    Most rooms had ocean views. Breakfast was very good. Ours was at the end of the hall so could just manage a view if we leaned out on the end of the balcony.

    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.

    Great view of the beach and the pool, only a quick walk across the street to the beach, and free towels available from the pool for use at the beach. Easy walk to several restaurants and cafés

    Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Costa del Sol Torremolinos

    Exelent Service and Location


    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


    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


    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


    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.

    The commercial centre of Torremolinos is a 10 minute walk up a very steep hill, this walk is made easier during the day because the hotel as an external lift that takes you almost to the top of the hill, beware though, this lifts closes at 6pm daily. A taxi to the commercial centre only costs 5 euros so its not too expensive to avoid the hill if you want to. The hotel restraunt offers a good choice of dishes in very pleasant surroundings. The hotel would suit the more refined middle aged holidaymaker, definitely not the choice for the beer swilling teenager. The hotel entertainment is very much "spanish" style, flamenco dancing etc. All in all a good value hotel in an excellent position, ideal for a relaxing holiday.

    What we expected


    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.

    (We didn't have to deal with a car, and from the look of things, were glad we didn't. Parking options, street and hotel, seemed quite restricted. )

    Though the place is a little more expensive than those back from the seafront, the premium is worth it. Every room has a open view of the ocean. And if you plan to spend any time at all in your hotel in Torremolinos, you might want to consider this, as the high-rise hotels are packed in thick.

    Didn't eat at all in the hotel, but lots of cheap options only steps away...

    Not for me!


    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.

    Staff speak pigeon English at best.

    Pleasantly suprised


    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


    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


    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....


    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.

    Morocco Excursion

    Morocco is said to be a young country with an old history. It's not African and not European but a mix of faiths and cultures. We were told by the tour director that Morocco wasn't going to be impressive but it would be interesting. This was also stated in several travel books and online sites. So it was upsetting to hear people complain that it …

    We took the optional half day excursion to the town of Malaga, across the bay from our hotel in Torremolines. Due to traffic we didn't get back to hotel until 3 PM. Some people did not do this excursion, others went back by taxi before lunch to have more time on the beach, and a group of ladies decided to stay all day until after the runway show at …

    Today we traveled south with our final destination being three days at Costa del Sol. The terrain became more mountainous with occasional cattle on hillsides. Our mid morning stop was at a tourist plaza similar to a turnpike stop in the states. There was a petro refuel area and the quaint restaurant comfort stop has a long wooden bar where locals …

    I woke up bright and early this morning, as is my curse when I have no need to get up early. I decided to sit on the balcony and enjoy the solitude. It was amazing, watching the sunrise and listening to the waves crash onto the beach. The sun was obscured by clouds but the sky still glowed pink for a short time.

    I didn't do much today, …

    This morning was a bit hectic and by the time we boarded the plane, around noon, I was already feeling a bit tired. It didn't help that I had been up since 4am. I couldn't sleep because my mind was so busy with nervous excitement, thinking about all the things I had forgotten to pack and work emails I still had to send. So I got out of bed and …
