Friendly Staff, Lovely Clean Hotel. Excellent location, Child friendly. Cant find anything that i didnt like!!!
on behalf of all of us who stayed, I can honestly say that the staff, facilities & cleanliness were second to none, & I would have no hesitation staying there again or recomending Sahara Sunset Club to friends or family.
Convenient for see front, nice sunbathing area round pool, comfortable sun beds. our apartment was a bit of a strange shape and had to out of the complex to get in & out of it although it actualy looked over the pool. Could do with a bit of updating but I understand there is some refurbishment already going on
The room was very nice and spotless. Good facilities for children, a nice pool area and a good restaurant. Friendly staff. All in all a very nice hotel. Reception could have done better in allocating a room for us. We ended up having to carry the buggy up and down five sets of steps from and to the room...
excellent value,,plenty to do
staff polite and very helpful,rooms great value for money
Great clean rooms, friendly staff, good facilities to cook food, nice surroundings, good for families, quiet, clean nice, good pool areas (for children also).
Very nice place to stay, great for relaxation, parties and trips. Services provided by this hotel are excellent.
just about everthing meet and greet staff very nice rooms spacious and tidy lovely pool and close to the beach
relaxed swam ate good food , had nice evening strolls along the beach and nights out at the harbour, excellent looking forward to going back.
The staff were very friendly, polite and helpfull
Its an excellent location with friendly staff who were also very helpful.
location to beach,clean rooms,people did not reserve sunbeds so although not many sun beds you could usually get one.Excellent breakfast Some of the reception staff were surly/rude.Small pool, I was expecting activities for kids there were none.I thought it overpriced given lack of facilities.
Convenience for airport and visiting my parents
going home there was no spar or indoor pool
very clean, perfect location
great breakfast, nice garden and swimming pool weak sound isolation between rooms
Room was spotless. Location was great-- right across the bridge. Were able to park on the street. Breakfast, included in the rate, was very good. Lots of restaurants nearby,
Location Lack of Ice Machine and Room Service. Front Desk staff uninformed about excursions and events in local area.
The location of the hotel was very good. Safety deposit box in the room The breakfast area needs to be redesigned. The hotel is not four star i would say 2/3 star no free internet acess. i did leave comment at the reception area.
friendly, clean, good position close to beach, excellent value for money
Basic accommodations close to the beach. The room was nothing special, but the bed was clean and comfortable, and the shower was great. Good value for the location. Hotel staff was very friendly.
Great location, try to find parking in the streets leading to the hotel and then walk, as the hotel is situated on a pedestrian street. Owner is super friendly and helpful. Our room was a bit dark and moody, but a little balcony was a bonus. The restaurant is nicely decorated, full of atmosphere and good music, we only had breakfast there but it looks a good restaurant and was very busy for dinner.
Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere thanks to the fantastic staff that makes it possible. The location of the hostel is perfect; whether you want to go to the beach or into town, everything is always nearby. Another strong point for the hostel is the restaurant: the food served there is honestly the best you will get in Torremolinos and being there for a week we had a chance to check out many places. None was as good!
Friendly Staff. Basic. Clean. No facilities (soap, gel etc)
fantastic staff... thank you boys.. we will see you soon x
Friendly staff; close to activities including shopping, beach and dining. Noisy and parking difficult, but to be expected for area.
Everything! Maybe Hostal Guadalupe should have internet but nothing more!
This is a lovely little place, situated directly to the beach and on the main shopping street in Torremolinos. The locations is the best you can get and along the bech there is a walking path that connects Torremolinos with Benalmadena in a walking distance of approximatley 40 minutes. The Staff is verry wellcoming and helpful and friendly. We arrived 01,30 in the night because of flightdelay and was welcomed with a smile. Thank you Pedro! The Hostal also have a small and cosy restaurant with excellent food both for dinner and lunch. Please try the Paella, it is perfect, and made from fresh ingredienses. Verry reasonable prices both for lunch and dinner. The hole hotel is nice and clean. When I come back next time I will stay here again
Little room, but very clean. Friendly staff. Near the beach. Amazing English-Spanish pub (Bar del Ana) closed to the hotel open till 2 a.m.
Superb location just on the perimeter of the main resort, with lovely walks into resort. The staff were very helpful with information prior to our stay. An excellent spacious room with superb un -interrupted sea and coastal views. The exterior area around the pool could be more manicured.
