We just got back from an 8 day holiday staying at the Gran Hotel Elba, I can only say if you get the opportunity to stay there TAKE IT, the staff and standard of the hotel totally warrants the 5 star rating. Yes you can find niggles but these are mainly personnel preferences such as I was no keen on... More

This is a lovely hotel set in beautiful grounds. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is very clean. It has amazing views . The rooms would benefit from having tea making facilities in them. The big down fall of the hotel is the location. It is a 10 minute taxi ride into Estepona with a poor bus... More

My family and I ( children aged 7 & 5 ) stayed for 7 nights all inclusive, which was absolutely worth every penny. I could not fault anything, from the warm welcome we received on arrival to the hugs we got when we left. We had a beautiful room over looking the sea. The rooms were always immaculately cleaned and... More

Came with my daughter and granddaughter in Late August. Our second time at the Elba and we found it to be everything it described itself to be and more. I don't understand the negative reviews complaining about the location - surely they could have checked this up before they arrived? Not difficult to have a quick look on google maps.... More

This hotel has the potential to be amazing. It has a large and gracious lobby, good sized rooms with amazing bathrooms, a good spa, and nice pools. But, much of the infrastructure is on the older side, eating options are limited if you don't go all-inclusive, and service is poor. My husband and I had a reasonable holiday there (we... More

Dear James T , I’m sorry to learn that you didn’t enjoy your holiday with us and that there were so many issues which escalated in a completely negative impression. This is obviously not our goal and I’m sorry we didn’t create the holiday you were expecting. Kind regards, Juan Manuel Galán General Manager More

We stayed here for a long weekend in early September 2014. The reception area is stunning and we were met with a cold glass of prosecco on arrival - a lovely touch. Our room was spacious and clean with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was amazing - double basin, big bath and shower and toilet area - definately 5 star.... More

We had a few issues with our stay. The first one was the flies around the pool, which got to be very annoying the hotter things got. Having complained to the management we received no real answers to the problem, they just kept blaming the heat. I've stayed in and around Estapona before with no problems. So I can't believe...

I went to this hotel as a girly break with 4 other friends. We had a blast! We booked an all inclusive stay, and it really was great value for money! The food was great, the pool was great (even if the poolside entertainer was a bit over enthusiastic at times), and the spa was good. If you want an... More

Location is not the best on the main road to the west of Estepona. 6-10 euro taxi ride from the port. We stayed in a suite overlooking the upper garden with views of the sea which was lovely. Always found the hotel to be clean and tidy and have stayed here many times and will be again. All inclusive is... More
