We stayed in this hotel last year for 1 week. Location is great just beside the beach. Hotel is ain a complex with newer Sol don Pablo and we had access to all its pools together they have 4 pools if i rememebr correctly. Food was great especially dinner, very good variety of food. Rooms are basic but clean.
The only complain we can make that on check in reception staff send us to our room but room was not cleaned yet and thee cleaner told us to come back after 10 minutes, when we came back room was still not ready. besides that we had a really nice stay.

Dear paulkab, thank you for taking the time tom write in to Trip Advisor to let people know about the hotel Sol Don Pedro. In fact there are three hotels in the complex including the Sol Don Marco (newest hotel mostly for couples) and the Sol Don Pablo. There are 9 pools in total and spectacular gardens so there is plenty to enjoy and always a spot around the complex where our guests will feel comfortable.
I am extremely sorry to hear that you were sent to a room that was not ready. Obviously as this happened last year it is hard to know which members of staff might have been on duty but I will certainly speak to the Head of reception to make sure this does not happen. Our rooms are officially available to occupy from 2 p.m. but we always try to make them available as soon as they are ready, for guests who arrive earlier. I fear that in their haste to please, the receptionist did not check properly before making your assignation. Sorry.
Thanks again.

Weve just come back from 7 days at the sol don pedro we were originaly booked into the don marco and last minute the hotel changed us over to the pedro ,but i was not dissapointed as the hotel was lovely we were in rooms 3048 and 3050 on 3rd floor overlooking pools and the beach ,the 3 hotels all run into each other to make one big hotel with 9 pools and a jacussi .food there was something for everyone even had an italian corner with a chef serving pizza ,lasange, pasta lots of choice, breakfasts again lot of choice ,desserts were delicious. so i will go back ,i thought belamedena marina was about 10 min walk but be warned its more like an hour and thats if you are fit.im not so i could not go with the family. please go to nerga caves and frigillana its the same trip we loved it .

We appreciate you letting everyone know about your experience at the hotel Sol Don Pedro janetderrick. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the restaurants so much. For guests who book half-board it is useful to note that aside from breakfast you are free to have either lunch or dinner which means that if you decide on dinner out, or going for tapas, you won’t lose out on a meal.
Benalmádena Marina is definitely worth a visit but, as you say, it is quite a walk (takes me 45 minutes and I walk fairly quickly) but a taxi currently only costs 14€. I hope that you come again and give it a try.

Stayed here from 5th/14th June this was our first time in torremolinos hotel is lovely staff friendly and everywhere was spotless apart from a problem with our rooms on the first night which was rectified the next day the rooms were a good size clean had plenty of storage and in a lovely location over looking 1 of the many beautiful pools. we had half board which was very good value and there was a good selection for breakfast and dinner the grounds of the hotel are beautiful and its only a few mins walk to the beach entertainment wasnt the best we ever saw but we were there for a relaxing holiday and that is what we got my one complaint would be about the chairs around the pool or rather the people who put towels on these and leave then empty for half of the day it was totally unnecessary as there is 9 pools on the complex and you could always get a chair something should be done about this by hotel management overall we had a great holiday and would highly recomend this holiday

Room Tip: rooms 317 to 319 have sun almost all day

A lovely hotel, which was very comfortable and friendly. Staff were amazing, they were polite, attentive and always had time for you. Entertainment was provided night and day whether it be pool sports or reptile night! Though i did find entertainment organisers could be a bit insistent if you were reluctant to join in which did get a bit irritating! The food was lovely and the chefs were only too happy to cater for us. The buffet style allowed the freedom to choose from a wide variety of delicious local and more familiar dishes. There was a selection of pools as the hotel is joined to it's sister hotels. This meant there was a quieter pool to relax by and a barside pool where people were more highly concentrated.
The beach front was less than 5 minutes walk away (literally across the road) this offered us the chance to decide where we wanted to spend the days.
At the time of our visit, the pool gate exiting to the beach had a sort of security guard near it who checked whether you were staying in the hotel. This added a sense of security to the hotel which made it all the more easy to relax.
Local ameneties were on your doorstep which made it easy to pop out and get the morning paper.
Our rooms were attended to extremely well and were very clean. They were a little out of date as was the decor of the hotel but a lot are, and i found it added to the character of the place.
There were plenty of places to sit and read a book and relax or explore or commune with other guests. When we stayed at the hotel the Olympics (2008) were on and the hotel offered excellent coverage of the events if guests wanted to watch them.
The hotel provided excellent information for travelling outside the hotel and were more than happy to help book trips etc.
Overall, the Pedro offered excellent service and provided us with a fun and friendly atmosphere. We are staying there again this year and i have to say, I cannot wait!

Note:I have put the date as 2011 as it would not let me mark it as earlier. This is not the time we stayed, we stayed in the August of 08.
