“ok if you want to travel around sightseeing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Room was dark and dank but clean, beds towels changed daily toiletries etc replenished.We went all inclusive. Food was ok could mostly find something we liked, pasta paella fish salads chicken fruits and soups. The dishes wre not labelled so had to guess sometimes. The only times snacks were available were an hour or so before the dining room opened before lunch and teatime,which were cold pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers breads some pastries and cold meats and cheese, not very palateable. They were shortstaffed so had to wait and wait at the bar then they tended to serve Spanish guests first. Pool was nice and not overcrowded hardly any sunbeds though so had to lie on towels on the grass. The worst part for us was the lack of entertainment in the evening there was a kids disco then they had a bit of a disco until 1200 mostly spanish. We saw a spanish pianist one night and they had Mr and Mrs, again in spanish. Ourselves and 17 year old daughter were bored stiff. This hotel is in Las Alamos a suburb of Torremolinos there were a couple of bar restaurants nearby and it was a 20 minute walk to the beach and half hour walk along the front to Torremolinos. We tended to use the public transport systems to visit Mijas Malaga Fuengirola and Torremolinos. We spent quite a bit travelling out as hotel so quiet and boring at night. We would return to Costa del sol again but not to this hotel. If you get a really cheap deal it would be fine so you use money saved to go out or if you want an average hotel with ok food and want to chill out its fine. We didn't really get a cheap deal so we were disappointed with the lack of evening entertainment.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the poolside of hotel as the rooms at the front overlook a petrol station and busy m...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Me and my little girl stayed in this hotel for 3 nights booked it as it was only 10 minutes from airport and did'nt want a long transfer just for the short amount of days we were there. Check in was quick and the receptionist was helpful. Rooms have a small bathroom and small balcony but there clean and the towels and bed linen are clean. The hotel needs a make over and updating a little. It is a very spanish hotel not many british stay here. If your looking for british bars or gift shops etc you won't find any round here its in like a residential area but a nice area. We walked for miles to find a gift shop and bar for an english breakfast but never found one. We just used a moroccan style cafeteria for a cheese and ham toasted sandwich for breakfast which were lovely and which was down the side street with a few other bars and a supermarket. Beach is about a 15 min walk its a lovely walk but all you will find on the beach is bars no shops and a very long car park that seems stretch as far as the beach.There is little to do in Los Alamos. The train station is just around corner from hotel which is about 1.80 euro which takes you into torremolinos its self. There is a mcdonalds virutally right next door to hotel. The hotel is situated on main road but if you get a pool view room you won't hear the traffice. The hotel is clean throughout. The pool area and garden is relaxing there is alot of spanish familys the pool was'nt over busy and always went quiet around 1pm and we were just the only ones round pool.Theres a crazy golf for kids and a kiddies disco. Pool is kept clean and well maintained and there is a life guard on duty throughout day as its quite a big pool and is quite deep too theres is a kiddies pool to. Could do with some more sun loungers. This hotel is ok for what you pay for it, if you just want a bed ,clean towels( which we had changed everyday) a mirror,and a pool area this is an ok hotel. Im not one to moan really cause only go for the sun not to sit in a room allday and inspect every area of the room with a fine tooth comb just to complain as long as i got a mirror and a sink im happy. The bar could do with a memeber of staff on at all times as you have to phone to reception for service.Theres also a games room with snooker table football table and air hockey and a vending machine with drinks and snacks in.

Not in Torremolinos, on outskirts. Hotel clean enough, but no air-con, room stinks of dampness. All-inclusive??? Never anyone behind bar, had to constantly phone reception to ask for service. Restaurant - food never very hot, lukewarm. If you like fish or pasta, you might be alright. Soup and fruit ok. Only all-inclusive holiday I've been on and actually lost 3lb in a week!!! No entertainment, kids disco at 10pm for a short while??? No money exchange, had to get train into Torremolinos. Petrol station right in front of hotel which is next to a VERY busy road. Front rooms overlook this road. Pool ok. Only member of Staff who attempted to make you feel welcome was in restaurant, didn't get his name, but he's wasted in this hotel!!! Not a "holiday hotel", more like a travel-lodge without the facilities! Defo won't be back and won't recommend.

This hotel has not been taken care of since 25 years ago. It's just a hotel living out on elderly state subsidized travel and that it was somehow rated 3 stars. I really can't figure out why authorities have not dropped the 3 star rating. The location is just next to the very noisy highway, if you get lucky you can even get a perfect view of the gas station just 10 meters away. Rooms, corridors, elevator, beds, bath etc.. are completely worn out. The buffet has absolutely no appeal and its tasteless. Watch out because it's a popular pick by unscropulous travel agencies offering cheap accomodation.

The food was disgusting, bacon raw and dipped in fat!! The only food that you could recognise was the fruit.

I literally heaved at the presentation of the food on one day, disgusting.

I only ever saw 4 members of staff in the hotel. You even had to clear your own tables in the restaurant. there was no service at all. Needless to say we ate very little in the 5 days we were there.

This is the worst hotel that we have ever stayed in.The room overlooked the busy coast road and a garage. Although the room was clean, the pillows and top cover on the bed had a discusting smell of stale sweat.
The food was inedible, for example, the scrambled egg had a brown crust on the top!!!! and the bacon looked like it had just been dipped in fat. Breakfast and evening meals were equally as bad.
If for any reason you do decide to venture there, don't have a taxi from the airport. We were charged 20 euro's for a short trip. Take the train directly from the airport. it stops near the hotel and only cost 1.25 euro's.
