When I come to Malaga in the summer we always come to El Chancla, hire one of the Balinese beds, and spend the day at the beach. They do amazing ham, egg and chips here (I'm sure they call it something far more sophisticated). My kids also love the club sandwiches.

Love La Chancla. We have stayed in the summer and winter. Refurbished hotel lovely. Disappointed that we had no extras in the room. On previous visits we had a little pack in bathroom with extras that you will need on holiday. Bring them back please. For the lightweight traveller it is necessary .

I'm a regular visitor here (3-4 visits here a year for 2-7 days each time). La Chancla is a great, all season destination but I particularly love the beds in summer. However, this is also a source of my gripe - they have stopped reserving beds in advance (despite reserve signs saying otherwise). They also treat me like a stranger... More

This small hotel is quirky and on the beach. The room we had was somewhat small (Mayo) and in need of upgrading, but great view of sea. There are plenty of restaurants along the front but this made it noisy until 2am most nights which wasn't a big issue but could be if you like peace. The breakfast options were... More

The place looks really nice, in front of the beach and with a hip decoration. The food looks good on the menu but it is definitely nothing worth waiting for... And that was the issue. We had to wait over 1h to get 5 dishes, even though we were the first one sitting down. The waiters were nice but the... More

We feel very sorry to hear that. We apologize. Our waiters are always attentive to customers, but each table must wait their turn and in summer we are very busy. Thank you very much for your comment More

Great location - overlooking the beach, very chilled and relaxed. You can sit and have a drink or choose from the menu which is pretty much a bar menu - good choice of modern food - salads, burgers, fish, steaks - not your typically Spanish food (there are plenty of traditional Chiringuitos along the promenade if that takes your fancy)....
