“a real spanish gem”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Having just spent 4 nlghts at this truly beautiful hotel. I was totally impressed with our stay in Belamadena Pueblo. This old world village is to die for. The hotel and staff were super. Special mention to Jose who pretty much accommodated every request. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with. This hotel and its great village are not to be missed. Wish we never had to leave.Cant wait to return.

Excellent well managed hotel in the centre of a pretty traditional Spanish village. Excellent buffet breakfast. Bar and tapas available practically all day; does not cater for evening meals but plenty of choice within walking distance. Spotlessly clean and with excellent staff. Intend to return in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony with sea view. Room 301 meets that spec.

I recently stayed here and apart from a very unheated cold swimming pool this place is a gem, location is fantastic and the staff in all areas first class go and enjoy the Pueblo is a beautiful village with all the Spanish atmosphere and tapas small shops you require. Out on the main road is a little too noisy for me but you have that choice and get the bus to Mijas fantastic little place make sure you arrive for 12 noon as they have flamenco in the square

Room Tip: ask for a high floor with a view as the inner rooms can be dark

We have just returned from a stay at La Fonda. We were dropped off by the mini bus at the bottom of a hill and told to take the glass lift up and when we stepped out it was like walking into another world, spotless white bulidings with teracotta rooftops. The hotel was amazing our room on the 3rd floor had beautiful views and a terrace to sit out on, it was well worth the extra few pounds. As everyone else has said the breakfast was lovely freshly cooked eggs everyday and friendly efficient staff looking after everyone. We will definately be recommending La Fonda to friends and hope to return next year. We booked our transfers with malaga shuttlebus again a great service for 14 euro's each return. You can get a bus to any of the nearby resorts for 1.55 euro's, they run regularly from the top of the road or 10 euro's in a cab if you prefer.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sun terrace are definately worth the few extra pounds. robes and slippers in room and f...

What a beautiful hotel , wish we stayed longer . The staff were all really nice and really cared about you having a good stay. Wow to the breakfast and the service their. We have never seen a breakfast buffet like it, everything was lovely and fresh. The rooms were very spacious and clean and comfortable. The roof top sunbathing area was lovely and comfortable with great loungers. Thankyou to La Fonda for a lovely few days.

Room Tip: Room 205 overlooking pool lovely.

My friend and I found this wonderful hotel whilst we were at the restaurant La Fuente last September, and decided to give it a try this year when we were back in the region. Were we disappointed? No way it was perfect, our room on the 4th floor had rooms with views to die for, breathtaking. The room itself was very tasteful, and we had a bottle of champagne and a nice plate of fruit, and chocolates, probably because of a bit of a mix up in bookings by one of the staff, which was very quickly rectified, when they discovered the error. The dining room was very nice, and the food excellent, and very well laid out too its best advantage. In fact I would say the Croissants there were even better than Bettys Cafes in Yorkshire, and they take some beating. The very nice young man who came to our table asked If we wanted anything cooking fresh, ie Full breakfast, crepes, omelettes. We will definatley return there. Everything was wonderful, oh unless like me you've got bad knees and not good on the stairs, no lift to 4th floor!!! Only one minor hiccup .

Room Tip: Fourh floor for spectacular views
