Some friends asked me to find a deal for them next summer. Unfortunately it's not suitable for them but maybe it is for someone else. Based on 2 Adults in August 2015 (Peak Season).
Staying at the 4* Hotel Plaza del Castillo, just 12km from Malaga Airport, this hotel is rated 4.2/5 on TripAdvisor.
Cost for the 7 Night stay through Hotels.com is currently £274 total.
In terms of flights, there are plenty of choices around. The best for me is British Airways from London Gatwick at £133.54 per person. The details of which are below,
Gatwick (London) - Malaga - 12 August 2015
Malaga - Gatwick (London) - 19 August 2015
Although if you want to sacrifice these times or prefer to fly from Bristol, you can actually save a little and go for these flights (out with Easyjet and back with RyanAir).
Bristol - Malaga - 12 August 2015
Flight EZY6057 (Easyjet)
Malaga - Bristol - 19 August 2015
Both these options allow for a carry on bag, but if you need any more allowance for the hold you can purchase at the check out.
Hope that helps someone.
