Our first visit to arcos de montemar but will definateley return, the breakfast was plentiful hot and cold, the bedrooms were spacious and very clean fridge in bedroom the only thing that I can criticise on is the lighting in the bedroom only one light over single bed but no lighting over twin beds was rather dark if you wanted to read.
My husband and myself wish everyone at the Arcos all the best for the future we are sure you will succeed.

I had read some very bad reviews from about three years ago + about this hotel, which is officially Los Arcos Montemar. However more recently the reviews were glowing and it seemed a change of ownership had done the trick. Very small compared to most hotels I have stayed in, but that was a plus point as there were no queues for meals etc. Family run and very hands on. Mostly, whoever was on reception looked after the dining room as well. Probably no more than twenty staying there. English, Danish, Spanish and some Spanish Contractors. Two negatives. The food was only luke warm and had to be microwaved in a very small poor quality microwave.Choise was a bit limited, but not altogether a bad thing when you think how much you tend to pig out when there is loads on offer. There was no individual bedside lighting. Not good if you wanted to read and her indoors wanted to get her head down. Pool open and garden very well used. Noticed this year more hotels and beach facilities were open and available. I know I have been disappointed at the lack of sun worshipping facilities in the winter months despite tempetatures out of the wind averaging 23/24 degrees. Anyway Los Arcos thanks for a very pleasant 6 days.

Room Tip: On the main road. Bit of noise from traffic at front

A small local owned hotel with a big smile. I kid you not, one of the best sleeps I ever had in a hotel. Rustic basic rooms with space, fridge, safe, Flat screen TV, heating & a/c, and en suite. The bathrooms are a tight squeeze but the shower is a full bathtub so could accommodate a burly bloke. 24hr access and service, drinks vending machines, but the small bar closes at 9pm and it has the best litre of tap semi-frozen San Miguel in town only e2.50. Breakfast is good and plentiful every day. Beds are generous and firm. Swimming pool is small but does the job, limited space for sunbathing outfront tho. Staff are friendly and hard working, be kind. Room service everyday, Wi-fi is limited to close to reception so if its vital to your modern life request room 116 this is the best room as it has full wi-fi and all day sun balcony.

Room Tip: front facing balcony rooms 116,117.

I stayed for 10 days at this hotel between Xmas and the new year for a relaxing and sunny break. I must say the quality for value is excellent. Rooms are very clean with en suite, the hotel is quiet although conveniently situated in Torremolinos. The breakfast is very varied and generous. A warning on the diners though, as the quality does not match the rest of the services.
All staff are always very smily, helpful and with a very good English. The standards of the hotel are very good overall. Highly recommended for a peaceful stay as it is not exactly a place for party animals.

Amazing value compared with the prices.
We felt like home.
Everything is clean, and well kept (change of towels and cleaning everyday).
The rooms are spacious with a nice balcony.
The breakfast has a good diversity.
Wifi is available in the lobby area.
There is a huge supermarked within 30meters, and the busstation with connection to whole Andelucia is right infront of the hotel.
The staff was excellent and friendly and helpful.
Will definitivly visit again.
Torremolinos is like a town from a fairytale, we loved it!

Very welcoming and helpful and try to do everything to make your stay a good one. Very clean and simply furnished but with everything you need. Good location for beach - just a short walk away and an excellent supermarket just up the road. Could be very noisy in Summer if on front of hotel.
We had half board and unfortunately the food was not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. Plates were cold and very little choice, found it very unappetising.
Would like to see the owners make a success of this hotel as such friendly and hardworking people.

Room Tip: Top floor at back the quietest but some nice garden rooms on ground floor.

The owners of this hotel are friendly, speak excellent English and nothing was too much trouble. My friend and me had some problems getting used to the local cuisine but they changed the menu for us! This hotel is a great base to do Torremolinos and the coast from Malaga to Marbella. The bus stops are close and the buses frequent and cheap (e1.55 into Benalmedena and Torremolinos). We also hired motorbikes and the heater in the room was great for drying off clothing. If you're looking for a friendly base, set back fro the beach front but with great access, this is it.
