Beautifully set in its own gardens on Torremolinos’ seafront promenade, Sol Timor Apartments offer a comfortable and good-value family self-catering option with lots of resort-style extras in one of the Costa del Sol’s most popular resorts.
There are 338 apartments in the Sol Timor Apartments, with studio, one- and two-bedroom flats to choose from. They’re well-equipped, with a full kitchen set up, satellite TV, and cooling tiles on the floors for when the southern Spanish sun really ups the heat.
The complex offers a lot of extras for guests. If you want to get out and about and meet your fellow travellers, there are good quality communal facilities. When the thought of cooking your own dinner is too much, you can check out one of four dining options. Tuck in at the buffet restaurant, enjoy sea views in the beach restaurant, keep your sun lounger safe while dining by the pool, or grab a snack in the bar.
Swimming is just one of the items on a very healthy activities list that puts a high priority on keeping the kids happy. Watery fun extends out to sea with canoeing and wind surfing; on-shore you can play snooker, billiards, table tennis or tennis. Children can sign up for the Mini Club with a full team of professional staff hosting shows each evening.
You can enjoy yourself, safe in the knowledge that the practicalities of your stay are all covered. The reception desk is open and on call 24-hours-a-day. There’s a bureau de change and safety deposit boxes, while WiFi internet access is free in public areas. Also on-site you can shop at a supermarket, souvenir and jewellery stores, and get a personal brush up at the resort’s hairdresser.
You can also arrange tours to the Costa’s many attractions in the complex. Torremolinos is one of the most popular resorts on the southern Costa del Sol. Despite years of development there are still remnants of its original fishing-village character. The central town is a big and busy resort with lively nightlife in season, but has a gentler, more Spanish feeling in the still-warm winter months. A fantastic beach is definitely the centrepiece, while other attractions include the neighbouring fishing village of La Carihuela, the historic city of Malaga, or the big water park, Aqualand.

Southern Spain's answer to Benidorm, Torremolinos is a vast purpose-built holiday resort situated 10 miles (16km) west of Malaga, on the road to Marbella. Holidaymakers looking for a cultural experience will be disappointed, as Torremolinos, particularly in high season, is noisy and fast-paced, 24 hours a day. With six miles (10km) of wide, sandy beaches, lots of watersports, masses of bars and restaurants and an exhausting nightlife, the resort attracts tourists of all ages from all over Europe. There is a large gay scene, but the resort is equally popular with families and the inevitable 18 to 30 crowd.
Most holidaymakers come to Torremolinos to spend idle days on one of its beautiful beaches. The largest and most popular two are Playamar and Bajondillo, both offering safe swimming and all sorts of watersports. Bars and cafés along the promenade offer respite and refreshment away from the sun. The nearby water park is one of the best on the continent and is a great family day out. Visit www.aqualand.esfor more information. Popular excursions from the resort include a trip to El Ranchito, a wonderful show where horses and riders display their skill in a form of equestrian ballet, choreographed to music www.ranchito.comThe spectacular hilltop town of Ronda is also worth a visit for those wanting to escape the beach for a day.
The best places to eat out in the holiday resort of Torremolinos are Bar El Mojito, Nuevo Lanjaron, Frutos del Mar and Bodegas Quitapenas. Torremolinos is packed with restaurants catering for the tourist trade and menus, usually in a few languages, offer good staple dishes such as fish and chips, steak, pasta and schnitzel. However, some excellent Spanish restaurants are also around, particularly those serving tapas. The best seafood restaurants are in the fisherman's district of La Carihuela, which has been relatively undisturbed by high-rise hotels and has retained its Andalucian coastal charm. The upmarket harbour at Puerto Banus is only ten miles (16km) along the coast and is packed with good restaurants overlooking rows of expensive-looking yachts.
Holidaymakers should visit Kiss Bar, El Open Arms, Tinas Bar or The Viking in Torremolinos for a good time. The nighttime can be fairly intense, with dozens of bars and clubs catering for all tastes and persuasions. A good place to start the evening is in one of the tavernas in Calle San Miguel or in one of the cafés and restaurants that line the promenade. The clubs start to open at around 10pm; the Palladium disco being a good bet. The best selection of clubs is along Avda Palma de Mallorca. There is a big gay scene in Torremolinos centred on La Nogalera, where the clubs vary from the mainstream to drag bars. Exotic shows are a feature here and are popular with both the gay and straight visitors.
There is a great range of shops in Torremolinos ranging from international clothes stores to lots of small shops catering for holidaymakers. Good buys include the local jewellery, leather goods and the famous Spanish Lladro porcelain. For self-caterers, there is a good selection of corner shops and supermarkets stocking all the well-known international brands. Calle San Miguel is at the heart of the shopping centre; it is an attractive pedestrianised street, flanked by small shops and cafes and is a good place to sip sangria and people watch for those not interested in shopping. More extensive shopping can be found in Malaga.
Torremolinos is a sprawling purpose-built holiday resort; those expecting any cultural or architectural merit will be disappointed. Explore a few miles inland, however, and the real Spain can quickly be discovered. As with most large resorts Torremolinos is very commercial, tourists are regularly pestered by salesmen selling everything from trinkets to timeshare apartments. Be firm and don't trust anyone with scratch cards. Guests at some hotels have to climb lots of steps when returning from the beach - elderly people should check before booking, however in general the resort is easy to get around with an excellent bus and train system. The centre of Torremolinos is fairly run-down in places; the suburbs of Benalmadena and Fuengirola are cleaner, friendlier and cheaper.
