We booked the apartments as part of a last minute holiday. We were greeted at reception by a very friendly & helpful staff member.

We had our temperature taken and informed of the measures in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

When we arrived in our room we were soon realised that the whole room had been refurbished apart from the kitchenette. The decor was modern and the bathroom had everything we needed. Sadly the kitchenette was really in need of replacing. The fridge door wouldn’t close fully due to it being so old and led to it leaking on the floor, the counter top was also broken.

The A/C was also a problem, after putting it on full blast and finding the small temperature button by the door the room temperature went down by around 2 degrees. We kept it on for the duration of our stay but it still made the room no cooler.

We could not fault the facilities in the room and complex. The pool was clean and a one way system throughout, the sun beds were spaced two metres apart and sectioned off with rope which was great!

There was also entertainment on Thurs,Fri and Saturday evening which was really good!

Apart from our issues with the kitchen and A/C we could not fault the hotel at all, it was in the perfect position and had the most friendliest staff. We’re not sure if we would return unless we were certain the kitchen and A/C problems were sorted.

ALL COVID MEASURES WERE FOLLOWED BY THE HOTEL AND ITS STAFF DURING OUR STAY WHICH IS VERY EASING TO SEE.

We stayed as lockdown was lifting so the hotel was nowhere near full despite it being school summer holidays. We were lucky in this respect as we could see that, at full occupancy, it would be very crowded. We arrived much earlier than the check in time but it was no problem. We had a choice of sunbeds - they are set in a lovely garden on grass with palm trees so really pleasant. The pool is beautiful and, luckily for us, sparsely populated. The staff are amazing - really friendly, polite and professional. The rooms are nice but kitchens not well equipped - cutlery is just two knives, two forks, two spoons and two teaspoons - not even a bottle opener so bring one with you if you have hold luggage. No washing up cloths, detergent or teatowels so you need to buy or improvise. There is a kettle, toaster, hob and microwave grill. Very handy Lidl supermarket just a few minutes walk away and the walk down from the train station is easy (walk back up in the heat of the sun with a mask on a different matter). We paid extra for the sea view which was fantastic but I am not convinced there are any apartments here without a sea view. Just soap and shower gel is provided in the apartments but there was plenty of hand sanitiser around the buildings. The hotel is very well sited for the beach and lots of restaurants and shops.

Room tip: higher floors have best views.

Stayed at Sol Timor this March for the 2nd time in a self catering room with a sea view. Room recently refurbished and modernised. Bed incredibly comfortable and bathroom was beautiful. Sadly, the Covid-19 outbreak happened and we were placed on lockdown. The hotel staff were brilliant keeping us informed and calm, special thanks to Enrique working in the hotel shop who was brilliant to chat to and very funny. The hotel maids worked tirelessly to keep areas clean and provide fresh towels, linen and keep our room spotless. We will be back as soon as we can! Thank you for another wonderful stay.

We've just come back from 5 nights at this hotel and couldn't recommend it enough.
We chose this place on the strength of the photos, reviews and mainly the location. Having not been to the Costa del Sol for many years this was a chance choice.
Sol Timor is in the perfect location 5 minute walk from Puerto Marina, Benalmedana, and a beach front walk away from Torremolinos. Close to many shops, restaurants and bars.
Staff were friendly and my wife was given some sweets and a bottle of sparkling wine for her birthday celebration whilst there, which was greatly appreciated for the extra effort.
Yes some rooms or part of the hotel is being renovated at present but didn't disturb any of our stay.
Fully enjoyed it here and would definitely go back.

Stayed in the Sol Timor for 5days must say the staff were very friendly and helpful. Went for my birthday and they delivered to my room a bottle of champagne sweets and water. It was very much appreciated. Booked again in July before I left. It is situated in a lovely place right beside the sea and lovely restaurants and pubs. Would just like to say thanks again for making my holiday memorable.
