ClubHotel Riu Costa del Sol
Ranked #11 of 71 Hotels in Torremolinos
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Just returned - 3rd. Feb. after a weeks stay.
The value for money is exceptional. The location, right on the beach is perfect and it is in a quieter part of Torremolinos. If you want a busy night life outside the hotel - its not for you.You could not fault the food - a great variety with special a themed meal every night.
The staff could not be more helpful and seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
Just a point to note- I would say that the hotel would not suit the younger element. In fact I guess the average age when we were there was approaching 65 / 70.
All inclusive is always a bonus and we made best use of it.
We were allocated a room on the 9th floor - amazing views of the beach ,seafront,Torremolinos and the mountains- sun on the balcony all day.
Although the room was sold as a side sea view, they are all angled towards the sea. There are 2 blocks around the pool, In the 5 storey block, ask for floors 3/ 4/ or 5.
In the 9 story b lock ask for floors 7 / 8 or 9 - for best views. Although the hotel was full, there are no problems in finding a lounger around the pool.
It there was a downside, it was the evening shows. Considering there is no alternative outside in the evening, it was the only thing to do, The standard was very amateurish and the room quite small so there was always a problem in seating. Also I found the beds a little firm.
This is only a minor complaint however.
There is a bus stop outside the hotel to take you into the centre and the train station - called COLLINOS, is about a 10 to 15 min .walk. Both very cheap.
Will return without fail.

Watch out for this hotel, new to the Riu group it will make its mark! Exceptionally clean, contemporary feel. Whilst still undergoing refurbishment there was no disruption to the excellent service.Room had lovely lounge area, door, ensuite bathroom, toilet, bidet, sink, bath with shower, bedroom and balcony overlooking terrace, pool out to sea. The manager Mohamed never seemed to sleep... He constantly checked cleanliness, food and service, was alway there for a chat, reception staff were helpful and smiled constantly, bar staff deserved a medal! Food was brilliant, meat tender hot and freshly cooked, good choice of salads, fruit and deserts, as we were off season cold buffet between meals... So if coming back from a walk or trip having missed a meal ther was no excuse for going hungry.
Public transport really convenient, bus stop just outside, train a short 5-10 min walk up a slight slope, so if you want to pop into Malaga or down the coast or just up into torremolinos it's a good place to be. Looked for every excuse to stay but they opened the uk airports after the snow and I had to come home... Value for money and looking forward to going back ... Thank you Riu!

Room Tip: Higher rooms in central block have less noise from entertainment.

One or two things that niggled but overall an excellent hotel.
Situated close to the airport and train station, made travelling very easy. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of "champagne" which was a nice touch, taken to our spacious and clean room, nicely decorated. Lovely view of the pool area, lots of sunbeds.
Pool bar open during the day and the terrace bar open at night.
The food was quite good, found something different each night, one of my niggles was the sittings system at dinner, i would have preffered to have been on the earlier sitting as i like to walk after my evening meal but found the late sitting a little late, i didn't ask to change as i was with my family but i'm sure this could have been sorted.
The entertainment i cant comment on really as we tended to sit on the terrace with drinks after dinner so didnt see it.
The drinks were good and i like the self service on coffee, wine and beer.
My other niggle is the distance from the terrace to the toilets, however we were told that this would be changed in the near future.
The hotel is situated quite a way from the centre of Torremolinos but it is a nice walk into.
We travelled to Benalmadena and Fuengirola on the train for a few euros.
Overall i would return to this hotel, and improvements are being made as it has just become a riu

Just had a lovely short break and couldnt believe how friendly,polite and professional all the staff are. The food is very good lots of choices, great breakfast lunch and dinner and all inclusive is well worth the money. It has not long been taken over by the Riu chain so there is a little bit of updating being done here and there but this in no way affects your holiday. I can honestly say I have stayed in a lot of hotels and if you want good value nice staff etc you cant go far wrong!!! I travelled solo and had a great room full bathroom and small seperate lounge balcony etc, rooms could do with a bit of updating but overall very good!!
I will definately be returning.:)

Truly fantastic hotel ! From checking in the staff made you feel that extra bit special with a real welcome and genuine politeness and a complimentary fruit juice (which was really appreciated after an early flight from the UK)

Hotel immaculate, food fantastic and all rooms appear to have a sea view, some maybe side/partial .

We are going back in 3 weeks time and really looking forward to it

It is a gem of a hotel and well worth considering when staying in the Costa Del Sol

This hotel is definitely keeping the Riu standards

just returned from a week at this hotel and can definitely recommend it ,rooms are great,we found the beds rather hard but the atmosphere and fab staff make up for it,if you arent good at walking the bus stop is right across the road,another plus is the train station is about a ten minute walk away which will take you anywhere along the coast for a few euro,all in all a great hotel

Room Tip: we were in room 419 and all the rooms on this side get the sun all day

We went as a family of six and asked for three rooms together on high floor overlooking pool, also emailed them asking for the same and also mentioned my husbands 65th birthday but got three rooms at back of hotel overlooking the hospital and on ground floor. The hotel is lovely and all staff are all friendly. A bit of looking around for a table for six as some tables are closed off, not a good idea when hotel is full. Saw tables with candle and free cava on some tables but no one bothered with my husbands birthday. Bar gets full not big enough for amount of people and tiolets are on lower floor but overhall nice holiday
