“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We spent a very enjoyable 3 nights in this resort style hotel as part of our tour of Spain. The location is excellent, right on the beach and surrounded by shopping and restaurants. A special mention must go to the in house hair salon where my wife had her hair cut and coloured to her very great satisfaction and at a very reasonable price. Our room was excellent and the included breakfast was very good. We could quite easily have stayed here for a few weeks.

I recommend this hotel as it has the best location, best food and really helpful staff! I also can recommend take HB because kitchen in hotel is really good but cheaper than local restaurants. internet worked very well may be because our room was near router )) initiaaly we had some concern about location - we thought it was a bit far from city center, but actually this is good - near the center.

My wife and I have just returned from a lovely week at Melia Costa Del Sol in Torremolinos. I am pleased to report that we really enjoyed our stay and overall I wish to praise Melia for the way they go about their business.

Before we left I emailed the Hotel with some particular requests and the very professional reception staff went out of their way to ensure my requests were met. Top marks to start off our holiday.

The views from our room were outstanding, the size of room and facilities again of a high standard, and the housekeeping needs special praise.

Before everyone thinks I am easily pleased I recommend you spend a break at the Hotel as I am quite sure you won't be disappointed.

My only recommendation for Melia to be even better would be the Restaurant - at Breakfast and Dinner Friday-Sunday inc the Hotel was full, and whilst it is difficult to predict if so many Guests all wish to eat at the same time, I do feel that perhaps 6 additional young staff, employed to clear and prepare tables ready for the next Guests, would be very welcome to Restaurant Management and Guests. That said the food was superb with vast choices.

I previously stayed at another Melia Hotel and became a Member of their mas rewards scheme. Being a Mas member gives you a discount from normal prices and you also collect, and are awarded, points which can also be used towards your cost of the stay.

Thank you Melia for such a good week, which made our Ruby Wedding Anniversary so enjoyable. Please continue to add bonus points to my MAS account and we will be even more sure to again stay at this impressive Hotel in Torremolinos.

Room Tip: As recommended by other Trip Adviser contributors, I requested a 6th floor room overlooking the Pool...

Stayed for 4 nights begining of October. Hotel is in a great location only 10 mins drive from the airport and directly opposite the beach. Lots of bars and restaurants close by and the town is only 5 alk from hotel. Hotel is very modern and clean. Room is a decent size with balcony overlooking seafront. The only negative was the air con didn't work so great. Breakfast was great with an extensive selection of foods on offer and even champagne everyday if you wanted. Ate in the cafe bar one night and food was excellent. Bar drinks service also great for evening drinks by the pool. Staff were all helpful. Pool area was quite small size but looked nice. Overall great stay and excellent value for money.

We took a short break to the sun. Chose the Melia as it is one of the best hotels in Torremolinos and very conveniently located for both the beach and the many restaurants in the area.

As previous contributors have said, the pool is rather small and the sun drops behind the hotel at about 3pm so if you want to sit out all day in the sun, you would probably be better going over to the beach - sun beds €4.50 for the day. The small pool is really the only negative point. The hotel does provides pool/beach towels - very important for those all important cabin baggage only trips.

Breakfast is good. Plenty of choice of both hot and cold options, and is served until 11 am allowing for a good lie-in.

We didn't dine at either the buffet or the Al la carte restaurant as there are some good options available near the hotel. I can particularly recommend El Sabor and the El Gato lounge for good quality food and wine, with first class service.

Room Tip: Try for a room on a high floor

I hope our American cousins don't get offended with the "Title of the Review". But the hotel while we were staying there,was used for coach tours to show them the delights of Spain, that we the British take for granted.
The Melia good location right opposite the beach,the room we had (468) had the sunny in the afternoon. Clean and tidy of a good standard and I must say the housekeeping staff that looked after our room were excellent .
Reception staff when we booked in was very helpful, the young lady that saw to us could not have been better.
The food is of a good standard, plenty to eat for breakfast and I don't think you could have any complaints. The evening meal though was a different kettle of fish,plenty to eat but not a great variety if you are staying for more than a week. My wife struggled in our 10 days here to have a enjoyable evening meal ( a fussy eater). My complaint if it is one that the restaurant is very noisy more like a up market canteen!
The pool area is no way big enough for the size of the hotel, but across the road there is a very big pool with sand to boot.
Overall we are enjoying our stay at the Melia and would come back here or their sister hotels(sol hotels) in the resort

Room Tip: Ask reception if you want sun in the morning or afternoon,mostly rooms that face the pool and that a...

We had a two night stay here at block A with a pool and sea view. View was great, but noise from the pool side can be disturbing in the evening.Central location along the tourist strip.
Conveniently close to all the great restaurants.
Room was clean and tidy. Spacious. Great free wifi in our room.
Breakfast was good, and food was plentiful.
Good service.
