The facilities are less than a 1 hour drive from Malaga airport. The region, with popular places such as Torremolinos and Marbella, is quite densely populated. However, the area around the padel park is relatively quiet. This is apart from the busy coastal road, which you can safely cross via a footbridge. The padel park is located in a green area at a very short distance from a wide sandy beach. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel there are several shops for groceries, such as a large Mercadona and a Lidl.
There are also excellent restaurants within walking distance, such as
- Jaypur (Delicious Indian Curries):
- El Legado (authentic Spanish cuisine, but also curries):
- El carnicero (good meat dishes):
- Pizzeria Don Giovanni (mainly pizza):
- Bodeguita Santa Maria (including tapas)
If you want to go on a touristic trip in between padel activities, you will find a number of tips below in less than an hour’s travel time (by rental car or taxi, both bookable via the hotel reception).
Tips for tourism
Istan (about 45 minutes by rental car): a so-called Pueblo blanco located in the mountains. Here you can make beautiful walks, for example along the irrigation canals, which allow for the cultivation of avocados, bananas and other exotic crops in the area.
If you decide to rent a car at the airport itself, you can use MalagaCar . We have good experiences with MalagaCar. This rental company does not have an office in the Terminal, but you take a shuttle (2 minutes) to the rental company, which is located on the airport grounds. This rental company is very affordable and does not try to charge you further through extra, unnecessary insurance, or by claiming damage afterwards. The hotel works with a rental company in San Pedro de Alcantara. The car is delivered to the door of the hotel and it will be picked up again afterwards.
