Stayed in this hotel in March and paid £20 for twin room with breakfast. Yes breakfast was a toasted roll but it was not stale. If it was so bad why didn't you go on your trip without it or buy something outside. If you want more jam etc. you only need to ask. My husband likes two pillows so he asked and was given another one no problem. As for maps they are kept in pidgeon holes at bottom of stairs. We asked for one and the lady who works at breakfast time showed us where everything was. The hotel is not advertised as having a lift so maybe it would be an idea to read the hotel description more carefully and if you want toiletries in your room pay for a higher star rated hotel. As for the bin men I don't think any hotel has any control as to their collection time. I do not have any connection to the hotel owners but I get annoyed when people want to pay for a one star hotel and expect five star service. Also if you read the other reviews you'll get an honest opinion. We cant all be wrong

Room Tip: room at front have great view

I don't know why everyone raves so much about this hotel.
Yes, it is very close to the beach, Yes there are some lovely views from the front of the hotel, Yes the hotel is clean, but as far as anything else is concerned it is very sadly lacking.
There is no lift which means it it not suitable for those who have problems with stairs and for the unwary the only toiletries you are given is a bar of soap - no problem to us as we always carry our own supplies.
The pillow was that thin we had to put coats underneath it so we could get comfortable.

Continental Breakfast - What a Joke!!!!
Firstly it was 9-11am which meant if you went on a trip or day out, you couldn't have breakfast.
One stale roll cut in half and toasted - on some mornings it was that hard it should have come with a government health warning
Two sachets margarine,
One sachet Jam
One tea Bag
One very small measure of milk

There was one poster advertising a show, but there were no other maps, no brochures or
leaflets for attractions in the surrounding area, and when one of the other guests queried about buses to Malaga and Marbella the duty barman/receptionist either didn't know or was too idle to answer. One of the other guests gave them the information they required.

Some reviewers stated that this hotel could be noisy with the school opposite but that was nothing to the noise the bin men made in the early hours of the morning when they collected the rubbish.

This could be a marvelous hotel if the owner and staff woke their ideas up, but I don't think that will happen.
While guests put up with poor and shoddy service and keep giving it the 5 "bullets" on this site they just won't bother

As other reviewers said this is basic accommodation. But great value. Spotless and so close to the beach.
If you're not bothered by having no pool. This is the place to book.
Rooms were made up each day and clean towels everyday.
Breakfast is basic but fills a gap til lunch. Great coffee.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights in march, we'd seen the hotel many times and heard good things so we wasn't surprised to find it such a lovely old hotel. yes it's basic but if you want a taste of spain before it became mass-market then this is the place for you. very clean with a lovely new bathroom and a view looking out over the sea and little square. the breakfast was a toasted roll and cup of coffee but it set us up till dinner and weasn't complaining as the hotel was only 20euros per night. a small tip, if your going to a malaga game, get the train into malaga 15 mins and buy the tickets from the ground not the local bars as its much cheaper. theres a great bar just at the back of the hotel called cheers bar that show every sport you could want with good priced beer and brilliant beech bars selling fresh paella etc. brilliant stay and will be returning asap

Room Tip: maybe ask for a high room at the front

I booked the Hotel Cabello through Alpha Rooms having read the great reviews on Trip Advisor and of course its excellent price!. Before arriving at the hotel I was a bit worried what to expect was all the hype going to be worth it, well I shouldn't have . It was all it said in those reviews and more. Friendly, clean, good value, great location, and all the facilities you needed for a short break. I would definitely book there again and recommend it to any of my friends but for under £80 for 4 nights for both of us including a simple but sufficient breakfast you should not expect the Ritz!. I have paid a lot more in 4 star hotels and have not had such an enjoyable stay let's face it you pay for all the facilities and never use them!. I hope the family run hotel keep up the good work and you deserve to have many happy guests return

Stayed: March 2014, traveled with family
