“Great location, but thats it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Reception not very helpful, tried to change room and they said it was full. 10 minutes later a couple from Spain did change theirs. Expensive parking. Asked for no smoking room and mine smelled really bad. Ask for extra pillows. Poor food and always the same. Quite boring hotel with no entertainment just at night for 2 hours and very poor quality. Go early for breakfast or wait for at least half an hour. Wake up early for a sunbed or get none.
Some very helpful staff, Hall Porter and Jose at the bar. Great location, walking distance to La Carihuela and beach. Recommend El Mojito Bar and Mi Bodeguita to have tapas.

Room Tip: Ensure you get what you ask for, I asked for double beds and got twin, asked for no smoking and got...

This is a lovely hotel, situated right on the beach. Breakfast good, but dinners very poor, with mostly fish dishes. If staying again, we would go b&b, and eat dinner at local restaurants.Waiters in restaurant surly .

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the modern block.

Good points:
1. The hotel is very well located. On the beach and half way between Carihuela Beach Center and Benalmadena Marina.
2. The food (I had Full Board) was very good and various.
3. The hotel is very clean.
4. The prices for food and drinks are acceptable.
5. It has SPA and pool *(a little crowded).
6. The stuff is kind, with little exceptions.


Not good:

1. The furniture in the rooms are a little bit old and uncomfortable.
2. Waiting lines may occur in the last hour of breakfast.
3. The beach is not included, but you can stay there free without beds ans umbrella.
4. The stuff, 80%, do not speak any language than Spanish.
5. Supplementary bed is a nightmare.
6. Not facilities for children, so, I do not recommend this hotel for families with children.

TIPS:
1. Get earlier for breakfast.
2. Occupy a bed in the pool before breakfast.
3. Take only Half Board, because you can eat everywhere for lunch at good prices around 10 euro per person.
4. You can do daily shopping in Mercadona 600 m from the hotel for half of the price of mini ”supermarkets” around.
5. Take a guided trip to Gibraltar, it worth. Price around 30 euros.
6. Visit the City of Ronda, also guided trip, same price.
7. Be aware: a lot of fake product on the street an in some shops.

Room Tip: Ask a room with big balconny. Avoid rooms at the pool or near the service court, it may be noisy.

Stayed from 11 until 13 June 2012. Room was 116 euro/night for two people. Garage parking was an additional 15 euro per day! Free parking is difficult to find in the area. Hotel adjoins the beach, has a delicious breakfast with lots of variety, WiFi (free) extends to the pool in the rear, nice decor in the hotel, other guests were mature and not raucous. Enjoyed my stay.

This hotel was much better than we had expected. We stayed at the hotel during one week in April 2012. The hotel is situated by the beach promenade and about 1,5 km from the city centre. There is both an outdoor and an indoor pool and also one for the children. If you want to spoil yourself there is a spa in the house.
Our room was on the 7th floor with a nice view over the sea. Everything in the room was nice and clean. The bathroom was in very good condition and the towels were changed every day, which is not always necessary. The only thing that was very poor were the pillows. Actually is was one long pillow from one edge to the other across the bed.
The breakfast was rich with a large variety. From the breakfast room there was a nice view over the sea.
The staff was friendly and there was always somebody at the desk.
I can recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to enjoy there stay in Torremolinos.

Room Tip: Require a room at the top, the view is magnificant.

Just back from our 12th visit to this hotel. Have never had an issue with the hotel and the staff are always willing to help with any queries. Special thanks to Jose in reception as well as Antonio in the restaurant who both looked after us well.

The outside bar is ideal for drinks in the evening with Monika and Francis always on the ball with serving the drinks, very friendly environment.

Only one drawback this year was the speed of the WiFi connection to be very slow at times but with so many people with Iphones and Ipads etc this one is more difficult to sort.

Already looking forward to our return trip next year.

decent location, close to shops, restaurants and steps to the beach; amazed at the cleanliness of the place the housekeeping staff definitely deserve their tips! had a room with a balcony on the side of the building but still had fantastic views of the beach as well as the mountains and rooftops. Breakfast and dinner buffet was pretty great, can't complain too much, but personally liked to venture out and experience other restaurants...convenient though; pool was very nice but sometimes chairs were hard to come by, public chairs on beach as well but had to pay for them, beach was clean and not too crowded at all; staff at front desk were pleasant and patient with my terrible Spanish

negatives: bed was extremely firm and pillow was very flat so I found it difficult to get comfortable, also shower did not have a full door, but that's just me being picky!

Room Tip: we were on the 6th floor I think on the NE side and the views were great, the other side seemed to h...
