As has been said in previous reviews, the room was very clean, the bed was comfortable & the staff were helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
If you have the Half Board offer suggested by the staff on Reception, this means the Starter Buffet, the Sweet Buffet & the Breakfast Buffet. We had expected a main course. The starter buffet was plentiful and delicious but it's better if you know what to expect. Breakfast was well worth it as the airport cafes are much more expensive.
There is a Burger King very close by and a little cafe with food the other way but we didn't have time to try it.
The hardest part about the Campanile is actually getting there. We met a couple who had got lost and spent over an hour getting there from the airport. The hotel is set back off the Avenida De Velasquez , directly behind the Repsol garage.
It is easier to get to from the East , ie going towards the airport. On the Avenida de Velasquez you go over a flyover , then on your right you will pass a SsangYong Chevrolet dealer, then a large Citreon Garage... very shortly after this, at an overhead sign saying MA 22 / Pologones Industriales, move into the parallel side road accessing the Repsol garage. You will come to the Repsol garage.. you can turn right immediately in front of this [ or if you fill up, bear right after the pumps into the small road that will loop round to the Commercial Park. At the small roundabout go right & you are at the back of the Campanile The entrance to the Campanile car park is in the side street on your right.
If you approach from the airport, leave the MA21 straight after you have crossed the river. Follow the sign MA 22/ Parque Commercial . At the roundabout at the end of the slip road go round it & back over the bridge over the Avenida De Velasquez ( that you've just left). You will see the large Commercial Park ( Bauhaus, PC City etc) ahead to your right. The Campanile is the large whitish building to the right of PC City Go straight ahead & turn right after the roundabout into the Commercial Park . If you keep following the road around to the right through the park then it will bring you to a small roundabout behind the Campanile. Go left here & you will be at the back of the Campanile . If you can get to the Commercial Park at least you are not heading away from the hotel at on a fast dual carriageway while discussing divorce !
From the airport as mentioned there is a minimum 15 or 20 euro charge for a 5 minute journey.
This is perfectly possible.
From the airport get either the A Express Bus (2 euros) every half hour at 20 mins past and 10 minutes to the hour or the 19 ( 1.20 euros) on the hour. Both buses stop at Avda. de Velázquez (La Concha) .The bus stop is opposite the Repsol garage, not long after crossing a wide slow river and Burger King on the left. You have to walk 100 metres to cross the Avenida by the footbridge ramp (fine unless you have masses of luggage) & then walk back & turn in front of garage.
You can get to the airport for a flight very easily using the buses. The A & 19 both stop at Avda. de Velázquez (Azucarera) outside the garage. If you click on the bus-stop on google maps it will give you the bus times The times are more approximate ( our bus came early) & there are 3 an hour. This is what we did as we had arranged to have our car picked up from the hotel. If we stayed after a flight we would get our car from here. We have always found Carambar Cars very good and helpful.
NB It is necessary to put your hand out to tell the A [express] bus to stop - not sure about the 19.
If you want to go into the centre of Malaga the number 10 as well as 19 & A all go there. On May 1st ALL the shops are closed except for places to eat and drink.
