The hotel was perfect, spotless clean. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room was quiet as we had asked for. The entertainment at night was usual for a hotel. Pedro the waiter was very efficient he was observant and seemed to know what you needed before you asked.

We stayed at the Rui Monica in Nerja last year and enjoyed the hotel so much we decided to stay at the sister hotel Rui Nautilus in Torremolinos. The hotel more than lived up to our expectations. We cannot fault this hotel in any way what so ever. Right from checking in to our

Just returned from a short break at this lovely hotel. Staff work very hard to please guests especially in the dining area. Hotel rooms and public areas spotlessly clean and pool area a delight. Earlier reviews warned me to take my own kettle etc so not a problem but would have

I wouldn't worry about the age of the hotel clientelle tbh, it depends on the time of year. Out of season there will be more retired people. The hotel is in the perfect location, close enough to the marina (about 400 yards) if you require late night bars, etc. There are plentiful Irish bars and small bars in the vacinty of the hotel on the street and side-streets adjacent to the hotel. We are in out 50's. In July it seemed there was about 70% of people aged 50+. For a young couple the hotel is of high quality and comfort. We didn't stay in the hotel for entertainment, we went outside directly onto the promenade where you can either turn right for the marina or left offers a walk all the way (flat) around to Torremolinos town if you wish. Great hotel, don't worry. More lively for young people may be the hotel next door "Sol House Aloha". We have stayed here also. I prefer the Nautilus but the Aloha is great too.

"Any room with a sea view is great"
"High floor best view and quiet, but hotel is quiet anyway."
"Room 241 has partial sea view and looks towards marina"
"Rooms on the south seem to get the sun, we were facing the pool (facing north/east)."
"Ask for a room facing west, high floor and you will get evening sun."
US$ 101 - US$ 257 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
