“A charming, stylish and little hotel in a real Andalucian town - great value for money.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2010

The Al-Andalus is only a few years old so has all up to date features (air con, modern bathroom, internet access etc) but is built and decorated in the traditional Andalucian style. It is close to the centre of Torrox, which is a real working Spanish town, not a tourist trap - although there are a number of Northern European residents - but which is also only 4km from the beach resort of Torrox Costa (a 15 minute, 1 Euro bus journey) and 45km from Malaga (a 90 minute, 3 Euro bus journey). Torrox is a maze of narrow, winding, hilly streets full of mainly white houses - and lots of pet cats! The hotel has a lovely terrace with fantastic views north towards the mountains. The hotel owners were charming and happy to help, despite my very schoolboy-level Spanish!

We stayed at the Hotel Al Andalus for six nights. It was excellent value for money. The rooms were clean and quite large. The hotel has recently been refurbished and all areas were smart and modern.. There is a lovely view from the small terrace balcony at the back of the hotel.
Although there is no guest parking there is a large free car park in the town which is about 7 minutes walk away, note that the streets can be a bit steep in places.
We ate at the hotel on several occasions, and the food was beautifully cooked and above what we had expected. Recommend the wild boar.
However the most important feature of this hotel is the wonderful welcome from the family that run it. Everyone was very friendly and eager to help. The gentleman who runs the hotel (whose name we unfortunately forgot to write down) made the holiday something very special.
Although no one spoke much English we got by with a phrase book and a lot of laughing.
Torrox pueblo is a quiet and attractive town which makes a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area.
We all highly recommend this hotel and the wonderful staff who give it such a friendly and warm atmosphere.
