“So glad we stopped for lunch”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Spent a lovely week in Benalmadena returning to the UK last Friday. On an overcast Monday morning, my husband and I decided to go a long walk along the front into Torremolinos walking to the last hotel in the resort. On walking back we were both in dire need of a good lunch and luckily chose to view the menu of the Tarik Hotel. It looked appealing and so we were shown to a table in the bar area at the front of the hotel looking across to the promenade. There were two members of staff, immaculately dressed in hotel uniform, one male and one female and they were both welcoming and friendly even with limited English and limited Spanish between us. The food was first class and well presented and the prices were extremely reasonable given the quality of the food. We were so impressed that we decided to have a look around the hotel and the grounds and the gentleman at Reception offered to let us view a bedroom. The hotel is only two storeys high and has a fair sized rectangular pool with loungers and umbrellas on a grassed area around the pool.
If we managed to get a reasonably priced flight from Glasgow, we would certainly book direct with the hotel for accommodation and it's only a ten minute taxi ride from Malaga airport. A lovely wee hotel in a great location, a pleasant change from the bigger hotel chains. Well worth a visit.

Do not change, just stay the way you are! Nice staff, good rooms, excellent location, small and friendly. The breakfast was ok and the bar fine. The air conn was the only negative, it got to 29 degrees and the room was very warm overnight. Well worth a visit.

The Tarik is an ideal getaway for us, just 45 mins drive and we are on a superb stretch of clean beach, and a huge selection of restaurants and bars. The hotel has friendly efficient staff, a good hearty breakfast with plenty of selection, and a good swimming pool. I would always suggest paying extra and having a balcony and sea view, the rooms at the back don´t have either. It is good value for money, the place is very clean and well maintained and for a few days away, even a week if you are coming from overseas, you could do a lot worse.

Room Tip: balcony and sea view

I stayed in Hotel Tarik for 2 nights in May 2014 and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are a good size and are typically Spanish (tiled floor, wooden decor) withouth being "dated". They were very clean. The pool and sunbed area is quiet and is close to the bar. The hotel itself is within walking distance of good restaurants, bars and shops and is directly across the road from the beach. I will definitely stay there again when I return to Torremolinos.

This was only a one night stay to be near the airport. The room was a garden room. Basic but clean and comfortable, looking out to the pool and garden.

We were half board and the food was good quality with a reasonable choice for such a small hotel.

Hotel bar very pleasant with good service. All staff very friendly.

We would definitely use this hotel again for short stays.

A little apprehensive after reading mixed reviews on here but we had a fantastic time from arriving at reception being greeted by the wonderful Beatrice to the waitresses in the bar/ restaurant who were really nice, friendly and helpful. We thought the food was nice and a good mix each morning and night. Having stayed at the 5* sol principe where we queued for 45mins just to check in and then queued for food we will most definitely be going back to the Tarik again this year as the overall experience was brilliant, just what we needed for our relaxing break. Muchas gracias.

Our second time here as it was the perfect place for us last time we stayed. Spotlessly clean and right across from the beach, surrounded by nice beach restaurants and shops but just far enough from the centre of town to be peaceful...10 min walk to centre of town "great people watching bars on San Miguel".
Lovely small hotel so feels more homely, quiet and reserved than some of its larger neighbours....all the staff we remember and loved from last time from reception and bar staff "Maria", really friendly, helpful and happy to book you tickets and taxis ect.
we just booked in for breakfasts which are ok as the evening dinners come in for some criticism on here....but the food served in the bar is fabulous pasta, pizzas, mains ect all the best in town. we would go back from having a drink in town each night to eat in the hotel bar as the food is consistently great, a lot of the tourist restaurants are not good!
No fridges or tea and coffee, kettle supplied in rooms so you might want to bring a plug in kettle? and go for a sea/garden view or you might find your view backs on to the side back alley!
if you are unlucky enough to have a dull or rainy day....suggest doing your own day trip to Seville....don't go on the organised ones you spend hours picking up and dropping off...just jump taxi to Malaga 20E and a return ticket to Seville on the fast train 50E...cheaper in total than the coach trips and youll be there in 2 hours. The whole Seville smells of orange blossom, fabulous day out make sure you do the real alcazar much better than the Alhambra..! Or try the hamman, Islamic/roman baths in Malaga.... 60E for 2 people for an absolutely magical, beautiful, relaxing afternoon or morning...google image it to see the unbelievable interior...
we would always come back here...enjoy

Room Tip: go garden /sea view
