The Hostal La Hormiga Voladora is one of those lovely, unassuming places that seem increasingly hard to find in this day and age, so imagine our delight when we came across it in our travels.
It is a beautifully situated and quirky seaside accommodation that fits in perfectly with the relaxed and typically Andalusian environment. Donkeys as well as horses freely trot around the local village and happily intermingle with the inhabitants, which makes an interesting change from the usual cats and dogs. Inside the Hormiga, the visitor will find the rooms to be no frills and simple, yet all are comfortable and furnished to good standards.
The bathrooms in particular are modern and tastefully decorated with seashell motifs; though it should be noted the apartments are somewhat plainer. Nevertheless, leave the gates of the Hostal La Hormiga Voladora and after a few steps you reach the superb, hardly touched, beach with its beautiful bay, white sands, dunes and clear waters – in our opinion, heaven by the sea! This get away, end of the world feel does not mean seclusion: the picturesque local village (it comes beautifully into view as you approach on the winding mountain road) offers many facilities, shops and restaurants which more than compensates the lack of services within the premises.
There are also interesting Roman ruins nearby to admire and the visitor will never be at a loss for things to do.

Nicht in Allem toll..
Date of stay 14/04/2015
Die Unterkunft hat einige sehr entzückende Zimmer , eines der Zimmer liegt im Obergeschoss und bietet sicherlich einen sehr schönen Blick auf das Meer. Wir hatten ein Appartement, von der Einrichtung und Ausstattung sicherlich recht schön, aber dennoch nicht so überzeugend. Der erwartete Meeresblick bot sich lediglich als kleiner Ausschnitt und zudem stehen noch die Autos der Gäste im Blickfeld. Das Schlafzimmer ging nach hinten hinaus und am Morgen war nicht zu erahnen, ob draußen die Sonne scheint. Schade waren die Energiesparlampen, die keine behagliche Atmosphäre Aufkommen lassen. Einzig wirklich unerträglich für uns war das Plastiklaken auf der Matratze . Alles in allem waren wir ein bisschen enttäuscht, wenngleich wir vermuten in einem anderen Zimmer und mit etwas wärmerem Wetter -bei dem man nicht so auf ein kuscheliges Zimmer angewiesen ist- wären wir glücklich gewesen. Es ist sicherlich einen zweiten Versuch Wert, so man weiß welche zZmmernummern die richtigen sind...
Schönes, einfaches Hotel

Sehr ruhiges, schönes Zimmer mit Meerblick. Leider kein Frühstück aber mit ein wenig Improvisation war das kein Problem. Sehr gutes Fischrestaurant gleich im die Ecke. Zum Meer sind es nur wenige Meter.

Ein wunderbar zurückgezogener Ort, der Ruhe am Meer bietet. ein Ort zum Erholen, Sehr freundliche Vermieter stellen eine einfache Unterkunft zur Verfügung, in der das Notwendige vorzufinden ist. Die Infrastruktur ist in dem Ort im Oktober etwas schwierig, daher ein Stern Abzug.
kleine, meernahe Idylle

sehr gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis, gemütliches Zimmer, gute Matrazen, Bad ok. Nette kleine Terasse, 50 Meter zum Strand. Freundlicher Service, gute + leise Klimaanlage. Einzig der fehlende Meerblick und fehlende Insektengitter sind zu bemängeln.
Soweit OK

Fehlend: Insektenschutz. Sauber, freundlich.

Bed a little bit too small. On the patio it would be nice to have a sun- bed. Fantastic view. Very clean. A magic place.

We are a German family of five (children aged 10, 8 and 4) and we liked staying our stay at the Hormiga very much. It is very close to the beach, pretty to look at and the common courtyard is very pleasant and sheltered from the wind. Bolonia is not too touristy and the beach is wonderful. If you want shelter from the sun you should make it wind-proof, though (two of the three days we stayed were pretty windy). We also walked up the dune (recommended!) and visited the Roman ruins (interesting and free for EU citizens). The flat is well-equipped (washing machine, shutters, but no dishwasher), although the air conditioning blew a bit too hard for our taste. There is a little shop just around the corner. Beatriz has become too old to run the business, her daughter Julia has taken over. She is nice. Her English is not brilliant, but we could make ourselves understood. There is no bakery any more. Just park outside the gate and walk in. The reception is on your left.
Gem of a place!!

Bolonia is one of my favourite places to go and I've stayed in other places there over the years as its always been a last minute booking. This year I was organised enough to book at the beginning of June and even then only just got in!! I have nothing bad to say about La Hormiga. I absolutely loved it!! We had a superior room with a terrace and sea view. It was amazing. The room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was insanely cute. It was also absolutely spotless one of the cleanest places I've stayed! I requested some more pillows which were brought to me straight away by who I think was the owner.. He was very friendly. On the ground floor there are lots of outdoor areas with tables should you wish to spend any time there. It's one of those places that would be amazing if you went there with a load of friends and block booked the whole place. But please don't book there as I want to be able to go back next year!!!
Gran acierto

Me dejé llevar por las sugerencias de secretplace, realmente acertamos en la elección. Desconexión total.
Super Hostel an Traumstrand
Date of stay 29/08/2015
Also dieses Hostel ist unbedingt zu empfehlen. Liebevolle gestaltete Anlage an einem Traumstrand. Absolut saubere und bis ins Detail gestaltete Zimmer mit Meerblick im ersten Stock. Das Gelände ist vor unbefugtem Zugriff geschützt und die PKWs stehen sicher auf dem Gelände. Alles in allem SUPERGUT!
Nice place

Sehr ruhige Lage, sehr sauber. Die Zimmer werden jeden Tag gereinigt. Meeresrauschen beim einschlafen beruhigt die Seele. Einfache aber schöne Zimmereinrichtung. Würde ich sicher weiterempfehlen.
Beautiful beach, lovely accommodation
Date of stay 04/09/2014
We really enjoyed our stay here. The beach is stunning, much busier during the four days than I imagined it would be but still lovely and relaxing. The hostal was very comfortable and spacious for the two of us, with a fantastic view of the sea. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Bolonia is perfect for beach and relaxation. Really busy during the day and quiet at night. For those wanting a night out Tarifa is about 30 euros in a cab and a beautiful fun town.

Estuvimos unos días alojados en una de las habitaciones con terraza y excelentes vistas de la playa de Bolonia. La habitación es funcional y está decorada con gusto y sencillez. La atención es buena y el hostal tiene su propio acceso a la playa. Nos gustó mucho el lugar pues es ideal para descansar y estar lejos del bullicio playero de otros parajes más concurridos y construidos. Lo recomendamos para parejas, ya que el entorno es romántico y tranquilo.
