It was good value for the money. Although it was farther out of Malaga than we thought there was a regular bus service No. 11. It was near the beach and there was a supermarket nearby.
For two nights out of the three we were disturbed in the early hours by the door bell and the noise coming from the patio area. May I suggest that this area is placed out of bounds from Midnight. Our room wasn't cleaned on the Sunday morning.
Nicely located (5 mins from a beach, 15 minutes from Malaga center by a bus, shops and cafeterias nearby). Very clean, very pretty building with nice inside patio for relaxing breakfasts
The staff doesn't speak English well (but surely enough to communicate about basics). No catering facilities - but this wasn't a problem since there are nice places to eat just a few paces away.
We were given a room with a window as requested. Security was very good. Although no parking we had no difficulty finding a spot on the side streets. The room and bathroom were attractively renovated. Liked that we could walk down to the beach so easily. Staff were very friendly.
The towels were not absorbent enough and a better quality would make a difference.
The location in Pedregalejo, the quiet room
No twin beds
Although the room was as described, I personally found it a little on the dark side with insufficient natural daylight although I appreciate that this may be typically "Andalucian". For my four day stay iwith ease of access to Malaga it was ok but I would not spend any longer there.
Nothing I particularly disliked. However was a little taken aback to be asked to pay for my four night stay on arrival - this is not mentioned in the Hotel's particulars. This was requested prior to being shown my room and if I had wanted to move on to another location would have presented me with difficulties as I assume no refund would have been forthcoming.
