Value for money in this hotel is the main positive by far. We were there for a week in June, and we're looking for a cheap week in the Sun. Reception staff were excellent on arrival, however staff thereafter were a bit hit and miss. Service was good, but slow across majority of the hotel at either meals or bars,... More

I went with my Mum for a weeks AI break June 15th. The Hotel itself was very clean and the rooms nice and big. The food was good and plenty of choice, lots of Fresh Fish . The hotel is mainly setup for the Germans and French. The Germans are very very rude they don't believe in queuing and just... More

We spent 5-nights here on an all-inclusive (AI) basis and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are friendly and efficient, the selection of food in the buffet-style restaurant is very good and the rooms are large, comfortable and clean. This was my 4th or 5th visit to the Playabella, which means they're doing things in the right way. In addition... More

Firstly, the weather was superb so that had no impact on the review. Don't be fooled into thinking this hotel is in Estepona town, which is gorgeous. The town is approx 9-10km away and you cannot walk there as there is no promenade and the beach is too rocky. The bus to Estepona or Marbella is cheap and easy to... More
