“2nd time around.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This was my 2nd stay here and I enjoyed it again especially the food which is very good. It would b
e difficult to pick any faults with this hotel but I would say keep a weather eye open for the cocktail barman !, other than that it was a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have more sun per day,
See more room tips
Green Features: Difficult to say,I was'nt trying to pick holes in the hotel's practices but seemed pretty environmentally frendly to me. There were energy saving light controls in the passageways going to the rooms which were good but no ice making machines available which is annoying.

We checked in to the Melia as the last week of our two month holiday experience in Spain, what a great way to end a long holiday. Chose the hotel from TripAdvisor reviews and we were certainly not disappointed, from the check-in to the check-out everything was excellent. Great room (we had seafacing on 7th floor), superb breakfasts and service. Stayed for eight nights but could have stayed longer, would certainly recommend the Melia to anyone going to Torremolinos

This is my 2nd stay at this hotel I stayed for 9 nights from 8th July. As last time check in was quick and painless had a Jnr suite on the 6 the floor .room was spotless and kept that way for the full holiday.The food at this hotel is very good can't remember having the Same main course over the full holiday and breakfast is the best I've had in any hotel. They have made some changes they have built a new sun bed area now every one can get a bed.For sure we will be back next year

Room Tip: If you can afford it get a Jnr suite great views great balcony

We'd read such marginal things about the area (in general) that our expectations were low. What a surprise! Nothing really historic here, just an awesome resort area filled with happy vacationers from a multitude of countries. It has such a happy, festive, we-dare-you-not-to-have-a-good-time feeling about it. The sound of the sea, the wide expanse of sand, the rows upon rows of fun litle bars/restaurants lining each side of the pathway along side the sand only enhanced the resort and beach experience.

There are an impressive number of sand sculptors who assemble the most imaginative kinds of creations. It is appreciated if the observer drops a coin or two into the creator's container.

Back to the hotel: it is light, bright, really tall, and well located. Walk out the door and head in any direction for a different experience: shopping, beach time, food and drink sampling, etc. The rooms were very nice, clean, contemporary and bright. Our room backed up to the huge side of a hill and we could see the water easily from the patio door. Being off the main road, our room was very quiet.

Breakfasts are held in a very large room and the offerings were as good as can be found anywhere. They will even cook eggs to your preference (look for the omelette station).

The staff was always courteous, helpful, and cordial. We would gladly stay here again (and do hope to at some future time). It was amost enjoyable experience and it was a welcome change from the almost-daily touring of the ancient monuments.

The absolutely perfect weather played a large role in our experience, as did the excitement surrounding the World Cup soccer mania so evidenced there. The people really get into this! Costumes, dedicated bars for the separate teams, etc. It felt, at times, a little like a (wonderful) carnival.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back will be more quiet

You cannot fault the hotel for its location right on the beach of Costa del Sol with the shopping centre of the town within minutes of walk behind. It's extremely handy for enjoying the beach as well as shopping and dining at the town centre. Full marks for that!

The hotel is large and of modern design to make the best use of its location to provide seaview rooms to guests. The only problem is that if you do not pay well enough to get a full seaview room, you may end up like we do (as one in a tourist group) with a room with only a very partial seaview from the balcony/ No complaint however as we only stayed for one night in a tour around the region.

No complaint over the guest services either for our brief stay as everything (check in, check out and room services) was running very smoothly and effectively..

We had buffet breakfast and dinner there in the restaurant. For a hotel of such size, it is understandable that the food service was of the mass production type. But to be fair, both the quality and range of food were of a very good standard, particularly in the wide choice of fruits and drinks.

We were happy with the hotel service as a whole and wouldn't mind returning for a longer stay to enjoy all the facilities and amenities close by..

We stayed here for three nights while attending friends' wedding. We booked a suite with a huge balcony overlooking the sea.
The decor is...dated! Indeed, the whole place could do with a decent makeover. But to be fair, this is largely catering to families and beach lovers, not refined sophisticates.
We had a large living room, a large double bed and a reasonably sized bathroom. I was disappointed by the lack of bath robes but again, this is a 4* hotel so modify your expectations.
Breakfast was something of a bun fight but again, despite huge numbers of people pouring into the dining room, everything seemed well stocked and the food was generally pretty good.
What I would say is that the pool is tiny for such a large hotel! Many people commented on it - though the beach is, literally, opposite the hotel.
The other gripe is the lifts - tiny and slow!
Overlal not a bad hotel, probably worthy of its 4* status (just) but personally I was pleased we were only there for a short break.
