Usual standards as we had been to this hotel previously.
Pool area very nice and clean Some staff not friendly
Friendly atmosphere, good service. nothing
The food and service in the restaurant was excellent and well presented. Location of hotel to beach and other amenities very good. Rooms a bit tired and in need of uplift
I liked the hotel staff who were very friendly and the hotel was very clean and very well positioned in the resort lovely pools
I love the location the lovely gardens & the staff.It is a lovely spot to relax & the food on offer is excellent. There is an amazing variety catering for all tastes. The buffet is constantly replemished so last into the dining room gets the same choice as the first to arrive for meals.I visited with my brother & his wife and we keep retirning. As a widow I was sorry to find on my receint visit that there is no single rooms. I have to pay a lot more for this holiday.
Air conditioning had 3 speed controls but no thermostat so the room was constantly roasting, made it hard to sleep at night
Spacious bedrooms, spacious lobby area, lovely outdoor pool area, excellent location for beach/marina, across the road from bus stop
Quality of food Personel in restaurant
a pleasent place to stay. entertainment
location Room was very basic
Buffet dinner very good no tea or coffe making facilitys in room and paying to get fridge turned 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. Not rearly
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
Internet services very bad
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.
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)
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 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...
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.
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
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.
Excellent, loved it
Friendly staff Nothing really, the rooms are a bit small for the price
the food and entertainment
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
Everything was great... I dont meet younger then 60 habitant in this hotel. This sucks my energy...
service given by all staff
Nice and clean resonable priced and central to the bars resturants and shops near Belamedina Harbour No Gym
Very good value for money no tea coffee making in room
nice staff goood location nice room
There was no entertainment and the pool bar was only opened occasionally. There was also a lot of dust on the top of the wardrobe. Badly in need of updating.
everthing was very goog the room we were allocated was overlooking a deserted building last time we had a sea view
Great location, cool rooms - public and bed, slightly faded decor. Sheets had small holes in. Maid kept removing half used soap bars and replacing with new. Some noise from street at weekend and at night from hotel corridoor.
Closeness to the Marina and beach This hotel is in urgent need of a refurb.
It was nice n quite
good location with brilliant views of marina and sea.
I enjoy staying at the Timor Sol. My first time to stay there was 1998 and I bave been back 15 times since. The location is fantastic. You are right beside the beach, bars, shops and restaurants. Only problem with Timor Sol is no air conditioning in the months of July and August.
We have been going back to timor sol now 3 x a year for the last 5 years or so, good hotel,great location,next to beach ,surrounding area getting quieter every time we go, but can walk 30 mins or less into tormellinos or arryhio or benelmadena,harbour area lovely,and only 5mins walk hotel itself could do with being updated but good value for money rooms pretty basic but are cleaned every day . and have never had any problems. staff all friendly we only ever go self catering as like to eat out at different resturants every night The only fault we have with timor sol aparts is in the summer months really could do with air conditioning in apartments can hire fans but arent enough sockets to run them to keep u cool enough to sleep so wouldnt advise these apartments in the summer months when tempratures hit 40 to 50c
close to all amenities the room was too small it did not have any air conditioning, the room was not cleaned in the three nights and four days we stay there. when we asked for more towels as only two bath towels were provided we were given out to at reception and told how we should know the rules
close to beach, bars & restaurants & main shopping area in the own easy access by bus or taxi less than 10 min journey, entertainment in hotel & playground for kids apartments were great didnt like that there was a karoki bar nearby that went on until 2 in the morning!!
That it was next to the beach The room was scruffy/worn out/in need of total refit of furniture and decoration.
Good location. Very close to the beach, shops and restuarants. I went as part of a couple and the hotel is very family orientated.
location hallways had very little lighting at night
very central no need for taxis excellent location nxt to beach interior of hotel a bit out of date,poor lighting between lifts and apartment
Me and My boyfriend stayed at Sol Timor for 3 nights, 4 days Mid August. We were a bit aprehensive because of other bad reviews but as far as we where concerned they are all untrue, The staff were very friendly and the room was very clean. It had single beds but they were easy to push together. We took a fan with us because it was rather hot but you are able to hire one there. The pool was very good, yes you had to pay 2.50 euros each for a sunbed but this is very cheap compared to 4.50 on the beach and there was plenty of room to just put out towels to lie on. The pool toilets and showers were always very clean. The supermarket was very good and was good for everyday essentials. 5 Great for kids with flinstone club! Deffinatly recomended!! There was nothing we didn't like, Completely recomended, 5 mins walk to benalmadena and 30 to torremolinos, Will be back next year
good variety of food - breakfast and dinner firstly we have a room with the view to construction side - it was impossible even open a curtains and look out the balcony...after we asked - in 3 days they gave us another room - with garden view. Anyway - the negatives: pour lightening in the room, no fridge, only 1 plug in the room- so if you wach TV - you can not to charge your mobile ...
Food and restaurant service, both excellent. Incorrect room allocation - other guest in room! Consequently given a room with a poor view on a noisy street.
Location The rooms were extremely basic
Good price for a hotel At night, you can hear even on the 5th floor the noice from the people partying on the street. At the reception desk, the weren't friendly at all.
Location of the hotel; very near to restaurants and bars of the Puerto Deportivo of Benalmadena and to the beach also A lot of English youngsters who are quite noisy during the night. Not the best hotel for a quite night. Rooms at the streetside do also have disturbances of noise during the night.
only one of our party had a complaint, and that wa that his room was right next to a building site so he wakened every morning bang on 8am.
the location was excellent with a nice pool area
It was close to the marina of Benalmadena Costa. The marina has some nice restaurants and shops. The bathrooms had a smell like they were last used in 1970. We thought it would go away after a few days but it didn'T. And they made us pay the entire stay of a week upfront. Of all the staff only the cleaning ladies and only 1 bar tender was friendly. The rest looked like they worked under gunpoint. never again. Most reviews here were too friendly for this hotel.
enjoyed stay good pool area. bathroom nice room poor, needs updating.
It was convenient to the beach and bars
