Bahia Tropical Hotel
Ranked #7 of 25 Hotels in Almunecar
Reviewed April 8, 2013

2km out of town right by the beach amongst charming streets, good value, great food and friendly service. Large rooms, clean all round a very good hotel. A good relatively quiet location with lots of attractions close by.

Room Tip: Pick overlooking the pool if possible so you can relax in the sunshine on your own balcony

We stayed here with our 18 month old son for one night on the way from Malaga to almeria. It is quite difficult to find the hotel as tomtom seemed to think you could just drive down tiny paths! I would certain,y recommend a printed map.

From the outside the hotel looks like somewhere my parents might have stayed in the seventies but it was cool and calm and classically decorated on the inside. The internal area with the pool which you cannot see from the outside is really lovely with a separate children's pool ( which we didn't use as it was too early in the season).

The rooms are big with a sofa and plenty of additional space for a cot. We had a balcony overlooking the park which was fun for my son but we would have preferred a pool view.

We had half board which was very good value for money but fairly average buffet style food. You would probably get bored of this if you were eating in for a week. You cannot order wine by the glass at dinner but they will save a bottle for you until the next evening if you can't mange a whole one in one sitting. Breakfast was buffet again with a pretty good spread. Service in the restaurant was prompt and our son was fussed over and made to feel welcome.

There are restaurants and bars and two nice beaches within a very short walk of the hotel. There were also many more restaurants and chiringuitos about 10-15 minutes walk. While we were there we didn't hear any other English voices which was fine by us. There were mainly Spanish tourists with occasional Germans. I'd be happy to return here -great if you want a quiet, sunny break away from the costa del sol masses.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view-ground floor if you have kids as you can open gate from terrace directly onto pool...

We stopped at this hotel for a week this march as part of a package deal by a small independent tour operator "preferrred travel".
The rooms are very big and comfortably furnished with a sette as well as the beds, the balcony looked out over the hills.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful, it was clean tidy and roomy.
Only slight grumble was the in the dining room when things run out they were a bit slow in refilling supplies.
Thoroughly reccomend this hotel

I stayed here for a week in February through Preferred Travel. As mentioned in the title, the rooms are lovely and large with two single beds plus a sofa bed. Meals are half board, buffet style and there is plenty choice. Wine is sold by the bottle to accompany your meal and if you don't drink it all, it is kept with your room number on for the next night. There is a spa in the hotel which we were given one free use of the hydro pool, sauna and steam room - the receptionist doesn't speak much English and really just leaves you to your own devices here. This was fine for me as I have used these facilities many times and knew what I was doing but for other guests who had no experience of this, it wasn't really good that they weren't instructed on the proper use of the facilities. During the week, the hotel was fairly quiet but it was completely different over the weekend when approx 500 Spanish guests checked in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool rather than a sea view as the 'sea view' rooms are at th...

An excellent base for a stay in the winter months , good buffet and quiet location on the sea front a moderate walk from the town centre. Beware although quiet during the week the weekends become very lively with the arrival of 400 plus Spanish visitors. We were on a walking holiday with Preferred Travel and enjoyed the walks led by John Keo an excellent guide.

Room Tip: in the winter month pool facing rooms get the afternoon sun

I stayed here for a week on a holiday organised by Preferred Travel. As a single traveller I was delighted with my spacious and comfortable double room with a balcony facing the leafy and quiet park. The hotel is situated on a corner away from all the high-rise developments nearby and it's easy to walk to pretty and quiet coves and beaches with very few tourists(in February - might be different later in the year)! It's also possible to walk the 3.5 kilometres to the little town of Almunecar - very Spanish in character and not very touristy. There is quite a good bus service and it's easy to reach Nerja and the beautiful village of Frigiliana if you want to avoid the steep costs of the organised excursions.

On the downside, the food wasn't very good, with green soup every day, a limited choice of puddings and overcooked fish and vegetables - not bad, but after the first couple of meals it got a bit monotonous.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the park get morning sun, and are away from the pool which even in February was noi...

We have stayed in this hotel a few times and have always enjoyed our time there.
The hotel is lovely, rooms very spacious easily adequate for families. Pool area is well kept and lobby is lovely too. The hot is in a quiet area if you're looking for a hotel close to loads of bars and resteraunts don't come here , there is a park next door to hotel that has a small bar and a couple of resteraunts within a few minutes walk. Just a few minutes walk away you will find playa del Tesoro a lovely cove like beach with 2 beach bars , a really pretty beach and great for kids.
The hotel has tended to have a lot of Spanish guests when we have stayed this I find a bonus as it means the food us more Spanish style and not Brit style. Cannot fault the food in anyway great variety all very fresh and tasty, even the pickiest eater would find something they liked.
We will certainly return again in the future
