“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great location, it was good to sit outside watching the world go by . Nice fountain in view and lit up at night time. Only downside near a school but loads of good cafe and front. Very close to the beach and is a lovely walk to belemadena or torremolinos .

i don't know what the two bad reviews are about it is a one star hotel in a quiet village in spain which is 10 yards from the beach and you can get a wine and beer for £3 on the premises and sit outside. why complain about the room when you have that downstairs, it is only two floors so no need to bother about lifts either. the cost is half what other hotels charge and your expectations arre accordingly low i don't care if the manager smiles or says hello in broken english! anyway this place is excellent if you want a beach holiday in a nice pedestrianised promenade with no stresses or eager shoppkeepers wanting your money. be warned the spanish eat very late so restaurants have strange opening hours and many offer only fish dishes. the launch is great for a romantic meal looking out to sea. but try mad monk or winstons or nigel and cheryls for pie and chips or english meals all very good. wine is cheaper than soft drinks 1 euro for wine 1.5 for coke! buses are 3 euro to go anywhere whatever distance for two people we went to mijas and benalmedina and fuengarola all same price. the hotel is brilliantly placed to do all this so no need for a car or any problems with traffic.

Room Tip: front room over fountain first floor

Stayed here for 9 nights, got back at the weekend..
The Cabello is a lovely little 1* hotel,
The view from our room was beautiful, the beach is a stones throw away!
Room was cleaned daily, fresh bedding, towels,
Air-con was very good... handy remote,
Staff were pleasant,
Breakfast is fine, served 9am-11am... great if you want a lie-in!
Lovely bars, shops etc all in walking distance,
Loved the area.. La Carihuela is really nice,
Weather was fab,
Only negative... no lift,
We booked through Lowcost holidays (once again)....
no probs ;)

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are the best.

stayed here from the 4th oct til 9th oct and i was pleasantly surprised with what i had payed for, the rooms were clean and friendly, the staff were very nice the location was right in the main street of a busy throughfare and was so close to all amenities, the hotel is rated 1 star which i was happy with as to me and my fellow travellers it should be more, breakfast is a roll and tea or coffee, but you are in an area where breakfasts range from 3 euros to 7 euros, torremolinos is 1 of our favourite places as you are central to torre city center and close to benamadena, a short walk and your on the train to malaga which opens up new places for you to visit, the cabello hotel is a cheap hotel with good rooms and friendly staff lovely views if you get a room at the front, would i go back to the cabello ? there was 8 of us and everyone agreed yes without a doubt

Room Tip: book the front rooms

I found the hotel to be spotlessly clean, staff were very helpful.My room was a twin room single occupancy although it didnt bother me that it didnt face the sea. I spent more time sat outside the hotel people watching. Met some lovely regulars that stay at the hotel (Paul and Pam from Newcastle and Ann an Jo from Liverpoo) who were happy to chat and give me advice on how to make the most of the area, which I did!. Loved my stay so much Im going to book again for next year.

For a 1 Star Hotel it is great, location is perfect central between Torremolinos town and Benalmadena and 50 meters from the beach. The staff are really pleasant and helpful and you get a nice continental breakfast which can be served outside if you wish. the rooms are a good size with air conditioning and cleaned every day, and linen once a week. For eating out the choice of restaurants is endless, we are just back 2 wks ago and have re-booked for next May. Thanks again " Cabello".

Loved this hotel. The rooms were fine. Sadly - we didnt get one facing the sea. The location was excellent and the bar are was great for people watching and reasonably priced drinks. The only blip was a stag party who mad so much noise one night that i didn't sleep at all. This isn't the hotels fault but maybe its not a good idea to allow stags to stay as in such a small hotel - noise travels! The breakfast was simple but tasty and I would definitely stay again! Exceptional value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea.
