Would not stay here again
just stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, dinner bed and breakfast. rooms very good and cleaned daily with towel change. Food awfull, breakfast no choice, could not drink coffee and tea bags not good, glad we took a kettle. Dinner basic no vegetables, no choice. staff not very friendly, would not stay there again.
My wife and two children stayed here in dec 2005.The location is good not far from the habour and on the promanard. We stayed half board however we only had our breakfast each morning as it was very cheap to eat out and any way we dident spend much time around the hotel.I would just like to say that I would not fancy staying here in mid summer as i found the walls in each room very thin and you could hear all sorts of noise even from yhe corridors at night, thankfully in december the whole place is full of pensioners staying for up to 3 months at a time.So its an ideal spot for a relaxing off peak holiday.
Go into the city of malaga as it is a charming place and you could spend a few days exploring it.
Hotel in a great location
Not much to complain about here - the entertainment is a negative but pretty much everything else is a plus - there can be a queue to both get in to and at the Dining Room at peak hours - outside garden areas are excellent for sunbathing and just a few paces from the promenade - would we stay here again ? Yes without a hesitation - the location is excellent and the food in the dining room is very good and usually hot. For the money the hotel is excellent.

Loved the baracuda
stayed at the baracuda hotel 14 10 2005 very enjoyable the food was very good every dish was cooked very well plenty of choice. Location ace near the beach near the shops rang hotel day before to ask for room on top floor overlooking the sea thats what they gave us staff very good cant wait to return to this hotel.
Spent the month of January 2005 at La Barracuda. Ambiance was great and location is perfect. Enjoyed an all inclusive holiday, and will try to repeat this in January 2006. This hotel is in the middle of everything - can walk to almost anywhere - and if not, the buses are close. Great holiday.
It was ammmaaaazzzinnnngggg!!!!!
I went to magaluf on the 25th September 2004 it was great , everynight the entertainment staff were great,and everyday they done activities for kids and adults and they were great all my cousins loved it and so did the adults they did loads of games.The bar staff were lovely ,really kind and genuine all in all AMAZZING!!! The beach was 2 mins away and there were shops and clubs just 5 mins away. I recomment everyone goes to this hotel it is very good and you are gauranteed a brilliant time and free drink all day and night and free food!!!. It is ideal for families as when i went there were 19 of us ha ha ha and we are all goin back in 2005 for 3 weeks!!!
I visited this hotel in December 2002, I went with my sister. I was impressed. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were excellent, nothing was too much for them to do for their guests. The food was good, and as they had guests from all over the world, they catered for everyone's tastes. They are so friendly there. I spoke to a vast majority of the other guests, and many return year after year. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and are cleaned daily, there is ample storage space, the ensuite bathrooms have baths and showers. There are three lifts, which are also always clean. The views over the Med Sea are great. It is very friendly, and as one guest said to me, while you are there you feel you are part of one big happy family. The location is good. You virtually step out of the hotel onto the beach. There are plenty of sunbeds, a tennis court and pool, and poolside snack bar.
Nearby are many shops selling newspapers, souvenirs, tobbacco and sweets, there are many restaurants, cafe's and diners beside this hotel. There is also a marina close by. You can have a pleasant stroll along the seafront, and stop and one of the many cafe's to enjoy a wonderful cappuccino coffee, or other refreshment. I was so impressed with the hotel, I decided that when I go back I will only stay at this hotel, and I have even taken up a Spanish language course. I have the most wonderful memories of watching the sun rise over the sea as I ate my breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to all persons. Do give it a try, you will not be disappointed. In the evenings, there is entertainment in the bar. Top marks La Barracuda...I'll be back.
Sixth trip coming up!
I do not walk particularly well, arthritis. I enjoy my vacations at La Barracuda because there are so many things to see and do within a short walk. The hotel is average, the food is plentiful, with a good choice, but average. I always say the hotel location is the gold, but the staff are the diamonds in that gold. They have to be the most friendly hotel staff anywhere! Most of them have worked there for many years and have told me it's a good place to work and so that makes it better for you as a client. A lot of inexpensive restaurants are within a very short distance, lots of bars and cafes. My 6th visit is coming up, and I am looking forward to it with great pleasure.

... pleasant hike, trudging through the sand in the hot sun, but if I can reach Malaga this way on foot, it will be worth it. Fewer beachgoers on this stretch, as there’s no road to get here. Then I see something that makes me do a double take: an old man trudging through the sand ahead of me, butt naked. A poor old fellow with Alzeimers? I take a quick glance around… there’s another one, lying in the sand. Well, well, it looks like I have stumbled on one of Costa ...
... intended, we slept from 5 o'clock until 9 o'clock in the morning. I guess we were a little tired from the lack of sleep the night before.
We spent Sunday through Monday in the beautiful city of Toledo. Toledo was really amazing. It was everything you could picture a country side, European city would be. We visited a beautiful cathedral, the architecture alone was something to appreciate. Amilia being from a Catholic ...
After yesterday's excursion to Puerto Banus, we decided to visit a piece of Spain that is a bit more authentic - Mijas! Although the area is also capitalizing on the tourism in the area, it is a taste of the typical whitewashed town built into the side of a hill above the Mediterranean Sea. With narrow, cobblestone streets and winding, hilly passages, the best way to get a ...
It was another beautiful sunny day on the coast of Spain to explore how the "other half" lives. Puerto Banus is the marina southwest of Marbella where the international jet-set come to play. Huge yachts and exotic cars were the norm as we wandered along the marina and imagined what it would be like to sail on boats that are twice the size of our house. I'm pretty sure this area is the least representative of Spanish culture, but it sure was fun to ...
... made for British tourist families and retirees. Occasional Spanish tourist. Heavily developed coastal towns with most buildings appearing to be 80's or earlier construction. The beach sand is grey black and the water icy cold. Not as hot here as Granada.
On my first full day here Wednesday 26 June, I finally got a haircut and then spent time at the beach. No wind at all. Perfect to laze about. In between all this, Australia rewound the years by ...
