Stayed here in Jan 2013 as it was close to relatives that we were visiting.
The hotel is a basic 2* b&b that looks like it's been converted from an old Spanish farmhouse, but it was reasonably cheap and both clean and comfortable inside so no complaints from us.
The owners are a young couple I think and speak a reasonable amount of English. They have a living room area right next to reception that had a roaring log fire when we first arrived and the guy who checked us in was happy to give us a choice of bedroom options as it was out of season and they had plenty of unoccupied rooms. Other staff we encountered only knew a small amount of English though.
The room we chose was front facing so had views down towards Torrox Costa and the sea from its small balcony. The walls and doors must be quite thin though because you can hear people talking downstairs in the living area while you are in the bedroom. Would be a problem if you have issues with noise, though I couldn't comment whether other rooms in the hotel would be similarly affected.
Breakfast is basic continental, nothing flashy. The hotel also has its own swimming pool and tennis court, though these both looked to be closed for the winter.
Location-wise it's not particularly close to anywhere, standing as it does on the side of a hill and next to a housing estate (where our relatives were based) in between the old village of Torrox Pueblo and the touristier Torrox Costa. We were able to walk down to the coast itself from the hotel in about 20 min.
All in all a comfortable and convenient hotel. We would stay here again.
