Stayed for a week at this hotel first week in February 2013. Good points are plentiful- here's a summary-
Very close to the airport but little or no aircraft noise.
Good choice of food and drink and meal times are generous-breakfast 8:00 until 10:30, lunch 13:00 until 15:00 and dinner two sittings 18:00 or 19:45 (your choice).
Friendly staff at both bar and reception.
Tea,coffee,beer and soft drinks available self-service as well as at the bar.
Close to the beach with newspaper shop,pharmacist and mini-supermarket across the road.
Nice rooms with decent balcony sunny all day ( we stayed in room 512 but all in that block are just as good.)
ITV,BBC1 and Channel 4 on the room TV if you want it.
Quiet in the rooms at night-people respect the requirement to be quiet after 11pm.
Very international clientele-lots of French,Dutch and German guests.
It's a bit far to walk to the centre of Torremolinos if you are not used to walking long distances.
Allow at least an hour to get to the main street and twenty minutes to the train station.Saying all that, it's a very pleasant walk along the seaside promenade so we enjoyed it greatly-especially stopping en route for coffee and brandy at one of several chiringuitos.
Overall- we liked the place a lot and would use the hotel again. In fact we may go back this November with friends.Lots of people we met had been more than once to this hotel which speaks for itself.
