Stayed one week at Finca Cortesin. This is a really great hotel. The architecture is great, a beautiful palace. Hotel interior and rooms are very nice and tasteful ( we loved the bathroom with the big tub) . Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great (sometimes a bit chaotic) but all products are from an excellent quality (what... More

We met friends for lunch at the beach club of this hotel which is set on a picturesque rugged coastline half an hour or so from Gibralter and 45 minutes from Marbella. We didn't see the rooms but a family member with very high standards was staying there and said it is "out of this world". The sun beds are... More

Wow, what a hotel and we stayed 4 nights here and fell in love. The rooms are gorgeous particularly the bathrooms with the most amazing showers. We loved the beach club which you can reserve loungers at the day before to ensure when you turn up at 12.30 there is one for you! We went with our 2 teenage girls... More

My family and I spent the day here recently and had a wonderful time. Great facilities, excellent service and a wonderful lunch. Good changing rooms, lounge service for drinks and the restaurant is world class. Not too crowded. A perfect day. You can't really use the beach from the club that easily, but the pool is amazing and enormous and... More

I visited this hotel with my 11 year old son out of school holidays. The interior design of the hotel is beautiful. The food is delicious. I would not say the staff are overly warm and fuzzy. I don't think it is just a Spanish thing as I have just returned from 2 weeks at the Abama where the staff... More

Refined, luxurious accommodation and immaculately manicured and beautifully landscaped gardens, two large heated outdoor swimming pools with seawater, another indoor swimming pool and a large pool at the Beach Club.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of the Spanish Costa del Sol between Marbella and Sotogrande, overlooking the warm Mediterranean there is a place where nature gently vanishes into the deep blue sea. A private community that offers members a personal sanctuary in an environment not found anywhere else. For those seeking an emotional connection to where they live this is arguably the last great property available by the Mediterranean. This impressive resort is located in one of the most peaceful and upcoming areas of the Mediterranean coast in the municipality of the picturesque village of Casares, just 1.500m from the beach and within easy access, by motorway, to the international airports of Málaga and Gibraltar. Set on a 215-hectare estate, 150 of which is designated green belt area, the development centres around 5 extensive areas: Hotel, Golf, Spa and Sports Club, Beach Club and Residential Area. Hotel Finca Cortesin is designed to enchant every one of the senses. The hotel's fresh but grand design is inspired by traditional Andalusian architecture and gives every area a big, bright and luxuriously spacious feel that is so rare in Europe. Built around two principle courtyards with palatial proportions, the hotel has 67 large, luminous and exquisitely designed suites with lofty 4m high ceilings ranging from 50 to 200m². With 23.000 m2 of manicured gardens, luxurious spa, 3 pools, tennis and paddle courts, impressive 6.000 m2 beach club, exquisite cuisine and an ambiance of tranquility, elegance and refinement, it is a destination that invites you to return. Come discover why Finca Cortesin has been named the 'Best National Resort' in the country by Conde Nast Traveller magazine. ... more   less
