“Brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Just back after spending six nights in this great value for money hostal, making it the second time we have stayed here. It is well situated, being about a ten minute stroll to the beach and easy to get to the town centre ie no hills to climb. Good size rooms, comfy beds and a really friendly owner definitely make this a place I would recomend.

We stayed in this small hotel for 2 days whilst touring Spain. My wife had broken her foot just days before our visit and the owner Jose Luis couldn't have been helpful... He even came out into the street to welcome us when we arrived. The rooms were spotlessly clean ... bed very comfy and we even had the luxury of our own veranda which was perfect for us to sit outside during the day as my wife wasn't very mobile. Breakfast was served with a smile and Jose Luis just couldn't do enough for us. Very helpful at recommending places to see and restaurants to visit. This hotel has the most amazing personal service. It was such a pleasure to stay in a hotel where you felt so much at home. Jose Luis is obviously very proud of his hotel and rightly so!! I will be recommending this hotel to all my family and friends and will definitely return in the future. Well done Jose Luis ... What an amazing service you provide !!

Room Tip: Our room was at the top of the hotel and the lift was right outside our door and the private veranda...

We had a room with the window looking out over a small patio. It was quite which was great for our baby. In the morning we had breakfast, simple but good. There was always a chat with the owner in half Spanish, half English. It was fun and we could appreciate his way of communication. Jose Luis helped us with some information about restaurants and travelling info.

Room Tip: In the back rooms are quit when travelling with a child. On the first floor you have a patio to read...

We had a fantastic stay at the Hostal Palomares. The owner was so friendly and welcoming, much appreciated thank you! Our room was lovely and bathroom clean. We did have a problem with a blocked shower, but that was quickly sorted without a problem. I always think that how a hotel deals with its problems, rather than the fact that the problems exist in the first place, is what matters!! Would stay here again without a problem, thankyou for a lovely stay!

We spent a wonderful week at Hostal Palomares and could not have wished for better accommodation. The Palomares is a small, very traditional guest house, which is spotlessly clean throughout and very comfortable. The owner, Jose-Luis, is an amazing host. We were welcomed like old friends and nothing was too much trouble for him. He did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. He lent us books on the local area, including some amazing walks in the Sierra Nevada to suit all capabilities. Our room was very comfortable, and had a lovely terrace. Breakfast was hearty and extremely fresh - an excellent start to the day! We will certainly be returning!

Stayed for 1 night and were made very welcome by our host who could not have been more friendly and helpful. Our room on the fourth floor was very clean and smart and had a nice terrace with great views. We had tapas at a bar recommended by the owner and were not disappointed. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Amongst other things we were served a platter of fresh fruit which was delicious. All in all a very pleasant stay.

My husband and I have just spent six days at the hostal Palomares. We arrived late evening after nine thirty to a welcoming smile from Jose.
We were shown our room (which was lovely) on the fourth floor. It had a small kitchen and a door which led onto a terrace which had lovely views across Salobrena and to the snow topped mountains.
Breakfast was served every morning between 8.30-10.30, a really nice start to the day. During one of the nights spent
there we had quite severe rain fall. Just as we were going out to eat Jose appeared with a rather large umbrella, a really thoughtful man.
If we ever return to Salobrena in the future I will not hesitate to return to this wonderful Hostal!
