Lovely hotel in beautiful gardens and right on the beach. Friendly and helpful staff, food excellent although pricey. Lovely room. Tip if you book direct on their website and they give you the option to upgrade at the hotel, if available, for a reduced rate take it. We didnt and the upgrade was 60 euros per night for sea view...

We stayed in this hotel one week in March and choose it because of the heated swimming Pool which is a rarity in Marbella at this time of the year. First the positive points: about the hotel itself, we have only praises: beautiful, large rooms. Large marble bathrooms with double sinks, separate toilets, separate shower and bath. Impeccable service, utterly... More

The Kempinski Hotel Bahia may not look like a five star hotel from its location on a busy main road into the uninspiring town of Estepona, itself a throwback to the days of the bargain package break venue to the Costa del Sol, but rest assured that it most certainly is. Our group came out of season when the wind... More

A colleague and I were here in December of 2013. We stayed for a week. We had business in Gibraltar and didn't want to stay there, so after researching hotels online, we took a chance and stayed at the Kempinski. We both loved it! My room overlooked the back of the hotel so I had a view of the gardens... More

Stayed for 8 days in feb. Lovely buildings and staff were great. Had some issues with noise as they are upgrading rooms. However they moved us twice. Reception could not understand why we would not accept a room with drilling noise. Reception staff need to be more customer friendly and understand customer needs. Once we got settled it was a...

. Lunch in the Alminar restaurant in the Kempinski. What could be nicer? That's what I thought. Starched tablecloths, attentive waiters, and surely exquisite food, beautifully presented?
