My husband and I have just returned from a lovely 7night break here . The hotel is a short journey either by Taxi - approx 20 -25 Euros from Malaga Airport or you can take train from airport to Torremolinos and then short taxi ride to hotel.
The hotel is situated 2 streets back from the seafront in Carihuela area of resort with back gate that takes you right to the shops and restaurants and beach in a minute. Having stayed at other hotels not too far away we found the staff here to be much more friendly and the rooms were kept extremely clean by the maids , we were inTwin Superior which had great sea views from the balcony , beds were a bit too firm for me but that is personal preference.
As it is a quieter time of the year you tend to find a lot of bars/restaurants take their holidays so we booked half board. Good choice of food at breakfast and also varied at dinner - there was always something you could have and the chefs were continually replacing items that were running out , great selection of sweets and the best fresh fruit salad I have ever had , staff in restaurant very friendly and seemed happy to be there. Did not experience any queuing for dinner and we were there over 2 national holidays, maybe we just chose a good time to eat.
We used the rof top solarium which was excellent with great beds, mattreses,superb views and a small bar where Leslie and her colleague kept us refreshed , think this will be very popular in the summer months and may have problems getting a bed if you are not up with the larks. The hotel also has a pool but did not use it. Had lunch in hotel one day and the pizza and pasta were lovely and reasonably priced. Happy hour in bar from 5-6pm everyday .
The general upkeep of the hotel is excellent and management were always around and visible which is not always the case and seemed friendly and approachable. Haing visited the coast once or even twice a year for the past 20 odd years we will definately going back to this hotel in the not too distant future. Thanks again.
Go for a room on the top floors and ask for a seaview - we had room 529 and this was perfect for us
