As stated, there's no direct flights from Santiago back to the UK and so the options were Santiago - Madrid - London, Santiago - Barcelona - Cardiff or Santiago - Malaga - Cardiff, we obviously chose the latter. Leaving Galicia was double edged, I love the area, the people, the food but I'm shocked at the decline. I'm also so looking forward to seeing family in Benalmadena especially my niece that I haven't seen in over a year except on FaceTime. We arrived in Malaga at around 2:30am, ...
... friend who took the four of us to his Peugeot hatchback.
The luggage got in without a problem and I took the middle back seat, snuggled between my fellow traveler and the lady from South Hampton. The driver was incredibly entertaining despite the fact that he only knew a handful of English words. Luckily a lot of Spanish words have the same Latin base as in English. He passionately explained how Mercedes were "mucho money" but useless. His cheap little ...
Last day in Malaga and we finally went on a walking tour. The girl was really talkative and there were times she'd just sit us down to start talking about Franco and Spain back then (I think I found this a bit repetitive because I have read about this before. It was good info though). Overall, she was good and we finally found out why Spanish people don't eat good beef (a subjective observation subject to contention!) - ...

Loved the Hotel
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.
We found it very good value at 70 euro a night and if we were to go here again we would probably stay at this hotel.
I would hire a car, we hired a convertible and visited Ronda, Mijas, Malaga, Benalmedena, Granada and Alahambra in our weeks stay. Its worth going to the crocodile park where you can have a photo with a baby crocodile and going to the horse and flamenco show (food was not great but for 40 euro you get 2 shows, 3 course meal, free wine and champagne, free bus service)
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.
Really friendly hotel
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!
The hotel is amazingly clean. We saw them cleaning everywhere - everyday!
The bar and the food are good value for money, especially if you fancy a little light lunchtime snack and a couple of cervezas!
The location of the hotel is superb - right opposite a beach, and within close range of several restaurants, bars and cafes! Perfect for those looking for a lazy holiday where you don't need to venture too far to get anything you want.
The only down side to the hotel was that you cannot have a late check-out, but they are more than happy to keep your bags in a locked room next to recpetion while you wait to go to the airport!
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.
