We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff and service was definitely 5 star, but the beds and pillows need some upgrading. The beds we had in our rooms sounded like a guitar player tuning his instrument, but really that was our only complaint. Thank-you Ricardo for introducing yourself, you are running a lovely hotel. We enjoyed the all inclusive meals, lots of variety and Spanish cuisine. We did not have hot weather when we stayed, but the sun did peak out for half a day, and we enjoyed sitting by the pool, and walking across the street to the beach. The desk staff helped us with maps and costs for traveling by cab and train. We arrive quite late on Sat, and they had food set out for us in the dining area. Thank-you sooo much. Over all a great stay, but I can't give it a 5 star, comparing to other 5 star hotels I have stayed in. Would I recommend this Hotel.......yes!

I went in February ’15 when the weather was unusually cool and windy. I also picked up a virus, probably on the plane, and wasn’t very well for the bulk of the holiday. This meant I wasn’t feeling very sociable and didn’t have much appetite. Neither of these were the hotels fault! The Hotel is at the quiet end of Torremolinos right next to the beach. The nearest rail station is La Colina which is about a ten minute ride from Malaga airport station and it is then around a ten minute walk to the Hotel. Obviously you can take a taxi from the airport. Upon arrival you are greeted with a glass of orange juice while you check in. My room was clean and comfortable. There was always plenty of hot water and the towels were changed regularly. I was at the side of the hotel which didn’t have sea views but was it was quiet. When I stayed there were a fairly even split of English, German and Spanish guests and a few other nationalities. Mainly older couples as one would expect at this time of year. The Hotel has a large bar with comfortable chairs but it was hard to find a seat most of the time. The entertainment was typical for Spanish Hotels and so I was happy to sit in the reception area or the outside terrace where it was less busy. The dining room was large but rather busy at times. In the evening you have a designated table, and sitting, but at other times you take pot luck. The food was very typical for Spanish hotels. I was pleased to see they had a vegetarian option but this was not very exciting. One evening the option was “various vegetables”! There were always plenty of salads but the vegetables tended to be overcooked. The cooked meat and fish looked good to me although I didn’t try them. There were also various cold meats. They had Paella one night which looked very good. The deserts were the usual sweet cake-like puddings, ice cream etc. I was disappointed in the fruit which wasn’t that good but this may have been because it was out of season. They did have a better selection of cheese than I have had at other Spanish hotels. Breakfast was a standard mix of cooked and cold food. They provided coffee in flasks but it wasn’t particulary good. Hot water was available for making tea. If you were on All Inclusive, and most of us were, then you could help yourself to beer, wine and soft drinks in the dining room. They will also give you bottled water at the bar although they didn’t tell you this so it was a few days before I found out. Even at the bar the coffee was from a machine and had that taste of over-strong instant which seems to be standard in Spanish hotels and contrasts with the coffee served in cafes and bars which is usually excellent. There is an outside bar but this was closed during the winter. They have a large outdoor pool but due to the weather no-one used it during my stay. It was surrounded by a large number of sunbeds. The best thing about this hotel, however, was that it had an indoor pool. Not huge but adequate enough for a relaxing swim. Not many people used it so I often had it to myself. There is also a basic gym. The staff were professional and mainly friendly. I would say that this was a well run hotel. One annoyance, but a common one in Spain, was that there was no free wifi and, if you paid for it, it was only available in the reception area. I didn’t see any computers for the use of guests. So all in all a typical Spanish holiday hotel: nothing bad about it and nothing outstanding. I booked through Hotels.com and was only paying around £35 a day all inclusive which was very cheap. At that rate the hotel was exceptional value for money.

Spent a week here, an excellent hotel in a convenient location - staff were very attentive, room, restaurant and public areas all very clean. Restaurant food was of a high quality, lots of choice and attentive staff. Didn't experience the entertainment so can't comment. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again!
