“I would stay again!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We went for a long weekend and I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel for a 2*.


The staff were so friendly, spoke basic English and made us feel very welcome. Our room was cleaned daily, to a great standard.

The room itself was basic, but that's all we needed. We paid for a safe at, I think, 5 euros a day. Our air con was broken! We could have complained but the room wasn't hot or stuffy so we didn't. Air con worked fine in the other rooms. I'm sure they would have fixed it or moved us if we had asked. Our balcony was massive. There is lift access and I needed this as I do have trouble walking sometimes.

The food... Not to everyone's taste, if you are British, but the hotel was full of Spanish people and they seemed to be enjoying it. There were a good selection of foods, and I found something I enjoyed at each meal (we were full board). It was well cooked.

It is a 10 minute walk to the beach downhill, be careful on the pavement in flip flops as it can be slippy, I learnt this the hard way!

I recommend this highly if you are on a limited budget, and like to be a little bit out of town, with easy access to the beach and nightlife.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

The hotel was very pleasant, Good Food & ambient surroundings. Entertainment was also provided.The small pool area was very well frequented. Our room (on the 9th floor) gave a commanding view of the town & the sea. We found the staff very friendly & willing to help with any problem. Well worth the 15 minute walk to the beach

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.
