All our accommodation options are close to Almuñécar’s historic old town and have been consistent favourites with our clients since 2005:
Hotel Arrayanes Playa ***
Arrayanes Playa is a smaller family run 3 star hotel with pool and terrace overlooking the bay. It is actually situated right on the sea front paseo overlooking the bay. The old town is just 15 – 20 min level walk along the promenade or beach either along the promenade or beach.
The hotel is family run and has a friendly 24 hour reception. On the second floor there is a communal swimming pool and sun terrace, with lovely views along the coast to the Peñon and the Castillo de San Miguel adjacent to the Moorish old town. In the evenings the sea front location is ideal for drinks on the terrace, or for just chilling out in the warm evenings watching the fishing boats working under the stars.
There is a separate bar with sunny terrace overlooking the sea, as well as a summer outdoor barbecue area with olive wood fired pizza oven. The restaurant offers a good selection of Mediterranean dishes with international touches. They specialise in paellas and other local rice dishes as well as fresh fish. In summer there are occasional themed BBQ nights, hand made traditional pizzas, as well as events like the annual autumn “Octoberfest” beer festival.
33 rooms – singles, twins & triples. Air conditioning is standard in all the rooms, as well as satellite TV, phones and fully fitted on suite bathrooms with hairdryers. All the rooms we use face south and have super sea views. They all have balconies directly overlooking the bay, which is just over the sea front in front of the hotel. A laundry & ironing service is available.
Hotel Arrayanes Playa is available on a B&B or HB basis. Our standard board is on a Bed & Breakfast basis, as most clients like to sample the tapas and eat out in the old town or enjoy the beach bars and restaurants. Half & Full board options are available for a small supplement.
