Hotel Riu Nautilus  

Right on the beach promenade, the Riu Nautilus serves up great sea views and sand just footsteps away.

The adults-only Hotel Riu Nautilus is right on Torremolinos' restaurant-spotted promenade, just footsteps from the sandy beach. Benalmadena's upmarket marina is a few minutes' walk away, too.

This place had a total refurbishment for 2013. Rooms are dressed in plum and silver colours, and accessorised with modern prints, revamped bathrooms and big balconies.

A great Hotel

We stayed at the Nautilus for a week in March and found the Hotel up to the usual standard for a Riu Hotel. The management and staff are a credit to the company and we will see you all again in June. Why did the last reviewer think the Hotel was all Inclusive I ask ?More

Beautiful Hotel

Returned from the Rui Nautilis on Sunday. Absolutely perfect from the rooms to the friendly staff as well as location. Couldn't praise this hotel enough. The food was great, bedrooms lovely (spotless). Situated right on the beach with lovely walks in both directions. Hope to be back soon!More

Typical resort hotel

As we had not been to an all-inclusive type of resort in a number of years in the Carribean, we decided to try the Riu Nautilus while in Torremolinos to meet up with friends for 2 nights. We had a room with buffet breakfast included. The buffet was impressive to look at and had every type of imaginable item that you would want for breakfast but I found the quality of the items to be inferior to what we had experienced elsewhere. Our room was very nice ocean view which we had booked. Large and very clean. There was a nice balcony with chairs that we did not get to use because it was raining. Bathroom was ordinary and not updated. Pool area outside was very nice with lots of lounge chairs. Right on the boardwalk with lots of restaurants, especially fish and seafood. Lobby has free wifi but only for a limited amount of time. And there is No free wifi in the rooms. Pretty antiquated in todays day and age. You actually have to buy a time ticket in a machine in the lobby which is only good for one device at a time. 5 euros a shot and only good for 24 hours. Pretty archaic I must say. This was the only time we came across this in our entire trip in Spain or anywhere lately. Why not just charge a little more for the room and supply free wifi. This hotel seems to cater to a lot of elderly groups. A lot of Germans and Dutch as they kept trying to talk to me in those languages. Luckily for us the price was right for the 2 nights that we stayed. Don't know if I would stay here again. There is not really much to do in this town.More

Just arrived back from a weeks stay at this fabulous hotel. What can I say but wow! The food was five star everything you possibly want for breakfast and dinner. We had one night in the ala carte restaurant and that was five star also. The staff at this hotel were really lovely and friendly and marcel the manager was a very visible presence at all times. The hotel has been refurbished to an extremely high standard. We are already looking at another week here in March of next year for our winter break. I would defy anyone to find fault with this hotel.More

Very Visible Manager

A stay at this hotel really tested us and them as we arrived 10am room not vacated consequently was not ready for us so luggage and us sat around the pool./ When room was ready discovered that it was comfortable plenty of german TV Sky News or 3 old film channels. Now to the dinning experience this was very good catering for several nationalities the quality of food was really very good but i for one am prepared to try food other than chips and pies so was never hungry and a lot of it was freshly prepared the chefs always making sure you had as much as was required.and a fuss over you.The only problem was the table set out left us sitting next to different nationalities for the duration hence we spoke to no one other that the manager Marcel. That brings me to the next point Marcel was probably the most visible hotel Manager I have come across and this was not superficial he was a genuine multilingual person who always had a word and would list attentively and advise or help where possible Well done Marcel and thank you. The down side for us was out of 11 days holiday it rained 9.5 days requiring me to use the gym or hang around the Hotel which due to the weather became a little like a Retirement Home due to the average age of clientele this however was no fault of the hotel' In conclusion I am sure that given good weather and a smattering of german this Hotel easily can be classed as very good and in an excellent location,the renovation work carried out recently certainly improved it . and YES Marcel I shall be back to pester you again.More
