“To die for!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We have been lucky enough to have stayed here a few times now and we absolutely love it.
The rooms are beautiful, with fantastic views, staff friendly & accommodating. The food is fabulous with yet more breathtaking views over the ocean & the entertainment during dinner is superb. Enjoyed lounging around the pool & swimming up to the cocktail bar. A very chic, chilled environment, can't wait to return.

My Wife and I stayed at the el Oceano in August and had an absolutely superb experience. The Hotel is family run and this ethos is carried out by all the staff who work there making you feel welcome and important to them. The food and entertainment is great and is complemented by fantastic views from the dining and pool areas. We will certainly return as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at el Oceano.

Room Tip: Select a room with a Sea view

Fabulous location, food, valet parking, live entertainment from noon to 9pm.

A truly stunning day out with dancing and general 'feel good' times. Not overly expensive, but enough to make you appreciate the fine food and wine; VERY popular - we were told that in order to get a table in July, we needed to be booking in around April....

There was a magician who came around the table s- for a tip of course, however he was very good, very practised and only a young man - very refreshing!

This is a hotel, pool rooms were evident and the views from the restaurants were stunning so the view from rooms would be very similar - we visited for the Sunday meal and entertainment only, we didn't stay there,however if I needed a hotel in Mijas, this is where I would be going!

I have just returned after spending 5 wonderful nights at El Oceano Beach Hotel in Mijas. The hotel, although a bit isolated in its position in relation to shops, restaurants etc, has the most perfect seafront position overlooking the beach and the ocean and if you want noisy bars and action then this isn't the place to go but we wanted to just completely relax for a few days and can't think of anywhere more ideal to do that. It was an extremely quiet and peaceful place to stay (apart from the day of the owner's daughter's 30th birthday pool party, which was great fun to watch, we heard practically no noise at all). The pool area is lovely, overlooking the sea. There is a good swim up bar with very friendly bar staff and a great selection of cocktails at reasonable prices. The hotel and grounds are absolutely spotless and luxurious. Our bedroom (room 18 mini deluxe suite) had a roomy terrace overlooking the beach and to wake up listening to the waves was just lovely. The pool area had plenty of sunbeds, shade and beach towels were provided. Due to the small size of the hotel there was never a problem finding a sunbed, which makes a change! Around the pool you could also rent large round or square lounging beds for the day too. The staff at El Oceano were so polite, accommodating and courteous (Jan on reception especially). We went to the Jersey Boys evening and meal one night which was great, food was absolutely delicious and the whole evening had a great atmosphere - very popular with non-residents too. Breakfast was superb, a choice of full English or continental. The presentation of was fantastic, I have never eaten such a prettily presented fruit salad like it before and to sit and look out of the window at the sea and beach while having breakfast just lifted the spirits immediately. The hotel had a slight feel of a private club about it, I got the impression there were a lot of return guests as quite a few people seemed to know each other plus staff members. The bar area was cosy and beautifully decorated with lovely sofas etc, it was a great place to sit and have a pre-dinner drink or cocktail along with a little glass full of nuts and nibbles and look out onto the sea. Me and my husband will definitely return again and whatever the management are doing, they're doing something right with El Oceano Beach Hotel..don't change it!! Hope to see you again soon!

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a sea-view room, you won't regret it, fantastic views.

My husband and I attended a wedding here, and stayed for 3nights. There was a problem with our booking (no fault of the hotel) the staff were so accommodating and went the extra mile to help. We stayed in a variety of different room types from a studi to a suite, all of which was to a high standard. The restaurant food was excellent with a variety of food. The location is superb (if you like secluded) I couldn't find any fault with our stay. Smiles all round. Have not rated the Spa as we didn't use the facilities.
