“First class luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is one of the best hotel/resorts I ever stayed in.
Had a long weekend with some friends at the Finca Cortesin and we all had a 3 day fantastic treat.
From the welcome at the reception, to the barman, the waiters in the restaurant and the staff in the spa – everybody was very committed and tried to meet all our wishes.
The rooms are great – we had the “small” ones on the second floor overlooking the mountains but they were both very large and quiet. The king size bed was really extra King size, the sofa group was comfortable, the 42´flat tv had all the international channels, lots of wardrobe space and the bathroom was large as well – not mentioned that the rooms had all expected amenities’.
The service was excellent and everybody at the always aimed for the best quality. The hotel was quite empty, but we didn’t fell or experienced any kind of lack in the service level. (one of the restaurants was closed for the season).
This is just a fantastic and great hotel without any downside.

Room Tip: All rooms are great - If you want a sea view it will cost more

We played golf on the course in mid-March. The weather was appalling but the hotel, course, staff and service were exemplary. I couldnt recommend Finca Cortesin more highly - it is one of the best establishments that I have visited in years. We didnt stay at the hotel, but had a quick nose around - it looked amazing. It's expensivem but you definitely get what you pay for.

There are hundreds of 5 star destinations around the globe, sometimes you believe there are only 5 star ratings available. If you want to find a truly 5 star + accomodation, visit Finca Cortesin. The hardware is unbeatable, the setting, the taste of the interiors absolutly phantastic. Yes, this is expensive, however you will be satisfied; you get what you paid for, this makes the diffrence.

Very friendly and helpfull staff, organizing of events (new years eve) splendid, great golf if exiting the hotel door - what else could you look for?

Room Tip: THe pool suite is very cute, however it realy makes sense to pay for it, if you can use the pool. So...

I am fortunate to stay in many luxury hotels around the world due to my work. I do not get to stay in many European resorts more so in Asia and Indian Ocean, however out of all the luxury European resorts I have had the pleasure to stay at, this is by far the best in Europe. The rooms are huge, with amazing views, everyone was so friendly but in a relaxed and subtle way. The bathroom was the biggest I have used with massive ceilings. I place I would recommend anyone who wants to just escape and relax but not too far from many other activities. WELL DONE

Room Tip: Suites overlooking the Med are amazing.

This resort is amazing, everything is perfect, from the furniture, to the service, the food, the spa, the room etc.
A real 5 star with the kindness and the high service required.
The golf course is the best I've played in in my entire life. Well done, wish you all the success you deserve!

My friends described this hotel as a ghost town and I see that another reviewer thought it creepy.. Personally I like the feeling that I'm the only guest around and the sense of peace and space was wonderfully tranquil- you could hear the birdsong rather than your fellow guests . I'm not a golfer, but I needn't have worried as the staff made me feel very welcome. The breakfast deserves a rating all on its own. I'm now converted to whipped yogurt and the truffle-scented ham was delicious. I had a room in the Moroccan courtyard on the ground floor, Room 11, i think, which had a private terrace and a view over a hedge of mountain peaks. I loved the spacious bedroom and the bathroom, great shower, separate from the bath. Penhaligons toiletries, scented with Blenheim Bouquet. At 6 Euros, the room service pot of tea came with delicious home made biscuits. I look forward to returning - it's a little retreat from the outside world.

The tour I was on somehow got conned into booking the group into this hotel. We were told that the hotel was busy and that reservations would be necessary for the restaurants. However, it did not appear busy and was, in fact, so empty that it was downright creepy. When I tried to use their adaptor plug to charge my laptop, I was rewarded with a shower of sparks and a slight electrical shock. The place is isolated so that anyone with a tour group is left with no other options than go with the group, even if the activities are not something in which you are interested. I ended up leaving after one night and returning to Madrid a day early. I have no interest in ever returning to this place.
