Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

London, Canada14 contributions8 helpful votes
I would like to say, despite all the big talk from other hotels in the area, this small but very friendly and cute hotel is my favourite. I am from Florida in the U.S. and am used to staying at some very grand hotels but Encinar is just so cute and even more welcoming, I would advise anyone visiting Sotogrande to stay here. That's the good news. However, my rating is just for the hotel and not the area. Other than the great golf courses, there is nothing about Sotogrande that fits the descriptions you read about in the magazines or Google or the advertisements by the realtors. In fact much of what they say is untrue. In particular, although Hotel Encinar is peaceful, Sotogrande, in general is a very noisy place. I have stayed in the hills where building work, cranes and heavy vehicles cause a lot of unwanted noise, unbearable noise that seems to never stop. Much worse than that is in the port where my friends live. They have two houses they are trying to sell and cannot sell because of the continuous noise from the very loud machinery that is used by the gardeners who are relentless, starting at 8 every morning and going on and on all day, every day of the week. Sure they make it look pretty but it's not worth it, the noise never stops. My friends are fraught with stress due to this and the other noise from the private swimming pools all around the resort that are full of screaming children playing with inflatables. No one every does anything about it. The security is just 1 car that goes around but there is no security on foot. They are not able to take their young children even for a walk as most of the roads are built only for cars, there are no sidewalks, only drains or the road (where cars and motorcycles speed) to walk in. The summer in Sotogrande is unbearable now because they have booming, ear-piercing music from live concerts and DJ's that perform from midnight to 6am all through the summer. This place is anything but tranquil. The bars and restaurants are nothing special and there is nothing else to do but play golf. There are no places of interest. You can't get out anywhere without a car, there are no trains and barely a bus. Don't believe what you read about this place. Maybe sixty years ago it was OK but it's now become unbearable. All the people from Marbella descend in Sotogrande for the concerts then hundreds and hundreds of people walk around the beach and streets in the early hours drunk and looking revolting, doing things that make my stomach churn. I feel very sorry for all the property owners who thought they had made a good investment and are now driven from their homes by the downfall of this place. This year was the worst yet. I was talking to some business owners in the nearby village who have had to move away due to the influx of people and the unbelievable noise. Next year, I shall be staying in Malaga and driving down for the golf. I

This hotel has recently been refurbished and it is now very pleasant to stay here - comfortably four star. Breakfast is good - more than adequate selection of cold and hot food, fresh fruit, muesli, pastries etc etc. We stayed three nights for a golfing break. It is well located for all the top golf courses in the area and very near the Sotogrande port which has many good restaurants.

Lovely hotel and gardens. Breakfast had plenty of variety. Evening meal service was a disaster. Only one waiter on duty for the week we stayed. Hotel was busy due to Solheim Cup in the area. Didn't improve all week. This was a pity as it's a lovely hotel and fabulous friendly staff.

Lovely looking hotel, rooms are very modern. Staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the receptionists, arranged for a local company to bring us a rental car at a great price, pointed us in the direction of pretty much anything we asked for and spoke great English. Pool and seating very clean, didn’t struggle with beds atall. Would definitely return in September again as it was quiet.

Paris, France44 contributions57 helpful votes
We have stayed at this hotel a number of times in recent years. Despite the apparent need for a massive overhaul of the whole complex, we had always appreciated its location, the grounds and the lovely swimming pool. So we were thrilled to learn the much-awaited renovation had been finished earlier this year. And what a great job the owners have done. The hotel has been well and truly brought into the 21st century with its stylish neutral decor, timber floors, beautiful bathrooms and incredibly comfortable beds. Some very tiny things still need to be addressed in the rooms; there is no place as yet to put your shampoo, shower gel etc in the shower cubicle. Also the smoke detector alarms have incredibly visible flashing lights which at night, with the black out curtains can keep people awake as their reflection bounces off the ceiling. They just need to be relocated in the entry way or replaced with ones without such annoying lights. Slightly more important feedback .. the food at breakfast is perfectly fine but perhaps could be improved in terms of choice to reflect the brand new decor. And finally the service too. We just think this beautiful hotel now needs to be accompanied with a friendly, highly-responsive staff. The service has always been perfunctory over the years; nothing more, nothing less. We had put that down to the fact the hotel was clearly in need of a overhaul. Yet now that the hotel is really lovely, perhaps the time has come for a rethink about service. But hurrah, Sotogrande now has another beautiful hotel; it’s reasonably priced too so would highly recommend it.

Don’t expect much and you won’t be disappointed. Tired, dusty old place in need of repairs at the least and total makeover ideally. Sink was dirty, plug didn’t work it was badly worn and heavily siliconed into place. Dust on all the lampshades. The place was stuffy, too hot and too much air freshener in evidence. Could do better.

Good location for golfers. Friendly staff and nice lounches and lobby. Very personal decor in bathrooms. Ok buffet breakfast. We had booked a superior room, but got a standard. We had to complain three times before getting what we had ordered and paid. And there must be some serious moisture issues in the rooms. There was a very stuffy smell in the rooms and opening doors and windows did not help a lot. After getting back home we had to wash and air out all our clothes couple of times to get rid of the smell.

The hotel is very run down, the lower corridors and rooms smell of mold. We changed room directly and got a much nicer one on the second floor. The food in the restaurant .. well, if you stick to the simpler things, like a clubdandwich its ok, dont try anything else, its a disaster. The cleaning of the rooms are good but all around you can see dishes and bottels beeing put outside the rooms on the floor, not beeing collected for days, looks very bad seeing old food and glasses outside your and other peoples doors. Whats good? The breakfast! The only thing i missed were fresh vegetables, like cucumber, tomato and salad, other than that the breakfast was great! And the staff is great too, they do what they can with what thay have. Very nice staff all over, edpecially in the reception and the bar.

Very pleased with our room (split level as per main picture and nice patio). Not 5 stars as staffing levels were too low, 2 ladies trying to serve meals and man the bar, which was up a flight from the restaurant - not fair on them. All in all, very satisfied.

Nice hotel, good location in Sotogrande. But the rooms are very run down and needs a full renovation. The cleaning staff does not take the time to clean in detail. We stayed 6 nights and the sheets were not changed during our stay. Public areas are good, breakfast is well organized. The staff is very friendly.
