Travel Blogs from Torremolinos
Imogen and I were left to ourselves in Malaga; all our tour guides had left and Ruben was at work.
We made our way into the city for lunch, after all the greasy tapas I was quite excited to devour my Mexican salad at the port. It was quite a cultural experience; the restaurants were all joined in one section, offering us Greek, Indian, Mexican or Argentinian Grill.
Malaga has a rich Moorish past with a well preserved Alcazaba in its ...
... sorry.. We got given a big fury jacket and chucked into the ice room. It was pretty funny, quite small, a cooler with an extra room pretty much haha. Wasn't too cold, had to wait awhile for drinks, the guy was in no rush to serve anyone, he was mostly busy mopping the floor. Finally got a "cocktail" each and our shot. Weren't too bad, no ice cups tho. Just paper Pepsi ones haha. We drank those drinks then lined up for the next ones, I had no idea what the guy was saying to me but ...
... in Spanish to them, they haven't even heard of Australia. One person thought it was a town in northern Spain.
So yeah most of Malaga was a joke; just getting wasted, sweating profusely in the heat, enduring reggaeton music at the clubs, staying out till sunrise, then sleeping till the afternoon. Only other stuff we did was hit the beach, with its ****** sand and ...
DINNER WITH HIPPIES and SOME AMAZING ROCKS
It's a bit of a last minute decision to divert from our intended route and head back east 50km or so to a tiny village, El Chorro. The drive there is not the easiest due to part of the main road being washed away by the deluge of rain that we have had over the past weeks. And so we take a detour which led us to drive a road we wouldn't have needed to otherwise. My confidence is plentiful when weather conditions are dry. Nothing ...
... donkey taxi rides available around the village and its tiny streets. However, the closest we got to a ride was on the statue of a donkey at the entrance.
Leaving the beautiful whitewash town of Mijas we take a breathtaking drive down the hill to our dinner reservation The restaurant sitting on the oceanside served us up a Mediterranean meal which consisted of a mainly seafood feast. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Isabel Torremolinos
wonderfull isabel this is an excelent hotel in a good position,right on the sea front, my wife and i stayed here for 10 nights,both over 60,we found the breakfast to be plentifull with lots of choices,the rooms are large with very good on suit facilities,they were cleaned every day, the staff are responsive and helpfull,we would stay again.go for it.
We arrived as a late arrival on Saturday 23rd September. Hotel room was on first floor facing on to another apartment block. The view was the only poor thing about this hotel. However, it guaranteed a quiet night's sleep. The room was of a big size, bed was very comfortable and big (my husband and I are 6 ft 2 and I am 6ft tall), wardrobe was of a good size and bathroom was a good size with the shower being the centre piece. Shower had jets sprouting from everywhere. We both enjoyed the breakfast every morning with a good selection of breads, cold meats, cheese and fruits. Reception was helpful and they were right about the restuarants they recommended which were all good.
Kurzer, erholsamer Urlaub
Wir kommen gerade von einem 3 tägigen Urlaub hier zurück.Wir fanden das Hotel tadellos, mit einem reichlichen Frühstücksangebot und einer super Lage. Wir waren das erste Mal ohne unsere Männer und Kinder unterwegs und hatten eine ganz tolle, entspannende Zeit. Der Strand liegt direkt gegenüber und es gibt genügend Bars und Restaurants. Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral und wir haben uns sehr sicher gefühlt. Wir können dieses Hotel sehr weiterempfehlen, wenn Sie nach einem schönen, erholsamen Urlaub Ausschau halten.
Übertraf alle Erwartungen
Habe hier im Hotel Isabel mit meiner Frau, ihrer Bekannten und unserer Tochter 4 Tage Urlaub gemacht. Das Hotel war besser als erwartet, die Zimmer wurden täglich gereinigt und die Dusche war sehr gut. Zum Frühstück gab es ein erstklassiges Buffett und die Angestellten waren sehr freundlich und fleißig. Versuchen Sie in den oberen Teil der Stadt zu kommen, dort findet die Party statt. Das Abendessen im benachbarten Hotel Tarek war sehr gut. Im nahe gelegenen Irischpub Shenninghans kann man viel Spaß haben. Grüßen Sie den süßen Barkeeper namens Liam mal von den drei Damen aus NYC. Wir hatten wirklich eine gurte Zeit in Torremolinos. Ist natürlich nicht das % Sternehaus überhaupt, aber wirklich sein Geld wert.
Short relaxing break
my friend and I have just returned from a weekend 3 night break here.
We found the hotel spotless, the breakfast plentiful, and the hotel position good.
First time we have been away without husbands and kids and we had a lovely relaxing time.
The beach is right opposite the hotel, plenty of restaurants and lovely bars .
Overall a real relaxing break , the hotel is pretty central and we felt completely safe.
Would definately reccomend this hotel if you are looking for a quirt relaxing get away from it break.
My daughter, her friend and myself spent 4 nites at the Htl Isabel. The hotel was better than expected. The rooms cleaned and refreshed daily. Excellent shower. Excellent choice of buffet at breakfast. There were many choices to have and staff extremely efficient and courteous. Make sure to get to the upper part of the town. That's where the action is. Dinner at the neighboring Tarek hotel was very good. Lot's of fun at the nearby Irish Pub Shennanigans. Corny, friendly, live music nightly which was alot of fun. Tell the cute Belfast boy Liam behind the bar, the 3 ladies from NYC say hi. Overall we have a good experience in Torremolinos. Not your top rate, exclusive resort but definately worth for the budget.
I stayed at the hotel for four nights, and it was great! The staff are very friendly and helpful - almost falling over themselves to be of assistance. They speak excellent English for those who don't speak Spanish, and they seem to really sppreciate it if you give the Spanish a go!
Great beach-town hotel!
My mother and I stayed at the Hotel Isabel for one night before departing for Barcelona. The location is great if you are just passing through because it is so close to Malaga airport. For 80 euros in may for one night we got an amazing room and free breakfast. The hotel is in a great location if you want to go to the beach because it is right across the street! There are probably about 30 beach restaurants you could walk to in under 50 minutes. Loved the bathroom as well, that hydro-shower is amazing! Would definitely stay here again, although Torremolinos seemed to only have a beach and not much else, but then again we only stayed one night and didn't venture into the city.
Home from Home
This was our second visit to the Isabel, and once again we were not disappointed. The staff were exceedingly friendly and competant. The garden surrounding the adequate pool was never overcrowded. Breakfast either inside our out was more than adequate and a cooked breakfast was available on request, at no extra cost.
We will certainly return to the Isabel.
