Great access to the nice and quiet mostly sandy beach and the promenade. Spacious rooms. The not so good: Very poor live entertainment,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 January 2017 via mobile

We have just driven in from Negs on a gloriously sunny January day. Parking in the port is easy and there is a beautiful port side walk to the city centre (10 minutes). If you like shopping this is the place for you but if you prefer museums and art galleries you won't be disappointed. There are so many eateries...

We were very impressed with this hotel. The staff were all excellent, food very good and great attention to detail on everything. It is ideal for older people or just those who want a relaxed, civilized and non rowdy holiday. We would rate this as good as probably all the approximately seven 5 * hotels we have stayed at in...

Just come back from 2 nights in room 282. I put the room number so that if anyone in management reads this they can get the a/c fixed. After the first hot night I mentioned it at reception and later that day they sent someone to fix it, it was tested after the repair and declared good. Another hot night...

We wanted to try this hotel following its extensive refurbishment. On arrival we were very impressed especially with the reception staff who were very friendly and efficient. On arrival at the room, we quickly dumped our cases and made it down into the restaurant prior to it closing for dinner. The food lacked a real variety of meat to chose...

My Partner and I first experienced Iberostar Hotels last October in Cancun and it was awesome. This experience in Malaga was as good or even better. The all inclusive package is the best value by far. The staff at the front desk, restaurants and other supporting staff members were great. Unlike chain hotels, this all inclusive resort offered, the full...

Room quite small, but very clean. Nice to have white linen on beds & fresh towels every day. Room on 5th floor with view over car park & the sea just over roof top. The area of Torrox is quite isolated, nothing of interest, just a few restaurants which were nothing to write home about. We were half board, the...

The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are very good, staff very good, facilities very good, food plenty of choice with good staff. The hotel is excellent except for the guest from hell, noisy families who are very loud and allow their children to behave as if they were on the beach. I feel this hotel will end up as a...

The recently refurbished IBEROSTAR Malaga Playa beach hotel is an expert at creating the best conditions to make you happy during your days of rest.

From the most romantic Suites to enjoy a couples getaway to apartments with a kitchen. And, of course, the best views of the sea or the hotel gardens make for the best backdrop when waking up in Malaga. And recently refurbished! A few steps from the beach. The IBEROSTAR Malaga Playa enjoys direct access to over a kilometre of beach at Playa Ferrara. So you can lie down on your sun lounger and bathe in the sun's rays while sensing the Mediterranean breeze on your skin. Flavours of the world.At this hotel for children on the Costa del Sol, you not only have the best local cuisine, but you can also travel the world every evening with the themed dinners. In addition, there's a surprise for those with a sweet tooth: the wonderful desserts buffet. It’s impossible to resist the temptation of something sweet! Totally refreshing. The huge pool at this hotel in Malaga Playa will entice the whole family in for a dip. The kids can pretend to be sharks while the grownups take advantage to swim a few lengths. There's also a pool with never-ending slides so that your kids can make a splash, and another indoor pool with views of the outdoors, and a special baby pool. Non-stop activities. In the evening, the little ones can't wait for Starky and Stella to arrive at the minidisco. During the day, your kids will never get bored at the Miniclub. They will play in the pool, dress up or do handcrafts. And for you? Dance performances, live music, and much more. Enviable temperatures. The best climate in Europe is here! The average of 18º C throughout the year and the mild summers make Torrox the best place to spend your holidays. In fact, you are likely to come across inhabitants that are proud to boast about the kind of climate they enjoy. The charm of Torrox. You can't leave without being captivated by the pristine white of its houses. A stroll around its stairways and precipitous streets will invite you to disconnect and spend the afternoon trying tapas in Constitution square, or to enjoy a few laughs with your loved ones. ... more   less
