stayed here last may 2012 great location, very clean,staff very helpfull,
rooms are ample and have street or pool view ,no problem with noise on the street as long as you kept all doors closed. as a lot of the hotels you wont eat inn.best value and choice is on the strip. only down side for us was the sun around the pool was scarce as it is fairly sheltered.
all in all great spot. we will revisit

Room Tip: street view

We have just returned on the 14th. February after a one week stay, this was our second visit to this lovely hotel having stayed in March 2012. The hotel once again met all our expectations, spotlessly clean in both rooms and communal areas, many areas looked recently decorated. Rooms are well furnished, including fridge and safe and are a reasonable size for a three star hotel although the bathrooms are small. Staff in all areas are exceptionally friendly, we had a very warm welcome and Patricia on reception gave us lots of information on local attractions, especially the february local carnivals. The pleasant restaurant was well managed and food was once again a very good standard. Breakfast was excellent and apart from the normal cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruits, cereals etc. there was a really good choice of cooked breakfast items. In the evening there was always a good selection of cold starters, seafood, salads, cold meats etc. and then always several hot meat, fish, paella and pasta dishes with lovely dessert buffet to finish. We normally stay in four star hotels but would most definitely recommend this hotel, many of the hotels we have stayed in do not match their standards and are very impersonal, when you stay here you are made to feel very comfortable and welcome, a refreshing change.

Room Tip: Pool side enjoy sun for most of the day and evening and rooms on first floor have larger balconies.

This is our second visit to the Hotel Don Paquito in Torremolinos. We think this place is a little gem since it is small and offers great, personal service with lots of smiles.
We think one of the outstanding features is the quality and range of food on offer both at breakfast and for the evening meal.
The dining room is small thus retaining a somewhat exclusive character unlike many in larger Spanish hotels. It is light, airy and welcoming.
The food is always well presented and nicely cooked. There’s a wide range so all tastes ought to be catered for. The salad section is particularly excellent in our view. House wines cost around €10 with large, bottled water coming in at €1.50 so nobody can complain about the prices here.

The rooms are spacious enough, very clean and functional. A top tip is to ensure you have a pool-facing room since these catch the sun from early morning until sunset. They all have small balconies so private sunbathing is possible when you want it.
The rooms at the other side of the hotel are in the shade and also face the road. On both our visits we were able to get the sunny pool-facing ones thus maximising on light and warmth.

The Don Paquito enjoys a good location with everything being within easy reach. There’s a back way up into the town for easy access to the coastal train station. It does involve an uphill walk though. This may be a little steep for persons with mobility issues? Getting to Malaga, Benalmadena and Fuengirola is therefore simple and cheap.

We think that the Don Paquito punches above its weight for a three star establishment and I notice in other reviews how many of the guests have also chosen to return to this place time and time again. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend this great little place for a restful and slightly ‘exclusive’ holiday in Torremolinos. This hotel will appeal to the more mature, discerning guest who appreciates traditional hotel comforts in a quieter area of the resort. The vast majority of guests appear to be couples and the restaurant has practically all tables for two. It represents fabulous value for money.

The free wifi is available throughout the hotel and in the rooms . The network is fast, reliable having no downtime during both of our visits.

Room Tip: Essential - Pool facing rooms catch the sun all day long!

We have just returned from a 5night stay at the Don paquito hotel in Torremolinos.We were on the 4th floor so had a lot of sun in the afternoon.The hotel is very clean and the food was excellent,so much that it was better than some 4star hotels that we have stayed in .We also went to a restaurant called The tudor rose which is about a 3min walk from the hotel.For cheap days out you can visit the crocodile park which is about a 10min walk from the town centre,15 euros per adult & 13 euros per child,also if you carry on straight down the road you will come to the botanical garden and bird park 1euro per person,opening times vary.This hotel is central so is a good place to stay about 6mins walk to town centre.

My wife and I have been to this hotel a few times now. Always pleasant staff, rooms very clean,
excellent breakfast. The location is excellent, with very flat terrain, (unless you wish to go up to the town, but in this case there is a lift available). I am walking disabled so the location suits us
perfectly. The neabry cafes and restaurants are also very good, and very handily placed round the corner, a couple of good english pubs.
