Stayed here for one night. We were first given the apartment which was a little further up the hill. We asked to be moved & with no problem we got a large room with a mini fridge. There is a sun terrace on the roof with fab views. Our host was helpful, friendly & funny. We would stay here again.

Yes Mari-Carmen is quirky but we thought she was a star, so welcoming, the whole house was spotlessly clean, we were given a choice of rooms, she showed us where everything was, including the roof terrace, and dining room for breakfast, then she left us to it. Our room looked over the main street, with Juliet balcony, it had aircon,... More

Wonderful terrace with view over mountains and the sea, warm welcome with free beer and tapas. Exactly what we needed after a long and exhausting travel day. The landlord is indeed outgoing, but in a very friendly and warm way. I don't agree with some statements made here that she is greedy. I booked 3 nights through booking and had... More

This guest house is mentioned in "The Rough Guide to Spain" (which providing it is positive is always a good indication) and it certainly lived up to its write up. Spotless clean and sooooo friendly I almost believed I knew the family. Even received a beer and coke plus a snack all for free on arrival, we were then given... More

This is a good value pension in a central location. Our room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and a nice balcony that had good views over the town to the mountains. There is a also a great roof terrace. The landlady is welcoming but a bit of character - personally I found this good fun and quite... More

Superb location, extremely clean and friendly. Very good price. Excellent quality orthopaedic beds. Will definitely return...and Salobrena is a lovely place to spend a few relaxing days. There is a safe in most rooms and the owner could not be more helpful

The boardinghouse is o.k., but the owner-lady not: excentric, moodie, obtrusive. As long you do, what she wants, everything seems fine, otherwise it will cost yours nerves. At all - little privacy, the lady is permanent near. She never respects your desire, even until ignorance of allergy inconveniences which can't go with the extensive use of crappy cleaners. More over,... More
