    Location 5.61 /10

    The Melia Costa del Sol is located along the coastal road facing the Bajondillo beach. It is located 4 miles from the airport and 1 mile from Torremolinos centre. Allow about fifteen minutes for transfers from the airport.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The 540 rooms, including 430 standard rooms and 54 suites, are large (more than 215 feet²), comfortable and bright. They all have a small balcony with a view of the sea. For a better panorama ask for the rooms located from the 5th floor. The ambiance of the rooms is muffled (carpet floor) and classic. The furniture is quite fancy with headboard, desk, large cupboards with large mirrors, night tables and inlaid wood dresser. All the rooms offer air-condtioning, a free safe, satellite TV, a telephone with direct international telephone line, with Internet connection (Wifi and ADSL, by request) and a filled mini-bar (coca, water and orange juice). The bathrooms are quite large and equipped with a washbasin, a bathtub, a bidet and toilets.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Built in 1976 and entirely renovated in 2004, the Melia Costa del Sol is a group of two 9-storey buildings, separated by the reception and the pool. It is surrounded by a small solarium and by grass areas where beach chairs are disposed (free). The place is quite quiet, since the coastal road passes right behind the hotel. The space is quite insufficient comparing to the welcoming capacity of the hotel. Inside, you should often cross over long hallways to go from one place to another. Here you will also find the two small shops, the Internet area, the drinks and cigarettes vending machines or the game rooms. An animator (two, in winter) offers different activities like games, dart competitions, petanque or archery, as well as two gym and stretching sessions. Depending on the evenings, you can have fun with the professional shows (singers, nightclub, flamenco...) or with the Bingo evening.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Melia Costa del Sol unique restaurant is a large room with warmer decoration than the rest of the hotel. It can welcome up to 250 people, 350 in summer time since the assembly rooms are open. Even if the tables are quite close to one another, you will still be able to enjoy some privacy. In high season, the restaurant is open for all three meals, served as buffet. In low season, the snack-bar, ''La Pora'' that is prosperous and highly respected (Paseo Maritimo bordering the coast), offers a good alternative for lunch or dinner with its menu of cheap specialities (about 7 euros each, 6 pounds) and its selection of international dishes.
    The buffets are appetizing and very well presented. You can notice a special concern for the variety of the dishes offered. For dinner, you will have the choice between raw vegetables, soups, cooked meats (inclduing foie gras) and mixed salads. The dishes are formed by at least 3 fish selections, 3 meats and a dozen of different garnishes (rice, pasta, vegetables...). The desserts are more classic: ice creams, fresh fruits, fruits salads, creams... However, once a week, a buffet of traditional desserts is offered.

    Beach 6.95 /10

    The bajondillo beach is separated from the hotel by the coastal road. It is large, quite flat and with no particular charm. The sand is grey and it mixes with small stones on the verge of the water. The beach is windswept but the waves (when there are some) are not very dangerous. This place is very crowded. In high season, the beach is supervised by life-guards. Different beach attendants will help you rent beach chairs, mattresses and sunshades by the day. You wil also find showers to clean yourself when you get out of the water. There are also different kinds of boat clubs that allow you to practice activities like water skiing, jet skiing, sailing and pedalo.

    To know

    For the past 15 years, the hotel has been offering a well-known thalassatherapy centre, 16,140 feet², offering a large variety of treatments: jet showers, seaweeds envelopments, heliotherapy... Here you will find two hut tubs pools, a sauna and a hammam. One of the pool is filled with sea water, transported directly from the beach through an underpass tubing system. The services are various, from the simple massage to a 5 day therapy. A doctor is there every day. Are there any takers?
    Note that: an internal elevator allows the clients to access Torremolinos downtown.
    The hotel offers two rooms fitted out specially for people with disabilities. Two floors are completely non-smoking.

      This modest little establishment, which has no more than a hundred guest rooms in total, will appeal to those looking for somewhere to spend a few days at the seaside in clean and friendly surroundings. Having said that, the facilities here are certainly limited: a swimming pool and precious little else!

      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.
