It is possible to get one's expectations up when traveling to another country. We had spent 2 nights in Barcelona and flew into Malaga and a quick taxi ride down to Torremolinos and arrived at this hotel with those expectations. The front desk was polite, orderly and efficient. The issue for us was the room. We were told we had a room with a view of the sea when booking. However when we arrived in the room our expectations of a "Sea View" were shattered as one had to go out on the balcony to see the SEA around the corner of the hotels' edge. I will yield that this does constitute a "Sea View" however in my humble opinion it is NOT. After a bit of back and forth they moved us to the front (Sea side) of the hotel into a room a few doors down from the elevator. Wonderful sea view. Good thing we enjoyed the view of the sea since the elevator traffic was horrendous. The sound of roller luggage and people talking all night was enough make us never want to stay at this hotel again.
PLUSES: BREAKFAST, POOL and FRONT DESK: Be sure to do the breakfast buffet in the morning as it was one of the saving graces of this hotel. The Pool was lovely with a person on staff to help you with towels and lounge chairs just get their EARLY. The front desk was accommodating.
RECOMMENDATION: Make sure you are on the FRONT side of the hotel to have a view of the Sea. Also make sure you are a great distance from the elevator. Super thin walls allow you to hear the sound of other rooms and every roll or everyone's roller luggage and conversations in the hallways.
