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.

Views to die for with a 'pool view' room pay extra

Second visit. Location couldn't be better for us. Pubs restaurants galore on your doorstep. Beach 2 min from back gate.

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.

Very good value for money

Pros: The position is great and we left the balcony door open a little and could hear the sea Didnt go in the pool but it looked clean. The rooms are cleane
Cons: They are refurbishing the Hotel so I hope that includes the down stairs bar as it is not very inviting .
Location: The marina is only 10 mins stroll and on the promenade you can walk for miles in either direction .
Stayed for 5 nights , Didnt have pool view so we had no sun on our balcony , but we were out all day and at night it wasnt warm enough to sit out so it wasnt a problem .

A favourite to return to

Stayed again in Feb 2016. Always book a sunny side/garden/pool view for rooms where sun gets on to the balconies. Can usually get a great discount from the booking websites like this one. Breakfasts are buffet style and never changes from year to year, but plenty of options to breakfast out. Rooms are clean and tidy if a bit basic and dated but cleaners are in and out every day and everyone we have met has been nice and helpful. Had some problems with room location this year as had my elderly mother with me but was quickly sorted out as was the delivery of a mobility scooter and kettle (charges apply)
