“Nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We had a very good experience for our first family holiday. Apart from the very small room to fit in a cot for my son, which i made it clear when booked, I cant complain about anything. Staff is very kind and helpful, service is speedy and excellent. the hotel is central...lots of restaurants and cafes around and just 40 minutes by bus form Malaga city centre. In addition it was very good for us since we were looking for a place to relax and the little pool for kids was ideal for our son. We will go back soon,

This is a gorgeous hotel, all rooms face the Mediterranean Sea. The location is perfect, you are on one beach and just around the corner from the other beach. To my surprise, there was no location to hang my wet bathing suit after use of their pool and the Mediterranean Sea across the street. I would have thought they would have had a pull line in the shower stall. Like most European hotels you have to put in a card key to keep everything running with electricity. No face cloth, hair conditioner, or lotion is provided. Free WiFi in the hotel room with your own equipment. If you used the computers in the lobby, there was a charge of €6 per 30 minutes on €9 for one hour. Another issue I had is that the sink plug did not hold water so I could not wash anything out. However, they had one of the best breakfast buffet I have been to while in Spain

Stayed here in this hotel during the first week of july, The hotel is located right on the beach front in Torremolinos so has perfect views out to sea.
It's obvious that this hotel was built in either the 60's / 70's by the style, but also must have had some recent modifications.
The rooms are of good size, the pool area is on the small side for the size of the hotel, i did not use this area but looked like all the sun beds were taken quite quickly everyday. Also the pool itself was small.
But look everyone in the hotel was helpful, the reception area is huge and recently refurbished & i would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Upgrade or ask for a room on one of the upper floors with sea view.

Location on the beach road was good. A very busy street with one high rise after another. Seems that most if not all rooms have some view of the beach. Breakfast buffet very good. Room clean and comfortable.

Very convenient location right next to the beach. If you want to go up into the town, you'll need to be prepared to climb a steep hill. Good buffet breakfast with a large choice. Staff helpful and friendly. Hotel is kept very clean. Gym is very small and not well equipped. The pool and pool area were attractive but a bit on the small side and became crowded particularly at the weekend. When we checked in we were initially given a room facing the outside with a very disappointing view. We asked to be relocated and they put us in a room facing the pool which offered a much better view. Overall good value for money and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the pool offer the best views.

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. The hotel is located directly on the seafront and a short but somewhat steep walk up to the centre of town! The staff were courteous and very helpful.

My room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable large bed. There is free fast wifi. The only thing that didn't work was the bar fridge in my room but not a big deal.
The breakfast was outstanding and you could spend hours working your way through all the options :)

I would highly recommend this hotel.
