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.

busy hotel

Having booked a platinum holiday with Thomsons, we were disappointed to find we were dumped at the hotel door at 10:30 in the morning and told to return after 1pm when the rooms would be ready. We had no sunscreen as this was packed in our cases and thought the idea of a first drop off was to allow you to start your holiday sooner. We were faced with a nippy receptionist (Isa) who was less than helpful until Marcel the manager stepped in and had a word in her ear. Apparently this is Thomson's fault as they book the earliest and cheapest departure slots in UK, considering returning visitors would be on our flight we couldn't understand how the rooms vacated by them would not be ready!! The air conditioning is switched off from 2am - 7:30 am which is not ideal and doesn't make for a good nights sleep. Food is fine, sometimes quite basic but always something even the fussiest can eat. You can always get a sunbed although they are packed quite tightly. Café on site is good value. The hotel is very clean. Entertainment aimed more at the elderly guests The pool is always warm and never too busy. Location is fine if you like a busy area, the strip at night is so busy even walking a short distance is daunting.More

Really smart hotel

We have just returned from a very nice break at the RIU Nautilus in Torremolinos which is a very nice hotel to stay in and up to date which is more than most hotels in the area. The staff are always helpful and friendly,the only complaint is we asked for a low floor with pool view but we were allocated in a room at the back with a view over a street where it was over looking another hotels loading bay ! We found out that Tompsons clients get the cheapest rooms apparently so check this information because I could be wrong.If you don't want to pay for over priced drinks just across the street is a great bar called Toms Tavern which I can recommend as you are made very welcome and the price is a lot cheaper and the measures are good too.We would recommend this hotel every time as the RIU group of hotels and resorts are the best you could stay in as far as I can say.More

We have just returned from two weeks at this beautifully clean and modern hotel. I cannot find fault in any of the amenities made available to us. Rooms were exceptional and kept immaculately clean by very attentive housekeeping staff. The choice, variety, and quality of the food at all times was fantastic, as well a a superb level of Service by Javier, Marcel and all the waiting staff in all the bars, entertainment and poolside areas. There have been a number of comments raised previously regarding sunless which is just not true! We were able to get a lounger at any time every day of our holiday! (14 in total, and we are not early risers!!!). The location of the hotel is perfect with many Restaurants and bars located immediately on leaving the front or back of the hotel. Prices for snacks and drink in the hotel are very competitive and good quality brands. I will definitely return in the future for another great stay with the friendly and courteous staff at the Riu Nautilus!! P.S if you want a table outside, do not be afraid to ask as they WILL accommodate you! P.P.S wearing of dress short trousers is authorised in June,July,and August due to the heat.More

Excellent hotel

This is one of the best hotels I have been in. The rooms were spotless very clean hotel, the food was good and the pool was warm i used the spa everyday.I am definitely hooked on riu hotels and will be going again. The only down side I payed Thompson £132 extra for a limited sea view I got room 240 which did have limited sea view but unfortunately I also had a view of the side road with bins right under my window which didn't smell to good . The best rooms had pool and sea view for £132 i would expect one of these rooms but this don't get offered by Thompson so how do you get one of these? I would never pay extra to Thompson again I would wait till I get there and ask to upgrade.More
