An all-inclusive resort hotel, Royal Costa has a sea-facing position in northern Torremolinos. It's set in lush, tropical gardens, between the beach and mountains.
All rooms at the Royal Costa are air-conditioned and feature private balconies. The private bathrooms have hairdryers, while other amenities include satellite TV.
The hotel has an outdoor pool set within the gardens, where there is also a sun terrace with loungers. An entertainment programme is offered in the evenings.
The hotel's main restaurant provides buffet meals with a wide range of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's also a poolside bar serving drinks and snacks.
Royal Costa is just a five-minute walk from Los Alamos station. From there, trains run to both Malaga Airport and central Torremolinos in under 10 minutes.
While they may be fairly basic, the rooms are well-maintained, and guests praise the housekeeping team for keeping the place spick and span. Plus, the air-conditioning is refreshing and cool, so you'll enjoy a comfortable stay.
Convenient location close to transport links.
It's an easy stroll down to the beach from the hotel, and its location between Malaga Airport and the centre of Torremolinos makes getting around the area easy. You can either hop on a train or jump in a taxi and be in Torremolinos within minutes.
Fun and entertaining atmosphere.
Torremolinos attracts pleasure-seekers and beach-lovers, and the Royal Costa provides the kind of laid-back, fun environment that you'll love if you're up for a party. There's music by the pool and a whole host of evening entertainment.
The food doesn't meet expectations.
While the all-inclusive package may seem like a good-value idea, many guests have complained that the food is pretty low-quality, to the extent that they ended up eating elsewhere. You may want to opt for the room-only rate and dine out.
The pool is worryingly deep.
Starting at a depth of 1.5 metres in the shallow end, the pool leaves many parents anxious about their children, and is only really suitable for confident swimmers. This makes the pool area less relaxing than it should be.
The Wi-Fi is limited to public areas.
There's no Wi-Fi accessibility in the guest rooms, so you'll have to traipse down to the lobby if you want to get online. Some guests have said that even here, it's a bit erratic, so don't count on lots of online time.
