Málaga excursions

Marbella

The Costa del Sol resorts aren't everyone's cup of tea but posh Marbella, with its charming old town and glitzy Puerto Banús marina complex, is definitely worth a visit.

For further information, visit Marbella Town Hall Tourist Office, Glorieta de la Fontanilla s/n.

Lobo Park

To get away from the touristy coast, head north to Antequera, a beautiful and ancient town with enormous prehistoric dolmens and, a short way south, the rocky massif of El Torcal and the howling wolves at Lobo Park.

Gran Hotel Miramar

Originally opened in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII, and at one time Malaga's law courts, this beautifully-restored hotel is set by the sea in the upmarket area of Caleta. The polished rooms have all the mod-cons; some have a Moorish theme or Mediterranean touches but only 25% have sea views. Amenities include a spa, a gym, a swimming pool and several restaurantsa.

Hotel Alameda

Clean, cheap and central, this hotel occupies the 8th floor of an apartment building and has obliging owners and free Wi-Fi. What it lacks in modernity, it makes up in personality, and all rooms come with private bathrooms. The views over the bullring are nigh on unbeatable too.

Hotel Molina Lario

Opposite the Cathedral, this 4-star hotel has elegant, contemporary rooms - the best have balconies and views of the Cathedral. Amenities include an outdoor garden-terrace serving tapas, a stunning rooftop pool with late night bar and a terrace grill restaurant.

Room Mate Larios

Right on pedestrianised Calle Larios, in the heart of Málaga, this rebranded hotel, part of a chain of hotels around the world, has a light, stylish contemporary feel with spacious rooms, free Wi-Fi and an impressive roof terrace with a late night bar. Breakfast is served until a civilized midday.

Hotel Eurostars Astoria

A short walk west of the centre, near the Alameda train station, this compact hotel only has 57 rooms but is modern and offers excellent value for money. Its sparkling cleanliness helps, but do try and get a room overlooking the River Guadalmedina.

Hotel La Chancla

Hidden in Pedregalejo, a small fishing community in Malaga, this tiny hotel only has nine rooms but it packs a punch with its outdoor hot tub and mini sauna. Rooms are a little on the pokey side, but the views over the Alboran Sea can't be beaten. Taxis take around 10 minutes into the city centre but a stroll along the beach is the most romantic route.
