Just returned from travelling through Andalucia and had a 2 night stay here. We had a double suit (101) by the pool. What can i say apart from absolutley stunning, the veiws accross the Nerja area are amazing, the room very quirky but also very comfortable, the food was fantastic although we did eat out for evening meals in Frigliana....

We were planning a holiday driving around Andalucia for 8 nights and when I saw a photo of the snail bungalows online I couldnt resist staying a night in one of them - though for some reason through hotels.com when we were booking you had to stay at least 2 nights if you were booking a snail bungalow but we...

Arrived to superb views. We had asked for twin room but ended up with a double. Had a nice chill by the pool but very little atmosphere. Dined in the restaurant that evening. It was nice but we were the only diners. There was no fan in the room (contrary to promised) and we only realised what a problem this... More

I liked this place enormously although I found the mountain road (and the final hotel approach track) to be pretty scary - I don't like heights!. But after a few goes I got my confidence. The setting is stunning - truly stunning! We ate here for a few nights and the food was very reasonably priced and was freshly prepared.... More

We booked two nights here at the end of a whirlwind two weeks in Spain. We chose one of the double rooms as the suite we looked at was a bit musty smelling. I have read the other reviews and they are all quite accurate. The only exception would be the breakfast. We found it to be more than adequate.... More

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).
