Not really a castle, although the remains are there in the grounds and gardens. The house was expensively built in the 30's, and is quite the top place in the area. Rooms are suiting the cost of staying, which is a tad up on the norm, but do one night, and can substantiate. Easy to get to as not right...

We picked this hotel based on its reviews on TripAdvisor, but had mixed feeling after staying there for 3 days. On the plus side, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The hotel is also set on a hill high above Malaga, and the views are inspirational. The patios were...

I got married here at the end of May 2016 and it was the best day ever! We are from London and we wanted to get married in the sun, by the sea but in a city, where our guests could feel free to do what they wanted during their stay and where everything is affordable. We researched cities like...

We stayed for one night in between a Marbella apartment and flying home. The setting and building are beautiful with pleasingly decorated traditional rooms. We were greeted with warmth, excellent service and the staff couldn't have been more helpful with our awkward early check-out. Both the room and the other areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean, and our bathroom...

Visited the castle in early September this year. We had already been in spain for a few weeks but decided to spend the final nights here and were not disappointed. It is amazing value for money, and the views are absolutely incredible. They serve a lovely breakfast which is continental but you can request any cooked bacon sausage and eggs...

I recently stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. The venue is stunning, high above the city of Malaga with beautiful views across the city and harbour. The wedding went flawlessly, the food was excellent and eating al fresco in late summer with a stunning backdrop was wonderful. The rooms are beautiful, some with huge balconies and superb views....

Stayed for one night as it was very close to Malaga airport for flying home the next day. I loved it! Very magical & beautiful. We had room five which was in the castle turret but had a large patio outside. The people are amazing & made us feel really welcome! The castle has many rooms & would be ideal...

A perfect day, that ended sadly with the fact that someone in the hotel has been stealing from us. Money, perfume, cards, my veil dissapeared. What is so dissapointing is that the hotel does not care. They simply told us to contact their solicitor, who is not answering us. Such a shame as it has left a bitter taste. There...
