“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

Just returned from a fabulous two week holiday at Riu Nautilus. This was our first time at this hotel and we have already booked again for next May. What does that tell you! Everything about it was excellent. Our room on the second floor was lovely, plenty of room and storage space. The only downfall was the old t.v. but we have been told that there will be a refurbishing of the hotel this winter so I presume flat screen t.v's will be installed. Also it will be adults only from next May. Everywhere was spotless. The food was excellent and plentiful with loads of choice. We were on second sitting which we preferred and a table was allocated for us for the whole of the holiday. Pool area was excellent with plenty of sunbeds with mattresses and umberellas. The usual thing of putting towels on saving beds but you have to go with flow. The only thing I can't comment on is the entertainment because we didn't stay in the hotel at night. We went across to Toms Tavern every night. One euro 20cents for a pint. Everybody was British that went in so you always got talking to somebody and there was a real good crack. Staff in hotel always ready to help and with a smile on their face.

Just back from a lovely relaxing weeks holiday.Very nice room on the 7th floor facing the sea.Room and hotel kept spotlessly clean.Service and food of a very good standard and bar prices resonable.Only slight problem on arrival as our room was not ready but after waiting 40 mins and a glass of bubbly reception staff found us an alternative to avoid waiting longer.Nearby Marina a bit of a dissappointment not as clean or well maintained as expected.Nice walks on the prom towards the centre of Torremolinos.Tom's Tavern opposite hotel worth a visit for good company and cheap prices-no stinting on measures!

Room Tip: High floor ,main building with sea views.

We had a week at this hotel for our 40th wedding anniversary. what a good choice, the staff were very efficient from the moment we arrived. On the day of our anniversary they laid the table in deep red with a red candle we were escorted to our table where I had arranged for a bottle of champagne to be there. When we had drunk most of the bottle the management gave another bottle on the house. Wonderful gesture on there part. Every where was spotlessly clean and the food excellent. Round the pool the attendant made sure you were comfortable and waiters were always around to get anything you wanted.

This was our first holiday for five years, we arrived at the hotel and was given a glass of wine to drink while we booked in. Our room was lovely & very clean. The buffet style food was very good with so many choices, even the fussiest of eaters will find something to enjoy.
One day I was ill (went to resturant outside hotel) and didn't leave our room until 4pm, went to sit by the pool for awhile, got back to our room and it was all made up, I was not expecting this as it was so late in the day. Nothing is to much trouble for the staff, they are so friendly and helpful. The whole 14 days at the hotel were supherb and I would recommend it completely. It is a 4* but I think it deserves a 5*. Happy holiday.

I along with my wife stayed at the Riu Nautilus hotel in Torremolinos.This Hotel rates high
on my list of hotels.I very much like the idea of two sittings for evening meals,and also
having the same table[numbered] for the duration of your stay.The food is excellent and
of a large variety covering all tastes.
The rooms are large,providing allyou would require.They are cleaned to a high degree
every day.There are plenty of beds around the pool area,and a gate leads from the pool
area directly onto miles of promenade,and the beach is only 5 yards from the same gate.
There are buses to Malaga or Marbella just a short distance up a slight hill and plentiful.
They are also incredibly cheap. There are markets evey day at all the nearby small towns
Alltogether an enjoyable stay.[and the weather is good]

Room Tip: Rooms in the low building facing the pool is recommended

Spent a week here from 10th to 17th April 2012. Excellent in all aspects, staff, hotel room, cleaning, meals etc. It does cater for older couples and the lack of a Gym etc highlights this. I would definately visit again.
