"I'm afraid I was disappointed. Unable to use the pool due to it being rented out for private functions. Room was small, no English channels on TV. Except the news, food very basic. Sorry won't be coming back. "

DO NOT GO HERE
"Worst place I have ever stayed - if they paid me I wouldn't go back for a second! Electrical sockets hanging off wall in room with wires exposed, dirty bed clothes, thread bare carpet (this is being generous),huge cockroach in filthy bath, tiny TV, room door wouldn't lock.. Lift is what I imagine the first lift ever invented where you get in and close the door yourself! Stairs to pool dangerous, pool itself filthy. WiFi not working, unless you pay for it at reception. Air con not switched on as "it costs too much money to run" we were told at reception. Breakfast inedible couldn't even drink the tea/coffee as water was grey. Went to reception first night to complain & was met by the most arrogant man I have ever come across, he swore at me & told me he would change my room for one in the newer tower for a fee!!! I said I was going to call the police, he said ill give you their number if it gets you out of my face. Awful experience will not be repeating. Only good point is central location, but you'd be better off sleeping across the road on the beach! Best part was the door on way out! Sh1thole"

Dont go there
"Just got back terrible hotel tired and needs updating couldt get to pool as we are disabled 4 flights of stairs to climb. no tea or coffee making facilitys in the rooms,if all inclusive no waiter service in the bar. no entertainment in the evenings just records and bingo if you win you receive tokens which must be used in the hotel, if allinclusive what can you spend them on. food is quite plain with quite a lot of pork being served. the only good thing is the location if your lucky enough to get a sea view room. the noise at weekends can be quite loud ."

A GOOD LOCATION
"This is a good location for this hotel but they need to bring the food up to scratch they need to serve gravy with there evening meals and maybe scrambled egg for breakfast we asked for the 16th floor because they have a disco on the basement but otherwise we were satisfied as the room was cleaned daily and fresh linen was provided for the daily made up beds and clean towels every day we had a great time as we come to this resort twice a year."

Not value for money and could do with a makeover.
"Stayed 10nights. Location central. Room small but clean. Staff pleasant. We were half board, breakfast ok but dinner a disaster, serving same food each night. We ended up eating out. Noise from disco was horrendous until 6a.m. We will never stay here again and wont be recommending it."

VERY MISLEADING BY THE WRITE UP OF HOTEL
"i booked this hotel thro holidaygems ltd on there it said there was a bar, did not open during the day till 8 pm.so that meant you could not get a refreshment or hot drink during the day. there was tottaly no entertainment, the pool had no toilets you had to use the toilet in your room witch was 10 flights down,the food was very poor and just warm ,veil,pork,chichen fish that was every day of the stay IE FULL BOARD and if you liked chips you were laughing.overall VERY POOR HOTEL FOR THE MONEY I PAID FOR THE SEVICES WITCH WAS NOT AVAILABLE ,SO I PAID GOOD MONEY FOR A BED AND WARM FOOD, BY YOUR BROCHURE IT LOOKED GREAT AND THE EXTRAS GREAT,OVERALL VERY DIAPOINTED."

"I went to the hotel a couple of years ago and did not enjoy it. The food was the same every night, thanks god we only went for one week and not two. It was always some sort of meat in 3 different sauces. Our room was carpeted with some old bright green carpet and not tiled, not very hygienic. The last day had finally arrived and we put our luggage in a LOCKED room while we waited for our coach to arrive. We went for something to eat then returned to collect our luggage. 300 Euros had been stolen out of our case, we went straight to the reception and all they did was give us a map to the nearest police station, the service was dreadful. Will not be attending that hotel EVER again. "

