“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at these apartments. We have stayed in many other hotels and aptms. over the years in Torremolinos, but for value and location they are more than adequate. There is excellent entertainment nightly. Ok, the rooms are a bit tatty, but the most important part - the bathroom is very well equiped indeed, even a heated towel rail. If you like to do a little self catering, the facilities are not great, but more than adequate to cook breakfast. Just to be warned there are no extras whatsoever in these apartments, l would suggest packing a few basics like shower gel, shampoo etc. also a few kitchen items like jeyes cloth , s & p , sugar, tea bags and small coffee, a small container of wash up liquid, it would save buying big containers when you dont need them. Another thing there are no clothes lines or anywhere to dry a few items, so a few pegs and a bit of twine wouldn't go astray. Breakfast while we were there was €8.00 per person, this can be expensive if you are staying the week. We took some groceries and it worked out perfectly. We would definitely return.

The Bajondillo apartments are starting to look a bit dated. Don't look to stay here if you plan to do your own holiday catering over and above a cup of tea and a boiled egg or if you require luxury. If what you are looking for is a relatively low-cost room which is in a good location then this may well fit the bill.

The hotel is right by the sea-front and very close to the lift which goes up to Torremolinos town center. It has a decent bar/cafe and parking within the hotel grounds and outside on the road. There are numerous bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The staff I encountered were all friendly, the public and private areas relatively clean and the free wifi worked well.

All-in-all, OK for the price.

Room Tip: The hotel is quite large. All rooms are sea view, albeit most at an angle, but choose between mornin...

The bajondillo apartments are basic but the lovely sea views make up for it. Although we didn't make full use of the facilities, there is entertainment on every night in one form or another. The staff are really friendly and helpful. This is our second time to these apartments and we will more than likely go back again. There is a lovely bakery across the road for fresh bread every morning and a newsagent around the corner on the beach front. Around the corner opposite the ship inn is a really good chicken cafe, where the waitress is really friendly. Another place to eat is a really good chinese restaurant about a 10 minute walk along the beach front just past the hotel jazmines. There is a lift up into the town, where you can easily catch a bus or train to anywhere. We travelled to puerto banus by catching a train to Fuengirola then a bus to marbella and then another to puerto banus to see how the other half live. A bus to Mijas is also really enjoyable. Enjoy.

Clean, friendly and a very good location.
Rooms are dated and in need of modernisation and the kitchenette is not suitable for your needs if you we're to go fully self catering. There is NO kettle in your room for the cup of tea/coffee.
There was entertainment every night and the guests were always up dancing to the the numerous musicians. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and we would recommend the Europa Bistro & Bar Maddison for that extra bit of customer service.

We stayed at the hotel for the second week of the Easter holidays, and were delighted with it, especially for the cost (45 Euro for 2 people per night). We were on the 9th floor with a magnificent view towards Malaga that we didn't tire of the whole week.

The room was spotless, and cleaned every day, with new towels and bedding at least twice in the week. The bathroom was excellent, and so clean. We liked having a small kitchen area (yes it is small), but with 2 rings to cook on, a cupboard with all we could need for 2 people, and a fridge, we were able to enjoy breakfast on our balcony and pre dinner drinks and made a couple of lunches too.

The furniture is not modern/contemporary, it's older and very typically Spanish, which we found charming rather than something to complain about. The beds were very comfortable (and we were given extra pillows on request with no problem), the room was very big compared to many (with a small dining room table, 2 chairs, also 2 armchairs) and there were chairs and a table (with table cloth) on the balcony. Yes the TV is small, but to be honest, who goes to Spain to watch TV! We put on Sky news a few times, and the radio channels, but were more than happy with that. Huge wardrobe, with loads of hangers, and a chest of drawers. Also loads more storage in the large sideboard.

The cleaners around the hotel are constantly cleaning the public areas, toilets, etc. so the whole hotel is spotless. We couldn't even find a finger print on a pane of glass!

The staff were very helpful and the shuttle taxi to and from the airport was a great bonus.

Lovely pool area, which has a lifeguard, and although it was too cold in the pool to use it, we made use of the loungers to sit and read and enjoy the sun.

There are lovely gardens, beautifully kept, surrounding the hotel, including a pond/stream with water flowing and a little bridge. Worth finding to sit quietly!

We didn't eat in the hotel, nor use the bar, as we had friends staying nearby and we spent our evenings with them trying different restaurants.

The hotel is in an excellent location, right opposite the beach, with a quiet street in front of it. Lovely sidewalks/pavements all along the coast - we walked all the way to Malaga in one direction and Benalmedena in the other (well worth a visit at night, when the stunning marina is beautiful). Cafe's, bars, beautifully kept beaches/with loungers all along the beach. All kept spotless. To get up into the main street of the town (San Miguel), just walk out from back of hotel, up to the top of the street, then turn left for 100 yards, and you'll see signs for the lift up (it costs 50 cents) to save the "steps". Saves the walk up the steps, although they are also charming with bars and stalls all along so you don't notice the walk. Maybe people who commented about the long walk up didn't find the lift, but it's within 2 minutes of the hotel.

We enjoyed staying at the hotel so much that we've booked again for October. No, it's not the Ritz, nor is it a boutique hotel, nor is it furnished in standard Ikea style! It's Spanish and proud to be! It was perfect for us (in our 50s) and we didn't see any children there while we were there, so the clientele do seem to be older. On the day we left however, several hen and stag parties arrived from Britain and Ireland and we were glad to be leaving! We didn't meet any other English guests, most seem to be from Scandinavia, France and Germany.

If you want a stunning view towards the mountains and Malaga, ask for a room looking towards Malaga - but these rooms don't get afternoon sun (ideal if you want to keep cool). They get the morning sun so lovely to eat breakfast on the balcony.

Trips out: Mijas (about 1 euro on the bus from the top of San Miguel), lovely mountain village; walk along to Benalmedena; restaurants in the older Spanish part of town - loved "La Cacerola" run by Tim, which is tiny but so friendly, atmospheric and with steaks and ribs to die for cooked in the tiniest kitchen I've ever seen!!

Room Tip: If you want afternoon sun, you won't get the stunning views, but you'll be able to sunbathe...

This place it is so old as the people retired here fom GB, DE, NL.! No renewing but considering is clean. Reception people nice, internet free in the room, and just over the road is the sea. To get in the center you have to climb a hill.
Peole refering to this place as "super" didn't see better hotels/ appartments. I gues that for the price you won't find better in Europe.
