“A Gem in the sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I recently stayed in this small hotel which although it is on the seafront, it was really quiet and pleasing.
Yes, holidaymakers were using the hotel, but it was all very relaxed and I was able to get my emails and conference calls done without any background noise spoiling the stay.
Nice clean, well appointed rooms.
This is a small hotel, which I would happily book the next time I am in the area.

This hotel was just amazing, the staff were fantastic, everywhere in the hotel was spotless.
We arrived after 10.00pm and the hotel insisted on providing us with food even though the restaurant was closed as dinner had finished at 9.00pm, we had a large pizza and a wonderful salad at no cost to us, the service we received for our weeks holiday was the best we have ever encountered, we have stayed at various 4 & 5* hotels and never have we encountered the personal touch that you get at this hotel, we can not praise the staff enough.
We had a wonderful weeks holiday there that was relaxing and peaceful and can't wait to go back there.
We have already advised other people about this hotel and they are looking to stay there next year.
The only negative is you did not know what meat you was eating at dinner as there were no labels as in a pig for Pork, a cow for beef, etc, but apart from that everything was fantastic.

Well done everyone at the hotel Tarik you made our stay extra special.

Room Tip: Request a room with a sea view.

Nicely situated across the beach. We stayed there 3 nights at the end of a tour of Andaloucia. We wanted to take advantage of the beach before returning home. The hotel Tarik location is ideal for that purpose. We were somewhat disappointed though by the room we were given (first floor by the swimming pool). When we first entered the room, the a-c system would not function at all. After reporting to the desk, I was told that it takes about 15 minutes before starting (?). Needless to say, it didn't and they had to send a man to take care of it. He did so by using a remote control which he kept. So the system would stay on continually when we were in the room with no control over the temperature. It was also very noisy. As for the room, it was large and clean but without a fridge. There was also a definite stench coming from the bathroom which, other than that, seemed well maintained. We ended up using a lot of deodorizer to no avail and keeping the bathroom door closed at all times. It reminded me of certain places in Mexico.
This is for the negative side. On the other hand, they have a pretty good morning buffet and it is rather a quiet place. The staff was also helpful. Perhaps a good makeover of the building would help.

Great location on the paseo opposite the beach. 10-15 mins from airport in taxi. Bars and restaurants close by. 10-15 mins walk to the train station and main town centre. Great breakfast. Friendly staff. Comfy beds and modern bathroom. Pleasant pool area and garden but no children's pool. Lovely lounge with free wifi, and pleasant bar and terrace area with reasonably priced drinks and snacks. Good for wheelchairs etc as it is straight out onto the flat beachfront

A pleasant enough beach hotel.

On the plus side the Tarik is just a ten minute car ride from Malaga Airport, situated right next to the beach, really clean, with very friendly staff throughout, nice pool (sunbeds always available).

Having seen on Trip Advisor that some people were not over enamoured about the evening buffet, we went B&B and dined around (which we prefer to do anyway), tons of restaurants and bars within a short stroll of the hotel. Tarik breakfast was quite acceptable though, and varied to cater for a mixed bunch of nationalities (high percenatge of older German couples though, some pretty rude ones amongst them). Don't expect a "Full English" breakfast however.

Our honest opinion is that the Tarik is pretty pricey for what you get, no fridge of any kind in room, very noisy air con in room. Also no kettle, cups or spoons (we read previous reviews and took our own).

This was our first visit to the Costa del Sol for several years, and it would appear that prices out there have gone through the roof, so maybe the Tarik's room rates were just keeping up with the rest of the resort. Around the resort expect to pay aroud 50 euros plus for a pretty average evening meal with wine/beer, up to four euros for a pint of beer, even 3-50 for an orange juice.

Certainly not a budget break these days.

Room Tip: You can ask for a sea view at the time of booking. Our room on the third floor had a great view over...

Just got back from a week here with my mum - location is across the road from beach / shops / supermarkets / restaurants. The tarik is a 3 floor hotel and was quiet not loud at all. What I also like is that there was not large loud groups so felt very relaxing and calm. The breakfast was lovely with fresh orange juice, dinner was nice to enough for you too choose what u want. Staff friendly and helpful. Shopping here is great so many shops too mooch around. Airport is ten mins away. You can take a walk along the beach front to belamadena marina too about an hours walk with shops all along the way! So overall fantastic for everything so much to do see and eat! One thing the bar opposite called copocobana we went there got cocktails where they seem to make up the prices and they taste fake not fresh they Tasted packet made and when we asked they did get quite funny and rude. Anyway brilliant holiday and great hotel and we will be coming back next year to the same hotel!

The restaurant looked promising for an average inexpensive evening meal. I had a prawn cocktail starter which was ruined by having apples and oranges mixed in with the Marie Rose sauce. What possesses a chef to put fruit in a prawn cocktail, it just did not gel. Having said that plenty of sauce to add to the large amount of prawns. My wife,s main a simple omelette and chips,came almost immediately after her starter,the omelette was only warm, the chips were nearly cold,and the plate was cold. All that tells me it had been waiting at the pass for a long time. Not a particularly a good experience and we won't be going again.
