On the way we stopped at Mijas for a bit and than drove through the mountains to Marbella. The weather was rather strange, a lot if wind and temperatures of around 25 which is pretty cool for here at this time of year. We walked through the little streets of the old town which was real nice and walked down to the boulevard following the beach for a bit. But as the wind was to fresh we went back up and had some lunch on a little square before ...
... Riet again of course and had breakfast all together on the terrace. We tan took our cars and went to Malaga where we first had coffee and cake at a real fancy Hotel/Café on top of the mountain overlooking Malaga with a fantastic view. This was lovely and Riet and Nico insisted to offer this to us all. We than went into the town centre to walk around for a bit and visited the oldest café of Malaga with a real special atmosphere where we had ...
... and spices (like a Swiss raclette), followed by a hot fish seafood soup. Back to the beach for siesta! At 7:30pm the beach cushions were being gathered up, so we had to move! We sat down for a drink outdoors at our hotel.
I nearly choked on my tea when the customer near me at the little boutique dropped his pants to try on different shorts on sale. This was ...
... plate with a steaming pan beside it. The companion was pretty excited about cooking his own meat. It was really delicious beef too. It came with sangria and a huge baked potato for only €11. With food so cheap, I am not sure where we are spending all our money but it seems to be going quickly.
After lunch we took a walk up the steep hills to the village, which is actually a huge shopping district. It was a lot of fun looking around. I decided to try ...
... one of the many classic beach resorts of the Costa Del Sol. As you be able to see from the picture the beach is laid out with neat rows of sun beds and sun shades, and is a haven for people on cheap package holidays. All along the sea front are shops selling holiday souvenirs, we saw one where you can get an Elvis t-shirt and next door sold a range of European tabloid papers. We did stop at a small café for tea and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amaragua Torremolinos
Loved indoor spa/pool
Stayed in Amaragua with my 17 year old daughter. at different times - July and October. We praised it so much my sister came with us the second time. Excellent hotel and facilities. Beside beachfront walk, a street of local shops, restaurants etc but still quiet at night. As females we felt very safe both in hotel and surrounding area. I'm fussy - but this hotel was definitely 4* - really enjoyed indoor pool, gym & spa, free of charge.
June 2004 - We stayed here for 5 nights and we couldn't fault the hotel at all. We went half board and the food was good, although I agree with another review that is was warm rather than hot.
The hotel was very relaxing and luxurious and had a nice mix of nationalities staying there. It wasn't cheap but the price reflected the quality.
I would recommend the Amaragua to anyone wanting a relaxing break in the sun.
A Holiday To Remember
June 2004 we spent two weeks at the Amaragua and found the hotel
and all the staff treated you so special and is hard to pick out any
one item that was not great. But our special thanks must go to
the poolside bar staff especially Tomas the chef for his taste of
spain tapas. These little things make the difference from a good
holiday and a great holiday. The location of the hotel is ideal for
familes or senior citizens with easy access to the poolside or the
beach. I will certainly be trying to rebook for 2005.
We spent 2 weeks at the Hotel Amaragua in Oct 2001 (our honeymoon). It is an absolutely fabulous place, and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
Would definitely stay here again
Just back from a short break to Torremolinos. Choose to stay at the Armargua based on the reviews it got on this site. We were not disappointed, it is a very clean, spacious hotel with very helpful and friendly staff.
It has an ideal location for the beach, and is in our opinion in one of the nicest areas of the resort.
Food was very good, buffet style, great range of foods for both breakfast and dinner, we stayed on a half board basis.
The only improvement I would make is to have a microwave available in the restaurant as due to buffet style meals the food tended to be warm rather than hot.
There was no entertainment in the hotel, if you are looking for a hotel which will provide a relaxing and peaceful atomsphere look no further.
My family (wife and 3 children ages 7,5 &2) stayed for 7 nights at this hotel in July/Aug 04. Food, facilities, staff, pool areas and general run of the hotel are very high quality. They even have a PC in the lobby for all you computer geeks out there who must read/send email every day.
First Class Hotel
My husband and I will be going back to this hotel in September this year for the third time since April 2002. This hotel is fabulous. I cannot fault anything about it. The staff are friendly and always available when needed, the food is delicious and the interior and exterior is immaculate in every area. It is situated in a great location - practically on the beech (just a narrow promenade separating it). This is the best hotel we have stayed in and shall keep returning. You won't be disappointed.
Just been to the Hotel Amaragua for thr 4th time and it just gets better The food is excellent, the cleanliness of the Hotel is spot on and the staff are the most friendly we have ever come across and we've been staying in costa del sol since 1982. The service you get in the hotel in general is excellent. I wouldn't stay in any other Hotel now that I have found the Amaragua. Julie
My favourite holiday destination
I absolutely adore this hotel and everything about it. Wonderful people, wonderful food and wonderful weather. I'm about to leave for the Amaragua tomorrow for the second time this year. Its definitely a place you will want to revisit again and again.
