A legendary venue for paragliders as co-owner Dirk is a top flying guide, this is also a great place for diving or other aquatic sports. Outstanding service, outstanding food, great bar, great owners. We will be back for more!

Reviewed 10 September 2009

The Hotel California is located on the Costa Tropical, and there are beaches all around, and snorkeling/scuba diving options nearby. The owners, Tracy and Dirk, are very personable and generous in their recommendations and help planning your day. Dirk conducts parasailing trips, and so some of their hotel guests are their to use his guide services. This hotel is really for anyone wanting to have a visit to the southern coast of Spain, away from the highrises and overdeveloped touristy areas of the Spanish coastline. Almunecar is a smaller town with mostly Spanish travellers, and would appeal to travelers who like more immersion in the culture of the countries they visit. Tracy and Dirk really make this hotel special--it's as though you've reached an oasis in the desert. They are a pleasure to talk to.
The hotel decor is moorish-influenced, bohemian, with rich colors. The bar-lounge and patio are open to the air and very cozy for spending leisurely siesta time with the hosts. Breakfasts are very good, and a good price.
