This is our second visit to the Hotel Don Paquito in Torremolinos. We think this place is a little gem since it is small and offers great, personal service with lots of smiles.
We think one of the outstanding features is the quality and range of food on offer both at breakfast and for the evening meal.
The dining room is small thus retaining a somewhat exclusive character unlike many in larger Spanish hotels. It is light, airy and welcoming.
The food is always well presented and nicely cooked. There’s a wide range so all tastes ought to be catered for. The salad section is particularly excellent in our view. House wines cost around €10 with large, bottled water coming in at €1.50 so nobody can complain about the prices here.
The rooms are spacious enough, very clean and functional. A top tip is to ensure you have a pool-facing room since these catch the sun from early morning until sunset. They all have small balconies so private sunbathing is possible when you want it.
The rooms at the other side of the hotel are in the shade and also face the road. On both our visits we were able to get the sunny pool-facing ones thus maximising on light and warmth.
The Don Paquito enjoys a good location with everything being within easy reach. There’s a back way up into the town for easy access to the coastal train station. It does involve an uphill walk though. This may be a little steep for persons with mobility issues? Getting to Malaga, Benalmadena and Fuengirola is therefore simple and cheap.
We think that the Don Paquito punches above its weight for a three star establishment and I notice in other reviews how many of the guests have also chosen to return to this place time and time again. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend this great little place for a restful and slightly ‘exclusive’ holiday in Torremolinos. This hotel will appeal to the more mature, discerning guest who appreciates traditional hotel comforts in a quieter area of the resort. The vast majority of guests appear to be couples and the restaurant has practically all tables for two. It represents fabulous value for money.
The free wifi is available throughout the hotel and in the rooms . The network is fast, reliable having no downtime during both of our visits.
