... from the 11th century. It was built on a Roman town; the Roman ampitheatre that was discovered in 1951 just outside its entrance is an interesting juxtaposition to the Islamic architecture. The Alcazaba is made up of towers, mosques and buildings and surprisingly beautiful gardens within its walls.

We spent time re-packing and cleaning up for the trip until Ruben returned home.
As it was Imogens 25th birthday we arranged a booking at a restaurant; as far as she knew it was something special for our last night together. Ruben snuck into the local supermarket for a ...
... All the others quickly bundled their stuff into their sheets and disappear so quickly. Obviously the cops are on their way, they must have a way of communicating down the line to know when to pack up and when its safe to come back. Some poor girl about 5yrs old was getting her hair braided, she gets rushed off behind a bar, the woman who is doing it has her kids there too, the little boy of about 2 or 3 picks up the stool and rushes away too. Pretty cute but crazy having your ...

So yeah most of Malaga was a joke; just getting wasted, sweating profusely in the heat, enduring reggaeton music at the clubs, staying out till sunrise, then sleeping till the afternoon. Only other stuff we did was hit the beach, with its ****** sand and ...

When it stops raining, we take a stroll up the mountain through beautiful pine forests and muddy streams. We pass by a waterfall the colour of coffee from all the rain washing down the mud from the hillsides. Some new age hippies have set up a shack serving meals and offering overnight accommodation.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Timor Apartments Torremolinos
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at this hotel, 2 x adults and 2 x 16 year olds. The 1 bedroom apartment was a good size and the facilities were clean and in good order. The towels were changed every 2nd day, and the linen once a week as we expected. Before going I had read other reviews about the food and was a wee bit anxious. The food is quite basic but there is enough variety to suit all (no spicy food) and we were never disappointed. Very close to the beach where we adults spent many days by the sea. Didn't realise that we would be so close to Benalmadena, but it was great walking to the harbour there or along in the other direction to Torremolinos, lovely walking area all flat next to the beach. If you are thinking about using a kettle though one word of caution - take your own travel one or use a pot provided, the kettle at the hotel costs 18 euros with a 30 euro deposit, if you are hiring a car, the parking will cost you a further tarif and another deposit of 30 euros - there is plenty of parking space in the surrounding streets, only stay away from the streets just next to the beach as they get really crowded!
Pity about the guests
The SOL TIMOR is superbly located just off the beach, we enjoyed our stay, the only black mark going to some of the younger guests who tried their hardest to spoil the otherwise clean & descent surroundings. I guess we were just unlucky! We would use again anyway.
I was very impressed with the Sol Timor Apartments. I stayed there 2 weeks at end of June 2002. The weather was excellent - not one bad day. The apartments were good, brilliant sea view and a lot of nice garden to lie in the sun. Located right on beach and marina with plenty of pubs/shops and restaurants near by. I am going back this year and can't wait!!! Would definitely recommend.
Wasnt very clean
stayed in these appartments last may were ok but were very rarely changed or cleaned the room was very basic and there were ants all over our kitchen we had to ask for someone to come in to clean the room and change the bed linen after 1 week they finally came in to do it however there was good points about this hotel there was a beautiful view and the balcony was nice the bar also done 2 for 1 drinks for one hour each day the pool was also lovely i wouldnt stay in these apatments again but they werent the worse ive seen.
April in Spain
Studio apartment was most acceptable. The weather was not. They said it was the coldest April in 100 years! The hotel restaurant had a fine buffet breakfast. The euro has made a difference in the cost of everything. As the tour director said, nothing is cheap any more. But it is still beautiful.
TOP OF THE RANGE HOLIDAY
Ive being to the Timor Sol for the last four years and i love it . Ive being all over Europe but no holiday can compare to one at the timor Sol. I am going back this year in July with my father and our two girlfreinds its going to be the best holiday yet as every year it gets better> P,S. I REALLY RECOMMEND TORREMOLINOS AND THE TIMOR SOL TO YOUNG COUPLES OR A FEW MATES . TRUST ME IVE BEING THERE FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS AND IM GOING BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We stayed at the Sol Timor three years and loved it. We are heading back this year it was so good. My husband and I are a young couple and we found the apartments catered for all ages. The location is fantastic, right across from the beach and a few minutes walk from the Harbour.
The people are friendly, the apartments are basic but what do you expect once they are clean and tidy and they are!
Sol Timor is a great place to stay.
I have just come back from spending a week at Sol Timor and I really really loved it. I'm 18 and went there with 5 of my friends looking for decent but basic accomidation, and that's exactly what we got. The people staying there are fantasic...the age range is very diverse and everyone is energetic and there for a good time. The poolside area is great and even if you don't like it you have the beach right across the road. The only bad point I would make about the place is that at nighttime people can tend to get a little noisy every now and then and you're in for a surprise if you expect to always get a decent nights sleep. Since I was there for a fun holiday I managed to survive on a few hours a night. Now I'm at home and really miserable because I miss the place so much...guess that shows you how great the place is!
Fantastic holiday at sol timor
We have just come back from sol timor, we had a fantastic time. We booked it on the internet, we had no problems, reservations e-mailed us back promptly. When we arrived the reception staff were really helpful and the maids were ever so freindly. Although the apartments were quite basic they were clean and tidy and the large bath towels were great. We met a couple there called Lenny and Marie, they had a son called Jack and they were from England.(Lenny was Welsh) They have been holidaying there for most of there lives. Look out for them if you go in june, you will have the time of your lives.
We stayed at this hotel in the same room for 3 weeks but when our children tried to locate us, the desk at reception told them the wrong room (the room they told them wasn't even in the building where we were. After leaving numerous messages, and not having us reply, our children were frantic as no-one had received the postcards we mailed on the second day in Spain. We asked constantly at the desk if there were any messages for us and were always told "no" Our fault was that we had agreed to not call each other except in an emergency. My birthday fell while we were in Spain and even begging the front desk to tell me that my family in Canada wanted to wish me Happy Birthday, I never got the message. My advice is if you are staying at this hotel, please let your loved ones know what room you are in as they certainly don't know or care at the reception desk. All in all, we had a really good holiday and would recommend this hotel. Ann & Dave Craig
