“It just gets better and better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have just returned from our 7th visit we stayed from 4th Feb to 11th March.
Each stay just gets better and better the staff are fabulous from Maria, Patricia and Francis on
reception who make you so welcome when you arrive, Damien, Donia and Noelya in the restaurant who always have a smile for you. the Chefs who made sure you never got tired of the selection of meals also Lola and the cleaning staff who kept the hotel spotless.the hotel always maintains a very high standard.

Room Tip: If you like the sun we recommend a room overlooking the pool

23 Feb - 2 Mar. Second time to this fabulous hotel.As good as it was last year the rooms seem to have had a paint job, everywhere spotless.Food excellent great breakfast and great variety for evening meal.The staff are first class and very helpfull.Room overlooked the pool lovely sunny afternoons on the balcony away from the awful British weather.We will be back sometime soon again. For entertainment try the Irish bar just round the corner( run by a German) good night out..

Just got back from our second excellent short 4 night stay at the Don Paquito. Still the same excellent staff, still the same excellent food, still the same excellent cocktails before dinner, still the same mixed March weather. Yep, we will be back again for another pool view short break next year. This place is ranked No: 2 for a very good reason, it punches well above its weight for a three star.

Room Tip: Pool view gets the Sun.

Not sure I want to tell you how nice this hotel is, or how lovely the staff are. They will be so booked up we won't be able to get in ourselves. Not much to add to previous reviewers, except to say if the idea of walking up a hill or walking to the lift puts you off there is a regular bus right outside the hotel which is on a circular route taking you to the bus station. We used the travel agent a few yards down from the hotel to book trips and it was cheaper than the hotel. The tourist information office 2 mins from the hotel was brilliant for information on using the local buses and trains. We used buses to go to Mijas, Malaga, and Benalmadena . You can even get to Ronda by train from Malaga, it's supposed to be a super journey. Enjoy!

Room Tip: The rooms at the back get more sun, our end room had 2 windows and only one joining wall to worry ab...
