“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

This was our second time staying in the hotel and it certainly wont be our last. We even had the same room as before which was lovely.This was our first time to book the breakfast option and we weren't disappointed, lovely selection of hot and cold food every morning with plenty of everything. Hotel is spotless clean and even the cleaning ladies are so friendly. We had a sea view which is well worth paying a bit extra for.
The only down side was when we stayed before we had BBC channels on the TV but this time they weren't there so my husband asked at reception and the lady said that the technician was off that day but she would send him up the day after, however when we asked her the following day she said she would send him up but he never did come. I don't think it was his fault I feel he didn't get the message. It wasn't a big deal but it would have been nice to watch something other than SKY news.

Room Tip: Pay the bit extra for Sea view you wont be disappointed!!!!

Let me first thank you for visiting us and highlighting the cleanliness of
the hotel, which is an important point. Regarding the BBC channels I am
sorry that the receptionist did not explain what the problem was, as it was
not a technical issue that we could correct. We reported earlier this year
that all BBC channels are no longer in free to view and so we're trying are
trying to find other British channels that can be received by us but there
are very few. This problem is not only for us but for the whole country. We
can not even pay for the service because you must be a holder of a British
bank account. I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Booked this hotel for a long weekend, for my 50th birthday.
Not a lot of planning - booked after a short conversation in a restaurant - "Shall we ? - Why not ?"
My only stipulation . . . . A room close to the sea, with a sea view.

This hotel covered all the expectations and more . . and more . . and more !!
When we checked in, the gent at reception commented that we had booked the best two rooms in the hotel (we went as two couples). He said "You don't just have a se view, you have a sea view from your beds. We weren't disappointed.

I thought about telling you all which room we booked but that could result in the rooms being booked up, when we want them next year (so I won't).

The hotel was in a great location, it was very clean and the rooms were large and comfortable.
The staff were very friendly and worked hard to ensure everyone had a good time.
Breakfast was excellent, fresh every morning, with plenty of choice.

Pool area was clean and comfortable. It was small enough to produce a nice atmosphere, with fellow travellers, who we had never met before.

We will definitely be back so please don't tell anyone which rooms we booked.

Thank You

Room Tip: Sorry - Our room was excellent - Can't tell you which one it was.

Lovely position with half of rooms overlooking a very well kept beach.

Really helpful and friendly staff.

Excellent buffet breakfast with good choice of hot and cold items.

Pool area very clean with plenty of sun beds.
our rooms was comfortable, clean and fairly spacious..

I think the hotel is probably more suited for short breaks rather than weeks at a time but would thoroughly recommend this hotel. I would most certainly go back and that is unusual for me.

Just returned here from a fabulous week at the Hotel Isabel. Cannot complain about anything, Ideal location, lovely hotel, staff very nice and the hotel is absolutely spotless. Pool area fantastic and tranquil and food at the poolside restaurrant was excellent and great value for money. We had a lovely side sea view and it was lovely to sit in the evening and watch the ships (and planes) coming in. One evening we came back after having our evening meal out and there was a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting in our room for our return. What a lovely touch and lovely surprise this was for us. We will definitely be back and want to thank the staff of the Hotel Isabel for making our stay there very special.xxx

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.
