We used this transportation in Malaga, we used the regional one several times to different destinations, no problem getting your tickets either at a booth station or machine. There was always someone to help us out .the trains are clean, reasonably priced and very punctual.

Traveling from Algeciras to Madrid, the restaurant in Algeciras station has been closed for some time so we thought we could have breakfast on the train but there is no food, drink not even a bottle of water for the 5hr 4in journey. Very poor!
