There is also a pool for the very young situated away from the main pool and an enclosed heated pool for colder days. There is also a beach adjacent to the...

Returned from a week there yesterday. Hotel staff were lovely, always willing, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was the nicest we've ever stayed in, Clean and well-maintained inside and out. Pool area and gardens were immaculate. We stayed on half board basis and found the food on offer to be good with a good selection...

Located out of noisy crowd of Marbella in cozier estepona. Rooms are classic, stylish and clean. Breakfast and half board are absolutely great with big variety of international and local dishes along with live cooking station. Swimming pools / saunas are of good condition and quality (sea water). Treatments however are rather average especially considering price. Staff is helpful and...

I can highly recommend this hotel. Not 5 star in UK terms but a great atmosphere all the same. All of the staff are exceptionally attentive and friendly Worth paying for the half board option - it's buffet style but the range and quality of the food is excellent Would definitely come back

The rooms in this hotel are probably the biggest I have stayed in Europe and we had a great view of Gibraltar, but I’m afraid that’s where the good points stop. The hotel sits next to the busy AP-7 road and has no pedestrian access either east or west from the hotel except along the beach which is a very...
