Our only minor gripe was that the hot water in the shower wasn't warm enough, apart from that I can't think of anything that annoyed us. I'm not saying it's a luxury hotel with all the mod cons and I'm sure other people have found things that are not up to the standard they were expecting but I really don't know why it doesn't have a higher rating. If like us you like a good clean quiet hotel in a great location then this will work for you.
We booked this hotel for 2 nights based upon previous reviews. Never been to the Torremolinos area before but this hotel isn't in the centre, it's located on the Torremolinos/Benalmadena border in the Carihuela area, a nice 15 min walk to Benalmadena Marina along the promenade and in our opinion the hotel is in a great location. We arrived after 10pm but was warmly greeted, there is someone around all night even in the off season. The hotel is a lovely looking property, not like some 60's high rise hotels that are common along the coast. It's in a great location as it less than 1 min from the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. Some were closed for the winter months but plenty were still open. Parking on site is a big bonus as it can be difficult to park even when we were there is in the off season. A simple but nice breakfast is available after 8.30am, it's included in the price and consists of tea/coffee, orange juice, warm roll with jam/marmalade and muffin. It's served outside on the lovely terrace when it's warmer but we ate it inside in a gorgeous old room. The pool looked nice although the weather this time of year can be quite chilly so we didn't use it. It's not a luxury hotel but very clean and comfortable, we had a good sized room with a nice balcony, lovely sized double shower (no bath but that suited us) and could've easily of stayed longer. This hotel does the basics right, it doesn't have the touches you would get from a higher rating hotel but look what you pay compared to elsewhere. We only slept in the room so didn't care if it didn't have a flat screen TV with English channels or Wi-Fi in the room (Wi-Fi is available downstairs in the lobby/dining area). The staff were very friendly and helpful.Overall I would say this is a lovely clean, quiet and comfortable hotel in a great location and offers excellent value for money.
