“Fab holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Travelled here in May 2014 with my husband and 2 grandchildren. Stayed 1 week all inclusive. Hotel room amazing and amazing views of the sea front. Large balcony. Was kept clean throughout the stay no complaints what so ever. Food was ok but not much choice for the children have had better and worse on all inclusive. Drinks nice and plenty of choice. Entertainment for the kids was good with a disco every night and activities both day and night. Overall was a nice relaxing week and the weather was fab. Grandchildren enjoyed it and made lots of friends. Only downside was having to pay for wi if but would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Facing beach front

I could not fault any part of the holiday. Excellent, helpful, friendly service, very clean, and good food with a selection of different dishes daily! Directly across the road is the beach. Rooms are spacious and clean. Definitely recommend this hotel, especially it's all inclusive package!

we have just stayed at this hotel for a 4 day break, what can i say, if you could get a sun bed around the pool you were very lucky, if you were prepaired to stand there in the morning and que to get a bed ( which we weren't gonna do) so we spend everyday at the beach, without being surrounded by loads of people.....we were all inclusive as well which was ok, the food wasn't to bad i suppose, but the dinning room isn't big enough for such a large hotel, specially as yesterday there was people queing up outside to get in for their dinner...the entertainment left a lot to be desired as well, the kiddies who were there enjoyed it, even the adults too, but i'm sorry but these 4 adults didn't!!!!!
also we had paid for a superior room with 4 beds (regardles of the fact we were two couples in a seperate room) it was the 4 bedded room we actually were told we would have!
well the shower in one room wasn't even attached to the wall, so was hand held but then fixed up with string, and that was my cousin who did than themselves...this is suppose to be a 4 star hotel....we recon you need to knock a couple of those off....and the exchange rate in the hotel was shocking as well £1 = 1 euro, the food from the snack bar was nice, kept you going until dinner time. cocktails were nice as well...
well everyone has their own views on hotels, food ect ect, well sorry to say this one wasn't as good as we expected, the one good thing we did have was a lovely view from our rooms of the beach, we were on the 5th floor, and they have nice large balconies as well, and inspite of what i have written in this review we did have a nice break, and a good laugh!

Room Tip: ask for the room over looking the beach, its much quieter.....higher the better.....

Stayed here in early July 2014 with my wife and teenaged son. We had a comfortable room with 2 double beds, facing away from the pool so it was nice and quiet. Food was excellent with a wide variety. We tried everything and it was really good. Pool bar and snack bar is great and staff are very friendly. Restaurant gets busy around 8pm so get there early. The hotel is situated a short bus ride from Torremolinos Town Centre so it is quieter than other hotels.

Room Tip: We had a room that was facing away from the pool so it was nice and quiet.

Had 7 nights 11th-18th July. Perfect family hotel. Great food and plenty of choice (I am the worlds fussiest eater).
Ok, we paid for superior room and ended up with a normal room asked about it and was told they are all full. There was enough room (had 2 little ones) so this was not gonna spoil our holiday. I have asked the holiday company to refund me the difference on the rooms. The room was cleaned every day and the view was amazing from the balcony.
Pools were great, entertainment was perfect for the kids. Staff was very friendly and great with my kids. Plenty of food on offer when restaurant was not open.
Adult games as well. Only 10 minutes from airport. Beach just across the road and perfect. Few shops and restaurants nearby 5-10 minutes walk.
Don't compare 4star in England to 4star in Spain. Apart from the room mix up there is nothing wrong with this place at all. It is a big hotel so it would be hard to please everyone. surely if it's busy, it must be a good hotel.
I would definitely go back here again.

Booked as a last minute break due to finding out that we are having a baby!
Requested a high room with sea view and got just that!! :) The room was spacious, cleaned every day & had a little fridge (perfect for water or the odd bit of food). Stayed at the hotel all inclusive for 5 days with my partner & can honestly say we had a fantastic holiday! There is a large swimming pool which had ample sunloungers (would need to get up before breckie to get one though-about 8:30ish) a kids pool & a quieter pool around the other side. Animation team were great during the day getting the kids up and involved & aqua aerobix was on every lunch time... loud music was played around the main pool which was a bonus. The snack bar outside is a great feature.. chicken keebabs..chips..burgers..hotdogs & toasties basically served until 7pm at night. The main outside bar also did pizzas as part of the allinclusive. I wasnt drinking alcohol due to being pregnant but the bar caters for everyone..i had mocktails and 0% larger which i thought was quite unusual but a great perk... my partner said the san miguel on draft was great and the allinclusive soft drinks were the likes of fanta,coke & sprite...kids will love the ice cold milkshake machine and endless supply of slush aswell as little pots of ice cream, ice pops, ice lollys & small spanish versions of magnums. The resteraunt was good-always something to eat...please dont listen to the negative reviews!!
The hotel is located right on the beach which was lovely as there seemed to always be a nice breeze
..the resort & hotel was spotless... lots of little shops n cafes down the front & the beach was great! Dont get a transfer from malaga airport it is 20euro in a cab & much quicker... We loved this hotel & are hoping to return next year with the kids!! :) xxx

Me and my partner always travel all inclusive as we like to watch the evening entrainment whilst having a few drinks, the hotel in General is very very nice and clean. All the staff are great and pleasant, which so far is a good start, however the only think stopping me from giving it 5 stars are the rooms. All of the hotel I would say is fairly modern, except the rooms, i don't think they have been updated since the 90s. Old box TV on the wall, kitchen is old. Basically the rooms need a facelift! Surprisingly the bathroom was nice, all tiled and quite trendy which didn't fit with the other rooms!
The food in general was nice, everywhere I have been I do not like the breakfast as to be fair it's not great, cheap local bacon and sausages which the Spanish refer to as English Sausages which is an insult as they are not!!!! Talk about making us look bad!! There was a wide variety of food for lunch and dinner including at least one meat pasta chips veg etc and it was nice.
When lunch and tea was closed there would be a little poolside hut/bar where one single man would stand in there over a grill and cook chicken, make toasted hot dogs etc all day long bless when the weather was 30 degrees, he always smiled!!! It's free for all inclusive members and you can go up when you want! Otherwise it's 4.50 Euors I think per time. I ended up tipping him as he would literally have 10 orders on the go and got everyone perfect every time.
The hotel is a 10 second walk from the beach which is lovely, loads of water sport activities.
The entertainment was ok, not the best but ok. Not as good as the Thomas Cook entertainment teams I have seen in the past.
I would recommend this hotel to you with kids/ younger couples and maybe even older couples. The shops and restaurants are a 10 minute walk, literally come out of the hotel and turn right and keep walking!

Also they state they have 2 wifi zones, the free one surprisingly doesn't work but the one you have to pay for does, I found myself having to go to a local bar to read my work emails etc every night after tea.
