booked online, only had trip advisor reviews to go off.
The room and ensuite were clean, the maids changed the beds 3 times during the week and the towels daily. All staff were helpful and friendly. Thanks to Fernando and Juan for the prompt bar service.
Very close to beach, shops and entertainment. The other holidaymakers (most have been going there two or three times a year for donkeys years) welcomed new guests and were quick to share experiences by recommending good restaurants and outings.
Better than a particular supposedly 4* hotel we once stayed in!
Bear in mind you get what you pay for and you'll have a great break.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony as the others are to the front of the building and you will definately...

Yet another great stay at the Tiburon, I don’t really have much to add, as have reviewed this hotel a number of occasions, I know a lot of regulars are worried about the changes but other than moving the reception desk and no longer employing misery guts on reception, we didn’t see any changes.

It was still as good, clean and pleasant as ever.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view on a middle floor.

Stayed at the El Tiburon for 10 days, 28th Aug - 6th September. Could not fault the hotel at all. Spotless, cleaned every day including Sunday. Staff brilliant and friendly. Only small pool and terrace but enabled you to meet other holiday makers. Location is great. Only fault was no air con, but we were facing the front of the hotel and it was a bit cooler. We did ask for a balcony but there was not rooms left. Had breakfast a couple of times and was not too bad at all.

We chose this hotel as it was at the cheaper end of the scale and we needed a break. When we arrived I was surprised how attractive the reception area was. We checked in quickly and easily and the room was a decent size and a decent bathroom.
We were on the first floor overlooking the pool. Pool is good but there were days we had to go straight out when the pool opened to secure a spot. It was cleaned every day as were the rooms.
The hotel is literally 2 minutes from the beach and the main street/bar area.
The hotel does all 3 meals and a bar service so you don't really have to leave if you don't want to. Food was reasonably priced and good enough.

Stayed here for 4 nights recently at the end of August. There's no a/c in room 306, just a fan that barely turns so might as well be non-existant! Extremely hot during peak season, impossible to sleep. On arrival the staff weren't welcoming or friendly, no smiles at all! I wouldn't recommend trying the food, it's salty and greasy - much better off walking 2 mins down the road and eating at a local restaurant with fresh seafood.

The location is very good, the beach is just behind the hotel maybe 1 minute walk. The town centre is much further down. But the area has a lot of restaurants and beach side bars in walking distance. Plenty of shopping around - so well recommended. Except don't stay in this hotel if you're not on a major budget!!

Room Tip: Request a room on 2nd floor. 3rd floor will kill you with the heat and no AC!

My husband and I have just returned from a 10 night stay here, we stayed in room 103 which had a pool view. There is also a small lift in the hotel. The pool was always warm and there were always sunbeds available. We had a drink at the bar one night and the atmosphere was friendly. We didn't eat in the hotel but there is a fantastic bakery 2 mins from the hotel - turn right at the hotel door then first right and the bakery is on the left corner It is extremely popular and everything is very fresh. They also make rolls to order. Most of the restaurants cater for Spanish but Nigel & Cheryl's - left at the beach walking towards Torremolinos was clean and friendly and good value - Sunday Roast every day or fish & chips mugs of tea, very good selection on the menu - its open all year round!

First the good points: Our room was very quite and the beds were comfy. There were 3 english tv stations. There is a bath with a powerful shower in it and always plenty of hot water. The rooms are cleaned every day and there are no creepy crawlies. There was a nice atmosphere in the hotel in a great location.

Not so good points: I know we booked room only but it would have been nice to have a fridge. There was no laundry facilities in the hotel or anywhere in the area. We bought a clothes-horse for 20 euros in a shop - turn right at the hotel door then first right and the first shop on the right sells them. We had to get an extension lead for the hairdryer which we bought at a shop left from the hotel door then first left and the shop is beside the taxi rank (approx 4 euros). There was no air-con and the ceiling fan was ok but we had to leave the balcony door open most of the time. For this reason I wouldn't stay in accommodation without air-con again (this was our first time to try it but air-con is necessary).

The towels were changed everyday but most of them were threadbare. We felt the sheets should have been changed more often.

TRIPS: The nearest train station is about 15 mins walk. We would highly recommend the BIOPARK in Fuengirola 1.80 each way on the train 17 euro entrance but worth every penny.

Also the Crocodile Park in Torremolinos approx 6 euros entrance I think it was around 1 o'clock they fed the crocs which was a great show and you can take a photo after on your own camera holding a small crocodile.

We got the train to Malaga. Picasso was born there and you can see his museum (6 euro entrance) and the house where he was born (3 euros).

If you want to go Marbella get the train to Fuengirola - then the bus from the bus station which is beside the train station.

La Carihuela is a great location but we found the sea cold even when you stay in it for a while. It was the same in Fuengirola as well which we didn't understand. The sea in Marbella had jellyfish in - so it is nice to have a pool in whichever accommodation you book.

The staff at the El Tiburon were lovely and the location is excellent. We would defo stay here again and pay extra if there was aircon, better towels and laundry facilities.

Room Tip: pool view is a must
