“Return trip”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

I returned to this delightful, spotlessly clean hotel with my daughter in May 2012. We stayed on the second floor in a room at the front of the hotel. The room was as before very clean and tidy. I took my kettle this time for brews in the room. The gardens were immaculate as before and the pool was clean also. Breakfast was the same, cold meats, bread, jams, cheese, boiled eggs, fruit etc, on a par with most continental breakfasts and more than adequate. All the staff were still very polite and friendly as was the spanish owner lady, who is lovely. What a gem of a hotel this is!! Will definitely stay here again.

Just back from a week at the Carmen Teresa. I won't repeat what everyone else has said about this hotel. Its all true, the gardens the friendly staff, the cleanliness, the air conditioning...I could go on. My only gripe was the food which is why I only gave 4 stars. The breakfast was very basic, cheap white bread, toaster that took forever, boiled eggs, meat and cheese and tinned fruit. Also strips of very fatty bacon you cooked yourself. We were also on half board which was taken at Hotel Tropicana about 6/7 minutes away. Again very basic but this wouldnt have mattered if the food had been edible. I would recommend not taking this option.
The Hotel is on the main road (that seems to run from Torremolinas to Marbella) in La Carihuela about half way between Torremolinas and Benelmedina. Five minutes from beach and shops, plenty of places to eat. Recommend El Mojito British pub at the start of the shopping street. Good food and prices, staff terrific, entertainment good every night of the week. Also a luvly little pub across from the hotel tucked away in a courtyard called the Wagon and Horses run by a nice wee girl called Emma. Bingo and raffles and food!
Walk along the promenade at night for what seems like miles and enjoy the dozens of traders selling everything from bags to watches, tee shirts etc.
I would go back to the Costa del Sol especially the Hotel Carmen Teresa despite the breakfast.
Footnote; the Mama of the hotel was a lovely Spanish Lady who despite our communuication problems made us feel very wanted. We told her we would return next year!

Room Tip: Rooms facing to the side have sun on the balcony almost all the day. Can get very hot

This is a brilliant hotel. Its in the heart of torremolinos and the hotel is spotless. The rooms are lovely and cleaned on a daily basis. The staff are pleasant and the pool was perfect for my 2 young boys with a constant smell coming from all the beautiful flowers in the gardens. It has a small bar with with ice creams and all good priced. There is a pool table as well and internet access. Perfect in every way. Cannot wait to go back next year!!

What a super little hotel! Extremely clean and friendly, intimate and cozy. We had a room on the top floor overlooking the main road. We loved it because we could watch the world go by on a night. The room was cleaned daily, towels changed daily and the beds were changed twice in the week that we stayed. Nothing was too much trouble. The reception is full of information and the staff even told us which number buses to get. I travelled with my 11 year old granddaughter and we loved it so much we are going back next year. Close to the supermarket, about 300 yards away and close to the beach, shops and restaurant. If I had to 'nit pick' I would say the breakfasts are very basic. I only eat wholemeal bread and cereals and this was not supplied but we bought some from the supermarket and ate these along with the meats, eggs, drinks and jams available. And also there was a lack of sun beds which we had to fight over. But the pool only has a capacity for 18 people and there were 18 sun beds and chairs so adequate for the size of the pool.
Our flight did not leave until the evening and we were able to keep our room for the day for a further 20 euros.

Room Tip: The staff will accomodate you in any room if they can. Fridges are available for 5 euros a day. AC...

just returned from a week staying in the hotel Carmen Teresa.23/30 July 2012.
hotel is spotlessly clean.lovely reception area with plants and access to lift and dining room/lounge area.lets start with downstairs. small bar with very reasonably priced drinks. 1.50 euro for bottle of beer, 7 euro bottle of wine. lounge area with flat screen TV, chairs,tables and sofas, free WiFi. small pool table, and a couple of computers which are payable locally to use. dining area is clean and decorated in the Spanish style with beautiful tiles around the walls, plenty of tables and chairs.
small kitchen area with buffet style breakfast, you can do your own toast and there is a hotplate to do your bacon on. tea/coffee/juice machine. breakfast is continental style with meats,cheese boiled eggs etc., also cereals.all areas are spotless. going outside there are beautiful gardens to sit in and are illuminated at night. lots of lovely flowers and shrubs, up a couple of steps and there is another garden area with seating, 3 or 4 more steps is the pool area, although not too large it is enclosed and a real sun-trap. Only problem that people mentioned was there is only 10 sunbeds and with 40 rooms you had to be quick, never bothered us as wife stuck a towel on at about half seven just before breakfast, after a full day of catching the rays there were usually some available from about 4 which still gave you 4 hours of baking time. The Room. again spotlessly clean,very comfy double bed, with bedside tables, nice painted Muriel over bed gave it a homely feel, desk and chair and large wardrobe. shower and toilet/sink flat screen TV on wall. nice balcony with views of pool and sea.( room307 ) we hired a fridge at a cost of 5 euro a day, which was great as we could keep our drinks and food cold. we also hired a safety deposit box which was 15 euro for week this is in reception. the room was air conditioned and was free, and we needed it. it was very hot during our stay.all the staff are very friendly and the room was cleaned everyday, clean towels 3 or 4 times per week and bed changed twice during our stay.i would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel to anyone 15mins to airport, 5 mins to supermarket, 10 mins to beach front. also if you want somewhere nice to eat i cannot praise highly enough the HALF MOON BAR ( SUE,CHARLIE,HAYLEY,LAYTON) 10 mins from hotel. out of hotel turn right walk to roundabout with BP garage, cross road and walk to bottom head right and follow street. bar is on the right nr pizzeria. you will not be disappointed with the food, all freshly cooked to order and the steaks are to die for.we ate here everyday and could not fault anything, Sunday lunch is a must.lovely people and we had many a good night there. ( don't eat at the Chinese restaurant 2 doors up) it wasn't very nice. the beach front goes for miles and is surrounded by shops and eateries of all kinds. all in all a lovely place and are hoping to return in February. (couple in mid 40s)

Room Tip: although hotel is set on a busy road there wasn't that much noise from traffic,room 307 has pool...

Me and boyfriend stayed there for nice 10 days at the beginning of June, when season just started. That means quiet and piece all over the hotel and around. But, that also caused that we had room faced to garden, which is big benefit. Otherwise, imagine to be facing to the main street, then atmosphere would be completely different. Hotel is really something for kids, as personal staff let walk baby ducks in the mornig and also puppy at the garden. Just for few hours, then they shut them to not disturb a guests. Room was always neatly cleaned, air condition was working on temperature mechanically just as we wished.
Only one disappointment. Breakfast is very basic and you will soon get fed up of routine of same taste. We found local "mercator" near by and bought us better tasty brfk :)
Beautiful beach is only 10 min walk. Center 5 min by bus, station is in front of hotel.
This hotel is not for guests who expect luxury and something waou. 3 stars are just reasonable.

Room Tip: Faced to garden, corner room with a largest balcon.

This isn't a five star hotel, but it never claims to be. It felt more like we were staying with a Spanish family than at a hotel. The rooms were very clean and the AC worked well. Nice balconies overlooking the pool. The downstairs Lobby was great and had free wifi. The Outside garden was amazing and was like a little oasis. We definately be back again!
