Reviewed 5 March 2017

This Hotel is a bit out of the way but if you want a quiet relaxing break with no fighting for a lounger and clean rooms and friendly staff you won't go far wrong. Tip, choose All inclusive as your a bit away from the shops. My husband and I came here Sept 16. I didn't realise it was as...

Just returned from Iberostar & it was great. Here's all the good and not so good bits. Location, great, away from the busier Marbella but only 10 min drive if you want some action, so the beach was really quiet! However this comes with disadvantages as I'll explain too... Check in, was fast and pleasant. Room was nice but would...

Hello. My family is staying at the hotel. My family (2 adults + 1 child) arrived on 13/05/2017.

Top on that, today - 16/05/2017 - is my farther's BirthDay....

Spent a pleasant enough week here. Checked out today. Hotel was booked for us by a family member so hadn't done prior research. Hotel location is isolated. For me it's fine as I like lying on the beach all day. But if you get a poor weather day or fancy a wander then you are a bit stuck. There's no...

We had a room to prepare for a wedding nearby. The management was incredibly arrogant and unfriendly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome! You will have a fantastic holiday here! The IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol beach hotel in Estepona, Malaga, has everything you need to enjoy an unbeatable getaway. El Saladillo beach is just a few steps away. The kids can pretend they’re pirates in the pool and our massage therapists will be in the spa, preparing oils for your next session. These are just a few reasons why our all-inclusive hotel in Malaga is one of the best hotels in which to spend a few relaxing days. Want to hear the others? True relaxation. As well as having the beach right in front of you, this Costa del Sol hotel offers a range of options, from charming rooms for uninterrupted sleep to the most luxurious suites with private pools. You can go for a dip without needing to leave your room. Water everywhere. Not just one, or two, or even three options. You can swim in over 20 bathing areas and pools at this hotel in Malaga! With or without loungers, covered or in the open air, to share or just for you, with waterfalls or without, and even with water slides for the adventurous types to enjoy. Delight your taste buds. Could anything be better than enjoying your favourite dish while on holiday? Yes! Watching our chefs prepare it before your eyes during a show cooking session. What’s more, our restaurants serve the best Spanish and international cuisine, plus typical Andalusian dishes for you to enjoy. A whole array of activities. Whatever your kids’ ages, they won’t want to leave the Miniclub. This hotel is perfect for a trip with the kids. They can become true flamenco artists in our dance classes, practise their checkmates on the giant chessboard or hunt for hidden treasure in a game of pirates. Mamma Mia. An ABBA tribute performance at the IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol! And much more: Flamenco dance, acrobatics performances, magic shows, live music, and more. Because the entertainment at this Estepona hotel is for you too – not just the kids. Be pampered. Relax with an oriental massage, soothe your body in the sauna or submerge yourself in our water circuit. The SPA Sensations at the IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol offers a whole world of sensations in an 800-m² space where you can relax and pamper yourself like never before. Cross the straits in half an hour. During your holiday, why not take the opportunity to visit Tangier? You’re only 14 km from the coast of Africa - that’s half an hour away by ferry. Explore the galleries of the bazaars, surround yourself with colour and the scent of the spices. ... more   less
