... 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 ...
... of sweet wine. Then after we had visited done more we had some taps and drinks at another place. After than having had a look at dome " Rabajas" :-) we went back home to watch Argentina - België 1-0 ! What a shame that Belgium was out, I would have really liked to see them going further in the tournament ! And than at 10 pm the big match Holland - Costa Rica. We were all ready and in Orange and real excited, I'd we only know than was going to be ...
... the water a comfortable temperature. However, when I tried to get into the waves, the sand changed to small pebbles under my feet, very hard to balance on and the water plunged suddenly from shallow to deep. The surf was also a little rough, so I had a very short dip!
We managed to raise ourselves for a leisurely lunch of scrumptious provolone cheese fried in ...
... Casares is a great “white village” and not too many tourists venture this way so it is unspoilt and a beautiful place to just walk around. Great views to the Rock of Gilbraltar and even Africa!
Ronda – OK enuff of the “help me Ronda, help, help me Ronda” couldn’t get that song out of me head until we saw the Puerto Nuevo – “New Bridge”, called “new” cause it was ...
... bears witness to the medieval Moorish settlement, as its urban fabric, architecture and main characteristics (form, materials, colours), were not changed when it was adapted to the Christian way of life, to survive as a remarkable example of a Spanish-Moorish town. Archaeological excavations have shown that the hill where the Albayzín is now situated has been occupied continuously from as early as the Roman period. In the mid-8th century the region's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Natali Torremolinos
Mein Mann und ich sind gerade erst von hier wiedergekommen. Ein dreitägiger Kurzausflug, last-minute. Buchten Montagabend und flogen Dienstagmorgen - waren gegen Mittag am Freitag wieder zurück.
Right where do I start. A large group of us ages ranging from 4 months to 65 years went in January 2006. In total there was 19 of us. I can only speak giving my own opinion and that is I ABSOLUTELY HATED THIS HOTEL but My sister loved it and would go back (more fool her lol). I'm having difficulty finding any good points to make about it. Although I will say that it was very clean and the rooms were nice. But that's as good as it gets. I found the food appalling. We found out when we got there that this is what the Spanish call "A Social Security Hotel". This means that the Spanish people get free weeks at this hotel throughout the year. The week that we went it was absolutely full of Spanish people. I dont have a problem with this except for the fact that they were very rude and would actually push us out of the way to get to the food in the dining room. They were like vultures and you swear they had never had food before. I found the one guy behind the bar VERY rude indeed and would always serve the spanish before serving us. It was possible to stand at the bar for 20 minutes before getting served, even though you were there first. There is no entertainment there (I'm not sure whether there is in the summer months but there certainly isn't in the winter months). I found the bar area very uninviting. I have been on lots of all inclusive holidays but this is certainly one that isn't value for money.
this hotel is definately not good value for money. There are no childrens facilities whatsoever. The staff are surly and unfriendly. The majority of the guests are spanish, which i have no problem with, but other nationalties tend to be ignored as they come first. The pool area is very small and crowded, the sunbeds are uncomfortable and even though we were told at time of booking there were 3 bars, the pool and nightclub bars are not opened until July. The food is absolutely appalling, mostly cold and very unappatising. The only time our daughter ate anything was when we went out to eat, defeating the object of going all inclusive. The entertainment (if you can call it that) was terrible, just the same guy singing spanish songs all the time, hardly the place you want to spend your holiday evenings in. All in all this holiday was a disaster and the extra we paid for all inclusive was a waste as we ate and drank out most of the time. There were other UK people in the hotel who werent in the fortunate situation we were of having the money to do this and they had a terrible time. I have always been a great lover of the the Costa Del Sol and had this been my first visit I would have never returned. In my opinion this hotel needs to be dropped to avoid the Costa not getting the bad reputation that this hotel will earn it
My husband and I have just returned from here. Last minute 3 day break, booked Monday PM flew out Tuesday AM and back Friday Noon.
returned yesterday from a place i always enjoyed but was totally spoiled by staying at this hotel. where to start well... the room was a triple which really needed air con. the unit had had the control switch removed and when we said it wasn,t working we were told it was an air circulating unit(koolit air conditioning written on it)...the meals were abominable the choices varied from fish fingers, stew? still debating what it was,ham or hambones we think and chips sounds ok? but everything was cold ! we saw them putting out new trays and the food was cold! most of the stuff wasn't signed so it was hit or miss hubby likes to try new things thank god so we sent him in first it defeated even him we ate out. is it off season in june the hotel filled up with elderly spaniards and coach loads of school football teams!...the pool was cold(well that can happen) but the surrounds were uncomfortable the sunbeds were plentiful but there were no umbrellas or any kind of shades no tables a closed pool bar.....entertainment the day we arrived there was a board with activities for each day the following morning the board was empty..two days later a live football match on t.v.at 8.00pm..never changed after that and we didn't join the pensioners in the bar for the conga every night...no we spent our day in a hotel we had visited previously where there was a pool bar, sunbeds with shade and a friendly holiday atmosphere ! we were lucky we had a car so we could escape (but searching for parking for up to 30 mins. was stressful the parking in torremolinos is a nightmare be warned)....all in all a disappointing holiday a waste of a week.
We stayed here for a week in February 2004 and could find nothing to complain about, while the hotel was typically spanish this was the whole point of the holiday as we didnt want a package. We arrived at 1am and were told a meal and a bottle of wine were waiting for us in the restaurant. We found the food excellent and while very little English was spoken, we had no problems getting by. The entertainment at night was first class, and while there were no other English speaking people there we were made welcome. We tried to book again in November but it was closed.
my father and i stayed at the royal park hotel torremolinos on september 14 2004 for two weeks. although we could not default the rooms or the staff the food was definatly not up to standard. the evening meals were edible if you are used to your food being cooked that way .poor dad survived on soup and a sweet every night.now the breakfast, that was a different experiance altogether.in 14 days we saw eggs only twice ,once boiled and once hard fried all other mornings we got smash potato swirled into rounds accompanied with fried bread which was the round rolls sliced and fried from the night before.bacon you saw if you were lucky and then it was floating in oil.The entertainment in the evening was good if you spoke any other language but english, not once was english spoken. no we will definatley not be going back.
We are just back from Torremelinos and were booked in to stay at the Royal Park,arrived on the 17th October only to be told the hotel was closed by the police! No explanation given but told we were moving to sister hotel Royal Al Andalus which had no family facilities and an average age of 80.
Please double double check your booking before going here as if it happened to us it can happen again.
Also this holidy was booked on the 8th September no last minute booking.
PS Staff not friendly or do they speak good English.
