Torremolinos is a municipality in Andalusia, southern Spain, west of Málaga. A poor fishing village before the growth in tourism began in the late 1950s, Torremolinos was the first of the Costa del Sol resorts to be developed and is still the most popular in the region.
We have stayed at Torremolinos hotels twice (Hotel Parasol Garden Review in Torremolinos, Spain and Hotel Zen Airport Torremolinos, Spain) during our latest trip to the region of Andalucia.
Now, when planning our next travels to Spain I decided to look again on hotel offers in Spain, this time looking to travel with a little baby girl. It's interesting to observe that family friendly hotels are in fact more expensive than hotels for couples.
In today's article - top 10 family friendly hotels in Spain's Torremolinos.
