Another great stay and excellent local car hire
This Hotel manages to maintain very high standards every time. With regard to local car hire - we were very impressed by the the service provided by Marymar car hire which is situated directly across the road from the rear of the Riu. The proprietor Victoria is very helpful and pleasant - with very good English. Prices are good - and the service was superb. Highly recommended.More
A very pleasant hotel
When we booked in the receptionist was very good and welcoming.The bedrooms were of a good size and the breakfast had a lot of choice.I found the mattress to be too firm for me though this is only a personal observation. We had a problem finding the gym and indoor pool and on this occasion found the reception staff unhelpful. Our first meal was on a Sunday night and found the choice poor and the veal inedible. However during the rest of the stay the evening meals were very good with plenty of choice. The hotel is nicely situated for Benalmadena Marina and is in a lovely area just inside the Torremolinos boundary.More

Myself and my husband have just spent an amazing week here at the Nautilus from 30/03/17.This hotel is possibly one of the best we have stayed in and beats a 5 star we stay in regularly in Tenerife hands down .We booked fairly late with Thompsons and knew exactly what we had paid for as described a standard room with no sea view .We checked in at approx 9pm check in very efficient with a glass of bubbly we got second sitting at dinner as I had requested via email directly to the hotel Due to arriving late an excellent cold Buffett was provided in the dining room at 10 pm .As stated by other guests we were in the annexe attached to the main hotel .We had room 63 on the ground floor overlooking a pleasant garden area however if we turned our chairs around on the balcony we could actually see the sea !!! We were grateful the room didn't get the sun as the weather was really warm and our room was constantly cool without the need for air con The room was beautifully furnished large and spacious immaculately clean ,also with a beautiful large bathroom with large walk in shower .The food is fantastic with an excellent choice both at breakfast and evening meal there is something for everyone We ate at the Ole a la carte restaurant one evening which is free.iIn some hotels we visit there is usually a charge of approx â¬14 per person again a wonderful meal you need to book this as soon as you arrive as it shuts Sunday and Monday The dining room can be busy in a morning but we never struggled to find a table as stated by other guests the tables at dinner are very close together but that didn't bother us as we had lovely guests either side of us .The staff work exceptionally hard from reception cleaners//dining room/pool bar /the lifeguard was lovely such a gent always assisting guests with.their sunbeds / umbrellas All the staff were pleasant polite helpful and professional at all times an absolute credit to the Riu chain of hotels .We caught a taxi for â¬7 up to the cable cars in Arroya de Miel what a great day the cable car is â¬14 per person the views are breathtaking from the mountain top we were lucky enough to see the falconry show at 1pm Fantastic!!!! Be aware though you need some decent trainers on your feet if you want to do the couple of walks around the mountain We also took the ferry from Benalmadena and spent the day in Fuengirola . Fnally Please ignore the negative comments about this hotel such as guests didn't get sweets left ever day by the maid or no sun on balcony after. 2pm if that's all you have to moan about its Pathetic!!! This is a fantastic hotel you won't be dissapointed .More
I couldn't wait till I got back home so I'm sat round the pool writing this getting here was a total nightmare instead of arriving in the morning so we had all day in this beautiful hotel we got to the hotel around 2pm with more issues but I'm not here for that. We got to the hotel and everything ran smooth check in was quick and was greeted was champagne or orange juice,we went to our room and it is modern and very clean I asked if we could be but in the main building which we were and even though we didn't ask for a sea view we have a very good view of the sea even if it's not a direct straight in front of you one. Every area of the hotel is spotless and clean. Food is really good i can't fault it. Staff are really friendly and always happy to help. They helped me hire a kettle which can be done at reception. We also needed help as i blowed our adapter and needed a new fuss. The hotel around the pool is quite but if you go out on the front of the prom its really busy. It is mainly the old dears at the moment here so come on young people get here it's for you guys as well. The shop to the left of the hotel when you come out is very good sells everything and not badly priced. Hope this helps More
