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.

2nd stay was great

This was my second stay at this hotel, the first time I went with my mum, this time I went with my husband. We booked direct with the hotel and flights from our local airport with easyjet. Check in was quick, the guy on reception remembered me from my last stay, our room wasn't quite ready however we did arrive at 11.30, we only had to wait for 30 minutes. The room as before was well allocated with a side sea view, well decorated, stocked mini bar and the prices were not too bad. The bed are twins pushed together but this wasn't an issue, but a double would of been nice. We had the later sitting at dinner which suited us well, the food at both dinner and breakfast was of a high standard and wine by the bottle well priced (11 euros for a decent rose rioja). You are allocated a table for dinner which you sit at each night, for breakfast you can sit where you like. The weather wasn't great and the pool very cold, I think I saw two people in it during our stay, this could do with being heated. There is a fab place to eat when you go out via the gate at the back of the hotel (Go left), it begins with F but I can't remember the name, the food there at lunchtime is great and good value. Overall we had a great time, this isn't a place for young couples, we are in our mid forties and we were one of the youngest couples there, the entertainment was geared to the older generation, but we were tapping our feet. Overall a great short break and I would go back.More

Good start to November!!

Hotel was in a great condition after its recent refurbishment. Managed to get a front facing sea view room which was excellent with great views of the pool, promenade and beach. Standard of food was excellent and on a par with my experience of other Riu hotels. The bedroom was kept extremely clean. Evening entertainment was of a high standard and was well attended by the guests. The outdoor pool was cold, but this was November!! The indoor pool was very small considering the size of the hotel. Very conveniently situated and easy to visit many places by public transport. Would visit again.More

super holiday experience

This was our first visit to the Costa Del Sol for 12 years, we chose this hotel because of its position, and its excellent reviews and we were glad we did. The hotel is right on the seafront at one end of Torremolinos, very close to the marina in Benalmadena. The walk either way along the seafront is lovely with loads of bars, restaurants and shops. It is a large hotel, the reception, public rooms and pool area were all excellent, looking very fresh after a makeover in 2013 I believe. Our room was on the 2nd floor, we paid the extra for a partial sea view. The room was lovely, well decorated with loads of space and with all the wardrobe and drawer space than we needed. The bathroom had a walk in shower, with oodles of hot water. We were on a half board basis, the dining room was buffet style. We were on the 2nd sitting for our evening meal. The choice and quality of the food at every meal was just fantastic, and certainly deserves all the splendid reviews from previous reviews. Finally the staff. We found them always to be cheerful and very friendly and a real credit to the hotel. All in all a fantastic week at this exceptional hotelMore

Wow factor!

This hotel certainly has the wow factor! Set right on the beach on the border between Benalmadena and Torremolinos, it could not be more convenient. The hotel was refurbished some two years ago and is now superb. Small parking area in front of the hotel, but plenty of space in the neighbouring area. Foyer is wide, open, bright and welcoming. Rooms were excellent, clean, tidy, small balcony with semi-sea-view. Well stocked fridge, good wardrobe space, comfortable beds, walk-in shower - really good facilities and very competitive pricing. Superb garden and pool area leading down the beach promenade. But best of all - the restaurant, what a set up. Fantastic presentation and selection of food at both breakfast and dinner. Really looked forward to dinner each evening - it was a special event. On one evening we had an "a la carte dinner" in a small comfortable dinning room. Good selection of wines. Staff were simply marvellous. Entertainment each evening in the bar area, generally it was very good. Bar service was just a bit slow, room for improvement. Would I go back - certainly, no hestitation.More

Good location , food , pool but for Older adults

Hotel RIU Nautilus , very good location . The best points of this Hotel are : Very nice pool , easy access to the beach , ***** Great food ***** ( breakfast and especially dinner is really excellent ) , Clean and quiet rooms , good value for money . I like closed pool and spa but it was not the best for me . it is really a 4 start Hotel and service with helpful staff. Whom I suggest this Hotel to : Most guest are older adults so I suggest it to couples more than 50 years old. ( No children ) Weak Point : Free internet only in Lobby and Only for 90 Minutes a day in one time Connection. Paid internet works well almost everywhere.More
