Arrived at the costa lago on jan 20th as the hotel was a Riu we expected a good standard of hotel and we were not dissapointed our room was spacious,in fact it was a suite,very clean,towels changed every day,room cleaned every day.Thanks to Eleana T our maid for looking after us.The reception staff could,nt be more helpful.As for the restaurant staff they also were extremely helpful,the food was great catering for all tastes,even a roast every night!!The bar staff gave great service with good quality drinks on offer.We had never been to Torremelinos before so did,nt know what to expect,if you,ve been to Benidorm in the winter then expect the same quiet and clean.The town is great,quaint, lots of shops, bars etc.BUT be aware if you walk from the hotel along the front to get into the the town itself it,s a good climb lots of twists and turns and steps a taxi is 6 euros might be worth it,however it is a lovely walk.Would we go again most definitely the Costa Lago is good standard hotel well worth a visit.

My husband and decided a couple of weeks ago to escape the freeze of the uk. We decided on Spain. The weather was gorgeous like flying into another world. Hotel is positioned a little from promenade about a 2 min walk. The prom goes to Torremolinos then Benalmadena you can literally walk for miles which I enjoyed as like walking.

We were all inclusive which was very good value. You got three meals a day and snacks in between if you could manage. Also tea, coffee, water and alcoholic drinks from 10 am until 12 midnight. The food was very good. Freshly cooked at cooking stations, fish, meat chicken etc. also salads and all sorts of bread and cheese and biscuits. All of good quality and also sweet consisting of cake, fruit, ice cream mousse etc. There was plenty of vegetarian meals as well. breakfast was cereals, full cooked, fresh juice rolls and cakes.

Accommodation consisted of a room with lounge. Very clean. Cleaned every day for you. It was very spacious.

The Manager was there to greet you on arrival with a drink and also at the dining room. He constantly checked the food etc whilst there.

This has been one of the best holidays I have ever had. I haven't been to Spain for years but decided to give it a go. It has been a good choice and I will be going back quite soon.

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the pool. They are looking inwards and the others are looking onto a...

third time to costa lago , as always superb hotel the staff and service is second to none. bar staff must be singled out for there excellent work , always smiling and nothing is a problem. all other parts of hotel as usual are spottless and the food is as good as some better class hotels. overall a superb hotel for a reasonable price, try it you wont be dissapointed.

We had a weeks stay here from 27th Jan 2013. Hotel is lovely, location is a bit far out from Torremolinos but easy enough to walk or get bus or train anywhere - we got train to Benalmadena and also got bus from Torremolinos to Mijas for just 1.40 euros - well worth it, beauttiful scenery and lovely mountain village. Hotel is kept very clean as are the bedrooms. Food is pretty good with always something to suit all choices. Down side is the lack of toilets near the bar - so down one flight of stairs each time is a hassle. Plenty to choose to drink from the bar. I would say this is not an all inclusive hotel though more a full board with free drinks - no snack bar - just continenal breakfast extended til 11.30 and afternoon cakes at 4pm - would not suit families with kids wanting snacks and ice creams all day. On the whole a very pleasant stay and would recommend to others.

Room Tip: Rooms 220 + are above the bar and outside seating so can get noisy in the afternoon and late evening...

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.
