This is a charming small hotel. Stayed in the 'Djerba' room which is a private room on the first floor balcony. Room was a good size and comfortable. I'd say it is one of the better rooms as it is private and quiet. The staff were very charming and helpful. They will serve you breakfast wherever you like until 12am! Very civilized indeed.
To stay here, you'll need a car and want to escape from the bustling life of Costa del sol. However, watch out, as it's very difficult to find! As other posters said, the directions from the hotel are very unclear. When heading from Malaga, keep on the AP7 highway heading for Algeciras, then after Marbella, change for the A7 heading for Algeciras or Estepona (do not go into Peurto Banus (ever!) keep on this highway, pass the marriott on your right. Slow down a little, pass the exit called 'Cancellada'. drive a little slower and it is the next exit, about 1/2km after Cancellada. There are no signposts on this exit, but after you turn in, you will see the signs for Albero lodge. Another landmark is a GARDEN CENTRE sign on the roof of a garden centre in big green capital neon letters, come off the highway when you see this, if you pass it, come off on the next exit and cross over the highway and drive back towards Malaga, enter the small side road, the entrance to the hotel is just at the entrance for 'beach park' apartment complex.
Another tip - make sure your room has a plug in mosquito killer, otherwise.....
I think this is a nice place, but remote and everything is a car ride away. Good if you are familiar with Spain and driving in Spain.
Final tip, try a trip or 1/2 nights at Ronda. 80 mins drive from the Albero lodge, but a lovely charming blast of the traditional Spain, without being too touristy.
