So, I can report that the rain in Spain does not stay mainly on the plain. We are in the centre of an impressive storm this morning. Saves watering the plants though.
I can report that J is gearing up to do an entry but don't hold your breath.
Meanwhile here are a few random photos.
... seem to be built on the edge of cliffs and spring up from nowhere, interconnected by winding roads, some wide and sweeping, others just wide enough for a car with a succession of the tightest hairpin bends you would ever want to ride up or down. After riding a wide road with long, graceful sweeping bends we stopped for fuel and Bob came up with the analogy of riding it was like skiing. This was a great analogy as the road we had just ridden was like ...
... working in a bar run by Scots! The gift shop was selling an all natural hand cream fully home made with essential oils and herbs made by Paul no less! He invented his own recipe for the balm to aid the dryness and cracking that mountain climbers suffer with their hands hanging on to ropes and winches etc. he has patented it as CRAG WAX. I bought a little pot. Not sure about the crags but it makes brilliant lip balm. On my own again now. Next stop ...
... 8217;s old stomping ground, and then went on to one of the only remaining Roman ruins in Andalucía, El Teatro Romano- the Roman Ampitheatre. Jane then treated us to a long lunch in the square where needless to say we enjoyed a few vino tintos and one or two cervezas . We parted in the mid afternoon as Sue and Jane went to the Picasso Museum. It’s ...
... headed to the Worst Irish Pub in Spain, that is how they advertised, only to find out they didn’t serve food. We had run into Paula and Mike and they had eaten at a Pizza Place next to Burger King, so we headed there. I got a Margherita Pizza, Derek got Tuna and Larry got a Bolognaise which looked like hamburger. After supper we headed back to the hotel. Since the internet was so slow, I read my book until bedtime. Derek watched TV and Larry was on his ...

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.
