We booked a one night stay which we regret as it warrants a much longer visit. The place is a magnificent morrish style building on a small hill with great views and only a short walk to the beach and bus to downtown. Staff are lovely and really helpful.

We were more than surprised at the value for money provided by this hotel given its location, beautiful structure both external and internal and lovely staff. We still wonder if they under charged us as we landed on the opening day of the annual Malaga Fiesta where most properties are booked out months in advance yet only paid 130 euro... More

Wow what a delightful hotel, we had 3 nights bed and breakfast and enjoyed every minute. The hotel has kept a lot of its old charm and has amazing views of the sea and port. The staff were extremely helpful, the breakfast was lovely with a variety to choose from. The hotel is a good 10-15 min walk to the... More

What a hotel...a former castle perched above the city. Wonderful spacious rooms, mine had a sea view. Huge terrace and exquisite garden designed in Moorish style. Staff extremely helpful. Lovely breakfast served in a glorious room. 10 minute walk to the beach, 20 minute walk to centre of the city. Lots of taxis should you not want to walk. Could... More

Myself and my Wife were lucky to be invited to a wedding at this venue in May 2016. The venue itself is superb. It is positioned high on a hill above Malaga and has exceptional views of Malaga and the sea. The staff were all very friendly and could not help enough. The food served was a very high standard...

Good choice With only eight rooms available and a very good traditional breakfast included. Absolutely beautiful grounds, that feeling of being back in time and the serenity of the beautifully polished and flowered areas. My only problem was not being made aware of functions and activities that were scheduled during our stay in areas that I wanted to enjoy in... More

We stayed at this small historic hotel on our way out of Spain. I wish we had come earlier - it was so delightful. Beautiful views from every window, terraces and the oozing character. Quiet place and good mattress/free wi-fi, huge bathroom. Nice breakfast in the morning in one of the historic rooms. It is a bit out in a... More

Stayed here for just one night after a tour of Andalucia. Wished it could have been more. Relaxed friendly staff and a beautiful setting- a substantial building and gardens with numerous places to sit and relax yet only eight rooms. We were upgraded to a suite with large bathroom, comfy beds, decent size towels and quality toiletries including extras like... More

we arrived late at night having flown in and I was surprised my husband hadn't just booked a generic airport hotel. Once here I didn't want to leave! Fabulous suite, enormous comfy bed, a bathroom you could live in and room to swing an army of cats, delightful breakfast, wonderful view...and not at a break the bank price. Cannot praise... More

This is a small hotel - just 8 rooms and I get the impression it is mainly corporate events or weddings that take place in the fantastic public rooms and beautiful gardens. There is no restaurant and not a lot locally as it is a little way out of town. They give you a take away menu for a local... More
