THB Torrequebrada Hotel
Ranked #16 of 45 Hotels in Benalmadena
Reviewed 19 August 2011

Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. We have just returned from a weeks stay at the hotel. Guy at reception very unfriendly on our arrival, rooms were dated and dirty and the the hotel is located quite far from all the restaurants at the marina (8 euros each way). Dont really cater for british, all the entertainment at the pool was in french so we had no idea what was going on. Best thing they could do to this hotel is knock it down!

We stayed for 4 nights, the room was acceptable, but we had 2 twin beds pushed together which isn't great when you are a couple. The buffet breakfast was good with a good assortment, and even had champagne which was nice! We found out quickly on the first day that all the loungers get taken early in the morning with greedy people holding sun beds until they are ready... we saw one couple come down at about 3 oclock to use theirs. It does have a nice pool though and towels are available with a refundable deposit. It is right on the waterfront and there is a card machine to get you in and out of the beach so the Hotel is fully secured. BUT talking of secured, we came back from the pool and found our room wide open. We had left our camera etc in our room and when the cleaner came she/he failed to close the door behind her, and she failed to clean the room properly (just small things, no soap etc). When I complained I received no apology and I had to ring housekeeping twice myself to try and get the room finished. I don't think we would choose to go back there unless it was on a bargain deal.

As a few reviews already this was in its time one of the best around 5* around. But the rooms are a little tired but hey u dont spend most of ur time in the room. The only prob with our room 428 was the shower, it had no thermo on it cold one min then scolding, we got use to it though. The food was excellent lovely breakfast, selection of everything u can imagine Sparkling cava aswell. Loads of spanish people there which is a sign it was a good hotel. Drinks were quite expensive in the hotel to. The only thing we thought was that when we arrived there was not much info explained about where things were. Overall in was good value for what we paid.

We had read some of the reviews on this site and felt a little anxious, we had no need, on our arrival at the hotel our check in was friendly and efficient our room was spotless, spacious with plenty of storage space lovely bathroom and fantastic views over the sea and a good sized balcony. The pools both indoor and out were kept spotless as were the gardens, we were only B & B the breakfast was fantastic with a huge choice we started each day with a bucks fizz, the staff were efficient and friendly. There is a bus just outside the hotel which took you to other resorts or the marina in Benalmadena which is very nice by the way, we ate at Pinochos which was very nice. Just by the hotel is a beach bar called The Luna Beach bar the food here is excellent as is the service the guys were all really nice happy and polite. We had a great time at the Torrequebrada and would highly recommend this hotel

This was the 8th year of having been to the Torrequebrada. Stupidly I sat on here and read reviews for the 1st time ever before we went. I was very concerned that the hotel had gone totally down hill and we were going to be disappointed.... Thankfully when we arrived, we were greeted by the same helpful smiles, taken to a spotless suite, and found the same, welcoming place we have always remembered, Yes, the sign with name of the hotel doesnt light up properly at night, yes, it is a bit dated, and yes the food (apart from breakfast, which is fabulous) isnt much cop but there are such fab places to eat out locally anyway, but when you take one step out to the back of the hotel and see the backdrop of beautiful sea, literally jumping distance away, the beach - equally as close and the amazing, perfectly kept grounds and pools where you can go and relax all day in the most amazing climate - clean towels are provided, you neednt take your own, lovely pool bar - you wont be disappointed! We had an amazing 10 days with our two little girls. There are better 5 star hotels out there for sure, but we have never had anything but a wonderful holiday here and will be going back ASAP!!

Stayed at this Hotel in July 2011, not 5* don't now why it has 5*'s the Triton up the road is far better than this hotel and is only 4*. No tea and coffee making facilities in the room - a big minus when you are an early riser. The breakfast was good but the chef who was supposed to be there every day to make omelettes etc was only there one morning out of 6 very disappointing. Very bad smell on -2 floor heading for pool every day. Also the pool bar staff were extremely rude and impolite even with my children. Also sun loungers are well past there best and a lot were broken. Made the best of it with my family but would not use this hotel again.
