This is a lovely, small, authentic hotel in a beautiful, quiet location near Málaga centre. It is a basic 2* but the service is first class and the cleanliness is excellent. I plan to return very soon.

Well what a great little find! Fantastic service from the team, they work 24 hours a day and are there to help with anything. Perfect roof terrace to enjoy the sun with the best view, lovely, plentiful breakfasts. Great Gin's and Cava on offer in the bar, very clean and everything within the area, supermarket, Friday morning market, the beach is a stones throw away and you have the bus into Malaga on your doorstep. Lovely little square nearby for evening meals and chilling with a drink if you don't want to venture that far, we'll be back very soon, thank you!! Even hired a bike over two days for €10.

spotlessly clean hotel with helpful friendly staff. located approx 150 metres from the beach.Underground car parking available which is a plus as the streets are extremely busy on a weekend . Continental breakfast is adequate enough. Roof terrace excellent for catching the last of the sun. free wi fi and air con. it's a little gem of a hotel for the price.

You must keep in mind, this is not an expensive hotel and rate it accordingly. I must disagree with the negative reviews below. We came in late because of our flight arrival. Patricia greeted us warmly and as arranged earlier, had placed a nice bottle of bubbly in our room. We also asked if she could make a small snack, which she did promptly and brought up to our room. The hotel is a little tired but spotlessly clean and the staff were wonderful. The typical breakfast was nice presented and good. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

We had booked and paid for 3 nights just managed to stay one night, it was awful. The room was very cold. Could not open curtains because other rooms looked in BUT there was still no outlook, brick wall. We paid over 120 euros and so the most expensive night we have spent in a hotel. When we told reception we were leaving she never even asked why?

Stayed for one night during a trip to Cala del Moral. Hotel was €32 for the night and at that price was good value. Staff were friendly, rooms were clean, hotel is basic but then it is 100m from the sea and at a great price so would not expect anything else. Parking an extra €10 (although we found free parking on the road round the back) and breakfast buffet €5.50 per head As a cheap alternative in the more Spanish part of the Costa del Sol it meets the brief

My husband and I had a 10 day reservation at this hotel in December while visiting Malaga. The rooms were very cold and damp. The small heater in the room was unable to warm it up or to keep it the air dry especially after a shower. After three nights we decided to move to another hotel because I developed a cough that kept us (and I'm sure the guests in the adjoining room) awake every night. A visit to a medical clinic confirmed I had developed bronchitis. The management refused to refund even part of our room charges which I paid in advance. I would not recommend this hotel as there are much better options in the area.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it is a typically Spanish area. Close to the beach, shops restaurants. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, even with my limited Spanish, they understood. Will be going back, next year. Lin Lin restaurant good value for money.

Stayed 2 nights in double room, bed was nice and comfortable, very clean, basic essentials all you need, really powerful shower, aircon ice cold and satellite tv. Staff at reception were absolutely brilliant, albert i think his name, works the evening was exceptional. Always going the extra mile. The beach is literally 2 mins walk, a few restaurants on the seafront serving lovely dishes. Behind the hotel about 2 mins walk is a supermarket, next door a bakery, over the road a fruit and veg shop and a small shop selling drinks, snacks etc open til late. Will visit again

Just back from 4 days in this hotel and it was great!! Hotel is lovely and clean, everyone is so friendly and is literally 5 second walk to the beach!! La Cala del Moral is a quaint little Spanish town and is the perfect place to go if you just want to rewind and relax! We will definitely be back here.
