Reviewed August 26, 2012

This hotel was excellent. Rooms are lovely and spacious. We had a room overlooking the sea and it was beautiful. The breakfast buffet was also amazing as was the pool and gardens.
The staff were so helpful and friendly. We only stayed one night but our flight was late that night at 2100. We checked out at 12:00 and the hotel staff looked after our bags and we were allowed to lay by the pool all day. When we had to get ready to leave for airport we were given our bags and a room to shower and change in. I have never had a hotel do this before. I would definitely recommend this hotel and it is only across the road to the beach also. We were lucky to get a parking spot quickly as parking is scarce but I don't think this is specific to this hotel as parking seems to be limited in the area in general.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view it is amazing.

I'm writing this review from my sun lounger by the pool at hotel Isabel as we speak. I couldn't wait till I got home to rave about this hotel.

Check in went very smoothly and our room was absolutely faultless and spotlessley clean. We requested a sea view and was more than happy with what we woke up to every morning. Built in radio was amazing also.

Breakfast, best breakfast buffet EVER. most delicious hot breakfast, lovely fruit, doughnuts' yogurts and much more.

Pool is gorgeous never any trouble getting a sun lounger.

Rooms are cleaned daily and towels changed. Not one thing I can fault simply stunning.

Just returned after 7 nights. Nice hotel - not luxury but very good - good varied breakfast, all clean, balconies great, beach across the road, many restraurants to choose from, and the main town a 10 mins stroll along the front or a hop on a bus for 1.20 pp.
Very few UK visitors, mainly Spanish and French, mixed with a majority of local people. The Poseiden beach (1 along) is the beach used by local gay men relaxing with freinds and partners -an enexpected plus for us as we're a gay couple.
All just 4 stosp on the train to Malaga airport and a 7 euro taxi ride from the station.
Take the train to ancient mountain town Ronda for a wonderful day out deep into and up the mountains.

Room Tip: higher rooms have better views

I stayed here for 10 nights recently with my mum, and we could not have asked for a better hotel. Location is fantastic - the beach is across the road, there is a local supermarket, you're a short walk away from the main bit of Torremolinos but it's away from the crowds and the noise.

Our room was on the side which meant we had a sea view without paying extra for it, and the staff were friendly and efficient. The room and hotel overall were spotless, and towels for the sun-loungers were provided free of charge, and could be replaced daily if you wanted. The only negative - and it didn't affect our holiday in the slightest - is that the room wasn't particularly big. However, it is a small hotel with limited rooms and it really didn't impact.

There was always plenty of sun-loungers, even late-morning...the breakfast was varied and delicious...I can't recommend the pastries enough! They also have a very reasonably priced daytime menu which was simple but tasty. Some days staff also brought fresh slices of melon round for everyone around the pool, which was much appreciated!

To add to this, if you have a late checkout, if possible they will let you keep your room for an extra charge which is very reasonable, but offer a courtesy room as an alternative if they are too busy. The staff were very accommodating and everything was extremely easy and relaxed. Would recommend to anyone!

Thanks for your feedback. Glad you liked the room. It is true that the standard that you had is a bit small but some of them have wonderful views. The other two types of rooms that we have are larger and all have front views of the sea. Thanks also to highlight the staff, for us a very important aspect. Again thank you very much and hope to have you stay with us again in the future.

We only spent 1 night at this hotel but what a great hotel this is! It is centrally located on the Paseo Maritimo, the boulevard along the sea. There is a great walkway along the Paseo Maritimo that you can stroll to find a great beach spot or a restaurant.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a nice chap at the reception desk and he did everything to make us comfortable, including supplying an adaptor to convert the local electrical outlets to the North America standard.

We had a seaview room (ask or pay for it) on the 6th floor and the view from the large balcony was simply gorgeous. The room was extremely clean with ceramic tiles all over which makes it easy to keep clean and to survey..

The breakfast buffet was amazing and easily was the best we had in our week stay in Spain!

Parking can be a bit difficult at times but is free on the boulevard or in the neighborhood streets.

If and when I come back to Torremolinos, we will certainly look up again at Hotel Isabel.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room, the higher the better for a nicer view

Attention to our customers is critical for us and when customers like yourself stay just one night it is more difficult to keep them happy because nothing can fail as we do not have time to rectify any problems. So thank you for your comments and congratulation

I booked this hotel for 10 days entirely on the feedback from tripadvisor and was not disappointed. We booked in before 12.00 and our room was ready which meant we could get unpacked and enjoy the rest of the day by the pool. The room was spotless in every way, which is a rarity in alot of hotels, so this was a definite plus, the beds and pillows were also really comfortable. We had a sea view from the side of the hotel, which was an added unexpected bonus and it was in the shade from the afternoon onwards which helped keep the room cooler (as well as the air conditioning which was also needed). The cleaners are a credit to the hotel as well as all the staff, including the reception staff and the lady who served the lunchtime meals. There was never a problem getting a sun bed but I think maybe a lot of people went to the beach, which was literally just across the road. There was no particular problem with noise, other than the odd occasion, which can happen in any hotel. The breakfasts were brilliant with a great selection of all sorts of pastries, breads, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit and the list goes on. All in all I could not fault this hotel which is something that I don't say very often. I would definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends.

All employees of the hotel appreciate your comments. I'm glad you have been pleasantly surprised. Your room was standard but there are many which have a partial sea view and others do not. Thank you very much for all your comments

Just stayed here for a week. Arrived to a splendid welcome from the chap on reception who was helpful and cheerful. Great little hotel! We had everything we needed in our first floor room: reliable wifi, bath and shower, comfy bed with extra pillows, balcony with sea view, efficient air con, smashing breakfast buffet every morning. It was a pleasure to come back to the room after a hard day on the beach because the maid would have done such a good job cleaning up after us.
Most of all, it's exactly where you want to be the get the most out of Torremolinos - right on the beach. If you go into town, you're coming downhill at the end of the night rather than climbing up. Checked out this morning, smoothly and efficiently, and then said a sad farewell.
There's a pool at the front but we never used it. We were down at El Gato Beach every day, all day long.

Room Tip: We paid for a sea view but, I have to say, lovely as that was, we didn't look out at the view mu...
