We'll be back!
We booked this hotel last minute and are so very pleased we did. In honesty- we originally planned to go to the riu Costa del sol and it sold out for the dates we wanted, but this hotel came in at a close second. We were worried about torremolinos, as many people had warned us against it but we absolutely loved it. The hotel is not in a busy, hectic area- if you walk down the road towards the beach then you have lots of restaurants and bars/ cocktail bars. We liked the fact that the hotel was half board and therefore didn't feel guilty for drinking in different places. It's a 5min walk to benalmedina and it's great. More shops, restaurants and bars. Even an Ice Bar (review tba) The beach is beautiful however is incredibly packed and therefore we did not go in it very often. We did however, make use of the water sports such as peddle boats and the "UFO" mattress which was €10 per person. The hotel is nice. It's modern, clean and very purple. We did find the reception area a little clinical but it was still nice. The rooms were a brilliant size, very large comfy beds and rooms to move around and get ready in the evenings. TV has a range of TV channels. I personally had a little problem with not having a plug socket by the main mirror to so my hair, however there was a plug socket in the bathroom for it. The bathroom- WOW! I've never been in such a good shower on holiday before. It was a large walk in shower room almost and was just brilliant. Shower gel provided on the wall. I was disappointed that the minibar was not stocked in the fridge. Guests were required to call for the mini bar. Sunbeds- it's true that you have to get up early to get a sunbed, no they do not throw towels off. We were able to still get decent beds between 8.30 and 9. Some people on here have said 7am and that's simply not the case. It's not a problem to drop your towels after breakfast, there are plenty of beds to choose from. The pool- the pool is a great size and good temperature. However, I feel it's a "no fun allowed pool". No inflatables or ball games are tolerated in the pool. At times we were a bit concerned to splash as the pool area was very calm and quiet. Food- we loved the food. Breakfast was out absolute favourite. Lots of choice and tasted fresh. There were continental options, cereals and lots of cooked choice and salad. We didn't eat lunch often as we went to a local super market for a baguette but the food at the snack bar was good and quick service. Dinner was nice too, lots of options for vegetarian. We recommend if you have a glass of wine every night then buy a bottle. They will keep it behind for you to finish on other nights. Drinks are nice, cocktails fantastic but cheaper outside of hotel as expected. Entertainment was good. Low key mainly but the Motown night was absolute class! We loved it. We couldn't recommend this hotel anymore for perfect location and a peaceful relaxing day time. Constant cocktails throughout the day. Great for couples of course as it's adults only. We found staff friendly and helpful. They work SO hard and such long hours. Our next stop will be riu costa del sol but can 100% say we'll be back here again.More
Good. Just a few things would improve to make it 5* for me
Bad points first: Room towels were tiny. I'm a size 8 and the towels barely covered my behind. I felt sorry for any 6ft people Evening buffet was like a canteen. Exactly the same ambience as breakfast with bright lights, close together tables and fast service. You had to pay to use the safe in the room Half board generally. If I come back to Torremolinos, I'll go B&B. They are so, so many places to eat around the hotel you are spoilt for choice. Unfortunately the hotel only does half board Good points: Breakfast served 8 to 10.30 and good Good free WIFI Very clean, modern hotel Entertainment not bad Ole, the included speciality restaurant is good food although service a bit abrupt Location: great left and right of the hotel. Easy walking distance to shops, bars etc Drinks: very good. Especially the Aperol Spritz. Large spirit measures Sun beds go quite quickly but the ones on the beach are more comfortable and only €10 a day for 2 beds and a shade Tips: bring your own hairdryer as room one typically poor Ring corkscrew if you want to buy wine from the supermarkets just doors from the hotel as most are cork not screw topMore
Great Holiday With My Wife
We have had a look at this hotel when we have been on holiday at the Riu Belplaya. We decided to book a holiday at this hotel and we were not sorry when we arrived.We were greeted by the reception staff who were very friendly and asked us if we wanted a glass of wine or orange.They told us were our room was what floor it was on and gave us a lot of information about the restaurant and the hotel.Our room was on the third floor very spacious and great views of the sea and mountains.The hotel has two swimming pools one indoor and one outdoor.The restaurant was very clean and the food was great,the staff are very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble.The manager was very helpful and friendly.He used to be the manager at the Riu Belplaya.Their is two bars at the hotel, the hotel is Adults Only and half board you have to pay for your drinks and any room service on the day you check out.They have entertainment on but only at night.We only stayed a week but we will be coming back again soon.Before I forgot there are lots of bars and restaurants and shops near the hotel,but there is no music blasting out all night.More
