I came to this hotel as a friend was getting married close by. It is a beautiful hotel, the area is fab!!! Rooms are beautiful with outdoor terrace. Ours was pool facing so I would request this on booking. It's the perfect hideaway to relax by the pool. Porta banus is a short taxi ride away costing €15. The hotel prices at bar/rest are very reasonable. Beer €3, Cocktails €6. Lunch average price €10 to €15. Marbella also a similar distance & cost away in a taxi. Local supermarket a 5 min walk away where you can get things if needed. I would suggest using buses from Malaga airport to Marbella express costing €6. From Marbella a taxi is €24 but if you get the bus it's about €4. Buses reliable & fast. I didn't use the spa but I heard rave
reviews. Breakfast choice was huge & good quality. The place is perfect for relaxing by the pool & it's adults only so very peaceful. Staff lovely, value for money amazing. This is my last day here & I don't want to leave. Will me booking to come back ASAP!!

Visited in the spring of 2014.

Hotel is located just of the main coastal road, without having any noise from it.
Located just outside Marbella in Estepona, a quiet coastal town.

The rooms are standard size with a small balcony. Bathroom only has a tub - I personally prefer a separate shower. Cleanliness was as expected.

Staff is very friendly, both at reception, restaurant, bar and room service.

Breakfast in the weekends is elaborate, with fresh fruit, pastry, pancakes, cereals, cold meats and cheeses.

Pool is magnificent, you can actually do laps in it and there's a convenient pool bar. Spa area is very well maintaned as well.

Got a double room @ 100 Euros per night. Worth going back at that price point.

All in all happy with my stay. The only negative thing I can say is that you have to pay extra to use the parking, although there is plenty of parking space outside. And the location is not great if you think you are near the sea.

Just back from a long weekend stay at the barcelo estepona hotel being a regular visitor to the banus area we thought we would try it out and we weren't disappointed.
The hotels appearance is a very modern and welcoming we had booked a superior room with its own private sun terrace this room also boasted a separate reception area and as this room was located at the very end of the corridor no passing footfall meant you we're never disturbed.
We booked on a bed and breakfast option and the breakfast was adequate but not extensive if won't a huge selection then I would suggest this is not the place for you. We had travelled to this location in a car which leads me onto parking don't park in the hotel car park as if will be 15 euro a day we parked on the adjacent street which has no restrictions and plentiful. If you sang to explore the area then a car is a must as otherwise location of hotel will not be for you. However if you want a taxi into banus a fate should be no more than 17 euro
My overall perspective of the hotel is that I would go back as it doesn't attract the party set and you can have a good nights sleep
Value for money 10/10
Location 6/10
Cleanliness 10/10
Food choice 5/10

Poor location - close to a freeway - you have to cross it to get to the beach (ca.10 min by car). In the middle of nowhere, there is nothing interesting in the immediate surroundings. Building is quite old and needs refurbisment. Weak choice for breakfast, very few fresh fruits or vegetables.

And what was annoying - Barcelo quality manager send me mails in Russian all the time. I explained I am not Russian - but id has not helped.

Si! Si! Si! Is what I have to say about my eight-night stay at this centrally located Costa del Sol hotel. If you can get past the ‘70’s décor (the hotel really needs a major face-lift) you will be in for a fabulous and peaceful stay. Starting from the front-desk reception check-in staff who will do everything to please you, on to Jorge at the restaurant (thank-you for the soft classical music which created a beautiful and stress-less atmosphere) and his staff in the kitchen who not only prepare 5-star buffets and menu specialties daily, but will also make almost anything off the menu to please you and accommodate your (vegetarian) needs, to the Spa with over 2,000 square meters on two floors making it impossible for you (and especially your spouse) not to relax, be massaged, get a facial, or just unwind,…..ALL of this at incredibly competitive and reasonable prices rarely found in Europe. Oh yes, the outdoor pool is wonderful as well. We cannot wait to return and invite our visiting guests here.
