A decent 4-star hotel in an extraordinary spot by the sea, close to both Torremolinos and Benalmádena. The swimming pools are wonderful, the guestrooms are comfortable and there is a wide range of available activities.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The Sol Aloha Puerto hotel is surprisingly well located, on the border between La Carihuela, a traditional fishermen's district of Torremolinos and Puerto Marina in the neighbouring village of Benalmádena. Make sure not to miss out on the delicious "pescaíto frito" served by many restaurants and bars of the district of La Carihuela. As for Puerto Marina, the area around it is perfect for having lunch or dinner in quality restaurants, or to have a lovely stroll while admiring the yachts and boats of the marina. The beach is indeed very close as all you will need to do is walk across the promenade to get to it. Here is some useful information about places and distances: the centre of Torremolinos: 1.5 mi; Malaga airport: 5 mi; the capital of the province, Malaga: 9 mi and Marbella: 22 mi.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has a total of 352 guestrooms, twenty of which have a comfortable lounge furnished with sofas. Most rooms are doubles but they can accommodate a maximum of two adults and two children or three adults and one child. Moreover, 80% have a splendid view of the sea from their balcony, and sometimes even of the vast Puerto Marina. The rooms' air-conditioning, heating and hairdryer are all facilities dedicated to making your stay more pleasant. Guests can hire a safe or a minibar, with or without drinks in the latter.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The hotel consists of three nine-storey buildings with a well-maintained 1980's façade. Amenities are functionally laid out as all common areas are located on the ground and first floors of the central main building. This way, most rooms are close to them. The ground floor abounds in lounges and relaxation areas furnished with fashionable and comfortable sofas. Here you will also find one immense lounge dedicated to shows and sometimes used as a dance floor. Whether in the summertime or in winter, the hotel's most popular amenities are of course the swimming pools, which happen to benefit from a beautiful view, as they look out to the beach of La Carihuela. Three outdoor pools are available: two for adults (one of which is heated) and one for children. After you have enjoyed the surprising seascape around, the huge shopping centre in the lobby area itself will catch your eye: here you will find many fashion, jewellery and clothes shops, as well as a hairdresser's salon.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    The hotel's main restaurant is a huge hall, very bright thanks to the bay windows surrounding it, giving guests a view of the garden and pool. The atmosphere could be friendlier. The furniture and general aspect of this vast dining hall are functional, but it will remind you more of a cafeteria than of the restaurant of a 4-star hotel. International gourmet dishes are served as a buffet and dinner dishes available include freshly grilled meats and fish. Hot and cold drinks are also available in the numerous bars of the hotel: the main bar is open all day, the beach bar has a terrace and is only open in summer, and a third bar facing the beach serves sandwiches, burgers and other snacks.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Access to La Carihuela beach is direct from the hotel, as all you need to do is walk across the promenade to get to it. The sand is dark but clean, the water is just as clean, almost all year round, and you will find parasols and hammocks hired out by a private agency (allow roughly ?10 for a full set).

    To know

    The Sol Aloha Puerto hotel is open all year long but the clientele varies depending on the season. In winter, the clientele is essentially international (with a majority of Britons) and retired, whereas in summer Spanish families fill up the hotel. All year round, day and night, activities and shows take place, although the winter activities are only for adults. In summer however, kids' activities are organized by professionals within the mini-club. This hotel has no car park but it is easy enough to park in the streets around, even for free in some of them. In summer of course, less and less spaces are available. The hotel is not equipped with wireless internet but several computers are at the guests' disposal for connecting to the internet (for a fee) in various areas of the hotel. The thalassotherapy facilities of the Meliá Costa del Sol hotel are accessible to the guests of the Sol Aloha Puerto, located 1.5 mi away, as they are part of the same hotel group (Sol Meliá). They consist of a small gym, a complete thalassotherapy course (sauna, hammam, power shower, whirlpool bath and two pools), bodycare and massage booths, entirely dedicated to worshipping the body.

      The Griego Mar hotel is situated in the middle of the resort of Torremolinos, some 3,000 ft from the sea, on the Costa del Sol. It offers good value for money and its all-inclusive option is ideal for families who are looking for high quality entertainment. Known for its night-club, the hotel is unfortunately very far from the beach and the concrete blocks which surround it kill all its charm.

      The Pez Espada is emblematic of Torremolinos, as its opening in 1959 marked the beginning of the hotel industry on the Costa del Sol. The building looks just like a classic 1950's Miami hotel and has hosted numerous celebrities and personalities in its day. It has kept pace with the times though, and is now a charming 4 star holiday hotel, ideal for a romantic break or a nostalgic dip into the past.
