Malaga Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Malaga

Malaga, the largest city on the famously sunny Costa del Sol, offers a variety of different types of accommodation. From city centre hotels to seafront apartments, whatever you want your Malaga holiday to be, you’ll find the perfect spot to make it so.

Lots of all-inclusive resorts cater to families offering a relaxing time by the pool, and couples can enjoy a glass of wine on their own balcony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. With a choice of hostels available, backpackers and those on a cheap budget can find their own place in the sun as well.

Where to stay

El Palo

This popular beach resort is a hit with families on holiday, with ample space for adults to lounge and kids to play and have fun. With sunbeds available for those seeking a tan and parasols for those wishing to shield themselves from the rays, you can choose to relax however you want on El Palo beach. For the more active, diving and fishing are available. And, for the more leisurely holidaymakers, there’s a promenade with many bars and restaurants to unwind in and enjoy a bite to eat.

Las Acacias Pedralejo

Ideal for families, this beautiful beach has earned Blue Flag status. With tidy sands, plenty of facilities and lifeguards on hand, all that’s left to you is to relax. There’s even a children’s play area where the little ones can have fun with other kids in a safe environment. With that in mind, you can then sit back comfortably on your sun lounger or chill out under the parasol with a relaxing book.

Banos Del Carmen

Located on the Malaga City seafront, this small beach is right next to the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Promenade. Due to its location, it’s quite busy but for those who enjoy being right where it’s all happening, this is definitely the place to be. Enjoy the beachside bars and cafes as well as the historical bathing pavilion.

What to see

Malaga is a historical hub of culture and magnificent sights. The fortress of La Alcazaba from the 700s is a massively popular landmark, boasting many stunning archeological features including the Puerta del Cristo (Christ's Door). Additionally, you can see the beautiful garden with classic fountains and the Arcos de Granada. You’ll also get a great view of the city from the top.

Explore the glistening Mediterranean by taking a fabulous cruise. With many types of vessels available offering different experiences, you can enjoy a barbecue on a catamaran or a diving experience, fishing or a thrilling speedboat ride. You can be taken for dinner at a different port or take in the seabed views from a glass bottom boat. Whatever your vibe, you can stretch your sea legs in style.


Malaga is quite an elegant city with a vibrant nightlife. The Plaza de La Constitucion is a nightlife hub, with plenty of wine bars and pubs where you can start your evening with some local wine or a fabulous cocktail. Move to Calle Larios or Calle Granda for more drinks and a buzzing atmosphere. You’ll experience live music and dancing as well.

If you’re into clubbing and want to stay up all night dancing, head to Plaza de la Merced. Here, you’ll find many modern clubs serving up classic cocktails, as well as shots. Plaza de Uncibay is another hub for clubbers from around the world. Wherever you choose to head off to, you’re guaranteed a night you won’t forget.

What to eat

Malaga is renowned for its fabulous cuisine, especially the tantalising tapas. So much so, you can even take a dedicated tapas tour of the city, where you can enjoy all the yummiest jamon, tortillas and boquerones. If you prefer to explore yourself, you’ll find many wonderful tapas places hidden away in the cobbled streets.

Malaga also has a great selection of fine dining experiences, fresh fish restaurants as well as many fast food joints where you can grab some chips and a burger as well. You’re most certainly not going hungry tucking into Spanish feasts on your holiday to Malaga.


With a mix of old and new, the shopping experience in Malaga is an eclectic one. The main shopping area is Marques de Larios which features swanky marble pavements and even swankier boutiques. The Malaga Central Market is perfect for souvenir shopping with traditional fashions and homeware as well as cheaper knick-knacks to be found there. 

For a proper shopping spree, head to one of the many modern shopping malls scattered around the city that feature all the high street shops you know and love.

A wonderful place to learn Spanish

Malaga is the perfect place to practice your Spanish. It's a beautiful city with very friendly people. The best time of year to visit - so long as you are comfortable with very hot weather (up to 38C during our recent visit) - is during the August Feria when the city streets are filled with flamenco, guitars and horses. You can enjoy fireworks and a huge pop concert on opening night (with not a drunken yob in sight) followed by a whole week of festivities. You will be made to feel very welcome. But dont expect people to speak English to you. One of the very best things about Malaga is that it has not been invaded by the English, unlike many of the towns along the Costa del Sol. You dont need to be fluent - everyone will try very hard to help you to be understood - a glass of Malaga wine and a phrasebook work perfectly well.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Beautiful architecture, beautiful horses, wonderful traditions, friendly people.

