“Brilliant for the price you pay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We booked for a 3 night stay with 4 in the party.
The hotel is 20 euros fromt he airport and to say the location is brilliant is an understatement.
Yards from the beach with plenty f bars/restaurants/cafes around in walking distance.
We walked around the promenade to the other side of the rock and walked straight in to the best bar in Torremolinos El Gato. The food is amazing and the staff are only too happy to help.
The rooms were basic, but you had a bed, bathroom and aircon! What do you need a TV for when you're on holiday? We only showered and slept in the rooms.
the only downside is that that walls and doors are pretty thin. Even turning the key int he door can be heard, but when you pay such low prices fr a great place i can live with that as the only down fall.
Overall a really good base for a holiday right on the beach.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the front for the sea view, but if you're a light sleeper and go to bed early...

This place is exactly what i needed. fantastic value for money and really nice staff. the owner and his wife were really helpful and kind.
The room was basic. me and my girlfriend got the room at the back with a frosted glass window towards a small inner courtyard. we didn't really need more than that as we were only there to sleep and relax after the beach. it was nice and quiet. bathroom was big enough and well equipped. furniture was a bit dated but functional. plenty of storage space + a safe. had a tv but we never switched it on. Also the air conditioning was such a useful bonus. The cleaning was really good, done daily. Towels got changed either daily or when the used ones were dirty.
The position was the best. Almost next to the beach, right between torremolinos and benalmadena. we got the train from the airport. the hotel is about 10-15 min downhill walk from torremolinos train station. that was handy as we also went on a little day trip to Malaga. busses are cheap too, we took one to Marbella.
As for places to go out you are spoilt for choice. lots of food places and bars. not a lot of clubs though but you can easily go for a stroll on a mission to find one.

This hotel is was definitely worth more that what i paid for it. A great base to explore Costa del Sol.

We requested a front room view when we booked last november but when we checked in we were given a small back room with frosted glass in the window, i went to reception and was told we booked too late for a front room(how early do you need to book) On the upside the staff were nice and the cleaning lady done a great job. Tried it because it was cheap but would not go back.

Room Tip: Get room at front

Travelled last week for a short stay with a group of friends. Hotel basic but spotlessly clean. Superb location for La Carihuela beach or a stroll down the prom. Would stay again but ask for a front facing room. Staff very friendly and efficient. The outside seating area is very pleasant to people watch and enjoy a drink. If you are on a budget, this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have a lovely view

Eight of us recently stayed at the Cabello for a 2 night break. We chose the hotel because of its location and good price. The hotel was perfect for us, located just off the prom behind la Carihuela beach. Everything was located within a very short distance to the hotel - the beach and plenty of good bars and restaurants.
The Cabello is a small traditional Spanish hotel: the rooms aren't luxurious, but are spotlessly clean and equipped with everything needed for a break in the sun, including air conditioning. There are tables and chairs on the terrace outside the hotel, a perfect place to eat breakfast or for a drink at any time of day.
The staff were friendly and welcoming, and provided excellent service.
We were a group of 8 women, we each had a great stay at the Cabello and would recommend to others.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have a lovely view of the square and beach.
