I have read aweful comments and reviews of this hotel but I was surprised why. Okay, it is not a 5 stay, but honestly, those who are looking for exceptional quality should really look for it somewhere else and not for this price, the two things rarely come together! The rooms were tidy, the breakfast was average but good, the...

I went with a friend and the rooms were clean and tidy. We figured out after the first day that unless the keycard is inside the slot, none of the electricity will work. When I tried to recharge my phone while at breakfast, it didn't because I didn't have the keycard plugged in! We were half board, so breakfast and...

Despite what the majority of the reviews here say, this is NOT a bad hotel. It's located just off Calle Cauce, about 30 seconds walk from the main square of Torremolinos. When i arrived, the receptionist said my single room wasn't ready, but that they had a 3 bed room, which I could have for no extra cost. Excellent start!...

Reading reviews is the most important factor when booking a holiday, after reading the reviews about the kristal hotel i wasnt sure whether it would be a fab holiday or the holiday from hell, but in fact it was brilliant. The hotel is fairly basic, but the rooms are kept clean and tidy, and the staff were FANTASTIC, really helpful...

We read all the reviews before we booked, and reckoned it couldn't possibly be as bad as they said. Unfortunately we were wrong. At first we were delighted to have been allocated a room with a balcony, (as far as we could later make out) all the rooms with balconies are at the front of the hotel. The bedroom windows...

Me and a few friends stayed at the Kristal Hotel last week. We landed in Malaga Airport, got a Renfe train service from the airport for 1.50 euro. This took about 15mins to get to Torremolinos. Kristal hotel was literally 3-5 mins walk from the train station, therefore if you fit and healthy, no transfers really required. The rooms are...

Staff at the hotel were fantastic. If you want to sleep don't stay here it is used for schools parties and the noise level at night is horrendous. Buffet style breakfast and evening meal was very good but avoid the fish at night.
