Iberostar Malaga Playa

The Iberostar Malaga Playa is a big hit with families as it combines luxurious interiors with an action-packed pool scene and beachfront location.

Outside, the pool takes centre stage. It’s flanked by terraces dotted with palms and cypress trees. Just a few steps away, there’s a pool bar with a terrace, and for little ones, there’s a splash park with a trio of slides and a tipping bucket.

The buffet restaurant takes care of meals. There’s a spread of local and international dishes, so even the fussiest eaters are taken care of. Children can enjoy the kids’ club every day, while parents can stretch out at a Pilates class or make a splash at the aqua gym.

Overview of Torrox

If you’re looking for a relaxing holiday to the Costa del Sol, Torrox is a great location. It’s a quiet and beautiful resort that’s away from the energy of nearby Torremolinos and Marbella, but close enough that they’re both accessible for day trips.

There’s an authentic Spanish feel in the resort, so when you leave the Iberostar Malaga Playa, you’ll be greeted by tapas bars, spas and historic, winding streets. On the coast, the sands are warm and welcoming.

Things to do in Torrox

The Iberostar Malaga Playa has secured a spot right on the seafront in Torrox. The beaches at the front stretch for more than nine kilometres, so you’ll never struggle to find space. Most of them also have Blue Flag awards, so they’re incredibly clean and stocked with facilities.

You’ll also have the chance to explore historic attractions like the El Faro Roman site and the old Arab fortress. There’s also the ruins of a watchtower, which was built more than 600 years ago.

Whether you want to take a hike, a trip through history or just lounge on the beach, Torrox has something for you.
