We are a small family run hotel with 10 rooms. We have double rooms and family rooms. We are located only 900 meters away from the sea side so we´re close to everything, yet in a surprisingly quiet area.

Items Wanted or For Sale/Rent

For Sale or Trade: Ceiling Fan For Sale $40 or Trade for installation of a bigger fan that has already been purchased. Buyer to collect. Size is approximately 90 cm tip to tip and about 40 cm from ceiling to bottom of light. Location is in Puerto de la Torre, Malaga – Contact Debi: debidobdo at yahoo dot com


If you asked for a recommendation and are pleased with the work from the suggested provider be sure to share your experience in the Recommendations Section!

Pool Pump Not Starting: When a pool pump fails to start, check that the fan at the rear of the pump is turning freely. If so then it is likely to be the capacitor which is located under the cover where you connect the power. This is cheap to replace. Make sure power is off before doing it. Regards, Chris gladstone.chris @ gmail.com

Pump Advice: On top of your pump is a small box, open it and inside you will find electronic components. One of these will be tubular, almost certainly grey with two wires coming out of it. It will be connected to a terminal block. They vary in size from about 80mm long downwards and about 30mm diameter or less. This is the Start/run condenser. It will have it’s rating on it, remove it and take it to your local ferretera for comparison. If they don’t have they will know where to get. I am fairly certain this will be your problem simple to do and less than 10€. Mine was 7€

Air Con: Just had the car aircon re-gassed by Chris Partington (649307966) and would highly recommend him. Great service, reasonable rates and aircon now cooling properly which is great in this weather.
Best Regards, Bill Ogilvie, Torrox Costa, 635137617
