The fact this was our third visit here says it all, as we generally don't stay in the same hotel twice.
The hotel is extremely good value for money especially if you book in advance. Last year we had the B and B option, but were so impressed with the food we took the half board option this year. The dinners were as good as the breakfasts, and what I like especially about this hotel is that the dining room is open until 10.00 at night, thereby allowing you to have nice drink in the bar, go down for dinner at 9 and then have a leisurely meal without being rushed out as they wanted to close as we have found with other hotels.
The rooms have a fridge (but no kettle) hairdryer, safe (additional cost) free wifi, easy chairs and coffee table which is a real bonus as its not easy to sit and read propped up on a bed. There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and the rooms are serviced well/
The hotel has all the conveniences and facilities of a big hotel but due to its decor and furnishings has lots of character too.
Last year it rained non stop but there was still lots to do with a swimming pool, sauna, loads of sofas comfortable chairs, etc in the reception area. Thankfully this year the weather was better and we even got to sunbathe.
The hotel is right on the beach and there are lots of cafes, shops etc next to the hotel. There is a taxi rank outside that will take you up into the centre of Torremolinos for about 7 euros, and there you can find a bus and train station as well as the centre itself. If you wanted to walk, it is up a steep incline but there are shops you can look at to ease the walk. We tended to take a taxi up and walk back down.
If we can find a good deal we want to return to this hotel in July as a base to explore the interior of Spain.
