I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of hotels and restaurants in this friendly uphill town with lots of cafes and bars with delightful streets/ plaza with tapas bars. Transport to the coast and elsewhere was very good - regular buses and railway station just 10 minutes away by bus. Good if you prefer not to be down on the... More

This pueblo is a breath of freewheeling air. So tranquil. Beautiful little back roads, delicious variety of foods and th view alongside of the church is breathtaking. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to wind down & chill. There is a lift at the bottom of the church floor level.

Visited in January 2014. Beautiful old town with wonderful views towards the sea and looking down on Benalmana and Torremolinas. Full of Spanish charm with some white washed houses and a delightful church and garden area with stunnign sea views and flowers which made January feel like Spring was about to turn to Summer.

Away from the main road there is the old town which is lovely to walk around. It's nice knowing that this is also a town where Spanish live and work. Very welcoming. There are stunning views from near the church. Also a lift to take you down to a lower level, which leads to Castillo de Colomares. We didn't have... More

Wow what a stunning place,visited the Old village following a friends recommendation. The old village can be easily reach by bus from Benalmedena Costa. We spent a good few hours wandering the streets, visiting the church and main square before having lunch in La Pala D'Oro. Would highly recommend a visit

Came back from here yesterday after a 5 day visit staying with friends. Beautiful typical Spanish village with stunning little streets & squares & churches! Everywhere was so clean (apart from dog poo in some places but it's worst in U.K.!!) people are so friendly, plenty of little bars & cafés to sit outside just watching the world go by,... More

We are very lucky to have friends with a house in the old village. We visited for an adult recharge of batteries in early Sept. The weather was beautiful and the old town is traditional Spain at its best. White washed houses narrow streets and an abundance of great places to eat or simply stop for a night cap and... More
