Hotel Villa de Laredo
Ranked #24 of 37 Hotels in Fuengirola
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We booked a last minute holiday "on a whim" and decided upon Hotel Villa de Laredo for our bed & breakfast accommodation. We stayed for 8 nights.

We arrived after midnight and were checked in by a friendly gentleman who spoke very good English. After receiving the necessary keys and directions, we went up to our room. First impressions of the room weren't good, unfortunately. Far smaller than expected with 2 single beds pushed together and an unnecessarily large sofa filled the room so we couldn't even wheel the small hand luggage suitcases to the wardrobe, never mind the bigger one. All had to be heaved onto the bed and off-loaded the other side in order to empty the contents into the wardrobe. Generally tired decor but everything was clean. All that said, the room served the purpose for which we required it so it wasn't really a problem for us.

A safe was provided at no extra cost, which was a pleasant surprise. All rooms have a balcony and although our room was situated at the side of the hotel, the balcony still afforded us views of the beach and the sea. There is a small bar / restaurant just to the rear of the hotel which stays open until 1 am but it seems to be a place for locals rather than holiday makers so there are no rowdy drunks creating noise. We actually had a drink in there one evening and the owner made us feel very welcome. (Bar Diamante)

A buffet breakfast is available every morning in the dining room. There's no hot food available so if you want a full English you'll have to eat elsewhere. Fruit juices, tea and coffee, bread (and use of the toaster) cold meats and cheese as well as cereals, croissants and similar sufficed. All decent enough, for what it was :)

The bedrooms are equipped with en-suite bathroom with shower (very good) over the bath and a wall mounted hair dryer. There is a TV which shows 3 or 4 English channels if you should wish to watch TV while on a sunshine holiday! A small fridge, or mini bar as they prefer to call it, which was stocked with 4 small bottles of water when we arrived. You do pay for these upon departure if you use them. A maid service occurs daily which included bed making and replacing the towels.

We had neighbours to the side and above us but we never heard anything from any of them so there is good sound proofing in this hotel. There is a small pool on the roof of the building with a dozen or so sunbeds around it. We took a dip every day and each time stayed for an hour or so and loved it up there. The views are good, the pool refreshing and in the main, we were alone up there! Maybe the reason for not many people using the pool is the lack of parasols as there is no shade so you are in the sun for the whole time you are there. That suits me! :)

The location of the hotel is fantastic. Close enough for a leisurely walk into the busier part of Fuengirola but far enough away not to be bothered by late night / early morning revelers. Also, a pleasant stroll towards Los Boliches where the atmosphere is a little more refined and restaurants are plentiful! Of course, the beach is right there on the doorstep too.

Okay, the Ritz it aint but we found it to be a comfortable and pleasant stay and would certainly use the hotel again in the future.

de Laredo is situated opposite one of Fuengirola's best beaches. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the very best restaurants and bars, and during the day the roof top pool is absolutely superb.The rooms are excellent and cleaned every morning to a very high standard. Every room is well furnished and the air conditioning is first class. The staff make you feel extremely welcome and nothing is to much trouble. I cant recommend Villa de Laredo highly enough 10 out of 10

I usually Go to Fuengirola at least twice a year for a boys outing, usually stay 3 to 4 days. This is the first time I have stayed at the Villa de Laredo Hotel. Value for money compared to other hotels in Fuengirolais fantastic. I had a room at the back of the hotel, room was very clean but obviously no view, excellent shower and very clean bathroom,A/C was working fine, only down side was there was a local bar just below and across the street and they were quite noisy into the early hours. Breakfast was vey basic but did the job and as I say for the price this was still above my expectations. Location was fantastic right on the sea front with everything within walking distance. Have already re-booked to return in September.

Room Tip: Its worth paying that little bit more for a sea view room

Booked 4 nights double room BB with Travel Republic- for the princely sum of £42.33 a night. What a good hotel, clean, helpful check in and a good choice of continental breakfast. Had a sea view and agree with others that it is noisy early in the morning as the beach is being cleaned. But what a view, the sea sun and sand, and the boats coming and going. Its a view worth a lot more. All the beaches are clean and well maintained, and the one opposite theHotel shelves gently, As a bonus, there is a small pool on the roof, even better views there!. Will certainly return

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are noisy, but worth it for the view.

We spent 5 nights in this hotel. We first chose a room with a sea view. We loved looking out at the water and the beach, but it all comes with a price. Noise. There was much traffic noise very late at night (after midnight), from party-goers and nearby establishments emptying their bottles in the recycle bins located few meters from the hotel and under our balcony (done after close or very early in the morning). And this is only April!! Cannot imagine what the summer months would be like. Yes, one can close the sliding doors, but then it becomes too stuffy and warm. After 2 sleepless nights, we changed to one of the corner rooms, which still gave us our seaview (there are only 5). The noise still existed, but not as bad except for the emptying of bottles. (Noise travels upward unfortunately). The rooms were very clean and the personnel were so very nice. One thing to note- they do lock the doors sometime around 1AM, therefore you have to ring the bell. There is someone there at night as well to let you in. The hotel is perfectly situated. Everything is within walking distance and if you wish to go to Malaga, you are a 30 minute taxi ride away, which costs an average of 35-40 euros. The breakfast is continental and is generous enough. If you wish to watch TV, then you better know Spanish. I would love to stay there again closer to the season, but I would have to first find out if they have air-conditioning first, so I can close the doors to the noise.

Room Tip: Rooms with seaviews will have noise from the street below. Be it cars throughout the night or peopl...
