Had the pleasure of staying at this hotel from July 6th for one week.
Would return again without any doubt.
The location is superb, literally across the road from the beach. Peaceful area of Torremolinos.
Hotel reception and lounge areas are simply stunning. The whole complex is spotlessly clean, numerous pools to use, in total I counted 9. All extremely well maintained. Sunloungers available but there are a few sad people that 'reserve them with towels at early hours of the morning'
The reception staff are very welcoming and helpful especially Miguel who booked us in late evening and when asked recommended a fabulous local Spanish Resturant around the corner he did, its called Avendia. Well worth a meal at, authentic Spanish food.
We had 2rooms on the second floor of Sol Don Marco rooms 2032 &. 2034. Cleaned daily and to the high standard that is throughout this hotel. Clean sheets & towels daily, the shower is wonderful, walk in and plenty of hot water when needed. Ac worked well in room 2034 not so well in room 2032 but when reported to reception it was repaired the same day. Small balcony but enough for us, pool view. This room is located above the Resturant but I must say I expected to be disturbed by noise of meal preparation but didn't.
We stayed on a b&b basis. Breakfast was good. A huge selection from co,d meats
& cheeses, cereals, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast. The breads & pastries are cooked on the premises, really fab chilled champers on ice just finished the experience off. Can get rather busy at weekends but the resturant staff really work hard.
Reading the reviews re dress code in the evenings for meals I must add our experience, we intended to dine one evening as it smelt divine. However both my adult sons had shorts on, not beachwear shorts, tailored smart shorts that they were permitted to play on a luxurious golf course in and yet we were clearly told at the resturant door that one of my sons was not welcome to enter the dining room in them! Both boys had shirts on and the shorts are below the knee. We did find it old that only one of them although dressed the same, were turned away. Didn't affect our fantastic stay at this hotel as rules are rules but as people seem to be mentioning the lapse of the rules on here, I will contribute with our findings on this matter.
The hotel has a varied entertainments programme ranging from yoga, aqua aerobics and evening singers/bands. I am sure a lot more is on but we couldn't cram it all in one week.
Really impressed with this hotel and have already recommended to friends & family.
Ideal to explore Torremolinos especially the old town, shops, aquapark and of course the enjoyable evening stroll along the promenade right down to Benelmadena Marina.
Cannot wait to return
