“Gret location, great value.”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Hotel is right on the beach on the border between Torremolinos and Benalmadena, with great views of the sea. The foyer and general areas are very smart but the rooms (we were in a studio) although spacious and clean need a bit of updating and maintenance. The reception staff could learn to smile but any problems were quickly dealt with. The location is excellant as a short walk one way gets you to the lovely Marina with a vast array of smart restaurants and bars while in the other you find many bars and restaurants in the smaller Spanish backstreets that are great value. The promenade is right outside the hotel rear gate and the gentle sloping beach a few feet away. Would recommend the hotel and resort.

Just returned from a stay in the Timor, stayed eight nights in a studio on the seventh floor,studio was a bit basic and dated but was clean and comfortable and supplied our needs,the view from the balcony was great looking out to sea and the Marina. It's a long time since we did s/c as we usually go next door in the Aloha Hotel, but as this unavailable and as we like the location and area we decided to give it a go, we used the studio as a base and ate out most of the time,plenty of choice in the area outside, we particularly enjoyed Kate's Cottage though we had to book as it is very popular!!,Bar Rafael? was also good food and good value.
There were plenty of guests staying whilst we were there,but there is plenty of space,there is a charge for sun beds of 2.50 euros,the accommodation also has sun beds on the beach not sure of cost as we did not use these but I think it was 4.50 euros.
All in all we thought it was good value, and we certainly consider using the Sol Timor Apts again in the future.

We spent two weeks at private rental studio in Timor Sol, the view from the balcony was fabulous. The studio we rented was just perfect for a couple. Plenty of eating places around this area. We had a great time there, but did not like paying 2.50 euros for the hotels sun beds!
Apart from that no complaints. Great location, great area we will be back.

We've yesterday returned from this hotel after staying for a week. Rooms was little dated and there was little bit cold but all in Sol Timor was good. I don't understand why some people don't like this hotel. Anyway, we had a room in 5th floor and we had great view to Torremolinos and Malaga. We also had great weather in there. Sol Timor's location is very good. The hotel shows in pictures older than it shows really.

I like Spain and Torremolinos (and Benalmadena and Andalucia) very much and we had very good holiday. I will certainly be back!!

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views!

Definitely not the best place to spend your money. Rooms are cheaper, but you have to pay for parking, internet, pool etc. The furniture was older than me.
I see quite good reviews from there but I can ensure you that there were many guests to complain. Anyways, the staff was friendly and the people renovating the room next to ours were so. Banging with the hummer from 10 to 4p.m.
Of course there was no warning for it or any kind of apology.

We have just returned from Sol Timor after staying for a week. We requested and received a high pool/marina view and we were so pleased with this. The room had everything we needed and was kept spotlessly clean.We were impressed by the choice and quality of the breakfast. The staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful with any request or query that we had.There is a taxi rank outside the hotel which was very handy to/from airport and the hotel was ideally situated for the beach,promenade,marina and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.
