We arrived late at night (midnight) and got a warm welcome from Reception and glass of Cava which was well received. The bar closes at 1am and All inclusive closes at midnight, but we were still served as we got there late. We had a Prestige Room looking out over the ocean - great views and could see Gibraltar.

Just got back from an amazing and relaxing time at Elba Estepona. From the outset staff were friendly and there to help us with anything we wanted; from organising transfers to just chatting to make sure we were happy with the our stay. I was lucky enough to be given an upgrade to the junior suite for my birthday. A... More

We stayed for a 10 day family holiday last summer. The hotel is beautiful, overlooking the sea, with lovely high quality Andalusian decor throughout. We received a warm welcome on our arrival, greeted with cava and juice for the children. Our room was very nice, elegant decor and comfortable beds, with a large balcony and lovely views. (standard room). The... More

I spent a week at this hotel and can not fault the buildings decor or staff. The location is good and the room was a junior suite with two double beds and a lovely balcony. The breakfast was brilliant with a buffet and options for ordering eggs and extras. My only problem was the air conditioning. It is not effective... More

I stayed here with my husband and our 5 year old daughter for 10 days on AI board basis. The hotel is kept very clean, I saw one dead bug the whole time. The choice of food on the buffet is pretty varied, we feasted (gorged) on king prawns, crab and lobster on almost alternate evenings. The bars are very... More

We have just left this hotel after our honeymoon stay. The hotel is lovely. Rooms cleaned daily. The hotel works round you. Don't want to be disturb until 7pm, they will wait until you would like your room cleaned. Managers and hotel staff by the dozen. Always someone wanting to help. I was unwell due to a jellyfish sting and... More

We visited for ten days in June. Hotel and staff etc. were excellent, top floor room with a massive terrace, really nice stay. Unfortunately, the hotel position is so isolated, from alternative facilities and beaches etc., car hire or lots of taxi rides are required. We did find the hotel rediculously expensive, a meal for two (without drinks) being around... More
