    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Barracuda Torremolinos

    Would not stay here again

    from

    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.

    Good location

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Good hotel

    from

    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!!!!!

    from

    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!!!

    Fantastic

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    "Why don't we spend five weeks in Greece and the Islands this summer" he said to her........

    Oh dear. What a bad choice this may turn out to be, with Greece running out of money and in economic turmoil.

    Not sure yet if the talk of supermarkets running out of food, ferries cancelled and power cuts ...

    Welcome to the Malaga Marathon

    ... same wherever you are.
    When a ship docks all passengers will be given a time by which they must be back on board. This time is very clearly displayed as you exit and no one has an excuse for being late. But fortunately some people think it does not apply to them, or they misjudge the amount of time needed to return to the ship from wherever they are. And thus starts the Malaga Marathon.
    The rules for spectators are very simple. Place yourself in a ...

Skirted Malaga and arrived at our camp site just north of Torremolinos. Planned to have scrambled eggs for dinner. Eggs looked "shiny". We had bought half a dozen HARD boiled eggs!!!! There are problems with not being able to read Spanish! Malaga and Picasso ...

    ... we made our last pickup in Malaga, the huge coach bus was full. A mere 45 minutes into the trip, we stopped for a break! Strike two, wasting time. Finally arrived in Granada at 11:00. During our trip, our guide, fluent in 5 languages, gave descriptions of various sights in 3 languages. We often were unable to see the sights she was talking about by the time she had said it 3 times. We stopped and the group of at least 50 were lead ...

    ... much ham and bread Spaniards eat here. I was not accustomed to
    eating ham at home, so it is a bit different. I have only had chicken
    here maybe 3 times total in 3 weeks! (Sam this place would not work for
    you with food haha) While we were staying at the hotel there was a
    sports competition that was going on and hundreds of children flooded
    the hotel at all times. They would cut in front of you for dinner and
    they would press all of the ...
