“Another great return visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We have just returned from our 8th visit to the hotel. We had heard before we arrived that the hotel was under new management and didn't know what changes to expect. We had no worries when we arrived we were met as always by Patricia and Belen and found all the same staff to be there.
Everything was up to the usual high standard that the hotel has always had. A few new little additions in the rooms such as slippers, toiletries etc. and believe that further additions are to be made. We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: If you like the sun request a room overlooking the pool.

Once again we have had a very good short break here. Lost count of how many times we have been guests here. We were a little apprehensive because there were new owners, but we needn't have worried because everything was excellent as usual , welcoming staff, spotlessly clean , good food and good weather. Will be returning at Christmas.

I have reviewed Hotel Don Paquito before and they always excel!
During our last visit I learned that things are getting even better .... new safety rails in the bathrooms, more complimentary toiletries, a toaster, hot plate and microwave in the dining room.
The food continues to be first class and the staff are just wonderful! If you haven´t been here before, you don´t know what you are missing. We go at least twice a year and I´m aiming for another visit before Christmas.

Room Tip: Ask if you can have a room overlooking the pool - that way you will have sun all day

Spent 11 days at the end of October/beginning November. Went prepared for cold nights and had a heat wave instead. The hotel has changed owners and as such there is a little uncertainty in the air. However, the staff are all the same and we were told no-one was leaving. The food was as good as always, hot and a good choice, the room cleaned every day and the patio and chairs were given a good clean when we were there. Little things have been changed like putting on a house wine, drinks lists more choice of jams at breakfast etc but nothing that affected us. Only thing wrong as far as we were concerned was that the pool was icy cold. Maybe the new owners will spend a little and heat it now. Having been three times now we are not certain if we would go back as a change if scenery would be nice but have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, either 2 singles or 1 double. Front overlooks the street and you can see th...

Stayed here for 1week, lovely small hotel,staff friendly, rooms cleaned every day, pool towels available, buffet style breakfast and evening meal,good selection of food but the hot food was only luke warm or cold, this was discussed with staff but nothing was done about it. It's a pity this can't be rectified as the hotel is one of the best we have stayed in and as good as any four star hotels we have stayed in, very good value for money and good location, handy for train and bus.

Have stayed in other hotels close by numerous times in the last 10 years
Decided to give the Don Paquito a visit due to the good reviews
Hotel small and friendly
Room on third floor was good for 3 star, clean and on the pool side so sunny balcony free wifi
Food was of good standard with plenty of choice, there was something to please even the most fussy eater
Dinning room small .felt like having meal in a restaurant very relaxed unlike the other hotels we have visited where the restaurant serve more than 1 hotel and were noisy and crowded.
Good bar just behind the hotel Chapos run by a Brit and his Spanish wife. TV if you wanted football etc and drinks and nibbles outside on pleasant nights.
Hotel was due for new management from November 13 so I hope it does not change as it is worthy of No 2 place of best hotels in Torremolinos

I have been to the Don Paquito hotel for over 20 times now, but I can honestly say that I was really disappointed by the service and the atmosphere within the hotel on my recent break.
1/ the food was well cooked but was only luke warm.
2/ the atmosphere within the hotel is really quite uncomfortable, due to the recent change over
3/ the standards have slipped, and there is no pride in the hotel.
