“A pretty place away from the tourists hubs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Let's start with the location which is usually the main point for me. The place is not in the center of the city but easy to access by car, taxi or by bus, however, if you take the pace, prepare for 10min or so uphill (or downhill) walk - taxi from the city center is 10euros. So not a problem!

The neighborhood is rather upscale and you will enjoy a nice view .We we lucky to have dinner at the hotel while a local band was performing which was real nice, with a night view of Malaga. It is a superb-place if you a light sleeper; Perfect for relaxing vacation! I don't think I would trade it for a place downtown even if I have to take a taxi late in the evening. Remember, the restaurant is quite famous and worthwhile tasting the food!

Rooms are OK, normal as I say - nothing fancy but sufficient! My issue were the pillow which was too high but you can always find a way around.
Breakfast didn't look attractive but you can get coffee and juice and then relax around the pool preparing for the day.

After 3 days in the centre of malaga we (my girlfriend and I)decided to go on the outskirts to unwind.
Our initial thoughts, after the stay in a swanky state of the art hotel, were mixed. However, this soon faded and we loved the hotel within the hour and continued to do so for the rest of our 4 days/nights.
The hotel itself has amazing views, is quiet, has a good outside area with pool but the best thing is without doubt the staff! I had read about the friendliness of them, but didn't believe they could make your stay that good until I was there. Nothing was too much for them!
The downside of the the hotel
1- it is out of the way, so if you were wanting to head into malaga itself it isn't the easiest. There is a bus at the bottom of the (steep) hill which is cheap and takes 20 mins to get into malaga, but there aren't many places to go or eat about if you don't have a car.
2- the room isn't "modern"- however, this is my being over critical as I don't go on holiday to spend time in my room.

Overal I really enjoyed my time here and would go back for sure! For a quiet and relaxing break I would definitely recommend this hotel! Further to this, the food at the hotel is some of the best I have eaten!

Gorgeous hotel - up in the mountains. The view alone is worth the price of (very reasonable) admission. We had room # 2 - it has an upper loft with 2 beds. Great for a family of 4. Beautiful pool, excellent restaurant with a picture window view. Lovely people running the place - parking directly our front of the main entrance. A real pleasure, and #1 in Malaga for good reasons.

This hotel has one good thing....the view.

Everything else was either terrible or so mediocre I would never pay money again to stay here.

Food -- terrible.
Service -- incompetent.
Rooms - bland.
Walls - paper thin. So noisy, I was unable to sleep at all.

I would rather sleep in the back seat of my car than stay at this place again.

This beautiful hotel and restaurant high atop a hill overlooking Malaga is stunning. However, over and above the view is the fantastic cuisine where each dish brings a fresh discovery of flavors. The staff stand out as the most delightful part. Made to feel special and pampered, I also felt welcomed into their world, a world of excellence with a family touch and true enjoyment of life. I highly recommend the Friday Music evenings with tapas and cocktails. But, if you have the time, enjoy a full meal. You will be delighted!

Just returned from 3 nights at the Villa Guadalupe. The hotel was a real gem. It's set high above the city of Malaga with wonderful views in every direction. We had room 11 which unfortunately didn't have a balcony and there was no chance of changing as the hotel was full. However the room was clean, comfortable and perfect for a short stay. Air con worked well too. The staff at the hotel are what truly make your stay special...they are just so helpful...about everything. From recommending an absolutely brilliant restaurant in the city, to ensuring my veggie pal actually got delicious vegetarian meals in Amador (hotel restaurant)...nothing was too much trouble.
Walking down to the bus stop is a real expedition...not so much the distance but the vertical hills you need to hike down; the bus service is frequent and takes you right into town.
The pool is fab...I've never had a hotel pool all to myself before ...it was a great experience! All in all we loved this hotel and intend to return.
