I'd definitely get a taxi. Takes ten minutes and is between 20-25 euros.

Only you can decide what is best. Other alternatives are to catch the train from the airport to La Colina and walk but that is at least ten minutes, downhill though. You could get off the train at Los Alamos and catch the 123 or go on to Torremolinos and get a taxi from there but personally I would go with the suggestion in 1.

Taxi never a problem getting one.

Always plenty outside of arrivals.

You can precook/pre pay taxi with someone like skyscannerairporttransfers.

They are there to meet you.

Works out cheaper than off the rank.

The taxi will be the airport minimum as so close to the airport, which is 16 euros daytime and 20 euros after 10pm and week ends, add 1.05 for the three cases or 35 cents a case.

Taxi ride will take 10 minutes, huge rank outside T3 main door, you will be at the hotel before you have bought your train tickets.

Return taxi a lot cheaper as no airport add on, would guess 12 to 14 euros day time.

Yes its one of the last hotels as you leave Torremolinos for the airport, my son paid 14 euros from the grigo mar back to the airport last month, this should be a lot cheaper.

Considering the luggage you will be carrying definitely take a taxi. I paid 18 euros from airport to Bajondillo beach area in 2014. If you only had a carry on bag I would recommend the train which makes stops as far as Fuengirola. To Torremolinos from airport is about 2 euros as I remember it.

Train is 1.80 and the Bajondillo now less at 16 euros, plus 35 euros a case, return about 12 from the local rank, not called.