We found the Best Benalmadena comfortable and convenient for the purpose of our visit which was part business and part holiday. During our short stay the weather was, for the time of year, very hot and we found the airconditioning in parts of the Hotel was totally ineffective, in particular the lifts and specifically our bedroom. We had the airconditioning control on its highest setting but it made little difference to the temperature in the room. There did not appear to be any airconditioning in the lifts.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff No
Pleasant staff, good quality food, value for money, very clean, good location. No adult entertainment. Lack of coffee making facilities in room. Poor Television channel choice. More coffee machines needed in resturant.
Nice hotel, food good,courtious staff,good access to beach,Ideal for a week or in my case just a couple of days,as good as you will get for the money,thats if you get a deal through Boookings.COM.
The room size was very adequate and general appearance of the hotel was good As english speaking quests we found it very difficult to get served at any of the hotel bars, I communicated this issue to staff at the main hotel desk. In my opionion the hotel staff and administration were totally focused on spanish guests.There were other issues found during our stay that we found below power. In conclusion I found the hotel staff very dismissive.
This hotel offer a good location to enjoy the beach and tranquility. Staff is really good, quality of room also (clean and spacious), large offer of good food :). Location is located to 50m. from beach. Not so much tourist, so for us it was fine and best hotel of this 3 weeks holidays (Spain + Portugal) Everything was good
Good location and exellent service
nice location, rather at the end part of Benalmadena but we appreciated the quite, nice pool and garden and good food served at restaurant. good rate value Aldough pool is small for high season when we booked it was not too crowded, people stated it was not worth the 4 stars, many noisy children in restaurant, but we are easy travellers and it did not disturb us, the beds could have been of more comfort
the quality of the food at both breakfast and dinner was excellent, worth considerind an all inclusive package. the staff on reception and in the bar area werent particularly friendly but we found this to be true in other places in the area as well
Friendly staff. Very convenient location for Malaga airport. The heating/water system was making a terrible noise all through the night. Distance to centre and beach.
close to the airport by car... For one night alright, otherwise, it has seen much better days. ...
walking the dog to the beach
A beautiful little authentic rustic hostel in a lovely garden with an old tree umbrella-ing the whole complex so you can sit in the shade with a glass of vino. Never stayed anywhere before with such lovely, helpful, respectful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Reception/bar manned 24/7, drinks, crisps available all the time, they do not do food here. The rooms are Ikea furniture, clean and functional bedroom/bathroom, small amount of storage. Air conditioning very effective, bit noisy (take ear plugs if its very hot and you want it on all night). I left washing drying in room, the staff took it put it on line and returned all folded, nice surprise. Beds and towels changed daily, shampoo/shower gel provided. Fab peaceful place! If this place was nearer the beach it would be an absolute gem, but unfortunately its on a hill about 20 mins walk to the beach, would be a bit of a jaunt for families or the elderly or unfit, but a taxi from beach not much. Supermarkets Aldi Lidl 10 mins walk (not 150m like someone said), but prices same or cheaper than home. If you want a cheap place to stay, with lovely people, dont mind a hike or the odd taxi then this place is brill. Check out the breakfasts at the cosy nook and nigel and cheryls; you can get shirley valentines chips and egg! Torremelinos exceeded our expectations but at the end near beladamena dogs been on the grass by the beach. Cigarette ends on the beach, shame on the smokers. Would stay at Geranios again.
typical spanish property, would have liked time to have stayed longer.great outdoor courtyard.
Very kind service, 24h reception, close to the Malaga airport
Friendly staff. Very pricy for the small room and quite poor location.
cheap and cheerful, ok to put your head down after a night out! very basic, tv broken, shower broken, noisy
easy going, nice welcome, uncomplicated renovation rests in the suroundings
We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this hotel. We would stay here again if getting an early flight from Malaga.
The rooms were clean and comfortable, the balcony and view were great, and the food was very good. We had the breakfast option. None
I enjoyed the beachfront view from our room. The room was clean and had what you would expect from a European hotel room. I'm not a breakfast eater, but enjoy a cup or two of coffee in the morning, was disappointed that there was no coffee machine in our room. When I went to the snack bar, I was unable to get a coffee to take away, I would have to sit there and drink it.
The proximity of the hotel to the beach was perfect, just a quick, short walk and there your were. The room and the view from the room was excellent. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful, even helping me with my Spanish when I did not know the correct word to use. The cafeteria and restaurant staff were extremely friendly and took time to ask us if we were enjoying ourselves in Torremolinos and offering any assistance. It was a great stay. Absolutely nothing!
