As we had booked this hotel and then read the reviews we were a bit wary but we had no problems. I travelled with my Husband and two children aged 9 and 5 and stayed in the apartments self catering. From Ireland I believe we were the only English speaking guests but that was never an issue, it was nice to go on a foreign holiday and actually spend it with different cultures.
For us the hotel was a bit out of the way from the town centre, as we were self catering we like to eat out in different restaurants, the town centre is at least 30 - 35 min walk although nice but in the hot sun with a 5 year old it was a bit too far. We ate breakfast in the hotel one morning and there was plenty to choose from, we ate from the snack bar a couple of times and the food was fine. We had a late flight on departure day, for 30 euros we were able to keep our Apartment all day so we could spend the day at the pool and then pack and get ready at our leisure.
The pool was lovely and had a sloping entrance for the children which was great as my 5 year old daughter was a bit nervous in the water at first but this was very safe. The beach is directly across the road and we would rent the sun loungers and spend the day there. The weather was very hot so you definitely needed the shade of the umbrellas. We took a couple of day trips to neighbouring Benalmadena and Fuengirola. We got the train (station 5 mins from hotel) very reasonable and clean. The zoo at Fuengirola was a bit expensive but well worth a visit beautiful surroundings.
The Reception, bar and cleaning staff are a credit to the hotel they were always willing to help and had a permanent smile on their faces. Our Apartment was left clean and tidy every day we returned they even folded our clothes!
The hotel provided entertainment every evening and my kids loved it they mixed and danced with all the other children and miss the nightly disco now they are home. We had a football for the kids to play with and as we all know football has no language barriers as long as the kids are scoring goals!
The hotel is a bit dated but by no means run down, the gardens are beautiful and the apartment had a good size patio with a table and chairs. We were ground floor which was ideal as the kids could play and easily run in and out of the apartment.
Would definitely recommend Torremolinos and the Camino Real just be warned you are a bit out of town if you like the atmosphere of the winding bustling streets which were lovely, plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, only warning if you have a 9 year old like mine who is a fussy eater there is not a big selection of kids meals the type we would be used to i.e chicken nuggets, burgers etc but most of the restaurants will try to accommodate your requests
