Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Don Pedro Hotel Torremolinos
Good but not to good
stayed four days found the hotel clean rooms good size but no bigger than normal food was edible but only just definetly not for young people if you were 50 you would be a youngster but all that said hotel was clean tidy pool area looked good hotel staff helpfull so if you are looking for a quiet holiday this is the place for you .
Great Value For Money
We booked this hotel online and through Flyglobespan and stayed 7/16th July 2004.
Room was clean and tidy and the air conditioning worked fine.
Food was good and varied.
Grounds are spacious and well maintained. Plenty of room around the pools.
Handy for beach and sea front.
We will go again for a short break probably contacting the hotel direct for the best deal.
Great value - attractive outside/inside & reasonable food.
Needed to get away and went for a short break in June expecting to have to turn a blind eye to some things as price was not high. Had such an enjoyable time have been back another twice. Location is excellent as hotel is across road from beach and less than 10 mins from airport. Hotel grounds are well tended and laid out in such a way that families can congregate around pools and those of us without children can find a quieter area to enjoy the sun. Restaurant serves usual Spanish buffet fare - but perfectly enjoyable. Staff are very friendly. There is nightly entertainment which I found more amusing than entertaining (maybe it was the cuba libres!) but I'm booked for a fourth visit - can't beat it for value
I just stayed in this hotel in July 04 largely because of the favorable reviews on this site but I think they were really overating this hotel. It has NO non-smoking rooms, and they don't tell you this when they take your reservation request. Dance music is played loudly outside until midnight and if you inquire about this with the night clerk he will admonish you for inquiring. The furnishings are dated and drab, and not in a cool retro way but in a depressing way. The reception staff tried to charge me more than the rate I confirmed. (Bring your written confirmation!) I asked for an ATM machine and was told the closest one was a 20 minute walk away. Room temperature can only be adjusted by calling the maintenance supervisor. The rate I paid, 95 Euro's, was definitely too much for the value.
On the positive side, the maintenance staff does its best to keep the hotel clean.
Visited recently for a short break and was pleasently surprised by the quality and value for money. ideally situated near to the beach and the old town, would have no hesitation in going back again
Pedro is perfect!
The Don Pedro lives up to the Sol hotel reputation - clean, excellent value for money, great food, spacious rooms - it is in an ideal location for the Poseidon beach and is also not too far away from Calle San Miguel. The best of both worlds. You can get to the latter by walking up the hill behind the hotel, 10 minutes at most, or walking the promenade and taking the lift (50 cents). The lift is a welcome innovation given my many attempts at the ( One hundred and ) 39 Steps!
We went in March - weather awful for three days, but hey - booked online, the hotel gave us exactly what I requested - a sea view, but it was a northerly one, hence no sun. It would however be ideal in midsummer. I am going again to the Pedro in May and have requested a pool view. The single I have requested is in fact a double, so full marks there!
Stayed in the Don Pedro last summer and it was a great value for money hotel. The location was superb, the grounds and pool were welcoming and there was a vast choice of food in the hotel restaurant. Clean, efficient, and friendly - no complaints. Recommended to anyone.
excellent value for money friendly staff, food excellent. have been twice will certainly be returning. nothing to much trouble for the staff.
Why stay in Sol Don Pedro...
Hey, i stayed at sol don pedro a week ago.The service was very good and the staff speaks proper english.There are three swimming pools, kept very clean. there is animation for children and even the elder ones.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in form of buffet, continental.
You have a large selection.
The rooms are provided with af safe, for which you have to pay a small amount of money. The rooms dispose of an airconditioning system, a television and a telephone. Two seperate beds, very comfortable.
For young people, around my age who want to go out, you have a choice between the nice coctail bars, just a few steps from outside the hotel.
Or if you want to explore the night life and discohteques, you might want to go to "puerto marina". Only 5 km and cabs/taxi's are very common at reasonable prices!!So, if you're ever in Torremolinos, you will not regret staying in Sol Don Pedro Karolien from Belgium!!
I have been in Torremolinos for one week and it was a fantastic week, a week that I will never forget!!
Great animation team, very friendly people who were always ready to help.
Next year we are going back that's for sure!!!

... me here in Old Malaga. Across the main boulevard, I enter a more upscale old district packed with people out strolling, eating and partying in the many bars and restaurants. There’s a fascinating blend of glamour and history with trendy shops across from a massive ancient cathedral… and even a castle right smack in the middle of the action. I’m really starting to like this city—despite the bad start I had here. Malaga it seems is a bit ...
