“Avoid this hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Booked for 3 nights November , heating wasn't working manager said engineer was working on it. Went to reception later to see if it was gonna be fixed told by receptionist a engineer would be out tomorrow, So nothing but lies from staff.we moved out as it was cold n dirty. A disgusting place should be shut down. Avoid if you want a good holiday.

My wife and I have just returned from a ten night stay at this superb small and friendly hotel,Ican concur with the vast majority of reviews value for money modern and clean/no need to worry about carrying water/provisions for a self catering stay,just nip in to Fueguerrolla on the train massive supermarket next door to station.Also no need for expesive bus or taxi transfers under four euros for two from and to airport.The staff are very helpful courteous and friendly. Having been to the costa many times this is the relaxed way to see it/let the train take the strain GO TO THE VISTA DE REY.Ray & Maureen Carluke Scotland.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor for better views but all apartments have sea views

Just returned after a 4 night stay with my husband, was given room on the 1st floor room 103 opened patio doors and walked out to sun loungers and pool, was planning to go to the beach in fuengirola, but ended up staying at pool in hotel, so also saved on renting sun beds at beach.
Vista de Rey is situated right beside Torremuelle train station which is a godsend, it only costs 1.75 euro on train, which stops at Benalmadena Torrmolenios Fuengirola so you can eat out at night where ever you want.
Do not get put off by negative reports , you get what you pay for, accomodation was spotless and staff at reception desk very helpful, we got this hotel so cheap that we actually kept it for another day as we had a late flight.
Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a base, I have paid double the money we have paid for here elsewhere , and the accomodation here was much nicer and cleaner.

Room Tip: First floor opens up directly to pool, but heard 3rd floor gets the sun and view of the beach

Hotel was booked for 2 for 5 nights.
A nice quiet remote setting. The hotel is situated at torremeulle station and just outside the station, no need to work any further which is great. Benamedina is just 1 stop away on the metro train.

The nearest convenience store is 5minutes walk.
The beach is 5 minutes walk.

The hotel serves cold breakfast consisting of cereals, toast, bread, cold boiled egg, slices of ham and cheese, jam. Thats all I was alittle dissapointedfor that.

The rooms are great, although they change towels every 3 days and clean the room every 3 days.

We booked the gibralta excursion totally worthit was 20euros each per person to go to mainland gibralta but to get to gibralta rock and st.michaels cave a further 22 euros each per person. Amazing totally worth it.

We also booked for another excursion to tanger morocco, DONOT BOOK OR GO. Totally not worth it, messed around. The tour was a shambles. Costs 60euros per person.
Told us to be collected at 7 wasnt collected til 08.10am, thentook 4 hours up down the coast in the coach collecting others on tour. Took 4hrz to the port then 40mi s to 1 hr in ferry.you spend 3hrs on mainlandin a groip shown around the old town and have a disaster of ameal.no time to shop the an ordeal back to mainland spain via same route, taking 6hrs as the coachdriver was drunk and awaiting a replacement, no apology no remorse ffor young kids no food or drink all on the individuals expense. Also got back to the hotel gone 1am.

Hotel is very nice and quiet but its a 3/4 out of 5. No night life. Good service friendly staff. Recommended.

Lovely hotel but beware it isn't in the location indicated by tripadvisor maps if your using a satnav in a hirecar locate the torremuelle trainstation as a guide as the hotel is right next to it ,it will certainly save you the hastle we had finding it at 1am but apart from that the hotel was great and very quiet if you're looking for a chilled out holiday.

Do not be put off by other idiots writing bad reviews about this place... I have just came back from there after 8 Days. There is a train station on the door step parking also. The rooms are very cleaned and everything you could need is there. Its a short lovely walk to the main coast road. The beach is not much further if you don't have a car. I had breakfast most mornings for 5 euros. coffee,orange juice,toast and cheese/meat.

Its a cheap place to stay and very well looked after. the pool is ok also. Its not 5 star..so don't expect 5 star then moan like some idiots have done. Check it out..its actually very good!!!

Room Tip: ask for 1st or second floor,then your not on ground floor for extra privacy..
