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.

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

Dave S,

Really great stay!

We have just had 14 nights in a fantastic hotel! Big room, massive shower, comfortable bed. The manager and staff actually seemed pleased that we were there and we will definitely go back again, hopefully later this year.More

Another excellent Riu!

Currently spending our last day at the hotel after an excellent weeks stay. A lovely modern hotel with fantastic staff and gorgeous food to suit all tastes! Our rooms were big with extremely comfortable beds and huge walk in showers which are fabulous! The entertainment isn't at all bad... Loved the Flamenco Show! We would like to thank the Managers & all staff and look forward to seeing them all again in June(Can't wait!)More

Mixed Feelings

The hotel is perfectly situated near the port on the Tori stretch and has an excellent outdoors area as well as indoor spa/pool. The food is pretty good and the staff seem friendly, which counts for a lot these days. If you're under 50 then you'll probably feel a little outnumbered here, the 'adults only' policy means that it's more peaceful and civilised than normal but it also means that it's not very lively. I have no idea why they have the Disney channel on TV! Don't let the staff bully you into doing what you don't want, a number of travelers like me were asked to take a sitting at the restaurant at a time which wasn't convenient - for their own convenience! You'll also have to pay €5 per day for WiFi (scandalous these days) and if you want peace of mind then you'll also have to pay to 'rent' the safe which is already in your room (rip off). On my booking direct with RIU I asked for a high-up room with some sun, which I didn't get. Despite being in the annex, I was still only on the 2nd floor. it would seem they don't listen, then. On top of this, my room wasn't cleaned until 1.30pm which is wholly inconvenient. However, all said and done, I would probably return. It's just a shame I can't, because I can't bring my young family members.More
