... to the parking, getting our car and drive to Torremolinos which was on the way back to Malaga. In Torremolinos we parked our car in a underground parking and walked down to the boulevard which followed the beach for kilometers. It was nice cause there were all small shops and trendy bars build on and aside a beautiful beach. We had something to drink on a terrace and walked for about an hour, than we walked back through the old part of the ...
... 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 ...

There was a bird from Africa called a Palmist, that flew to a palm branch someone held. At the end of the demonstration they brought out a baby barn own and a baby eagle owl for us to see because they couldn’t do much flying because of the wind. I bought a wooden sculpture of an owl that is also a whistle ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Don Marco Torremolinos
We stayed at the Don Marco from 29th December until January 7th and had a fantastic holiday. The hotel is beautiful and the reception staff are so pleasant and welcoming on arrival and made you feel at home immediately. The hotel bedroom was beautiful and had a fridge and tv. Maid service was first class and all the staff were so friendly. The New Year's Eve Gala Dinner was spectacular and had 8 wonderful courses with free wines and drinks in the bar until 1 am if you wished. When we left the dining room we were all give party bags full of fun hats etc., and 12 grapes to bring in the traditional Spanish New Year. We loved every minute of our holiday and are planning to return in September. The hotel is right on the front and there are steps and a lift available to take you to the centre. There is also a bus stop across the road from the Don Marco. You can eat at the other two hotels Don Pablo and Don Pedro. There are 9 pools and lovely gardens. Can't wait until September.
I have just got back from our holiday for one week at torremolinos! We (my fiance and I) stayed at the don marco and it was a lovely hotel!
New Hotel - costa del Sol
We were two families if three and stayed for two nights HB.
Hotel was new and above average.
Food was Ok but nothing to write home about.
Service was very good.
Nice to have access to all the complex and all the pools.
My husband & I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in July.The hotel is very nice,the reception area is beautiful all glass and marble.The room was a decent size with a big bathroom,the only complaint here was that the wardrobe space was not very big,but the room was spotless.
Spent 9 nights at the Don Marco in July with my husband, hotel is very good, lots of marble and glass in the reception area. Rooms were very clean with large bathroom,although wardrobe space was quite limited. The maids kept them in tip-top condition and they were spotless.
1st class hotel.
Reviews we'd looked at were all good at Don Marco so choose to go there,flights suited us going from Glasgow and coming back.Never been to Costa de Sol before so just went for it.Couple in their 30's,(children away with grandparents)looking for a nice relaxing week with no hassles and found it here.Don Marco was the 1st hotel that we didn't have to put towels out at any time of the day,any day of the week.Hotel was 1st class in all aspects.Went Half Board but ate out often as we got tired of the hotel food,(not that there was nothing wrong with it).Only thing was pool was a little small and the pool bar wasn't open long enough during the day.Torremolines was slightly quieter than we thought it would be but plently nightlife in Belemandena.Good holiday all round.
I've just returned from a fortnight's holiday at this hotel with my boyfriend, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The hotel is located centrally in Torremolinos, near loads of shops (touristy ones, though) and directly across from the beach. It is also right beside the Don Pablo and Don Pedro hotels, and you can easily access all the facilities of each of these hotels- plenty of pools to choose from, and we also had the choice of eating dinner at the Don Pablo (we were staying half board).
Just back from a week in the sun at the Don Marco. Lovely hotel and everything spotless. Rooms very comfortable and the indoor pool was very welcome as the outdoor pools are a bit chilly in April! Buffet style meals, most of the time excellent. However they did offer rabbit one night. It seemed to disappear off the hot plates, not sure whither the Spanish guests ate it or it was simply removed or even jumped!!!! Staying in this hotel was very interesting as the guests were from all around europe and america. Staff very helpful when our room key disabled itself and we were temporarily locked out of our bedroom. We were very dubious about going to Torremolinos for a holiday but were pleasantly surprised the area we stayed in was lovely.
A lovely hotel for a few days by the Med - the most beautiful reception and lobby area, matched by comfortable bedrooms, good quality buffet and excellent pool and sundeck areas. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back, possibly as soon as October this year.
A taxi trip at 15 Euros was enough to get to and from the airport and the location on the beach and within strolling distance of the marina at Benalmadena make this a great choice.
