“Excellent Golf trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Just spent 3 nights here and 3 rounds of golf. The hotel is gorgeous, spotless and the staff friendly and helpful. Food was great, but not a huge variety, and no restaurants nearby, so your stuck here for the food really. Car hire is recommended as the hotel is not close to any shops, sights, restaurants etc,15 minute drive to the harbour/beach.

Buffet breakfast and dinner was fine, usual salads, fresh fruits, cheese, cold meats, soup, and 2 or 3 hot options - reccommend the fish! The food at the golf club restaurant is good quality and ideal for a snack after your round!

The pool area is lovely and a real sun trap, we were sunbathing even in January! The rooms were gorgeous, large bathroom two comfy queen size beds and a veranda. A bit of a squeeze in a queen size bed for two, though you can move them together.The spa and indoor pool looked lovely but does cost extra and we didn't really have time to use it. The outdoor pool is not heated, though I did have a 3 second dip!

As adversised, the golf is on site, and the courses are picturesque and in lovely condition. There are 3 loops of 9 holes, with Los Pinos being far superior - so I advise that you include this course in each round. We hired a buggy the first day, with was a bit of a waste of time as you have to keep to the paths and can'ttake them on the fairway at all. There are trolleys for hire which I did the second two rounds which was much better. The greens were like lightening, undulating and the pin positions were very tricky on each hole, so it was very difficult to score even for low handicappers! This did get a little frustrating! Courses were not busy, so there was no waiting or being pushed.

All in all lovely hotel and ideal for couples or groupson a golf break. We went on from here to Hotel Gran Elba, Estepona and then Gadalmina, Marbella - both of which were very different! see later reviews!

Stayed here while at a wedding in SOTO. Never been to this side of the resort before as we are usually beside the beach area. The entrance and lobby area are nice with a smart bar. The pool area is also good with a nice spa and gym to use.

Its right on a golf course so a golfers paradise - not much else to do if you are not a golfer as the beach is a good drive away on the other side of the motorway.

The rooms were so so and they need an upgrade along with the bathrooms- would of been very luxurious when initially designed.

All in all a very good hotel in an area with not many options on Hotels.

Definitely better than the NH Sotogrande.

A good integration into the landscape, good housing, good roads, located right next to the golf course.
A good gym and a spa reasonable. Indoor and outdoor pools.
Great breakfast service.
It is close to excellent golf courses: Valderrama, Sotogrande Real, San Roque.

The hotel area is excellent- (I was not a golf tourist), amazing pool area with plenty of sunbeds. Breakfast buffée is great and service is flawless!

The room is nice but more 3,5- 4 star than 5-star. Definitely clean, spacious enough and offers all basic comforts you would expect but the 5-star features are lacking. Restaurant menu is definitely not 5-star and the food is actually quite bad. The hotel is far off from any center so nothing else is available which keeps the options down as well... The environment is very scenic and beautiful in every way!

I'm sure this hotel was excellent 10 years ago but needs to step up a bit in order to be 5-star...

Stayed overnight for a wedding, rooms are big and clean. The hotel provides you with all the toiletries you could possibly need. Spa area was lovely. Restaurant food is medioca and overpriced in my opinion for the quality you get. Overall enjoyable stay but not the best value for money.

We stayed for 10 nights in early July in 2 interconnecting rooms overlooking Los Pinos golf course. We had a great time. Breakfast is run by Manolo, a legend, and it is delicious. Each day we then enjoyed the Cucurucho beach club, which is owned by the hotel, followed by golf in the afternoon. Thoroughly enjoyable. Recommend a hire car.

For golf with its three 9 hole courses plus a superb practice area plus the other amenities makes this a great spot to concentrate on before exploring the local area, in particular the Marina. A wonderful later afternoon overlooking the golf course slipping gracefully below and away to the Meditteranean sat with a glass of cool wine on the terrace fitted the bill after a round of golf, whilst the ladies were pampered in the spa.

Great food, good sized rooms and a good base from which to esplore not only the local area but Gibraltar too.

Recommended.
