I stayed here with a friend in the Summer and it was great. We got a taxi from the airport which took us to the door (hotels on a main road) and upon check in we were really impressed with the lobby. The desk clerk allowed us to store our luggage as the room wasn't ready which helped! There's a rooftop terrace with pool & bar which was nice after a long day. There's a shop over the road and the beach is very close. Cross the road and walk down the slope in front of you, turn left and over the zebra crossing. Keep going & turn right for shops or left for beach! Lovely place to holiday and the hotel was the perfect base for us.

There are a lot of good points about this hotel. Firstly, the satff are excellent, always smiling and very helpful. The reception area is very comfortable and the facilities, such as the gym, sauna etc add to it's considerable appeal.
However, it is slighly let down by the room standard - basic, but comfortable and the food on offer, whilst plentiful, does lack variety and imagination and the breakfast dishes were often the wrong side of warm. The location on the main dual carriageway may be off puting for some too.
That said it is centrally located to the beaches and main drag, it is a short (uphill) walk to the train station and it is right beside the bust stop for the regular 110 bus into Malaga city.
Overall I was happy with it and would score it a 7/10.

Just returned from 3 nights at this hotel as a couple and we loved it. It's very nice and the staff friendly and very close to the beach. The room was nice and clean with a lovely view of the sea cause was at 8th floor.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 806 but 808 has much better view

We had a weekend break here and i really enjoyed it ,the hotel is very clean and the reception staff very helpful .We had a double room overlooking the pool which was nice .The pool area is very nice and the bar served nice beer in frozen glasses really refreshing after a day in the hot sun The breakfast was sufficient but as with buffet style food does go a little cold .The hotel is in a good place although a lot of steps to get to the beach for us not a problem but would be for anybody with walking difficulty's. I would definitely stay here again and hope to do so very soon.

Have just returned from 3 nights at this hotel and was very happy with stay there. Hotel is situated on busy dual carriageway which can be noisy at times.The foyer and reception of this establishment is what lends itself to the 4 star tag whilst all other facilities can be considered 3 star.The reception staff are extremely friendly and are quite happy to converse in several languages and will take the time to speak to you and their service cannot be praised highly enough. The lifts to the floors are very small and can only take 2 persons and luggage. The room facilities are good and clean and include free safe in room with pretty simple operating instructions. (Incidentally the green button you need to reset the code is located on inside of the safe door frame).All rooms have a balcony with furniture and all look out to sea albeit across other apartment blocks.Good air conditioning unit in room. No coffee making facilities available so take your own travel kettle etc. Fresh towels daily and rooms are cleaned spotlessly. Small swimming pool, spa bath and sun loungers are on the first floor roof terrace.We booked bed and breakfast and the continental breakfast was very good buffet style with lots of choice including fresh fruit,fresh yoghurt, cereals, juices, toast,croissants etc but the cooked breakfast was pretty poor. Eating out in the area was fairly expensive so half board would probably have been the better option for us. Check out is at 12:00 and our flight was not until 21:00 but the staff let us leave our bags until departure to the airport which was extremely kind of them. All in all a good base to stay and handy for all facilities including the beach and we will return at some point. Good value for money and can be recommended.Take train from airport only 1.70 euros and get off at Torremolinos (a 10 minute stroll downhill from station to hotel) and not Montemar as google maps will tell you to do.

Room Tip: Rooms 209-213 look like they do not have anything above them so no early morning noise from above as...

Stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Princesa Solar. Hotel and rooms very clean - looks like they have been refurbishing, Good room facilities, mini bar and digital TV and digital safe. Entrance a bit strange (looks like it has been something else and altered) and only place nearby to park is the municipal underground car park which costs around 10 euros a day so just be aware. Breakfast was good but found the croissants not very fresh. The lifts are very tiny - 2 persons and luggage and they are full so not really adequate for the size of the hotel. Used the gym facilities but no air conditioning and the fan wasn't much help. The staff from the reception to the cleaners are all very helpful and welcoming. Our room overlooked the pool and was very spacious with comfortable and clean beds.

Really good hotel in Carihuela. Stayed 5 nights . Very good staff on reception and room service. Great food, - dinner matches the 4 star label.

Good clean room has fridge /mini bar, modern digital TV, nice sea view and a FREE digital safe - it is brilliant. Pool deck one floor from street level has over 30 free luxury cushioned loungers , parasols, and a nice bar area , PLUS a great free hot tub and jacuzzi. Fantastic. Most guests wandered off to beach for the spanish sea 'an sunshine sizzle, so the hotel deck not used that much, and the location to sea front and promenade is good, one busy road to cross, assisted by a countdown traffic controlled crossing almost in front of hotel. Staff eager to help guests watch big screen euro football in bar area and they were quite sporting about England.

Negatives include bland breakfasts but nice eggs, the busy breakfast corner, everyone converges on toast, coffee , juice all positioned in same corner of restaurant so expect to be jostled. The road the hotel is on is one/two streets back from all the action, a good thing for some. The road its on is run down a bit . Road noise an issue for the pool deck but can be drowned out by your I pod and the pool bar /restarant bar only did bottled beer, not draft. The Spanish waiters say "draft beer is finished" , - so re- start it then!. Can charge bar and restaurant wine etc bills to room so i did it to next door's (joking)

But these are minor glitches, the positives shade the lot. I'm a big fan as the hotel works hard to please, its on a great strip of costa del sol between the 2 big guns of torremolinos and benalmadena. So its location at la cariheula serves the well used promenade, spanish restaurants , great tapas, and good english bars very very well. When the sun shines as it does there but not here, there's no better place at the price if you stay at a hotel like this.

Great .
