“Quiet perfectly fine adult only hotel”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Visited in the spring of 2014.

Hotel is located just of the main coastal road, without having any noise from it.
Located just outside Marbella in Estepona, a quiet coastal town.

The rooms are standard size with a small balcony. Bathroom only has a tub - I personally prefer a separate shower. Cleanliness was as expected.

Staff is very friendly, both at reception, restaurant, bar and room service.

Breakfast in the weekends is elaborate, with fresh fruit, pastry, pancakes, cereals, cold meats and cheeses.

Pool is magnificent, you can actually do laps in it and there's a convenient pool bar. Spa area is very well maintaned as well.

Got a double room @ 100 Euros per night. Worth going back at that price point.

All in all happy with my stay. The only negative thing I can say is that you have to pay extra to use the parking, although there is plenty of parking space outside. And the location is not great if you think you are near the sea.

Just back from a long weekend stay at the barcelo estepona hotel being a regular visitor to the banus area we thought we would try it out and we weren't disappointed.
The hotels appearance is a very modern and welcoming we had booked a superior room with its own private sun terrace this room also boasted a separate reception area and as this room was located at the very end of the corridor no passing footfall meant you we're never disturbed.
We booked on a bed and breakfast option and the breakfast was adequate but not extensive if won't a huge selection then I would suggest this is not the place for you. We had travelled to this location in a car which leads me onto parking don't park in the hotel car park as if will be 15 euro a day we parked on the adjacent street which has no restrictions and plentiful. If you sang to explore the area then a car is a must as otherwise location of hotel will not be for you. However if you want a taxi into banus a fate should be no more than 17 euro
My overall perspective of the hotel is that I would go back as it doesn't attract the party set and you can have a good nights sleep
Value for money 10/10
Location 6/10
Cleanliness 10/10
Food choice 5/10

Poor location - close to a freeway - you have to cross it to get to the beach (ca.10 min by car). In the middle of nowhere, there is nothing interesting in the immediate surroundings. Building is quite old and needs refurbisment. Weak choice for breakfast, very few fresh fruits or vegetables.

And what was annoying - Barcelo quality manager send me mails in Russian all the time. I explained I am not Russian - but id has not helped.

Si! Si! Si! Is what I have to say about my eight-night stay at this centrally located Costa del Sol hotel. If you can get past the ‘70’s décor (the hotel really needs a major face-lift) you will be in for a fabulous and peaceful stay. Starting from the front-desk reception check-in staff who will do everything to please you, on to Jorge at the restaurant (thank-you for the soft classical music which created a beautiful and stress-less atmosphere) and his staff in the kitchen who not only prepare 5-star buffets and menu specialties daily, but will also make almost anything off the menu to please you and accommodate your (vegetarian) needs, to the Spa with over 2,000 square meters on two floors making it impossible for you (and especially your spouse) not to relax, be massaged, get a facial, or just unwind,…..ALL of this at incredibly competitive and reasonable prices rarely found in Europe. Oh yes, the outdoor pool is wonderful as well. We cannot wait to return and invite our visiting guests here.

We stayed here for 3 nights, the room was large, specious and well designed. Comfy beds, air con, tv (news channels only), lovely and clean modern bathroom, a bath (hurrah) and a nice balcony facing the pool. Breakfast was well stocked with everything you need from fresh fruits to full english in beautiful surroundings. We dined at the restaurant and apart from ordering a steak which turned out to a fish steak the food was all in all fairly good. The pool area is beautiful, although trying to get a drink at the bar was a bit faffy since you had to ring reception everytime, for staff to come down and serve you. I had a massage in the beautiful and stunning spa area, with several different water areas, a double height pool area, pling plong music, aquatic tanks, chill out areas which was very relaxing. The staff here as always with Barcelo hotels we're attentive and friendly, a credit to the company. However the downside is that the hotel is miles away from everywhere, Esteponte is 16 euros by cab, Marbella 26 and the airport 100 each way, its all adds up. There are no restaurants or bars in the hotel vicinity. The hotel itself is great, however it is isolated and your taxi fare bill will be nearly the same as the hotel bill. Wi-fi is limited and you had to put a code in every 5 mins which is found annoying in the end.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool!

Stayed for two nights in may 2014. Modern, clean and nice room with a big double bed. We also had a big balcony with evening sun.The air-condition did not work very well so we had to sleep with the balcony door opened. The breakfast was very nice with almost everything you could need. Even the pool area was nice. Adults only which we appreciated. We also visited the spa and it was amazing. I definitely recommend a stay at this hotel.
