“Lovely hostal”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Hostal Palomares was a fantastic place to stay. Jose, the host, was extremely inviting and friendly and went out of his way to ensure that we were comfortable. We were in a double room overlooking the patio which was very comfortable. Jose also helped us with many other things including a walking guide for the surrounding area, restaurant recommendations and hiring a car. It was an easy walk from the bus stop in the heart of town, about 10 minutes walk from the beach. Breakfast was always accompanied by flamenco music and a smile! I would highly recommend this lovely little hostal in this gorgeous Andalucian seaside town.

Hostal was rated lower than other establishments which surprised us. We would rate this hostal number 1 in Salobrena. Upon checking 2 others out whilst there we found Hostal Palomares to be larger, have better facilities and better located. Jose, the owner was as others say very helpful and he even loaned me his laptop. Breakfast was excellent and we hope to return to this wonderful family run establishment one day. We have recommended it to friends and they also have been very pleased with their stay there. Australia

The owner was a very friendly, chatty and helpful man. The rooms are large and clean with very nice bathrooms. I had a view out on to a leafy courtyard. The hostal is close to the bus "station" and the town centre, but about 15 minutes walk from the beach. The room was just lovely and the breakfast was great with fresh orange juice. I would definitely recommend this hostal for great value.

This establishment run by a local family has all the traits of a nice hotel. It is comfortable, friendly and ambient with Andalucian music & art creating atmosphere throughout the establishment. We highly recommend this great hotel to a very affordable price.

Hostal Palomares is both comfortable and friendly place to stay in Salobrena. Jose, the owner was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.The rooms are clean and modern, we lacked a balcony only because we wanted a quiet stay as opposed to being on the roadside.
The Hostal offered great value for money and we had a better stay here than places that are 3 times the price. i would thoroughly recommend this place to family and friends

I spent a night in Salobreña with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. Everything is new and very tidy. We had the room with the window towards the patio. In the morning I woke up with the beautiful smell of the flowers that Jose takes good care of. Highly recommended place to charge your batteries and enjoy the beautiful town of Salobreña.

Arrived at night, tired but made to feel at home within ten minutes with a glass of a really good wine and a really warm welcome. Jose and family helped us to enjoy our stay to the full, his knowledge of where to be, eat and enjoy was freely given as was his willingness to reserve and book meals, visits etc.
Jose prepares a meal if requested, good quality and good value though it will be what is "libre," that is, you take pot luck. We were pleased with this arrangement. Only 3/4 hours drive to some really great mountain and valley hikes or ten minutes from the beach or an hour from Granada
The hotel (hostal is misleading to us Brits) was comfortable and being in the old town with all the amenities close by was a bonus for those wanting the feel of being in "real" Spain.
Very peaceful in the hotel although in town but in the old part and so by foot to the castle,beautiful old quarters etc.. Spent 2 weeks here and we will be coming back.
