Very modern corridors leading to the rooms which upon entering seemed very underwhelming and minimalistic although the bed was huge and comfortable. The dining room was...

We stayed in a suite, so it was very spacious with 3 balconies and a nice view, but there was a lack of decent furniture. However, the breakfast was very nice and we had the buffet dinner,...

Nice clean hotel with all the amenities. Ok food and friendly staff in a rundown ghost town in remote spain. Not a tourist location with empty black beaches. Air conditioning extremely poor ( didn't work and very noisy) Informed receptionist who informed me it was adequate !! Very poor sleep as a result . Shame really !

This hotel was amazing, our room was stunning clean and very well equipped. The cocktails in the piano bar were awesome and very reasonably priced. The food was good but could do with some improvement. Wish we had a longer stay to enjoy the facilities. Will definately be returning soon would highly recommend.

Elba Motril is a very neat and well kept hotel on the beach road. Has a good view of the Sea and the Beach if you have a sea facing room. Rooms are very comfortable. Helpful and pleasant staff take good care of you. Breakfast was very good.
