"Nice hotel close to the beach and local amenities"
Family friendly hotel, restaurant on site, the time of year we went was January just got back from a 2 day birthday break and was happy with the location. A 20 minute stroll and your are in the town area, plenty of shops and restaurants.
Would return. Didn't go in the pool as it was not heated but time of year so I expected that.
Nice large room with comfortable bed. Nice sea view. But room carpet was very dirty and room smelled badly of cigarette smoke even though it was for no smoking. Noisy outside at night because of gangs hanging out by the stair-walkway located next to hotel and leads from the beach to the top at the city. Noisy in the morning as the hotel is going through major renovations.
I needed a place to stay the night before the obscenely early 0640 Iberia flight to MAD. This place fits the bill perfectly- clean, warm, friendly English speaking staff. Their food lacks pizazz, but I was looking more for a warm shower and a good night's sleep prior to a long journey home to Charlotte than for a gourmet meal. It is a bit tricky to find, and I spent quite a bit of time driving about trying to find it and the staff could not direct me. It was a friendly clerk in a nearby gas station who finally drew a map for me to find the place. But that off the beaten path location is precisely why I had a good night's sleep- it is in a very quiet spot away from the main highway, not too far from La Colina train station if that helps you find the place. The staff offered that they would come and get me if I found the train station.
The room consisted of self catering board with many facilities including an electric cooker, toaster, microwave, and kettle. nearby local supermarket included LIDL. there was a supermarket in the hotel as well a laundrette, hairdresser and gift shop. With an small extra premium we took the room with a full view of the tides breaking onto a sandy beach as well as guests settled around a pool and this created a lively atmosphere with refreshingly cool April winds blowing into the room. this contributed to a very real feel of being in the Mediterranean and away from hectic UK life style and the UK weather. the Spanish community were friendly and well accustomed to a variety of tourist backgrounds
Hotel surrounded by high rise residential properties. I should imagine the pool area would be shade even at the height of Summer. Difficult to find parking even in January, hotel parking (self parking) at 13€ per day plus 20€ deposit for the key. Breakfast - Machine coffee and artificial orange juice. Overall a pleasant stay but I think the hotel star rating should be 3 stars.
Although showing its age in areas, La Barracuda is clean and tidy, including spacious rooms with a large restaurant area, along with professional friendly staff willing to assist guests if able to do so.
Priced within the economy/mid range which matches its facilities, location and requirements for travelling guests either solo or family.

There is more than meets the stereotype to this Anglo-centric seaside resort. While most of Torremolinos is a brash high-rise heaven for fun-loving Brits, the low-rise western part is patronised by the Spanish and has a very different character. Soft golden sands stretch either side of town and there is a huge choice of entertainments by day and night. Aquapark is a white-knuckle water world; Tivoli World is the region’s major theme park.
