I booked MHBH based on the positive reviews found on tripadvisor. Although we only stayed here one night at the end of our trip in Spain, we thought it would be a nice way to round-out our vacation.
First the good, Mercedes and her staff exceeded expectations for friendliness and helpfulness. When I emailed asking if they could help with a dinner reservation in advance of our stay, they were more than willing to accommodate. The terrace and pool area are beautifully appointed and provide a nice way to spend a quiet afternoon. They serve a full hot breakfast with many offerings on an outdoor, covered patio with sea views in the distance.
Compared to other top-rated boutique hotels and B&Bs we’ve stayed, the rooms fell short. Although the room was spotless and nicely decorated, a firm mattress and flat pillows made for a less than restful sleep. We found the Java room to be cramped. It’s tolerable for a shorter stay, but could be an issue for a longer visit. The shower offered good pressure, but soaked the floor and sink areas. No bottled water is available in the rooms. The hotel also had a strong perfume smell throughout the main level, which distracted from the otherwise pleasant ambiance.
One final note, the tripadvisor “on the beach” classification for the hotel is a bit misleading and could cause disappointment for some. The hotel is located at the back of a lovely, quiet neighborhood and is perched up high, allowing for wonderful sea and mountain views. It’s about a 1 mile drive to the beach.
