Booked this hotel with half board. Both my boyfriend and I got food poisoning on our second day here and we had only eaten at the hotel. Hotel staff were unsympathic and unhelpful. I won't be coming back here again. they wouldn't refund us what we paid for food here. Also the rooms smell.

Pleasant and comfortable

The bedroom was very pleasant and the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was decorated to a decent standard. The hotel staff was nice and helpful and I found my stay at the hotel very pleasing and memorable. Improvements I think however need to be made to the lobby of the hotel to make it more inviting and for people to be able to relax in a pleasant and tastefully decorated surrounding.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Cervantes Hotel

Service Not Included

from A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms were average, the cleanliness of the hotel was average, and the surrounding area was just okay. The problem that was prevalent throughout the hotel was that the service and attitude displayed by everyone, except the hotel maids, was absolutely horrible. Our experience started with extremely rude receptionists. These receptionists were unfriendly, uncaring, rude, and consistently acts as if they are doing you a favor by merely doing their job. The food, rooms, and cleanliness were a 5 out of 10, what makes this hotel a place to avoid is the consistently awful treatment paying guests receive.

Average to good hotel in great location

from efetters
We stayed at the Cervantes for 2 nights in June 05. I'd rate it a 3Star. Good value for the price.Clean, refurbished. Air conditioning a little sluggish so we changed rooms. Great location with a public square and many good restaurants, bars and nightlife within a few blocks. But, a long walk to the beach. We stayed at Cervantes as part of a package, but spend additional nights at the Melia Costa del Sol hotel (on the beach), which was a great hotel for not much more per night.

adequate, but would not stay again

from mbengero
room is adequate - clean room & sheets - but no air conditioning and the twin beds (pushed together) kept on sliding apart. the in-room safe is not free, and costs 2.5 euros/day. not a 4-star hotel, far enough from the beach (about 3/4 mile downhill, or a lift ride that costs 0.50 euros), but close proximity to calle san miguel as well as the cafes and grocery stores might make it satisfactory considering how hot it got in the room (unless you opened the balcony door to let air in) at night, and how annoying it was to keep on falling between the beds ... no, not funny :-(

good!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of July 2004 while on a band trip with my school. Personally, I loved it!!! They accomodated the 50 of us 16 and 17 year olds really well. The location was great!!!, the rooms were big and spacious (I was in a triple and it still felt big and spacious), and the common area near reception was nice. The food was a bit bland, but we didnt really care. The pool's nice although they could do with a few more beach chairs. It's a good hotel for the price. I'd definately stay here again!!

Pleasantly surprised

from A TripAdvisor Member
Having read some of the reviews on this hotel my Husband and I were dreading going last weekend.
We returned monday, after a weekend break, and have to say we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We found the hotel very pleasant, clean, some building work still being carried out on modernising some rooms, but they were very considerate in the times work was done.
We had a great balcony view of the pool, sea and main square.
I have to admit on the comments about the breakfast, it wasn't the best I have had, but there was alot of spanish staying at the hotel who all seemed to enjoy it, it certainly didn't spoil the break.
We will definately consider staying at this hotel again for a weekend break, even if it is just for location..... for little over a euro on train from the airport and timeframe of 7mins, you can't get much better.

Very good value

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for only one night (Saturday 26th February 2005) after arriving late at Malaga airprt. It is very convenient and well signed from the centre of town. The room was very clean and attractive and the shower over the bath hot and powerful. The buffet meal we had in the restaurant in the evening provided a wide choice and was very good value and the only crticism we had of the enormous buffet breakfast was the lack of fresh fruit which we sadly didnot have the night before, thinking it would appear for breakfast.

Parking could be a problem but generally we were very satisfied.

One happy bunny

from A TripAdvisor Member
Because I am a useless Christmas shopper I decided to buy myself and wife a short break to Spain as a present.
We travelled Easy Jet (cheap as chips and as always excellent..thank you visionary Stallios). As always we were early!
Leave the airport , walk to train stop and one Euro gets you to Torremolinos station, walk out of station and Cervantes is there!

Liverpool 6.30am gales,hail,grey skys and a ----- Tuesday ahead 3 hrs later we are asking reception if we can check in early.
The very friendly receptionist asked which room we wanted, we chose room 712 and I rapidly sat on a balcony overlooking the Med and the Bay of Malaga with the clearest blue skies which lured Hemmingway to the south of Spain and I am a happy bunny.

Like a lot of things in Spain such as the Goudi Cathedral in Barca, the Andalucian coastline is still under construction and the view from room 712 would appeal to any 'Bob the Builder' afficianado. But I like Bob!

