    Centrally located with great rooftop restaurant

    The hotel is centrally located and being a Marriott hotel fan, this hotel provided all the services that one would expect. The hotel does not have its own garage but we were able to reserve a space through the hotel in a near by public garage. The rooms were spacious and clean.

    Security make you unwelcome.

    I wanted to take our friends to the roof top bar on top of the AC Marriott Malaga which I visited several years ago. Tried to visit the roof bar on three occasions but were turned away by security due to 1 not being open. 2 carrying a small rucksack. 3 bar is full. Obviously AC Marriott don't welcome 50 something adults in thier establishment willing to spend money with them.

    Rooftop bar and restaurant experience overlooking Malaga

    A calm and relaxed rooftop bar and restaurant in central Malaga, overlooking the port and city. Booking is recommended as bookings go quickly. Staff downstairs on reception were most friendly and helpful when we booked in the day. English and Spanish speaking. A friends and I arrived for our reservation and was greeted with welcoming, friendly staff and had a table overlooking the port. It wasn’t too breezy as they had the wind breaker down by the pool area, which I was glad of. If you’re a cold person, take a cardigan obviously. Even though the sun sets the pool end we felt we had a nicer view of the city where we were sat. Around the corner was the smoking area and there were beautiful views of the cathedral and Alcazaba. Food was delicious and reasonably priced, see images below. A cute box of what looked like the cathedral was presented with the bill at the end which contained complimentary chocolates for us both. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a nice romantic or just relaxed sunset meal overlooking the city.

    Super experience

    I visited the restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the service outstanding, the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We had 2 people with allergies and Ana and Altea were acknowledgeable about the ingredients in the dishes. Their recommendations were perfect, I will definitely come back.
