Stayed here for 5 nights for a family gathering and have to say was not expecting much at all...boy was I wrong! Being a hostel and very cheap I was expecting your typical bunk beds, shared bathrooms per floor, etc but this was far from reality! Rooms - The rooms are well kept and decor was obviously updated regularly -... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, room clean, comfortable and had good views. The restaurant was exceptional, excellent tapas, great menu and certainly not overpriced. We had 2 evening dinners here and we're really impressed at the quality and presentation. Breakfast was a bit on the slow side but I'm sure that was down to volume of people. We'll certainly stop...

I drove to Benejarafe today to see if this place was any good. I've been before but,I just thought let's see. I had the Sopa de Mariscos followed by Prawns pil pil. Absolutely the best tastiest food I've had on the Costa, and I used to eat at the Ivy, Foxtrot Oscar, Donzoko in London 20 years ago. Why can't... More

We loved this hostal. The rooms were cleaned daily, comfortable but basic. Surprised that shampoo, shower gel and toilet roll were supplied. No fridge, kettle or hairdryer but we took a travel kettle and lived without the other two. The restaurant/bar is very cheap 80 cents for a can of coke and €1.20 for a 1.5L water. We ate here...

We booked this hotel last minute as we were enjoying our stay at the beach so much, and this hotel is just across the road from the beach. Airton, pool, terrace,sea view and restaurant on offer, I wouldn't object to staying here longer, great value for money.

This resort is a hidden gem. Amazing value for money at 49 euros when we stayed in July. Beautiful beach 20 meters away so what's not to like. Sea views, swimming pool, balcony, air conditioning, WiFi, clean

First time we ate we just had wine and tapas and it was delicious. Next night we ate in the main restaurant and the good was just ok. It is a really good place for a drink and tapas but does have a vast menu so maybe we both just picked badly that night.

Stayed here a few times when visiting my Dad, I like it, fairly basic but clean & friendly. The Bar Restaurant does great food, beach across the way & a Pool. Not a place I'd spend my annual 2 weeks, but to be honest for a family on a budget & getting back to "real Spain" it ticks the boxes.... More

I had read other reviews and thought this would be a good choice, however, the beach was crowded and the town not very appealing at all. The room was ok for the price but no hot water for the shower in the morning and when I went to report this there was nobody on reception who spoke English and they... More

I stumbled onto Hostel Esperanza, Benajarafe on booking.com. It looked perfect. Across the road from the beach, with a nice looking pool, and a bargain at €66 a night for a family room! By far the cheapest accommodation we stayed in on our trip to Spain. Which of course brings a little unease…why is it so cheap, and is it... More
