Centro De Estudios Idea Aladino opened in 1993 in an emblematic building on the Costa del Sol known for its peculiar architecture in the shape of a boat. It was built in 1953 and the building has multiple windows allowing the sunlight go through every window of the building making the atmosphere bright, happy and colourful. It is known as “El Barco Aladino” and it is situated in a residential area of Torremolinos 80 metres from the beach, linked to Benalmádena Costa and only 15 min. away by car from the airport and the centre of Málaga.

It is connected with buses running every 15 min. and a train every 30 min.

The Centre has a Café, Library, Internet, access for disabled people and big large terraces.

Centro de Estudios Idea Aladino is a familiar business and it is the reason why we put our effort and enthusiasm for students to feel well attended and informed about any situation related to their studies and stay. When the student requires accommodation the Centre can find the most adequate place according to the student's preferences and needs. We accommodate students in apartments, hotesl or families including a transfer service from and to the airport.


Idea Aladino has a Language, Art and Music Department. All classes are assisted by qualified professional and experienced teachers. The use of traditional and modern techniques are used for the apprenticeship of students and for the acquisition of skills in each subject and for the achievement of official exams.

Students of all ages are welcomed and carefully placed in the most adequate groups according to their level and characteristic. We pay a special attention to create the best class atmosphere in order for the student to learn as much as possible without wasting their time.

Because we consider creativity and Art one of the most important motivations in life, Idea Aladino organizes concerts of varied music and art exhibitions periodically.
