Hotel Pez Espada  

If you like a bit of old-school glamour, look no further – Frank Sinatra and Sophia Loren used to stay here.

This was the Costa del Sol’s first luxury hotel. Back in the Fifties, it attracted the likes of Sophia Loren and Sean Connery. And it lives up to its famed history with a huge pool and great buffet dining scene.

The hotel’s right next to Torremolinos’ prom. It’s a five-minute walk to Benalmadena’s chic marina, and just a few minutes’ stroll to La Cariheula, the Spanish quarter known for its tapas bars.

Lovely stau

Had a fab winter weeks holiday here. Didn't really know what to expect as some of the reviews criticised the staff. The staff were fab, all friendly and all very busy. We had a problem with our room ( it smelt dreadful) they moved us straight away. A shame our room didn't get the sun, and definitely could do with an overhaul.. But clean and comfy. Food was lovely, couldn't fault it. Entertainment hit n miss... Cocktails were fab. Would definitely go back. More

As Good as Ever

Just come back from our second visit to this hotel and it is as good as ever. The staff, many of whom we remembered from last year, are very helpful and happy at their job, and nothing is too much for them. this year they were trying an animation team in the winter and Magda is absolutely superb, and her enthusiasm rubs off on all the clients, whether it be for playing games during the day or dancing at night. The entertainment is good overall and a happy hour 3 times a week from 8 to 9 brings down the overall cost of drinks. The place is spotlessly clean, the food excellent, and the restaurant staff work very hard. the location is superb as out of the back gate you are straight out onto the prom to get one way to the marina or the other to torremollinas. a short walk up the hill gets you to the bus stops for Mijas Fuengerola ,Malaga etc and If you get a bus card from the kiosk in Benelmadena you can save even more on the bus fares if you like to get out and about. a very pleasant stay and we would not hesitate to return.More

ab fab

I was really pleased with our visit. Staff were most helpful and always attentive. I would most certainly go again. It is only a short walk to Benalmadena marina and there are lots of shops and eateries in the other direction. A bus stop just up from the hotel will get you to the street market or into the centreMore
