The location of this hotel is excellent, especialy if you rent a car, like we did. Because in front of the hotel and in some other spots in the vecinity you will find 24h free parking! It's the white striped alveoles.
You might want not to book a room with front side windows, because on some hours in the morning the guys that pick up the garbage are using noisy equipments.
They have a nice terrace, smoker friendly. The hotel is near the old town and the beach. When we went to the beach, we didn't like the sand and the sea was very dirty!!! The massage service on the beach and a nice restaurant saved the day.
Thw wi-fi signal is very poor in some rooms and the acces is possible by a code that expires in three hours. Very important... you can reuse the codes.
There is a very friendly atmosphere when you get to the hotel because they have some cool plants with a great smell in front!
The staff speaks english and in the reception you can find flyers about the main attractions from Costa del Sol.
The hotel is not that new and some parts ar affected by humidity. Fortunately we had nothing to do with those rooms. If you go to the beach(not only in Malaga, but other cities from Andalucia) you might not find sunbeds. So ask the reception for umbrellas and beach towels.
I eat a lot in the morning. For breakfast they bring one piece of jamon serano/ salami, 1 slice of cheese, 1 piece of bread, 1 yougurt, some milk and cereals, a small bowl with pieces of fruits, 1 glass of orange fresh(it really is natural and fresh), 1 croissant, some fruit jam and butter and 1 coffe. We stayed for a week and I didn't like the repetition of this breakfast every day. Plus I don't like that the was no buffet...
One day a guy kindly asked if I want more of someting, and I wanted some serrano, chees and bread for another bocadillo. I asked again the second day anothet guy and he was not that friendly... I also asked for an extra glass of water and some more coffe but he seemed to forget. As I reminded him he kept bringing one thing at a time... When finally asked the third time for some coffe he brought me 2 in 1. It was an unpleasant event that didn't repeated, but it happened...
