Only stayed one night in Jr Suite - all you could ask for, brilliant. Huge bedroom and bathroom in three sub-rooms. Food was ridiculously expensive 40 euros a head for a canteen style self service without drinks.

Stayed here in September for 4 nights, the weather was sunny in the day with a slight chill in the evening. Would need a taxi to get into Estepona, we hired a car from Centrauno (would recommend this company). Breakfast was very busy and no one seemed to check if we'd paid for it or not. Seemed under staffed, but...

This is a lovely hotel, very spacious rooms, two showers two sinks plus a bath and separate dressing area. Staff very helpful, spa pool ok, but the treatment rooms (sauna, steam rooms) not hot enough for me. Ladies be warned you have to wear a swim hat. Breakfast ok, enough of the usual choice. The big downside for our trip...

We were there for 14 days on half board. Breakfasts were good, evening meals were average to very poor and so we ate out frequently and well. Not quite the idea! There are 71 TV channels, NOT ONE of which provided English language entertainment. Lots of news channels, Al Jazheera, Dubai TV etc, but not bothered about catering for Brits!...
