“Little, hilly town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

There are lots of steps/hills up to the shops. You'll find classic souvenir shops, leather shops, jewellers, shoe shops, ice cream parlours...even a poundland, or euroland I suppose. There's of course San Miguel Street where some of the bars are, but if you're looking for a good night out then carry on down to Benalmadena.

“Boring...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Went with my partner for 5 nights but unless you explore few places outside torremolinos I think many people would find it boring. Don't know if my expectations were just too high as I'm not too fussy but after 2 days I just wanted to come home. Senior people might enjoy it more. Nice people but wouldn't return.

“Ok for couples”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Plenty of places to eat and drink but nothing lively. Hardly any entertainment unless youre happy with run of the mill singers and tribute acts! Was nice to get away for a few days but was getting bored by the end of it so dont think we would go back. Our son wouldve been very bored if he had come as theres not much for the kids to do unless you pay to go on trips.

“lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Loads of shops, cafes and bars, people friendly, would recommend to anyone. Restaurants are not too expensive with a lot of different choices of foods. Icecream shops and frozen yogurt are really nice. Good supermarket if you are self catering. Lovely beach which stretches for moles.

“Saint Johns Day JUNE23rd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

While on holiday, The locals told us about this event which takes place on the beach,
On the night of 23rd. All the local people go onto the beach and have a dip in the sea between 11 and 12 pm for good luck and good fortune ,with fires all along the beach and family's and friends, and communities. All having parties. Followed at midnight by a Fireworks display.
This was a great sight and we were very welcome to join in with the festivities. We walked along the beach for a mile or two paddling in the sea at midnight. It was a great night and FREE.
If you are here at this time well worth a visit.
