Tired, poorly maintained and has obviously had a more glorious past. Rowdy guests kept us awake through the night despite complaining at the time, loud inattentive owner, TV old and useless, stench of bad drains in the bathroom, breakfast uninspiring. A nice place to leave. Good beach nearby.

After several years of staying here i will not come back again.The rooms are not cleaned properly,the towels are old and worn. The grounds which were once lovely are now in a poor state where dogs run riot before washing themselves in the pool. The bar no longer has the tapas it used to offer and too is looking unused,...

This hotel is on it's last legs. Neglected, no service to speak of. Bar rarely open and when it is-- the staff (if any) are very rude. Air conditioning out of order and so called staff said' nothing we can do!'. Rear rooms very noisy---window in room would not shut properly. All in all--a terrible experience. Would not be surprised... More

This hotel is gem. Full of character and characters! We found Hotel Artola by mistake and then fell in love with it. The location is ideal, bus stops outside to Fuengerola and Marbella, beach 5 mins walk and local bars and restaurants approx. 10 mins. Our special thanks to Vic and Lyn for guiding to us to this hotel. Throughout... More

Local beach, bars very convenient and for a short romantic getaway found this to be perfect for the price we paid . Like i said... More

Oh dear! What can I say? We hoped this would be as their website purports, a quiet, little grand boutique hotel. It was dreadful. Do not believe the favourable reports on here as they have permanent English residents who I suspect are writing the good reports. The hotel is nothing like any of the good reports. The concierge could hardly... More

Although there are signs that the harsh economic times have had an effect, our stay at the hotel was comfortable and relaxed. Our room was lovely (107) with an outlook over the hotel gardens and pool. It was plenty large enough, with a sizeable bathroom and good shower/bath. I have to compliment the room cleaning. It was done daily effectively... More
