We had no wake up call today. I was up before sunrise and got some good shots of the sunrise. I had a shower and did some blogging and then got Larry and Derek up a little before 9:30. We went to breakfast and then got on the coach at 10:35 for our trip to Tivoli World an amusement park whose rides were shut down. Our objective was to take the ski …

Wake up at 6:30, bags out at 7:30, departure 8:15. Our first destination was the Alhambra and the Generalife. Our first stop was the Palacio de Carlos V which was round with arches all around.and open to the air. This palace was never finished. It was ornate on the outside but plain on the inside. The Arabic Palaces were the opposite. The outside …

Torremolinos by the Beach

A travel blog entry by jono.anita87

A slow start this morning after a late night and a short drive down to Torremolinos on the Costa Del Sol (south coast of Spain). Excited to see the ocean and a sandy beach, we take a walk along the river front stopping for some hungover Burger King along the way. The beach front here is littered with bar/restaurants and looks to be a great relaxing …

    Relaxing on the Costa del Sol

    We had a suite with a large balcony overlooking the beach. It was awesome! The location was perfect and the rooms were very comfortable. The fold out sofa bed was not the greatest but still adequate. It made our couple of days in Torremolenos on the Costa del Sol very relaxing and memorable.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Costa del Sol Torremolinos

    Exelent Service and Location

    from

    My wife and I have visited the Melia on many occasions. We continue to be impressed by the quality of service and the exelent beach front location.

    Very nice Hotel

    from

    Very nice hotel. 2 single beds pushed together. Amazing breakfast.

    Parking lot free and lots of street parking. On the beach and short walk to restaurants on the strip. The town itself is okay, I liked the hotel but did not like Torremolinos. Has a nice balcony with ocean view. Got it through Expedia at 72 Euros/night - great value.

    A great location

    from

    The hotel has the best situation in Torremolinos. Although this resort is only ten minutes from Malaga airport, you feel a million miles away from urban stress. This is our favoured location whenever we need a quick few days away. The rooms are quite large, bright, clean, modern, and most importantly, air conditioned. The hotel is not too expensive and retains an excellent standard. The staff are mature and professional. The food is as good as the resort's best restaurants. The best rooms are on the front of the hotel - Block B. These have commanding panoramic views of the sea; and the mountains in the distance. This hotel offers free nightly entertainment. You would be hard pressed to find a better location to take a sunshine break.

    Good for a Tourist Class 4 Star Hotel

    from

    This 4 star Melia hotel is of a good average standard, the rooms are of what you would expect of a tourist 4 star hotel, carpeted, tv with UK and US satellite channels (poor reception on occasions), good sized bathrooms, minibar. When booking ensure that you ask for a room in Block B overlooking the pool, these rooms have the best sea views and overlook the swimming pool (small pool for the size of the hotel), they also have the sun on them for most of the day. The position of the hotel is excellent, it is immediately across the road from the fantastic beach and many beach front restraunts and bars are closeby.

    What we expected

    from

    We knew that anything we booked in Torremolinos would be huge and cater to the sun-bathing crowds. Though we were in transit, and there for only one night, this hotel worked well for us. It was close to the airport (as close as the city of Malaga to the east), the room was clean and air-conditioned, and the staff were helpful. It was a nice and surprisingly quiet place to recover from jet-lag.

    Not for me!

    from

    This hotel consists mostly of Spanish 40 years plus with a sprinkling of Brits and Americans. Entertainment is geared again at the Spanish 40 plus mob with acts like Ballet and spanish vocalists. There is no real life here. The bar is very much a cocktail type and not where you'd sit in trunks swigging lager. While all rooms have sea view one side also faces the cliff where all day long people are walking up and down for the beach and can see right into all the rooms, ridiculous. While the staff are helpful if approached you very much get the impression you are being left to your own devices. They say theres a lift to save you the steep walk up the cliff to the town center but this shuts early evening. The pol is the smallest i have seen in a spanish hotel as is the lounge area around it. There is nothing for kids at all at this hotel. rooms are good with all amenities such as fridge, safe, TV and direct dial phone. The snack bar is basically a seperate restaurant.

    Pleasantly suprised

    from

    stayed here at beginning and end of our 2 1/2 trip around andelusia may 3-may 18/03. The lobby could be spruced up a bit but thought the rooms were great! all had a view of the ocean and pool. VERY clean rooms- bathroom was new and modern. Service was fine -probably better if we spoke spanish. Limited parking but parked on street with no problems at all. Excellent breakfast buffet! would definately recommend!

    Celtic uefa trip 210503

    from

    Considering there were 2 buses both of which were full of Celtic supporters - we all seemd to be booked in with great ease. the reception we were given was above average & all of the staff were very helpful. the room we had was very clean & tidy.. the bathroom was very clean with no unusual aromas. the beds were both comfortable with clean sheets. the breakfasts i had, though not the usual start to the day for my self was quite varied & plentiful to see you through the day. the staff on duty were also very helpful & willing to assist in any way possible.. all food stuffs were fresh & well presented... so apart from the Celtic result our stay was one to remember.. thanks

    You could do better

    from

    I recently stayed here on 2 seperate nights. While the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were not clean (hair all over shower wall, ammenities with dirt and hair on them, etc.). This hotel feels like you have walked into a high school spring break party combined with tour bus groups of senior citizens. Very strange. There is also limited parking and if it is full you are on your own.

    Excellent but....

    from

    Everything was great. However, we left several postcards to our family at the desk, to be mailed by a staff person, none were ever received.
