We had the pleasure of staying in Sol Don Resort in Torremolinos in Don Marco for 6 days. The room seemed slightly smaller than the Don Pablo room we had stayed in on a previous occasion, but plenty big enough, with a fridge and a safe. We were in room 4039 a high floor room facing the pools. The décor was spotless and the bathroom was very clean, with a lovely powerful shower. Individual a/c unit very effective and not noisy. The cleanliness of the room and the hotel was of a very high standard. Every member of staff we came in contact with was cheerful and helpful. We spoke to many ‘returners’ who have been coming back for many years, which is obviously complementary for the resort. The meals in both the restaurants was of a good standard, with lots of choice. Among the many choices, the only thing we found not so good was the spinach, which we found to be overcooked and tasteless even with the seasonings. How about some peas . The grounds and the pools were kept to a very high standard, with plenty of beds and umbrellas. We took the local train from Torremolinos station in the town centre to Fuengirola 7.80 euros for 2 people return. Very clean and bright trains and only a 20 minute trip.
One word of warning with regard the Beach Bar Los Corales directly opposite the beach entrance, this we found this to be the ‘tourist trap’, charging for dearer versions of spirit than was actually served and for us also larger coffees than was ordered, hence an advertised Coffee and Brandy at 3.50 euros became a magno brandy at 4.50 and 2.00 for the coffee, and a glass of cola was 2.50, we also spoke to a couple of ladies outside that were charged 19 euros for 2 toasties and 2 cups of tea. You only get caught the once, however forewarned etc. There are plenty of other more reasonable places to chose from. We had a wonderful short break at this resort, and without doubt will return next time we come to Torremolinos.
PS: Just remembered, their garbage men come around 6.00 pm clearing containers of rubbish and GLASS, much better than 4.30 in the morning, which happens in some hotels. Well done the management for the foresight in arranging this.
