3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed as a group of 5 adults for 4 nights. The hotel has many of the features of 4-5 star hotels but falls some way short in some important areas in our opinion. The hotel has many good points including: - very helpful reception staff who appear from nowhere to help whenever there is a risk of a queue... More

This Hotel is a taxi ride of around 5-10 minutes to Estepona. It is actually situated on a main road out of town with very little else around it.(burgerking and Aldi oh and a nudist beach next door) Something which we were unaware of when we booked. Taxi costs around 8 euros each way and more later in evening so... More

I am an Au Pair living in Cadiz, and we took a weekend break as a family to Estepona. Staying in this beautiful hotel was such a treat and I know that my family will come to stay again very soon. They have been twice before, and would recommend it to everybody! The staff are lovely, the location is perfect... More

Stayed 3 nights, family of 5 (3 kids 13, 15, 18) in 2 rooms. Rooms were large and nicely appointed. We had a terrace with a view of the Mediterranean. In general, it is a nice hotel on a private section of beach. It does appear that the resort is next to a clothing optional resort. There are lounge chairs... More

This is my 3rd time to this hotel and it simply doesn't disappoint. We have a fab room right next to the beach so the views were great, and our children were next door but one, so near, but not too near. We would have preferred adjoining rooms and did request this, but it didn't matter. Food as always is... More

This is an excellent hotel with great facilities. The staff on Reception were excellent, especially Gloria who helped us to book some trips. Just a note if you go with Jet 2 they do provide a rep, however the rep does not organise any trips which is a little annoying as we had expected this on a holiday of this... More

hotel was lovely, animation staff esp Manu were brilliant & kept my husband & son entertained all day. Room was huge even with a kids bed in it. Only issues were cheap toilet roll & some of the women bar staff rude but think that was lack of communication. Drinks weren't cheap either & I got served a cup of... More

This is a perfectly nice 3-4 star family package hotel, but it is NOT, absolutely categorically a 5 star hotel compared to real 5 star ones. I'm not saying it's not a nice family hotel but you could not possibly compare it with any decent international 5 star hotel, even our Jet2 Rep admitted she had never actually stayed at... More

I believe that spending 15 days in the hotel allows me to provide a fair opinion about the hotel. I will start by the facilities, the swimming pool is big and well maintained, I like how they manage the use of sunbeds and towels where residence need to hand a card to the towel keeper and get it back when...
