Great location to watch the sunset or rise. On the beach with access to the bistros/chiringuitos and bars. The property can use updating in the rooms and decor. It is quite noisy and the majority of the guest are English speaking tourist over the age of 40.

Average stay. Over priced.
We booked a room with partial sea view but was allocated the rooms over reception car park. It was very noisy with bins getting emptied early every morning. When asked if we could get a pool view side hotel said we had to pay 235 euros extra. Despite having already paid £550 for the week stay and they wanted an extra 235 euros is not justified. Reception were not very helpful saying you just what you pay and if you have issues contact your booking agents. Sun beds were uncomfortable and there were lots of flies around the pool area which was watered every morning and made it very muddy to walk in. Breakfast was very basic and bland with food only lukewarm. Only good point if this hotel is the location but there are nicer hotels in the surrounding area. Won’t be returning to this hotel in future.

Great location
Great location & our room had 2 balconies. One to side & one to front so the views were amazing! Loved watching the sun rise each morning over the sea. Our room was a good size but did need some TLC. The maid came each day cleaning & replaced towels as required. We did not book breakfast as reviews seemed a bit negative. We ate out instead which suited us. We LOVED the roof top bar. Relaxing with stunning views. The pool area again needed a bit of TLC. The beds were very old and uncomfortable & some were broken. We went to beach each day instead. Over all a good stay.

We went bed and breakfast and a a sea view. The hotel is very friendly, very safe. The whole area is safe and is close to the Marina. We ate in the Marina but it is expensive. Go in the opposite direction and you will find much better choice and prices, lots of choice. The food in the hotel was canteen standard but the food at the bar was excellent (don’t know why it is different). We enjoyed our visit here

The location was perfefect. Right by the beach and beach restaurants. Torremolinos shopping itself was a 30 minute walk along the beach or a ten minute cab ride. The room was excellent, clean with an ocean and pool view. The breackfast was good but not great. The pool area was a little run down and could do with updating. I recommend this hotel.
