Rooms looking out at the port and a fantastic rooftop bar with amazing scenic views of the city - what more could you ask for? The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. I particularly like the continuously free WiFi and that they have smartened up the pool area. Most of all it is the location that counts and this... More

They say location, location, location. And this is the best. From the moment of parking the car outside the hotel for valet parking, to the time we left everything was perfect. The staff could not have been more attentive and courteous. The room was spacious and had a great view of the cathedral, I was pleased the bell did not... More

This is a very nice hotel with nice rooms and good comfort. We got a room with a balcony. However the door was not possible to close properly so we heard a lot of noise early in the morning from the road work outside. The staff was helpful and we got a new room at the top floor. The breakfast... More

My experience was awful and I would rate this as a three star hotel . Check in was fine and the pool area, big attraction , was very good. Everything else was totally unacceptable for a hotel that operates with 4 stars. The downstairs bar has the worst service, 20 minute wait for a bottle of water which I had... More

Just come back and loved Malaga and this hotel is perfectly located for the nightlife and the marina/beach. The room was lovely, the breakfast class and the roof top pool excellent. The staff were super friendly and we would definately return. Many thanks to everyone at the AC.
