... built up in the hills and are enjoyed as holiday spots for water sports and hikers.The scenery is a cross between Wanaka and Dunstan and Tasmania, I thought. There was eucalyptus trees, almonds, olives and lots of citrus trees. The man taking the tour was very excited about the dams as they held 5 years of water should they need it. We visited an old traditional village called Alore, narrow streets and a ...
... s the first 100 metres of ascent completed and only another 400 or so to go. And there's some blue paint markers here and a couple of cairns, so obviously that "easy" grading is justified (more or less - perhaps "moderate" might be a better description, given that it's still a bit steep and loose here ....)
It carries on being a bit steep and loose for quite a way, until we get to the ridgeline. Frequent rest stops are necessary and it's beginning to ...

I think I'm finally getting better at ordering coffee.

We stayed there having drinks, again with Bev whom we had met in the shop. The three of them had beers and I had a Sprite. Shortly before 7:00 we headed back down the hill to the waiting bus and it was still blowing and getting colder. The bus was nice and warm. We headed back down the mountain and went into the city of Torremolenos where the bus dropped us off. We walked the short distance to the Restaurante Juan ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pez Espada Torremolinos
Not a 4 Star Hotel as expected
Having stayed at the Pez Espada in the last month, I was very disappointed in the accomodations. the room did have a great front view but was very small with twin beds on one headboard. we had to pay a fee to have the refrigerator turned on. The food was awful, no variety same thing for breakfast each day, dinner ws not much better. This hotel should never be rated 4 stars This review comes from 2 ladies from Boston
Just returned from a week at the Pez Espada, Torremolinos, this hotel is in an ideal location to get to Benalmadena Marina (5 minutes gentle stroll) where there are a number of bars/great disco bars/night clubs and restaurants (a little pricey!) overlooking the marina. Torremolinos centre is about a 15 minute walk along the paseo (seafront promenade).
Great winter holiday.
We spent 28 days here inc. Xmas & New Year. 5Th Dec 04 till 2Nd Jan 05. We had no complaints at all, infact the whole frendly staff seemed to go out of there way to make our stay enjoyable. The room was clean and linen changed regularly. Food was very good with a Gala meal every Fri. night, in addition we had a Xmas & New Year Gala evenings with wines and brandy Inc. The location was ideal for us as from the garden we had access to the Prom. From which we could walk to Torremolinos Center or Benalmadner Marina and beyond. The local bus service was just a short walk from the Hotel. All in all a most enjoyable hence going back agian in Dec 05 for another 28 days.
Stayed at the Pez Espada July last year 2004. The staff on Reception speak English and are very helpfull.
Pez Espada was fabulous
The Pez Espada was a stunning hotel set right on the beach not too far away from the marina in Benalmadena. All meals were self service in the restaurant which overlooked the promenade and beach, the food was fantastic as was the service. There was absolutely nothing that we could fault with the hotel whatsoever and myself, my husband and daughter had a wonderful week there in May. I can recomend the hairdressing salon there, came with manicure and pedicure!!! Great!! Looking forward to another break in the not too distant future
After reading other reviews of this Hotel I was most concewrned about my trip. But I think the guy that condemned the hotel and the food must have the Pez Espada confused with some other place. This week there was great. Rooms kept clean. Front desk was most helpful. The food was good---now understand, this is a buffet (breakfast and dinner), not a gormet offering. There was always enough variety to allow a good meal. I didn't walk away hungry--In fact I gaine 3 pounds. My only problem with the meal was that at dinner you had to buy your drink, even if all you wanted was water. That's kind of petty on their part but that's the extent of my complaint. The location of the hotel is great, central to nearby shopping and nearby clubs. Oh, and it's right on the beach. If I go back to Torremolinos again (and I hope to after I visit a few other countries) I would select the Pez Espada again.
Three weeks bliss
Superb location on the sea front for long walks, hostelries and shops.
Excellent food and service. Rooms and overall outlook a little "tired" and in need of refurb. Reception staff could show a little warmth and interest in their guests - poor initial impact. I would stay at the hotel in future should the need arise.
Good winter holiday at Pez Espada
We had an excellent low-cost week through Thomsons in February 2003. We had originally hoped to get the other hotel in our allocacation-on-arrival deal, but were pleased we had ended up at the Pez. We had a very nice room in the new block.The only disappointment was that the pool was not in use at that time of the winter.
