We booked this hotel as a late booking because of the reviews on trip adviser. I was not expecting the hotel to be as good as the reviews said, but it is. I find it hard to fault, but what makes it so good. Well first and foremost is the staff they are absolutely wonderful not just 1 or 2 of them but the whole team. I cant make out why it is only a 3 star hotel as I have stayed in many 4 star hotels that have not been anywhere as good. So if you decide to book here I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Well its not very often that all reviews are spot on but believe me when I say they are all true about this hotel.The staff from reception,the cleaners,the waitresses and bar staff were all exceptional so well done to them for making our stay so memorable..our room was on the first floor overlooking the pool so nice n quiet..fridge very handy for cold drinks and the airco worked wonders on cooling our room down on a night...we were on b&b and the breakfast was ample every morning very fresh...the location of the hotel is just great 1 minute walk to the beach and lots of very tasty restaurants..10 minute walk up the hill and your in town.we only had one min point which is that the hotel allows non-residents to use the pool now and again!!!!

Room Tip: poolside nice n quiet...

Shazza and I are sitting poolside on our last day at the Don Paquito. It's a great base from which you can explore Torremolinos, though a little distant in the heat for La Carahuela beach.
We have a room on the top floor (5th)' in a small hotel of about 65 rooms, half of which overlook the pool with the others overlooking a quiet road that leads down to the beach. Air conditioning is provide and needed this time of year, along with a small balcony and a fitted hair dryer. Wi-fi is free throughout the hotel and can be picked up poolside and in your room. English TV channels are limited to ITV, Sky News and CBS Drama channel, so no Eastenders people!
Breakfast is served 8am -10am and is a big spread with fresh fruits and fruit salad, the continental sort (cheese, ham, etc) and the usual English as a help- yourself from the buffet. The young lady chef cooks pancakes, omelettes and fresh eggs to order. The whole provided an enjoyable and tasty start to each day.
watch out for happy hour between 5pm-6pm, when you get two drinks for the price of one. The Piña Colada comes highly recommended at two for Euro 5
Torre itself is an older style Spanish resorts with plenty of authentic Spanish cafes and restaurants. I loved it, it has far more character than the new resorts in Tenerife.
We would Definately return to both Torre and the Don Paquito and hope to explore more of the resort next time around.

Room Tip: Ask for a poolside room and take breakfast the same!

We chose this hotel for our Honeymoon last June so it has a special place in our hearts. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked a week in August. We have just returned from our 3rd visit to celebrate our first Anniversary. Everything you read about this hotel is true. It may be a 3 star hotel but it has 5 star staff!! Maria on reception goes above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and Damon greets us like old friends. The rest of the staff are very friendly too.The Manager recognised us and sent us complimentary drinks over and we had a bottle of Champagne sent to our room on our Anniversary! This hotel is fast becomming our 2nd home and we look forward to a return visit in August.

Ricky and Heather.
