“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

we came into this hotel recommended from a friend and the truth that we loved the spacious rooms all with sea views, the bathroom is large with respect to cleanliness is great, is beachfront and the situation is great because you have all kinds of bars and restaurants to eat and go out at night, the attention of the staff very friendly and attentive to what you need, in order to charm us.

Have stayed in hotels all over the world and found this hotel to be the best one we ever. The people were friendly, courteous, helpful and the hotel was beautiful. Spotlessly clean, rooms beautifully appointed. Entire atmosphere was top notch. Would recommend and will stay there again when traveling in Spain.

We chose a junior suite in this hotel which had a large 25sq mtr balcony with patio doors from the sitting room and bedroom. Overlooking the beach and promenade it was a great position. The suite had two telephones and two flat screen TV's and had good free wi-fi reception. Breakfast was a reasonable standard and we had 3 lunches and 3 dinners in La Proa restaurant which had a reasonable wine list.
We used the hotel as a base as we hired a car at Malaga airport (only 12 minutes to the hotel) and managed to visit on different days Fuengirola, Puerto Banus, Mijas and one longer trip to La Lantajuela, near Seville. The weather was changeable but we had a great time.

Room Tip: Go for a suite if you can make the extra cost

Helpful, friendly staff on reception - as were all of the other staff we encountered. The room was perfect; clean and well-equipped with wi-fi and safe provided free of extra charge. We used room service on one occasion and found it satisfactory. Breakfast offered everything you could want in comfortable surroundings.

Just stayed on a B&B basis for one week in this Super Hotel and can Honestly say My Husband & Myself came back feeling Relaxed & Refreshed the Hotel is Spotlessley Clean the Staff are Efficent, Proffesional and Discreet.
A Sea View is a must for us and Every Room at the Melia has this which makes the Location perfect for us, Also the Lift up to Torromolinos Town is just out of the Hotel and Turn Left and cost 50c per person which will save you a long walk up the steps and is well worth it.
But back to the Hotel - Breakfast is served untill 11.00 am every day and the Reastaurant is very Modern and Clean and Food was of a Higher Standard than the Usual Buffet options on offer in most Hotels, Hot Coffee & Hot Milk is brought to your Table or you can choose to use the Machines if you prefer, Sparkling Wine was available every day at Breakfast and also all eggs are cooked to order and the Chef's soon get to know what you like. We also used the Gasto Pub for Evening Meals and found this to be excellent as well - if a lit bit expensive.
Our Room was cleaned to a very high standard every day and had clean good quality Bedding & Towels every day, also the free WiFi worked very well and the fully carpeted rooms and corridors helped keep noise levels to a minimum and there are a couple of English TV Channels available should you require them, also a decent Hairdyer and Bottle Opener in the Bathroom and a well stocked Minibar with reasonable prices. what more could you want, we will definatley be returning to this establishment.
Forgot to mention the Bed's which are some of the most comfortable i have every slept in.
Can't comment on the Spa & Gym as we never used it - we were too Busy enjoying our Holiday!

This was our second visit. We booked a junior suite which was spacious and had a huge balcony and great views to the sea sand beyond. We can't really fault this hotel as it is excellent value for money. We also stay at its sister Melia hotels in Marbella and the brand is consistently top quality in terms of decor and service as well as amenities and food. Recommended

Room Tip: Try sunny side building

This hotel is a large hotel and it looks a bit ugly from the outside but the classy looking decor inside makes up for that. As I was there for 4 nights prior to Christmas the festive decorations were absolutely beautiful in the public areas. The room was a standard one and was spacious, clean & comfortable. the free wi fi worked without a hitch and that was welcome. There was a mini bar with space in it to store some items of your own.

Amazing view from the balcony over the road (which was quiet as it is a terminus there) to the beach & sea - you could clearly hear the waves lapping onto the shore all night because as the balcony wasn't connected to any other, I felt safe leaving the balcony doors open all night - yes it was lovely & warm in December!! My balcony on the top floor had the sun most of the day!
I was a middle aged woman travelling solo and I felt so safe in this hotel. the staff were welcoming and helpful in every area. I received a lovely greeting from reception which really made me happy.

Later on when I somewhat nervously ventured down to the La Proa bar/restaurant to see if I could find myself a nice glass of rosado wine, I was welcomed by the bar manager/head waiter like a VIP. I was shown to a table and my glass of wine accompanied by a martini glass full of large olives was presented with a flourish. They offered me a food menu (even though it was after 10.30pm) and were extremely attentive, it was quiet in there so they could look after me well, but I was left with the feeling that nothing would be too much trouble. It was such a pleasant experience I went in there every night of my stay!!

Breakfast was taken in the larger main restaurant and again a lovely greeting and attentive service from the staff in there. Fantastic choice of food & drinks and your eggs are cooked to order. There was even sparkling wine available and I was almost tempted to give it a try.

You have to pay for car parking in the hotel car parks but I got a free space in the parking spaces on the road outside. However you do not need a car here. Great location for the beach obviously, some nice restaurants very close by. You have to go up a lot of steps to get to the town centre (walks off some of the carbs from the breakfast pastries!!) but there is a public lift. It is a ten minute walk to town and a further 5 minutes to the train station in Torremolinos for the train straight into Malaga (20 mins) which stops at the airport en route. Once again the hotel reception staff were so helpful giving me directions and local information including maps & museum information for Malaga.

I particularly liked the fact that it felt like a very international hotel and not full of British people. It is an absolute gem for the price.

Would I go again? I have already booked a long weekend there. I can't wait to go back!!
