stayed for one week end september and after reading previous reviews was not looking forward to arriving at this hotel. Hotel is basic but clean and spacious rooms if all you are looking for is a bed, shower and good nights sleep. staff friendly and breakfast sufficient.

On Arrival to the room 3 out of 4 lights not working...... 1 was faulty wiring. The room was VERY tired and in need of decoration. The carpet smelt old and was dirty under foot.

We stayed in Hotel La Barracuda - torremolinos in 2011. We spend there 1 week. Hotel has more then 20 years and need refurbishment. The pluses of the hotel is a staff and great location next to the beach. Hotel breakfast is quite poor.

This hotel is predominantly spanish as opposed to a typical European holiday resort, in so far as the day to day routines revolve around the spanish way of life. The buiding & rooms are shabby, no facilities other than the pool. Breakfast food quality is poor. Staff are unfriendly, some rude, bar staff prioritised the Indigenous & ignored others. Seems...

I chose this hotel as it was supposed to be a 4 star, but when we got there it was being renovated with no previous warning on the booking website. There were cables hanging from the ceilings, others that were taped up. I asked for a non-smoking room, but when we went in our room it stunk of stale smoke....