Perfect- such a gorgeous city

Totally loved this city- just returned from 10 days there and wished we could've stayed longer- forever would have done! So much to do- the beach is handy, the shopping is great, the choice of food and bars unreal (try Cafe Bolsa or Austin Martini's), plenty to see- castle museums etc. Also, loved the tropical park right in the centre- gorgeous for picnic lunch, or sitting relaxing watching the world go by.Train station (only 5 euros from our hotel, MS Maestranza) made it easy to access other resorts. These were all good to see but we preferred Malaga to any of them. All the people we met, in bars and restaurants were friendly, chatty, helpful, pleasant and a delight to meet. really glad we came here- we intended to visit last year but some photos on the net made the city look like a dull concrete jungle, so we opted for Palma again. Decided this year to give Malaga a go & now gutted to leave it behind, Can't wait to go back.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The park, the shops, the restaurants/bars, the people.

A secret gem

Most people probably think that Malaga is just an airport town. How wrong they are. Its beautiful, vibrant and theres lots to see and do here. Add in the weather factor and you're looking at one of the best cities in Europe.

A family friendly, cosmopolitan city

I love it. Six visits in less than 3 years says it all. It has the best of everything - fantastic shopping, culture, restaurants, hotels for all budgets and is only a 20 minute walk to the old Malagueta Beach if you want a lazy day in the sun.

Malaga is a lovely spanish city despite being on the Costa Del Sol

Despite having my purse stolen I still love Malaga. My husband pursued the thief and locals joined in. The thief was caught and the purse recovered. There aren't many cities where that would happen! Usually people look the other way.

Malaga is certainly not Torremolinos

Dont want to talk down Torremolinos here but Malaga is "cut from a different cloth". We caught the bus from Malaga central bus station and went to Torremolinos for the day as we have never seen it. Only half an hour bus journey but worlds apart. Let me talk about Malaga though as it is a beautiful city. Malaga is a great city to visit for a "city break" holiday and has the added bonus of having good beaches to soak up the sun. Fabulous cafes and restaurants are every where in the main centre. If you are into people watching then this is a place to visit. We were sitting at a cafe in the centre and a couple walking there dog came by. Nothing unusual about that except the dog had Bob Marley hair extensions, nearly fell off my chair, brilliant stuff. Very trendy, up market city with gorgeous buildings and lots of places of interest. The city also hosts the large cruise ships at the docks and as we came off one for a five day city break, Malaga it was a welcoming site. The city itself is very "Spanish" and although the staff in most of the restaurants, etc. can speak a little English, the vast majority of places dont look to cater for the hoards of English tourists looking for a lager weekend so if your after this, its not the place for you. If you want nice restaurants offering good food and wine then this is a Spanish city that has is in abundance. Too may good points to cover in this review, however, all i'll say is, go there and experience it yourself.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Nice restaurants offering great food and very good city hotels.

Great city for history, sites of interest and tapas

We love Malaga and come here every opportunity we get when staying within easy travelling distance. There are so many places to see;the cathedral, the castle, Alcazabar,the museums, the old town and the fantastic range of tapas bars, restaurants and beach areas and all at very reasonable prices. The local transport network is terrific for getting to anywhere along the coast.

Never realised nor appreciated how much there was to see and do in Malaga. We found some great Tapas bars. Would recommend the horse and carriage tour 30 euros for 4 people was excellent value. Just a lovely place to walk round with lots of historical sites if you are into that sort of stuff.

A fantastic place to visit as a couple or as a family

We loved Malaga. It is a fantastic place to visit for a weekend break or even longer. We got a taxi from the airport as we had a night flight but got the airport express bus back to the airport which costs just 3 euros, a bargain. The city has an abundance of historical features and wandering round the 10th century Alcazaba fortess is a must. The narrow, winding streets are filled with tapas bars, wonderful restaurants and lovely boutiques. There is something for everyone, and the centre of the city is car free so child and adult friendly.
