Visited the castle in early September this year. We had already been in spain for a few weeks but decided to spend the final nights here and were not disappointed. It is amazing value for money, and the views are absolutely incredible. They serve a lovely breakfast which is continental but you can request any cooked bacon sausage and eggs... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. The venue is stunning, high above the city of Malaga with beautiful views across the city and harbour. The wedding went flawlessly, the food was excellent and eating al fresco in late summer with a stunning backdrop was wonderful. The rooms are beautiful, some with huge balconies and superb views....

A perfect day, that ended sadly with the fact that someone in the hotel has been stealing from us. Money, perfume, cards, my veil dissapeared. What is so dissapointing is that the hotel does not care. They simply told us to contact their solicitor, who is not answering us. Such a shame as it has left a bitter taste. There... More

our daughter got married in Hotel Castillo de Santa Catalina. The venue was beautiful and the food fantastic. The rest of the organisation was not satisfactory. The staff were running late putting up the lights, our guest were arriving and they still had not finished. They forgot to bring the cake out, and had to be reminded twice. The main... More

The reception was very grand and initial impressions were good, the staff were very heplful and curteous.However there were vintage cars, castle turrets, water features, large sculptures and very strange themes throughout the grounds. Our bedroom was a... More
