“Great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel several times and find it very convenient. All rooms have sea view, but ask for a room on a higher floor and towards the front of the hotel. The standard rooms are functional and have everything you need.
Service at check-in is friendly and efficient and the great plus of the hotel is the wonderful breakfast buffet. You find everything you may want to eat or drink for breakfast, freshly-prepared omelette and cava included! It can get very busy if you go around 10:00, so try to get there a little earlier and you'll be impressed with the huge selection!

Room Tip: higher floor towards the front, we prefer the west (Benalmádena) side

Stayed at this hotel for the first time in many years on a weeks half board. Still the same great hotel.
Clean,both rooms and public areas.
Great food, varied, interesting and plentiful.
Great staff, happy and helpful.
Only one comment.
We never had a problem getting a sunbed round the pool as most people do tend to go to the beach.
However a few more beds wouldn't be a bad idea as some people did have a problem.
Also the use of chairs and the way people moved the beds around just makes the place untidy!!!!
Apart from that a few small bottles of CAVA in the mini bar would be a good idea. That's a personal thing I was on my holidays after all!
Well done Melia Costa Del Sol

Excellent hotel & location we were very impressed with the 'Melia'. All staff were friendly & helpful. The morning after we arrived we asked if we could move rooms (nothing wrong with ours was 5th floor with pool view but at very back of hotel) Receptionist immediately found us a room on 2nd floor with pool & sea view at front of hotel. Our room was lovely & quiet as room & hallways are carpeted. Breakfast was excellent & delicious with a huge choice to cater for everyone! The pool was small but never got that crowded so wasn't a problem. Free towels for pool & beach were a nice touch. 'Oscar' the pool attendant deserves a special mention-he was fantastic-friendly, helpful & always smiling-he was always busy making sure everyone was okay. Although it clearly said you couldn't reserve sunbeds every morning at 9am there was a mad rush-quite funny to watch from your balcony! Even though sunbeds were free people felt the need to put towels on & then leave the beds empty for hours which seemed quite selfish. Most days we were able to find sunbeds by siesta time. We had a lovely holiday & would recommend the hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view near the front of hotel.

Decided to book with the Sol Melia group as they have a good reputation. Managed to get two adjoining rooms one for the adults and one for the children. The room was in good condition, complete with mini bar for refreshments if required. The air conditioning is to the coldest but was sufficient to keep the room cool.
We stayed half board and the food was ok, especially busy at breakfast times.
The hotel is quiet and never had any problems with noise.
The pool is small in from of the hotel and the seats disappear quickly, which is not really an issue as the beach is just across the road.
We had no complaints about the hotel, it's a good standard normal hotel.

Massive hotel in a great location but with a tiny pool overlooking the road and not enough parking spaces for all the guests.
Our windows were filthy. We asked reception who said they would send cleaners but did not.
Nice breakfast.
We generally like the melia chain but this is one of their least impressive hotels.

We stayed at this hotel, the first week in August after reading the reviews of other guests.
On our arrival we were a little confused as to where the reception was after arriving by coach, but was quickly pointed in the right direction by other guests. After booking in, we made our way up to our room, which was better than we had hoped for. It was extremely clean and spacious.
We then opened the curtains to see what kind of view we had. What a nice surprise to see fantastic views over the pool and the beach.
We loved the choices of food at breakfast, and how much room there was in the dining room. The service was quick, but relaxed and seemed to cater for all nationalities. The staff were very polite and helpful throughout the hotel.
The next time we come to Torremolinos we'll definitely come here again. It made our holiday special.
