First time we ate we just had wine and tapas and it was delicious. Next night we ate in the main restaurant and the good was just ok. It is a really good place for a drink and tapas but does have a vast menu so maybe we both just picked badly that night.

Stayed here a few times when visiting my Dad, I like it, fairly basic but clean & friendly. The Bar Restaurant does great food, beach across the way & a Pool. Not a place I'd spend my annual 2 weeks, but to be honest for a family on a budget & getting back to "real Spain" it ticks the boxes....

I had read other reviews and thought this would be a good choice, however, the beach was crowded and the town not very appealing at all. The room was ok for the price but no hot water for the shower in the morning and when I went to report this there was nobody on reception who spoke English and they...

I stumbled onto Hostel Esperanza, Benajarafe on booking.com. It looked perfect. Across the road from the beach, with a nice looking pool, and a bargain at €66 a night for a family room!

We did not stay at the hotel, but spent most evenings eating here. The food is really good, spanish food. Really reasonably priced. Well worth a visit. The restaurant and bar are frequented by really friendly locals. The hotel is situated on the sea front.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a night en route to Granada from Seville. The hotel was very nice, but difficult to find. The people who run the place do not speak very good English, which made arrangements a mite difficult, but nothing was insurmountable. We had no issues with noise, unlike some of the other reviewers. The room...

We live in Benajarafe 4/5 months of the summer every year & Esperanza situated on the sea front, is the best value throughout the whole of the Costa del Sol. It is simple, Spanish & the food & beverages are the cheapest in the area - hence the Spanish use it throughout the year. A 3 course plentiful meal with...

Friendly people, nice swimming pool, rooms are okay but noisy. The hostal is on the coastal road. So day and night there is traffic passing by. There is also a restaurant with nice terrace. Simple spanish food. Lots of locals are having there wine and beers. We ordered as a dessert a Baileys. Small of big?the waitress asked. Big, we...
