Almijara - a little paradise in Cómpeta, perched above the church on the plaza, breakfast to die for and the hosts Paul and Maurice make you feel like you at home in this luxury boutique hotel. The rooms have awesome linen, a stunning rooftop terrace that has an honesty bar

The breakfasts were little works of art - forget your saturated fats, cholesterol raising, artery clogging full English ! Every item was exquisitely crafted and as well as looking lovely they tasted delicious. Something different every day prepared for you specially by Maurice

Could I please ask, is smoking permitted on your own suite balcony? I am a smoker. Many thanks
Sorry we don't smoke but the balcony is small so couldn't close the doors behind you. As said before ask Maurice and Paul they are really nice .
