We travelled as a family party of seven and stayed for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is brilliant and the weather (end of August) was superb. We were on a B&B rate due to visiting friends in the area but the hotel does All Inclusive as well. Being honest the restaurants and bars on the promenade are that...

Just returned from our week away and can thoroughly recommend this hotel if you are looking for clean modern accommodation, good food and safe for children with a mini club. Having checked the previous reviews I asked for rooms on the 5th floors, we had pool view rooms looking out and down to the sea which were perfect. Good clean...

Very nice holiday with the family in Andalucia. Excellent food, nice rooms, very friendly staff ! Torrox is a fine place to stay to visit the Malaga, Granada, Almunecar region. Please put some more sun beds around the pool area and the restaurant is still a little to noisy when it's full of people.

Transport: The hotel is at 45 minutes car drive from the airport. If you do not have bus transport, it is advisable to hire a car. Location: The hotel is on Torrox beach. The beaches are public- so there is no own beach although nothing else but own fence of the hotel is between the sea and hotel. From near...

Go there in Spring time. Wow what a wonderful place. You can choose between the fantastic pool or go just a few meters to the ocean. Walking path along the beach. You have your room card with you to get access to the Hotel since the gate is closed. That feels good and safe. Dinners is like a boufée, which...

We have just driven in from Negs on a gloriously sunny January day. Parking in the port is easy and there is a beautiful port side walk to the city centre (10 minutes). If you like shopping this is the place for you but if you prefer museums and art galleries you won't be disappointed. There are so many eateries...

Fantastic hotel, can't fault it except to say the carpets and rooms all look a little bit tired but they're closing for Winter to refurbish so it didn't spoil our holiday.

Stayed for two nights on way back from a short break to Gibraltar. The hotel was a really nice surprise after poor accommodation in La Linea. Food was really good for a buffet restaurant which was very well organised and managed. Nice room spotlessly clean. The gardens and pool areas are stunning. We will visit again.

In addition, there's a surprise for those with a sweet tooth: the wonderful desserts buffet. It’s impossible to resist the temptation of something sweet! Totally refreshing. The huge pool at this hotel in Malaga Playa will entice the whole family in for a dip. The kids can pretend to be sharks while the grownups take advantage to swim a few lengths. There's also a pool with never-ending slides so that your kids can make a splash, and another indoor pool with views of the outdoors, and a special baby pool. Non-stop activities. In the evening, the little ones can't wait for Starky and Stella to arrive at the minidisco. During the day, your kids will never get bored at the Miniclub. They will play in the pool, dress up or do handcrafts. And for you? Magic shows, dance performances, live music, and much more. Enviable temperatures. The best climate in Europe is here!
