The Marina Sur is a very pleasant hotel. Helpful staff( speak a little English) clean & welcoming.
About 5-10 mins walk to the beach front. Our room was on 9th floor which gave an impressive view across the town of the Mediterranean

We booked a last minute holiday to this hotel and despite having taken numerous holidays over the past 35 years this is the first time I have felt strongly enough to write a review. On first arrival the hotel seemed ok clean and staff seemed friendly. We had booked half board and cannot express enough how AWFUL AWFUL the food was. Badly cooked swimming in grease, cold and down right awful !!! . Felt extremely sorry for some guests who were on an all inclusive package. We had the odd breakfasts and ate out the rest of the time. We both enjoy traditional Spanish cusine so it was not that the food was not to our taste. The hotel is up a very steep incline and took a good 10/15 minutes to walk to the sea from which luckily had a good selection of very reasonably priced food. I would not class this hotel as a tourist hotel as the bar always seemed to be unmanned and there was not even background music playing. My advise if you want a cheap last minute holiday in this area book somewhere else because you will end up paying extra to eat out if you come here !!!. On a final point the towels and bed linen had a very strange sour smell !

Room Tip: Book another hotel

Good 3* hotel located 10 min walking from the beach and 15 min from the center of Torremolinos.
Rooms were nice and spacious, cleaned every day. Good view from the balcony and a pleasant pool.
Breakfast was fresh and with plenty of variety.
Staff were very friendly and helpful about absolutely everything.
Good sleeping quality, no noise at night at all!
Would reccommend! Good price and quality.

This hotel was quite comfortable but needed some updating. It was clean and quite pleasant and the staff, on the whole, were quite friendly. There was a good view from the balcony and a nice swimming pool and seating area outside. Breakfast was ok but the food could have been a bit more varied, with more fresh fruit and better coffee. The bath was a bit slippery so you have to be careful or bring a safety bath mat with you to put in the bath. There were mainly Spanish guests staying there when I was there.

Room Tip: I had a peaceful room with a balcony looking out towards the sea.

Looked for cheap holiday and this hotel came into that category. Friendly staff was highlight off our stay here. Room badly in need of lick of paint and bathroom needed bit of attention but balcony was great. Ask for corner room if you want large balcony. Rained on last 2 days so we were forced to have breakfast here. Pretty dire food I'm afraid. Good selection of hams, cheeses and bread with cereal and fruit also on offer but if you like a fried breakfast then this is not the place. Hard stodgy scrambled eggs, fatty bacon, potato rings,black pudding? and strange sausages (all cold). Didn't want to chance evening meal so ventured out in rain. We stuck to cereal and toast on our last day here. Even the coffee tasted strange. Also, went to bar one evening where about half a dozen young Spaniards were drinking bottles of San Miguel but whoever served them seemed to have vanished into thin air. Waited for about 5 minutes for service then gave up. Very poor. Ideally situated for beach and games room and pool area were fine.

Room Tip: Corner room for large balcony but also try for one at front of hotel if you want sun for longer.

Stayed at the hotel for a very short break (2 nights) on a half board basis. I wish I had booked room only due to the food which was served which after viewing I decided to eat out anyway.

Room was OK but no more than although it was clean. Reception staff were very pleasant as with all other staff that I came into contact with. The bar man was rarely behind the bar when I visited however, I did find out that the chap was performing two roles, bar man and waiter in the resturant.

I was aware the hotel was set back somewhat from the main resort front but did not realise how far and much of an incline. If you have problems walking up hills then this is not the hotel for you.

Room Tip: If youhave no transfer arranged then I caught the train at the airport to Torremolinos station (1.80...
