    Location 6.38 /10

    The Tarik hotel is located 15 minutes away on foot from Torremolinos centre (1 mile). Built right on the verge of the sea, it takes advantage in turn of Bajondillo beach (330 feet away) and Playamar's one... that is located 16 feet away, facing the hotel patio, through the small road of Paseo Maritimo that you will have to cross over. About twenty minutes to get to the airport (4 miles).

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 95 rooms of the Tarik are spacious (215 feet²) and well soundproofed. They are furnished in Andalousian style with dark scuplted wood chests of drawers. All offer air-conditioning (individual), satellite TV, a large armchair, a safe (paying), a bathroom with bathtub and a hair-dryer. There are two small bath soaps as welcome products. The lighting is sometimes not enough, due to the small window, but sufficiently functional in the evening. Our advice: stay away from the rooms on the first floor, too dark and choose one with a seaview.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1955 and launched under the name of Don Martin, the official Tarik has been existing since 1974, one year after the repurchase by its current owner, Mr Jesus Agudo Urdiales. Well before the construction of the Paseo Maritimo in 1972, a semi-pedestrian road that borders Torremolinos beaches, this hotel was one of the only hotels in the small Andalusian town. Based on Mr Urdiales stories, this hotel was the first one opened: as a proof, there is a photo dated from 1957 where you can see the building surrounded by cultivated land and the same beach. Yet, there is another hotel that was officially launched, the Pez Espada. You got the point, the Tarik is an exception: as for the architecture, first of all, a 2-storey square building forming a patio around a small garden and its Andalousian style pool. The whitewashed walls enclose the reception bar that opens toward the restaurant. Then, there is the location, on the pavement of Paseo, at a few feet from the beach. Surrounded by large apartment towers, the huge nearby hotels, and the numerous restaurants, you can almost pass by without even noticing it. At least, you are not going to get lost here. Well decorated, the comfort of the hotel is also rustic. But the small size makes it a friendly destination.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The restaurant dining-room is divided in two parts: one for the buffet, the other one for specialities (Italian cuisine). The buffet offers all 3 meals. International (not very local) cusine offered. The food served is good (very good for breakfast), but you might get tired of it. Fortunatly, the Paseo Maritimo , like Torremolinos centre offers lots of small restaurants with grilled Andalusian fish, Italian and even Chinese specialities... If you want more picturesque, you should try the small restaurants in downtown, less expensive and sometimes even more qualitative. The hotel bar is also a snack.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    Unmistakably the best point of the hotel. Located 16 feet from the hotel, and accessible crossing over the small road (first non-pedestrian, then pedestrian), of Paseo Maritimo, the hotel beach is public, like all other beaches in the area. You can choose between Playmar beach, right in front of the hotel; Bajondillo beach, a little more south and los Alamos beach, located 985 feet north from the hotel. Very crowded in summer time, all offer beach chairs (for rent, abour 15 euros a week, 12 pounds), sunshades and has boat clubs. Huge, they stretch on several miles and offer a large 330-foot strip of sand. The sand is grey, not very fine, like all beaches in Costa del Sol. Few stones in front of the hotel, comparing with other places.

    To know

    The Tarik was one of the first hotels built on the coast, just a few steps away from Playamar beach, adopting a rustic Andalusian architecture. It is a hardliner among the numerous concrete hotels in the area. Few rooms, few sports equipments, it is a good destination for those seeking tranquility. Far, maybe too far from the classic club-hotels. Thus this complex alows you to spend a seaside stay in a friendly ambiance. But, like all its decorations, you should appreciate the rustic comfort. The owner knows all the history of his hotel as well of the town and he loves telling about it. A real living memory you can listen to... provided that you understand a little bit of Spanish!

      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.
