Here you can see the different accommodation options. Maravillas recommends HOST FAMILIES for young people and adults who want a complete immersion in their stay during the Spanish course.
If you prefer APARTMENTS AND RESIDENCES for students we have several options, Conors, Parque Miel and Torremiel, owned by the school, which are a few meters away from our school and offer all the comforts and services.
Among its advantages we highlight the great opportunity to live an authentic immersion in our culture, to continue practising the language at home with family members, and to make new friends, all in a relaxed and fun environment.
The host families will invite you to participate in all the activities that they organize and will help you integrate and feel like at home.
The characteristics of each family are different, there may be young families with small children, separated ladies or retired couples, with or without pets. They can live in large houses, sometimes even with a pool or live in smaller apartments near the city center or the beach. The first condition to be considered as a host family is that they have time to dedicate to the students. The second is the distance from the school, which can’t exceed 20 minutes
We understand that for many students it is the first time they live this experience and we want it to be unforgettable. At the end or your stay, you will have really good memories, friends for life, and a second home in Spain!
All our host families have been carefully selected; before being admitted they have to pass a strict inspection by our accommodation manager. These controls are renewed every year.
In order to select a suitable family for you, it is important for you to fill out the registration form with complete details about yourself: in addition to the general information it is essential to indicate, for example, the state of health, allergies, preferences regarding pets, etc.
Just as we have personal information about the student, you will have the same information about the family and the house where you will be staying. We will send you a detailed family file – name, address, telephone, email, occupation, children at home and when possible even a photo – two weeks before arrival, at the latest.
Families have single, double rooms. Double rooms can only be booked by two friends who book together or for couples. If you have selected the accommodation with only breakfast, this is the only meal you will have at home. In general it consists of a continental breakfast, with coffee / tea, juice, cereal or toast.
If you prefer half board, the family will offer you breakfast and dinner every day. Upon arrival it is advisable to speak with the family to define the meal times, taking into account that they may vary a little from what you may be used to (remember that you’re in Spain) and discuss your preferences.
A suggestion: don’t hesitate to talk to your host family and inform of your preferences. We are sure they will be more than happy to satisfy your tastes!
Both at home and at the school cafeteria we can attend special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, halal and other requirements. Do not forget to inform us at the time of registration.
At the end of the stay, all students fill out an evaluation questionnaire where they can express their opinions regarding classes, accommodation, etc. and thanks to them, we have a quick feedback of your experience, which will allow us to constantly improve our work,
As a specialized school for young people, we take special care in choosing families for our youngest students. In the case of teenage students, accommodation is full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner included every day).
On week days, the family will take care of breakfast and dinner, while lunches will be served at the school lunch Hall. During weekends, they will receive a picnic lunch to take to the excursion (Saturdays) or they will eat at home with the family (Sundays)
The rooms will be double or triple, sharing with another student of different nationality, except if there are two friends / brothers who want to share.
As an alternative to host family accommodation, we offer our students the possibility to stay in mini-residences, classified “CAT.B”.
This is an ideal solution for students (over 18 years old) who want more independence, for a group of friends who want to stay together or for those who prefer to prepare their own meals.
The school has 3 self-catering flats, next to our facilities, in the city centre, and only 15/20 minutes walk to the beach.
They are flats to be shared between students and/or group teachers, of different capacities, with single or double rooms and bathrooms in the corridor.
They are fully equipped and all include a cleaning service twice a week, free wifi, bath towels and sheets.
This mini residence has 7 bedrooms – 4 doubles and 3 singles – four full bathrooms (with showers), a large living room and a large kitchen with 3 refrigerators and two washing machines.
This is the largest flat: the living room has air conditioning hot/cold and a large flat screen TV.
Each room has a desk, TV, electric heating and fan.
This mini-residence consists of 4 single rooms, a living room, 2 bathrooms (one with shower and one with bathtub), kitchen with utility room and a cosy terrace if you want to sunbathe and relax after a hard day’s work.
All rooms (and common areas) have hot/cold air-conditioning, TV and desk as well as a large flat screen TV in the lounge and a computer for common use.
