Take a little trip outside the bustling heart of Torremolinos and you'll find some excellent places to stay. The Ecuador Park Apartments is a cosy little complex situated in a quieter part of the city – on the Benalmadena side of Torremolinos. Being out of the city means that you don't have to pay city prices; it also means that you get a different perspective on Torremolinos. The Ecuador Park Apartments are close to the marina – and to a host of excellent shops, bars and restaurants. There are some real finds here – and they'll all feel that bit more exclusive than the same-old city centre haunts.
Stay at the Ecuador Park Apartments and you can still dip in and out of the city with ease, or enjoy the quieter environs of the Benalmadena district. The beach is never far away, while the picturesque marina is really worth a visit too. Another one of the great advantages to staying at the Ecuador Park Apartments is the excellent swimming pool. It really is a beautiful pool and it's surrounded by a sun terrace and features a poolside bar. You can quite easily spend several hours by the pool, taking a dip, enjoying the sun… Or you can sit and just take it easy with a long, cool drink at the bar.
The poolside bar really is the hub. Whether you're swimming or not, it's a great place to get-together with other holidaymakers. The bar serves snacks throughout the day, so you really can make a bit of a day of it. Or if you fancy a change of scene, La Carihuela Beach is just 100 metres away. Accommodation at the Ecuador Park Apartments comprises fully-fitted studio apartments. Each comes with its own kitchen, combined living room/bedroom, and private bathroom. Additional features include satellite TV, safe boxes (with deposit and for a small fee) and telephone. One bedroom apartments with separate living rooms are also available at a supplement, and can accommodate up to four people.
With so much activity centred around the pool, there's a real community feeling at the Ecuador Park Apartments that you won't find at many hotels. And that makes it a great choice for anyone who really enjoys a truly sociable holiday.
Ideally situated in a quiet area on the Benalmadena side of Torremolinos. A wide selection of shops, bars, restaurants & supermarket as well as the Marina are all within easy walking distance.
This was a packaged holiday through Jet2, my mum and dad's Christmas present. I had booked a one-bedroom apartment with a walk-in shower.
There are steps going down into the apartments, however, there is a lift which takes you down to ground level ( see pic ), this was ideal as my mum struggles with stairs...
Be aware that if you have mobility issues request a ground floor apartment, as there are no lifts to the upper levels.
At the reception, we had a friendly greeting and an upgrade to a two-bed apartment which was a lovely surprise, this was on the ground level but had a few steps up to it which was manageable.
The apartment was huge, spotlessly clean, kitchen area with microwave, hob, kettle, toaster, pots and pans, washing machine, iron, etc, it was very well equipped. There were a twin room and a double room with a tv. The beds were super comfy and we all slept really well. The walk-in shower was a blessing and easy for mum and dad. Clean towels every day and the apartment cleaned. The maids were out around the pool area everyday mopping and keeping it spotless.
The apartments are one road back from the promenade, go right to Benalmadena marina about 10 mins walk, turn left for Torremolinos a bit further about 20 mins, this is able-bodied walking time. There are plenty of places to eat locally, we went to Kellys on three occasions ( see my review). We also hired a car locally which was good value for money. Lidl is just up the road.
The one thing that could of spoilt this holiday happened on our first day, be aware of local gypsies, who try and give you flowers and ask for a penny! So glad I was there to protect my elderly parents who almost had their wallet and purse taken by these callous thieves.
Apart from that incident, we had a perfect week, weather was great for January, and thank you Ecuador for the upgrade it was very much appreciated, we wouldn't hesitate to return.
Stayed here for a weekend in January 5 of us great location only 2 minutes walk to beach restaurants and bars we stayed in a one bedroom apartment and friends stayed in a studio bed were comfy and had a huge balcony facing pool also a small balcony in the bedroom there are plenty bars next to the hotel on the street to the left of hotel which are reasonably cheap most do happy hour 4-6 €2 a pint of beer at the top of the street to the right is the main street where there is loads of shops bars restaurants about 15 mins walk into belamedena marina which is very nice overall its a cheap nice little place to stay would defo return
Took my sister away for the weekend for a birthday treat and this is where we stayed on a Jet2holidays package. The coach transfer dumped us at a bus stop and if it wasn’t for the other family that was on the transfer staying in these apt’s before we wouldn’t have had a clue where the hotel was! Check-in was fast and friendly. There is a wheelchair lift but no ramp to get cases down to reception...
The apartment was tidy but absolutely reeked of paint, so much so they we came with bad coughs and sore throats. It was far too cold to leave the windows/doors open to help air it. There seemed to be a few returning customers which I think is because the apartments are really cheap. I don’t know if it was the terrible weather or the overwhelming smell of paint that has brought me to dislike this hotel but it was an ok base and would probably be better in warmer weather. A short walk from the beach, shops & restaurants but as it was February not much was open.
Stayed here few times now going back march 2020. As a solo traveller I feel safe and secure that's why I love these appartments spotless. 2 mins walk to beach bars and restaurants...
15 mins to marina which has nice shops and eateries.
Could not believe how great these apartments were. Had been put on 3rd Floor, but as soon as we explained that I used a mobility scooter we were told that we could move to the Ground Floor in the morning. By 10.30am we were in a one bedroom on the Ground floor, here we can put my mobility scooter in the lift and take it to charge in the apartment...
Very central for shops, beach and Careula. Reception staff and cleaning staff were absolutely brilliant. Will definitely be back.
