El Velero Apartments HolidayPosted Jun 1, 2016 on Hotels
Nice room and fairly quiet apartment apart from door buzzer switch matched the light switch causing some other guests to ring at all hours of the night.

Pros: The Location was good for city centre.
Location: Plenty to see and do in Torremolinos and surrounding area.
All the photo's shown on Expedia are old. The whole place is looking tired. Many in room facilities are broken and El Velero doesn't take cards, only cash.

Nice place to stay and conveniently locatedPosted Dec 29, 2014
My sisters and I stayed for nine days at the hotel and it was a perfect place to end our European adventure. After three weeks of riding trains all over Europe, this was a great place to relax and hang out at the beach which is within walking distance to the hotel. The room was cleaned once every few days and there is a nice kitchen area with a lot of cooking supplies. There is a great grocery store nearby, however my sisters and I spent a lot of time at the restaurant on the corner, Che Bolu, which is fantastic and cheap. There is also a bus stop nearby that takes people to the bottom of Spain where you can take a ferry to Tangiers, Morocco. That was a very long day but one of the highlights of our trip. My sisters and I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Clean, Modern Apartment Close to Town CentrePosted May 8, 2014
Pros: The apartment was quite big, roomy and spacious with a separate bedroom. Always loads of hot water for showering. Pool available for resident use.
Cons: Dump the disgusting 30 year old leather sofa with all the leather worn off. Change the rock-hard mattresses on the beds. Improve wi-fi signal.
Location: Apartment is close to the bus station and a short walk to the town centre.
I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the apartment as it had a spacious living room and kitchen with crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, fridge, hot ring and microwave. As the floors were tiled I heard some woman above me walking about with stillettos but thankfully they must have moved out after a couple of days as after that it was very quiet. The leather sofa in the living room is 30 years old and all the leather was worn off. This really detracted from the apartment as a whole which otherwise was in very good condition and tastefully furnished. The mattresses on the beds were unfortunately rock-hard so my sleep was not restful. There was an unheated outdoor pool available for resident use. I think there may have been a lot of chemicals in it as I had a bit of a skin reaction after swimming in it every day. The pool is also very deep with no shallow end so families with small children need to be very vigilant. The wi-fi was quite fast (5 Mb speed) but unfortunately couldn't get signal in the apartment so you either had to sit in the hall or the downstairs residents lounge. All the programmes on the TV were in Spanish, a couple of German channels and BBC News 24. The apartment is near the town bus station and a short walk to the town centre. There are several restaurants nearby if you want to eat out.

Good value for moneyPosted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: staff, cleanliness and spacious rooms
Cons: thin walls
Great staff, very polite and happy to help. Rooms are very spacious and cleaned twice a week. The swimming pool is kept very clean but it is not suitable for small children as it is very deep for adults too. It can get really noisy by young people coming back from clubs in the early hours. (thin walls)
