Just returned from a brilliant holiday in Torremolinos having stayed at Hotel Sol Don Pablo.
This is an excellent 4* beach front hotel in a lovely part of Torremolinos and is a great place for family break with or without kids! There's loads to do during the day with very good and varied entertainment at night. Its very clean, in a great location and the food is to a very high standard. I would highly recommend Hotel Sol Don Pablo for a great holiday!

I chose this hotel as my husband was unable to accompany me and would be on my own. It was ideal as the quieter pool was on the other side of the hotel from the main pool and was really intended for adults only and quiet and a good size to swim in. The hotel advertised good entertainment at night, which didn't disappoint, so I knew I had something to occupy me in the evening. I went half-board and the meal times were very flexible to suit every need. There was enough choice at breakfast and dinner which was always carefully monitored by the catering staff. Nearby were plenty of cafes and eating places for lunch and a well stocked supermarket at the end of the hotel drive. I was very impressed with the organisation in the hotel, in the dining room and main areas. I was on the 9th floor and there were 3 lifts, which was never a long wait to get one.
Nice hotel and room, nice sea views and balcony, good air conditioning and fridge in our room. Maybe room a bit small but it was ok as it is. Nice size bathroom with bath and shower.
Quality of food a bit poor, no drinks included at all at restaurant and not allow to drink from your own bottle of water as one of the days we had one with us as we were coming from the beach and were told off.
Restsurant and bar staff not very friendly but activity entertaning guys very friendly.
We will be back again!
The hotel has a big room for buffet breakfast, Cafeteria, Pool Bar, Playing Cards Room, Swimming Pool, Gym (free of …More
Found the hotel to be clean and staff friendly. Pool area was great and the fact that it didn't open until 9.30 made the sunbed situation very civilised. All inclusive food and drinks package was good, plenty of choice although repetitive most nights.
2nd time at the Isabel & nice to see its had a little facelift since the last time. As usual our room was cleaned well everyday by the cheery cleaning staff who worked hard & we're very thorough. The pool's a nice size & always a sunbed available. Only drawback was there never seemed enough staff to cover the inside bar but we only asked for a drink once or twice. Complimentary towels at reception and the refreshing melon slices brought round was a nice touch. If you pay for a sea-view room it's well worth it but request a higher floor if you can :)
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.
