“Better than average, if not truly excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

I got a cheap last minute deal at nearly half the full price and asked for a quiet room. We wanted a bit of beach time with easy access into the city centre, for four nights.

The room overlooked the lovely park next door, with black swans, turtles and huge fish in the lake. We had a glimpse of the sea and despite the noisy road the room was quiet enough. Air con worked well.

The room itself was satisfactory in every way. The hotel may be design led, as they say, but design sometimes gets in the way of function. Huge heavy breakfast cups ensure your coffee is always cold, for instance. A glass bathroom door cuts out no noise or light in either direction. As the beds were the wrong size for the built in recess, you bumped your head every time you tried to sit up against the headboard, while still having plenty of scope to lose stuff down the gap. But these are minor points.

To address other points made previously, the reception staff were serious looking rather than unfriendly. Breakfast was generally good, though the coffee situation was not. There was a machine which had broken down and the flasks of coffee which were provided were not very hot. Without the machine there was no tea either.

There are buses a short walk away which take you into town for 1.30 euros and there is a taxi rank just outside the hotel. .You can borrow a beach towel for a 10 euro deposit. The beach is nice, with showers, loungers for hire, and a particularly nice beach bar called La Campana.

All in all, for the price I paid, I was more than satisfied. If there were a category of good, rather than very good, it would give it that.

Picked this hotel because I figured if I was going to pay 20€ for a cab no matter what might as well stay at a nicer hotel near the beach. It was that. Room, hotel, location and staff was all good...only thing that could have been better was the bed. It wasn't very good for a 4 star hotel but still worth what I payed for it.

A cheap taxi ride from the centre of Malaga, taxis right outside the hotel, or an even cheaper bus ride. The hotel is clean and very modern, the room was large and very comfortable, with the biggest bed I've ever seen in a hotel,, wifi is free throughout the hotel, service is good and the restaurant more than pleasant, so there is very little downside.
We paid for a sea view and could see the sea, albeit between the apartment blocks over the road. Would definitely consider staying here again if was in the area.

After a bad experience in LaLinea, we left early in search of a room in Malaga (with no reservations)
We took a chance, and the staff treated us as nicely as if we were staying for a month....and not just one night!
Arrived at 1130, and only waited 30 minutes for a lovely room on the park side, but with a nice ocean view.
Bed was terrific, room couldn't have been cleaner, and lots of storage space.
Just across the street is the beach, with lots of beach "chiringuitos" or beach shacks serving up fresh fish.

Room Tip: We liked the park side, mid building....just a bit back from traffic. 411

My aunt broke her leg on a cruise and we were disembarked at Malaga. Hubby (at home) looked around for somewhere for me to stay while auntie was in hospital (horror story there, but moving on!). Quite a find.

I don't speak a word of Spanish but needn't have worried - quite the most helpful reception and bar staff I could have come across. They phoned the hospital for me to ask questions I needed answers to but couldn't ask myself!

I stayed in Room 414, opposite the pond garden and with views of the sea to my left. Trendy black and white theme, comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, nice bathroom - so far so good! I REALLY liked the inner bedroom door (bathroom on other side of it). This means that if your neighbours come in later than you, you are less likely to hear them. In fact, I never heard mine at all and slept like a log. Bliss when you're exhausted after a taxing day at the hospital . . . or not, if you're lucky!

Breakfast is a buffet and there's something for everyone - the bread is exceptional in Spain, isn't it?! Bar staff are friendly and helpful too. Room service was attentive and had excellent soup and salads (I'm a vegetarian).

What really made this place a godsend for me though was the staff and their command of English. Mercedes and Eduardo were fabulous. Thank you again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ponds - the higher the better.

This is a very modern hotel located near the beach west of Malaga city. It is quite a distance to the city centre, but there is an excellent bus service less than five minutes walk from the hotel. The bus is number 16. This brings you to the centre of Malaga for €1.30. There are taxis parked just outside the hotel. It is also possible to hire a bike at the hotel.
The breakfast room is very modern and airy. Breakfast is very good and the service is excellent.The bar is small and is really not much of a feature for such a large hotel.
The room was very nice. We were on the fifth floor with a reasonable view of the sea. However, the hotel uses energy efficient lighting. This can be offputting in a long corridor at night as the lights can take afew seconds to come on.
The front desk staff were not as pleasant as one would expect. I requested some things to be done and, invariably, had to renew the request a few hours later. The second request was not appreciated.

We spent three nights at the Vincci and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lobby was bright and cheerful and the room was spacious and well fitted with modern facilities. Even the WiFi was free.
The restaurant had a reasonable dinner menu and the breakfast was good with a wide range of buffet food. No swimming pool or sun terraces but the magnificent Malaga beach is only two minutes walk away. I will return to Vincci.

Room Tip: Rooms to the south are bright with lots of sunshine, but closer to the busy road.
