“Relaxing massage”
Review of El Hammam

El Hammam
Ranked #2 of 13 Spas & Wellness in Malaga
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

Relaxing experience in the middle of the old center of malaga! Great massage, 3 rooms al different heat and a beautiful terras with a glass of cava! Don't compare it with the real hammams in turkey, but it is still very good. The service is very good. But what I think is missing is little turkish or spanish snack for sale on the terras.

Visited this 'hammam' a couple of days after Christmas day 2012. Receptionist was on the 'phone when I went in so had to wait to be served. Small changing room ok but doubled up as a storeroom for their cleaning equipment!

The main bath area had dark grey tiles on the floor which made the place look dirty - or maybe it was. In an environment that should be lit with predominately with soothing aromatic candles it was far too bright, in fact it was brighter inside than it was outside. There was two tea towels, to help reduce light getting in, hanging over extractor vents.

The noise was from uneducated guests was excessive. There are three massage tables and the masseur came in to prepare for a client. The noise she made was a disgrace with absolutely no thought given to the people present. She even lacked educatiing/training and professionalism in how to conduct herself. Throwing an aluminimum bucket around and shouting, not talking, with her client. It was at this point I got up, changed and left (by the way the don't have a hot shower, to wash down, in the changing room).

Having been to large number of arab baths in Spain, so I know my stuff, this is not an arab bath in any shape or form, and a visit should be avoided at all costs.

i got a coupon for a day at the hammam incl massage for my birthday. my gf prorganised the time for the massage, since it should have been a nice surprise. when i arrived the guy knew nothing of my appointment, but he was very friendly and squeezed me in.

when i saw the hammam i was very disappointed. no pool, no hot baths, not even a jacuzzi!!!! only 3 small areas with a little "river" of hot water. no music, no soap as they say on the homepage either....

the massage was really nice and relaxing. but definitely way OVERPRICED for what one gets....

90 euros a person for a turkish style bath scrub, its men and women mixed. I didn't feel the scrub was as well as other turkish baths, but i guess the massage was good.
