Hotel La Chancla

+34 952 206 900.

Hidden in Pedregalejo, a small fishing community in Malaga, this tiny hotel only has nine rooms but it packs a punch with its outdoor hot tub and mini sauna. Rooms are a little on the pokey side, but the views over the Alboran Sea can’t be beaten. Taxis take around 10 minutes into the city centre but a stroll along the beach is the most romantic route.
