Stopped for one night's stay here on our cycling tour. First task is to get booked in. There's no hotel reception so you go to the bar - which was busy when we arrived with plenty of staff but all tied up. When you do manage to get someone, they are pleasant. Key cards didn't work - well, you had... More

Pleasant hotel just of the main road, but down the hill a bit so quiet, with great views across the valley to Alcaucin. Colourful and artistic. Good food. Note to cyclists: read the directions carefully. It's just off the main road, not up the hill in Alcaucin. We found out the hard way.

Although I did not actually stay at this hotel during this visit to Colmenar, I did get a look around, and eat there. You can chose to eat inside (a bit on the dark side) or outside. I chose the latter. The service was quick and friendly, the food was tasty and good value. The rooms were a good size... More

This is a newish hotel on the outskirts of Colmenar facing the Natural Park. Its built in a traditional style and has a cosy bar and a traditional Spanish restaurant and menu. Local dishes like kid goat are cooked on a traditional wood oven and are pretty generous for a very reasonable price. A standard 3 course lunch was less... More

This hotel is in Colmenar around 40km inland from Malaga. Very friendly staff, very helpful, some English spoken. Dinner in the evening was good, with good local wine. the room was fairly simple but clean and airy. They stored all our mountain bikes in the secure store below the hotel.
