Nice clean average 3* Spanish hotel. Pool and gardens are lovely but noisy. Boom boom music played far too loudly all day and evening. Train line runs near by and although I can see it would disturb some, it didn't bother me too much. Malaga airport is nearby so you get planes landing and taking off continuously whilst trying to sunbathe. Pool bar serves real Coca Cola and San Miguel however they charge heftily for it. Much cheaper to pop up to the local supermarket for cold drinks.
The rooms were clean, air con worked a treat and we got a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the entrance. These rooms catch the afternoon sun and although the balconies were narrow, it was lovely to sit in the sun well into the evening. Much quieter too than the rooms overlooking the pool.
Hotel is on the edge of torremolinos and you need to take the train into the town centre. 2 stops on the train takes you right into the heart of the bustling town with plenty of restaurants and bars to visit.
The food is pretty awful at this hotel. There is a choice of food, but all of very poor quality. You can see how leftovers are recycled day after day. I only ate toast and honey for breakfast and we didn't eat dinner in the hotel at all. We had to go out to eat. ( la riviera bar nearby looked after us very nicely indeed !)
I'd go to torremolinos again, but would stay much nearer the town centre.
You pays your money, you takes your chance. But be prepared to be hungry!!!
