On the edge of Estepona , you get a great private beach, great views from the reception area and most of the restaurants, excellent but subtle service in a quiet way. Very clean and comfortable rooms. The spa is impressive, reasonably priced and very professional. Not suitable if one wants to be near shops and doesn't want to rent a... More

Originally I booked 3 nights but I ended up staying 5 nights. Spacious rooms good food very pleasant location few yards from the beach. Is ideal if your are looking for a relaxing and peaceful hotel, if you are looking for a night life this is not the place to stay .

We stayed here on a rainy weekend in January 2014. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and the room was wonderful. It overlooked the pool and sea and in better weather would have been perfect. Despite the weather we had a great time and would recommend this hotel. We will certainly return another time.
