We loved thus place. In the centre of Almunecar old town and close to the beach. This is excellent value for money. Rooms are cleaned daily and continental style breakfast is served anytime after 9ish. All the staff were friendly and helpful and offered good advice. We would definitely stay here again and intend to. Thank you for the hairdryer... More

We stopped here for one night after a long drive from Valencia. We were exhausted when we arrived but the night receptionist, a very non-smiley gentleman, made us wait for 10-15 minutes as he 'couldn't find the booking in the system'. The hostal was not full - I could see a lot of keys in the room slots, so he... More

The owner , and his staff made my stay a truly memorable experience. The hotel closes between October and March and re-opens for the spring season around semana de Santa. I booked on the Internet and was given a truly unbeatable rate for a two night stay. This hostel is run by a truly great host and his French wife.... More

I stayed at Hostal Altamar in May 2014 and May 2015. This is one hotel that I am reluctant to tell people about - it is so good! I have traveled for many years and Hostal Altamar is by far the best value for money that I have ever found. The staff are wonderful - honest as the day, very... More

The hostel is generally excellent value for money, with well-appointed and spacious rooms and very comfy beds, and an excellent breakfast bar/cafe which is reasonably priced. The staff are generally pleasant but one receptionist was very short tempered and very actively rude to us during our stay. It is a shame, as in many ways it is an excellent hostel.

I really chose this due to the incredibly cheap price I paid, but there's no doubt I would return, and pay more if necessary, because it was SO sparkling clean, comfortable and such a lovely place, so central, such nice people... it was quiet, yet right in the middle of the town, and should be shown as an example to...

We had a wonderful experience in Hostal Altamar. Thanks to Ignacio for his help with the map and attractions to see in Almunecar. We wouldn't have had our best fried fish tapas experience without him. The place is very cheap and also very clean and quiet. Would recommend.

A very well kept hostal, cosy, clean and very charming. The service was excellent, very clean and friendly. There is a small cafe in the hostal which has a very interesting design and decoration and serves breakfast and snacks, which is useful. Its very central and close to the beach and set in an old spanish style narrow side street.... More
