Near golf and gaming

The hotel has watersports and bike rentals, plus a golf concierge to help you select from 50-plus local courses. A 14-minute drive takes you to Casino Marbella, where you can dine on fine Spanish dishes in an art-filled restaurant, and keep the dice rolling until early morning.

4 pools, 4 restaurants

Great location, staff and food.
The amazing staff really made this a 5 star experience for us. The bed was pretty uncomfortable (felt worn out) but the staff brought in a new topper and did their best to make us comfortable. The hotel was nice and clean and in a good location. Old town Estepona was a short cab ride (or long walk -- it's about 5 - 6 miles away) but if you decide to hang at the hotel there are several pools, the beach, a great restaurant and wonderful sculptures and artwork.
