Wonderful terrace with view over mountains and the sea, warm welcome with free beer and tapas. Exactly what we needed after a long and exhausting travel day. The landlord is indeed outgoing, but in a very friendly and warm way. I don't agree with some statements made here that she is greedy. I booked 3 nights through booking and had... More

This guest house is mentioned in "The Rough Guide to Spain" (which providing it is positive is always a good indication) and it certainly lived up to its write up. Spotless clean and sooooo friendly I almost believed I knew the family. Even received a beer and coke plus a snack all for free on arrival, we were then given... More

There is a also a great roof terrace. The landlady is welcoming but a bit of character - personally I found this good fun and quite... More

Superb location, extremely clean and friendly. Very good price. Excellent quality orthopaedic beds. Will definitely return...and Salobrena is a lovely place to spend a few relaxing days. There is a safe in most rooms and the owner could not be more helpful

I really loved this place and it was the highlight of my trip. I was travelling alone and really felt so well with Mari Carmen's family who are so nice, helpful and easygoing. Really enjoyed the fantastic and superb balcony room with very clean bed and the bathroom spotless. Really like it. I am Spanish and have travelled extensively in... More

The boardinghouse is o.k., but the owner-lady not: excentric, moodie, obtrusive. As long you do, what she wants, everything seems fine, otherwise it will cost yours nerves. At all - little privacy, the lady is permanent near. She never respects your desire, even until ignorance of allergy inconveniences which can't go with the extensive use of crappy cleaners. More over,... More

It appears that they change the price later, most of the time. Same thing they did to us. Please put them to write the price on a paper at the begining, may be with their signature .The lady Mari Carmen is is cunning and greedy under the disguise of friendlines.They keep sharp eyes on the people in such a way...

Upon arriving at Pension Mari Carmen we were warmly greeted by the owner and her family and sent up to our 3rd level room (with a balcony). The view from the balcony is of the surrounding mountains and it's really a great place to wind down the evening (if nothing is shaking in the Salobrena night life, which is likely).... More
