Outstanding place for staying in Malaga without no doubts. It is placed in first line to the see, the rooms' balconies face the beach, so it's restaurant with delicious Spanish food. It's close to the city center, the staff is very nice, I felt like home and you have everything you need there. 10/10!

This is a nice hostel located near the beach of Malaga 20 min away from the city centre. The staff was really giving me a warm welcome. The owner Thierry is very nice and relaxed. Close walk to the beach, great view.

The best part was the restaurant by which you like a special person living in a royal resort because of the sea side view while having lunch or dinner. All is excellent there with nice...

Awesome gesture of the owners to change it for us. We talked for a while with Thierry, very friendly,...

I stayed at bellavista for two weeks and was devastated to leave! The staff were very courteous and tentative. I felt like part of a family while I was there! I made great friends with the number of interesting people that came and went, and I'm really going to miss being so close to the beach. I ate the food...
