7th visit to this hotel,which speaks for itself.the staff are so friendly and helpful,thank you Carmen and paco on reception always smiling and happy to chat with you.asked for high floor room and were given 8th floor with great views.food and drinks excellent for all/inclusive/ had the worst weather for march that I can remember 5 days of rain out of 7.but entertainment was laid on in the afternoons.only gripes were towels in bathroom wafer thin,and the carpet in the lounge is badly worn and needs replacing.but apart from that it was excellent.hope to see you all again soon.

This was our second visit to the Belplaya. What a different experience to the first time. Went for a week in July 2012 it was awful. It was a totally different experience this time. The food and staff were great. The hotel is spotlessly clean in all areas. We had a problem with electric key slot that was sorted within 30 minutes our request for more pillows was dealt with quickly. We e-mailed the hotel requesting high floor quiet room and is exactly what we got. Requested 2nd sitting for dinner and got it. The staff were very accomodating as you can tell. The only downside on the holiday was the weather but didn't stop us from really enjoying ourselves. We will go back again but next time for longer than a week in the spring.
Unfortunately visited in March from the 13th and experienced the worst weather we have seen in 15 years on the Costa del sol at this time of year. First time ever we have flown out of Malaga(wet and...
Unfortunately visited in March from the 13th and experienced the worst weather we have seen in 15 years on the Costa del sol at this time of year. First time ever we have flown out of Malaga(wet and windy 14 deg) and landed at Doncaster with better weather ( 14 deg and sunny!!!). To the belplaya, this was our first visit as we usually stay in Benalmadena. yes the decor is dated but that didn't concern us as everything spotless, our maid Rosa Vasquez kept our room super clean,gracias Rosa. We e mailed ahead and asked for a quiet room on a mid floor with a pool or side view and thank you Riu management for fulfilling this, we had room 410 which was directly opposite lifts, but as rooms so long this did not bother us at all. The staff were very friendly and smiling and welcoming. We were on all inclusive and as the hotel is mixed were provided with an arm band, drink machines on patio and in main bar.Recently stayed at a supposedly "better" Riu in Lanzarotte and their cocktails etc were all pre mixed from big tubs, however well done Belpaya as drinks from bottles and were much better,though not sure of full alcohol content as I don't believe I can drink that much ! However tasted like the real deal. The only slight niggle we had was food choices, not exceptional hot selection, especially at dinner. The 4 star hotels we usually stay at have been better,however they were not all inclusive so some compromise must be made. We both thought exceptional value for what we paid. As a couple we always found something that was good and didn't go hungry, but some fussy eaters may struggle.Entertainment average as always is in most Spanish hotels,being all inclusive though the cocktails made the evenings better as they went on!!!! Flamenco was very good. Easy to get sun beds and all in full sun ( for the 2 days we got it ) picked second sitting as we like to eat late and still got a seat in the lounge, though can imagine this will change in high season. All in all ,weather apart we both had a very enjoyable stay and will return if value remains.

After reading reports on trip advisor about the Riu Belplaya I was a little worried about going to this hotel but I was totally wrong. The room was a little worn and dated but who really cares you only sleep in them, needs updating hopefully the carpets are on the replacement list with the furniture. Pillows very hard, walls very thin you can listen to next doors TV. Lots of room for our clothes. Empty fridge in all the rooms, safe is 20 euro's deposit which is returnable when you leave, bottled water at the bar. The food was very good for an all inclusive - plenty of choice - lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses, Always hot. Enjoyed the English breakfast freshly cooked eggs great bacon beans and Spanish tomato's. The bar is excellent and we never had to wait to be served, you can also help yourself to wines, beer and soft drinks. The bar menu is not up to date, you can get Cava, Baileys, and some better brands of drinks from under the counter it you ask for them. Entertainment area holds about 200 people, not big enough for the hotel, Animation just one man Joshua he worked extremely hard. The pool area was spacious with plenty of sun lounges gets the sun all day, pool bar not open in the winter months. Pool towels from reception. Riu needs to provide free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel which you do expect to find in a good 4*. ( 1 euro for 30 minutes ) Not a 4* hotel more a 3*, On the all inclusive deal this place ticks all the boxes for a cheap and cheerful winter break in the sun.
Beautiful sunny days, and mild nights are what Torremolinos holidays are famed for. Typical summer temperatures can hit 30° Celsius or even higher, so bring plenty of light, airy clothes and extra sunscreen! Water temperatures are also very mild, in the low twenties, so paddling or swimming is particularly pleasant during the summer season when holidays in Torremolinos are most popular.
As UK, Courses or boosters sometimes advised: hepatitis A (not normally for package tourists).
