On our tour of Spain, we stayed at this awesome hotel. The hotel is situated across the street from the Ocean where you have access to beach chairs and towels etc. The hotel pool looked inviting--unfortunately for us it wasn't open till June but we were able to walk along the beach and stick our feet in the waves --too cold to jump in yet--The bar was spacious and the bartender, Carlos was very helpful. He even helped me with my fledgling Spanish. The main attraction at the bar was Mario--the musician who was a talented keyboard player with a great voice. We danced until we closed the place at 12:00. The next day, after dancing like a fool and forgetting how old I was, I went to the hotel spa called the "Thalasso Spa" to take care of my weary muscles. Lola at the front desk of the spa was very helpful. I soaked in their, hot, giant, seawater, Jacuzzi and used the steam bath and sauna. I also treated myself to a 50 minute massage. Their massage therapist, Cruz Godoy was incredible. She told me that she had been doing that for 20 years and that she loved her work. It was evident by the way she worked. I walked out of their a new man, only to dance like a fool the next night. My room faced the ocean, was spacious and clean and had a balcony. They had a gym but the weight equipment was non functional. The breakfast buffet was very good and the food selection was extensive.
I would definitely stay here again.

What a cracking hotel only 10/15 minutes from the airport by taxi (20 euro's) and you arrive at this beautiful beach front hotel reception was lavish fresh and clean and extremely welcoming even at 0030 hrs by the night guy check in was fast and directions given to a great room on the 5th floor with an amazing sea view. Rooms are in a good condition and air conditioned great to have carpets and a good sized TV with BBC 1, BBC 2, BBC World and a couple of other news channels in English. The mini bar is also well priced at 2.50 euros per drink.
Beds a little hard (personal taste) but ample pillows and spotlessly clean
Breakfast served from 0730 ish till gone 1030 ish and a real good choice to suit all tastes
Pool is small but you are opposite the beach so the pool is quiet never had a issue getting a bed although the pool is on the front of the hotel its above street level so great for sun bathing i privacy but no pool bar so we just nipped to the supermarket for drinks!! everyone seemed to do this and nobody bothered you.
Evening entertainment was low key but didn't bother us as went out mainly to the main square
Hotel is 5 mins walk to the lift into the mai square(0.50 euros) each way so great value to get the lift up and walk back through Calle de San Miquel area
This is a cracking hotel with loads to do nearby and on the prom for walks or just to people watch from the Prom Wall or one of the many bars
Defiantly going back later this year as joined the free rewards programme so this gets you additional discount on the usual prices so worth joining up

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have a good sea view but we were on the 5th floor and it was great

we stayed here for 5 nights at melia costa del sol,,the hotel is beautiful and the bedroom furnished to a high standard.we stayed on the 5th floor and the view of the beach/sea was amazing..breakfast had lots of choice and you can eat as much as you like..staff spoke great english and were friendly and helpful,,i took my own travel kettle as no tea making facilities in room and was able to keep milk in the mini fridge..its not a family-orientated hotel so no entertainment in the evenings and no pool bar so you have to get drinks from nearby shops..that was the only negative point,,overall it was a relaxing stay and we will be booking to go back soon!!

Room Tip: ask for sea-view..5th floor had great views..

We stayed five days at melia Costa del sol in April. The hotel is immaculate, rooms are spacious,The room has a minibar, sea view and beds very comfortable. Bathroom is well stocked wth plenty of toiletries including shaving kit if required.
The hotel is perfectly located on the beachfront and is in a quieter part of the resort.
The quality of food is exceptional. We have stayed in many four/five star hotel and this restauarnt was one of the best. The restaurant staff could have been a little friendlier and one maitre' d was particularly rude - had a lengthy telephone conversation whilst we were waiting to be seated and didn't acknowledge our presence. However when he wasn't on duty, there was a noticeable difference in the atmosphere of the restauarant. This did not marr our enjoyment though.
The hotel is not really a family hotel and as others have said a lot of tours (american and australian visitors) stay in the hotel overnight. Having said that this was an advatageous for the holidaymakers as the pool area always had suffcient sunbeds and was a calm and peaceful area.
During our stay we visited Malaga and the Alhambra palace (tour operator africa tours see separate review)
We took the train to and from the airport - this was a speedier option - trains every 20 minutes, journey time 10 minutes cost 1.75 euros. We also used the train to go to malaga.
Overall this hotel was a very good choice, staff were very helpful and professional and I would use this hotel again. The quality and choice of food was excellent.

Room Tip: Sevice would have been 5* with the exception of the maitre'd. Rooms on the sunny wing (two wing...

Just stayed a week in this hotel. Everything went well. Breakfast very good.A chef cooking omelets, and also cava available. We ha a junior suite at 9th floor, with great sea view from very large balcony. Staff was very nice and friendly. Location is perfect. Next to the promenade and the stairs, which you can use your way to "upper" town. Near by many good restaurants. Excellent choice.

Room Tip: Take a junior suite. High floor. Face to sea.
