I would just like to say that me and my husband stayed at this hotel for 10 nights. And it was the best holiday we have had abroad.
Our room was by the back end of the hotel which was over looking the pool and Pepes food bar. We were very happy with the room. Spacious and always clean, and a nice balcony view of the pool area.
The hotel was the cleanest that we have ever stayed at. The cleaners and staff work very hard to keep guests happy. Very polite and kind people.
The food there was always a good variety of choice which we enjoyed. And good drinks. Especially the strawberry daiquiri which was my favourite.
We also loved the area of Torremolinos. Right near the beach, and loads to go to in the area.
I will not understand how there are the odd bad reviews for this hotel, as we absolutely loved being there.
We will be booking soon to go back next year.
Thank you to all the staff at the hotel.

Amazing hotel been twice now and have rebooked again. The cleanliness is spot on and the staff cannot do enough for you.
Only shame is the sunbed reservers meaning if you want a sunbed you have set your alarm.
Would definitely recommend this hotel over and over again

What an amazing week we had at the RUI Costa Del Sol.

This was our first family holiday abroad with our 19 month old daughter, and the hotel couldn't be more accommadating.

The room was clean and spacious and we had a pool view which was nice in the evening when we had a drink on the balcony. The only downside was that we were above the bar which had a live musician most nights. This would be great for a couple, but not for a family trying to get their child to bed at night.

The Food is mainly buffet throughout the restaurants, however in the Italian you choose your main course at the table. The food was varied and delicious every day. So many choices and it was always hot and replenished regularly. There are plenty of bars dotted around the complex with a wide range of soft and alcoholic drinks. Lemon Fanta is always on tap which is a great shout on holiday, and all the alcohol were branded and good quality. Although not listed on the drinks menu, I'd recommend asking for a Mojito as they were spot on!

The entertainment throughout the day included volleyball, water football, darts and aerobics. The evening entertaining included live singers, dancers and the hotel entertainers whom danced and mimed to songs. I'd recommend to get a table early as it filled up quickly. Overall the entertainment was good, but not the best I have seen on holiday.

Staff at the hotel were always friendly and helpful, and we're particularly nice to our daughter which was nice. I couldn't fault anyone there.

I would definitely recommend this holiday to families and those with young children.

Thank you for having us RUI Costa Del Sol!

Hotel staff very good and helpful. You can easily see that the hotel have tried to save money in the current climate, which is fine but not when you are still charging top dollar for the holiday. I must have drank literally 20 large amaretto and coke one night and was sober as a judge. Because of this, people were constantly queuing for drinks all night. the cocktails weren’t really cocktails, they were those icy slush things.

All restaurants were buffet style, which I don’t mind. A lot of the meat was processed, and all of the vegetables were extremely over cooked and greasy. Seafood paella was on most nights, with about 5 king prawns in the whole thing, so the first person who got to it, had all of the prawns, then that was it. For some reason, hotels like this struggle with dessert. All cheap brought in puddings. A couple of home made local puddings is all that is needed and people would love it. The food that was available between restaurant opening times was again cheap deep fried rubbish. No ice creams available for the kids, not even to purchase.

Rooms were fine and clean, no issues there.

Pools areas were good but had the usual problems with people coming down at 6am to reserve sun beds.

Evening entertainment was hit and miss with some good nights and some not so good.
