I spent one week staying at Hotel Caracas Playa with my wife in August 2014. We were rather disappointed overall with the hotel and would not agree that it should be rated as a 3 star hotel. Some of the particular things which disappointed us included: The photos of the hotel on its website and other sites are very misleading.... More

We chose this hotel as it is right on the edge of the town of Estepona in an excellent central, and parking was easy. We stayed here a month ago for two nights and we were pleased it wasn't more.

However, this year will be the last time we stay there because for reasons only known to themselves, the staff refused to take payment by credit card, and in fact demanded payment IN CASH, IN FULL ON ARRIVAL!

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night (12th October 2013). The hotel owners were friendly and welcoming and were happy to help with any requests (they also both speak English). The room was big and exceptionally clean, with a very comfortable bed and free WiFi. The bathroom was a good size with a powerful shower and... More
