Although we only stayed for one night, we enjoyed our time at the Best Alcazar. We enjoyed the indoor pool and because we had a car, we were able to explore the local area - the lighthouse, the marina as well as walking along the front in La Herradura and visiting the town's castle. Would definitely recommend the hotel.

I was with friends at this hotel and we were the only English people there in February. Excellent deal for the winter weekend. Good food, excellent rooms, and very friendly staff. It is a bit out of town, but plenty of places to visit around by car.

Last stayed here around 4 years ago and enjoyed it but things have changed a little. Some travellors make comment about it being in the middle of nowhere and to an extent it is but every guide or Google search will tell you that so what's the point in complaining when you arrive. It is built within a residential are... More

Poor service, the staff only want to know you once you tip them. very noisy hotel, the only good thing was the free bus into La Harruda and the breakfast at the giveaway. Would not return to this hotel if you paid me.

Stayed at this hotel for a week all inclusive from 21-28 September . This is certainly not 4 star. Apartments were clean but very basic. Stayed on 1 st floor above the car park which was sometimes noisy. Did not have much of a sea view. Balcony had rusted air vents and paint peeling off the walls. We overlooked the... More

I always rate the hotel according to what I pay. This is a good choice. La Herradura is one of my favourite destinations in Spain as it is missing the dozens of bars that towns like Marbella have. It would be a great family choice. This hotel is located on the hill between La Herradura and Marina Del Este. If... More

The two adjoining towns of Almunecar and La Herradura are well worth a visit but what could have been such a pleasant trip was spoilt by the choice of hotel. I have never in all my life stayed in one quite so noisy. It was also much too far from any form of life. I will say the food was... More
