... 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 ...
... worse ..... My god what a match again, the only one that was playing was Holland, Costa Rica was just building a brick wall and Holland kept on attacking and shooting. Even the pole and the lat (2 times) was helping the Costa Rica. The full match was played and even in the extra 2x 15 min. Holland couldn't score !!! So penalties .. with the reputation Holland had I was terrified, not again, getting kicked out even being being 10 times better ..! But ...
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.
The sand on the beach is brownish but ...
... up sitting against a pile of cushions, drinking beer and having our feet nibbled on by small fish. The first few minutes really were a bit weird. I felt so ticklish with the fish attacking my toes that I kept thinking I would drop my beer in the tank. But eventually I started to relax and then I was just fascinated, watching fish graze across my foot, sucking up dead skin cells as they passed it over. After 30 minutes I felt like we had bonded and wanted to take ...
... back along the sea front the sun worshipers were starting to migrate from their hotels and apartments to the beach.
Luckily for me we departed hell and headed into Malaga for lunch. Fresh sardines barbecued to order at one of the Chiringuitos on the beach just east of the port. Malaga like any big city has horrendous traffic but you can still find a quiet oasis. We strolled around the 11th ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Barracuda Torremolinos
Would not stay here again
just stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, dinner bed and breakfast. rooms very good and cleaned daily with towel change. Food awfull, breakfast no choice, could not drink coffee and tea bags not good, glad we took a kettle. Dinner basic no vegetables, no choice. staff not very friendly, would not stay there again.
My wife and two children stayed here in dec 2005.The location is good not far from the habour and on the promanard. We stayed half board however we only had our breakfast each morning as it was very cheap to eat out and any way we dident spend much time around the hotel.I would just like to say that I would not fancy staying here in mid summer as i found the walls in each room very thin and you could hear all sorts of noise even from yhe corridors at night, thankfully in december the whole place is full of pensioners staying for up to 3 months at a time.So its an ideal spot for a relaxing off peak holiday.
Go into the city of malaga as it is a charming place and you could spend a few days exploring it.
Hotel in a great location
Not much to complain about here - the entertainment is a negative but pretty much everything else is a plus - there can be a queue to both get in to and at the Dining Room at peak hours - outside garden areas are excellent for sunbathing and just a few paces from the promenade - would we stay here again ? Yes without a hesitation - the location is excellent and the food in the dining room is very good and usually hot. For the money the hotel is excellent.

Loved the baracuda
stayed at the baracuda hotel 14 10 2005 very enjoyable the food was very good every dish was cooked very well plenty of choice. Location ace near the beach near the shops rang hotel day before to ask for room on top floor overlooking the sea thats what they gave us staff very good cant wait to return to this hotel.
Spent the month of January 2005 at La Barracuda. Ambiance was great and location is perfect. Enjoyed an all inclusive holiday, and will try to repeat this in January 2006. This hotel is in the middle of everything - can walk to almost anywhere - and if not, the buses are close. Great holiday.
It was ammmaaaazzzinnnngggg!!!!!
I went to magaluf on the 25th September 2004 it was great , everynight the entertainment staff were great,and everyday they done activities for kids and adults and they were great all my cousins loved it and so did the adults they did loads of games.The bar staff were lovely ,really kind and genuine all in all AMAZZING!!! The beach was 2 mins away and there were shops and clubs just 5 mins away. I recomment everyone goes to this hotel it is very good and you are gauranteed a brilliant time and free drink all day and night and free food!!!. It is ideal for families as when i went there were 19 of us ha ha ha and we are all goin back in 2005 for 3 weeks!!!
I visited this hotel in December 2002, I went with my sister. I was impressed. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were excellent, nothing was too much for them to do for their guests. The food was good, and as they had guests from all over the world, they catered for everyone's tastes. They are so friendly there. I spoke to a vast majority of the other guests, and many return year after year. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and are cleaned daily, there is ample storage space, the ensuite bathrooms have baths and showers. There are three lifts, which are also always clean. The views over the Med Sea are great. It is very friendly, and as one guest said to me, while you are there you feel you are part of one big happy family. The location is good. You virtually step out of the hotel onto the beach. There are plenty of sunbeds, a tennis court and pool, and poolside snack bar.
Nearby are many shops selling newspapers, souvenirs, tobbacco and sweets, there are many restaurants, cafe's and diners beside this hotel. There is also a marina close by. You can have a pleasant stroll along the seafront, and stop and one of the many cafe's to enjoy a wonderful cappuccino coffee, or other refreshment. I was so impressed with the hotel, I decided that when I go back I will only stay at this hotel, and I have even taken up a Spanish language course. I have the most wonderful memories of watching the sun rise over the sea as I ate my breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to all persons. Do give it a try, you will not be disappointed. In the evenings, there is entertainment in the bar. Top marks La Barracuda...I'll be back.
Sixth trip coming up!
I do not walk particularly well, arthritis. I enjoy my vacations at La Barracuda because there are so many things to see and do within a short walk. The hotel is average, the food is plentiful, with a good choice, but average. I always say the hotel location is the gold, but the staff are the diamonds in that gold. They have to be the most friendly hotel staff anywhere! Most of them have worked there for many years and have told me it's a good place to work and so that makes it better for you as a client. A lot of inexpensive restaurants are within a very short distance, lots of bars and cafes. My 6th visit is coming up, and I am looking forward to it with great pleasure.
The Thompson Rep
Howard, our Thompson Rep went out of his way to make sure we had a great holiday. Good value and I would recommend to everyone
