Riu Costa del Sol
The Riu Costa del Sol's a blend of two beside-the-beach hotels.
The Riu Costa del Sol is a beach-facing hotel with a glossy feel. You're well taken care of if the kids are in tow – they've got a splash playground and a packed activity timetable to work through.
There’s a long sandy beach just across the road, which you can reach in less than a minute’s walk. Torremolinos’ lively centre is a little further on, and a cab gets you there in five.

Amazing RIU as usual
The hotel itself is less than 10 minutes away from Malaga Airport, and is situated right on the promenade with some amazing views of Torremalinos. The area however has very little to do in, so will require you to visit other areas. There is both a bus stop and taxi rank directly opposite the hotel, and is just €5 into Benalmadina or €20 into the center of Malaga. Checking in was a pleasureable experience. The staff were welcoming, fountain of knowledge and did everything with a smile. They couldn't do enough for you then or throughout the entire stay. Rooms were very spacious, usual amenities including TV, mini fridge, hair dryer etc. Decorated to a very high standard, with some of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Bathroom was huge with twin sink and a lovely big walk in shower. Only dissapointment for the rooms were the air conditioning hadnt been turned on, and although they advertise British TV, there were just 8 channels, 7 of which were news channels. They also do not offer a tea and coffee facilities, this is due to them being AI 24 hours a day. Food, although slightly repetitive, was perfectly cooked and tasted beautiful. There wasn't a single meal time I was stuck for choice. My only gripe, is please cook normal sausages. Pretty please! The restaurant it self is very spacious, comfortable, and although it's a busy hotel does not have the busy feeling in the restaurant. It's very calm, and again the staff cant do enough for you. Bar staff also very good, never waited longer than a minute at the bar with plenty of choice of local sports and cocktails too. The only down point of the whole stay is the entertainment. The team although try their best, are hounded by poor props, poor sound system, poor costumes etc.. Which just makes the entertainment very bland and samey. Despite everything we are currently going through, the hotel staff were amazing, so professional, reassuring and just perfect. Every single one of them had a smile on their face throughout. More
We'll definitely be back
Booked as a surprise birthday treat for my husband, we arrived 2 days before Spain went into lockdown. Hotel was immaculate, lovely pools ( a bit cool but it was only March) great room in block 2 on 4th floor, views of sea, beach, promenade and pool. Fridge with water obtained from the bars I took a kettle, got coffee, sugar from restaurant without a problem. Despite the very difficult situation and the staff preparing to close the hotel less than a month after opening, everyone was smiling, professional and happy to help in any way possible. More
Returned a week ago from this brilliant hotel, considering the situation ' Lockdown' for the last 4 days of our 14 day holiday, the staff were all amazing always had a smile, very pleasant under a very difficult time, will definitely return in the future . A very very big thankyou to Lorinda tui rep, for giving us full information daily and always being there when we needed her, hope she is there when we return she really was amazing hope all the staff are safe, hopefully see you soon.More
Excellent stay. Top Hotel!
Not a fan of all inclusive usually but this Hotel has it spot on! Hotel is spotless and very modern. Food is really good, nice and hot and plenty of variety (I am a fussy eater but every mealtime I was spoilt for choice). Bars never too busy as plenty of staff. Smirnoff vodka available as part of all inclusive so just ask. Large bottles of water available from bar for your room. Rooms are very spacious with a lovely big shower and there is also a fridge. Entertainment is actually very good. The team work endlessly during the day rehearsing for the evening show and every performance was great. I stopped doing the whole entertainment thing years ago but went along as we were on holiday with other people, and was pleasantly surprised. Pool towels are provided. Hotel directly on the prom in front of the beach. A slightly quiet area but it’s a lovely walk along the prom and there are some shops and bars on the doorstep. Tui rep was lovely and very helpful. I don’t want to put anything negative at all about this hotel, but I have to mention the sour faced receptionist. I didn’t catch his name, however he was curt and unhelpful when I asked about a late check out and asked for him to print our boarding cards. Such a shame for one person to taint such a great hotel. It didn’t spoil my stay though.More
