“Another great stay here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We had another great stay here in September. If you book through Sol Melia and join their rewards you get free taxi to and from the airport. This worked well too. We requested a high floor and got the top floor. The rooms are great and its so quiet in the corridors of this hotel as its all carpeted.

Air con was fine. Ate in the hotel for breakfast. Definately worth staying bed and breakfast.

There are so many nice restaurants in Torremolinos that we didnt eat in the hotel at all.

Definately will be staying again.

This hotel works! ... It is very large but because it is very well-managed it makes for a very satisfactory stay. The Spa is well worth a visit if the weather is not good! ... or if you prefer a day trip to Malaga which is a mere 30 minutes away by train

Room Tip: All the rooms in the basic category are the same but if you want it to be as quiet as possible ask t...

This is a very large hotel with views of the sea. I was delighted to find that we had a generous balcony with plenty of room for drying beach wear or other essentials and for sitting on and relaxing to look at the ocean. You can just walk across the road and you are right at the beach, or you can keep walking to the right when leaving the hotel and walk to the next bay about 20 minutes along a good, wide pavement. There is a wide selection of seafood restaurants to choose from here, or choose one of the many restaurants of cafes near the hotel.
Buffet breakfast selection was quite good - a big space with many tour groups dining. Gym was on groundfloor and was good for a workout. Sunlounges were for hire on the beach in front of the hotel, which would be a good idea if you wanted to spend some time lying on the beach as the sand was quite coarse.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have an ocean view - some only have a partial view.

This was an overnight stay after late arrival into Malaga airport. We got a room at a fantastic rate , free wi-fi, nice lounge/bar area , breakfast included and they even sent a taxi free of charge to collect us from the airport ! What more could you ask for ? Would love to stay at this hotel again when we have more time - for the price you can't beat it !

. Just back from a week in the Melia Costa del Sol and so happy that I finally got what I always hope for on holidays but rarely get - a fabulous room with a great sea view in a quiet location.
Also have to mention how comfortable the beds were and how we liked the modern and spotlessly kept bathroom. We liked the food there very much - huge selection - should suit all tastes. The staff were great - very helpful and friendly.

We will be back to Torremolinos again - in the winter months - because I imagine it must be
extremely busy during the summer months and of course it will be this great hotel again.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have a sea view because of its design but the higher floors would be even better.

Old hotel which seems to have been refurbished. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are good with wonderful views of the sea. The breakfast is sumptuous. Be aware fo the additional charegs for parking for example where you can park on the street for free

The Hotel is perfectly located in front of the beach on the Paseo Maritimo. Even thought it belongs to the most famous Hotel chain in Spain it is just a little bit worst than the other Melia I have been.
The swimming pool is really small.
The rooms were confortable, spaciouses and very clean. The bathroom was small but well equipped.
Good breakfast, medium high quality of food.
kind staff at reception, sometimes unpolite the waiters.
My rating is 4 out of 5, the hotel is good but something did not completely sotisfy me.
