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)
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
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 Room was very basic
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...
Internet services very bad
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.
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.
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.
I liked the hotel staff who were very friendly and the hotel was very clean and very well positioned in the resort lovely pools
Usual standards as we had been to this hotel previously.
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
Air conditioning had 3 speed controls but no thermostat so the room was constantly roasting, made it hard to sleep at night
Friendly atmosphere, good service. nothing
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
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.
Pool area very nice and clean Some staff not friendly
a pleasent place to stay. entertainment
Closeness to the Marina and beach This hotel is in urgent need of a refurb.
Very good value for money no tea coffee making in room
Nice and clean resonable priced and central to the bars resturants and shops near Belamedina Harbour No Gym
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.
service given by all staff
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.
nice staff goood location nice room
everthing was very goog the room we were allocated was overlooking a deserted building last time we had a sea view
good location with brilliant views of marina and sea.
It was nice n quite
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!!
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
location hallways had very little lighting at night
That it was next to the beach The room was scruffy/worn out/in need of total refit of furniture and decoration.
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
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.
Good location. Very close to the beach, shops and restuarants. I went as part of a couple and the hotel is very family orientated.
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
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
Plenty sunbeds nice pool breakfast good. It did not have fridge or tea making facility
Shower was weak, and the lifts was slow we was on the 7th floor
location and price it might be a 3 star hotel but we got 5 star treatment
Nothing was too much trouble. If we made a request and it could be accommodated - it was, at the earliest Food was rather repetitive
Good Location. Value for money. Staff spoke good english. Stayed on bed and breakfast basis. Also took evening meal in hotel -- buffet 3 course -- cost 10 euro but food at all times was only lukewarm. They did provide microwaves and seen a lot of people having to use them. Didn't opt for any more meals as a result. If meals aren't included in price then would have no problems recommending hotel
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel because of where it was situated right on the beach front & not far to shops & bars
everything except the food food
Great location right opposite the beach and near marina, Comfortable rooms, nice pool area with sun loungers. Very limited English TV. No hairdryer in bathroom, very limited entertinment.
hotel location, room nice and clean, very friendly and helpful staff. Nothing negative
Very relaxing and peaceful duing night and day. The variety of food could be better. It is certainly great value for money. Would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend this hotel. There was nothing I did not like about this hotel
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.
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.
the location was excellent with a nice pool area
Location The rooms were extremely basic
enjoyed stay good pool area. bathroom nice room poor, needs updating.
It was convenient to the beach and bars
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.
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.
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.
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 ...
we got a high floor sea view apartment which we asked for and were offered a double bed when we arrived room was very small and tv had no english speaking channels
It was a great location, central for beach. trains, bars, restaurants etc. Beds and towels were changed every 2nd day, stay very relaxed, we could stay in and eat if we wanted - microwave, electric hob, utensils etc all available - also had a little veranda which was nice. The weather was great for the time of year...would definitely stay there again.... Walls quite thin so quite noisy - especially in the mornings when cleaners were in, would have been nice to have view overlooking swimming pool.....
comfort and value for money
at a very good price, central and friendly staff a swimming pool and close to beach and shops excellent value for money
Services and facilities provided for family holidays. Provide security for cars parked outside the hotel area. Our rented car (which is a brand new one!) was vandalized. Some drunk people must have climbed and walk over the car (footprints visible) then slide down and broke the rear wiper of the car.
very pleasant short break:-)
Central location, clean, friendly staff and not expensive. No lift to room, toilet facility badly placed (had to sit sideways)
We found the hotel central for our needs and places we like to visit as we have stayed in this area before and found the staff very helpfull and pleasant.
great value great location
The studio apartment was the smallest I have ever stayed. Staff were okay but not always helpful.
