This hotel is amazing. We wanted a chilled out holiday in a nice hotel in spanish surroundings and we certainly got it. We took the train from malaga to carvajal and were delighted to find the little tourist train waiting for us to take us to the hotel. Our room was lovely, we took the 'economy' room and could not have wished for anything more. It was clean, spacious and had a large terrace area. We ate at 'al rolo' restaurant twice, it was superb and so well priced. We trusted to waiter to choose the wine for us and so it came as a shock to get the bill and find the wine was only €3 a €5 a glass. The violet ice cream is fantastic. We ate at the hotel buffet restaurant on our last evening, we found the food to be worth the €18 that they charge, there was plenty of choice and a large selection of fresh meat and fish cooked to order. Wine at the restaurant was €9.50 a bottle, again well priced. The rooftop pool was definitely something special, it was so chilled out with great background music that just added to the atmosphere. Even the toilets had the 'wow' factor. We used the pool downstairs once during our stay and that was also a nice area, had the rooftop pool been full i would not of been upset at having to use the other pool.
The hotel is on a very steep hill but the train runs frequently enough. One day we had to walk up to the hotel from the beach as the train had stopped for siesta, it was difficult but not the end of the world, it just made the glass of wine at the hotel even more enjoyable!!
We spent a few days at the beach on carvajal, it was enjoyable and the food down there is great. It is very spanish and they don't speak much english but that was exactly what we wanted. We went in to fuengirola twice and found really lovely tapas bars which surprised me. Taxis back to the hotel are easy to find, just at the train station and approx €10.
The thb reserva del higueron is the only hotel i have stayed in that is actually better than it looks and is described on the website. I have already recommended it to the others and would love to stay again myself in the near future. I can appreciate that it will not suit everyone as it is so modern and so remote but for us it was perfect. A brilliant find!
