Hotel was nice and clean, they did a room service every day and I liked to have ensuite bathroom and balcony. My room was overlooking street but I liked it anyway as there was sun in the afternoon which was pleasant in October. I missed some amnenities in the room like hair dryer, fridge, wifi (only in the lounge). Breakfast was fine but no fruits or vegetables. Location was very convenient, 5-10 minutes to the beach (which is btw great) and supermarket and 20 minutes to the centre of Torremolinos by walk. Malaga is easily accessable and there is a bus stop right next to the hotel. I also experienced a noise from lobby but overall feeling of the hotel was positive. You can have a nice relax in the garden or pool area. I preferred to stay on the beach, walk around or make trips (Gibraltar, Malaga). Night life was much better in Torremolinos (this part where hotel is located is called Montemar) but I visited the place in October so not during the main season and mostly met elder generation.

Just returned from a 7 night stay. Good first impression, nice pool and garden area although pool very small. Why people still hog sunbeds all day is beyond me.The Hotel is close ish to the beach. Bus stop right outside, very reliable and good value. As mentioned before by others, breakfast could be a bit more exciting, more choice would be good but it was ok. Our only real problem was the noise at night, the last one being the worst ever. Children running about, slamming doors and shouting until 3am. Luckily it was the last night as we couldn't stand another. Shame but we won't return.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool have less road noise but no sun at any time of day. Overlooking road have...

Myself and Viv have just returned from an 11 night stay, where do we begin?

First impressions were of a traditional Spanish hotel which was very clean. The room (304) was small, however had everything we needed, ie, bed, shower, balcony. Room was cleaned every day and towels changed. The balcony was small, but adequate. There was however an air conditioning unit on the wall, and it's only this and the balcony size which stopped us giving a 5* rating - although the air con was excellent and free of charge.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Most didn't speak fluent English, however this was no problem at all as they were all nice people. The bar was reasonably priced for a hotel and the spirit measures were generous, especially from the guy working the night shift :). Late at night he brought out the hotel's wee dog, who we nicknamed Choppers. He had a fetish for shoes and flip flops, but what a gorgeous wee friendly dog.

Breakfast was simple - usual continental fayre plus bacon on demand. Only problem was battling past Augustus Gloop at the bacon grill, boy could he pack it away!!!!!!

The gardens were fantastic, the smells were amazing and you could sit there peacefully morning, noon and night with a drink. The pool was small but clean and at times we had it to ourselves - it felt like we were in our own villa!!

Beach 5 minutes walk down La Avenida de Pumpida. It was beautiful. Sunbeds were so thick and comfy Viv slept better than at the hotel!!

Overall it's a great place to holiday with loads of places to eat and drink. We'll post some separate reviews on these. La Carihuela is great and Benalmadena and Torremolinos are within easy walking distance.

Hope this helps, bubaye for now

Viv and Rick

Just returned from 11 nights at this hotel and will definitely be going back. Have been going to Costa del Sol for 15 years now, at least 3 times a year,starting off in Benalmadena, but now always staying in the Carihuela area.Normally stay in El Tiburon in Summer but that hotel has changed hands so we decided to try Carmen Teresa.The hotel is spotless clean and the staff friendly. We only went by the pool once as prefer the beach but did not have trouble getting one of the 10 sunbeds.The gardens at the hotel are well kept and you can always sit there if you couldn't get a bed anyway. Breakfast is continental as this is a proper Spanish hotel, so the people who moan about the food are probably better off staying in England or going to a 'tacky' themed English bar (this is not what we go to Spain for!!!)

Room Tip: Stayed in 209 with pool view.

I can't fault the cleanliness or the beautiful garden of this Hotel. It was somewhat let down by the bar area and sometimes being made to feel as though being a Solo traveller isn't something that the staff seem used to. Noise can be an issue as doors slam and people arguing happens often especially at night. The maid was very friendly and I am very grateful to the staff. Breakfast was the same buffet everyday. I wasn't expecting a Full English or anything (not keen on them first thing) but a little variety would have been good. Free WiFi is available in the bar/lounge area. I would recommend this hotel to couples looking for a relaxing break.
