Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Don Pablo Torremolinos
We stayed at Don Pablo on 6th to 13th August 2003. First of all, its an average four star hotel of the Sol MeliÓ Group. Our pros and cons: - personnel: helpful, obliging; weak language skills - hotel room with balcony: always tidy, good furnished, sea view, no things to fix, nice air-conditioning system; simple wall radio, no ventilation in bathroom, noisy animation programme before midnight (concerns hotel rooms on the eastside) hotel facility: playground, indoor swimming pool, two swimming pools for children, pool restaurant, deckchairs and sunshades for free, three internet terminals, daily pool animation; small round swimming pool for adults hotel position: right at the beach and promenade (bars, restaurants and shops); 10 minutes on foot to downtown, MÓlaga Airport just 15 minutes away, building site in neighbourhood food buffet: various, 07:30h to 10:30h (breakfast), early breakfast around 05:00h, 18:45h to 22:00h (dinner); often same cooking, beverages extra charged (e.g.: mineral water, 5 decilitres = EUR 1.70) guests: mainly British, Spanish and Italian, a small number of Germans, estimated average age around 35. To sum it up: an uncomplicated hotel in its class. I hope this short review was helpful.
Still a nice hotel
Stayed here for the second time June 2003, still a lovely hotel, great food, pleasant staff, will be going back again.
Excellent hotel. Staff are really friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and the standard of cleanliness was excellent. Would definitely go back.
We nearly cancelled when we found out from a friend, two days before leaving, about the building works; we're glad we didn't. We were there for the week before & week after Easter. The new building is 5 floors & overlooks the pool area, the skeleton was up when we left & we didn't hear much from the site. We asked for a room on the opposite side & got it, nice view from the 8th floor, we heard no noise from outside the hotel but the rooms are not well insulated from each other. Our room was 'old' style & clean, The bathroom was pretty new & excellent. The hotel is well positioned, great sunbathing & pool area. The staff were all friendly, food was good, but a bit boring after 2 weeks on half-board just like anywhere, plenty of alternatives nearby.
Loved the hotel
hotel well positioned, rooms, staff, food, facilities all excellant.
stay at don pablo march 2nd to 9th 2003 very good hotel excellent food and very nice staff room cleaned every day still building work going on but wasn,t a problem would go back again
We just returned after staying at the Don Pablo Hotel for two weeks during February 2003. It was a well run hotel with a beautiful lobby, nice lounge, two outdoor pools, and one indoor pool, lawn-bowling, and several conference rooms, and internet facilities. The staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms all appeared to have a balcony (not necessarily with ocean view). Although there is construction nearby, we could still find quiet places to read and enjoy the sun. We found the meals to be very bland but edible. The location is excellent, close to the Bojondillo promenade and the old town. There were many restaurants nearby.Our biggest complaint was that our room was due for remodeling as the carpets were stained, woodwork in need of painting, etc. There was an unbearable sewage odor in the bathroom. After complaining, their solution was to put mothballs in the bathroom to help cover up the odor! If you encounter this problem, my advice is to request a room change IMMEDIATELY. Do not wait for them to fix the problem or most likely you will also see the mothballs!
Fantastic Hotel,this is the second year running we have been here and we will be back next year without a doubt !!!
Current building work next door!!!
The hotel is currently building another hotel within the grounds of Don Pablo. At present the work is apparently at LEVEL 3 i.e supposedly not sufficient to disrupt you holiday!!!!
Lovely hotel despite foundations been dug next door .... noisy very early a.m but I spent a lot of time away from the hotel so it did not disrupt my holiday too much but I would say that if you were to want to stay within the hotel i.e around the pool etc.. it would cause substantial disruption and annoyance to your holiday.
Building work due for completion before summer!!!
Lovely hotel and ffod excellent.
Stayed here for a week found the hotel to be extremely well run, lovely food, would reccomend it to eveyone.

... ended up at the lunch stop and after a hearty lunch we were ready to go. I was a little disappointed with my first couple of hours riding but it was starting to come back to me and I was really enjoying the riding and the weather was like Goldilocks porridge, not too hot, not too cold but just right. The next couple of hours passed really quickly, my confidence was growing and the trails were fast and varied then we went through a little stream. I had ...
... there it was…the sparkling, shimmering, calm, cool waters of el mar de mediterraneo! It was a truly glorious sight and I felt a sense of peace, awe and inspiration that is awakened within only by the presence of beautiful white sand beaches, warm yellow sunshine and clean, clear blue-green water lapping at the shore. I hadn’t felt this happy and satisfied since my ladies weekend in Lisboa ...
We found a nice camping at Almayate around 2 pm, got ourselves organized and had some lunch. We had a drink at the camping café/restaurant first and than went to check out the beach. We stayed there for the afternoon until 6 and then got ready for our paella that we ordered at 7 pm. It was pretty good and we enjoyed it sitting on the terrace till late. We had phoned Nico and Riet, friends of my mother to see if they wanted to meet us tomorrow in ...
... in Granada the bus takes us to the Ala Humbra. We walk all through the Magnificent Moorish buildings and then the gardens for two hours. Anyone wanting to visit must book as only 300 people can go through the gates every hour.

... the place (after finding the same roundabout 3 times and a two way cliff road that fits one car!). When we got to the complex we were stunned, palm trees, ocean, pool, and 32 degrees... Amazing. This is where we start the tropical part of our vacation. Making it a little later than planned, we went to the store for supplies, we spent our first night sipping sangria and bbqing on the rooftop until dark. Perfection. ...
