Reviewed 13 October 2013

This is one of three hotels called the Sol Dons, that share lovely gardens and extensive facilities just a very short walk to the great beach with a wide/clean promenade. Our room on the 1st floor was somewhat 'compact', but was clean with comfortable beds, slightly noisy air-conditioner, and had a balcony overlooking one of the nicer outdoor swimming pools that was pleasant enough to swim in at the beginning of October. They had live entertainment every evening for those who enjoy this, and an abundance of comfortable lounges that are shared with guests from all three hotels. Free WiFi is provided in the bar/lounge or you can use either of the 2PCs at 50c for 5 mins - familiarise yourself with their keyboards before you insert your money! There was a good variety of hot as well as cold food every evening but one of the waitresses demanded immediate payment for the drinks you ordered so be prepared! Breakfasts were OK with something for most guests. We enjoyed our week at the hotel and can recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: As you would expect, the best rooms are on the higher floors and facing South, but you have to pay e...

I am just back after a week in the Hotel with 2 friends. I have stayed there previously. The facility is well positioned across the road from beach. There are plenty pubs and restaurants nearby although we were half board, food is very good, staff very friendly and helpful, I am not usually one who uses Hotel entertainment but The Jersey Boys were brilliant. If the chambermaid could hand in the bottle of DKNY I left there it would be a bonus!!!!

I have just returned from a week's holiday at this hotel, having stayed there twice before. It is part of a lovely complex of 3 hotels with really good amenities, especially the pool areas. The staff are really friendly ( apart from the occasional one or two ) and they work really hard. The food is very good with plenty of choice. Sadly, the last 2 days were spoilt by the arrival of a very large group of Irish holidaymakers who took over this lovely peaceful hotel. As it was such a large group they were obviously very noisy and the pool area became their own party area during the afternoon. I had to leave the hotel both afternoons as I couldn't stand the noise. I do hope this is a one off as I would like to return to this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: We had a quiet room at the back. Wouldn't reccommend ground floor.

Dear Debbyworgan,
Thank you so much for choosing the Sol Don Pedro and for taking the time to review it on Trip Advisor. I am really glad that you enjoyed the hotel so much. I am sorry that the relaxed atmosphere was somewhat spoiled on the last couple of days by the music group. It is not typical of the experience at the Sol Dons and I hope that you come back and enjoyed the usual relaxed atmosphere again in the future.
Thanks again.
Kind regards,
Jaime Floyer

Back from a week at this well established Torremolinos hotel.
Great location minutes from the beach and lovely grounds which link into two other hotels that make up the complex.
A smashing happy hour staggered over the three main bars and free wifi in the public areas which actually works.
Rooms very clean and comfortable with fridge and flat screen television with English channels.
Staff were polite helpful and friendly and it is possible to book a taxi from reception pay there and give the receipt to the driver.
Food was better than fine, the breakfasts were top quality with loads of choice, dinners maybe a little less so but still good.
Why not a five?
Unfortunately twice in the dining room we discovered cockroaches on the floor and on one other occasion a roach in a public area. To be fair staff dealt promptly with the problem but it did take a bit of the sheen off the break.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over the pool area lovely views

Dear martybare,
Thank you for your review.
I am so happy that you enjoyed all the aspects of the hotel so much. I am devastated that it should have been marred by seeing cockroaches. We go to great lengths to ensure that, between rigorous cleaning and an extermination programme, these insects do not appear; I am sorry and I hope that it did not take away too much from your otherwise enjoyable holiday.
Kind regards,

Lovely hotel with friendly staff . Lovely clean rooms with views over the beach . Restaurant very busy but the staff were amazing . A good variation of food with chefs serving up different meats every day, there was also an Italian corner which my daughter loved . Anyone complaining about the variation of food available at this hotel would never be happy with anything . Lovely pool area with plenty of sun loungers . Great location as this hotel is on the beach front so good for long walks along the beach to work of all the food we ate .

Room Tip: Rooms higher give the best views .

I stayed here with my fiancee for 10 nights 19th-29th September.

When i arrived it was midnight and obviously dark we had arranged a transfer so when we discovered we were first off we thought oh god where are we staying as the hotels around didn't look great but when we got to the hotel Sol Don Pedro i was impressed with the grounds walking towards the hotel and when we arrived in reception it was spacious and well decorated considering the hotel isn't brand new it looked in great shape. The member of staff who dealt with us when arriving was helpful even though she was very basic with English.

The room itself was very nice we didn't expect a grand room because we only were using the room to sleep in. The TV was 19 inch approx and it had a few English channels which was nice e.g. sky news, channel 4, BBC one... We weren't there to watch television though.

The room was clean and the cleaners always seemed keen enough to clean the rooms if you left they cleaned the room well and left the belongings as they were.

The bed was ok it was two singles pushed together... They were on wheels i don't know how to describe it but it was a bit annoying sometimes as the bed would sometimes go apart but we put the bedside table either side with the chair against it to stop this from happening so it wasn't a problem.

The shower was nice and powerful...

We had a safe which was 2 euros a day and a 5 euro deposit not to bad really just for added security.

The staff were helpful when we wanted information on where certain places where we wanted to go like the selwo aquarium with dolphins and the crocodile park...

The beach was probably about 40 metres from the hotel which was convenient and there were many places to get water and snacks if you wanted them practically on the edge of the hotel.

The restaurants around the area where great would recommend ciao Bella and el gato.. they were both really good... The hotel food wasn't great lunch and dinner weren't great and the food lacked flavor and sometimes was not hot enough. We enjoyed the breakfast but we didn't think it was worth going beyond bed and breakfast (We were half board) we didnt get a drink with the evening meal and had to pay for it which was a tad annoying. I wouldn't listen to other people saying the food was excellent as it was very basic and tasteless i like good food...

The pool was fantastic and was very clean and you could always manage to get a sunbed easily.

There was quite a bit to do if you were staying a week but not 10 nights...

There are quite a few nice bars

It is easy to get to the train station 10 mins from hotel to go to benalmadena and malaga etc.


I would highly recommend staying in the Sol Don Pedro as the other hotels in the area around the 3 hotels are tacky. We both really enjoyed the experience and our stay but go to any of the sol don hotels (marco pablo and pedro) as they were fantastic...

Thanks very much for a great stay

Thank you so much for your review. It is very complete and, as with the previous review, very helpful for future guests.
I see that all was not as it should have been in the dinner during your stay for which I apologise. We will make sure that the food is back to its usually much-appreciated quality.
Thank you again. I sincerely hope that you choose Sol Don Hotels again for a future holiday.
