“excellent stay again”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

another excellent stay. Started with no room booking but as expected quickly sorted and in the room within 10 minutes

Staff food and rooms as expected. One comment however that the hotel should consider reintroducing pool towels all year round to save the weight of taking ones own the towel in cases.

well done all at M Costa del Sol

Nice, comfortable hotel in an excellent location on with a bit of a sea view from all rooms. Looks a bit tired from the outside, but the inside is at least partly refurbished. Good service and a very nice buffet breakfast. Would stay there again if I had an early flight out of Malaga. Parking available just few steps from the reception (€11 / day).

Spent 3 nights in the hotel, late Nov 13 and have to say was an excellent experience from start to finish. Really nice quality 4*, very friendly and helpful staff and lovely clean and modern rooms.
Breakfast was superb with an excellent choice of 'Full English' and continental and cereals,fruit, meats,cheeses etc. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 9th floor with Sea views and would choose that again.

We have just returned from a very pleasant five night stay at Melia Torremolinos. The location is perfect, right at the lovely Bajondillo beachfront with plenty of parking available (though we did not need to park). The staff were really courteous and friendly; they had taken note of our email sent a few days back requesting for a large double bed and our fourth floor room was excellent. All rooms have a balcony (with two chairs and a table) and views from our balcony were lovely; there was no direct sunshine on this side of the hotel balcony but we did not stay in our room during the day anyway. Apart from the promised large bed, there was a table and two chairs, one sofa chair, TV, luggage table, mirrored door almirah and easy to connect wi-fi (with wi-fi code left under the glass on the table). The bathroom had a bidet and both the room and bathroom were really clean.

The hotel is not far from the lift to the main town and we used the staircase too as it offered a nice gentle walk uphill to the town. The dining room was large and it was really busy only on one night when a coach trip arrived for the day. Even on the busiest night, the staff were really helpful and took note of our requests promptly. The buffet options for both breakfast and dinner were plentiful and there was a good spread of choices. By the fifth day we were getting a little bored of the (almost) same choices but we can not really complain about the food.

The pool outside on level zero was small but we did not intend to use it (and we did not see anyone else in it either). We also did not use the spa and the gym, but they looked well appointed. On the last day of our stay the bar area was converted to a poster display area for a nanomedicine conference being held at the conference centre next door but it did not cause any interference with our stay. There was an excellent walking and running area almost two miles to the left (on Bajondillo beach) and almost two miles to the right (on La Carihuela beach, stretching to Benalmadena, with excellent fish restaurants).

We will be delighted to return back to this hotel and would highly recommend it to friends and family.

Superbly located hotel right on the seafront. We had a room on the 8th floor which is high up! Good views towards the sea and mountains in the distance. The room has got everything you need for a great holiday - large comfortable bed, comfy chair, free use of safe, balcony with a good view, good bathroom and free wi-fi. Breakfast was included in the deal and is excellent - huge choice of food and drink.

'Pizza Mare' is a great Italian restaurant almost opposite the hotel - recommended for an evening meal. Torremolinos town is up the hill. Walk along the seafront (towards Malaga) to the orange juice seller, and then turn left up the steps! Trains from Torremolinos to the airport and Malaga are great value for money - the hotel is a great place to stay either for a beach holiday, or if you're into visiting the historical sites in Malaga, or both!

Room Tip: We asked for a high up room - got the 8th floor - it does have good views, but it is really high up!

Melia Hotel Costa Del Sol
Just like lots of reviews before me, I found the hotel extremely clean, bed, bath and room were generous in size, as were the towels. View brilliant from our 8th floor room, sound of the waves sent me to sleep and one night witnessed a spectacular lightening show on the horizon. Missed having a kettle in the room, especially since there did not seem to be anywhere available to buy one during the day. Breakfast was a feast of all sorts, I was spoilt for choice. Not really a fault, but it seemed more like a business hotel, maybe because of the time of year. Excellently situated on the beach front and just a short walk to the steps or lift into the square where there are many shops bars and restaurants. Train was cheap enough too, one day to Malaga, the next to Benalmedina. All in all a pleasant three night stay. Taxi rank outside the hotel so 18 euros and 20 minutes later we had left the hotel and got through security at the airport- brilliant.

Room Tip: We were in 867 and it was perfect for two who didn't spend much time on the balcony, but if you...

This hotel is good ! Its a cross between Business/Holiday Hotel with perhaps the emphasis on the business side. Our room was great sea view,lots of sunshine on the balcony - ok it was on the top floor ,which I requested. I found the reception staff excellent and were friendly and helpful.
We were on the 9th floor and found the lifts quite adequate.
The restaurant was very large and functional - not the place for romantic dinners but a place to get well fed, plenty of variety but as with most buffets choose the food you know well (if you want to experiment take small portions) plenty of fish on the menu. Also Paella every night.
If I have a gripe it was indifferent attitude of 2 of the waiters - they let the hotel down they weren't
rude but lazy - we noticed them over the week.On 3 occasions over the week we were there we had to fetch our own coffee and hot milk which were normally delivered to the table at breakfast.
Wine orders taken well into your meal instead of at the start.
We visited in the second week of November - the weather was great but many of the restaurants shops had closed for Winter, I would ADVISE that you eat at the hotel at this time of year. It is lonely walking outside at night and there are pickpockets etc operating (we saw them).
All in all though a really good hotel.
