“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Just got back from Riu Belplaya and and we can say that it was one of the best holidays we have ever had.All the staff are so good and helpful and the place is spotless.The entertainment does favour the Germans but everything else was great,the food was very good and a good mixture of meats every meal.One of the entertainment team was called Josh and he did a one man show ,he was brilliant and was very funny.The bar staff also do a great job never having to wait to get served,we can't wait to return to this great hotel.

Room Tip: The room we had was a side sea view on the fifth floor and it was very quiet we never any noise.

Just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel and had a fantastic time.
First the negatives, and I am really being picky with these I know:
I would agree with the comments about the beds being hard, however, I am sure that if we used our tongues and asked the staff they would find some way of accommodating this. I had trouble sleeping with one pillow so used a blanket from one of the cupboards to bolster it up. The next day I had a brand new pillow to go with my original one without asking.
The toilets could be more plentiful but there are lifts to each floor and every bedroom has a toilet.
Lack of free wifi seems common around the area, but not much of a problem surely? Very cheap.
There was no fitness room/gym at the hotel, however it would depend on the clientele being targeted here, most of the older guests may not have used it and the children would not be allowed but an option would have been nice.
Now the positives:
The food was magnificent. Anyone of any age who could not find something delicious, varied and plentiful here could not have been looking properly. However picky kids can be, there was always something for anyone, and the ice cream at meal times was unlimited! Always superb quality and loads.
The hotel staff are top quality. All without exception could not do enough for any guests from the receptionists, to the bar staff, the restaurant staff, the cleaners, all of them were superb. The lifeguard controlled any wayward behaviour quietly, calmly and effectively so that other guests were not disturbed. The managers had a quiet assurance and controlled a very efficient place with ease and poise.
Sunbeds were not supposed to be reserved but the usual pointless rush to do this at 5 am did occur, however, there were always sunbeds available.
All in all we were very sad to leave and would not hesitate recommending this hotel. Thank you all for a fantastic time.

When we arrived we where handed a glass of wine or orange juice the foods where lovely can clean the couch was not the best the food was never the same a great choice for everyone the bar-staff Were pleasant and were quick at serving.
The location is not bad it's a 20 mins walk into the town centre not far from the train station it is not expensive to travel on the train.
The weather wasn't the best but we still had a wonderful holiday.
We are going back in October.

just returned on sunday after a lazy week. as this was all inclusive, you sometimes get treated second class but we found the bar staff all really nice smilley and polite. the food was very good and there was always something for everyone.nice to bookin at the poolside restaurent they only a nights notice our room looked over the pool and had aside sea view which was lovely,it was kept very clean. we got the train from the airport to la colina station great value only 3and ahalf euro.you had to walk down the hill to the hotel as there were no taxis around but it only takes 10 mins. walking on the front was great its a lovely coastline. if you walk to the marina it will take you one hour if you are just strolling.yes we would return no problem.we made some great friends

Room Tip: i think all rooms are much the same having the pool is nice

We were unsure what to expect with going to Torremolinos - all friends seemed to pull a face as if to say we must be mad.

Actually it was absolutely brilliant, the area of La Colina was excellent and well maintained and the Hotel was fantastic. The food was exceptionally good and varied with plenty of choice for adults and children. The whole place was spotless and the rooms were especially good, especially with having children, who were able to sleep in the separate lounge area, keeping out bedroom clear. The children enjoyed it so much that they are begging us to return next year.

Room Tip: All rooms were generally good, but we were on the 3rd floor(of 4) and farthest away from the recepti...
