Reviewed 8 October 2012

This is one of the best 4 star hotels we have stayed in.My wife and I spent a week here to celebrate my birthday on arrival at 10.30am we were suprised to find our room ready and it was exactley the type of room we requested through an e-mail prior to the holiday.Large and spacious and very clean.The maid service was excellent. The meals,breakfast and dinner are as good has we have had in Spain plenty of choice and variety chef cooking your food while you wait. The bar prices are as expected a lot dearer than the bars outside,(mr jeeves if you like bingo) but the service is very fast and efficient. The pool area (leads direct onto promenade) has plenty of sunbeds we had no problems getting one but it was october. All the staff, reception,dining, bar and maid service were polite friendly and helpful. One nice touch which we didn't expect was that on the day of my birthday the hotel sent a large basket of fruit up to our room then at dinner they gave us a bottle of champagne, a nice touch. All in all a top class 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room in the main block facing the marina

We stayed at the RIU as a family and I have to say it was great. Cleanliness very good and the staff were great and the food was first class. The hotel is situated on the promenade, which is clean flat and easy walking. Pubs just over the road, must mention Toms Tavern, which sells agreat pint of lager at 1.3 euro's. Entertainment on the evening was quite good, the Four Tops show was excellent. On our sons birthday when we came back to our room they had put a basket of fruit for him and also when we went down for our evening meal, the table had a candle and a bottle of sparking wine was also on the table, a great gesture. We cannot wait to return next year.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of each block are better

Hotel in great position beach front.
5 mins walk to Benalmadena port and a little further to the resort centre.
Torremollinos centre can be reached along the beach front walkway with its many shops or by the back road which we did one night,which was about 1hour.
Hotel bed very uncomfortable...food was good nice to have crispy bacon and proper fried eggs...entertainment didnt suit us we are in our 40s and felt was too boring as its nice to let your hair down when away not fall asleep!!!!
Several cheap bars to drink in opposite,they are not posh but cheap runours being one of them great cocktails.
Around the corner was irish bar Mulligans food was great proper home cooked...
We stayed for one week and never got to go by the pool no beds available.
Maids very friendly,reception staff miserable,dining room staff very friendly.
Air conditioning on a timer you couldnt change it so very hot at night.

Room Tip: Sea view best

This hotel was fabulous the staff so friendly nothing too much trouble to any staff member and the wonderful manager so approachable and spoke to all guests really wanting to know how they felt about the hotel, staff and food experiences on your visit.We have never had this attention to detail from a manager and so we are looking forward to our next RIU experience in GRAN CANERIA soon,if its half as good has the NAUTILUS we are in for a wonderful time.
So thankyou all at the RIU NAUTILUS for a wonderful weeks holiday and hope to see you next year,OH just a little word for the manager the WESTLIFE TRIBUTE night was FANTASTIC WE MAY BE IN OUR 60is but more of this PLEASE, NOTED THE motown MARTIN GAYE night when we were leaving shame on you you could have had this whilst we were there, hopefully next time please.Just one niggle will you be looking to give guests multi choice board basis like all inclusive we think this would be the iceing on the cake,if guests could choose what board they prefared everyone would be catered for please consider this option.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking pool and on end of hotel have good outlooks

Having returned home following a very relaxing ten day stay at the Nautilus. Have been several times but the last visit was three years ago. The Hotel is much the same as we remembered it, first class staff, good food and a very relaxing atmosphere. I was informed that the hotel is due to close for a major refurbishment in a few weeks, I hope they dont destroy the ambience of the old girl and turn it into a modern gin palace. Had a great room overlooking the promenade and beach. Really enjoyed the stay as like all Riu's they really do make you welcome and look after you in a quiet manner.

Just back from a wonderful holiday in this lovely hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff were very courteous and helpful and our room allocation was SUPERB with stunning views over the gardens ,promenade and sea.
Hotel food was excellent with plentiful varieties and very helpful chefs and waiters to hand.
Cleanliness was excellent and all staff made sure that rooms were cleaned everyday.
Overall I recommend this hotel for all the points made and for its great location .

Room Tip: Go for a high floor seaview room .

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and it was just as good.

The food is fantastic, the staff are friendly, the pool area is clean and the location is good. The hotel is kept to a very high standard and the rooms are comfortable and extremely clean.

The one issue we did have was the reserving of sun beds. Most had towels on them by 8.15am. The hotel states they don't allow it but do nothing to stop it. We were down by the pool by 9.30 every day after having to reserve a bed and most people did not come to thier beds until 11am.

Please riu introduce a system to stop this annoying holiday habit!
