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.

... in the shadow of the better known Andalusian cities of Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla and Cadiz… it makes it all the more special, because I didn’t come expecting a whole lot, making it quite a pleasant surprise. I continue strolling up and down the ancient alleyways until the crowds finally start to thin out and I find myself in a gritty red light district with some very ugly and desperate looking prostitutes standing on the street corners… I guess Malaga has a bit of ...
Yesterday we packed up and left Granada to drive to Malaga. We took a detour to a town at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, driving through Lanjaron and Orgiva to get to Pampaneira. Pampaneira is a white town high up in the hills of the Sierra Nevada, the views of the mountains were amazing. Unfortunately the village is very touristy, a problem I've encountered throughout most ...
Sunday 23rd February 2014
It being Sunday, we are off to Marbella on the bus, and Kathleen goes to church, followed by a pleasant lunch overlooking the beach.
Waiting at the bus stop, on our way back to the campsite, Kathleen gets chatting to another woman, waiting for the bus. It turns out she too originates from Jarrow. It is almost like a normal ...
... mortified I just carried on washing my hair like it was the normal thing to do in salty, sea water. And later that evening we stopped at a large campsite at Bahia Santa Polo which looked as though it needed a complete makeover, with tatty shower blocks and tennis courts and a rusty merry go round covered in cobwebs. Practically deserted, the campsite led down to a lovely, sandy beach and so after a walk and something to eat we decided to stay for one night although we were woken ...
... but I’ve got to know when to call it quits. Maybe someday I’ll come back to this region and add some more kilometres to my Superhike.
Velez Malaga has a nice little historical district that is overshadowed by a hill with a towering castle which has been beckoning me since yesterday. So I have to do some uphill climbing one last time. At the top, surrounded by a small forest is an imposing square castle tower with ridges at the top like ...
