Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Al-Andalus Torremolinos
this was the best deal i have ever found on the net. £40 got me a massive triple room (even though there was only me n my boyfriend) with a massive double bathroom, balcony with pool view, delicious buffet dinner and breakfast all included!!! the staff were very pleasant. was still a bit too nippy to use the pool but it looked very nice adn clean and the gardens were nice too. in a quiet area but a very short ride from the train station and short walk from the beach!
i wud definatly go back if they offered me the same price again!!!
Fantastic,loved the al andalus
Having stayed at the al andalus 4star i think this hotel should be 5 star wonderful helpful staff from arriving until departure maid service everyday wonderfully clean great gardens and pool area good views the food was excelent having stayed from 31-01-06 to 08-02 06 location we found good a few minuets walk up hill into torromolinos accross the road and a short walk to the beach where you can follow to the wonderful marina in benalmadena or follow the headland to torromolinos good night life and free entertainment in the hotel we will visiting again very shortly and for anyone who likes Italian food the hotel has a great restaraunt at the front super modern
We have just returned after spending five nights at this hotel. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the place and friendly manner of the staff. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the out of season atmosphere sitting in the local bars and restaurants. You need to be aware the beach is a good walk from the hotel and is up hill on the way back but the coast line was beautiful and impressive and we would definately return and recommend.
stayed at this hotel for a week in february 2005. unfortunately, due to heavy rain during our entire stay, had to spend quite a lot of time in our room. fortunately, we were able to secure an excellent rate for our stay but would have been very upset if we had paid the advertised price!! although the room layout was good, with a good balconyand an excellent bathroom - private within the room - the carpet was heavily soiled and the room had an interconnecting door and all activity next door could be heard!
The staff were not overly friendly but they were helpful. however, breakfast was poor, despite there being quite a large choice of continental pate and cheese. the rolls were never fresh and the fruit juice had been watered down so much that it did not taste like the original article.
the hotel has the potential to be very good but it would appear that the owners were resting on past laurels!
Very enjoyable stay
Stayed in this hotel in January/February. Very quiet, no bingo and singalongs!! Lovely staff, very clean public areas and bedrooms/bathrooms. Food: Didn't like the way guests had to lay their own tables at breakfast. Breakfast limited choice and also dinner. Good starters and ok sweets, but the main courses tasted better than appearances. Some improvements needed. Only a five minute walk to the sea front and about 10 mins to the centre. Bus stops outside of hotel. Would go back again.
Excellent value for money
Myself and my wife stayed here for 3 nights Dec 2004. The rates were very reasonable and included a buffet breakfast which had a very extensive choice. The rooms were a great size, very clean with a great bathroom and nice balcony. There is not much in the immediate vicinity of the hotel although a 10 minute walk will bring you to Torremolinos centre and Taxis are readily available and quite cheap, the hotel reception will call a Taxi and we found they were there in minutes.
We would certainly stay here again.
Lovely break in a very good hotel
we booked this hotel blind for a short break and were very pleased indeed with the standard of food and the overall care in which the hotel is looked after and is kept immaculate.you will not be dissapointed with this hotel
Very good value for money
Have just returned from a week staying at the Royal Al Andalus hotel. We could not find much information about this hotel before we travelled, and were a bit worried about what to expect. However, we were very pleased with the standard of the hotel. The rooms were spacious and very clean, as was the rest of the hotel. Staff were pleasant, and the food good, although there was not a lot of choice. Would recommend this hotel as good value for money.
Better than expected
This hotel was far better than we were expecting it to be. It was spotlessly clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Very good value for money. We will definitely stay there again.
Made my trip!!!
Went to Spain in April 2003. Was a fantastic trip. The hotel was spotless, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The buffet meals were outstanding! Thank you to everyone there, I'll be back someday.

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, ...
... on the beach, probably partly due to it being too early in the day and also it’s not yet the holiday season. It did get busier at the east end of our walk but still fairly sparse. Most people were lying trying to get a tan but it was a bit optimistic of them as by now the mist was a bit thicker and it was a little cooler. There were two older couples walking in front of us and one pair could hardly walk, stumbling regularly in the loose sand, but they ...
... bits of course! Lunch at Taco Bell was followed by shopping and it was are 4 by the time we got back to the campsite to pay. We decided to head straight off to a new campsite near Marbella and arrived at Camping Carbapino justin time to get setup before sunset. Our pitch here is right by the heated pool so boys went straight for a swim whilst we prepared dinner and had a chat to the retired couple from Yorkshire next ...
