“Tryp Guadalmar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Our first time at this hotel and thought it was excellent. We had half board and the food was very very good. Lots of choice and good quality. We had a room over looking Torremolinosis and this was perfect because we had the evening sun on the balcony until sunset. Clean room and very comfy beds- I would go back tomorrow!
It is in a very quiet location but the bus stop is outside and it took us about 25 minutes to travel in to Malaga but we were more than happy to stay around the hotel and make the most of the room.

Close to airport, so taxi from airport to the hotel was quick and cost was less than 20 Euros. The rooms were newly renovated and clean. Air conditioner was noisy. Found a few silverfish bugs in the tub. Beds were slightly hard. Restaurant and lobby were nice. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at TRYP Malaga Guadalmar Hotel despite the few minor issues that I mentioned.

Was lucky to stay on a business trip for our motorcycle testride days through Andalucia. In those 14 days I was amazed from the friendlyness and helpfulness of the whole staff from the maintanance guys over the reception, the kitchen, the waiters and last but not least the selling personell with those beautiful ladies. A pleasure to work with them. And overall the whole staff had always a smile for you on their lips. That always made me feel very welcome.

The room was clean and suited our purposes. After a whirlwind trip to Seville and Granada, we wanted to relax at the pool/beach and do some shopping. The breakfast was very good, the beach is small and if you're thinking "Florida" then unthink that- the water is chilly and the sand is brown, but there's sunshine (at least from 11am till 5 pm- mornings and evenings are chilly and cloudy). We collected pretty pebbles instead of seashells. There is a convenient bus to the downtown and another bus to a shopping mall that has Zara, H&M, etc... We also took a half day trip to Marbella (in our rented car). The hotel offers arranged trips and games/language classes/cooking lessons. Free parking and free towels, but it's a hassle to organize for both. There are two little restaurants on the beach in front of the hotel- high quality seafood but both of my chicken dishes left a lot to be desired. Our hotel faced west and while the view was lovely, it was very noisy at night with the planes flying overhead and trucks beeping in the wee hours.

My husband and I stayed here for one night as a last night treat at the end of our holiday and I booked it because it was near the airport and the description made it sound perfect. I booked a half board deal on the Tryp website which I thought was quite reasonable for what is described as a 4 star hotel with `stunning sea views from each bedroom`. Unfortunately it didn't live up to the hype!
We arrived at reception to check in, the male receptionist was on the phone speaking to someone in Spanish. There was another couple in front of us who had clearly been waiting a while by they're expressions. We stood there for 10 minutes until he finally took down the person's phone number and put down the phone - by this time there was another French couple waiting behind us. He dealt with the couple in front and then said hello - no apology, no small talk, he asked for our passports, he gave me a form to fill in and while he was putting our details on the system he started talking to the couple behind in French, he was very jolly and smiley and was all please and thank you with them. I more or less got thrown the card key and was asked if we wanted lunch or dinner as our half board option - while I was discussing this with my husband he continued to tell us the times the restaurant was open and basically talked over me. He is one of the rudest people I have ever met, how on earth he is a receptionist I don't know!!! When I booked the room online I requested a room on a high floor but you've guessed it, we were put on the second floor! The `stunning sea view` was of the roof of the restaurant and air conditioning system, we could just about see the sea to the right across the roof and outdoor swimming pool. It also state's all rooms have a balcony, our room did indeed have a balcony with 2 cheap white plastic chairs and a small table, it also had our air conditioning unit which was covered in rust and looked like it would fall apart at any minute. The bedroom was big with 2 small double beds that were comfortable, it was 28 degrees outside but we had a heavy quilt on the beds - why? The walls had clearly been painted not too long ago but the furniture was battered and the floor tiles needed regrouting. The bathroom was ancient, again the tiles needed replacing or regrouting. There were 2 long dark hairs on the floor by the bidet and 2 other small ones in it - disgusting. There had been at least 2 leaks in the ceiling of the bathroom which someone had tried to paint over and the coving was a mixture of yellow and brown stains.
The food in the restaurant was no more than average but the manager was very nice. The friendliest member of staff in the building was the barman but we only had 2 drinks because we had to be up early to catch our flight back to the UK. All the other staff we passed didn't even acknowledge us but were very friendly with all the French guests. So if you don't speak French or Spanish don't stay here! And it's not worth the money.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

big room and very clean, free car parking and that's the only nice things I can say about it. 70's reject. food like something from a time warp. staff completely uninterested, setting ghastly. I really didn't think hotels like this existed any more and I am not sure they should do. Surely travelling is about more than what they are offering.

Room Tip: they are big and clean. if that's what you are looking for in a hotel 412 was the right distance...
