This hotel is very modern indeed, rooms are excellent. Dressing gowns and slippers are provided. You can get pool towels from reception for 2 euros and change towel as often as you like. The balcony is good and looks over the pool area. Pool was great and very nice sunbeds, when we visited most days were the only ones at...

Our stay here for 10 days was excellent in every way. The service the welcome the hygiene were super. The pool was perfect and plenty of different places and levels to bathe. We would stay here again. In the centre of everything but quietly tucked away from the hassle

Stayed last year and thought it was the best little hotel in torremolinos. A little bit disappointed this time around. Booked with bookings.com as we did last year. I had asked through the special requirements on the site for a room in one of the higher floors when we arrived we were given a room on the 1st floor. I...

Amazing hotel, it had everything we needed. Stayed here for 5 days in September and could not fault it at all. Pool area, a real sun trap and towels are available to hire, so no need to take you own. Room was perfect, even had a firm bed which I prefer, and a fridge so you can keep your own...

Despite the good reviews this hotel gets, its customer service leaves a lot to be desired. The staff are really nice, but management are deplorable. We spent a week there in September. The complaint we had was regarding the water, which was luke warm and cold. Despite reassurances, the problem was not resolved, despite requests to the management. One manager...

Me and my sister choose this hotel for the adults only feature. We both have small children (ages 2 and 5) so this was a fantastic choice. From the moment we walked in it felt amazing. The blonde Lady that checked us in was so lovely and made us feel so welcome. First impressions of the hotel are brilliant. We...

We paid full rate for a large room, however the bed was so uncomfortable I had to borrow cushions from the loungers. Most staff were ok but several were rather snooty and unhelpful. The pool was very small and too shallow to swim in. Breakfast was exactly the same every day, so boring after a day or two.

Adult only hotel within minutes of the beach and ammenities. Great pool and bar area and not at all busy during our stay and quiet considering the hotels proximity to the hustle and bustle. Nothing was a bother for the staff. Would recommend a balcony room and the Gin and Tonics.

Very chilled out adults only hotel in a great location. Small enclosed pool area, but that didnt bother us, we were at the beach mostly. the one day we did spend by the pool was very peaceful and relaxing. the hotel itself and bedrooms are spotless. Id definitley return! Thank you to Elena for all your help and recomendations.
