Stayed for 2 days. I was in Spain for a Champions League match and decided to stay here. I try and book a different hotel every time I visit Torremolinos. Reception area was clean, white marble everywhere, gave the impression that it was a small hotel. Check- in was fine. Hotel is in a good location, next to the beach. Plenty of other hotels, bars, restaurants nearby. All rooms have a side sea view. Elevators are very small. Bedroom was OK, clean, bathroom was OK. Rooms could do with being modernized. The bedroom carpets and the hall carpets, while they were clean, are well past their sell by date.
Restaurant. To be fair - the half board deals were very cheap and excellent value. Breakfast both mornings was fine. Small choice, but edible. I had dinner on one evening, and it was OK.
Soup , salad bar, 3 hot choices of main course and desserts. Staff were nice. Wine at €8 was reasonable. The guests were all lovely people.
Had a beer in the downstairs bar, again, staff were efficient and pleasant.
If the owners invested now it would pay off, as the other nearby hotels ( Riu Nautilus & Sol Aloha Puerto) are beautiful.
Would I stay again, yes I would. Would I bring my wife here to this hotel, no. The surrounding hotels are far superior. Its clean, its great value, but needs TLC.
