Gran Cervantes by Blue Sea
Ranked #34 of 71 Hotels in Torremolinos
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Stayed here for 1 week from 30/09/13 in room 109.
Room- Fairly basic but very clean with large balcony overlooking pool. Toiletries suplied for those travellers on hand luggage only. I used bath towel around pool with no problems. Air con worked fine and room was generally very good.
Main pool was popular with the All Inclusive brigade which, as usual, are intent on getting their monies worth!!. No better or worse than anywhere else but it does get it's fair share of drunken, rowdy morons.
The roof top pool was totally the opposite as the bar was closed. Amazing views and a good size pool with just enough sun beds.
Restaurant. Very large but still got crowded even in low season. The staff "drip feed" you in to try and prevent over crowding but it still got a bit silly at times. Food reasonable for buffet style.
Public areas quite good with large reception/lounge area.
Location. Very good, 2 minutes from train station which is a 10 mins 1.70 euro single trip from airport.
Generally very good hotel and for £240 for a week H/B, a reasonable price.

I came there with my wife for honeymoon and I can say, we had a great holidays. First good thing, is location. The hotel based in the best place of Torremolinos, only 10 minutes walk away from the stunning beach, just few minutes from shopping area and the train station. It is so amazing view from the gym area on the top floor. There is a swimming pool, sauna and free sun beds. On the ground is very good swimming pool as well, lots of free sunbeds. You can get drinks in the outside bar during midday, you don't need to come inside bar. Makes you really relaxed.
We booked room with the sea view. The view is so beautiful from balcony (5th floor) and makes you feel very relaxed. It is allowed to take drinks to your room. Staff is so friendly, doing great job, food is excellent. You have big choices at he restaurant.
Just few things which could be improved: 1. Cleaners did't clean room properly, there were dusty floors, especially under the bed. 2. Bed mattress was so hard, sometimes I had to get up at the middle of the night with pain in the back. 3. All inclusive drinks bar finishes at 11 pm. If you just had a dinner at 9 pm and want some cocktails, you must to hurry up as bar will finish very soon and after 11 pm you have to pay for the drinks. 4. No entertainment at all. However, one man was playing on the keyboard on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 pm for few hours. But is was so boring. No music at the bar at all. 5. It was old fashion and style furniture in the room. I can say 80s style. If those 5 things could be improved, we would definitely will choose this hotel as our holidays destiny and will come back every year but next year we will go somewhere else. Maybe to Greece, Maroco, Cyprus or Tunisia.
Anyway, I would recommend this hotel for holidays as it has great location, excellent service and food.

Room Tip: The best way is to pay some extra money and book room with sea view in the middle floor (4-6).

Nice clean hotel, rooms serviced every day, around the pool could do with a revamp, however the beach is like 5 minutes walk using the beach lift over the road from the hotel. The hotel is also just off the main square with bars etc. The food was fresh and plenty of it, you wont go hungry. The staff were very helpful, most speak English and seem happy to help. I would recommend as it was value for money. I would go back.

Stayed for one week in September. The best thing I can say about this hotel is that it is situated close to stores and restaurants as well as the train station. The hotel itself was disappointing. The room was very basic, the bed uncomfortable and the air conditioner didn't work, even after it was supposedly repaired. The halls and elevators lacked air circulation. Very hot in the elevators, and the halls smelled musty and moldy. The pool area lacked space and chairs for the amount of people at the hotel. Note, if you want to get to the beach, it's 180 steps down to get to beach street level. The food is very basic and of poor quality. Definitely not a 4-star hotel. Would not recommend this hotel.

arrived bout 9ish reception were very efficient being as there were 12 of us,found hotel to be clean food was acceptable(personally i found it better at the hotel griego mar that we stay at in may)but all our group were fairly impressed you ain't gonna starve.pool area is a good size with lots of room and beds, pool is lovely.

The only downer i would say really is the bar and the cheery barstaff,beer was served in small wine glasses which you could only get 2 so u both have to go to bar and the staff never seemed in a hurry as there was only 1 bar open in the evening and the queue could get big v quickly,and be careful if they haven't changed the seating outside as the seats pinch your butt or ladies dresses as i would say 80% of them are broken,they may well change cos we did mention to the barstaff!!

other than that nice hotel and great location close to lift for beach and 2mins from main shopping area

Could not fault the hotel or location. Very clean and good choice of food daily. Unfortunately there is no entertainment at this hotel. Sadly aswell if you are all inclusive, drinks are only free upto 11pm.
