Just returned - 3rd. Feb. after a weeks stay.
The value for money is exceptional. The location, right on the beach is perfect and it is in a quieter part of Torremolinos. If you want a busy night life outside the hotel - its not for you.You could not fault the food - a great variety with special a themed meal every night.
The staff could not be more helpful and seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
Just a point to note- I would say that the hotel would not suit the younger element. In fact I guess the average age when we were there was approaching 65 / 70.
All inclusive is always a bonus and we made best use of it.
We were allocated a room on the 9th floor - amazing views of the beach ,seafront,Torremolinos and the mountains- sun on the balcony all day.
Although the room was sold as a side sea view, they are all angled towards the sea. There are 2 blocks around the pool, In the 5 storey block, ask for floors 3/ 4/ or 5.
In the 9 story b lock ask for floors 7 / 8 or 9 - for best views. Although the hotel was full, there are no problems in finding a lounger around the pool.
It there was a downside, it was the evening shows. Considering there is no alternative outside in the evening, it was the only thing to do, The standard was very amateurish and the room quite small so there was always a problem in seating. Also I found the beds a little firm.
This is only a minor complaint however.
There is a bus stop outside the hotel to take you into the centre and the train station - called COLLINOS, is about a 10 to 15 min .walk. Both very cheap.
Will return without fail.
