“Very nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stayed at hotel Amaragua with a large group, but the hotel staff treated us individuals. The hotel was clean and any problem told to the reception was fixed at once. Only the beach promenade is between the hotel and the beach, and there is a nice outdoor pool with sun beds too. The food was good and it was lots of it. The really negative factor was the wi fi; it did not reach the rooms and even in the reception area it worked very slowly. A nice walk fra Medalbina to Torremolinos along the beach, and easy to go by local bus to Malaga, Fuengirola or Mijas.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side hav sunon their balconies all the afternoon.

Travelling on my own, I have come to expect porter service in hotels, unfortunately there was none here, even though I asked for assistance with my bags. The rooms are spacious but a little tired, with stains on the cushions of the chairs. The public rooms are excellent and breakfast, even though buffet style was very good. More in keeping with older people than families. The location is excellent, right on the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room and higher twenties in number, then you will get a sea view.

we stayed here one week in February with the family. It was fully booked. Many Scandinavian retired people, hardly any children. Rooms with connecting doors are only on the street side. Most sea side rooms have only partial sea view. Full sea view is for suites.
There is a small covered pool, but under 16 only 10-11 and 16-17 h. Amazing that even in winter the outside chairs are reserved with towels. We had a frigo with a only a small bottle of water, not replaced. They are 1,5 euro, without indication.
Good points: location on the beach, breakfast (although we sometimes had to wait for a table), free wifi, free covered pool and yacuzzi.No filmnet, no coffee in room.

Room Tip: Rooms with connecting doors are only on the street side, north.

This was our second stay at the Amaragua. Location is excellent, staff are friendly, polite and efficient. Breakfast had just about everything you could wish for. Rooms are clean and spacious and as far as I could see all have some form of sea view. The bed was a bit on the hard side and there appeared to be some noise/vibration from the heating system (I presume it was the heating because it only appeared at night).The indoor pool is great on a chilly January afternoon.
A few grumbles! No tea/coffee in the room (standard for Spain), free wifi but a euro for 15 minutes if you have to use the hotel computer and a charge of 2 euros 75 cents per day to use the room safe. I wouldn't expect these to incur an extra charge in a four star hotel.
If the price was right I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: I would avoid the top floor. The heating noise appeared to come from the roof.

I stayed at the Amaragua in mid December 2012 for a long weekend. Was very lucky after being relocated there, due to the original booked hotel being closed. The location is ideal and close to everything. The foyer and the helpful person on the front desk certainly gave that good first impression, which set the tone for an enjoyable stay. The was spaceous and clean, and above all the staff were so helpful.

One gem was the Spa facilities that were all included in room price.

We stayed there mid November 2012.Although we were in the old section, everything we needed was there. Right on the beach although that was ot the time for swimming. WOULD BE OUTSTANDING IN THE SUMMER.We were extremely pleased with the staff, especially the front desk. All of those we had contact with spoke very good English and were easilyunderstood.Our stey included the buffet Breakfast and Dinner. The food was well presented and if you left not satisfied , it was your fault.
We would return there anytime

We stayed at the Amaragua Hotel the end of October 2012. The best part of the Hotel is the location. Do not expect personal service, the front desk while somewhat friendly does not speak english well, nor do they have time for anyone, they are extremly busy. The Hotel seems to cater to travel groups. But as said the location is very good, the rooms are small , not fancy but clean. The public areas are spacious and they offer piano music at night, which is very loveley. The pool area is also attractive and the price is not bad ( may even be very good, you need to check online ) because it includes a decent buffet breakfast served in a big noisy room.
