    Very good

    Our room had a stunning view which took away the effects of the rather shabby furnishings Food was adequate-but breakfast was chaotic-despite staffs efforts! Perhaps you should consider some sort of divider in the dining room when huge numbers arrive together The hotel-of course-was not responsible for the macabre happenings on the beach S M Corfield

    Exceptional

    Perfect location. Carihuela Beach is an amazing place, so near to the lovely marina. Hotel has a lovely garden, perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by. Room was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. Food was plentiful and varied. Staff very helpful and courteous. We travelled by car and parking may be difficult particularly at weekends. We would certainly recommend La Barracuda for a seaside holiday.

    Very good

    Charging 2 euros for use of fridge in room to keep water or sodas cold , is scandalous, I have stayed some times ,3 times a year we will not be staying there again. You can check my history with hotel, and I would like to hear of you , what they have to say@@@@

    Fabulous

    Excellent location on main promenade between Torremolinos & Benalmadena.

    Some areas in need of updating but good value for money overall.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    Everything is very nice & good value.Bedrooms & Dining room suit us fine.

    This hotel do not cater on the bedroom TV for English speaking people. There are plenty of them that use the hotel. We are starved of news in English. I think the hotel needs to sort this out or risk losing business to adjacent hotels who do better in this respect.I will not recommend this hotel to English speakers until they improve, All hotels now have Sky News, why not this one

    Superb

    Enjoyable one night stay. Food good & outside bar.

    Very poor TV coverage for British people. Only Euro Sport in English! Please ask the hotel to do better in this respect.

    The view from our balcony.it was near the beach.

    The cigaret smell in the corridors.The general aspect of the hotel.Dirty carpets,pain chipping from the walls mold on the baseboards,air conditionnig leaking and full of dust.terrible breakfast.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The location of the hotel. No traffic noise (at the south side of the hotel). Nice, sunny balcony (again at the south side of the hotel).

    Loud music and entertainment from the pool bar keep you awake until after midnight. At the south side of the hotel you cannot escape from the noise by closing the balcony door

    Good

    General overhaul of bedroom,More comfortable beds, Replace furniture, safe in room,hair dryer & better selection of toiletries in my opinion would bring hotel up to more 2010 standards.

    Oldfashioned Bedrooms

    Superb

    It was basic clean hotel for the price we paid , would book to go back again for the same kind of break, after I had booked the hotel then read the comments I was a bit scared of what we were going to as alot of them were negative but when we got there it was fine I think people want 5star hotels for the price of 2 and 3 star but I would defintly recommend it and I can b hard to please ill def b back again to it. The staff were helpful and friendly food was ok and u couldnt have asked for a better location

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The location is fantastic for beach activites being 100 mts from the sand, beach walks can be taken on the level/wide promanade stretching for miles. Access to bars and shopping is all on hand. All in all a great location

    While the Breakfast is in the booking price described as complemantry the daily food available does not change apart from fried eggs or scrambeled. the overall breakfast may not appeal to everyone

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Position by beach Bath with shower in room Most rooms have sea view with terrace

    No tea or coffee making facilities in room. Difficult to find on dark, wet night. Fruit juice / tea / coffee not very nice out of machine for breakfast.
