Since we are vegetaians, there was not a lot of variety of foods options avaiable. This hotel did not have any laundrary/dry cleaning services. Wifi only available in hotel lobby.

Great locationPosted Oct 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel offers great value. Right beside the station for travel to the airport or to Fuengirola. Breakfast buffet is wonderful, hot and cold selection unmatched for the overall price paid for this overnight stay. Car parking a bit difficult, as hotel car park is a 200 metre walk. However, overall, really good.

OK quiet base hotelPosted Oct 13, 2012
OK hotel as a base as we did not spend much time in it, but it is not in Fuengirola, but in quiet area of Torreblanca (next to Torreblanca station) Restaurant staff very friendly and helpful with special dietary needs. Breakfast was pre-prepared, but enough choice of breads and a few fruits/cereals and enough hot food selection. Spanish/old style rooms, good size, view from quite a large balcony of mountains on one side and sea on other (in between buildings). 5 minute walk to nice stretch of seaside with friendly cafe on the corner directly down below, but not much else in the immediate area. However, could take bus or train to Fuengirola (2-10 mins away)- each comes every 20 mins though. Entertainment programme for older people mainly- bingo/live music. Flamenco show ok. Receptionist not most helpful in giving recommendations. Better to go Ronda by train to Fuengiorla and bus from coach station round the corner in terms of timing (think around 11.30am, and cost is slightly cheaper than train). If you just want to relax, mainly on beach, with a few daytrips, this hotel would be a suitable basic base, and has lovely views around the hotel. However, for younger people, or people who want to do more local sightseeing/go somewhere a bit more lively, go for walks along marina etc I would recommend Benalmadena or Fuengirola. Very easy to get to airport from train station (route with no stairs available! around corner from hotel- cost 1.90) but only runs till around 10pm.
Happy to recommendPosted Oct 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
I've stayed here a number of times now. I only use it as somewhere to sleep so can't comment on facilities or entertainment, it's rooms are clean and comfortable. A big plus is its right next to Torreblanca station and only 35min train ride from the airport. The staff are friendly and helpful. The beach is a 5 min walk, though it is quite steep for those who have mobility issues.

short break in spainPosted Jul 1, 2012
Location: so close to train station for transfers to airport and a walk to prom ,beach and bars. Lovely walk into Fuengirola along the front.
having stayed at this hotel 7 times we noticed a lot of improvements and upgrades within the hotel and food choice.The staff are always friendly and helpfull. The rooms are typical spanish and the added bonus of having bbc1 and bbc2 on the t.v. was pleasing. It is a walk up and down the hill to prom and beach, but the bonus of the train station( to and from airport) being only a 5 minute walk( no transfers required) makes this hotel easy to get to.

Hotel Torreblanca Review June 2012Posted Jun 30, 2012
Pros: Food, sun bathing areas, price
Cons: Limited Wifi, poor hot plates to keep food warm, ageing. Record Go hire cars are a complete rip off!
Location: Good location, only a few hundred meters from the beach and shops / bars
The hotel is ageing slightly as seen when even the sign on its roof is missing letters. The food is good although get to meals early as it quickly goes cold. The internet wifi is only in the foyer area. Bedrooms are confortable enough but I had to remove the waterproof blanket on my bed (not in the habit of peeing myself since I was 3) for decent comfort. Good pools for kids especially. Hotel entertainment not brilliant but good enough to give you an option. Car parking is down the hill 400m. It takes 2hrs to do the hotel transfer from the airport in Malaga! (Not hotels fault granted). Good, cheap and fair hotel which I would return to. Best bits - food and bathing areas. Most rooms have some sort of sea view.

A few days stayPosted Jun 3, 2012
Pros: convenience, parking and rail
Cons: Lifts at busy times
There is nothing dramatic about the hotel, I've stayed there several times and it is reliable. For me the price is right and it is very convenient, particularly the railway, I would hate to rely on the place entirely for food, not that the food is not good, the hotel does the best it can remembering the numbers it caters for.

Be aware!Posted Apr 28, 2012
Pros: Very efficient maids / cleaners
Cons: the feeling of "if you dont like it go elsewhere"
Location: Very good if no mobility problems
Certainly not 4**** and maybe just 3***. I booked 6 weeks in advance and asked for a room on the 6th floor or above and was given 3rd floor because "all 6th floor or above occupied". (See other reviews / advice ) on here. Although the room allocated was acceptable the bathroom had a shower that did not function properly. Most of the guests are elderly Spanish or German and there is little information to help you find your way around in the first few days. It has a feeling of a convalescent home. Just glad we did not book all inclusive as the meals are very repetitve and the only bar available did not seem to function until late evening. The lifts operate slowly and our record wait was 5minutes 23 seconds on one occasion. WIFI is only available on the ground floor but it is reliable Although very near the station be aware it is not easy to locate on arrival, if dark. I departed feeling sorry for the staff who had to try and make this hotel comfortable.

Good for a NightPosted Apr 1, 2012
We stayed at this hotel because of the price, which included breakfast and dinner. The hotel was in ok condition given its age. The refrigerator in the room didn’t work and the bathroom door handle was a bit tricky. That being said the room was big and had everything we needed for a night. The dinner wasn’t great, but for what we paid we didn’t mind. A lot of the hot food was cold by the time we got to it, so you may consider getting there early. Breakfast is very typical, everything you need but nothing that will blow you away. We were a bit disappointed there is only an outdoor pool and it isn’t heated. Overall we were satisfied because we just needed the hotel for a night. However, you would not want to stay at the hotel much longer than that.
