“Relaxing Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Just returned from a short 4 day break to this hotel and was not disappointed by the level of service and accommodation.
To be fair I have stayed in this resort 8 times now and this is my second time at this hotel. On the first occasion, also off season, I was given a room adjacent to the street which was sunny during the day but I could imagine being a bit noisy in summer months. This time I was allocated a room to the rear of the hotel and would confirm that the works ongoing to the villa opposite, as mentioned in Mrhilton review, are still ongoing although thankfully nearing completion. These works didn't really bother me but I would have to say that in the villa directly opposite is a dog who seemed to bark at every sound on the first night of my stay. The dog seems to be left out all day and night.
The location of the hotel is very good as is the service and food on offer. Ataxi from the rank just along the street will cost 20 euros to the airport which is reasonable as an alternative to going up the hill to the station in the town.
Overall a very good hotel and by far one of the best in the resort.

Room Tip: Choice of room depends on when you go, a room to the front would be best off season.

Spent one week at this hotel in March this year. Although early in the season, the hotel was fairly busy, but nothing was too much trouble for the staff . Rooms very clean and cleaned well every day. There was a reasonable choice of food at each meal time, with champagne served at breakfast one morning. The downside to this hotel is if you hire a car, as the hotel is in such a popular area that parking is at a premium. Although there are spaces outside the hotel, it is very difficult to find one when you want one. The hotel does have its own car park underground but it is very expensive which doesn't encourage you to use it, I believe it was 11 euros a day, which soon adds up! We will definitely return one day and recommend this hotel to others.

Just returned from a one week break at this Riu hotel, and although there are niggles, there are no complaints!!

On arrival we were met by a "manager" handing out champagne. At Reception we were offered a choice of two rooms. One that got the sun but overlooked the road and could be noisy. The other that got very little sun but was overlooking some villas and in a quiet part of the hotel. We chose the latter. What the Receptionist failed to point out was that some renovation work was being carried out on one of the properties which needed to have drills and hammers going from 8am until 5pm. Fortunatley we were out all day so we only got the problem early and late. First niggle!!

The room was the usual RIU room. Clean, plenty of storage space. Minibar/fridge which was filled every day if you could afford it!!! Second niggle!! Bed linen spotless and changed once during the week. I'm sure Riu used to give two changes in a week before TUI had something to do with them. The bathroom was more than adequate and soap/shampoo replenished every day as were the towels.

The food was excellent bearing in mind the number of peole to be catered for. You should never come out of the dining room hungry and all the hot food was hot not tepid like some buffets. Third niggle is birds flying around the area near the door and perching on picture frames deciding what to eat next!!

The pool area was clean and well kept However, (fourth niggle), there were a fair number of pigeons knocking around crapping all over the tiles. I can't blame the hotel for this, more the idiots who were feeding them. The pool was cool, but as the weather was hot when we were there it felt good.

The entertainment was fair. Different every night. Some of the acts were stealing a living, but others were entertaining and very watchable.. Nothing going on Sundays.

The position of the hotel is excellent. Lots of walking to be done on a long, long promenade. Flat too, so ideal for wheelchairs and scooters.

I would certainly go back to this hotel and can recommend it to you.

This was our third visit to this hotel the first visit two years ago and one in April this year.
Cost savings the first appears to be the pool it does not seem to be heated to any degree where previously it was comfortable to get in, this visit was a deep breath and go for it.

Restaurant, previously there had been selected meals cooked in the middle of the restaurant, none during this visit. Breakfast was the availability of fresh fruit no bananas all week, my thought also was there had been a small reduction in the number of staff.

Though I have complained a little, it is still a hotel I would return to as the staff are always pleasant and do seem to be working harder. The hotel is clean comfortable and a great location for walking into Torremolinos.
