Sprawling and rather ugly, the southern Spanish resort of Torremolinos is a hub of mass tourism, crammed with holiday-makers speaking all sorts of languages, all vying to have as much fun in the sun as possible. Ranging along miles of wide sandy beaches, the holiday resort pumps at a hectic pace, with the action movingmore
Great food, warm welcome!!!! - Lorna & Stewart Mursell. Date of travel: Feb 2010
Just back from a four day break to Torremolinos for my 30th birthday & had a fab time! On the last nite of our holiday we discovered the Carihuela Carvery bar. the chef Robbie was great, he made us so welcome & made a fuss over me when my husband told him it was my birthday. The food & the service was second to none, our only regret being we didn't find it sooner lol, we will definitely be returning there again in the future!!!
Torremolinos - ok!!! - Calzbarratt. Date of travel: Aug 2009
Torremolinos, not bad.
Torremolinos beach club fantastic - Jane, Paul and Krystal Gratton. Date of travel: May 2008
We went to Torremolinos in May 2008, best holiday hotel so far. I'm fussy about were I stay and what I eat and this was a 10 star hotel. Going back September, can't wait. My daughter is 10 and she enjoyed every minute! Met loads of friends, entertainment first class, staff no 1. Ten out of ten overall!
The Carvery - The Best on the Carihuela. - Jenny & Ian Baker-Griffiths. Date of travel: Nov 2006
Have returned to The Carvery for the past 5 years since they they opened. We go 2 or 3 times twice a year and have always had a wonderful meal and a warm reception from all the hospital staff. Nothing is too much trouble, and the food is always first class. Give them a visit - I promise you'll not be disappointed, and will go back time and again.

La Carihuela. - The Barwick Family.. Date of travel: Jun 2006
The La Carihuela is the original fishing village where it all started for Torremolinos. The first hotel to accomodate tourists still exists on the beach front. The Paseo Maritmo is lovely to walk along and you must try the wonderfull food that is served,straight from the Med to your table. Do not come here if you want pie and chips,there are one or two british bars but they are small. You can large it in the centre of Torremolinos if you wish, go to the Bailey for great beer and food. The majority of bars and businesses in La Carihuela are run by Spanish families, so the service and friendly welcome make such a change to the dumb tourist service you get elsewhere. So if you want a Spanish feel holiday mixing with the locals( it gets packed on saturday and sunday with Spanish families,so shows you how good it is when all the people from Malaga visit) then head for La Carihuela, but dont tell anyone else as we want to keep it as it is. And check out El Horno Beach Bar for great food, sunbeds, staff and food. Oh and my 6 and 8 year old boys say go to the Sealife Centre in Benalmadena Marina and The Crocodile park!

Torremolinos is not a bad resort - Linda John Johnson. Date of travel: Mar 2006

Torremolinos is an amazing place to go to, huge parties and always a good nite out. Daytime can be a bit bland but where isn't daytime bland. We went for a lads holiday and that's exactly what we got. The calle san miguel is simply amazing to shop for gifts and eat with perfect restaurants all over. Torremolinos has everything you need for a holiday. Hollie Fitzsimons is the bar to go to karaoke every nite dj playing every nite drink is cheap AND FREE/GRATIS entry to nightclubs. You'd be mad not to go. Tour Operator: independent

Torremolinos itself doesn't have a great deal going for it but the beaches are clean with soft sand and plenty of sun beds. The water park at Torremolinos was worth a visit and Calle San Miguel is a good place for the children to spend their pocket money on the usual holiday tat. The walk along the promenade from Torremolinos to Benalmadena was pleasant in the evening and the yachts in the marina at Benalmadena were something to see. The marina area at Benalmadena was very stylish and "grown up" if you are travelling without children. Tour Operator: Independent

The resort didnt really live up to the expectations people had lead me to believe it was. We had to travelto Benalmadena for any decent nightlife and that would cost e10 in a taxi. San Miguel,the main shopping and drinking square, was lovely but we had about a 15 minute walk up a million steps to reach it.It may have just been that we went early in June and the resort was just coming alive but we found ourselves getting quite bored occasionaly. We drank in alot of the bars on the beach and the Irish barsie The Shamrock. They were quite good. We loved the fried bread over there and their fryups were gorgeous. The people over there were very mannerly and friendly. While we were over there the world cup was on so the atmosphere was centred on the pubs and bars in the mornings and afternoons. I wouldnt go back to Torremolinos though. I never got the holiday feeling you usually get and felt I hadntbeen away at all.
Torremolinas was great - margaret, sam and samantha dooley. Date of travel: Aug 2004
This is a beautiful place, i would love to go back forever, it wasnt over crowded even tho it was roasting, the sand was two hot to stand on, the sea was as blue as you could want, nite life brill shopping 5 star plenty to see and do , with a waterpark nearby and a crocodile park too, close to gibralta and tangier you could take advantage of excersions to these places i would recomend this place to all ages and rate it 5* Tour Operator: thompson