Torremolinos is a vibrant, growing cosmopolitan mish mash of a town grown from severe poverty derived from heat and mosquitos and the whole area has pulled it's finger out and created a sea frontage without compare. The infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired for busy periods a half hourly train is inadequate even in low season.
To see the dark side of Torremolinos/Benalmedina go 200mts up at Montemar.

Strictly as a hotel review the Cervantes has an excellent situation.
Cleanliness and the overall smell of the place is good.
The staff are friendly and really accomodating (Can I leave my bag here and pick it up at 4.00pm no problem).
The hotel has a swimming pool both on the roof and downstairs it is central,and walk outside to the buzz of Torre.
Big screen TV, a 5 star bar and what ever previous reviewers have said the breakfast is not bad, in fact it is very good.

Look out for Milano salami,churroz and the hot chocolate from the machine.

If you want bacon egg and beans they are there and why not try a sticky bun.
Oh yes don't eat the strangled egg!!! and perhaps the reconstituted bacon and the baked beans are a bit dodgy, forget the weiners! But you can make your own toast.

I am a bit peeved with previous reviews about this hotel.

I am well travelled and have stayed in many 4 star hotels eg. Madrid, Paris, Barca, Tampa, Athens, Birmingham, London, NY, and this hotel is Fine not 4 star but fine.
It is not the Savoy but at 80 Euros it is not going to be.
Prior to leaving the hotel 14/01/05 we met 8 Irish lads on the binge I hope they behaved themselves!

My wife nearly cancelled our holiday after reading prior reviews on this site. I would say that in January when the hotel is well below capacity it is a fine place to stay and discover Andolucia.

In high season I think the whole ambience of the hotel would collapse due to the heat and the propensity of the multicultured ragamuffins wandering the streets of Torre and the ability of the overworked staff to say no!

I hope future reviewers prove me wrong.

I enjoyed my stay.

Great for off season weekend breaks

from croppedboy
I have read several bad reviews of this hotel but having stayed there twice in the last 2 months for a four day weekend break I loved it. Yes it is a bit faded 70s style hotel but its close to everything in town and a pleasant stroll away from the beach. Its also close to the huge gay scene around La Nogalera and has never disappointed me as much as your other reviewers. I am going there again in 2 weeks for another long weekend and cant wait! People who visit Torromilinos should look beyond the concrete tattiness of the resort and realize that there is the spirit of Andulucian culture and music in all tht people who live inthe resortpermanently and this resort is Spanish to the core

This dump has WALLS OF CARDBOARD !

from chriscork
This is a 2 star hotel not a 4 star which means very poor value for EUR 80 a night. Due to a late flight into Malaga I decided to stay somewhere close before heading onward to my Andelucia tour (Torrmolinos itself is a total dump too by the way!). I would have stayed in the airport hotel if I could find one.

I didn't care about the dated room decor, or lack of 4 star hotel facilities, what I really wanted was a good night's sleep. The bed was like something you get in low end student digs, also, two singles not the double as requested.

However, all this would have been ok were it not for the CARDBOARD WALLS. A couple was next door yapping all night. At 0330 I couldn't take it any more and hammered my fist on the wall a few times. Thankfully this lead to a sudden silence rather than someone knocking my door down and I went back to bed, unable to sleep because I was so ---- off with this crap hotel.

I don't normally bother to review hotels online but during my sleepless night I swore to myself that I wouldn't let this go without letting the world know.

I really couldnt recommend strongly enough to stay away from this hotel. If you're considering a stay in Torremolinos you would do yourself a big favour by choosing an alternative itinerary.

Poor room and food quality

from pete1212
Maybe it is okay if you don't have your meals there and if your neighboors are quiet (or if you don't have any).

We were there 5 nights in january 2005 and were very disappointed by a "4 stars" hotel because of the following problems:

- the food is terrible, being the breakfast buffet OR the evening buffet (despite the price: 20 Euros). After 5 breakfasts, we almost find out the comestible stuff out of the breakfast buffet.
- you can hear everything what happens on the floor (discussions, shower...). By the way, refuse any room with an adjoining room if you don't need it, because the separation door is really poor.
- we could also hear noises from outside (street work) altough we were on the 4th floor

Those were the biggest problems. Other things which should prohibit the hotel to have so many stars, but which are less annoying:

- cleanness of the room seems acceptable but is far from perfect (don't look under your bed)
- TV (36cm, from last century, with almost 10 channels)
- furniture (quite old and not so nice)

Top Local Tips for Torremolinos

The Lift There is a lift from the beach to the top of Torremolinos which only costs 1 euro, its worth it because it is one hell of a walk!!!

eat somewhere else eat somewhere else

Stay elsewhere if you like the beach If you want to stay on the beach, forget this place. If you want a nice, friendly, helpful front desk staff, forget this place. If you want a quiet hotel, forget this place.
