Reviewed 7 August 2014

Just returned from this hotel which we have visited for many years now and love the location and hotel.
It is kept to a very high standard of cleanliness with rooms cleaned daily.
The grounds are immaculately kept.
The food choice is plentiful at breakfast and dinner with staff constantly removing used items.
The Games team team are a friendly crowd and certainly make playing the games fun, however the variety of games this year seemed very minimal. We have visited this hotel at all times of year and my husband loves playing shuffleboard and shummie ( not played this last week) . Instead it was table tennis (played in the afternoon sun mainly) ,water games or volleyball on the beach which seemed very energetic with the heat.
There are plenty of sun beds for all and umbrellas available.It is good that you can use all 3 hotel facilities, sun terraces and pools. My one complaint would be the people who go and put towels on certain beds and then disappear. Yesterday was a prime example where a couple put towels on beds plus having an umbrella before 10 am, never returned til after 5 pm and then never sat on the beds at this point. You have signs round the site asking people not to reserve sunbeds but perhaps introducing a policy of checking when beds have not been occupied for a period would be good like another hotel I know of.
I look forward to returning to the hotel but perhaps at a different time of year.

Room Tip: Even room numbers looking out towards Malaga,

Dear Anne K,
I really appreciate your kind comments regarding your treatment during your awful stay with your mother at the beginning of the summer. I know that the experience was very upsetting and I can only imagine what it must have been like to go through the ordeal in a foreign country. I am only glad that we were able to alleviate a little bit of your distress.
Please let us make a date for a happier holiday once your mother is strong again.
Please wish her all our best for a full recovery.
Kind regards,
Jaime Floyer.

Dear Roller12345,
I am delighted that you have returned to the Sol Don Pablo and that you have enjoyed your stay yet again. Thank you so much for choosing us and also for your review.
I am glad that your son enjoyed the Mini Club so much. The entertainment team do a great job and I know that it can be a real boon to be able to go off to a nearby terrace away from the noise to have a couple of hours of quiet R&R. I believe that having 9 pools and all their sun terraces makes it quite easy to find a spot to everyone's liking.
We hope to welcome you back agin in the future.
Kind regards,
Jaime Floyer.

Just returned after a week in the sun with the family which included a 14 month old. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It catered for all our needs, and was exactly what we wanted. The hotel is spotlessly clean inside and out, and is obviously kept to a high standard decor wise.

It is situated close to the beach and within walking distance to the old town-via the lift approx 400 meter from the front door of the hotel.

The rooms are spacious, with a seperate seating area and balcony, which is handy to entertain a youngster. The bathrooms are big enough with a large walk-in shower and a marvellous power-shower.
Each room has a fridge and air-con, which are a god send.
(A TIP, take a clubcard or something similar to place in the card slot in the room, or the air-con and fridge will go off.)

We were there as half board, and it was ideal as we didnt have to leave the complex until dinner time. The food wan very nice, with plenty of choice; to cater for all. We were only there for 7 days, but the food was different everyday.

The only negative for me was that the drinks at the restaurant and the pool bar were expensive, compared to the shop which was 1 minute away.

The complex has a number of pools, with 2 ideal for young kids. There are plenty of sunbeds, and no need to get up early to reserve a bed. There are also set of beds which are under a canvas roof, which gives all day shade.

A very good hotel, which caters for all. I would say it is mostly aimed at familys and older couples.

I recommend this hotel, and would return with no hesitation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Torremolinos.

Dear Goughie7,
Thank you so much for your in-depth review of the Sol Don Pablo. I really apprecieate all your positive comments and also take on board your comment regarding bar prices. We will never be as cheap as the shop outside the hotel but we have frozen most of the the prices over the last few years in order to keep competitive. We will keep your comments in mind when studying prices for next year,
I really hope that we see you again in the future. Thanks again.
Kind regards,
Jaime Floyer.

What a Hotel part of 3 really Quality Hotels in the one group - We were in the Don Pablo and would say it is the Best - Rooms were cleaned daily and great beds.
Food in the restaraunt was to really good - Lots of choice for Breakfast and Evening Meal.
The Grounds and Gardens are well maintained and the Pool areas were Brilliant - The best part is that its accross the road to the Beach.
Well done Staff - We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms on the high floors have great views

This was a last minute holiday . The hotel was really good. Food was excellent. Pool area was fantastic. Would defiantly go back . The rooms were very typical Spanish. We had a walk Inn shower which looks new it was lovely. The lifts were a bit of a problem at meal times as everybody uses them. Hotel entertainment was good some nights eg four tops tribute act ildevo tribute act was good. We had a great time.

We used this hotel as a base to visit friends who were living and staying in the area. We didn't really use the facilities or the food options available so cannot comment on them. We had room only basis for our stay which was perfectly adequate for our needs. The room was a good size, decent bed, balcony, plenty of storage and a well-equipped bathroom. The shower area was large and we suspect that it had replaced a bath at some stage. Car parking was a bit of an issue as the hotel parking was rather expensive charged at 18 euros a day and as it was peak season, street parking was not easy, although we managed to find a space each evening - eventually. The in-room safe, should we wish to use it, also had a charge. A major issue for us, was that the free Wi-Fi in the communal areas was absolutely appalling and we had to go out to other cafes/bars to access their Wi-Fi. The engineer did try to resolve the problem and one of our phones had access, very slowly for a brief period of time; at no other time did it work during our 3 night stay. Overall, this hotel served its purpose for us, and if we were intending to visit friends again in the area, we would stay there again.
