I’ve just returned from the Gran Elba Hotel Spa in Estapona after spending a week there. I did want a relatively restful week however, there would have been more life in a home for the elderly. The hotel is enormous, clean and all areas spacious. All staff were very helpful and polite whom we came into contact with. On arrival...

As you walk into the lobby, you can immediately see the sweep of the ocean beyond. Wow. That just blew me away! This is a plush hotel. The staff were a little a surly at breakfast but couldn't do enough for you at dinner. Our room was lovely with panoramic ocean views. Every morning after breakfast, we took a relaxed...

We stayed at the Gran Hotel Elba Estepona for a week at the end of October 2016 and had a lovely relaxing holiday.

We stayed for a week in late October 2016 with 3 kids. The rooms were comfortable and clean and we got the interconnecting rooms that we requested. The food was OK, although pretty same-y - but the kids enjoyed the buffet at breakfast and on the nights we went there. But, overall, we thought that it looked a little tired...

Relaxing spa, great indoor and outdoor pools for all seasons. Plentiful breakfast available indoors on on the terrace. Relaxing. Long, tricky walk into the centre of Estapona - car hire essential for this reason.
