc real Spanish feel

We always enjoy our visits to the Pueblo with it's lovely houses, all typical Spanish whitewashed, and the narrow streets with the locals going about their daily tasks of cleaning. It's good to sit in the square and enjoy a coffee at one of the cafes there, usually a gentleman comes along and plays his harp, this is quite enjoyable.... More

As a previous poster said, do not confuse the 2 towns. Arroy & Pueblo are so different. This is the real Spain. A beautiful mix of old and new with small quaint streets with beautiful flowers and displays on the walls. There are some amazing sights to see such as the fountain, the old church and the views from the... More

This is a really nice village, just a short bus journey from Benalmadena. We came across it on the way to Mijas. Although there are more tourists visiting here, in the main it remains an authentic Spanish area where you will find very few English speaking people.

Some comments make it clear that the reviewers have visited Arroyo de la Miel ( stream of honey ) and not the quaint village ( Pueblo ) situated further up the road towards Mijas. Reviewer Ken L : The small train station is in Arroyo - it does not go to the Pueblo ! Other reviewers comment on it not... More

I love this place and church and places to eat and drink. Coffee and Churros not to be missed. With its own train station you can get around to Malaga or Fuengirola for a very reasonable train ticket. And to get to the beach area , just go downhill .