"The hotel is superbly located for the beach and the marina. It is only a short walk from the station which cot only 3.80 Euros for two of us each way from Malaga airport. Train takes about 30 mins and is air conditioned . The hotel pool was great always room and no queuing or having to reserve. Food was ok breakfast typical of hotel 3 * with reasonable choice. Evening meal was of good standard lots of choice fish and meat and salads and we both ate well. There are so many great bars and restaurants that we always had new places to try. O'Briens bar was great for draught Guinness at 4 euros pint but there was also the Toon bar where san miguel draught was only 1.5 euros a pint even if the bar itself was small and a bit basic there is sky Tv on great for footy. We found a deightful English tea room called Temptations in las Ramplas facing Dunnes the carrot cake apple pie deep and gorgeous and sandwiches and pots of tea were to die for and served by nice English people too .Went there every afternoon about 2.30 Closes for 2 hours at 3.30pm . It was a bit noisy upto the early hours but we got a room high up in the taller tower facing the pool and it was livable you get used to it and any way who wants to go to bed that erly on hols. Hotel entertainment wasn't that good but most people dont really want it as they are out and about. Lots of spanish stay here so that speaks for itself they know value for money.Lifts too were ok and not as we had read of course there are busier times than other we found 9.30- 11 the most busy period. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we got into our room at 1.30 not 3pm as stated and you dont have to be out until 12 noon which can help.Air conditioning very good but goes off 2am - 7am for some reason. Would go there again as it was value for money and we had a pleasant holiday. Don't miss the tues market it is great with lots of bargains but very big to get around takes quite a few hours"

"Overall we had great holiday. Hotel wasnât the best but clean bed every day and new bathroom was enough compare to the price. Staff helpful and very friendly. I regret that hotel didnât provide local or continental food I was expected. Self catering I'd recommend for future holidays maker. If you want to try local food I'd recommend all restaurant a bit far from seaside, especially those where Spanish are eating. That means you will be eat good and also cheaper. Be ready for no English speakers-dictionary necessary-but friendly. Location of the hotel is perfect, near everything: shops, supermarket, beach, marina, etc. There's no car park provided so if you going to rent a car you have to pay for car space in town. Crazy drivers, aircon necessary!!!! Be careful on the road!"

"We stayed at the El Puerto hotel in Fuengirola from 25 September till 2 October. There was three of us two adults and one child age 2 & 1/2. The location is great, right in the resort centre across the road from the beach and fair and play park close by for children. The hotel doesn't look much from outside but better inside, the reception is great, bright, and clean and reception staff were a great help. The hotel staff are friendly and made an effort especially with my child. This was a budget holiday and it only cost us a total of Â£583 including flights, insurance, 7 nights half board, and a weekâs car hire. The hotel is 3 star, the rooms are small, but clean come with a/c and TV. safe is also available. If you go here ask for a room with sea view absolutely fantastic! The bar was great 2-4-1 between 6 & 7 works out about Â£1-12 a pint ! The meals are nice but there isn't loads of variety no plain pasta or rice to go with meal normally potatoes or chips. Thereâs not much to eat for the children, but there are an abundance of restaurants surrounding the hotel and McDonalds opposite. The swimming pool is good right on the roof 10 floors up great views and good for sunbathing. The weather was brilliant hot and sunny all week. The hotel has flexible dinning so you can have breakfast and lunch or breakfast and dinner itâs your choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, this hotel is for a low budget so don't expect the Ritz. Go here if you want a cheap accommodation, with no frills, but be prepared to dine out if you are choosey about what you eat. Also car parking on the front so if you hire a car expect to pay for parking or find a space in the back streets 10 min walk away."

"Found this hotel to be so-so. It's basic and functional. Rooms are similar standard to a Travel lodge in the UK. It is a good central location and a 2 minute walk to the bus and train station and town centre. Right on the beach. It is clean and the food in the restaurant is good with a good choice at each meal. I would probably only do b&b in Fuengirola as the place is overrun with restaurants. Found the staff were friendly. Bathroom was small but clean with new towels every day and a hairdryer. Room was cleaned every day. Great view across the harbour from the balcony. I would say that I found the hotel very noisy - due to its location and seemingly thin walls. After two weeks here I moved to another hotel for some peace! I also didn't like that there was smoking allowed in the rooms and I could often smell the smoke coming through the ventilation system from next door. Some guests I spoke to had been to the hotel year after year but I personally would only stay here again for a short stay (2 or 3 nights) purely due to the noise."
