3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Just returned home from my weeks holiday here. Excellent service by reception and lovely huge rooms. Food was lovely, although mostly fish dishes there were a few other choices. I wasn't happy about the entertainment, mostly just a singer and poor kids disco. We went out in the evening to the town which was only up the road from the... More

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at this hotel. We stayed on a B&B basis. Upon arrival as we were staying with a baby were upgraded to a Junior suite, which was huge! We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the garden area and had amazing views out over the med. I would advise though that if... More

We stayed in the Gran Hotel Elba for a week and had a fantastic time. All staff were attentive and friendly and made our stay very welcome. The hotel had lots of facilities and the buffet caters for every need including show cooking of the meat and fish. Pepe, Alejandro and Fernando were the most attentive of staff helping poolside...

Lovely clean, family friendly hotel. The staff were very kind and wonderful with the children. The swimming pool was ideal for my 4 and 6 year old as it had a huge area which they could both swim and stand up in with a separate baby shallow pool too!!! Plus right on the edge of the beach with a lovely... More

This hotel was fantastic & facilities were excellent. Would come back in a heartbeat. Great for families. We were only bed & breakfast, but the buffet catered for every taste & need. Only thing we struggled with trying to pay for drinks & meals, as the hotel caters mainly for all inclusive so in most cases they don't take cash... More

Overall a very disappointing experience at this hotel, It certainly wasn't Five Star. Thought the location was not the best and indeed needed to use taxis if you wanted to go into Estepona itself. This was needed as the entertainment was on the whole pretty poor. Seeming to cater for young children every night up till 11ish. No adult space... More

My husband, daughter & I spent a week at the Gran Hotel Elba we found all the staff very helpful from our arrival to our leaving & the hotel immaculately clean. This was our first visit to a 5* hotel in Spain & must admit we found a couple of little niggles but these didn't spoil our holiday at all.... More

We received a great welcome - a really good impression on arrival and pink fizz too! We were struck by the heat and humidity and the foyer/reception area was suffering from a lack of functional air con. This was also an issue within the corridors of the hotel. The room we had was really big, clean and had a fantastic... More

Decided on a nightcap, to find the reception bar open till 01:00. semi-relaxed, went back to room, a cold supper had been prepared and laid out for us on the table. Nice touch. A good nights...
