4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have had three very good holidays here. In 2007 the place was rated 5 Star Gran-Luxe. Last year we observed a few bumps and bruises but just about scraping 5 star standard. Another year`s wear and tear has left a large number of relatively small maintenance items needing attention, nothing major but enough to take the shine off the... More

It is a perfectly functional hotel, and it does everything you would expect from a resort/spa on the Costa del Sol. But, it does nothing beyond that. It is also worth noting that the beach isn't very good, so it really is a swimming pool resort. There are lots of positive elements. The rooms were large and the shower excellent.... More

My friend and I spent 3 wonderful days in your hotel, last weekend. From start to finish the experience was wonderful, to the glass of champagne on arrival, to our stunning room overlooking the sea. The cocktails at the pool and the breakfast and lunch were very good, the prawns were to die for!! A fantastic location and hotel and... More

My partner and I enjoyed our recent stay the hotel is well appointed - clean with lovely pools. It is a short scenic coastal walk into Estepona and close enough to shops and a few restaurants. Room was big and the bathroom huge also nice and comfy. I only have a few minor gripes - I would have liked quilts... More

Food excellent, great choice and freshly cooked. The staff are exceptional from the minute you check in. Very clean and tidy. Hotel is right on the beach - we had the all inclusive option and was worth it as it is a little isolated. Try and hire a car if you can but avoid RECORD car hire at Malaga airport.... More

This hotel is on a service road parallel to the main A7 coast road just outside Estepona. Although it is a busy dual carriageway, there is no traffic noise because the rooms are on the sea-facing side of the hotel. The small gardens are immaculately kept, and through a secure gate take you to the seaside footpath and the beach.... More
