4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I loved the decor it made it feel really special. The staff we’re really helpful and spoke good English. The only let down is that the corridors were really echoey so when a couple of rooms down came home in the early hours each night and talking really loudly it felt like they were in our room. I guess we could have asked to live rooms but it was only a short stay so didn’t seem worth the hassle.

    Don Paquito Essence Hotel Torremolinos

    Highly recommend this hotel. Staff helpful and friendly. Facilities good overall. Menu to suit all tastes, although more labelling would have been useful. Location good, only two minute stroll to beach and nearby restaurants and bars. Fifteen minute amble to centre and railway station with connection to Malaga airport( rail tickets rechargeable so don't discard) Mixture of music played in restaurant/hotel but would appreciate more Spanish, Rodrigo for example. Recommend Pepe Lopez Flamenco show if you want some Spanish culture.

    The hotel was very nice. Food options for breakfast and dinner weren’t great. Excellent service from staff. Room service however could have been better.
