“Half Term Break with Grand-daughter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a good week at the hotel. We had an extra bed in our room which limited space but it was fine. We paid 20 euros for water, beer and a few soft drinks and this meant the fridge was available for us to use. Pool towels are free - they just charge a deposit onto your room and then deduct it when you hand them back. The pool is fine and we never had problems getting seats there. Absolutely spotless rooms and all the staff were great. Very friendly and very helpful. Breakfast got a little bit repetitive but it was fine overall. Fruit was always lovely and there was plenty of choice. Beds were comfortable - only thing was the sound proofing but that seems to be a problem in this type of building. Luckily there were not a lot of noisy guests.

Just back from 9 days at the Hotel Isabel and both my husband and I could not find a fault with anything at the hotel. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned every single day and even the girls doing the cleaning were lovely. The whole place was absolutely spotless and the service was second to none. We would highly recommend for anyone that wants to get away for a peaceful and tranquil break. Pay that extra bit for the sea view you will not be disappointed. The location is ideally situated on the beach front and walking distance to the town centre. Lovely pubs and restaurants in walking distance aswell. Tudor Rose restaurant just around the corner for breakfast and dinner and Kennedys bar for nightly entertainment. We would definitely stay her again.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the sea view!!!!!!!

It is very important for us that you emphasize the cleanliness and the staff of our hotel. Two very important aspects for us. I totally agree with you that it is worth paying extra for ocean front rooms with spectacular views although many of the standard rooms also have wonderful views.

Just returned from short break at the Isabel and couldn't fault anything, we paid extra for full sea view which was well worth it.

Hotel was spotlessly clean and staff very cheerful and helpful, located on beach in quiet end of town with local bars and restaurants but a pleasant ten min stroll into the main town.

Pool area slightly small but this is a small hotel and never had problem getting a comfortable lounger and the free pool towels were a bonus and never seen any beds "reserved"
.
The only very small disappointment was the charge for the fridge which I feel a hotel of this standard should include however this is a excellent hotel and would recommend to anyone looking for relaxed holiday in pleasant clean surroundings in quiet area but close to town and beach.

Room Tip: Sea view room worth the extra.

Sitting on the balcony with the sea breeze watching the sunset was heavenly. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Everything we could have wanted was within a short walk. We would here stay again. Opening the door to the balcony shuts off the air conditioner, which is a reasonable conservation feature, but unexpected by Californians. There are added charges for pool towels and a key to activate the room safe.

I hope you come back to visit as you commented Thanks for highlighting aspects of energy saving air conditioning as they are very important to us. I do not understand your remarks about a charge for pool towels as they are free to our customers.

We booked a room at this hotel bacause of the good reviews on Trip Advisor and Booking.com. We regreted our choice. The room was very small and the breakfast very low quality comparing with other 4-star hotels in Spain and the price was highet. But I apreciated the people working there, very kind and helpful.

Sorry that you do not agree with most of the comments from our customers on the Internet. I totally respect your that you consider the hotel is expensive because its you’re your opinion but what I do disagree with is your comment that the breakfast is poor quality. All the products we have are national or international leading brands. Thanks for highlighting our staff.

Lovely clean hotel with nice friendly staff - who try hard to please.
Food was excellent and there was a very pleasant atmosphere in the hotel.
Some rooms are a little small but an upgrade can be got for a small fee.
Very central - you can walk everywhere from there ==> bars restaurants, beach etc
Mostly =I think the staff made the place - they even made an "Irish Fry" if requested?
This place is as good as it gets in Torremolinos.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade from basic - its worth it
