“Barracuda hotel toremolinos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Spent 10 days half board March 2012 with my wife. Must say we enjoyed our stay and would return. Room was basic but clean. We were on the dark side of the moon. It appears to be predominantly a hotel for Spanish pensioners, who get the sunny side rooms. If you want to move from the dark side, the premium is quite high. Never mind the room is mainly a place to lay your head. The biggest problem with the room was the TV reception, crap, wife kept falling out with me cause she couldn't watch East Benders etc. Staff were 1st class, meals were OK and they had a happy hour in the bar. Overall I would recommend if you want beach front, close to shops, bars and marina and aren't looking for more than 3 star hotel.

Room Tip: Check for room overlooking the pool. They get the sun.

stayed for one week end september and after reading previous reviews was not looking forward to arriving at this hotel. Hotel is basic but clean and spacious rooms if all you are looking for is a bed, shower and good nights sleep. staff friendly and breakfast sufficient.

On Arrival to the room 3 out of 4 lights not working...... 1 was faulty wiring. The room was VERY tired and in need of decoration. The carpet smelt old and was dirty under foot. One of the bed bases was broken. We were put into a family room when only 3 beds were required and looked nothing like the room on the website for three people. The bathroom was clean although chipped tiles and rusted radiator. There was no fire alarm/sprinkle in the room. When asked is we could have a room with a better view was told 6.00 euros per person per night extra although the Hotel was only 1/3 full !!! Breakfast was bril as were the waiting staff. Overall a poor hotel and would not recommend or return.

Room Tip: choose another hotel ........................................

We stayed here recently for 3 nights and found it excellent value for money, We arrived at 7.30pm and after a speedy check-in went straight for dinner. We had booked half board and for the price we paid thought the hotel was great, brilliant location on the beach, walkable distance to Benalmedena and Torremelinos. Room was spacious and clean. Lots of bars and restaurants very close by, twice we had lunch instead of dinner as it was so cheap to eat out. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived at 12 midday to be greeted by some young one who just stood there playing with her hair rather than ask was I ok. Then a middle aged lady look at me and asked was I ok I replied I wanted to check in. Just said passport took them then came back and said 40 min room ready and walked away. Like someone else said this hotel has no interest in you unless your Spanish.
The room was very dated but was ok just to sleep in. I got a carpark view. But it was ok I was on the 7th floor. I wouldn't return or recommend this place to anyone. Breakfast was ok not a great selection. I'd say pay extra money to stay somewhere else

located very close to Benalabina marina. through the garden and onto promenade, great location.

Hotel is now dated , catering for spanish holidays in the main, couldn't find a uk comapny promoting it.

Rooms traditional spanish wood but getting a run down look. Shower head broken and curtains needed some repair ( very old noisy air con. Always kept clean though and for the price it's reasonable.

Food was good in the morning ( only B&B). it is its position that makes it.

Room Tip: need to be high up as the entertainment went on until 11, and was loud.

I stayed at the La Barracuda hotel last week for four nights. I read the reviews on trip advisor and felt it was a safe bet. How wrong was I, we checked in very early and was asked to come in an hour, nearly two hours later our room was not ready and we waited at reception and were given the keys to room 316. The smell of cigarette smoke in the room/hallway was appalling. The room was appalling it was scant of any comfort at all. The room was badly decorated if at all. It had three single beds that were better described as cots! I complained that this room would not do and had to pay another €60 for an adequate room on the third floor. This room had a view of sea which I had paid for initially. The original room had a view of the car park, hotel across the road and if you stood on the balcony you could see the sea. Staff in the hotel are pleasant, polite and helpful apart from the young girl with long black hair at reception. The price of the hotel was extortionate even for August. I paid about €500 for 4 nights and ii never used the restaurant once. 706 was spotless and Eva the housekeeper was very efficient. Wifi was annoying it was slow and you had to keep entering the password.

Room Tip: Pool side, if any!
