The hotel is superb, Christa and Jan are the most welcoming and helpful hosts you could wish for and Velez Malaga is a buzzy town with lots of very reasonably priced bars and restaurants.
Contrary to earlier reviews - whilst some Spanish language would be helpful - we found little difficulty conversing - many of the local people speak reasonable English and were friendly and helpful.
Most bars offer tapas - beer and single tapas for under 2 euros - and we paid no more than 50 euros for a very good quality meal for 2 inclusive of drinks throughout the evening....generally you could enjoy a meal and drinks for considerably less.
Access to nearby Torre Del Mar - the nearest beach - was 16 euros return by taxi - only c 10 mins trip.
We can only agree with the earlier hotel reviews in respect of the hotel decor and ambience.
Highly recommended - our thanks to Christa and Jan for a wonderful break.
