The fresh fish ( sea bass and sea bream) baked in sea salt and the fresh grilled calamar were outstanding. The wines were good and reasonably priced. The service... More

Although this hotel is a drive away from Estepona we found it a great place to relax and enjoy a short break. The hotel is spacious and clean with modern facilities. The rooms are well equipped, some with a large bath also a walk In shower. We were allocated a room overlooking the car park which wasn't to our taste.... More
