MedPlaya Hotel Pez Espada
Ranked #8 of 71 Hotels in Torremolinos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We have stayed at the Pez Espada 3 times previous (latest 7-14 March 2014) and always appreciated its relaxed ambience, pleasant staff, perfect location and fine dining. On this occasion we were absolutely delighted to be granted a top floor suite because the hotel was fully booked. Our room was fantastic, private massive balcony, port view and unbelievably spacious. Thank you Pez Espada for a wonderful time last week. Cant believe some of the reviews describing the staff as rude and "gestapo" like. Maybe the people who had that experience were rude and unpleasant in their own attitude!. Reception, dining and housekeeping staff are all polite and friendly. One of the things we really like about this hotel is that smart dress code for evening meal actually means SMART dress code and those not complying are asked to do so. It is much more pleasant to dine in an evening and feel as if you are actually in a restaurant not a beach café!
Full marks Pez Espada, we cant wait to return next year after the planned refurbishment.

Room Tip: Always request a Garden View room.

Visited 2nd March 2014 for 6 nights. 3rd visit

Worst reception staff in any of the hotels I've stayed in and I've stayed in plenty.

No welcome...and departure was even worse.....no "thank you for your stay" was everything ok? They need a course in customer care.

Pillows were bad had to use 3 just to get comfortable. Beds hard.


Starting to look tired and run down. Settees in foyer should have been replaced years ago.

Entertainment... same act same night for tha last few years..they should take a look at Hotel Aloha Puerto

Good location this is why we stay in this area

Yes its off to bed at 10.30pm...no dancing or music

Sorry wont be back

my friend and i have just spent a week at the pez espada,and we could not fault the hotel,it was maybe a bit tired in some places but considering the age of the property it is to be expected.food was good plenty to choose from,in a good position.If i were too improve on anything it would be the entertainment,it would have been nice to have had a bit of music to maybe dance to before and especially after the acts.As it was everybody disappeared about 10 30 - 11 00 because there was nothing going on.A little tip it is worth paying a little extra for a garden view on the sunny side of the hotel,eg 112-119 all rooms with a 1 in the middle of the number seem to be good rooms.

Room Tip: as i said above the garden views seem to be the best rooms.

The Pez Espada is in a great location and a grand spacious hotel with character, but next year so my wife & I told going to be refurbished, I hope they don't spoil it as with some other hotels in the same area.
The staff are a credit to the hotel, always on hand to help, food good plenty of choice, you wont loose weight. The rooms are a bit of a gamble, we paid extra for a garden view, but most have a garden view, some though, ours never got an sun which is located on the R/H side looking out to sea.So if you want sun go on the L/H side overlooking yes the garden plus the pool area.we could have changed rooms but jaded after journey, could not be bothered and only staying just over a week. The room was nice plenty of room clean had good view over the pool & garden, the only problem we did have is with the safe, it kept loosing our code to open it [ the management will know who we are?] every other day we had to get someone to open it for us, being accused of not knowing how to operate it, but we have a electronic safe in our home so familiar how to operate them.
However as said the staff were great, we will return to Torremolinos again and stay at the Pez, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Already mentioned in report.

Been back a week from our holiday in pez espada.
Firstly the best thing about the hotel is its location. A short walk to benalmadina and torremolinos the other direction. We were with my 5 yr old who walked miles with us every day and loved the walks.
The decor is a little dated but fine for us. Was clean and spacious. Our room was also OK though got no sun, the opposite rooms had it all day but we were told they only had twin rooms on that side and no family rooms.

The pools were all cold and the indoor one was cold though we didn't expect outdoor pools to be warm enough this time of year.

Staff were all nice, not massively happy but not grumpy either.

The hotel is more for older people and there was nothing for our five yr old but we knew that and sometimes prefer a quiet hotel as we are out most of the day and like to relax when we are back. Our daughter made friends with a few of the older guests who were very friendly and complimented her good behaviour.

Food was same as most hotels though we loved having pots of coffee and tea on our table for breakfast. Beats queuing

Overall happy with my choice

Just spent a week there with daughter and 12 yr old granddaughter. Public rooms very pleasant and very clean, staff friendly, food good and drinks very reasonable. Rooms clean and bedding changed daily. No entertainment for young ones day or night though. Onl;y problem was hotel rooms on 6th floor which was ok except that there was a large window with 2 outward opening windows opening out onto a 6 floor drop,had to lean out to close window, no lock on window so nothing to keep children from opening it. I asked if we could be moved but reception said no vacant rooms til the day of departure. Also it was too cold to use outdoor pools but the advertised indoor pool down in basement was not clean. There was sand or grit on the bottom and leaves floating on top. Round the sides where the water mark was there was a 6" grubby grey line on the tiles. I asked if it was safe to use and when it was last cleaned ,they said they would check but it wasn't cleaned until 3 days later when they cleaned the outdoor pools as the weather improved . We enjoyed the holiday but if I had younger children with me I would have refused those rooms as very unsafe.

Room Tip: ask for rooms facing pool area they have decent balconies and NO windows, just patio doors.
