Malaga Hotels and Accommodation
(Malaga, Costa del Sol, Spain)
It comes as no surprise that Malaga, the capital resort of the Costa del Sol, offers an impressive selection of hotels and places to stay. Accommodation in Malaga ranges from high-rise hotels along the seafront, to charming apartments on the western coast.
Where to Stay
Plenty of hotel packages and accommodation options are available in the Malaga area, usually offering good value for money. Some of the most popular hotels overlook the bay, and these magnificent views are the perfect way to start your holiday. Further hotels in Malaga are clustered around the Playa de Maro region close to Torrox, the El Rincón de la Victoria area, and the Benalnatura region.
Self-catering apartments are also plentiful in Malaga and usually available on a weekly or monthly basis. With coastal locations and more rural spots with mountain views, self-catering apartments in Malaga are becoming an increasingly appealing alternative to more mainstream accommodation and hotels. For budget travellers staying in Malaga, plenty of hostels (hostales) are on offer, although these can quickly become full during Easter and August, when a number of major festivals and parades take place, attracting large crowds. Many of the cheapest hotels in Malaga can be found around the Calle Marques de Larios, the Plaza de la Constitucion, and close to the Alameda Principal area.
Bungalows, villas and more rural accommodation (casas rurales) are also available for rental throughout the resort of Malaga, with some of the best value for money on offer in the Pueblo Andaluz area. The price is always a good indication of the location and facilities available when renting apartments and other accommodation in Malaga.
Although Malaga does not actually offer any five-star hotels at present, there are a number of luxury hotels and four-star accommodation options available, often featuring central locations, notable restaurants and private swimming pools. Hotels become cheaper as you approach the outskirts of Malaga and plenty of hotels are located around Estepona, Fuengirola, Marbella, Ronda, Torremolinos and the Parque Natural de los Montes, all of which are within easy reach of central Malaga.
For those looking for the cheapest accommodation, camping is available along Malaga's Pedregalejo Beach and in the Benalnatura area, where good family facilities are available.
