I travel extensively through work all over Europe.
I have to say that this is the best hotel I have stayed in for a long time.
The rooms are excellent. Housekeeping first class.
Staff helpful, pleasent and smiling.
Restaurant absolutely superb. Food was of the highest quality during our stay. Large choice of starters, soup, paella, pasta, cooked meats, fruit and desserts. Chef on-hand to fresly cook your choice of meat on the grill and at Breakfast he will cook your eggs to choice. Table staff were experienced gentlemen. Good bottle of wine for €9.50.
My tip would be to book half board.
There was live entertainment each evening in the bar area. This was usually one person with a guitar or piano, but was most welcome.
Lady behind the bar worked very hard, mixing cocktails for the customers. Typical cocktail was €7.
The hotel was not very busy during our February stay.
Right on the sea front and the promenade. Excellent beach-side bars/restaurants opposite.
Hotel right next to the steps and the path up to the shopping and town centre area.

Just two small negitive points - there was no tea or coffee making facility in the room - there were lots of channels on the TV, but only BBC World News in English.

Overall, we had a great stay and we will return.

Pay that little bit extra to stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We have just returned from a four night break at this Melia. This is a very large hotel with two high blocks overlooking the sea - directly on the seafront. Check in was quick, friendly and efficient - our bags were in our room before we were! The room was pleasant with balcony overlooking the sea and pool - good bathroom and was cleaned daily with efficiency.
Breakfast was buffet style - but would say there is something for everyone, including freshly cooked eggs. Dinner also buffet style - was adequate and plentiful with a huge variety of fruits and desserts. Waiters were very good at their job. We normally stay in sister hotels in Marbella several times a year - I have to say they may be more luxurious, but the staff at this hotel were exceptional and the price was extremely good value for money in comparison.
This is the first time at this hotel and we would definitely return in the off-peak months. I cannot comment on the experience during the summer.

FEBRUARY 15 to 22 ~ 2012.

Just stayed in room 810, it is a side sea facing room. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean, quiet and all in all, faultless. The hotel's staff are genuinely friendly and most helpful. Breakfast is a very good selection plus the chef will concoct eggs to your style. The Hotel's "Cafeteria" is great and quite well priced. The Bar has musical entertainment each evening. Free Wifi all over the hotel. (Access code changes every Monday)

I would recommend this hotel unreservedly and I'll definitely be returning, Torremolinos is great out of season (only snag is, there aren't too many restaurants open in the evening during early February).

Room Tip: High floors superviews & quietness

Book a room on the top 8th or 9th floors on the sunny left hand side of the hotel.This is not the pool view,as in Winter the sun has passed the pool by 2.00. The rooms and breakfast are a good standard and half board is usually in the cafe during the winter.This is due to the hotel being very quiet..The rate of 92 euros half board was excellent as we had steaks worth 16 - 23 euros on half board.(winter rate)....We stayed four nights which was long enough on the limited menu.The service was excellent.You can walk down the hill from Torremolinos station in 10 minutes if you have light luggage but the last 100 yards is very steep walkway down the rock face.

Stopped at The Melia for a short Christmas beak and what a nice lovely hotel The Melia is.

Tried many hotels in the area but this is the best we've stopped in, fantastic location while the rooms are large and with most having sea views.

The hotel staff from reception to the cleaners are all very friendly and the food is excellent with a good choice for both breakfast and dinner.

I really enjoyed my time in this hotel when I visited in May 2011. Hotel was really big and luxurious, all in while marble. Breakfast buffet was excellent, service was great and the location was awesome, right across from the beach. Of course I loved my view from the room to.... would definitely go back there and I highly recommend!
