“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Cannot fault this Hotel. Have been going there twice yearly for the past three years now. The low price (for all board types), Location, food, service, rooms and Staff are just exceptional.

Try it for yourself and I know you will return.

I rate it 10/ 10

The hotel looks very grand from the reception area. The room was good and roomy but the downside was the food and the entertainment. They advertise entertainment on a Thurs, Fri and Sat evening, which you think I suppose thats not too bad. But all it was, was spainish music!!!!! As far as the food goes there was very little variety and what there was wasn't very nice. Also when you went down to breakfast 80% of the tables had not been cleared away from the night befores evening meal. The location is superb. We certainly won't be going back to the cervantes. Very disappointing.

Stayed at this hotel back in October 2012, and returned in February this year with my sister. One of our missions should be choose to accept was to do a reccy on behalf of other family members as we'd all booked flights back to Malaga in April.

We looked at Griego Mar (good hotel but a bit out of the way), Al Andalus (it was closed for the winter but was way way out of the way anyway) and another one, which was so unimpressive, I can't even remember its name. So our unanimous decision was for us all to return to Cervantes again in April.

We found the food to be very very good this time and particularly liked the fact that you could just help yourself to a bottle of wine for your table in the restaurant. Bar staff was very courteous and helpful. Our main love of this hotel though is the location, as I said in my last review. You can't fault it, the side entrance goes straight onto the pedestrianised squares (my husband was greatly relieved to hear this as he worries about me crossing those Spanish roads after a few B&C's - Ha! Ha!

We arrived on the Saturday and, yes, there were a lot of Spanish, and yes, they were a bit rude in the dining room, but hey, we just laughed it off and got on with enjoying ourselves. Come Sunday evening, it all quietened down again. There was Spanish type music in the bar on Friday and Saturday evening, but we always had a few shandies and hit the toon! Churlish not to!

We are all looking forward to our next trip mid April - Watch this space for another review!

The hotel was an easy level walk from the railway station in Torremolinos. Check-in was efficient though brusque. The public areas were well-maintained though not fully used until the weekend.

Rooms were comfortable and kept clean. We requested extra pillows and they were provided immediately. There was no noise from adjacent rooms. Televisions were old style but adequate. There were four lifts serving the hotel and, at mealtimes, there could be long waits.

The majority of guests appeared to be on all-inclusive deals but we had just booked half board. Seating in the dining room was handled efficiently but different tables were allocated each evening and at breakfast we chose our own table. Drinks' orders were taken as we were seated. There was a wide range of hot and cold foods, including some being freshly cooked. The choice was somewhat repetitive and at times eccentric (peas, carrots and green beans as a breakfast choice).

The weekend was a nightmare in the dining room. We noticed the arrival of coaches on the Friday evening and the hotel seemed very full. The dining room was far from relaxing with massive queues even though additional dining areas had been opened and extra buffet areas provided. The staff seemed barely able to keep pace with the demand but were both cheerful and professional throughout.

There was music and dancing on the Friday and Saturday which attracted many of the largely Spanish clientele.

One haven of peace during the day was the roof pool and terrace area with great views over the town and towards Benalmadena to the west and Malaga to the east.

Whilst there was nothing wrong with the Cervantes it was not the most relaxing environment. It was easy to reach the fine beaches by walking or taking a nearby lift and shopping and a range of restaurants were all very nearby.

Stayed for two weeks last February (2012).
The hotel looks impressive on arrival however the rooms are basic and the wooden floors make for a lot of noise from the room above.
We were full bored and the food became very repetitive over the two weeks.
The hotel has a 4* rating however I have stayed in better 3* hotels.
On the plus side the hotel is in the town centre near to the train station and the night life.

Room Tip: The lifts are not efficient so ask for a low floor.
