Wonderful girls trip away, we stayed Barceló Malaga with its roof top pool and easy access from the train station. Recommend the Turkish baths in the old town - superb. Food was top notch. Looking forward to returning some day.

Great place in Spain to spend a few days exploring matters Picasso, Antonio Banderas and tapas. Malaga really is the gateway to the Costa del Sol. Go to all the historic places in the guide book, find the out of the way tapas bars and Plaza Antonio Banderas. Picasso Museum is brilliant. Not much to the birthplace. Some late night places and an Irish bar.
