"We did not expect to have to pay 2euro each day per person for sunbeds at the pool we thought we had spent enough money booking at the start which we weren't happy about, had to also pay to use the WiFi ! Not suitable for a couple as only have single beds! For the amount we paid for our room it was not worth the money as had no air conditioning. Staff were nice and friendly but wont be going here again next time!"

happy holiday at the sol timor 3rd visit
"Just returned from the Sol Timor and once again we have enjoyed our time there. Lovely well established staff, great service, nice shows, some people complain they have to pay for the sun beds but when you come down in the morning and see over a hundred sunbeds with no towels on them, we think the systems works very well. You pay for what you need and to us it's a very fair price to pay, but it wont please the people who come down early and leave the towels on the beds while they often go shopping etc. so long may it continue looking forward to going back sometime soon. Nice touch leaving us with fruit & water in the room on arrival & the bottle of champagne on my birthday. Great service :)"

Expensive for an older Apartment Block
"Came back for the second time to Sol Timor Apts,The place is a bit tired looking,The location is great, The staff are amazing, nothing is too much for them,Towels and such are very clean and changed regulary, but again I think it very mean to have to pay for a sunbed by the pool or in the garden,considering what the charge you in the first place to stay there. Location is second to none,Everything you would want is in the area,straight out the gate and you are on the beach. "

"Booked 8 nights, paid extra to book a view, when we got there we didnt like the apt, so upgraded to another, with a better view, paid nearly half as much again. Staff very nice,everyone very helpful,towels changed every 2 days and sheets every 4. Aircondition didnt work,complained and they fixed it,but it was the same.a sewage smell most days in apt.no one knows why? breakfast very nice,fab views after the upgrade,just too expensive, sun loungers 2.50euro a day, thought that was bad, but beach sunbeds belonging to the hotel 4.50euro a day. felt we paid enough money to warrent a sunbed by the pool free, seems a bit mean.a electric kettle cost 35euro for week, thought that was mean too."

"Stayed for 3 nights at the Sol Timor in May and couldn't believe how close it was to the beach and to the marina. The hotel is basic and the reception staff vary in their moods, but thats Spanish for you. Ate breakfast one morning and i was absolutely fine and I am fussy. Didnt make any use of the pool area but it looked absolutely fab and great for children."

Before you book Sol Timor Apts you should know the following:
"There is NO air-conditioning. The showers are worst we ever experienced. There was no kettle in the apt. you had to rent one. we had to pay to use the car park which was part of the complex. The apts are dated and not comfortable. We have two small kids and were put on the 9th floor where the wall on the balcony is not to high. Very Dangerous for small kids. The lifts are very small we just about fitted our double buggie in it, good job it was a three wheeler otherwise it would not have fitted. We were mostly at the baby pool which was not maintained the whole week we were there it was full of sand a small pebbles. We would go back to Tormolinous but would never stay in Sol Timor Apts again."

"This is located in Montemar area of Torremolinos. The hotel is great for kids - has a Flintstones theme. It is a little bit dated decor wise however not scruffy just more traditional. We went self catering and love the surrounding areas - in particular Carihuela. It is 5 minutes easy walk to Benalmadena port. This area - all along Carhuela and Montemar is all flat along the coast and more traditional Spanish - however there is a few Irish bars outside the hotel and karaoke. Overall brilliant and I am going back in September. This hotel is a stones throw from beach - rooms are sea facing and it has lovely gardens. Gardens lead straight onto promenade."

"The apartment was basic and very dated although clean. Was appalled that you had to pay to sit by the pools, no free sunbeds, wasn't prepared to pay to sit in a hotel complex i had already paid for so we had sunbeds on the beach which is 1 min from the hotel. Hotel bar area got a little rowdy during the late afternoon / early evening as they have a happy hour and some people just don't know when they have had enough. Resort is nice but not fully open in Oct many bars and shops are shut. Marina area is fantastic especially at night when all lit up and its a lovely stroll along the promenade and you can get some bargains as most of the shops that are open have sales during October as the resort shuts. I will go back to belamadena but will not stop at the timorsol but at the aloha puerto next door which is a much more upmarket hotel and the pool area is spotless, quiet and the apartments are nice and modern and the sunbeds are free and there is little difference in the price"

"I stayed at the Timor Sol Hotel last summer and really enjoyed it, it is right on the beach which itself has lovely clean sand, a variety of watersports activities and lots of little souvenir shops. The hotel is only 5mins walk away from Benalmadena Harbour (which has been vastly improved), 5-10mins walk from the 24 hour Square and is situated on Montemar (a road full of pubs, restaurants and shops) the hotel itself has an hairdressers, laundrette, supermarket and gift shop. The food is ok and the general facilities are good. It has 2 large pools and plenty of sunbathing space. The location of this hotel is its main selling point your no more than 10 minutes walk away from anywhere you'll need to go, if you do want to go further afield 2 minutes walk thereâs a bus that runs from Malaga right down to Marbella stopping in every town."
