... to the car and drive back to Nico and Riet's house. They had already prepared a BBQ and we got the table ready to have dinner. It was great to spend our last evening together and talk till late. They're real nice people and in some way I feel so at home with them. The feelings of my early youth are real strong even if I was so small, the accent of Rotterdam and the way they behave has a real impact on me !! I feel real close to them ! 7th We had ...

After a modest continental breakfast at our accommodation, Judy and Herb explored Torremolinos while Maryln and I stretched out on the super comfortable cushioned lounge chairs under the thatched umbrellas on the topless beach just across the road.
It was another beautiful sunny day in Spain and the water beckoned.

We thought as we had done such great job on the wee Unit/Flat in Adelaide we should take on something a bit bigger... then again, maybe not!

... along until our main waiter began to help another guest get ready for a large party. I think it may have been a birthday for 16-18 guests. The party hostess and our waiter set out elaborate table and room decorations. Our service and tapas slowed down and as a matter of fact, the last tapas were brought out cold. Still we ate very well for about €35.00. Tomorrow is going to be a long day. Must sleep ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Confortel Fuengirola
Loved this place
Just returned from this hotel after 1 week stay, great seafront view which looked right out to sea and along esplanade either way. Room was modern and cleaned every day, when we were out!!! Stayed at pool in morning and walked 20 metres to the cleanest beach you could imagine afternoons. Restaurants and all entertainments in abundance. All staff at hotel were very good and friendly, so helpful. Splash out at El Higueron restaurant at Mijas pure class.
What a fantastic location. The hotel overlooks a fantastic beach which helps as the pool area was a bit disappointing, only a few sun beds and no sun after 1 o clock. We were one of only about 4 groups of english so VERY spanish. I would not recommend this hotel for children as there are no facilities or entertainment but its fantastic for adults who want to get away from all of that !! Cleanliness was exceptional, the food was to a high standard but never hot enough for me, rooms very comfortable and fully air conditioned and reception very helpfull. If you walk for 10 minutes you will find an abundance of bars restaurants and clubs to suit all tastes with the luxury of peace and quiet on your return. By the way if you have a sun bed on the beach opposite the hotel the chap there is brilliant...if you ask him he will reserve your choice of bed every day let him know what days you are on a trip and he writes it all down. Would definately go again!!
The Confortel Fuengirola is a 4 star hotel situated on the sea front in Fuengirola. From the outside it appears a very modern and well kept building having only been opened in January 2005. As soon as our travel operator's coach pulled up outside the hotel to drop us off a very friendly porter was there with a trolley to take our case inside - this stood out as being good service as the other hotels that our coach had dropped off at (including other 4 star hotels) didn't receive any such greeting.
Top Class Hotel
This is an excellent hotel, only recently built.
The rooms are good, with a sea view, and the bedding and towels are changed every day.
The hotel is mostly occupied by Spanish, but there were some British and Norwegian people there.
The food is buffet style and does cater for varying tastes. Although we were on B&B we tried the restraunt one night and found it to be good. The location is great. It's in Los Boliches right across from the beach and 2 minutes to the train station, away from the tacky bars of Fuengirola town.
I would recommend this hotel, and will certainly use it again myself.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel from 10th June 2006 for 1 week and having visited Fuengirola for the past 16 years I can honestly say this is the best hotel by far. We were on holiday with my parents who also agreed it was lovely. It was very modern and miminalistic and very clean. The maid came every day and changed the bed sheets and towels daily. The view was fantasic overlooking the beach and sea.
We stayed there this past March with a tour group. The hotel was clean, but the elevators were a problem. There were several tour groups there and it was a wait for the elevator. We found the staff elevator near the stairs and took that when the main elevator took too long to get to us. The staff was nice, not as helpful as I would have liked, but they were in no way rude. Overall it was a pleasant stay, I would stay there again.
Very nice hotel
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, and found it a very comfortable, clean and modern hotel. We were on the 9th floor, and had lovely sea views. The rooms were bright and modern, and the maid service was excellent. Breakfast gave you plenty of choice and was very nice,We did not sample Dinner, too many nice restaurants around. Disabled facilities in this hotel is fantanstic, There were a few disabled clients, and the staff seemed trained to deal efficiently with care.Would definately stay again.
Stayed in Confortel two weeks ago for a week. The location of the hotel is good and I had a nice room on the 14th floor (the are 15 floors) with a great seaview (most of the rooms have seaviews) and a balcony. The room was quite big, it was nicely decorated and very clean and had a beautiful bathroom.
Dont go for the sunbathing!
We have just returned from a short break to the Confortel. Very modern, bright and airy. Nice clean room. Good selection at buffet breakfast. Only downside for us was the location of the pool means you lose the sun behind the hotel building about 1.30 in the afternoon so no good at all for an afternoon siesta!
We have just returned from the Hotel Confortel in Fuengirola. And I read on this site before I went something about the staff. Well it is true they are dressed in black from head to toe in the restaraunt and never speak or smile it is weird, The hotel has a great location but you would not stay in for a night as you would get more life in a churchyard, The prices for a Gin yes a Gin 7.50euro and a Whiskey 9.75Euro that is without the mixer, We was there for 7nights and the only time we saw anyone in was a Spanish group who came for the faria (Fair). And they were not drinking, The hotel is nice. clean. and great for the station just behind, The porter Babou was fun and really polite and helpful, The reception were nice, But oh the dining room it was like something from the Adams Family, Food good but always tepid never hot.
