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.

Beach bum life! Today we spent the entire day on the beach. We rented lounge chairs and umbrellas and relaxed. It was a refreshing day. Jayden, the youngest of the group, went crazy between the beach and pool. It was hard to pull him away to get ready for dinner. It was also Michelle's birthday! The family went out to dinner and ice cream to celebrate. After a few of us went out for birthday drinks. We kept it relatively chill since we have an early morning for a day trip to ...
... beach massage. A lovely relaxing setting and the Thai man was very good and worked all those sore back and neck muscles from this tough sailing. Cheeky drinks on board then we headed into town to meet Steve and Ann for dinner in the old town - several bottle of wine later and a few rums we head home at 2am. Fun night but not the best move with an early start in the morning as we head for ...
... strange – his friends and the shop assistant guided him through the lengthy process with animated discussion while we tried to look the other way.
That evening we were determined to have the huge meat kebabs that the 'chiringuitos' barbequed to perfection! Our restaurant was right on the beach – beautiful setting, beautiful weather!
... pedestrian gate was open at the exit. We crossed the highway at the Miraflores bridge then back along to the bottom of the hill. It was noticeable at this point that the temperature was several degrees warmer than at the beach and it was quite debilitating. We both had to stop for a rest about halfway up the hill as we were exhausted by the heat. We eventually podded our way back to the flat and had only just sat down to recover when Sandy appeared to ask for ...
... 31/8). After some initial difficulty locating Europcar we were soon organised with our VW Pollo and we set off to drive the 50 odd Kim's to Marbella. The trip did take us longer than expected as there were a few wrong turns that did raise the stress levels a little but eventually we found our way to Marbella and after asking for directions a couple of times we arrived at Apartmentos Meditteraneo. We originally decided on the car because we thought the apartment was ...
