We had a very nice stay at La Brena. The staff was very helpful and friendly even with our limited Spanish. We didn't try the breakfast but had two very nice lunches at the hotel. We especially liked the goji berry salad (we found vegetables a bit hard to come by in the area) and any of the tuna dishes.... More

We were completely bowled over by this small 'boutique' style hotel right at the end of the Avenida Trafalgar, almost as far as you can go. The rooms are quiet, very large, with lots of space for hanging clothes and a double sink bathroom which was equally large. It has the added advantage of having free car parking which is... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful little hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room in the attic had a terrace with an amazing view across the sea to Africa and was simply yet beautifully decorated. The staff were fantastically smiley and helpful. The location is superb for the beach. Last but not least - the... More

We thought La Brena was lovely, we booked one of the attic rooms with a terrace facing the sea and most evenings we brought a couple of glasses of wine up from the bar and sat and drank them there which was very relaxing. That view really was the highlight of Los Canos de Meca for me as we could... More

The beach is really unspoilt gorgeous and easily accessible and very picturesque. The surrounding quartier is quiet and residential. very calm at the edge of town. breakfast is... More

Surprised to read the last review as our experience was much more satisfying. We were made very welcome on arrival and the staff were always helpful and very friendly. They are aiming (and charging) for a boutique style hotel and while not all elements are there yet(some of the bedroom decor is not very stylish), the overall impression is very... More

Our stay at this hotel was mixed, and on balance not good enough to warrant a return trip. The service in general disappointed us so much that we won't be going back. We went in early October, in the "off" season, but that's no excuse for poor service. That was the main problem. Service was positively reluctant in most cases.... More

They seem to try hard creating a contemporary atmosphere, but they fail when it comes to take care of small but important details: like treating your customers well. Service is unfriendly, and with attitude. Food has a lot to improve, comparing quality/price with other restaurants in the area. Very pretentious, and with the wrong attitude to receive clientele. Very disappointing.

Just got back from La Brena over Easter where we had a great time. The service was laid back, but efficient. The food probably the best we found in the area and the rooms were great - with views over the sea below. We could see the swell coming in, and it was one of the few spots sheltered from... More
