Bit of a shock to hear such loud traffic noise on arrival, but it was so lovely to stay here once you got inside. And what a bargain. The owner was a delight and it really is very Spanish. We paid a bit extra for a sea view but wouldn't bother again as it was very noisy outside. Inside though... More

We stayed here for one night in June. The staff were very friendly and nice. They have free parking and wifi. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from town. On the day we checked out, we were able to keep the car there until we decided to drive to our airport hotel in Malaga. The beds were comfortable... More

I have traveled a lot in Europe, but never been at a place as nice, cosy and good as El Tio Mateo. This family hostal, with landlady Mari and her daughter, takes care of you as if you were a family member. The location is great, easy to find, 100 m from the beach and within walking distance (along a... More

It was cheap, clean, near to all the amenities, but importantly of all, the owner and their... More

Family type of hotel. Rooms were fine and bathroom quite old but functional. Small veranda was pleasant but need to stand up to have a view to industrial zone, not that charming.... Air conditioning was functioning and ok. Breakfast is extra but not expensive (2.5€). Hotel is located in an industrial zone, close to one beach but quite far from... More
