This pleasant hotel is located directly in Torremolinos' tourist centre. The beautiful sandy Carihuela Beach and the town centre with its many shops, boutiques, bars and nightclubs are within metres of the hotel and are ideal for the ones who like to explore. The establishment was built in 1968 and completely renovated in 1991. In their leisure time, guests can work on their tan at the solarium or rest and relax on a lounger directly under the sun. The more active guests can play billiards. There is a seasonally variable entertainment programme available. All the rooms have been tastefully furnished and offer a lounge area and an en-suite bathroom. They are equipped with cosy beds and all the essential amenities to make each stay the most pleasant one.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Clean, basic, friendly, central

Review by Karen S Estepa, Spain

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our break. Centrally located, 4 minutes walk from station. Nearby shops and restaurants, plus a nice walk to beach...

Son stayed in a separate room and he was happy with shower and air con! Only downside is not easy to find as down alley way and not signposted from pedestrian precinct. Find Café Roma, 1 minutes walk from there. We parked in Municipal car park and it was only 30+ euros, reasonable! Would stay again ☺

Review by N542TFannw

You might as well pay for a sunbed on the beach thats how basic it is. Never ever have I had to pay extra to buy the remote control fot the Tv from reception !!! No english channels which reception do not tell you on puchase Bathroom looked into opposite bathroom To cap it all anything you asked from reception reply was “Impossible” Pay a little more is my advice

Prison lock down.

Review by catherinelloyd143 Swansea, United Kingdom

Booked a cheeky week for a little sun, ended up locked down in what felt like a prison cell. We arrived on the 10th of March so looking forward to a break, on arrival we were greeted by not the most pleasant of staff but maybe he was having a bad day. Up to our room to walk into the most claustrophobic room ever, one window that looked straight into to opposite room, thought put up with if for location...

Went up for evening meal, what I've seen on tv prison food is better!! The staff upstairs not much happier than them downstairs, just a bad day maybe!!! After the most uncomfortable night on beds that creaked every little movement up for breakfast. This was ona new level!! I asked for fresh rolls because we couldn't get the knife in the ones that were out to be told no eat what was there!!! Then comes the big lockdown, not their fault!! They became even more rude to the point of frightening to death an older person and telling her pack her bag and go to the airport even though she had only just got there. We then had to share the sparse amount of food with all the other guests so if you weren't there early you wouldn't have a lot left and wven though it wasn't the best if was food. From start to finish this hotel was a let down, hopefully when things return to normal and they need guests their customer service will improve.

Review by Sarah G Cumnock, United Kingdom

Returned from third visit to kristal hotel awaiting suitable flights for september october next year . Husband has walking difficulties.location of hotel is ideal and it is spotless there is an army of cleaning staff who are very helpful especially when my husband had a bout of illness . The reception staff are efficiant and helpful as are the dining room staff .The solarium on the roof is a sun trap and there is a shower for cooling down the views are amazing .our room had a balcony with table and chairs...

The bathroom newly refurbished bath overhead shower toilet and bidet room was serviced every day .There are two lifts Dining room and lounge are on the top floor we stayed half board always something to suit for hot dishes and lovely salad bar jelly ice cream yogurt and fruit for desert The hotel is being revamped throughout this does not impinge on rest of the hotel Air conditioning is free as is Wifi .Hotel is around 50 metres from rail station and abt 100 metres from local bus station we used the local bus to go to Rhonda for a day trip and train to Fuengirola Benalmadena and malaga . Prices very cheap . Area is flat around hotel and lift down to sea level is near and runs all day 50 cents each way you can also walk down. Plenty of shops and supermarket nearby loads of lovely resturants. For price and location Kristal hotel is great value for money and the beach is clean and beautiful .
