This was our first visit to Malaga and to Estepona, however the hotel was not up to the standards I was expecting, especially as I had previously stayed at many five star hotels around the world. The food in the buffet restaurants were not great at all, however the food in the A la Carte restaurants was delicious. The entertainment...

The hotel was absolutely beautiful - immaculately clean and so relaxing, The rooms were spacious and comfortable, We had a sea view but didn't spend much time on our balcony as it didn't get much sun. We were on the second floor but overlooking the garden area at the far side of the hotel. Although we didn't have any spa...

I stayed overnight as I had been invited for the wedding. I had lunch at the hotel, lunch consisted of a buffet but there was something for everyone, the amount of food to choose from was incredible, not cheap but worthwhile. The facilities were of a high standard and the staff was very helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious. Finally...

Made to feel special from start to finish...cava on arrival nice touch. Lots of little corners to hideaway and relax in. Food lovely.

The rating of 'poor' may seem a little harsh but if you are expecting a 5* hotel it fits beautifully. This is definitely not a 5* listed hotel - if I had booked a 3* and arrived here I would have been satisfied. No concierge, reception staff who are incapable of carrying out a request, a pool area reminiscent of...

I stayed at this hotel as I have friends living in the area. I enjoyed my recent 8 nights stay. I booked on the web with a well-known British supermarket chain, inclusive of flights and B&B in a double sea view room for single use. The room was well appointed with a good level of air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, and...

This hotel was relatively moderately priced for a 5 star hotel which should have rang alarm bells really but I thought as schools had not yet broken up this made it more affordable. Sometimes you read reviews on hotels on Trip Advisor and luck out, this time I did not. This place is 1. On a busy dual carriageway 2....

Stayed at the Hotel for a friends wedding. The setting was beautiful over-looking the beach and the sunset. The Hotel was decorated beautifully and the food was of a good standard.
