“Would go again”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and the location is good with a bus stop and supermarket close and only a short walk to the beach. There are not enough sun loungers with some being broke. The evening meal is kit and miss and if you have kids I would not go half board. But I loved the area and will go back and will stay at the hotel again.

A 3 star hotel which we found to be a comfortable hotel near to the beach and the paseo in Torremolinos. the room was on the first floor reached by either stairs or a lift(depending how far we had walked that day) the room was very clean and our small terrace looked out the back of the property so noise was not an issue.Being on the first floor we were able to get WiFi in our room as the hotel states that WiFi is only available in the public rooms.
Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly.The breakfast which was included the in room price was sufficient and well presented.
Overall we found the hotel to be in need of a "make over" and it was value for money .

Stayed here for new year. I was so glad i did, This hotel is amazing. It is so clean and the service is great. we checked in to a lovely room with a balcony. The reception can't do enough for you. There is a huge super market next door so you can stock up on the wine lol. The breakfast is very good and on the day of leaving we needed a late checkout until 6 pm and they let us for FREE!! I have never had this before. I would always stay here if i was to visit this area again. Miss this hotel Miss out!! Well done guys you are fabulous ;-) Best Kris

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and could not be more helpful nothing was too much trouble and the hotel is spotlessly clean. But definitely not a three star. Rooms are extremely basic and have the feel of a budget apartment rather than a hotel. Lighting in room and bathroom is very poor and there was no mirror in the bedroom. Bath towels were not changed throughtout our stay. We stayed on a B&B basis so can only comment on breakfast which was poor. The hotel is situated very close to a noisy main road in a very run down area. I would not stay at this hotel again as I expect more of a 3 star. But if you are looking for a clean and friendly budget hotel then look no further.

This small hotel is clean and functional with exceptional staff. It is just a five minute walk from a beautiful promenade, from which you can walk for miles in either direction. The breakfast was of reasonable quality and quantity but the dinner we tried was disappointing, there are however, plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity. This is a perfect hotel for families or couples looking for a budget smaller hotel.

We stayed in this hotel about four times a few years ago, and saw it gradually going downhill - we weren't surprised to find that it had closed down at the end of 2012.

However, it has now re-opened, and the transformation is amazing!

The whole building has been re-decorated, and now has a light, clean. airy feel to it.
The pool and garden are immaculate, and the reception/lounge area seems much more spacious and welcoming. The terrace at the front has some nice tables and comfy chairs, rather than the usual plastic rubbish, and is a pleasant place to spend an afternoon in the sun. The bar prices are remarkable for a hotel - €3.75 for a pint and a half of lager, served in chilled glasses.
Although we were staying in a different hotel over christmas, we visited Los Arcos almost every day for a couple of drinks, and to use the free wi-fi.

We wish Esther and Antonio every success with their new venture, and we will definitely be booking Los Arcos for our next holiday in May!
