There are two types of accommodation: host family or shared apartment with other students.
Staying with a host familiy gives you even more opportunities to practice your Spanish and see how the Spanish live. Most people choose an individual room with half board. So the family will provide your breakfast and midday meal. In the evenings you will probably go out for tapas or have snacks with the other students in the many terrace bars and restaurants.
Shared student accommodation is the other option. You either have your own room or share it with another person. There is a a shared kitchen and normally a lounge. The photo on the left shows a typical bedrrom in a shared student apartment. As you can see, it is not 5 star luxury and you might have to put up with horrible green curtains but the apartments are clean and pleasant. There is normally a study table in each room.
A lot of the family accommodation in Almuñecar is very good becuase many of the families live in urbanisaciones and some of them have swimming pools. All accommodation is within 20 minutes walking from the school. It is never necessary to drive or get a bus.
