“Hidden Gem of a Hotel in a Gorgeous Village”
Reviewed August 20, 2006

The Escudo de Mijas is located right in the centre of Mijas just off Plaza de Constitution, which makes it an ideal base for exploring the many excellent bars and restaurants that are in Mijas. The accomodation was of an excellent standard, we stayed in room 4 which was at the front of the hotel with a balcony overlooking the coast. The room was spotless and very modern, the bathroom was very nice and also extremely clean, we had maid service every day and towels and sheets were changed every other day. The mini bar was restocked on a daily basis and there was also a T.V. and DVD player. The reception staff were very friendly, spoke superb English and were always very helpful and polite. Being a hostal it didn't have a pool etc.. and doesn't provide breakfast or snacks but don't let this deter you from staying as the coast is a mere 10 minute drive down the hill and there is a swimming pool approximately 3 miles away at Ossunias, we were also able to buy our own food for breakfast from the supermarket and store milk etc.. in the mini bar.
Mijas is a lovely resort to stay in if you are looking to get away from the more 'lively' resorts on the coast. It has some lovely restaurants (Osteria - Calle San Sebastian - for the Gambas Pil Pil, El Mirjo Blanco - Plaza De Constitution - for something abit special, El Puerto - main road into Mijas - for the BBQ especially the King Prawns and La Fiesta for pretty much everything) and bars (Bar Aroma - Calle San Sebastian - fantastic late bar, very chilled out, lovely cocktails and very reasonably priced and Cafe Bar Murillo - overlooking the Square at the top of the village) and there's a fair few things to keep you occupied during the day. I would recommend that if you decide the stay here you hire a car, as the village is only small and after a few days we found we were getting 'cabin fever'. Good places to visit are Ronda - fantastic mountain town about 50km away from Mijas, Puerto Banus - for the yachts and the 'beautiful' people in the marina who have to be seen to be believed!, and Selwo Animal Park near Estepona which is a zoo/safari park and is a fab day out for both adults and kids (if a little pricey!) Overall, I would highly recommend a stay in Mijas and would definately stay at The Escudo again!
