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.

great hotel

Just spent a week at this hotel 03/05/2015 to10/05/2015. Check in was very quick and well organised. The staff were brilliant and very friendly. My room was a single occupancy room, it had twin beds, small table and chairs, plenty of wardroom space and very well maintained. Being a single room the balcony was small but still had two chairs and a side sea view. The bathroom was of a very high standard and a good quality shower. The dinning room excellent I have stayed at hotels that have had a slightly more varied menu but overall the quality of the food matched anything I have eaten elsewhere. The only down side I could see was that if you are on a family holiday there did not seem to be much in the way of family entertainment. Overall would I (a) recommend this hotel (b) stay there again the answer is a definite yes.More

Very Nice Hotel

After an initial upgrade cock up by Thompsons Holidays, the reception staff were great in sorting it out. A very spacious recently refurbished hotel it's well furnished. Whilst we were there the numerous sofas and easy chairs in the main hall were replaced with new. It's located 10 mtrs from a sandy beach. Our room was in the annexe overlooking the pool/garden; the room was very nicely furnished with everything you need including British TV channels if you want them and a fridge. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever-ever had in a hotel. The restaurant was clean and very efficient, food was varied, plentiful and a high quality. The bar was of a high standard and not expensive. Housekeeping both inside and out was excellent. The staff in all departments were polite, efficient and all worked very hard. One negative comment for the hotel management, is a lack of a room folder giving hotel and local information. I would certainly recommend this hotel without any reservation. (Excuse the pun) More

Great Visit

Just returned from this lovely hotel Our room was one of the older one's but immaculately clean and so quiet at night...some of the hall carpets need replacing and maybe a lick of paint to brighten it up Beautiful clean area's, staff efficient although sometimes seemed very dour, especially the older gentleman on reception!! Loved the grassy areas around the pool areas, thought 20 euros per pool towel very expensive, have never paid more than 10..ever!!! Not the biggest selection of food, but all well cooked and presented WiFi free in lounge area..need a password from reception Drinks very reasonable for a 4* hotel..9 euros for a jug of Sangria-and a happy hour!!!! Great outside terrace overlooking the sea..never stayed in the hotel for the entertainment but everyone seemed to enjoy it Fantastic position 10 mins either way to lots of bars and shops and restaurant's An older clientel makes this hotel peasant at all times, and we will certainly be September actually!!!More

Great stay

We stay ed as a party of 6 and allocated 3 different types oft room. The most modern of the rooms was located in the annex . This was our second stay and we still love the hotel quirks and all. The pez espadrilles is perfectly position and the only minor complaint is that the restaurant staff could do with a course in charm school. The food is very good and the drinks are reasonable especially during happy hourMore

Excellent Hotel

After reading the excellent reviews on this hotel I was looking forward to our holiday and we were not disappointed. We paid for an upgrade room with lovely views of the beach and sea. One could say that the Hotel is a little dated but that gives the place a lovely atmosphere. Food (buffet) is all you could ask for , service excellent ,staff and the cleaners are so cheerful greeting you every day. To the left lovely promenade walk to Torremolinos to the right a beautiful Harbour. Carihuela is a lovely area . The blue lagoon bar/restaraunt with Paco and Alex well worth a visit as with some of the local bars which supply you with free Tapas. Prez Espanda defiantly on top of my list.More
