“Not a great place at all”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We recently had a short 4 day stay in September at the Torre de la Roca.We were put in apartment 501 which turned out to be a terrible place.It was fairly shabby and looked like it had been furnished from charity shops or flea markets.The refrigerator was really noisy,the curtains didn't close properly,and none of the closet doors did either.The air-conditioner only cooled the living room and the bedroom was hot for sleeping.Now we get to the bad part.The couple next door in 502 were night owls.Every night between midnight and 1 am they stomped around talking at the top of their lungs until they went out for the evening.We got woke up every night like this.We tried to talk to three different desk clerks at the front desk,about maybe changing rooms,but they couldn't care less and all of a sudden couldn't comprehend english.We checked out the next day and found another hotel.The bottom line is there are better places than this in Torremolinos and area to stay at.

Room Tip: If you insist on staying here refuse room 501.The couple in room 502 will wake you up every night be...

We stayed here for 5 nights in October, and this was our experience;

- fridge rattled loudly, had to be turned off overnight
- stove timer ticked non-stop and could not be turned off
- furniture was old, no doors closed
- no locks on the patio doors
- only living room is air conditioned, bedroom is hot
- wind whistles thru the windows at night
- noisy neighbors kept us awake well past midnight, we mentioned this to three different desk clerks, none of them were concerned, and would not let us change rooms.

The only good points were, maid service, washing machine in the room, and free wifi in the lounge.

All in all, not a good experience

I have been staying at Torre de la Roca each year since 2003 and have always been happy with each of the apartments I stayed in. The views from the balcony are wonderful and each apartment is different, yet very nice. Maid service includes light dusting each day, (except Sunday), and bedding is changed once a week. The apartments are nice for up to three persons. The dining room in the main hall is good, and excellent food, although somewhat limited, and a bar is available until late evening. The pool outside is very large, but not heated. Nice grounds to sit and enjoy view or friends.

The location is good, very easy to get to all places, the Market, the Tourist Area, and the train which you can take to the Airport for less than 2 euros. Malaga, a wonderful city is close by and many tourist excursions available to Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Gilbraltor, and other areas in Andalucia.

A nice place to stay...

Have friends who have been here for many years, most of the apartments are privately owned and there is a club feeling to the place.

About half of the 160 apartments are perminant homes so again a real community spirit, Some are very luxury indeed but the rented ones are basic but clean and tidy. Have been in many of the privately owned apartments and they have views to die for. All of the facilities are very good indeed with one of the best pools on the coast.

La Roca sits in the best location on the Costa del Sol so if you can make it then do try it as it is a little gem. We are going back this year on 2 occasions and have rented a private apartment which we have seen already.
