This town is known as a residential community for people who work in nearby Malaga and its environs. For this reason, there aren't many Alhaurin de la Torre hotels that we would highly recommend. In fact, there are only two.
One is at the heart of town - the Hostal Al Patio, along Calle de los Alamos. The other one is Cortijo Chico, a classy hotel-cum-restaurant along Avenida de las Américas, very near the Malaga Airport. While there are other places to stay in Alhaurin de la Torre, we recommend you look elsewhere if, for some reason, you don't decide to book in either of the two hotels we just mentioned.
Basically, we suggest you stay in Malaga, Torremolinos, or Benalmádena, where you can find nice, relaxing hotels in strategic locations. What we have below is our own short selection of hotels, picked not only for their proximity to Alhaurin de la Torre but also for their management's superb attention to quality.
