“Average hotel; good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is such a hotel where the several costa's are 'floaded' with. Rooms are good, breakfast is OK, but (in april) no dinner possibilities.
It hardly costs anything, so one should not demand too much here. Location is good.
If you really have to be in Torremolinos and do not have that much to spend; this can be a good choice. But for a bit more you'd better stay at the Melia.

Room Tip: Take a room with a full sea view on a high floor.

I do not understand your comment that there is not the possibility of dinner (in April). The Isabel is open from March to November and throughout the period has a menu for both lunch and dinner in the bar area and in the rooms, so I really do not understand your complaint. I totally agree with you, for a little more you can stay at the Melia.

Just back from a weeks holiday in this hotel. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel, but I could not stay here again due to the strong cleaning agents that are used for cleaning the rooms, very overpowering to the point of runny eyes and nose. This is a small hotel with lovely relaxing areas. Lovely breakfast provided, but seems to lack staff, very hard to get a drink at the bar, it seems to be that t he breakfast staff multitask for everything, Beds are very hard and take some getting used to. Hotel reception very good and efficient and this hotel is close to the beach and all amenities.

I want you to know that I will study carefully the issue of room cleaning. I totally understand your reaction and I want you to know that I will resolve the problem immediately thanks to your comment. Regarding the mattress, this is more complicated especially since there are customers who find them to soft and others like you who find them to hard. Maybe then they are the best mattresses for a hotel. Again, thank you very much for your feedback.

Just back from a four night stay at the lovely Hotel Isabel. This is our third time using this hotel. The pleasant, hard working staff helped to make our visit very comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary bottle of champagne. Great location, fine breakfast, rooms with lovely sea view. Looking forward to returning again.

I love Hotel Isabel!! It's right on the beach, quite, good base for all the other attractions around. There is parking in front of the hotel and the hotel can very easily be reached via public transport from the airport.
The buffet breakfast is great.
On my last trip, I didn't like the room I was given ( it was perfectly adequate but on the lower floor and no sea view) and because they didn't have another available I got a bottle of cava and was offered a move the next day but opted to stay as I was only there for two nights.

Having never been to Torremolinas before I was pleasently surprised by the Hotel isabel, we stayed for a week in October and although the summer rush was definately over there were still plenty of eating houses open an a lot of them around the hotel. The room itself was well kept and clean, we were at the back of the hotel with a view of the appartment blocks at the back however the best was the supermarket at the and of the back street which catered for all our needs.

The only let down was the hotel breakfast and the lack of any entertainmant whatsoever in the hotel at night.

Breakfast was a running gauntlet of seeing what wasnt available, it was either the orange juice, or bread for toast or tea, or cooked food, which eventually the severely hard worked staff got out from the kitchen, but i suppose with three staff members catering for twenty tables, the service is going to be a "bit rough" those gripes aside we had a great time, the hotel is right in the centre of things and across the road from the beach, would i visit the Hotel Isabel again, "Yes Definately" probably October 2013.

Room Tip: Ask for sea front room, rooms at the back look out on the appartment blocks and the bin men arent wo...

We booked this hotel for one next after getting off a cruise in malaga before returning home the next day. We arrived very early in the morning about 8am. We had 2 rooms booked and thankfully one room was ready. It was a clean and spacious room with a lovely sea view. there was one bed and then we got another one from one of the cleaning staff. I was expecting a sofa bed but it was actually a fairly decent bed with a proper mattress! the bathroom was very big and clean with a bathtub and a shower head attached to it. The next room was just across the corridor, the room was also very nice and had a view of the street, a little disappointing but oh well! thinking they were the same rooms we were shocked to find it had a jacuzzi shower! it was lovely although did leak at the bottom. Overall i thought this was a nice, clean hotel that is perfect for short stays. I would stay here again. They offer free wifi also which was a great touch.
