There is more than meets the stereotype to this Anglo-centric seaside resort. While most of Torremolinos is a brash high-rise heaven for fun-loving Brits, the low-rise western part is patronised by the Spanish and has a very different character. Soft golden sands stretch either side of town and there is a huge choice of entertainments by day and night. Aquapark is a white-knuckle water world; Tivoli World is the region’s major theme park.see all hotels in Torremolinos
This hotel is nowhere close to being four stars. It is more like two stars. The rooms are very clean but are in desperate need of renovations. We were on the top floor with a beach view which was supposed to be the 'good' rooms so I can only imagine what others were enduring. The beds are like concrete blocks and the TV was tiny. You have to pay a deposit […] to use the room safe!!...and they give you this ancient key to use it! We did half board. The food was good but after a few days we noticed it lacked variety and became repetitive and dull. It was also not very cultural. They had paella but where was the flan, gazpacho, sangria, etc? We chose this location because of the tennis courts which are a total joke. We were basically playing on a basketball court and we had to pay EXTRA for this! This hotel really nickels and dimes you to death. You have to pay extra for everything and always had to go through the front desk reception...which means they were always overwhelmed. There was one front desk person (Bonilla) who was very nasty. All we wanted to do is return the tennis rackets and he completely snapped at us. We noticed him being very short with everyone he dealt with. We enjoyed Torremolinos for the beach and the gay friendly vibe. If you want to see cultural sites, jump on the train for an afternoon in Malaga. It is very quick, easy, and cheap. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sol Don Pablo"
Good hotel, very good breakfast buffet. Hall ways are loud because they are all tile so there can be a lot of room noise. Front desk staff was not overly friendly, but they were OK. Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"South of Spain, Torremolinos"
I stayed at this hotel several times in the same trip. It is right on the South of Spain Coast and has good beaches and is a good location to venture out from on other excursions. the hotel is a little too much noise from the hall ways as they are all in tile and I didn't find the front desk people all the friendly, although they were adequate. The […] hotel itself is great and has a really nice breakfast buffet (make sure you get the breakfast included when you book). I thought it was an outstanding value for the money and would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay in Costa del Sol"
The hotel is nice, Part of a 3 hotel complex. The beds were a little hard but still comfortable. The front desk staff were nice but very helpful when you asked questions. The rooms are older but very clean and the view from the room was good. The breakfast buffett was very good. I would stay here again, not sure I would call it 4 starts as they do but […] is a nice place in a good location, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Worst Food Ever"
If you book this hotel please book room only. It serves the worst food ever. Rooms are always clean thoughGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a fabulous hotel for anyone, it is great for families as there are activities for everyone. It is located right on the beach and also has loads of beautiful pools to use on sight. Everything you need is right at your feet and the staff are amazing. I'd definitely visit again.Genuine Expedia guest review
It is very like the family hotels we used to stay in in The Canaries when I was a kid. What makes this place extra special is three things: it's a sort of campus of three hotels which gives extra outside space compared to neighbouring hotels; also, as a result, it has five main pools to choose from; it's ten yards from the beach - say no more! Torremolinos […] has a reputation for being naff but there is a buzz about the place. Recommended this place to my brother, his wife and twelve-year-old son. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short stay, great experience!"
What We read from Internet and reports were true to life. Based on this it was exactly what we hoped for. The rooms were kept spotless. Huge variety of breakfast choice to suite all needs. Definitely a place we would go back to.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is great, had a brilliant holiday and it wasn't just British there. The evening entertainment was superb but you need to get there about 15mins before it starts otherwise you won't get a seat. There are a few nice restaurants along the sea front. I went with a friend but had I gone with children it would have been just as good. The only small […] thing is on one of the days the toilets at the pool were blocked and it smelt! Would def go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Food was fantastic. Location superb, just across the road from the beach. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Free wifi in the communal areas was a bonus. Wish we'd known we could hire pool towels to save luggage space. 10 Euros deposit to hire each towel. Hotel was within walking distance of the Square with all the entertainment and bars. Entertainment […] in the hotel was very good. Views from our room on floor 6 were brilliant. Took a wander through the sister hotels Don Pedro and Don Marco but they were not nearly as good as the Don Pablo. We has a late flight back so asked to keep our room on. It costs 25Euros as long as your room is not going to be used at early check in. Next time I would book that before going there or on arrival. Definitely go back there. Brilliant Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very positive experience."
Very good location, although there was still some renovation going on, it wasn't very noticeable. The thing we missed the most in this hotel was a bidet. Staff were very nice and helpfull. Close to the beach, towncentre and stores. Alltogether we had a good time in this hotel, food and service was good also. If we'll come back one day to this area, […] we will stay there.

