This hotel looks nice on the pictures and the location is indeed lovely high up in the hills overlooking Nerja. When we arrived in february and entered on of the cottages also referd to as "Snail rooms" in other reviews we were facing the fact that it was very cold. Also the humidity in the rooms was very high so... More

Absoluty love this quirky place!! Lovely, quirky rooms with beautiful views. Lovely grounds. Small pool which suits me. Good restaurant. I love the drive up to it from Torrox and down to Frigliana. So nice just to sit on the terrace with a drink taking in the view.

We stayed at Los Caracoles for 2 nights in October. The staff were extremely friendly, especially the male waiter who let us know about a good beach. The "snail" shaped accommodation that we stayed in was fanastic and my 13 year old son thought it was great. Comfortable, spaceous accommodation with plenty of hot water and heating (if required). The... More

We live just a few yards from the "Caracoles" and for many years it was more or less our "local". Then it changed hands a couple of times, and standards waivered. Now it is back on track, and you can be sure of a friendly welcome in the hills, together with good food and an interesting and slightly unusual menu.... More

Location is lovely high up in the hills overlooking Nerja, however when we arrived we were told that the room we had booked and paid for in full would only be avalible for half our stay and we would then need to change rooms (we had booked one of the Snails) to one of the normal rooms which was a...

This hotel was the first stop on our "ruta del sol y vino". We were coming from the north west (Torrox) and it was very difficult to find the place. Luckily the owner was so kind to come to pick us up. It took some time before we noticed the white car she described on the phone and that was... More

This is an incredibly unusual hotel, on the mountain roads above frigiliana, the most amazing views, a photographers dream. The rooms are a decent size with bathroom, there is no air conditioning which can make it pretty hot in the summer but well worth the inconvenience. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. This is a hotel to stay in... More

After making our way up the winding road through the stunning hills above Frigiliana, we arrived at Hotel Los Caracoles around midday to be greeted by the very friendly receptionist. She led us down to our room and when we entered, the room was in darkness. We rushed over to the balcony doors and threw them open, to find that... More
