This is a beautiful resort hotel with two outdoor and one indoor swimming pools by the ocean. Staff is super nice. They made sure they took care of us. Great place to relax. They have several restaurants. Kind of pricy. Nightly entertainment was ok...they could do better.

The Elba is deserved of it's five stars and doesn't come with some of the snootiness that can come with 5 star hotels in Europe. The hotel is well maintained and very clean all round. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Classically finished but with up to date furniture not lacking in quality. Beds are comfortable and every room... More

Food very good, as was room with wonderful sea view. Staff members mostly friendly and helpful, one or two not so. Service was not what I would call 5 star (inconsistent is the best way to describe) - cocktail made by Antonio excellent but same cocktail made by another staff member undrinkable, repairs to fridge and fan needed to be...

We stayed at this hotel for 12 nights all inclusive (8 of us with 4 children) we loved every moment, the highlight being the food, it is of a very high standard with top quality local produce, including great jamon iberico (Serrano) Fresh local langoustines and crab, even lobster on two nights! They cook a variety of fish or meats... More

We travelled to this hotel with our grown-up family. The staff were exceptionally friendly and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms were very clean and housekeeping staff were great - two housekeepers per room cleaning glass and removing every finger print. Although we stayed on an all inclusive basis we felt the need to upgrade on... More

There is no doubt that this is a beautiful hotel with lovely staff ,but if you like a walk out in the afternoon or evening, it 's a choice of round the hotel or over the motorway flyover to Aldi. A taxi to the port will set you back 10 euros each way (unless you are too miserable to tip).... More

We stayed for a week. Absolutely a lovey hotel with a great staff, very friendly and welcoming. Great food and services. A good choice for a family holiday. We really didn't want to come back when our holiday finished. Thanks to all the staff. Certainly recommend it.

The reasons we chose to stay in this hotel were that is purports to be a 5 star hote, it was going to be quiet and that we could simply relax and not worry about spending anything as we could buy an all inclusive package. I believe that these reasons were fulfilled (although perhaps the hotel may have been more... More

Just got back. Hotel is good, staff are very friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. Evening entertainment not so good. Kids evening entertainment a bit annoying as it is directly under the bar area, so if you fancy a pre dinner drink it is spoilt by loud kiddy music. This hotel is no where near Estepona central and there is... More
