We stayed for a week in late October 2016 with 3 kids. The rooms were comfortable and clean and we got the interconnecting rooms that we requested. The food was OK, although pretty same-y - but the kids enjoyed the buffet at breakfast and on the nights we went there. But, overall, we thought that it looked a little tired...

We've just returned from and over night stay in the Elba. It was my husband's birthday and I wanted to book a 1 night stay somewhere relatively close by to where we live (about 20mins away). We've stayed in lots of hotels along the coast and we'd highly recommend this one. The service was great, which sometimes is a downfall...

Relaxing spa, great indoor and outdoor pools for all seasons. Plentiful breakfast available indoors on on the terrace. Relaxing. Long, tricky walk into the centre of Estapona - car hire essential for this reason.

This hotel seems to have all you need to spend several lazy days in a resort. Several restaurants, indoor and outdoor pool, a spa, a sea promenade and a beach. We mostly used it as a base for exploring the Costa del Sol, but felt very welcome coming back every evening. Plenty of parking and easy access. Our two connecting...

The hotel was an excellent base for our golf trip to the Estepona area (20 golfers). Check-in was very efficient, all paper work was ready for us and staff helpful.

First impressions count and the complimentary bubbles on arrival were certainly a good first impression!
