“a very enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

a spotlessly clean hotel,very professional & friendly staff,a very varied& well presented ch.oice of food. the hotel is situated in a good position for both the marina & torremolinus itself,would recommend taking the bus to torre,for the town centre& strolling back along the sea front,if a steep walk up steps is not your thing.all in all would have no hesitation in recommending the rui nautilus.

This hotel is located very near the beach, all the staff I encountered were pleasant. I stayed here on half board for two nights, the food was ok.
There are two sittings for dinner, 6pm and 7.45pm. The hotel was busy so the 6pm dinner time was somewhat rushed.
There is free car parking on the streets nearby and there is an excellent pub across the street named TOM'S TAVERN.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are excellent however rooms on ground floor at rear are dreadful.

Good Hotel - well situated on promanade to Benalmadina - our room balcony was in shade though (room 612). Entertainment very poor - mostly guitars and singers and one half hour Flamenco show. Food quite good - reasonable choices - Spanish night excellent. WiFi chargable - sad for this type of hotel as was safe key chargeable (14 euros a week). High standard of cleanliness in room - Television reception fair for English channels, could be better choice. Took excursions to Rhonda and Gibralter - good but expensive (over 200 euros for the two of us). Local buses very good and a lot cheaper - went to MIJAS (lovely place) and only cost 3 euros return each !!! Resort mostly closed as early in season - o.k. in day, rather dead at night !! Walk along promanade by beach very enjoyable - worth visiting the marina in Benalmadina. Watch out overcharging in shops - was charged twice on credit card for handbag (they said the card did not work first time). Overall a very enjoyable stay - the RIU chain is one we will use again - and the Thomson service was more than acceptable. (apart from those expensive excursions !!!).

Room Tip: Make sure your room is in main hotel (not annexe) on floor three and above (7 floors in total). If y...

I stayed at the Hotel Riu Nautilus with my wife, two children (aged seven and eleven months) and my parents for seven nights from 12 February 2012 to 19 February 2012.

The hotel was clean, the food at breakfast and dinner was plentiful and the rooms were pretty spacious - and contrary to earlier reviews the staff (both at the reception and throughout the rest of the hotel) were absolutely fabulous from start to finish. I suspect that the staff were pleased to make a fuss over my two children (bearing in mind that there were not too many children staying at the hotel at this time) - but to be honest this really made us feel at home and made our holiday!

I would certainly recommend others to stay at this hotel - it is in a prime location (near the Benalmadena Marina and La Carihuela Beach) and has excellent transport links to other attractions such as Malaga, Mijas and Gibraltar!

In summary - a fantastic holiday whilst others in the UK suffer with the cold weather!

The coach from the airport stopped on the road outside, with the exit door opening on to traffic in the centre of the road (one way street), We then found ourselves dragging cases across about 25 yard area of pebbles, set in concrete, then across a tarmac access area and finally up steps. We later realized that there was a ramp available, to the side, but this
is not immediately obvious to tired strangers arriving. There was no guidance from the coach driver, nor were any hotel staff present. The first part of this progress was not safe and the second was inconvenient.

On subsequent examination of the area, we realized why the coach did not leave the road to come to the hotel frontage, because at one side of hotel`s area, next to the road, there was a large hump in the tarmac, which would obviously risk the coach grounding.

One should be able to expect a four star hotel to have rectified their tarmac hump, but whilst it existed, to have provided guidance and assistance to new arrivals.

Having arrived at reception, we were then told that they could not forecast when it might be
possible to be able to bring the cases to our room. Having got up, at home that morning,
at 3.0 a.m, we wanted to have an undisturbed afternoon rest and so took our cases to the room ourselves.

The immediate area next to the hotel is the typical Costa Del Sol concrete urban sprawl, but as this was expected, it did not disappoint us. The area to the sea front is better, with a
pedestrian promenade, stretching long distances in either direction, one of these being to
the unusually attractive Benalmadena marina.

Having got over the sub standard arrival and reception, we discovered that we had got a room as high as requested. The outlook was across to flats opposite, but again not unexpected, in such an urban area.

From then on, were were able to enjoy the usual Riu high standard which we have come to expect from other Riu hotels at which we have stayed.
