All-inclusive hotels on the Costa del Sol for total relaxation in the sun

Check out these all-inclusive hotels on the Costa del Sol, from Malaga to Marbella, and let yourself be seduced by the charm of the south of Spain.

Picasso was born in Malaga. I imagine him as a child drawing the pigeons of the Plaza de la Merced. I do not think he would have ventured a guess that Malaga would become the City of Museums and that its offering of sun and beach would be complemented by a cultural commitment of enormous dimensions.

The capital of the Costa del Sol awaits you with its sunshine, beaches, art and wide range of bars and restaurants where you can practice the art of tapas. This is not to say that there aren’t fantastic spots along the coast. So much so, we bring you the best all-inclusive hotels along the Costa del Sol, from Malaga down to Marbella, that will allow you to disregard your daily routine, relax in style and get the most out of this wonderful city.

An all-inclusive hotel in Malaga steeped in history

The Gran Hotel Miramar is a piece of Malaga’s history in and of itself. It has been standing since 1926 when Alfonso XIII inaugurated it under the name Prince of Asturias Hotel. It has been many things: a field hospital during the Civil War, again an accommodation from 1939, the Palace of Justice since the late ’80s and, but today it stands as a lavish hotel.

Here, you will have an enviable location on the beachfront, right in the area of ​​La Caleta and on the Paseo Marítimo. The Miramar is the only hotel in the capital that offers an all-inclusive option, although on request, so remember to notify staff in advance.

You won’t have to look far from gastronomical delights with the hotel boasting three restaurants and two bars with sea views. The Prince of Asturias restaurant is as elegant as one of the wagons of the old Orient Express. The Botanical restaurant is a pool bar, surrounded by gardens facing the Mediterranean—perfect for a drink at sunset.

The lavishness and care of even the smallest detail confirm that the Miramar is much more than a luxury hotel. From the ‘Premier’ to the ‘Royal Suite’, all rooms are an experience. Whether you prefer Arabic , Mediterranean, Nasrid, classical or a modernist design, immerse yourself in a relaxed and sumptuous environment in which you can truly feel calm.

What's nearby?

Pier One and Centre Pompidou are a few minutes walk. Also, the historical centre of the city—the Alcazaba, the Roman Theater, the Picasso Museum and the Carmen Thyssen.

Visit the cathedral, which the people of Malaga call ‘La Manquita’ because it lacks a tower. Even so, it is the highest in Andalusia and its interior is breathtakingly preserved, such as the sculptural ensemble of the choir stalls made by Pedro de Mena.

An all-inclusive hotel in Torremolinos that is only steps away from the beach

For an all-inclusive-family stay to remember head to Torremolinos, which is less than 15 minutes from the capital of Malaga. In addition, you will be 50 metres from the beach. What more could you ask for?

The ClubHotel Riu Costa del Sol is an amazing family-orientated complex offering a selection of pools, themed restaurants and even an entertainment team that will keep the whole family occupied and will take care of the children, if necessary.

The rooms are modern and practical with windows or terraces facing the sea or the pools. The blues, greys and browns combine perfectly to achieve a cozy and very modern atmosphere. There’s a feeling of freshness in the bathrooms with a double sink and large mirrors. But what I like most is the shower—huge and comfortable the perfect place to get energised for the day.

Few hotels with the region boast such an impressive selection of restaurants and bars. Here, you can enjoy nine different spaces to taste from international cuisine to typical Andalusian dishes, through to Asian delicacies and Italian food. Do not miss the opportunity to sit at the table of Ajoblanco, La Dolce Vita or the Andalusian María Sardina—they are my favourite restaurants in Torremolinos!

What's nearby?

Torremolinos is one of the most famous towns on the Costa del Sol. You have to take advantage to enjoy everything that their terraces and beach bars have to offer. Here tapas, sardines and fried fish are an art. It is said to be the best place in the world for fried fish.

If you’re a fan of water sports, you’re in luck! Sailing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, paddle surfing and everything you can think of is on offer here on the calm waters of its wonderful beaches.

This is perhaps the most exclusive hotel on the Costa del Sol. The Healthouse Las Dunas belongs to a complex dedicated to wellness and health. Although it proposes services for children, its approach is clearly inclined towards enjoyment for adults.

If you want to spend a few days pampering your body and your mind with a selection of healthy treatments, this hotel does not disappoint. In fact, it is the only five-star Grand Luxury health and wellness accommodation in southern Spain.

The accommodation boasts 55 luxury suites and has all the incentives to make it a unique hotel experience, with programs for weight loss, detox treatments and anti-stress cures. In addition, of course, it’s Health & Spa Centre, with 3000 m2 dedicated to health under the continuous care of a specialized medical team.

Rarely can you find a hotel decorated with such virtuosity in an avant-garde environment: canopy beds, stylish furniture, refined curtains and stylish lamps. Everything has been prepared for you to enjoy a taste of comfortable glamour.

Delight yourself with the hotel’s cuisine offering by taking a seat at the Felix Bistro, where a menu of international and Japanese cuisine awaits you to pair with excellent wines. You can also visit the Las Dunas restaurant, which continues to maintain the high-quality standards imposed by chef Andoni Luis Anduriz, with two Michelin stars. What to expect? Healthy cooking without additives and with local products.

What's nearby?

The hotel is located in Estepona, 45-minutes from Marbella and one hour from the centre of Malaga. You can plan a getaway for shopping in Puerto Banus or visit the Malaga Museum of St. Petersburg, with paintings by Kandinsky.

Your home-away-from-home is a garden of lush gardens and open spaces located a few metres from the beach. From here, you can admire the view of three countries and two continents, thanks to the views over the Costa del Sol, the Rock of Gibraltar and the African coasts.
