“good hotel, shame about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Lovely hotel, very clean. Our bedroom and bathroom was huge. Staff very friendly, but the food was a let down. Not much variety, One meat, One fish, one potatoe and vegetable dish.The food was never hot and although we complained, it didn't get much better. As a 3star I would have expected better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool view

We booked a last minute cheap and cheerful and was not expecting much for the price, however everything about this hotel was brilliant. Our room was large with a large bathroom. The bed was really comfortable and soft. The breakfast was a little limited but sufficient. The staff were helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is located a few hundred yards from the main shopping area and beach in an ideal location. If you go to fuengirola you must visit the eco park . A really lovely zoo park where all the animals are housed in large enclosures that mirrors their own habitat. A great day out. Would highly recommend the Itaca hotel and would definitely stay there again.

we just came back from a 5day break in fuengirola and when we booked had no idea what sort of hotel we were going to, it was a nice surprise with artwork and big mirrors all over the hotel, there weren't many staying there with it being out of season but mostly fogies like us and it was very quiet, hotel over all was always nice and clean with a lovely pool although it wasn't warm enough to use it, rooms were simple but modern and clean and a heater/air conditioner if needed. we were half board and the food was nice enough with plenty of choices and a great salad bar if you didn't like the choice, staff couldn't have been more helpful and told us each day which bus to catch or where the nearest market was going to be, we caught a local bus outside the hotel and it cost 1e 50 to travel to Marbella for the day another day after visiting fuengirola market we caught another local bus from the town bus station to go to Torremelinos costing 1e 60, we were on the bus about 1hr and 15 mins, and had a lovely day out there, last day we went on a tour of Gibraltar, bus picked us up at the end of the steet and we had the most great day of the week, i fell in love with the monkeys and wanted to bring one home. all in all a most enjoyable holiday, we might not have had the weather but we didn't have the crowds either.

Room Tip: although we usually shun pool rooms in this hotel i think they got the best of the sun

stayed at the itaca, from 24th february / 3rd of march 2013. hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful. rooms good, and cleaned everyday. good location, handy for bus station and train station.
got bus to mijas, about 5 miles north. a lovely place, with superb views over fuengirola bay. cost of trip , 1.50 euros each way. brilliant value. hotel food was ok, but a bit cold sometimes. all in all, for what we paid, good value for money

Room Tip: over looking the pool , sun in the afternoon.

What a brilliant hotel. I stayed at the Itaca from Saturday 2nd March, for 7 days.

Got there just before 1pm (early, as check-in not til 2pm onwards). As it happened, my room was ready. I was put in room 301. My view was of the street going up one side of the hotel and the Comissiaria Policia building.

The room was a nice size and was spotless. Bathroom was on the small side, but spotless and had everything i needed. Digital TV had most channels in french and spanish, with 2 or 3 english channels.

The bed was very comfortable and warm. The room had air-conditioning as well if needed.

Food was excellent, the room was cleaned every day. The staff on reception were brilliant.

What more can i say, a 2 minute walk (if that) to the promenade and all the bars & eating places.

The itaca is fabulous and i would stay there again. I would also most definitely recommend this gem of a hotel.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It is a small friendly hotel. All the public areas are kept very clean. The rooms are good, we arrived to find that we had been allocated a room overlooking the road, and we asked to be moved to a room over the pool. We were moved the following day with no bother, into a room with a huge double bed. The rooms are clean and well appointed. There is a TV for those who need such a thing on holiday?

The staff are very friendly and can not be more helpful. The food was a wee bit of a let down as it was the same menu all week, but I should explain there was only 14 guests so a buffet arrangement would have been very wasteful. The meals were a bit heavy on salt.

Breakfast was adequate and something could always be found to fill us. Do not expect a full british, but after all this is Spain.

The location is good, a couple of hundred metres to the beach and a short walk from the centre of town with its bus and train station.

Room Tip: A room near the elevator if you need Wi-Fi, or over the pool for sun on the balcony all day.
