This is a beautiful hotel located in a former castle overlooking Malaga and Malaga bay with fantastic gardens surrounding the hotel. We stayed in room 7 which is on the top floor and had a huge private terrace.

Please be aware that the Hotel is not in the city center and walking there will take you about 30min, so you may wish to come by car or talk a taxi (5 Euro into town).

We had a perfect stay and would definitely come back.

Absolutely stunning ! We have stayed in Malaga before but this is by far the best . We always travel around Spain by train so I was concerned we would be too far out but no problems. My partner is 75 and he found the walk into town no problem. We walked downhill and got a taxi back usually 6-8 euros
Would highly recommend this hotel .

This place is literally a small castle, apparently still in the same family for centuries. It is clearly managed with love and pride and it shows. Despite being such a unique and regal place it has a very comfy feeling and you are made to feel like you are visiting old friends. Service was excellent. Rooms are beyond reroach, all have original tile work in the bathrooms and you can tell it has been preserved in the original state as much as possible with renos only when necessary. It is hard to get there but if you drive or take a cab you will be glad you chose it. The views from the patio are amazing. Beds are comfortable and due to the fact that it was built as a castle very spacious rooms with a lot of privacy.

We arrived early in the morning and well before check in time and they tried to accomodate us as soon as possible, made us coffee and set us up in a spacious reading room area while we waited for our room. When we got the room it was spotless and had a fresh lemon scent. Had all the toiletries you could want and water bottles, tea in the room, slippers, robes the works.

Stay here, you will love it as we did and you will not want to leave!

Lovely hotel, wonderful interior with original tiles on the walls. Cosy and quiet place with superb views of the city. High standard - comfortable rooms with huge bathroom. BBC channel that you can watch is also a nice surprise. Good breakfast with fresh orange juice and scrambled eggs... Nice patio with sofas - you can really rest there....perfect!

The hotel is nothing short of spectacular - the roads are a bit confusing to get there, but we had our TomTom so we had no problem at all. We arrived on Christmas eve, were upgraded to a junior suite (Miramar), which is just exquisite - huge bedroom / living room, beautiful views. We promptly decided to "stay in" - it was storming outside and was freezing. We had not booked dinner in advance, although I had received an e-mail about it. The hotel was short staffed (it being Christmas eve) but the receptionist was extremely helpful and kind - we had a delicious meal, with a complimentary bottle of cava, which was a very nice surprise. Also, breakfast was lovely, I read another comment about the selection not being very wide, however, that was not our experience - we had choices between hot and cold dishes, and have to mention that is is not typical to get traditional egg / bacon etc in Spain for breakfast, so we were pleasantly surprised that we were able to choose between scrambled eggs, omelets, bacon etc. Yes, the hotel is quiet, yes there is no pool however, the hotel is relaxing, quiet, away from the hustle and bustle ... we loved it and would go back at the drop of a hat.

Room Tip: Consider getting a junior suite - there are only 8 rooms, and we upgraded to one - it really was not that expensive and the views that go with it is worthwhile.
