Torremolinos lies on a hillside 9 miles from Malaga airport, and has a huge concentration of large hotels. The young and lively in the summer season, give way to the elderly escaping the British weather in the winter months. With some of the best beaches on the coast and a marina in the Benalmadena area, you can see why this has been a favourite with the British tourist for the past 30 years. An Aquapark for the kids with swimming pools and water slides, a traffic free shopping precinct with outdoor market for the mums, and 2 golf courses for the dads ensures there's something here to suit everyone. Dozens of discos, hundreds of bars and a casino, will kill any thought of an early night for those seeking a more relaxing time.
Like most of the popular European resorts, you'll find a huge amount of bars, pubs and restaurants here, serving every food combination you can think of. Plenty of fast food outlets give you the choice of burgers, pizzas and various fried chicken combinations with generous helpings of chips and salad if that's what you like. More traditional fare such as Sopa de Pescado (garlic stew with fish and tomatoes), Calderetas (lamb stew with almonds) and the fish specials Calamari (squid in batter deep fried) and Longostinos (giant prawns) are all worth a try. The local beers are as good as anything you'll drink back home and probably cheaper too. Wines and of course Sangria, are there to be enjoyed at every meal, and add to that the imported varieties and your drinking choice is endless.
REVIEW BY: L Berry - January 2010
Torremilinos is a brilliant resort for all ages we always found some sort of entertainment especially during the evening, as there are loads of great bars, discos and restaurants which the 4 of us enjoyed.
The Hotel Isabel is located close to all the entertainment, the beach just across the busy prom, the hotel itself is a good standard, compact, but with lovely gardens and pool, always got a lounger whatever the time.
We would highly recommend this hotel and probably re-visit in the future.
