A very warm welcome and a BIG smile awaits you at the Hotel La Tartana. The room was just beautiful!! with a wonderful terrace looking out to sea, just perfect in every way! Dinner was superb ++++++ and the service matches this. It was nice to see Ellie again, and thank you Ellie for looking after us so well at dinner and breakfast. This small hotel really is a gem and punches well above its weight. We shall be back......

Room Tip: Room 3 is a must!! amazing views.

We stayed at this lovely hotel for two nights at the end of a busy tour. The hotel is built around a traditional patio and has a series of enchanting terraces where we dined and breakfasted. Our room had a great view of the horseshoe bay. The owners of the hotel and their staff were friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome. It is easy to park and very accessible for exploring the coast.
The hotel was great but the restaurant was really fantastic! Absolutely not to be missed. We dined there both nights and enjoyed interesting and beautifully cooked dishes. Could recommend everything we ate but in particular, the cod, and the desserts - all excellent, some outstanding!
We definitely hope to return.

Fantastic, superb, wonderful ... every positive you can think of!
We had booked a days sailing out of Marine Del Este, & our skipper recommended La Tartana for dinner & a stop-over.
We drove over from Nerja on Tuesday morning of 17th September, We checked in & our room (number 2) was beautiful. After a days sailing we returned to La Tartana, got showered & changed, then had the most wonderful dinner. Next morning we had a great breakfast before heading back to Nerja .... we were so impressed we booked in again for the Friday night!!

Room Tip: Room 2 is very nice, Room 3 has a beautiful terrace!

Thank you so much for your great review. This means so much to ourselves and our staff. We work very hard to make people feel special but sometimes it comes very easy when we meet such nice people who are clearly here to enjoy themselves. We very much hope to see you again.

We weren't staying at the hotel but met with friends there who were. They had come up from Marbella and were staying one night in this delightful gem in order that we could get together for dinner. We ate out on the terrace and the food was delicious. An excellent menu and great service. Thank you to all at La Tartana for a lovely evening!

Have just returned from an excellent week staying at La Tartana. Friendly staff who all went the extra mile, it felt like we were staying with friends for the week! Lovely Spanish style hotel, a superb view from the balcony in our room all across the bay. We ate on the terrace 3 evenings whilst we were there, excellent food and excellent service. Breakfast was very good too. The room was impeccably clean and the bed was really comfy. Sadly we are now back in cold England! But we have lovely memories of our time there.

Have just returned from an amazing stay at this little gem of a hotel. From our arrival when we were collected from the airport by the lovely Jed, to our departure a week later, everything was fantastic!! Beautiful big room, with the most comfortable bed, Fluffy white towels every day. Yummy breakfasts enjoyed out on the terrace. Candlelit dinner, again eaten out on the terrace overlooking the sea was to die for!! Mandy's menu is on par with some of the top restaurants in London.
Having stayed in some of the best hotels around the world, what makes this little hotel stand out for us, is the unique atmosphere. You feel like you are house guests staying with old friends. From the hospitable hosts Jed and Mandy, to the informative Sue and Frank and the wonderful staff, nothing is too much trouble.
Will definitely be returning with the family to this little hidden secret!!
(As for the man who previously left such an horrendous and scathing review............may I suggest some sort of therapy, as you obviously have some serious issues!!)

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are beautiful and well worth the little extra!
