“Great location near the airport and beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

If you are flying in or out of Malaga airport, this location is perfect for a night or two. There is also free parking. On the Torremolinos side of Malaga but far from the crowds, it sits on the extreme east end of Torremolinos beach but is the only beach hotel and is right on the beach with no roads to cross. Large swimming pool with lots of sun loungers. A great full buffet for lunch or dinner for 18 Euros with free beverages including quality wine. There is also a fish shack on the beach in front of the hotel that attracts the locals at good prices for fresh fish. The rooms are fully equipped in the modern hotel style with wifi included. (The only negative for the hotel is a badly understaffed front desk which can lead to long waits depending on the time of day for any request including simple ones such a pool towel card as you have to join the same line as check-ins. The arrival housekeeping was also very late and didn't receive towels until late afternoon. If not for these service problems, it would be 5 star). Part of the Wyndham and Melia-Tryp hotel chains.

Room Tip: Almost every room has a balcony and ocean view

Forget this hotel if you are among the lots of young people looking for a lot of "movida" under the Spanish sun.
All the contrary, this is a perfect hotel for families and elderly people, who want to stay away from crowded beaches and have a good chance to relax.
The downside of being in such a calm location is that nothing is nearby - apart from the beach, which is literally 5 meters from the hotel. There are a couple of restaurants, but the one I tried was not that good.
That's why I would strongly recommend bringing your own car (as I did) or renting one if you are not the kind of people that like to stay all the time in the hotel. Yes there is a bus stop to Malaga (city center is around 9 km away) right in front of the hotel, but I wouldn't find it very practical to make two journeys a day to look for a good restaurant.
Would had been nice if, like in many other hotels, the gym was free for costumers, even if only during a part of the day...

Room Tip: All rooms are alike. Since the hotel is placed in an headland, they also all have a sea view, no mat...

My wife and I had a short break here in March. What a wonderful hotel,5 star all the way,room,food,staff and position all brilliant. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Bus stop and taxi rank just outside front door . Every thing very near to the hotel, yet far enough away to be very private.

Room Tip: ask for a odd numbered room ,this will assure you sun shine most of the day.

Hotel located very near the beach. Very close to Malaga Airport. Hotel is modernly decorated. Free parking. Distance to town - about 10 minutes by car.
Breakfast was very good.
Will definitely go there again.

Room Tip: Most rooms face the beach.

It's a great place if you're looking for a break by the sea. It's on the outskirts of the city, which is good in my opinion, because it's quiet. Our room had a wonderful sea view. The hotel itself offers many services. I recommend including breakfast and dinner meals when booking because they offer a wide range of foods, and they are fresh and tasty. We booked in winter for the summer, so it was also really cheap.

Tryp Hotel is located right on beach with all rooms in hotel having sea view.only 5km from Malaga and Torromolinos. Lovely walk to Torromolinos along beach or get bus from outside front of hotel. Plaza Mayor only 20 mins walk great selection of shops and restaurants.
Staff were very friendly and helpful especially Julian Pepe Jose and rest of team in restaurant/bar. Hotel is spotlessly clean and very quiet at night, has free wi fi throughout hotel, rooms come with mini bar and free safe and 2 hugh beds. Shower gel/shampoo /soap supplied towels changed daily. Good selection of food buffet style very good. Every room in hotel has stunning sea view. If you take a walk outside hotel you come across 2 supermarkets and about 5 restaurants all within walking distance. Fish Restaurant on beach, will definitely be going back again.

Spent four nights at the Tryp from 30 Mar to 3 Apr.

The location is great with views over the bay towards Malaga and Torremolinos.
It is a spotlessly clean hotel and the staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant serves buffet style breakfast and dinners and the choice was very good. Salad bar, hot food section breads puds etc. They also have a hot plate with a chef on hand to cook a selection of Meat and fish for you to order. We took the all inclusive option and lunch during our stay was from the a la carte menu and was delicious.

The bar area was not as comfortable as many hotels I have stayed in and lacked ambience, but I suppose, later in the season you will be able to sit outside at the pool bar and terrace. The staff however were friendly and service quick.

Our premier room had two huge double beds, tea coffee making bits and pieces and a mini bar. Fab balcony with amazing views, Iron and ironing board. and a safe. The bathroom had a hairdryer, hand soap and shower and shampoo gel, the towels were huge and you also got a bathrobe and slippers, excellent.

The only negative was the cost to use the gym and spa facilities. It is euros 7.50 per person or 15 euros per person per day should you wish to include the spa? Or 40 euros for the week, but the facilities on offer did not reflective charge being asked for. The gym itself is cramped and the spa facilites consisted of a jacuzzi and sauna as far as I could see. You can however use the indoor pool, for free, but they do ask a bathing cap be worn.

All in all the hotel is in a great location, bus stops right outside hotel if you wish to go into Malaga and costs 1.30 euro each way. Staff are excellent and its nipping clean. I would definately go back and would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: try to get a premier room on the eight floor, fabulous views.
