Family hotel is run by a French-Moroccan family; although close to the beach, it is a haven of silence. Breakfast is amazing; everything fresh and plenty. Dinner is served at international hours (until 9.30 pm) and the food is enjoyable, at a very reasonable price, in an area where some restaurants or hotels seems to think they are on the... More

The family hotel is truly a wonderful place to spend a few days in the sun, especially if you like a quiet time and a chance to have a cool dip with like-minded guests . You will find genuine quality here, an unpretentious welcome in a great hidden-away location, only steps from the lovely sandy bay of Agua Amarga. This... More

A great little hotel excellent food and great welcome. Very close to the beach. Good value! Probably needs a bar to make it complete but the idea is quiet / family so maybe not. Has great out of season deals.

Was delighted to see the hotel was very close to the end of the long-distance coastal path. Beautiful small pool in a shaded patio, surrounded by gorgeous flowers. Very relaxing. The owners are French and extremely friendly. They serve a fixed price evening meal but I just had breakfast, which was fantastic. A perfect place to spend my final night... More

We have been several times, by ourselves and with friends. It is just a unique place, friendly, but very good service, clean and food is perfect. In fact we first went fourteen years ago for Sunday lunch, but now it is our special night away place.

We arrived and saw the sign that totally put us off. However, we were recommended to eat at the restaurant Rene and Michelle who are French and Moroccan. The restaurant has a very Moroccan feel about it and the menu is most definitely influenced by Morocco. Rene recites the menu to you and you choose from the 5 starters, 5... More

We revisited one star "Family Hotel" for their special offer of dinner, B&B for 95 Euro for two. Our previous visit was some 10 years ago. Father Rene has passed on, but Marc now helps his mother & the experience was as pleasurable as before. Access is via the short but VERY narrow ~Calle Lomilla, so take care! The parking... More

We came with a booking to Agua Amarga at Hotel Family, at a time of the year when Agua Amara is desolate (only two cafes open, no food store, etc). In short, after walking through to village, the question we had was 'how do we survive in this place over the next few days?. You have to remember that Agua... More
