I can highly recommend this hotel. Not 5 star in UK terms but a great atmosphere all the same. All of the staff are exceptionally attentive and friendly Worth paying for the half board option - it's buffet style but the range and quality of the food is excellent Would definitely come back

From the balcony on the second floor you can see Gibraltar and North Africa in the distance and enjoy the best view. Rooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable, but the only difficulty is that little ants may come out of the room.

The rooms in this hotel are probably the biggest I have stayed in Europe and we had a great view of Gibraltar, but I’m afraid that’s where the good points stop. The hotel sits next to the busy AP-7 road and has no pedestrian access either east or west from the hotel except along the beach which is a very...

Excellent hotel in many aspects.Beautiful design with practical ideas behind it.All rooms face the sea and at night you are put to sleep by the sound of the sea which is a dream.The room is soo big and a very long corridor separates it from the many corridor where the noise happens.So this is the most quiet room we ever...

I was a bit worried travelling alone with 3 children (one with special needs), but this hotel was really wonderful! We were upgraded for free, had a beautiful suite with 2 double beds, a single bed and a cot! Beautiful sea view and great bath and shower. The staff were very helpful and the children loved the indoor pool when...

After our most recent visit in September 2016 we planned to return here in September 2018. However while pricing up a spring weekend in London, we realised that we could have a full week here for the same cost! Anyone appreciating value for money hotel will find Hotel Elba Estepona very hard to beat. Last September we commented that in...
