our daughter got married in Hotel Castillo de Santa Catalina. The venue was beautiful and the food fantastic. The rest of the organisation was not satisfactory. The staff were running late putting up the lights, our guest were arriving and they still had not finished. They forgot to bring the cake out, and had to be reminded twice. The main...

On behalf of Tom, our guests and our parents, we wanted to say A HUGE THANKYOU to all the staff at Castillo de Santa Catalina/ El Panto Catering for hosting our wedding! Coming from London and visiting the venue only twice before the day, it is difficult to get a full vision of how it will work/look on the night....

Booked this hotel for one night. It was situated in the middle of an Industrial state and looked completely out of place. The reception was very grand and initial impressions were good, the staff were very heplful and curteous.However there were vintage cars, castle turrets, water features, large sculptures and very strange themes throughout the grounds. Our bedroom was a...

My wife and I with two friends stayed for two nights. The room we had was once used by Charles de Gaule, it was very comfortable with great views over looking the mountains. The staff were very helpful and the restaurant served a variety of good food, this the gardens and the pool all made it a memorable trip.

The common areas of the building and the views are amazing. We were in room 4, which was a bit dated, but was very large and was comfortable. We had doors opening out onto a large shared terrace, which looked out over the ocean. This was perfect for an evening drink! The hotel gardens are beautiful, but they could do...

We booked a one night stay which we regret as it warrants a much longer visit. The place is a magnificent morrish style building on a small hill with great views and only a short walk to the beach and bus to downtown. Staff are lovely and really helpful.

We were more than surprised at the value for money provided by this hotel given its location, beautiful structure both external and internal and lovely staff. We still wonder if they under charged us as we landed on the opening day of the annual Malaga Fiesta where most properties are booked out months in advance yet only paid 130 euro...

Wow what a delightful hotel, we had 3 nights bed and breakfast and enjoyed every minute. The hotel has kept a lot of its old charm and has amazing views of the sea and port. The staff were extremely helpful, the breakfast was lovely with a variety to choose from. The hotel is a good 10-15 min walk to the...
