Boutique Hotel Las Islas
10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Wedding in Paradise
"Las Islas is a romantic paradise. It's owner Omar is very generous and made our wedding and stay the most special few days of our lives. The genuine warmth of his and his attentive staff's welcome was extended to everyone in our party. The whole experience felt like a dream come true.
The food was so delicious that not only did we eat more than our fill on our wedding day and the following day's breakfast. We also stopped in for lunch on the last day of our stay in Spain for a final fix of the sumptuous Lebanese cuisine, before heading back to bland old Blighty.
The service was incredible, and personal, we had three small children in our party and they were made to feel very welcome. Extra beds were put in parents' rooms to accommodate the kids, and special meals were prepared for them.
We would recommend Las Islas as not only a top class restaurant and relaxing oasis for a stay, but also as a romantic venue for the most special Wedding Day EVER!"

Close to Paradise !
"What a beautiful place to stay. The tropical garden with the wonderful pool and sunbeds and the delicious restaurant with the finest Libanese food and the warm hospitality of Omar and his wonderful staff and cosy decorated rooms makes this small hotel the place to be if you are looking for a total relaxation experience.
You donÂ´t want to leave this place to go to the nearby beach. The beach and boulevards are ugly and not at all atractive to visit. But that doesnÂ´t matter because you donÂ´t want to leave Las Islas anyway !"

A very special holiday
"We arrived late at night to a very warm welcome and the wow moment on seeing the hotel grounds, pool, room and restaurant. We had a light supper which was remarkable followed by a restful nights sleep. The following morning we awoke to the views of the garden and sun over the blue sea, the peace and tranquility. The owners and staff make every effort to make your stay enjoyable and stress free. We are planning to return in the near future."

un rincon del cielo - a little piece of heaven
"Las Islas is a little paradise in fuengirola. Omar and his crew made made of this place a wonderful oasis of rest and peace. Owner and staff are great, the restaurant is excellent, the rooms are comfortable and have a great view.
And what's more: it seems as if no one of the staff has to do any effort to make you feel that good, it's easy-going, it's real!!!"

"My husband and I spent 4 nights at this amazing boutique style hotel.
We wanted a quick escape with a short transfer from Malaga airport, great food and service with nice surroundings. We found it at Las Islas.
Omar and his team strived to ensure that our stay was perfect.Our room was spotless with brilliant aircon and a great power shower.
The pool, set amongst lush vegetation, sparkled during the day and had such a relaxing ambiance
The food was amazing.......breakfast was a combination of juices, cheeses, eggs and breads. The lebanese restaurant menu was very unusual and was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Sitting by the poolside at a candlelit table on balmy nights was a real highlight.
Omar was so welcoming and hospitable, nothing was too much trouble and he was happy to share his local knowlege and make recommendations and suggestions to enhance our stay.
We will be returning again, it is a perfect spot to stay for just a few days or a longer 2 week holiday.With just 12 rooms, it would make a perfect venue for a special celebration and its proximity to Fuengirola makes it great place to combine some nightlife and beaches with a tranquil oasis."

Lovely place, obliging owner and staff
"We stayed here on 1st October 2009 - as usual just for one night.
We have stayed here three times after flying to Malaga late in the day and then not having much time to travel on elsewhere. Not the easiest of places to find so research is needed to get detailed information, but once found it is a little oasis.
We had booked and arrived for our third time, and were welcomed with a drink out on the terrace.
We chilled out, had an evening meal which was lovely and in a great setting, and at all times we were treated as though we really mattered.
The place was taken over two or three years ago, and the owner - Omar - has gradually updated the place. The food was great, the overall experience was great, and we will return. Omar is charm personified, and a great advert for how guests would like to be treated.
We will return ..."

You could be anywhere in the world
"Been going here for meals for years as we have a place nearby, It is the most amazing place, so relaxing and the staff are fantastic - nothing is too much trouble for them. Omar (the owner) oozes warmth and friendliness.
Laying by the pool you could be anywhere on earth but at a better price. The gardens are a delight.. The food is superb"

A Little Oasis
"Highly recommended for that special occasion or for a relaxing/romantic break in a stunning location. Most rooms have sea views and overlook a tropical garden.
Dine indoors or outdoors by the swimming pool to a wonderful choice of Mediterranean/Lebanese cusine.
You won't be disappointed!"

A great experience !
"After having a horrible experience in Hotel Oceano Beach (and after havinf health problems) we came to this hote, and we didn't regret one single minute.
The location is great, food even better en the service is unbelievable, Omar, the owner, even came to get us from the room one morning, with an ombrella, because it rained...
We kept extending our stay untill we, sad enough, hÃ¡d to leave to continue our andalucian tour....
It's an unique place!"

Lovely Quite Welcoming Hotel
"We have visited this Hotel a couple of times a year for the last 7 - 8 years and it is lovely.
You must follow the road signs to find it if not if you dont know where your going you can end up in the one way system and miss it.
Although we have never stayed in the hotel, our friends have, while we have been at a friends villa just around the corner.
We understand the rooms are small but perfectly formed.
We have always just popped into the hotel for drinks, evening meals and Sunday lunches which have always very long and lazy followed by a dip in the inviting pool.
Everyone has always been most welcoming and helpful.
This is really a tiny oasis of tropical plants and calm and is very very pleasant. May it continue for years to come!"
