About the Owner

Maria Carmen and Graham Pyle have owned the Playamar, Torremolinos apartment since 2005. We live in Enfield UK, although we have relatives in Torremolinos, who look after the apartment for us. We have enjoyed family holidays in Torremolinos nearly every year since we bought the apartment and our two sons now sometimes use the apartment for their own family holidays.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time, and couldn't have wished for a better location. The apartment was excellent and the gardens were beautiful to sit in, all in all we had a very relaxing holiday. We had never been to Torremolinos before but would definitely return in the future. Angela 8.6.13

We stayed in the apartment over Christmas and were delighted with it. It was well equipped with everything we needed for a very comfortable weeks stay. The apartment is well located right by the beach and within easy walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants. We would certainly recommend it. " Linda & Peter, Derby. 8.1.13

On arrival we found the apartment spotlessly clean, tidy, well equipped and well furnished. The beds were very comfortable. The satellite TV was great for us as it had a full selection of UK channels, as well as numerous Spanish, German, French ones. An essential for us during a long stay. R Shaw 13.12.12

Great location, immaculate apartment

  • 4 of 5

Loved it here. Me and my partner wanted a nice week away to somewhere not to busy and not to quiet so this was perfect for location. Apartment was well located for the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. 10-15 mins walk into the town of Torremolinos and a short stroll into Carihuela and on towards Benalmadena and the fantastic Marina. Immaculate and well equipped. Will definitely be staying again. Thank you :)

This apartment was clean and tidy

  • 4 of 5

This apartment had the added bonus of supplying towels and chairs to take on the beach. Fantastic location you only need to cross the road to the wonderful beach. As it is in a gated apartment block you feel quite secure. I will be returning here in the future.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a few days between Christmas and new year. It was perfect for our needs and great value for money. Only a 10 min taxi journey from Malaga airport, located just across the road from the beach and beautiful promenade.

Many restaurants and bars a few mins walk away although many were not open given the time of year. Just a short walk into torremolins old town to find many more.

Apartment and surrounding areas were spotlessly clean, everything was as described on the website.

Air conditioning ( hot) was much appreciated for the cooler December evenings.

Graham was very helpful and prompt in his replies, keen to ensure that we were happy with everything.

We will no doubt return in the future and I would definitely recommend the apartment to family and friends.

Property description accurate, location perfect. We were not disappointed with the apartment, facilities or location. Restaurants all around, just a walk across the road to the nearest. Large supermarket less than 5 minutes away. The property, surrounding gardens and pool beautifully maintained.

Would not recommend to anyone with walking difficulties, 3rd floor, no lift. Shinanegan's Irish bar for great English breakfast.

The description is exactly what it says!

It is in a great location,very clean and compact apartment that is inside imaculate well kept locked gated gardens.

You step out of the front gate on to the main strip with the lovely clean beach across the road.

Or you can go out the back gate by the pool and within a 3 minute walk there is a good size supermarket that sells all you need.

The town is approx a 10 - 15min walk away where there is the metro and lots more shops and restaurants.

But we prefer along the strip with a very nice walk to the harbour stopping off to have a drink in the many bars/restaurants along the way.

(Prices will be less if you go to any of them just off the sea front)

The owner was very helpful and friendly as while we were there the AC did not work, we made 1 phone call and she came straight around with a portable fan and within 2 days we had a brand new AC fitted!

Thank you, we had a lovely weeks holiday!

From the Owner

We got to know Torremolinos when Maria Carmen's sister went to work there and she introduced us to 'Playamar', which is a vibrant area both during the day and at night. Apart from the lovely beaches, there are many bars, shops and restaurants of all types, many of which serve seafood specialities, typical of this part of the coast. Malaga airport is only about 15 minutes drive away.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 7 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Parador de Malaga Golf at 5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Torremolinos (town) at 1 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Various restaurants at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Playamar at 100 Metres Car: not necessary


'La Carihuela', 'Bajondillo', 'Playamar' and 'Los Alamos' make up the four beach zones of the sea front promenade of Torremolinos. Each beach zone, is famous for its different specialities. The apartment is located in Playamar which is renowned for its sporting and entertainment activities including volleyball and football tournaments and an open air cinema in the summer.

Eating Out & Night Life

In the Playamar area there are numerous restaurants, some of which provide live music as well as delicious food and just a few minutes stroll along the seafront promenade is the Los Alamos area, which is the go-to place for 'Nightlife' .


There are flights to Malaga from most main UK airports. The airport is located west of the city of Malaga, approx 5km (about 12 minutes drive) to the apartment.

Torremolinos town centre 10mins walk or a short bus ride and Malaga 12kms for that big shopping trip! The Costa Del Sol offers much to see and do, from water-parks including Aquapark in Torremolinos bowling and Tivoli World Theme Park to local 'fiestas' and places of historical interest such as Granada 130km and Sevilla 220km.
