“Good but could be excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Fantastic food, excellent staff and great location for the beach. We went for a friends 40th and were greeted with champagne on arrival which was a lovely touch. Was perfect for what we wanted which was a relaxing break, close to the beach. We had rooms with seperate lounge area which was great for getting ready. Negatives: Sun loungers really hard could do with some type of mattress. Also beds in rooms were very hard. Also, I wouldn't book it for a family holiday for myself personally as there wasnt really a snack bar for children to get ice creams or snacks from which I have never known before for an all inclusive hotel. If you weren't into bread rolls with a bit of ham and cheese then you would have to go to the restaurant for lunch and have an ice cream then which sometimes is a bit inconvenient. Also everything seems to finish in the day very early, the pool closes at 6pm and so does the outside bar and dinner finishes at 8.45 which again is not something I have experienced before on AI its usually much later. The outside bar during the day seems very isolated its a shame that that it is not opened up a bit more and instead of having sun loungers on the raised area, it would be nice to have more tables and chairs that are in the sun and not always shaded. But if you don't want ice-creams on tap and the usual snacks available in the day then this is a lovely choice of hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms 432 to 422 have the sun on the balcony all day and have a great view of the beach but they are...

Just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel and had a fantastic time.
First the negatives, and I am really being picky with these I know:
I would agree with the comments about the beds being hard, however, I am sure that if we used our tongues and asked the staff they would find some way of accommodating this. I had trouble sleeping with one pillow so used a blanket from one of the cupboards to bolster it up. The next day I had a brand new pillow to go with my original one without asking.
The toilets could be more plentiful but there are lifts to each floor and every bedroom has a toilet.
Lack of free wifi seems common around the area, but not much of a problem surely? Very cheap.
There was no fitness room/gym at the hotel, however it would depend on the clientele being targeted here, most of the older guests may not have used it and the children would not be allowed but an option would have been nice.
Now the positives:
The food was magnificent. Anyone of any age who could not find something delicious, varied and plentiful here could not have been looking properly. However picky kids can be, there was always something for anyone, and the ice cream at meal times was unlimited! Always superb quality and loads.
The hotel staff are top quality. All without exception could not do enough for any guests from the receptionists, to the bar staff, the restaurant staff, the cleaners, all of them were superb. The lifeguard controlled any wayward behaviour quietly, calmly and effectively so that other guests were not disturbed. The managers had a quiet assurance and controlled a very efficient place with ease and poise.
Sunbeds were not supposed to be reserved but the usual pointless rush to do this at 5 am did occur, however, there were always sunbeds available.
All in all we were very sad to leave and would not hesitate recommending this hotel. Thank you all for a fantastic time.

When we arrived we where handed a glass of wine or orange juice the foods where lovely can clean the couch was not the best the food was never the same a great choice for everyone the bar-staff Were pleasant and were quick at serving.
The location is not bad it's a 20 mins walk into the town centre not far from the train station it is not expensive to travel on the train.
The weather wasn't the best but we still had a wonderful holiday.
We are going back in October.

We were unsure what to expect with going to Torremolinos - all friends seemed to pull a face as if to say we must be mad.

Actually it was absolutely brilliant, the area of La Colina was excellent and well maintained and the Hotel was fantastic. The food was exceptionally good and varied with plenty of choice for adults and children. The whole place was spotless and the rooms were especially good, especially with having children, who were able to sleep in the separate lounge area, keeping out bedroom clear. The children enjoyed it so much that they are begging us to return next year.

Room Tip: All rooms were generally good, but we were on the 3rd floor(of 4) and farthest away from the recepti...
