“March break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Had a great week at the hotel. Room was spacious and comfortable. The view from the room was what it was all about. From watching the sun rising, to cruise ships going into Malaga before dawn was what I wanted from the sea view. The breakfast was exactly what you would expect. Found the usual assortment of nationalities which I always think makes a good mix of guests. The hotel is spotless. The pool area great. Remember you can rent a towel for €10 deposit. We did stock the mini bar with lager, soft drink and water so rental was free. As mentioned before the walls are very thin. Spoke to reception as our neighbours were having a heated discussion, dealt with immediately.

Room Tip: Book a sea view.

Thankyou for commenting on the breakfast at the hotel. It is important for us to give good service and that the products we serve are of good quality. Thanks also for commenting on the problems that you had with the noise from another room; it is important that you advise reception immediately in these cases. The only thing I think you have wrong is regarding the pool towels because we lend them totally free without any deposit. I do not understand what happened; it must have been confusion.

I stayed here in in March with my daughter as an 18th Birthday surprise just for a long weekend. I found the rooms clean and tidy and adequately sized with nice enough bathrooms. Some of the staff were chatty, while others I found were not and maybe this is because of the language barrier, but it didn't make us feel very welcomed.

The biggest problem I found was the very very thin walls of the room which meant that my daughter and I spent an excruciatingly embarrassing first night subjected to the sounds of our next door neighbours! To the credit of the hotel, I did report the problem immediately and asked the following morning to be moved, which we were without any problem at all - Still, be warned...

The location is good, right opposite the beach and around a 15 minute walk uphill to the town. Local bars and restaurants differ considerably in price I found for drinks and food, but if you are looking for good English food, head to the Mary Rose Restaurant or if you fancy something a little more Spanish, any of the restaurants opposite the hotel are pretty good.

First of all thank you for choosing Hotel Isabel for your visit. I am very sorry that you had problems with noise from the next room. Many times the problem is not so much the thickness of the walls but the level of shouting by customers from other rooms. It is best to inform reception at the time so that the receptionist can call the other room to request that they be quiet whatever time it may be.

We recently stayed for a week in this hotel and were very pleased with the whole experience. The staff were friendly and efficient and the hotel clean and airy. Fantastic view over the sea and close to bars and restaurants so we didn't use the hotel restaurant. A walk into the town gives you a good appetite with the hilly pathways. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: sea view a few floors up is fantastic.

Check in was very efficient and helpful front desk staff. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Good oceans view and balcony. Free wifi but only for checking email. If you want to look at movies etc you will need to pay to upgrade. Clean Beach very close by and a supermarket. Overall a very enjoyable stay and we will be back this summer!

Nice clean rooms which are in order and keept so nice during our stay.

All staff very kindly and helpfull, no matter what question was brought up - always helpfull.
Smaller pool area - but the beach is just across the road, nice wide beach (very hot "Sand") and so nice water to get a "cooler" in...
Many nice shops in the nearby area which is nice for an afternoon walk, having a cooffe or snack nearby.

Breakfast is top nice and very well selected - worth every cent...

I would go here again and do that soon i believe.

Best compliments to Hotel Isabel -

Room Tip: upgrade to superior rooms with sea wiew and balcany... thats nice in the evening/mornings its well...
