“Enjoyable holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Just back (literally) from 5 days at Tarik Hotel, Torrbemolinos. Nice hotel, large comfortable room, decent balcony. Staff all very friendly and prepared to help anyway they can to make your stay pleasant. Generally meals were very nice, plenty of choice and lots of it (only one evening meal we didn't really enjoy). Next to a couple of lively Irish bars and across the road from sandy beach with plenty of comfortable sunbeds. Good promenade to walk along into Benalmadena if you feel like a change of scenery or you could go into the town centre and hop on a train to Malaga.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking pool/garden if possible

My friend and I travelled for our usual Spring break in May 2013. We chose the hotel for it's size and Spanish feel - we were not disappointed. There is no entertainment and I would not recommend for families with small children - most of the clientele were couples over 30.
Good mix of nationalities, which we prefer.
Hotel is directly across the road from the beach. Rooms are on 3 floors and set on 3 sides around the swimming pool on inner side of the corridor, but face buildings next door on the outer side.
Nice, comfortable sitting area, off reception, where 2 computers are available to guests for very reasonable charge. Glass doors lead to dining room and swimming pool/outside seated area.
Bedrooms are a good size with a generous en suite - shower was powerful - hooray. Hairdryer in bathroom. No kettle, but we took our own. Walls are thin - particularly noticeable in the bathroom !!!
We had a room with balcony near the front, but facing the restaurants next door, which was noisy, but we coped and had a beautiful view of the sea, on an angle.
Originally, we were allocated a room facing the pool, but unfortunately this had a double bed - we had specified a twin. I did ask for a twin room, facing the pool, but I was told this was not possible, as they were fully booked - the hotel was NOT full at that point.
We stayed on a half board basis. Buffet style and more than adequate. The hot plates did not work well at all and so some food was lukewarm at best.
All staff were pleasant and helpful - good English speakers too.
We weren't very lucky with the weather - experienced sun, cloud, wind, rain, cold all in one day ! We did discover a marvellous cafe/ice cream parlour that served the most delicious hot chocolate - I know, but we were cold ! Cafe called Mandarina y Cava - turn right at Burger King and just up the slope - beer, coffee, sangria was great too. Run by a welcoming Spanish couple.
Hotel checkout is at 12 noon. There is a locked room to leave cases and a shower room off the pool, if you have a later flight.
We had a good stay, but would prefer a pool facing room if I was to return - and some sun, of course !
Feel free to ask questions, if I've forgotten anything.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool.

Literally just across the road from the beach in one end of Torremolinos, just a 10 min walk from the city center. Plenty of restaurants around the hotel and loads more within 10-15 mins. walk. Hotel is of older date, but rooms are of good standard, beds ok without beeing amazing, everything spotlessly clean, grounds are well kept. Walls are bit thin, but not much noise in general (despite the german bikies). Staff nice, speaks english well (the ones we spoke to on check in/out).

Only had the breakfast, but it was plentiful, (eggs, bacon, croisants, bread, cold cuts etc), could use a bit more fresh fruit instead of the canned stuff, and way to much viennoiserie for my taste. Could up the quality and cut down on quantity of breakfas items.

In a town of 60's and 70's architecture horrors, this place is actually quite nice. Nothing fancy, but well worth it for the money. Recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the pool probably has a nicer view in general, but i think that the ones faceing th...

Really nice hotel with fair prices. Staff was friendly and helped us with excursions.
Most guests seemed to be German, between the ages of 50 - 60 years old. This probably goes for majority of the hotels in Torremolinos. Torremolinos seems deserted.
Hotel is right at the beach, but we always found plenty of free parking spaces right in front of the hotel.
Wifi is free, but only available in lobby area. It's a pretty small hotel so with a simple wifi extender you would have a lot more happy guests.
Breakfast was OK. Unfortunately, the dinner buffet is extremely poor. The food was not only terrible, it was also cold most of the time. Of all the (many) hotels we've stayed at, this was the worst dinner buffet we've ever experienced. By far.

This hotel is pretty much ideal and in this price range very hard to fault.

The staff are excellent; helpful and with great English language skills. The breakfast is really good. The range of food is good and the quality is fine. We didnt eat other meals there because there is such a superb range of places to eat within a few yards of the hotel that it was pointless to do so!

The place is clean and well kept. The chamber maids do a reasonable job. The pool of lovely and there are plenty of sunbeds (some a bit old, but perfectly serviceable.

Praise does not come lightly from me as you will see from my other reviews! This really is a very good place and I really recommend it.

Room Tip: If you are a couple you need to go for a proper double bedded room; not a room with two single beds...

Returned yesterday after spending a very enjoyable week. If you want small and quite traditional the Tarik is for you. Perfect spot with terrace overlooking beach. Standard of cleanliness very good and staff more than happy to help in every way.We would most definitely stay here again, but on a bed and breakfast basis as the food served at Dinner was never warm enough and not really to our taste. We did mention the temperature of the food a few times without much success.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool side room

This was apparently one of the first beach-front hotels in Torremolinos in the 60's, and it's really retained some charm from that era.

Rooms are nicely furnished and are serviced every day to a high standard. We were really concerned after reading some other reviews about staying half board but there was absolutely nothing to worry about. Breakfast was fine and dinner was consistently good. I'm quite a fussy eater and always found something - the braised meat dishes were delicious and house wine really good value. The waiting staff were always lovely too.

The hotel really comes into it's own if you enjoy lazing around the pool - it's amazingly quiet, no screaming children or fighting for sun beds... just a relaxing atmosphere with like-minded chilled out people. I probably wouldn't recommend it for families with little ones.

Would definitely return - if you're booked in here - enjoy!
