Nice hotel in great area

..Stayed here the end of March 2013.. hotel sits on a main plaza just two blocks from the shopping street San Miguel, the train station and the gay bar area. Hotel looks to be recently renovated as everything is clean and shiny. Average but adequate pool area and enclosed pool on the roof with small gym and sauna. I took half board, the buffets were average, but there was usually one or two items that were nicely prepared. Overall, a good value and attractive hotel.

blue sea hotel

the location is brilliant, the staff works well with what they have. the bed spreads/throwover are not changed between each guest. the safe is 33 euro to use in the room. there is no iron in the room and we are charged to have our clothes ironed. the TV channels are all in spain, only able to watch CNN. we were also charged 33 euros to use the internet. there is no entertainment in the hotel apart from friday night. despite having a lovely area for this. no information is given to you on the day of arrival, about the hotel or the surrounding activities. the location is perfect and it is just 1.65euro on the train from and to the airport. i would stay at the hotel again but next time i will take my own entertainment, and bed covers. the food wasn't too bad, but there are a lot of restaurant near by.

Not four star

My stay at the hotel wasn't so great. It definetely wasn't four star, it needs to work on a few things. When my family and I first arrived to the hotel, the staff greeted us coldly. They weren't that friendly, it was as if they didn't care. When we got to our room it was nicely kept, clean and comfortable no problem there. But everytime we wanted to go to the pool, they never had any towels. Im talking about a week with no towels. Then if we wanted anything from the hotel, they would charge us for everything. My package wasn't all inclusive but I've heard a lot of complaints about the hotel food. So I suggest, you'd be better off eating outside than in the hotel, you will save a lot of money. The hotel itself was located in a good place though,a good distance to stores, beaches and train. We've been to better hotels. Overall, the hotel definetly needs some improvement on those things I listed above.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The restaurants in Torremolinos are good. You are better off eating outside than in the hotel. There are a lot of different varieties of food you could eat. There is chinese, italian, spanish, and argentian food. I suggests you go to a restaurant name Ciao its an italian restaurant located in Torremolinos (calle invisible) The food is delicious! A lot you can choose from and you will definetely be satisfied.

Leave the hotel and turn right to find numerous family run restaurants. Right across the street a huge and popular tapas/restaurant/bar that is open for lunch and then again for dinner.

Great location near the train station.

This hotel is in a great location for anyone getting the train from Malaga airport, just get off the train at Torremolinos and it's on your left about 200 metres. The hotel is a about 750 metres from the beach but that distance involves going down many many steps of you can take an elevator there for 50 cents each way. Only bad things about the hotel were no English speaking TV channels, there was no alarm clock in the room and elevators were a little slow at peak times neither really bothered me. Staff were efficient in cleaning the rooms and check in was quick and friendly. Hotel was super value and I would recommend it for anyone seaking a quite break in the sun.

Great Low Season Rate - So-so **** Hotel

At around $50/night, this typical Costa del Sol 'luxury' property is an off-season steal: centrally located, spacious rooms, friendly staff, wonderful breakfast. But it's an old hotel, and the recent facelift was done with no apparent attention to detail, and clean is an approximation at best. It suited my purposes perfectly, but someone looking for a few nights swaddled in modern luxury would be sorely disappointed.

The hotel charges an outrageous surcharge for internet. Fortunately, there's free wifi a couple of blocks down las Mercedes at the Belgian beer bar, and you can sample your favorite brewed beverages while you catch up on your email.
