“Lovely small hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

My daughter and I have just returned from Tarik Hotel last week. I had chosen it because it was only three floors and was located near the beach. The Hotel was spotless inside and out and reception staff were friendly as were the waiting staff and bar staff. I had requested a room with a terrace and it was overlooking the pool. The balcony was very private and also had a sea view.
There was a large Mercadona supermarket at the rear of the hotel and also some small supermarkets only a few steps away. The walk to the town centre was only 10 or 15 minutes but didn't seem like it because there were shops and bars all along the street. The room itself was spacious and the bathroom had a shower over the bath which was excellent. There was a TV but we could only get 2 English speaking channels, both were news channels. All was spotless and cleaned everyday. We had a B & B option and I have to say my daughter only went down the first day. The breakfast was not great but the coffee machine in the restaurant was worth coming down for on its own! My only small gripe was that there was no fridge in the room nor a tea/coffee making facility as you would get in hotels at home. Overall I would definitely recommend this lovely little hotel but on a Room Only basis!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace overlooking the pool!

A friend and I recently stayed at this lovely hotel. The staff were professional and friendly and very good English speakers. It was lovely to stay somewhere that felt traditionally Spanish but was also spotlessly clean and had everything you would need. The hotel was in a great location - close to the beach, supermarket and lots of restaurants. Wifi was available in the lounge and there was plentiful breakfast available. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. My only very small suggestion would be for more fruit to be available at breakfast.

Room Tip: It's worth paying the extra for a room overlooking the pool.

We went as a group of friends in early July 2013. We had chosen the Tarik as it seemed good value with a great location right opposite the beach. We were expecting a fairly basic hotel to use as a base. The Tarik very much exceeded our expectations - friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms with air-conditioning, good showers etc. and a lovely spanish breakfast buffet. We didn't really use the pool much but the courtyard/ pool area was excellent, with lots of shade. The location was fabulous, right opposite the beach and the hotel was quiet and peaceful. We reckoned this must be the best value place to stay in the area. Would recommend and would love to go back.

Tarik Hotel is clean, comfortable and generally high standards of excellence. Rooms cleaned everyday and have private balcony not overlooked when sitting. Lovely maintained pool area with the only noise was the little finches birds tweeting around palm trees. Breakfast buffet was ok and coffee machines were excellent. We had breakfast elsewhere on number of occasions
We had a few negatives that I hope management would take as constructive criticism and rectify. Firstly we booked a double bed room with a sea view back in January of this year. On the day before arriving I emailed the manager of our requirements again as we were eagerly looking forward to Sea view room. On arrival we were told our room was ready and told by receptionists that ”is a very good room” .Room 212 is on first floor looking on to the flat roof of restaurant below and out to sea with your back to the pool. We were very disappointed and would not recommend this room if you had paid the higher price. Two hours later we moved to a room on 3rd floor after consulting with receptionist and the expressionless man .We were very happy with this room even though it had 2 twin beds instead of a double as ordered.
Power showers have a plentiful supply of hot water, but be aware when shutting off the water that it is the hot tap you turn first as the knobs are at bath level and like me you can mistakenly turn cold off first and you will not need to sunbath that day.
When a hotel says satellelite TV you assume that everybody is catered. Their was 40 TV channels with 3 English speaking News channels (BBC world,Bloomberg,CNCB)and they just repeated same news over and over and over and over again. Lots of English programmes but dubbed in Spanish and German. Either put some English channels on or on Hotel facilities website says Satellite TV (we do not cater for English speaking guests) and give the guests a refund for misleading them.
I read in an earlier review about sun beds been old and was conscience of this when using them. First day we were fine but the following day my back hurt on the older metal framed sun bed. After examining I found some of the metal framed beds are tightened underneath and depending who has been lying on them the cords loosen and your back is hitting on the metal crosspiece underneath. Weekly review of older metal beds and tightened when required because they are very uncomfortable and not all guests will complain to staff but will tell other guests and friends about facilities at hotel. Hope the negatives can be resolved to make your guests happier.

We enjoyed our holiday at this hotel because it has high standards, pleasant and happy staff except for expressionless man on reception. Good standards of cleanliness, location, peaceful at night and nice pool area. Will recommend to other people but hope TV issue is resolved by then.

Room Tip: Avoid room 212 looking at roof of restaruent

Just across from a lovely sandy beach, this small hotel has wonderful beach views, a great pool, and good food. We took the half-board option of dinner and breakfast and it was delicious, plentiful and cost effective.the hotel is low rise , only 3 storeys high. The staff were friendly and efficient.The balcony and view were superb and the room safe was very handy despite it costing $15 /week . We stayed for 3 weeks.We would stay again but not for so long.

Only negatives were that the room size was compact, the small double bed was very firm and the shower just dribbled - need to update the shower fittings we think.Luckily there was also a bath.The floors are tiled and the doors do make alot of noise unless closed with care.

Room Tip: Choose the twin rooms and push the beds together as the small double bed is barely adequate for a co...

Really affordable, right across the beach, central, nice breakfast buffet. Everything was as we had expected, or better. Good standard. Nice and welcoming staff. Simply a superb place :) a 10-15 min walk to the centre of torremolinos, where you can catch a bus or train to malaga central station. Recommended!

Just back (literally) from 5 days at Tarik Hotel, Torrbemolinos. Nice hotel, large comfortable room, decent balcony. Staff all very friendly and prepared to help anyway they can to make your stay pleasant. Generally meals were very nice, plenty of choice and lots of it (only one evening meal we didn't really enjoy). Next to a couple of lively Irish bars and across the road from sandy beach with plenty of comfortable sunbeds. Good promenade to walk along into Benalmadena if you feel like a change of scenery or you could go into the town centre and hop on a train to Malaga.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking pool/garden if possible
