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.

Another excellent stay!

Just returned again from the hotel after a fabulous fortnight! Once again the service was superb from check in thanks to Javier and the reception team! But once again throughout the Hotel everyone could not do enough to make our stay a very pleasant one. Food was up to the usual standard with a very good wine list too, and this time we tried the Andalusian Restaurant which is well worth a visit during your stay. Thanks to everyone and we are looking forward to returning in 2016!More

Good welcome to hotel, poor last day

4 of us booked this hotel for our recent holiday on the 13th September for one week. Our arrivial at the hotel at 10pm was very welcoming by Lucas, glass of champagne given to us. We were advised dinner was over however we were provided with a cold meat salad which was very thoughtful. We had requested two rooms next door 5 months previously and were given 2 very close by to each other. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated, unfortunately there are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room which was slightly disappointing for a 4 star hotel; tea and coffee have to be purchased from the bar area. Service in the resturant was good and food was well presented and tasty. Our only compliant during the whole holiday was the last 2 days. I had approached the reception staff the day before our departure and asked if we could book one of the rooms on the day we left as we were not due to fly out until late in the evening. I was informed I needed to come back the next morning, I asked why that could not be done now and I was informed they were unsure how many rooms they would have left; it was early evening and about 12 hrs before the morning, I said that I had not had a problem in the past and that waiting until the day of departure was a little inconvenient, I was shrugged at. I went back the following morning early, the receptionist the same young woman I had spoken to saw me coming towards her, she started to speak to her colleague in Spanish saying' here she comes demanding a room', what she had not realised was I spoke some Spanish and understood what she was saying, of course the reply to me in English sorry we have no room but you can have a shower later in the day in the room we provide. I had not at any point been demanding and I found her unprofessional behaviour disappointing. For the manager who may read this my room number was 053. To say the least our last hours was spent roaming around in the main reception area waiting for the coach, had we been allowed to book the room it would of been spent differently. To add insult we spoke to a couple who had been allowed to keep their room on and had spoken to reception an hour after us.More

Sunshine holiday

Just back from a week on the beautiful Costa Del Sol had fabulous weather 36 degrees. Stayed at the amazing Riu Nautilus situated right on the beach front. Could not fault it one bit. The staff were very friendly & welcoming the food was fresh & very Andalucian a good variety every evening. You can also eat in the Ala Carte restaurant at no extra cost. The hotel manager got involved and was always around giving his time to the clientel & chatting. Customer service was second to none nothing was any trouble & always done with a smile. The hotel was very central, a walking distance to Torremolinos & Benalmadina. A short local bus ride took you up into the mountains & the beautiful Mijas. My only dissapointment was my day trip to Gibraltar. I thought it was very run down & dirty. One trip i would not repeat. Overall i had a fantastic relaxing holiday & i would definatley return to the hotel. Very happy customer.More
