I read reports about this hotel before travelling and was concerned what I would be met with.
Firstly, and the only negative, the reception is part-time and there was no-one there to welcome us when we arrived. We had to get keys from a wall safe and find our own way to our room. Not a good start.
HOWEVER - the hotel is small, spotlessly clean throughout - stairways, poolside, garden area, bar area - everywhere.
Our apartment was very clean too and comfortably furnished. Our beds seemed to have new mattresses - other guests said theirs were 'springy'. Two balconies with good views, furniture and a clothes dryer.
Inside the apartment, adequate furnishings - somewhat dated TV -plenty of hanging space for clothes, extra pillows, bedding and enough towels (not very fluffy). T^he kitchen was a let down - the freezer door of the fridge didn't close properly so it did not freeze properly. Too much wasted space in the kitchen where it would be easy to fit an oven and more cupboards.
Adequate cutlery. pots etc.
The staff were very helpful, English speaking - nothing was too much trouble.
The diner/bar is run separately and on the occasions we ate there the food was excellent and good value for money, esp. the BBQs The staff there were also helpful.
Wifi is available in the reception and the bar - you have to ask for codes.
The whole hotel is quiet and in a peaceful location. It is uphill at the end of the return journey. We overcame this by walking along the flat towards the station and then going up the stairs to the front of the hotel. Anyway, it's not that bad.
The swimming pool area and garden are lovely, quiet and a great place to relax, with the bar close for drinks, snacks and dinners/breakfasts.
It's handy for the train station and train travel is cheap. Press the flags on the bottom left corner and the display is in English. Don't bother with transfers from the airport - the train is opposite and it costs about 2 Euros single for Torremolinos. There are other destinations available using this train.
The room was serviced every Wednesday and Saturday.
