“Great B&B”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Enjoyed a weeks stay at the hotel and really couldn't fault it. Staff were courteous and helpful. Breakfast buffet was fresh and filling with excellent pastries, breads and coffee. The pool area is beautiful with plenty of room. The spa was beautiful.
Having not stayed in that area for some time it does take some time to find your bearings. The hotel sits right on the A7 with fast access to Puerto Benus and Marbella, and down the coast to some stunning quiet beaches towards Gibralter. Estepona is a little disappointing asa resort but does have some lovely beaches as you head out of town. There are very pretty little places like Playa de la Ducesse which is great for lunch or a night out. The very best thing about staying at this hotel was the bed, a stunning super king unlike anything you'll experience in a resort hotel. A great bonus. Altogther cannot fault the hotel and it was an excellent stay.
Unlike others I would eat in the hotel and avoid Aiden's place in Cancelada. The food there was overpriced and underwhelming. The bar food in the hotel is much better quality.
There was entertainment on the Thursday night due to the Bank Holiday provided by an excellent keyboard player/singer.

Room Tip: The pool rooms will have the best view but our room (203) even though it faced the road was quiet, a...

Enjoyed the hotel particularly the Spa and Pool which were excellent but the position within the area is not good. Once in the hotel you are not aware of the pretty awful surroundings but certainly you need a car or a taxi if you want to explore. I would not recommend this hotel for a stay of more than a few days.

Lovely hotel, spa is amazing. Breakfast is a really good selection and we have had the set lunch/dinner and buffet, all were good value and plenty of choice. There are two nice beach bar/restaurants within 10 mins walk (walk across the busy road and turn right before the petrol station). There is also a bus to either estepona and puerto banus/Marbella for €2.10 each way, taxi back from puerto banus cost us 16 euros. Plenty of street car parking available. Casares and benahavis are two pretty white villages to visit and some lovely restaurants in benahavis.

Excellent hotel,very clean and comfortable.Big wide beds. Pool area and Spa superb. Buffet breakfast delicious.Go to the local village of Cancelada for eating and drinking,much cheaper and friendlier. This was our second visit.
The hotel was in its own little haven,it is such a shame that the beautiful coastline has been ruined and spoilt by unfinished blocks of apartments covering the hills and the sea front.

I hate to moan & always try to see the good side to everything. We stayed for 6 nights. On arrival I have to say the location was a HUGE disappointment, right next to busy main road, and beach was no where to be seen. It would take a very fit individual to walk there if they are brave enough to cross the main road.
The room was pleasant enough, though I have stayed in much nicer. It was spotlessly clean, and the bed linen appeared to be changed daily. The bed was generous and comfortable.
We had the B&B deal. The breakfast was the usual buffet, but as with most other hotels we have stayed in, there was no chef on hand rustling up hot fresh food. It was all quite tired and worryingly tepid. My pet hate is cold food and there are probably food hygiene issues around tepid food. Bizarrely there was brussel sprouts on offer several days, but not once was there a tomato to be seen. Strange with the abundance of tomatoes you see everywhere. I love fried eggs, so often chose that option, and everyday they were cold, and gone off solid, which seemed to upset my tummy.
I would say it is not ideal as a holiday hotel, more of a business venue. It has a no children policy, which I thought was a nice idea, however it really lacked atmosphere. I thought I would treat myself to Spa treatment. Very pricey, so gave that a miss. I found relaxing by the pool an impossibility with the constant drone of the traffic just a few short meters away. Holiday, no, business stay, yes, and then just a few days.

Room Tip: Difficult. Ours was 4th floor, and as far as I could see, every room looked out over the motorway!

I was visiting Gibraltar the following day and having spent the day at Ronda did not want to drive all the way back to Alhaurin El Grande.
$64.40 euro including a beautiful and superb buffet breakfast was too good to resist.
The room was spacious and the bathroom was modern and very clean, water pressure was fantastic.
Free Wi-Fi which was very quick, despite the size of the hotel.
Hotel parking, 8 euro, was extra and not necessary due to the large amount of street parking near the hotel.
The night staff were very obliging and the whole experience was great.