Poor attitute of the people at the reception desk. Their lack of adhearance of meeting there advertised commitments.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. My hotel room was very comfortable and clean with a lovely sea view. I would definately stay in this hotel again.
Good quality hotel across the road from the beach
location,breakfast,facilities,staff. Parking spaces very few
Suprisingly nice and helpful staff in view of beeing a large hotel with a lot of guests and traffic in the reception. Nice clean rooms. The beach is a cross the street :-) Fast elevators (we stayed at the 8th floor) Nice sea-view. Wery busy in the restaurant at breakfast during "rush-hour" but efficient.Nice selection and good food. Order your eggs by the chef, as you like them :-)
The View from my balcony The room next door seemed to be used for airline staff and was very noisy early in the mornings
The hotel is nice. The view from the room on the sea is beautiful and you just have to cross the small road to get to the beach. And it is quite near to the center and train station. And the breakfast was good as well.
Friendly staff, close to beach, easy to find Breakfest did not last until the time it was presented on timetable, I hate it
Breakfast was really nice, as well as the direct access to the sea
brilliant stuff, perfect location & good quality-price ratio noisy
Excellent location: near the beach and not so far from down town. The staff is helpful and cooperative. Good value for money The dining room is too small to serve all guests. I had to wait available table in mornings sometimes. There is poor noise insulation in rooms in the main building.
location, outdoor swimming pool. Annex room had no windows or balcony - only small skylights. Breakfast was very poor. Dining room tables were very dirty.
Quite nice and peaceful place. Good location.
Very friendly and professional staff, nice courtyard and pool, location (close to the beach), cleanliness of room Triple room is too small and so are the beds, breakfast is quite poor
The pool was nice. The location was near to the beach. The aircondition was only on/ off (no control). The bed was not so good.
location is excellent - right next to the beach
I was particularly pleased with my room.It was clean, comfortable & spacious.I also found the reception staff & maid very kind & helpful I think that that dining room could be a bit bigger as most mornings it would struggle to cope with the guests so sometimes they would have to wait for a table to become vacant.
Because of the location in the centre. There was no internet possibillity, which is very usefull.
excellent location to center of torremolinos, modern hotel for the area, clean, good price The breakfast buffet was horrible, not worth eating. Better off buying breakfast elsewhere. WiFi in lobby not connected to to intenet and spoke to reception and they had no clue!
Excellent location. Friendly, helpful staff. Free wifi in lobby was so slow I was not even tempted to pay to use it in my room. After long layovers better arriving, all I wanted was to soak in a hot bath. Hotel has showers in rooms. Food varies from excellent to British.
The location was very good... close to metro train station and shopping area. Staff was helpful. Buffet style dining was good. The bed, while very much appreciated king size, the mattress could have been a little thicker and softer and the pillows a little more fluffier.
The hotel is making good progress with modernisations and it's easy to see how much better the place is looking. The rooms are good and the air conditioning make them even more comfortable. The main pool is great if a little busy, and the view from the rooftop pool is impressive. Overall, the Cervantes offers good value for money, but don't expect too many 4-star frills. The lifts are painfully slow and there are not enough beds by the pool (I was annoyed so many beds lay unused but covered with someone's towel all day). Don't come for the food. It's not great and the queues are huge. There are lots of good restaurants nearby (to suit all tastes and budgets).
some of the staff were pleasant but not all. not enough variety in the evening meal. hotel needs modernisation.
The location was the main reason for me.
it was at the centre of the city which was good, nice n clean. food was good the only thing that ruined our holiday was when we where told it had sat tv, but they didnt tell us that all 35 channels where in spanish and german and not one english channel to be watched esp in winter at nite time. The fact that some german ppl where aloud to sit in the sauna completely naked really made me feel uncomfortable,
comfortable rooms and helpful staff we stayed half board and were disapointed at the lack of fresh fruit available at breakfast
The location of the hotel is best. Too noisy both from the street and in the hotel. Walls are too thin. Breakfast is nothing to brag about. We expect a better standard of a grand hotel.
Matress are horrible
Very good and nice hotel situated in the center of Torremolinos. Inside the hotel it reamins quiet and gentle, without any noice or rumours of the outside world. The crowdy town is left behind when you pass the hotel doors
Easily accessible, 'no nonsense', welcoming, clean, good food and....easiest parking of 4 hotels used on tour! Location not the prettiest as on edge of industrial estate but ideal for airport at Malaga mitigated that.
