Sol Timor Apartamentos by Melia
Ranked #14 of 71 Hotels in Torremolinos
Reviewed 17 October 2017

Not a great start to our stay - check in was fast but abrupt, no major greetings or explained anything about the hotels facilities or the schedule of activities etc. There seemed to be events going on throughout the day at the pool so a schedule would have been helpful. I got no help with my suitcase either and had to lug it up 5 or 6 steps to the lift. We were given a room on the 11th floor, there was a terrible smell of sewerage as the day went on so we complained to reception. A nice man came straight away & sprayed the bathroom and vents, the fumes of the spray were worse than the sewerage and next morning there was still a smell so I complained to reception who moved us immediately with no fuss. I was offered a room on the same floor which I refused and got a room on the 6th floor instead, this was much better and we had no issues with smell for the remainder of our trip.

Room was spotlessly clean as was the kitchen and bathroom. Theres enough for 2 people only, no extra plates/cups/cutlery. There was also a lack of plugs, one for the TV and one in a far bottom corner beside the patio door so I'd bring an extension lead. Also no bedside lockers or shelving for bits and bobs.

Very basic but you get what you pay for & for the price it was fine. Location is really good with a secure gate onto the promenade, we spent most of our time in the sister hotel next door, next time I would pay extra & stay there.

Room Tip: Try stick to a lower floor - hotel seems to have sewerage issues the higher you go.

Dear Cazflan,

Thank you for choosing our hotel in Torremolinos and giving us such a complete feedback, always important for us.
We're glad to know you liked the second room we gave you, found everything well cleaned and felt better there.

Concerning to the information given during check-in time, we are disappointed to read we didn't inform you properly; this process is the most important for us and always give to our guests the information sheet and activities program. Sorry about that.

I would like to inform you that there is an elevator just in font of reception for the 5 stairs between reception and the main lift, this can be used of course for carry suitcases.
We don't have porter service as we are apartments but, if anyone have troubles, any of us can help.
So please, don't doubt to ask us next time.

Looking forward to welcome you back very soon in Sol Timor, you home in Torremolinos.
Yours sincerely,

Elvira Bautista
Quality Manager

4th time staying here in the last 2 years! It's a great location your close to the harbour with great restaurants and the hotel is surrounded by Irish bars and some great restaurants. Pool was good for the kids and there was entertainment for them daily. The beach is on your doorstep too. Rooms are old but always clean and tidy. Fantastic sunrise if you get a sea view!

The sol Timor is overall a great aparthotel, the staff are very friendly and helpful and most of the facilities are very good.
The studio apartments that we stayed in however are in need of renovation as there was paint peeling from the walls and ceilings, some of the tile work was chipped and broken and the mattresses were very hard to sleep on.
Although even with the few faults we had we had a lovely holiday and the staff were great.....

Room Tip: Really paint, fix the broken tiles and better mattresses would go a long way to making the holiday e...

Just back from a 3 night stay at Sol Timor and had to leave a review!

Brilliant apartment with excellent views - we upgraded to room with sea view and it was stunning.

Apartment itself is basic but all you would need for a stay. Bed is a bit hard but no worse than most hotels abroad.

Pool was great and the team doing entertainment really good fun. It is right beside the beach with lots of places to eat. I would say if you walk a little further down the promenade places are a bit cheaper.

Food wise in evening there is lots of variety just minutes walk from hotel. Would highly recommend The Carvery in Torremelinos.

Will def be back!

Room Tip: Upgrade to sea room for sure - def worth it!
