“Back again”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We keep saying we will go somewhere else but keep going back. Friendly, reliable and well situated for BOTH the Torremolinas beaches and the main town above can be reached by the winding street, the 140 steps next to the hotel or one of the two lifts.(30c/50c). Bed and breakfast possible the best deal. Breakfast is VERY comprehensive and there are lots of eating places on the front or in the town. Almost certainly we will be back next year!

Room Tip: Block B facing the pool suits us best

Green Features: Very friendly efficient reception. Helpful staff all over with many who have worked there for a long time.

A brilliant location right on the beach with magnificent water views from the balcony
Pool bars and spa are excellent
Beautiful walk along the water with great restaurants and some nice bars
Front desk help is courteous and efficient and great for arranging transport
Rooms are spacious and well appointed for total relaxation
Great variety of hot and cold buffet food served for breakfast lunch and dinner if you don't want to go out
So close to stairs up to San Miguel shops eateries and bars and a partial lift when in operation
Night life doesn't start til late and found the locals keen to help you join in the fiesta atmosphere
Mornings are slow and relaxing
I really enjoyed using this hotel as a base and will definitely use it again.

My wife and I are just back from a 5 night stay at the Melia Costa del Sol.
This was our second time staying at this hotel and while it was good last year it was even better this year.
We had a lovely room on the 9th floor overlooking the pool with a nice sea view.
We are Melia Rewards Gold members and therefore were able to have our room until 4pm on the day of departure, this was great as our pick up time for the airport was 4.30 pm.
The hotel was very clean with a nice new sunbathing area added since our visit last year.Our room was cleaned daily and the housekeeping staff couldn't be more helpful.
We were staying on a b&b basis and found the breakfast very good.
All the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
All in all this is a great hotel and we would highly recommend it and we will definitely return next year.

Everything is just fab!! We always go for long weekend Fri-Mon and this is just perfect. We leave Birmingham at 7am and are on the beach by 11am local time. Breakfast buffet is excellent (we have dinner in one of many seafront restaurants). The free beach towel service (in season) is brilliant (can be changed for 1 euro). Just cant say anything wrong about this hotel nor its location (for 2 people who love to chill on beach, absorb the atmosphere and enjoy the food - not sure if there is nightlife nearby for the younger generation)

Room Tip: For 1.75 euro get the train, don't bother with transfers/taxis. Straight out of the airport is...

We stayed in Melia Costa del Sol for one week in June 2014. We had a very nice vacation in Torremolinos. The hotel is not new, but is very welll maintained. Some furniture or carpets look dated maybe, but the hotel is very clean and some areas have been refurbished or renovated. The staff from the restaurant is amazing. They are able to deal with hundred of guest at the breakfast and diner and we never waiting more then 2-3 minutes to enter in the restaurant. The chice of food was amaizing, buffett for breakfast and diner was for every taste. It is good to know that the main restaurant is open for continental breakfast from 4.30-5.00 in the morning, if you need to live early you can serve the breakfast in the restaurant. The rooms are spacious, with all the amenities you would expect in a 4 star hotel and all the roioms have "see view balcony". The wi-fi was worked well, no complain. The only complain about the cleanliness in the room was regarding the ventilation grill in the bathroom. It was so dirty and full of dust ... Just a small detail who make the bathroom look dirtier that it actually was. All in all we had a wonderful vacation in Melia Costa del Sol and we would reccommend this hotel to all our friends. We done a lot of day trips from Torremolinos to Marbella, Ronda, Granada, Gibraltar, Malaga, all reachable by bus or by train.

Room Tip: Higher floors have wonderful views.

Hotel clean and well presented, but dining facilities do not match the hotels reputation. Breakfast is just one Bun fight where there is no respect for anyone who tries to get food or drink, toaster not working properly bread still came out not toasted and it was elbows out and push and grab what you can was the main thought of the guests as they pushed there way to the food bars and the staff were not at all interested in attending to guests with disabilities needs.
Evening meal was well presented and a little more sedate much better than the mad bun fight at breakfast.
My advice would be stay at the hotel but use the hundreds of places to eat across the road on the sea front, more choice of food as I have found the standard of food has not changed in the hotel on a few visits

Room Tip: higher up and away from lifts

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us on TripAdvisor.
We greatly appreciate your feedback , we are sorry that you also had some disappointing comments to make regarding our breakfast service . Please rest assured we have taken all your points on board for immediate consideration as this was clearly not up to our usual Melia Hotels International standards. We have been fortunate to receive many complimentary reviews specially for all our food and beverage services, since the hotel's opening .

Loved this Hotel. Reception well staffed, staff very helpful. We had trouble with our w/fi and had to go to reception repeatedly, but staff never seemed to mind. The w/fi worked well once connected. The rooms were spacious and cleaned and stocked everyday. We took the drink out of the fridge and used the space for our own drinks. There is 2 floors where there are ice machines and book exchange. The Tv had enough channel's in English to keep us happy, after all who wants to watch tv that much. It was a problem getting a Sun bed at the pool area. If u left ur bed for a couple of hrs to go shopping etc the towels were removed. We loved the food. Good variety. I made a buck fiz every morning. Well I was on holiday. The Hotel is directly across from the beach and on the promenade. There is a lift that takes u to the town centre, 30 cents, ask at reception.

Room Tip: The block to the left of reception appeared more updated.
