Set just metres from the beach, the Hotel Florida has a setting that’s hard to beat. Fuengirola’s bars and restaurants roll out from its doorstep, too.
It’s the location that scores top marks at the Hotel Florida. You’ll find it right in the heart of Fuengirola, overlooking the harbour. And the beach is a short hop from the doorstep.
Willy Wonka-style glass elevators offer up first-class views across Fuengirola. For more in the way of panoramas, opt for a room with a partial sea-view balcony.

Does most things well
Some of the reviews on here had me worried but since they averaged out better than other hotels in the area we decided to go ahead with the booking. A lot depends on expectations. Normally I would expect a lot of a four-star 'Platinum' (Thomsons) hotel but those expectations were tempered by other reviews. We needn't have worried. Everything was fine although I would have to say I'd rate good 4* hotels in Benidorm better than this. The hotel is in a good location, is quiet at night and the staff are hard-working and friendly. Any minor issues would amount to nitpicking. The food was pretty much on a par with what you would hope for and I'm always delighted when hotels use proper linen tablecloths and napkins in the restaurant, in this case even at breakfast. It's a 10-minute stroll to the bus and train stations (near each other) with easy access to Malaga (by train) or Mijas (bus).More
Nice Hotel, Great Location.
We had been saying for a long time that we should try Fuengirola because the area is flat but deciding on a Hotel was more difficult. Why I don’t know because once we arrived at our destination, the Hotel Florida, we instantly knew that it was a good choice. Everything about the hotel was great, room lovely and comfortable, free Safe & Fridge, and a balcony with fantastic views. The restaurant was nice, a good selection on the menu everyday and a very helpful chef only too willing to help and advice about ingredients used. All staff members are helpful & friendly, entertainment each evening with activities during the day if you wanted it. The hotel is situated in a great location near to the Marina with plenty of Bars, Restaurants & shops nearby. Highly recommended and one that we would definitely visit again in the near future.More
Very Good Hotel and location
We stayed here for a week in July 2017 and found this to be a very good hotel. The hotel is modern, clean, spacious, well-equipped and very well located. The range and quality of the food is excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Situated near the centre of town, the hotel is only 2 minutes walk from the beach, cafes and bars and ten minutes from the bus and railway station. There is some form of entertainment each evening, although whether this is good or not is really down to personal preference. A minor 'moans' is that the pool is very small for the size of the hotel - 10 people and it is crowded - hence no ball games. I would certainly recommend this hotel.More
Amazing family holiday
Where do I start....A week prior to our arrival I contacted the hotel to request chocolates, wine and a fruit basket in my parents room as a surprise. This was handled extremely efficiently by Monica and Marissa and they provided a wonderful service for us. On arrival we were greeted warmly, and again efficiently with our bags being whisked off to our rooms. We had 4 rooms booked in total, all being on the 12th floor, 2 sea views over looking the harbour and beach and 2 limited sea views which had spectacular views of the harbour and carousel. The rooms were kept very clean throughout our stay by the hardworking house keepers. Each room was equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge and safe. The showers are perfect with really good pressure. On our first night in the restaurant we were shown round by the host who explained where everything was, we then met Patrick the chef, and I have to say he is an absolute credit to this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for him, his passion for his cooking really shines through and he just wants to make everyone happy in the restaurant. Well done Patrick, you are incredible and your food is beautiful. There was an abundance of choice every night for all age ranges and tastes. Breakfast is fantastic, full range of cereals, fruits, meats, porridge, yogurt and of course the good old English breakfast. All the restaurant staff worked so hard to make each meal a pleasing experience, and in my opinion they exceeded our expectations. The pool bar is welcoming and relaxing and Sofia and Amalia looked after us all week with a smile and fantastic customer service. Again, nothing was too much trouble and the bar and pool area were kept immaculate. Whilst I notice some people comment on the pool being small, I think it was more than adequate when the sea is across the road. We never had an issue finding a table and chairs or sun loungers and the children were able to play happily in the pool. The evening entertainment was good, there was a singer called Laura, who was fantastic and the flamenco dancers were phenomenal, so much energy and really got the crowd going. Antonio who serves behind the bar has a really good personality and makes the guests feel special, as well as Laura who again looked after us and worked so hard. We had a Spa treatment with was so relaxing, well worth the €40 for 1 hour and very accommodating fitting us in last minute. The location of this hotel is amazing and could not be faulted in any way. My father is disabled and we didn't struggle once, either in the hotel or out and about. We had a mobility scooter which we were able to charge each night in reception. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and in mine this hotel is far superior to most on the costa del sol. Each of the 4 stars it has earned is well deserved and I look forward to visiting again. Well done Hotel Florida SpaMore