"Great complex for a holiday"
The Sol Don Pablo is part of a group of three Don Hotels which allow you the use of the facilities of all three hotels so you can usually find room at a pool or sunbathing area.The staff were all extremely friendly and efficient although at certain times the bars seemed understaffed and you had to wait to be served.The staff at the Cordoba dining room […] were especially friendly and helpful.The Don Pablo is in the process of being renovated one floor at a time and I think the lower floors have been completed .We were on the 6th floor overlooking the bowling greens and the housekeeping was first class but you can see that the rooms are in need of a makeover our shower hose was leaking but was replaced within a couple of hours .I would definately recommend this hotel and the half board option is certainly worth considering.

"nice hotel near the beach"
good location. nice pools and lot of room pool sideGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location, food and layout. Undergoing building works- the frontage is a building site and my heart sank when I first saw this; happily the inside was much better. The bathroom in my room was lovely- clearly a recent upgrade. Just a shame the rest of the room hadn't been given the same attention as it still retained it's 70's decor. If this is […] true of other rooms too, then they are well overdue an upgrade. Hence my score of 3- clean, basic, but tired. Great food. One massive gripe I had though was that you had to pay for drinks at dinner or lunch, (drinks were available for breakfast, thankfully). You had to fork out for water even, and the bottle was over twice the price found in the shops directly outside. If you pay for food in a hotel, it is grossly unfair that tap water isn't included in this, especially in such a warm climate. Fair enough if you request juice or alcohol, but no free water? They may as well charge you to use the bathroom! I'm afraid to say the staff weren't massively helpful or friendly either. Apart from one very helpful man, the reception staff were completely disinterested and I felt I was putting them out by inquiring about trips on offer- they just wanted to move on to the next person and get the job done. The people who greeted you at the restaurant door were lovely, but one waiter #the head?) in particular was exceedingly rude and short with people. Great location, I still had a relaxing break, but I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for mature people :-)"
Old fashioned hotel with old fashioned values and manners. The building and rooms are dated, but the position of the hotel is fantastic and reception staff are brilliant! Definitely for over 40's who will appreciate the calming relaxed atmosphere.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel in a good location. Attracts families and couples. All facilities one may require included within the hotel complex. some improvement work being under taken at time of our visit but this caused no detriment to our stay, though it is likely the hotel will look even better for the summer season. only issue we had was with the noise through […] the walls, although it was for only short periods thus not causing too much of an issue, also the corridors are tiled, they look nice but the sound echo's and can cause disturbance at night time as other guests go to and from their rooms. A carpet maybe beneficial. positive experience, would visit again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Sol Don Pablo"
We stayed at Sol Don Pablo during mid November. We had mixed feelings about the facilities we had to use through the hotel. the wifi was quite poor despite paying for premium use inside our rooms. The gym could have used a few touch ups ie the treadmill could have actually worked and the weight machines needed replacement paddings. The buffet dinner […] was definitely not worth 22 euros and would highly recommend getting some local cheaper and better quality food locally. Spa lounge was very expensive so didn't bother going. The room itself seemed as if it needed a bit of updating. The decor was quite 70's style and out dated but they were well kept. I would pay special attention to the linen and one of ours had a cigarette hole in them. There is no personal regulation of aircon which we didn't like so we left the door open all night to ventilate the room. Staff were quite nice and knowledgable of the area. They did have a lot of extra excursions that the hotel could help arrange for you which was very nice. Our bathroom was very nice and newly renovated and they had quite comfortable beds and additional pillows and blankets on hand. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
""Get together @ Don Pablo"
The situation of these three hotels is ideal for everyone - on the beach boulevard - convenience for buses and trains - using public lift to upper part of town. Getting a table at mealtimes could be awkward as ONE dining room caters for the three hotels (Don Marco, Don Pablo and Don Pedro) ( granted that this is temporary due to "renovations") Evening […] entertainment - choice of either Don Pablo or Don Pedro and type alternated between the two All in all - a pleasant hotel, obliging staff and clean ( rooms a bit "tired") We would still go back Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel in a good location"
The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable had a great view from the 9th floor. The food was good too, plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner. The hotel is just across the road from the beach front with local shops, bars, & restaurants along the promenade. We enjoyed our walks along the front, […] towards Malaga and Benalmadena. We really liked Torremolinos it's a great base to explore from especially with the convenience of the train which makes it easy to get to Malaga & Fuengirola. Overall we had an enjoyable week at the Don Pablo and would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"excellent stay at the sol don pablo, torremolinos"
Had a great time and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this hotel. It was very clean with great restaurant area and loads of public areas for sitting and relaxing. We only had breakfast here, but it was very typical of buffet breakfasts around the world, loads of choice, good quality, but very busy, but it was high season. The bedroom was lovely, […] spacious, clean with a massive bed. Great balcony with side sea views and being high up, got a great view. The bathroom was fab, much better than my shower at home! We were on the 9th floor, the top one, which with a decent lift system was no problem at all, in fact was probably better, lower floors was always full by the time it got to them! Great location with loads of restaurants to choose from. Best for us was the volero on the beach, great steaks and salads. Only downside is people reserving poolside beds, had to pay 9 euros a day for beach instead! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great hotel, good location."
