    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel & Apartamentos ROC El Pinar Torremolinos

    Had a GREAT vacation

    from

    I took my gf last summer to spain for 2 weeks (first 2 weeks in June, 2002). We found a great deal on the flight and hotel (around $1100/person with taxes included).

    Weather was beautiful during this time. The hotel was fine, clean, and staff was friendly. The "shows" at the hotel were boring, don't bother.

    The hotel wasn't in the best location, but we had a view of the ocean from out 4th floor blacony and always a nice breeze coming in.

    Free shuttle to downtown/beach (beach about a 20 minute walk) every day at half hour intervals.

    We met another 3 couples, one of which we are going to travel with this January.

    Beaches were great, food was very affordable and people were friendly.

    We took an overnight train to Barcelone and spent 3 days there at a friends place. The train cost $100EU round trip (for 2,000km that is a great price). Knowing ahead I could have found an equal deal on a plane, but you need to know well in advance.

    We liked the kitchinette in the hotel room as we got food from grocey store.

    We fell in love with Spain!

    Aweful

    from

    I don't know how they justify giving this hotel 4*. The services available were below average, and the staff the most miserable I have ever met. The selection of food at meal times was very minimal, desserts consisted of 'fruit' or ice cream at every meal. It was raining when we were there....... including inside the hotel!!!!! and it was cold. We were informed that the manager doesnt put the heating on til Nov!!!! A very dissappointing stay, which will not be repeated.

    A Recommendation

    from

    We arrived at 2.00am to be pleasantly suprised to find we had a suite located on the 11th floor, not one Balcony but two, Very clean, the bottle of wine was well recieved, Food not to my liking, (I am fussy) The reception, staff in general very friendly, we have to thank Daniel (reception) especially. The hotel bus service is excellent, as are the local bus and train services. Torremolinos is a very pleasant place to stay, plenty of shops, bars, resturants etc. We liked the El Pinar and will certainly return, a little way out of the center but the bus makes up for that, it is quite a walk into the town. We would stay there again, our thanks again to all the staff who made it a good holiday.

    I loved this family hotel

    from

    I went to El Pinar with may family, wife and 2 children, from 2 to 10 September in a halfbord.It's a very good hotel, great gardens and facilities.The food is very good and the staff too.The hotel is a little far fom the beach but there is a free bus every 30 minutes.It's an excellent deal. We want to return next summer.

    Not 4 Star, But Not Bad!

    from

    The El Pinar isn't the 4* hotel it claims to be, but it is a good 3*. Poor location - on a very busy road and you'll need a car or taxi as you can't walk to town or the beach. Excellent gardens and pool area - its best feature. Staff OK. Restaurant OK. Pleasant, newly refurbished room which was very clean. A good touring base but not suitable for a beach holiday. We weren't either impressed or disappointed.

    Best hotel ive ever stayed in!!!

    from

    the El pinar hotel is the best hotel ive ever stayed in. Rated at 4*, i believe that it could well be a 5* hotel. Its has everything you need on site in the hotel, including shops and supermarket. There is a hairdressers and massure aswell as jacuzzi, sauna and gym. The gym isnt brilliant, but who wants to work out on holiday! The staff are brilliant and the rooms, especially mine, was amazing, i stayed in room 1119, on the 11th floor, we had a sitting room, 2 tv's, bathroom, loadsa of space, 2 beds and kitchen, so for 2 to share it was imaculate!!! I would reconmend this hotel strongly to anyone who has familys, or even couples, and the teenagers out to party will love it too. Theres a free bus to the beach which is beautiful and also the town centre which has plently of bar, restaurants and clubs. I loved it here and will be making sure i return next year!

    Great holiday

    from

    The hotel is 20 minutes from city centre BUT a FREE bus runs every 30 minutes. The rooms are simple but very clean and there are 2 swimming pools on the property. This was one of the best holidays we ever had ,

    Not worth 2 Stars

    from

    the hotel is a disapointment from the moment you approach the grounds are the only saving grace. The hotels reception area is drab and painted in an awful green with dated sofas and tables the vending machines dont ad to the effect of cheap and nasty rooms are simply furnished to the point of under furnished the hotel is however clean the dining room is a soulless box and I can only comment on the food at breakfast sad and uninspired eat out would be the best plan. this hotel is no ones idea of a 4 star Hotel

    Terrible.....

    from

    This hotel is a joke. Prior to arriving with a tour group I was informed that this was a 4 star hotel. I would have a hard time giving it 1 star. The decor is out dated by about 30 years. The rooms were large but outdated and dirty. If you look at the photos on the hotel website and then go to the hotel you will be extremely disappointed.

    Good value at the El Pinar

    from

    We were booked into the El Pinar as part of a last minute package. The hotel is situated about 20 minutes walk from the beach and about 30 from the center of Torremelinos. There is an excellent free shuttle service to the town center and the beach every half hour. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable (we had an apartment with cooking faciliteas and fridge) with a great view to the beach. Restaurant and food were satisfactory. The highlite of this hotel was its beautiful grounds with lots of lawns, trees and flowering shrubs. The two swimming pools and a large childrens wading pool were immaculate but not heated (we still swam at the end of October). We would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a comfortable and safe place to stay. Pam and Tony Smith October 2002.

    ... where it is assumed that showing skin will immediately lead to uncontrollable lustful acts and depravity—yet here it’s clearly not about sex… and nobody disrespects anyone. It really makes you wonder what the obsession with covering the body is really all about. Strange… a young woman covered from neck to toe gets harassed more in Morocco than a butt naked woman here in the Costa del Sol… Finally I reach a sign that marks the end of the nudist ...

It turns out that Vicky too was unwell and went to the Doctor for a round of antibiotics after noticing a "rattling cough" and such. We all received our bills today (ours, not so bad considering the one tour which was OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive). Anyway….Vicky’s doctor bill…..$450 for a five ...

    While I’ve been slaving away out here at the pool writing my little heart out, Christopher has been going back and forth doing the laundry. He just returned from removing everything from the dryer. Job done! Thanks sweetie!!! He also reports that the medicine is doing its job. YEAH!!! Now I can rest ...

    That's it for now folks.

    ... 24 hours to get from Fes, Morocco, Africa to Bristol, Somerset, England. It's like the amazing race, but without the million dollars at the end! Provided we have calculated the correct times for busses and ferries I think we gat this. Well, we're just going to have to have 'Gat this' as we have a Ryan Air flight to catch and grandparents waiting at the other end! When at the other end first things first is registration for an Indian visa. ...

    The drive from Granada to Costa del Sol (Sun Coast) was on good highways, winding coast roads, sickeningly high bridges, tunnels thru hills and mostly 120 kmh. No problems driving on the right so far, I'm actually more used to this than driving on the left nowadays. Although I still hang too much to the right of the lane and struggle with dual lane roundabouts. I stopped for lunch in Nerja, a seaside resort town. First glimpses of the beaches didn't impress me, ...
