... breakfast with them and after breakfast we got our stuff together and got the caravan ready to leave. We all pushed it out by hand together because of the slope and difficult access and that was funny to see ! We got it hooked up and ready and than we hugged and kissed each other goodbye and thanked them for their kindness to receive us as they did. We would try to come back with my mother for a couple of days in springtime. Than we got in the car ...
... Riet again of course and had breakfast all together on the terrace. We tan took our cars and went to Malaga where we first had coffee and cake at a real fancy Hotel/Café on top of the mountain overlooking Malaga with a fantastic view. This was lovely and Riet and Nico insisted to offer this to us all. We than went into the town centre to walk around for a bit and visited the oldest café of Malaga with a real special atmosphere where we had ...

We both just need food and get to bed. The wi-FI was not working so right to ...

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.