Very helpful staff. Pity that breakfast only available at 8:30 - and that the water in the shower wasn't hot.
On the plus side it was in a nice quiet area, and near enough to the airport On the downside, it did not have a bus service near by and there were quite alot of ants in our room. Not good with a baby who likes to crawl...
The Hotel staff were superb very obliging.
please have the "exact address" because there are 2 streets with same name so it has been quite longer to find it. and the front desk sent us to a restaurant that was closed that night. but overall good quiet location.
The hotel was beautiful and clean---a welcomed sight after a long day of travel. I regretted that my flight schedule necessitated my enjoying only about four hours there (which were spent sleeping).
We needed a hotel relatively close to the airport and for this purpose it was good. The location is in a business/industy area without charm and vegetation but the hotel was very nice and the staff very helpful. We got breakfast early in the morning. Thanks!! The hotel was difficult to find and yellow hotel signs (as normally found i Spain) along the route would have helped.
It was a good hotel, nice staff the location is bad, no metro no bus!! So you have to get a cab and that is expensive
All the staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were well laid out No
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little depressing lol and the restaurant is really awful - don't eat there!
The staff were very friendly,the food and restaurant were also good,great breakfast, beds,close proximity to the airportl location is in basically an industrial area so very little to do outside hotel,the apparent lack of poper sound installation between rooms and I had very noisy neighbours and unable to regulate air conditioner
nice staff, cheap price, free wifi in the lobby but not the room. this was not as nice I hoped. in fact quite poor. we were in a separate building not the main hotel. no soap. no shampoo. very bad bed, uncomfortable and saggy. I thought it was going to be 4 star, but it was more like something out of the 70s.
Being so ajacent to the sea front. The room was pleasant and very clean.The breakfast was very good The prices of drinks was a little high at the bar. It would have been better if there had been some information in the room to tell us what faciltities were available in the hotel and area.Apart from that very good
great location, directly on the beach not 4 star..the studio is max 2 star
convenience to the boardwalk
It was a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were pleasant 1) No enough umbrellas round the pool, 2) The noise in the morning when cleaning staff were dragging beds to organise cleaning was disturbing
There was nothin we likes We booked 2 studio apartments in this 4 start hotel - but the apartments were only 2 "key" apartments. They were very very dirty, the shower was blocked, the beds were old and unstable, there was no toiletries etc. Avoid this at all costs! We paid 112euros per night - premium price for a teriible studio apartment
Clean, quiet and cheap. I would recomend this hotel.
Excellent security. No louts. On first day notified reception that patio door lock was inoperative.This was not attended to.
Location. Privacy in the studio where I stayed. Not noisy. Absence of elevator. No soup and shampoo at all. Sheets and towels are changed only in 3 days. No phone in the studio.
great hotel no complaints at all
Perfect situated so close to the beach, restaurants and shops but still quite and private. Very friendly staff and all the facilities you need. . Parking is a bit expensive
good room-size / really nice location 5mins from the wonderful beach / 20mins walking to the trainstation / good breakfast / rooms in the top 2 floors / really low price rooms at lower levels (we stayed at the top floor) / stuff was too cold and sometimes to less / poor pool-area
sevices and food no refrigerater in the room
The Half board Buffet was varied and excellent
good location, clean rooms, friendly staff
the accommodation is very well, very nice personel and good food no apply
Nice food, good service, Location close to the beach, but far enough away from the noice. plenty shopping posibilities near by.
There was a good selection for breakfast. Very near shops, restaurants, and the beach. It was a little loud at night.
Space in room Food, lack of luxury, oldness
Location of the hotel was excellent, the facilities were also excellent. The room was spacious and comfortable. All in all this was good value. No
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...
Buffet dinner very good no tea or coffe making facilitys in room and paying to get fridge turned on
It was clean.The food was good.The staff were pleasant.It was only a 10 min taxi drive from the airport. Not rearly
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.
location Room was very basic
Internet services very bad
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)
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.
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 location of hotel was great ,but being close to the road the traffic noise was bad The fact that they insisted on turning the lights up very high in the dining room and the lounge.It did not make the place relaxing when you went for a meal at night ,or for a drink after it. We stoped eating in the hotel because of this.
