Spent a long weekend here with my wife and enjoyed every minute of the stay. We booked all inclusive which was a real bonus. I don't quite understand other reviewers when they slate the staff. We could not have found any of them more welcoming, friendly and helpful. The staff are one of the best things about the hotel, I... More

If you want a semi-private beach, the sound of the sea when you lie in bed and a complex that kids (age 10 and 9) love, this is the place. A walk along the coast line to estepona and the harbour was fun, with a taxi back for a few euros. We all quite liked the fact that there are... More

We took our two girls on a fully-inclusive holiday here for 10 days, staying in a family suite. From our arrival we were so impressed. The hotel is stunning, room was very spacious and luxurious with lovely view out over the Med. The buffet restaurant was exceptional with a very high standard and varied, fresh menu and expert, friendly staff.... More

I am currently at the Gran Hotel Elba and I feel compelled to respond to the previous review which in my opinion and many others who are here is totally incorrect. This place is paradise. I am currently on day 7 of a 10 night stay at the Elba and I cannot fault any part of the hotel. It is... More

We booked a two week family stay at the Hotel Gran Elba Estepona resort. We had two rooms which opened, with double doors on to the large garden area, and the hotel states it's a 5 star hotel. We think it is far from that. First off, arriving in the middle of the night, we arrived to find we did... More

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
