El Oceano boasts one of the finest beachfront restaurants on the Costa del Sol, where lunch and dinner is served every day, either on The Veranda or the Waterfront Terrace.  While hotel guests always receive preferential seating, our restaurant is very popular with non-residents, so we always advise booking your table wither here online, or (perhaps easier) with our Reception Team.

The restaurant features live music most evenings, plus many other events throughout the season.  We do recommend you enjoy our Sunday Experience during your stay!

  • Breakfast is served from 8.30am to 11am.
  • Lunch is served from 1pm until 4pm.
  • Dinner is served between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.

El Oceano on Mijas Costa

El Oceano is, more or less, halfway between Fuengirola and Marbella, 10 minutes by car to Fuengirola, 15 minutes to Marbella.  There is a regular and reliable bus service running between the two.  The village of La Cala de Mijas is an approximate 30 minute gentle walk along the Boardwalk, in the direction of Fuengirola.

You’ll find plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and more in La Cala, it’s a nice little town.  There’s also a twice-weekly market to explore!

The beach directly in front of the hotel can be dangerous when wet.  We recommend the use of rubber soled shoes.

We hope these ‘snippets’ of information are useful, but as mentioned, if you have questions at all, please speak to Reception.

El Oceano is a privately owned and operated hotel and we all genuinely appreciate your custom.  We are here to make your stay perfect, your satisfaction is paramount!  Have a wonderful stay!