Staff were really very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely corner room with large balcony and unobstructed views over the sea. Really liked the wide range of buffet choices at breakfast and dinner Bathroom decor was a little tired
Upon arrival the reception staff were extremely helpful. Our room was large and comfortable and we had booked for a sea view but were impressed to find that we had nothing in our way to see this. The room was really quiet and the standard of cleanliness and the food were great. Only bad point was we had a mini bar but no bottle opener! Also the key card didn't work on a couple of occasions which meant having to go back to reception. Other that no dramas.
Everything was great... I dont meet younger then 60 habitant in this hotel. This sucks my energy...
the food and entertainment
Excellent, loved it
Friendly staff Nothing really, the rooms are a bit small for the price
Situation, Terrace and pool area, No steps to Sea front Beds very uncomfortable with creaking springs.
nice terraces with several private grassy bits with just a few sun beds in each. Great terrace for sea views and people watching - shielded from road noise which made balcony use unacceptable proximity to a very busy road - would have made it impossible to sit out on balcony
The Beach Location & south west facing room to catch the evening sun. I did not like the flies around the pool area, & also a fridge in the room would be good instead of a locked mini bar.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room urgently needed decorating.
That it was on the beach Decadent!!!! Bed was uncomfortable and made lot of noise..... the staff were always in a hurry and just wanted to get rid of you, the people working at the breakfast were the same and had the ability at exactly 10:30 to start cleaning up breakfast and have everything cleared in 5 minutes, the food was horrible drivel (ie british food, beans on toast!) and the other "restaurants" around this hotel were just as bad and charged a shit load of money for the same level of food and terrible service. I cannot say more b/c I stayed there only as long as I needed to and left right after breakfast to better cities with better amenities. Well, in any case, I am not your customer.....you customer comes from the uk, cares less about food and culture.
The Hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Food was varied and very good and the Hotel was situated on the beach in a very good location.
The flexibility and excellent behaviour and service from all the staff. The selection and presentation of the food. The good atmosphere. Very good entertainment. It would have been nice if there had been more information about Torremolinos and the surroundings.
The staff are always welcoming and pleasant when we stay there its like home from home
An easy place to stay ...... what I needed for a short break My first evening was in Room 101. Apart from being in dire need of decoration, the noise from the lobby area at the top of the stairs and from the lift shaft meant that I had little sleep on the first night. Although your staff were very courteous and moved me to a better room the next day, I do feel that I had been "stuffed" with 101 ...... there is no way that it is of the same standard as other rooms.
The nice reception when we arrived. The Bedroom we got with the seaview. The breakfast and then the accessability to the beach. No my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed staying athe the Medplaya and hopefully I will stay there again soon.
Free breakfast was good.
Spacious hotel with large rooms in a great location Did not have a gym
Close to main road; easy to reach from airport Malaga Facilities; opening hours of facilities; pool close to early: some restaurants not even open; entertainment program only for group tours of old people
Close to Malaga airport, low price, good quality
The breakfast was excellent. Overall it was a very pleasant place to visit.
Efficient service n/a
The building was very old and dilapidated, there were leaks everywhere and our room had puddles of water in the floor. The kitchen was poorly equipped and the food in the restaurant was less than adequate.
the room was old, the staff was anoying and the hotel was very far from the beach or the city center
the bar staff were very friendly. It is not my kind of hotel, would only use if stopping over for a flight. Also the reception staff were not so helpful.
There were some problems: - no hot water in the shower in the morning./- there were no signs to indicate for example the reception, we got lost on our arrival inside the hotel./ -the kitchen was poor, a lot of things missing, and some machines don't function. /- the room wasn't as comfortable and clean as a 4 star hotel should be...
Good sized room with sitting room and bathroom off main bedroom. No noise from other residents. Breakfast was like a cattle market and a free for all, queues for the coffee machines and very greasy bacon. Right alongside the main dual carriageway into Torremolinos so a lot of traffic noise. Long walk into town centre but courtesy bus service to beach.
very cheap and the breakfast was good no hot water, after calling the staff 3 times, they offered another room in another building, where there was hot water
Excellent location. Free parking. Good facilities, pools, etc. Breakfast was terrible. Coffee was undrinkable, Orange Juice was "Kool Aid", and it was a "zoo". Took 20 minutes to check out and there was no one in line!
very relaxing.hotel in good position to beach and town.restaurant facilities at don pablo excellent. i wouldnt have liked a room at the front of the hotel.
i would have liked a matrress protector on the bed.
i have stayed many times but never in winter our hotel room was like a fridge and when i complained was told iheating working ok we had no hot water but as we only stayed omne day we were glad to get out
