Cabello Hotel is a budget option, but there’s nothing budget about its sea-front location close to one of Torremolinos’ best beaches and the stylish Benalmadena Marina in its neighbouring resort on the famous Costa del Sol.
This family-owned hotel is brilliant value and brilliantly placed. The one-star rating is only about the relative lack of facilities – there’s no swimming pool and no balconies – but if you want an affordable and traditional Spanish place to stay then Cabello Hotel could well be just what you’re looking for.
The rooms are either twins or single rooms, and accommodation is on a bed-and-breakfast basis. Twin rooms can sleep up to three. All rooms have a private bathroom, telephone, television, air conditioning and you can rent out the in-room safe. Reception is on-call 24-hours-a-day if you need anything.
The location is brilliant. La Carihuela is Torremolinos’ old fishing village area. There’s no better place to see the traditional Spanish side of this famously international resort. Just a short walk to the west is Benalmadena, the neighbouring resort with its busy marina for boat trips and dining which is packed with family-friendly activities.
La Carihuela Beach is a short stroll away from your hotel. It’s well-kept and relatively quiet for Torremolinos – though you can still pack in a day’s wind surfing or body boarding if you want to.
The La Carihuela area has an excellent selection of restaurants, and if sea food’s your thing you’ll be in heaven here. Benalmadena lies on one side, and neighbouring you the other way is the Bandojillo area, with the Old Town just inland.
There’s an aquarium, marine park, Tivoli Fun Park, and animal reserve nearby in Benalmadena, and Malaga is an easy day trip – well worth it for one of Spain’s most exciting and historic cities.
Cabello Hotel Costa is good, basic accommodation, well-run and fantastically located to get the best out of Torremolinos.
Guests to the Cabello Hotel can relax on marvellous beaches and explore countless attractions such as Tivoli Fun Park, Aquapark, Selwo Aquarium and Zoo, Crocodile Farm and the Picasso Museum.
