stayed at hotel fenix for 5 nights with 4 kids and two adults ( 2 family rooms)
generally hotel would be 3 star rating at most,
rooms and public areas were clean and well kept,, staff were helpfull when required,
Bedrooms were ok as double but small as a triple, wardrobes were very small., beds not comfortable and pillow was useless. Air conditioning was ok.
Pool external area is very small, but adequate in June as not busy.
Location is very good, located close to central retail / bar area at one side with beach area at other side. Hotel is built into cliff face so has two distinct characters. 5 minute walk to local train station, direct link to Malaga and airport- good service and cheap.
We stayed on half board basis , breakfast was ok ( poor for kids as pancake cooking area was never staffed) but could have been better, evening meal was fine but limited, wine available was poor. house
.Ive stayed a number of times on half board basis, If you accept limitations of menu offer this hotel had a reasonable offer.
Ive seen various posts regarding lack of English speaking staff ( most staff spoke some English), english breakfast etc. This hotel seems generally focussed at Spanish market- which we found fine.
Our first time in Torremolinos. I think it is limited for young kids. Its urban setting makes activity areas available to kids rare. This area is better suited to couples and retirement market.
Unfortunately our trip was cut short so we didnt get to visit many local area attractions
