Quiet area close to beach - terrible food

Located close to the beach and clean surroundings. Hotel staff very helpful and polite. The rooms were worn out and furniture looked old. Travelodge rooms are slightly better quality. Several light switches on the walls so it's difficult to understand what does what, as half of them do nothing. The balcony light did not work so had to sit in the dark in the evenings. Bathroom is nice and clean but not modern. Overall the rooms were fairly clean but given the price paid I was fairly disappointed overall as everything felt old. The worst thing about the hotel was the food. We had half board and the quality of food was terrible. I'd rate the food a maximum of 2/10 so do not waste your money going half board. No drinks included. Squash was included for breakfast but the glasses provided were so small that they were like shot glasses. You had to have about 10 glasses just to quench your thirst. Overall it is a very bog standard hotel and nothing to brag about other than the location and sea view. Clean rooms and ok beds. It's basically a Travelodge but more expensive.

Lovely hotel with everything you need.

Pros: The rooms, the aspect
Location: It is very well located close to the beautiful marina and Torremelinos. There is so much to do.
Lovely large room with balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Very clean. Breakfast very nice with plenty of variety to choose from- good quality cooked meats and cheeses, cakes, cereals and yogurts . Lots of choice of bread and French pastries, doughnuts and churros. Plenty of sunbeds and activities for the children. Well stocked vending machines with medications and other essentials. A lot of Spanish staying there which meant the entertainment was mainly aimed at them. A fantastic experience.

Really pleased with our stay

Pros: early check-in. clean towels daily
Cons: I couldn't get the free wifi to work. Shame it rained throughout our stay which is no fault of the hotel
Location: Plenty of bars and restaurants open in surrounding area, even in late season
Checked in early without any problems before noon which was brilliant as we had an early inbound flight. Paid for pool view and had lovely view of pool, sea and harbour. Free toiletries and clean towels provided each day. Nice surprise of complimentary bottle of fizz, water, fruit and sweets. Breakfast included which kept us going until mid afternoon. Can not fault our stay at all and would definitely stay again.
