“An amazing experience with wonderful hosts”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Located in Comares, Spain is the Hotel Restaurant Atalaya.
It is not easy to get to unless you have your own transport, but getting there is part of the thrill.
I found I would have a 5 hour wait for a bus, but a lady at the bus station offered me an alternative with a much cheaper taxi fare than it would have been from Malaga estacion.
The roads are narrow and very twisting and the views up to Comares and then from the road and at Comares were amazing. The taxi driver from Velez Malaga was offering guides in Spanish.
The more amazing was the welcome at the hotel and the personal attention from the hosts. English is a problem because that is the only language I speak, but we managed to communicate and understand each other. Friendliness and welcoming do not give enough credit to this hotel. They have even gone to the extent of organising for the 0700 bus on Monday (the only one) to collect me from outside the hotel as it goes past, instead of having to haul luggage up the hill to the bus stop, about 700 metres further on. Not only that but on Sunday evening a bag of goodies was brought to me so I could make sandwiches for breakfast, along with juice and fruit. The thoughtfulness and genuineness from my experience absolutely enhanced the time there, as I had wanted to have a quiet break having been traveling for over 10 weeks so far. I hope to get a picture to include with this complement because they are fabulous.
Note the Hotel is small, it is 36 km on the most direct route from Malaga, It is to the North East of Malaga, It is also to the North West of Velez Malaga.
There are a number of walking tracks around Comares and Hotel Restaurante Atalya would be a great place to stay when you do those walks. The walk to Comares - 700 m roughly and then around the town is well worth it and the municipal swimming pool is 50 metres from the hotel.
Use - "Google maps of Comares Spain" for a map of the town and zoom out for the exact location and address. I doubt you will be disappointed.
