“Holiday bliss”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

La Carihuela has it all...it's clean beach & promenade, varied restaurants, small shops, which all give a friendly village feel. I have been coming to this resort for many years and feel very safe, especially on the beach at Playa Juani. Try the lively America bar run by the very friendly Victor ( who never forgets a face) or just stroll along the prom in the evening to either Benalmadena or torremolonos...it's a great way to people watch! I recommend a bus trip to Mijas from the easily situated bus stops on the main road for less than 5 euros for 2 people! The plus side is the bus takes you up through the residential part of Carihuela, a joy to see. Also nearby is the train station at Montemar which takes you right to/from Malaga airport, again for just a few euros.
This is a gem of a resort, quite separate from Torremolinos itself.
