Top Hotel and e spend there a very good Beach Holiday there in Torremolinos. Awesome and large Hotel - with avery good Interiour. My Friends am me have been there for 14 Days. The Beach at Hotel was very clean with clear Water. Swimmingpool Area have been nice, but mostly much Guests there, so we decided to go better to the Beach. In Evening the Buffet for Dinner was very good and there have been a large Choice of Meals. Especially the Desserts have been very tasty. Reception Staff was very friendly and did gave us good Recommendations for Daytrips.

Dear thistle7151,
Thanks for the great review. It is great that you enjoyed the stay so much. I have taken note of the lack of indication regarding vegetarian dishes. We always have a number of options but if they are not well-labelled it is not very helpful. Thank you for the comment.
We really look forward to seeing you again soon.
Kind regards,
Jaime Floyer.

Very happy with the facilties . Many hotels joined as one, pools , kids clubs and entertainment. Situated very closely to the beach and clean. The half board basis offers good breakfast and evening meal options. Being Irish my complaint is that there is no tea or coffee served for evening meals and I am sure many Irish people love tea or coffee with their dessert.

Dear Michelle D,
I am delighted that you all enjoyed the hotel. I am sorry about the coffee or tea at lunch and dinner. We don't have a great deal of demand for it during the meal and after the meal there are a few bars open where we serve a great expresso.
Please come again. Many thanks for taking the time to write the review.
Kind regards,
Jaime Floyer.

My mum, daughter and I stayed in this hotel at the end of June 2013 and I must say it was lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was basic and quite small but it was clean and well maintained. We were half board and the food was buffet style and lots of it it was easy to change to lunch if you wanted to take a walk out in the evening. The hotel was in a complex of 3 hotels and it was ideally situated 20 minutes from the airport. It was across the road from the beach which was well maintained. You had to pay a deposit or your towels and if you wanted a change of towel it was €1 also if you wanted wifi you had to pay for it. There was a fridge in the room which was handy for storing water. The entertainment at the hotel was brilliant there was lots on day and night. Every evening they had a mini disco for the children which was brilliant the only thing was if you were staying longer than a week the mini disco is very repetitive and children may get bored with it especially if they are age 7 up..there was a kids club which was from 10.30- 1.00 and then from 3.00- 4.30 again it was quite repetitive and could introduce more activities for the children especially for the older children.
It is a very child friendly resort with lots of lovely restaurants along the sea front and mini golf close by.
Overall we had a great holiday and will definitely go back to it again. I would ask for a sea view and get a taxi from the airport as our transfers left us sitting on a bus for an hour before we left the airport.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

just returned from 11 nights at this fantastic hotel with my partner and 7 year old son.

we flew into malaga and jumped into a taxi which was 18 euros and a 15 minute drive to the hotel, first impressions of the hotel were very good, a grand lobby marble floors good lighhting large leather sofas etc gave it a very classy feel which i was not expecting.

the reception staff were very efficient and got us booked in quickly with no hassles, we had requested a lower floor due to our 7 year old which had been taken care of in advance.

on the way up to the room i was impressed with how clean the whole place was, the room was no different, very clean and well made up. the room had everything you need hairdryer, fridge 3 beds plenty of towels and bedding, combs shaving kits and shower gel, small tv and air con which was a godsend.

the pools are set over 3 hotels and they are fantastic, and range from small shallow pools for kids up to a huge very deep pool which is central to the 3 hotels which feels like its heated.
the pools are being monitored by life guards at all times, a thumbs up to the lifeguards as they let the kids get on with it without blowing their whistle every 5 minutes which has happened often elsewhere, and when needed just come along and have a quiet word.

weve heard people complaining about people reserving sunbeds but this wasnt an issue, we were there for 11 nights and managed to get a sunbed everyday in the location we wanted with no hassles.

on to the entertainment this was the highlight of our holiday as the team are excellent a big thank you to jonny, polly, maria marco and lorraines favourite Miguel.

these guys work so hard doing keep fit, volleyball,water aerobics and kids club during the day before going on to do some excellent family shows in the evenings these guys are the heart and soul of the place for me.

also at the hotel there are two full size bowling greens and table tennis tables with all equipment avaialable free of charge which was good fun.

there are several restaurants dotted about the complex but we only ate at the cordoba simply because it was excellent and was all we needed, the food was varied and plenty full, most nights there were 3 or 4 types of fish including squid and a whole salmon, steaks,pork and lamb chops, lots of vegetables and salads and italian corner even champagne at breakfast if required, there really is something for everyone and lots of it the staff are also friendly and courteous.

other points are the hotel is literally only yards from the beach and promenade walk, and the other entrance is only a very short walk from the markets and torremalinos old town with lots of tapas bars and restaurants.


the only minor issue at all with the hotel is that we found the drinks at the bar to be quite pricy which was odd as the drinks in the restaurant were well priced, that being said the staff seem to have no issue with you taking a bottle from the restaurant up to the entertainment area,but this really is only a minor issue.

overall it is a fantastic place for the family, so good in fact we only returned yesterday and have all ready booked again for next year, which will give me plenty of time to get in shape to compete against muscles miguel.

Stayed here mid-June for the second year running. Lovely hotel, great location for a short break as just 10minutes from the airport. Landed at Malaga at 11am and was checked in and on a sun lounger by 11:45. Receptionist was really helpful and got us a room early and on the first floor as requested. Food was nice, plenty of choice especially for breakfast. Location of hotel is lovely right on the beach and just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of town. Pool area got very busy and could do with a couple more parasols as if you we're later than 8:15am you had no chance. Also disappointed they have stopped the free wifi as that was a nice extra which I missed this year, I know there is a pay option but when it's just emails for work don't want to be paying extra. Overall like the hotel and resort and will be back again soon I'm sure!
