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

Food is amazing. They don't save the good stuff for dinner - steak, tuna steak and chorizo sausage for lunch, cooked in front of me! So bad on the all inclusive alcohol. Ran out of vodka and beer, only one (very nice) member of staff and did not make us 8 Piña Colada's it was too many. Hopefully better today

On the plus side : Spanish style hotel, good reception desk, very friendly staff, spacy rooms, 3 pools (1 inside). On min side : bad airco, noisy ventilator in rooms, airco in conference room is disaster. Price quality food is low. No ventilation in bathroom and toilet. 130 Eur for room with seaview and breakfast is ok, 180 EUR is... More

Having now visited this hotel on three separate occasions, I find myself as impressed with it as I was on the first occasion. I have visited twice in early July, and have recently returned from a late August visit. I was concerned that having previously visited outside of school holiday times, that the hotel would be too busy and it... More
