Set on the pebble and sandy shores of San Cristobal in Almuñécar, Hotel Helios Costa Tropical is an idyllic setting for a relaxed break. It's three-star, but its dedication to service makes this gem a favourite among Saga travellers. Lounge by the heated outdoor pool or surrender to the spa's rejuvenating Jacuzzi featuring sea views. Whether you crave a mid-morning coffee or live music in the evening, the hotel's bar has you covered. Head to the roof terrace, too, for impressive sunset views. Or step outside and take a walk along the seafront promenade and find yourself a quaint cafe to people watch.

Local Area

Almuñécar is a picturesque town with jagged coastlines, intoxicating culture and world-class food and drink. Take a stroll to the town centre, where markets await, brimming with spices, olives, dried fruits, and locally made honey and molasses. If you're looking for photo-worthy views of the Mediterranean, head to Nerja and take in the stunning scenery from the clifftop known as the 'Balcony of Europe'.

Included excursions

The Almuñécar area


The name Alpujarra is thought to be derived from 'alba sierra' meaning white mountain. With spectacular snow-covered mountain peaks, the Alpujarra is one of the most beautiful regions of Spain. Your walk will centre on the spa town of Lanjarón and includes a gradual, lengthy ascent to reveal breathtaking views of the mountains. There will be an opportunity to view the spectacular valley at Lanjarón from the recently renovated Moorish castle walls.