We used this hotel for a 5 night break. We requested two neighbouring rooms which we were allocated (emailed hotel ourselves). We were a party of four girls aged 30-40yrs old and found the hotel to be a very good standard. The Don Marco is on the same site which means you benefit by accessing all the hotel pools. The Don Pablo is 9 storys high and we […] were on the 8th floor which was fine. The glass door and windows onto the balcony are pretty dated and only single panes of glass - secured only by a latch lock but this didn't seem a security issue for us on the 8th floor as we made use of the safe. The restaurant/breakfast facility was excellent with lots of variety from cereals, pancakes, full hot breakfast, fruits, juice and hot drinks. Everything and more that you could want. The pool areas and hotel cleanliness were superb. All staff were lovely and welcoming. We also saw a lifeguard notice a guest with mobility problems and he kindly went out of his way to offer assistance. We had a problem with the bathroom door handle but when we reported it someone came to look at it immediately. (Although the problem did reoccur but we decided to just leave it) as we could manage to put up with it. All in all a great hotel in a good location over looking the beach. We would use this hotel again or even the Don Marco as it looked a bit more modern however we didn't go inside. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sol Don Pablo great value for money"
This is an older hotel but look past that and it was very clean and well run .Food was plentiful with good selection ,we were half board.

"Sol Don Pablo - a bit disappointing"
For a hotel built in the 80s it would appear it has kept the naff decor, meaning it was slightly disappointing for the amount paid. There was a cigarette butt on the floor as we entered the room and the bathroom wasn't as clean as it could have been. We didn't rate it as a four star hotel, although we thought that if you have kids it would be more suitable […] with activities and large pools. The location was ok although be prepared for a steep climb up to the main town area. Doubt we'd go back to this hotel as have stayed in much better accommodation for the same price elsewhere in Torremolinos. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Son Don Pablo is one of 3 Son Don Hotels sharing facilities (pools, restaurants, spa, etc) in Torremolinos. It's opposite the beach, close to plenty of restaurants, beach bars, shops, supermarkets, etc, and it's a short taxi ride from Malaga airport. It has a number of pools to choose from and plenty of sunbeds for use (even though people still reserve […] them and may not even use them). The pool area was cleaned every morning and I saw the maintenance guy check the water quality daily. The pool side was also re-painted mid week, even though it wasn't that shabby. The hotel staff were all very helpful and displayed excellent customer service and the animation guys were very inclusive, asking everyone in 5 or 6 languages to join in the activities. (Archery, pool volleyball, darts, aerobics, yoga....) The room was a decent size, cleaned thoroughly every day and I was very impressed with the standard of the bathroom. It only had a shower - but that's perfect for me. I didn't use any of the restaurants so am unable to comment on the food quality. In all, Son Don Pablo is an excellent hotel and I would gladly return there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Gut gelegen. Viele Pools und nahe beim Strand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Der Aufenthalt war sehr angenehm. Man muss sich bewusst sein, dass dies ein sehr grosses Hotel ist. Gäste aus dem benachbarten Hotel, welche zur gleichen Hotel Gruppe gehören frühstücken am selben Ort. Dass Frühstückbuffet ist sehr reichhaltig. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber, das Badezimmer wurde vermutlich vor nicht allzu langer Zeit neu renoviert. Zimmer […] mit seitlichem Blick zum Pool können am Abend etwas laut sein, da auf dem darunterliegenden Platz das Entertainment statt findet. Die Zimmer haben zwar eine Minibar, die wird aber erst auf Bestellung mit dem gewünschten gefüllt (Bestellzettel auf dem Zimmer ausfüllen).

"Nicht alles was glänzt ist auch Gold!!!!"
Die Aufnahmen des Hotels beschönigen so einiges. Das eigentliche Sol Don Pablo ist ein 9 Stockwerke hoher Hotelziegel mit muffigen Gängen und Aufzügen die einer nicht nachzuvollziehenden Logik folgen. Die Poolanlagen haben auch schon weit bessere Zeiten gesehen. Die Fliesen in den Pool sind an einigen Stelle schon ausgebrochen. Das aufpreispflichtige […] Zimmer mit seitlichem Meerblick ging direkt in den Innenhof mit der Bühne für die Abendveranstaltungen. Abends hatte man das Gefühl die Boxen der Audioanlage direkt im Zimmer zu haben und das bis ca. 0:30 Uhr danach gings mit dem Lärm auf den Gängen bis ca. 1:30 Uhr weiter. Der Speisesaal für Frühstück und Abendessen hatte einen Lärmpegel wie bei der Parade des kölner Karneval. Die Qualität des Essens war durchschnittlich, die Eier meist kalt und der Speck roh. Die Churros hatten einen Geruch als ob das Frittierfett seit Wochen nicht gewechselt wurde. Das Obst nur aus der Dose WARUM??? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Rent och fräscht överallt. Sköna sängar, stora rum, gigantisk frukostbuffe. Minus till antalet hissar samt att dom gick långsamt. Minus även till den extrema ljudvolymen vid frukosten.
