“Nice clean hotel, AMAZING restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My husband and I stayed here on a quick trip to Spain. We had rented a car, so it was nice to have free parking and the view was quite beautiful. The rooms were clean, and though the walls were quite thin, we had a great stay. The best part about this place though is the restaurant. If you are staying at the hotel, there is a 20 Euro dinner deal. Normally, we don't eat at hotel restaurants because we find them to be quite expensive, and not very good. But we ate at this restaurant 3 times during our stay. For 20 Euro, you get a DELICIOUS, gourmet 3 course meal. It was wonderful!

I was taught that if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all! So let me just say "go to Villa Gudalupe for a nice sunset dinner for a view of the city". Save yourself the aggravation of a room with paper thin walls in which you hear everything from others using the bathroom to luggage rolling down the halls. There was a surprise for me the morning I went to the breakfast buffet & opened the honey only to find it covered in ants. At closer look the table itself had ants. Lastly, we were expecting to stay at a villa that looked like the pictures....alas the pool was emptied and being sanded & retiled. Big disappointment!

If you're looking for five star luxury, this isn't the place, but if you're looking for somewhere clean, super friendly and private then it's perfect. The food is extremely good, the service is great and it's exceptional value for money.

We were looking for a really quiet time to relax and revive and it was absolutely perfect for that - nothing is too much trouble for the staff (Candice and Alex, mainly) - if you don't fancy anything on the lunch menu they'll make you something - omlette or a plate of cheese/ham/fruit - and nothing is any bother for them. It made us feel really looked after.

I would have loved a couple of extra touches: the bedding is all really tired; a couple of better, fatter pillows would have made the beds feel more luxurious, and being able to make tea or coffee in the room would have been great as well.

There's an honesty bar by the pool.. I've never seen that before.. but it's indicative of the kind of place that the Guadalupe is. Other reviews have mentioned barking dogs and if that's a noise that drives you insane, then this isn't the place for you.. the reality is that the house below has four dogs and the one oppposite has two.. they chat - a lot! And, if you're on an extended stay (we actually only left once to go into Malaga centre but we were only there three nights) you will need a car as it's up a steep hill that isn't realistically walkable.

It's a super place to just chill, be fed, looked after and unwind.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 7 with a beautiful balcony.. it's a 'junior suite' but in reality this...

Spent one night for my friends birthdays, we had a super lunch, our rooms where spotless and comfortable (only missed a full length mirror in my room for getting ready) the food and service at dinner was excellent

We will definatley be back and would recommend it highly, a really excellent 3 star with food of a much higher rating

We loved this little hotel with the magnificent view. Lovely room with our own private courtyard. Wonderful breakfast buffet and gourmet restaurant for other meals. Very good value for the money. Friendly and helpful staff, would return again or recommend to anyone

Having read a number of reviews we were expecting a great night in the restaurant.
We were left feeling very disappointed.
The food was average and as an example we ordered suckling pig which was described on the menu as having crispy crackling. On it being served it was best described as soggy.
In the morning at breakfast we waited 30 mins to be served a coffee and the buffet was virtually empty. The lady serving said it had been so busy but we saw no sign of this.
Again very disappointed because having seen reviews we were really looking forward to trying this location.
We have lived in this area for over 20 years and there are much better places to visit.
The room its self was clean and tidy and good terrace.
Perhaps we have been unlucky on this weekend with the food because so many reviewers can't be wrong.
This is the first time in all my reviews that I have been negitive.

I was so lucky to happen upon this hotel. I loved it from the moment I arrived. It truly felt like a boutique hotel in the best sense of the word. From the warm welcome to the attention to detail, nothing was missed. And yet they managed to create a relaxed atmosphere where I felt like I was almost part of the family.
The food was fabulous, the views outstanding and the hotel itself was elegant without being pretentious. I just hope too many people don't find out about Villa Guadalupe so those of in the know can keep this treasure from getting overbooked.
If you want a real treat in a quiet natural environment only 10 minutes by car from the city I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I liked room #9 because I was travelling with a small dog and the room has a door leading to a small...
