The Torremolinos hotel, Sol Aloha Puerto is located alongside the sea with direct access to the popular Carihuela Beach and only 300 m from Puerto Marina (the original marina and one of the most popular leisure attractions on the whole of the Costa del Sol). The hotel is located in an area which is also famous for its large number of "chiringuitos" (typical beach-side restaurants) specialising in "pescaíto frito" fried fish.The hotel is 2.5 Km. from the centre of Torremolinos, 4 Km. from the golf course, 8 Km. from the airport, 15 Km. from Malaga and 35 Km. from Marbella. The large size of the rooms at the Sol Aloha Puerto make it a perfect hotel for enjoying with the whole family.
Location = perfect! Nightlife = incredible! Food = excellent!
Pool was very dirty, no maintenance had been done for quite a while. the interior of the hotel was a bit dated a bit of refurbishment needs to be done to make it a real 4 star hotel and the fridge in room would only be connected if you bought 10 items from the list(more than 20 euros in drinks)
Buffet dinner very good
no tea or coffe making facilitys in room and paying to get fridge turned on
Location of the hotel was excellent, the facilities were also excellent. The room was spacious and comfortable. All in all this was good value.
Location and much for the money
The personal was not exactly intrested in helping out and they were not there when we needed them. A big minus was the system of the minibar where you had to buy 10 Items just to have them turning it on...
Short distance to the beach. Nice staff. Free use of tower (depositum 10 euro) for the beach/pool. Change of tower coast 1 euro. Short distance to Bealmáda (marina). Bus to Torremolnos near the hotel.
You must pay 2 euro x 10 (water/beer) to use the freezer.
It was clean.The food was good.The staff were pleasant.It was only a 10 min taxi drive from the airport.
Room was very basic
The location was close to plenty of restaurants and right on the beach.
The refrigerator costs extra to have it turned on. It was difficult to find lounge chairs by the pool and the ones by the beach cost different prices depending one who approached you.
The food was reasonable although the furnishings (sofa) were well past their sell by date and unusable although the bed was however comfortable. The flushing of our and other toilets was extremely loud but there was no filling of the tank sound that helped. Shame about the re-construction of the swimming pool that we were not aware of until we got to the hotel
We were not able to sit on the sofa in the room because of extreme overuse and in need of replacement. The food was all right but it would have been nice to have had a hot meal. The food was spread too far apart and by the time you went all around the hall getting your meal and getting to your seat the meal was cold.
