We’ve only just returned home from staying in the Almijara Residence in Competa and I was really keen to write this review as there is so much to say about this wonderful B and B. Firstly, Paul and Maurice are fantastic hosts and so helpful, friendly and informative. They really took time to make us feel comfortable in their lovely residence. We were given plenty of information about local restaurants and places to visit. Also, at this uncertain time they are very COVID aware. Lots of hand sanitiser, masks worn at all times, social distancing and the entire place is immaculately clean. I mean like a new pin ! Ok. Let’s get to it...the room. Totally ace! Clean, fresh, great view of the plaza and church tower, great shower with no loss of hot water or pressure. The bed!! Wow! I have to say the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in; and I have travelled a lot with work and with family. Seriously, it was so good. The bedding is top quality. Next...Wifi. Brilliant, quick. Never lost signal throughout the property. Roof terrace and honesty bar. Totally fantastic. Great choice, clean, wonderful views of Competa and the plaza. We actually chose to stay on the rooftop terrace rather than going to a Bar, it was so good. You could soak up the great atmosphere but have cheaper drinks and never have to wait to get served ! Loved it. Breakfast....wow, wow and wow!! So tasty!! Beautifully presented, Maurice is so professional in his presentation and Paul was very attentive. Great coffee, food very tasty and again a wonderful view from the terrace. A lovely start to the day. Background music during breakfast and plenty of room for other guests. Really really great. Check out was very efficient and it was lovely to chat to the guys. They recommended a visit to the nearby Canillas village and when we said we were driving towards the coast they suggested a lovely beach restaurant that was superb. Thanks guys and we will definitely be back soon. We had a great time and a wonderful stay. A fantastic B and B that is a gem. Great hosts, superb location, super comfy bed, best breakfast in town and a wonderful rooftop bar and terrace. A perfect stay. Thanks again Maurice and Paul.

I had a good feeling about Paul and Maurice's place when I saw a post about it on a FB page for South Africans in France and knew I wanted to go there to celebrate my birthday with my sister. I was so right - what a great choice! Our hosts couldn't have done more to make us feel at home and ensure we enjoyed our stay - from fetching us at the bus station to presenting us with buttermilk rusks at breakfast! And talking about breakfast - oh, my word - sublime! Stylishly presented and absolutely delicious and different every day! In addition to all this - lovely decor, many special touches and being thoroughly spoilt on my birthday, with bunting, a card and champagne! I was really touched. The residence is also in a great location in the charming village of Competa. A return visit is definitely on the cards!

This is certainly the best base in the centre of Competa (and I mean centre!). Stylish and comfortable with the hosts, Paul and Maurice offering such a warm welcome accompanied by truly amazing breakfasts which are worthy of any five star hotel. You really won't want to go home. Highly recommended and a wonderful base to explore this beautiful region.
