"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.
Hotel surrounded by high rise residential properties. I should imagine the pool area would be shade even at the height of Summer. Difficult to find parking even in January, hotel parking (self parking) at 13€ per day plus 20€ deposit for the key. Breakfast - Machine coffee and artificial orange juice. Overall a pleasant stay but I think the hotel star rating should be 3 stars.
The staff were lovely and because we were there during the off season, the hotel was quiet and relaxing. The buffet style food was varied enough and fine. The desserts in particular were nice. If you are a vegetarian you have very limited choices - but that's he case in all Spanish hotels, not just this one.
The outdoors were lovely with great pool side facilities. There were lots of cats in the area so if you like cats, it's great and there are lots to feed. If you're not a fan of cats, best stay indoor in the evening!!
The happy hour drinks were worth the trip downstairs in the evening - the entertainment however, sadly was not! Again, we were there during off season so our hopes weren't high.
The décor in the hotel is clean and serviceable - just very dates. The views from the balcony were lovely though and made the dated rooms liveable.
If you want to secure your belongings in the safe, they don't have electronic safes - you need to pay 5 euros a day to gain access and you have a large key that opens and closes the safe.
Overall a nice stay, but likely wouldn't return because the hotel rooms are really dated and desperately need refurbing.
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.

Hotel situated on the beach, very well located near the main attractions of the area of leisure, such as packages of …More
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.
