ClubHotel Riu Costa del Sol
Ranked #11 of 71 Hotels in Torremolinos
Reviewed 5 October 2012

My wife and I stayed at the hotel, the last week in August and found it to be very good.
We stayed all inclusive and were very happy with everything.
You are allocated a table in one of two sittings for dinner, we requested and got one of the tables for two with a good gap from others some are a little close together. The staff were very good though, asking if we were happy on both the first and second night.I am sure we could have moved if we wanted to , we did see other people moving.
Lunch and Breakfast are open tables.
Whilst we were there the vast majority of guests were Spanish which was fine by us, but understandably the entertainment was probably more to their taste than ours. If you want UK style entertainment then perhaps you should look at Thompson Gold which we would also recomend !
The food was excellent, we have stayed in quite a few European all inclusive hotels and the food here was as good as any. The idea of it being the same every night is quite ridiculous, it is the same if you want to try and taste everything every night but you wouldnt do that in any other restaraunt so why here ?
The cooking stations were very good and the two sittings meant that even though the hotel was full it never felt crowded, particularly if you left going to the dining room until a little
later.
The pool area was good and we never had any problems with sun beds, those nearest the pool were reserved by people, usually with young children which is fair enough, we werent bothered where we sat and always found somewhere.
The room wasnt the best 60 something I think, not a very good view but it was clean .We didnt spend a lot of time in our room so it didnt spoil anything.
I must admit I do like the Riu idea of self service for wine and beer, it does make life very easy, they also gave us bottles of water for the room which isnt always the case in our experience.
The walks from the hotel were good we walked out in the day and in the evening and found it very pleasant.
The staff are excellent very attentive and helpful
The price we paid was also very attractive and I wouldnt hesitate in recommending this hotel

me and my partner ,stayed here for 5 nights early September. Hotel is 10 mins from the airport by train,exit at la Colina, then less than a 10 min walk away,and easy to find.Rooms were a bit dated but spacious and cleaned daily. The food was very good with plenty of choice meats, pasta,rice dishes,burgers etc. The pool bar area also had a self service area for tea/coffee/beer/wine and various soft drinks, which was nice. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we would fully recomend this hotel

Just returned to our cold rainy weather and the day we left Costa Lago I wished we'd booked 2wks instead of 11 nights. The hotel is spotless, all the staff are friendly and the choice and quality of the food was brilliant. There isn't much in the way of entertainment but if you're after a relaxing holiday then this hotel fits the bill. The manager is always walking round the dining room smiling and greeting people and we've seen him helping out when neccessary which is nice. Bus stop outside hotel takes you into Torremolinos for 1.22euros. The town runs very steeply downhill to the promenade then it's a nice 30 mins walk back. Also theres a poor itv reception on channel 16 ( handy to watch the chase before dinner ).Enjoy your hol there!

Room Tip: We were in newer extension which was spacious and our room 393 got sun pm with pool view.

you pay a premium for a Rui hotel, then find that its not rui quality.The indications are this was a princess hotel judging from window stickers, and the hotel is old &tired including the pool and sun beds.
Rooms are not available until mid afternoon, wasting half a days holiday if you arrive before then.
The hotel has been extending past the original design footprint such that they can only manage the amount of people when nearing capacity by allocating a table number ,assuming one is available when you arrive,with up to six other people , at two sittings at set times,and beware if your late at the pool salad bar, as you'll be asked to leave .
Reasonable food , good beach access, and weather fine helped balance the holiday,
Hotel is Two stars based on value for money

Stayed here for a week mid September. The room was very nice, quite large and spot lessly clean, cleaners attended everyday and did a brilliant job. We really enjoyed the food with something new to try every day, the roast beef was lush and cooked to perfection, everything was really fresh and served hot, the cheese and biscuits was a great little extra. It was a bit of a obstacle course to get to and from your table as there so close but it wasnt a major issue.

We spent everyday but one day on the beach which is a stones throw away and the sunbeds on the beach are really comfy, there is a nice breeze most of the time on the beach which was nice and you can get sardines cooked on a log bbq which are fab. The day we spent by the hotel pool was also nice a little cramped but still enjoyable, we just prefer the beach.

The only slight complaint I have is about the outside terrace area to sit in the evening by the bar, its a bit drab and uninviting, no music, not much lighting quite dull really, just a bit of sprucing up would make the atmosphere much beter in this area. Nice drinks though and really good service at the bar. All the staff we met were lovely, really friendly and helpful.

We were a little disappointed that our all inclusive ended at 3.00pm the day we were leaving, we arrived at midnight and so missed a full day and werent leaving untill midnight, I understand the food had to stop to make room in the restaurant but we couldnt even get a drink which seemed a bit harsh. We just popped down the road for a meal and a few beers which was nice.

Overall the pros deffinately outway the cons and I would recommend this hotel and torremalinos as a lovely holiday destination and hope to return soon.
