Nice large room with comfortable bed. Nice sea view. But room carpet was very dirty and room smelled badly of cigarette smoke even though it was for no smoking. Noisy outside at night because of gangs hanging out by the stair-walkway located next to hotel and leads from the beach to the top at the city. Noisy in the morning as the hotel is going through major renovations.

"Nice hotel close to the beach and local amenities"
Family friendly hotel, restaurant on site, the time of year we went was January just got back from a 2 day birthday break and was happy with the location. A 20 minute stroll and your are in the town area, plenty of shops and restaurants.
Would return. Didn't go in the pool as it was not heated but time of year so I expected that.

Although showing its age in areas, La Barracuda is clean and tidy, including spacious rooms with a large restaurant area, along with professional friendly staff willing to assist guests if able to do so.
Priced within the economy/mid range which matches its facilities, location and requirements for travelling guests either solo or family.

This was a basic hotel with basic facilities but excellent for the price.
Yes the rooms were basic but the shower was hot, the room clean and free wifi for all guests.
Perfect for a weekend winter break.
Very much in the centre of town for the bars and restaurants.

To be upfront, this hotel is not a luxury hotel! It is very inexpensive, and the accommodation is basic. The hotel room contained a double bed, bedding, a mini fridge, personal safe box (for an extra fee), small flat screen TV and air conditioning unit.
The reception staff are friendly and speak English, although to varying degrees of proficiency and were always helpful. The rooms, while dated, were cleaned every day.
Breakfast buffet is included, and contains both standard English breakfast and continental breakfast. They do have a la carte dining in the evening, but we didn't try this as there was so much to choose from outside - why would you want to eat in your hotel?
The wi-fi only works in the reception area, and the small seating area on the first floor - but this generally wasn't a problem for us.
Whilst the hotel looks a bit tired and dated, it is certainly cheerful and very well located to enjoy the sea front. There is a supermarket a few doors up on the same street, and ATMs a few doors further than that. There is a small swimming pool in the front garden that is well maintained.
If you just want somewhere to rest your head and don't want to pay the earth, then I couldn't recommend this hotel enough. If you want more luxury and amenities from your hotel, then you'd best look elsewhere.
I'll be back!

There is more than meets the stereotype to this Anglo-centric seaside resort. While most of Torremolinos is a brash high-rise heaven for fun-loving Brits, the low-rise western part is patronised by the Spanish and has a very different character. Soft golden sands stretch either side of town and there is a huge choice of entertainments by day and night. Aquapark is a white-knuckle water world; Tivoli World is the region’s major theme park.
