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.

Another great stay at Pez. I have noted comments on here about having to pay for a fridge/safe and lack of a kettle.......however, this only applies to those booking the cheapest rooms. For those paying a little extra to stay in the Club Rooms these items are provided free of charge, together with soft drinks. A lovely location, good food, free internet and nice clean rooms is the reason we stay here and Vanda at the guest relations desk has always been very helpful. Top Marks again for this hotel.More

The hotel was lovely and in a perfect location. The hotel is on the sea front with the back entrance leading out onto the promenade. We stayed in the main building of the hotel. The rooms were clean, a good size and modern. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel room! We had a balcony (which most facing the pool do) which was in the sun for most of the day. The pool was big but very cold (18 degrees) purely because of the time of year we went (1st week of May 2017). It was clean but not many people had used it because it was very cold! The bar served a good selection of drinks and food such as pizza's, panini's and sandwiches for a light lunch. I would recommend these as my partner and I ate there for lunch a couple of times. The bar was themed on Frank Sinatra which was a nice surprise, we later found out it had been themed that was as Frank had stayed at the hotel in it's early days! The staff were friendly and spoke good english. They had facilities for when we had checked out to leave our bags and we could access these at any time. They also had a rack of leaflets for local attractions. The hotel has an Animation Team which is aimed at the children during the day, however they had adult sessions such as wine tasting which was great. The ladies who ran the Animation Team were lovely and very friendly. The evenings had entertainment but my partner and I did not get to see any of this. Although the hotel was lovely and in a fantastic location, there were a lot of older people and my partner and I (who are in our early 20's!) were very out of place. 95% of the holiday makers were over 65 years old. It ensured the hotel was very peaceful which is a good thing! The age group could have been influenced by the time of year we visited, however most of the English and Irish pubs down the road were also heavily populated by older holiday makers. It wouldn't have been much of a problem, until one night when we returned from Benalmadena at 12:30am and we had been locked out of the back entrance - we had to walk round to the front of the hotel to get in! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone but it may not be as suitable for a young couple. If you want something peaceful, classy, comfortable, clean and modern then this is definitely the hotel for you.More

This was my 3rd visit in the last 4 years. Once again I was not disappointed. It was my partners first visit and she agreed that the hotel was great. The room was spotless and cleaned every day. The staff were tremendous very friendly and attentive. The entertainment in the evening was good and the bar prices not to bad, for a gin and tonic about 60 cents more than outside. Frankies bar a nice bar to relax in and the terrace outside overlooking the pool is very comfortable. Looking forward to visiting again next year. The area around the hotel is quiet at night and you can walk along the promenade without any worries. One word of caution though there are no tea making facilities in the rooms.More

Weeks stay May 2017
Booked this hotel at a weeks notice and we couldn't have been more pleased when we arrived . The hotel is very good and peaceful even though there was building work going on to extend the hotel , you wouldn't have known and it is due to be complete later this month. Really enjoyed our stay from the room , to breakfast and especially the position of the hotel. Will love to return.More

Nice hotel for a mini break with my mother
I had a 4 night break with my mother which was relaxing and enjoyable. Room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel. Reception was helpful when my phone charger was not working they charged it overnight for me on the computer. They were also helpful with directions to the market etc. We were half board, plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner. Drinks were reasonably priced and happy hour it was 2-4-1. Entertainment was fine, some acts better than others but that is to be expected. My mother enjoyed visiting Frankie's Cafe and seeing all Frank Sinatra's LP covers on the wall. Supermarket within walking distance and very close to the beach, we enjoyed lunch in one of the many places to eat and drink on the beach front. At the time of our visit the age group was mainly over 60's this could be due to the time of year rather than who the hotel aim there custom to. Well worth a visit.More
