“Another enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This was our 3rd short stay at the Melia Costa del Sol. Suits us perfectly for a short break away. Short taxi ride to the hotel for 20 euros. Check in was quick and found our room once again was very clean and fresh as were all areas in the hotel.
Food again was very good and always restocked very quickly. Could do with the tables being cleared at breakfast though. Did struggle with space and noticed that they were only collecting glasses. Service in the evenings was very good. The hotel does get booked by many large tour groups who often are seating together in the restaurant. It can get a little noisy sometimes. Was good to see that they keep to a strict dress code for evening meals. Saw 2 gents turned away as they were in shorts.
Entertainment is very low key in the hotel but there are plenty of bars and other hotels within a few minutes.
Sadly the weather was very poor but still found plenty to do. (Enjoyed a few hot chocolates in the cafe) With taxis right outside the hotel and the train station only minutes away travelling around is not a problem and pretty reasonable.
Might have to book another short break next month for my birthday and hopefully the sun will shine this time!

Just returned on Saturday the 11th May after our half board stay at the Melia hotel, as is the norm for this hotel we had a lovely stay, we were particularly impressed by the very late evening meal that had been arranged for us as our flight was over one hour late in arriving at Malaga this ment we did not arrive at the hotel until 10.35 pm however a full range of hot and cold food was provided along with a drink, full marks for this. the hotel was once again up to its very high standards with very helpful staff.
well done yet again.

A belated review as we stayed here in January.

Very comfortable room with a great view of the Med and on the sunnier side. Although there were extensive repairs taking place on the exterior walls, we were not inconvenienced.

Like all Sol hotels in which we have stayed we went half-board. Absolutely no complaints about the food, always plenty of it and very tasty. Similarly the dinner was a buffet and again, great choices, and good food. The dining room staff were very friendly, especially Snr Perea who very quickly remembered our names, and what drinks we ordered. He really deserves a special mention and thanks.

The location was certainly in the best part of resort. The room with balcony was clean and well kept. The food in the restaurant was exceptional – fresh, plentiful and so much choice - the variety changed every day. The staff are helpful, welcoming, and professional. Everything about The Melia is excellent and top quality.
Will definitely visit again.

Just returned from yet another great holiday at the Melia. This time we stayed in a junior suite on the 9th floor which had the most wonderful balcony, really making a third room. Views were stunning and it was a perfect spot for sun bathing up to around 2pm. My only suggestion for improvement would be a bit more entertainment in the evenings.

This hotel definitely caters for the short term tourist, especially coach tours and those from the UK, and it does it well. I stayed for 2 nights and was quite satisfied with everything - except perhaps the bar prices! My room was ok, all rooms have a view of the sea, although I suggest requesting one on the upper floors for the view. Breakfast was adequate, with all one would expect, though the "no flip-flops" rule is honoured in the breach! There is also an annoying process involved to get a pool towel. Otherwise the location is excellent and overall my stay was fine.
