Dear John K, thank you very much for your kind comments towards our staff. It is with great pleasure to read that you and your family have enjoyed your stay with us once again and that you also enjoyed our new restaurants. The pathway along the beach is a great addition for our clients as it is now possible to walk into Estepona all the way to the port (2-6km). Thank you for recommending us to other travellers and we are looking forward to welcoming you back again next year. With kind regards. Belen Arenas - Director of Rooms

Dear Kai T, Thank you for sharing your valuable experience regarding your recent stay with us and we deeply regret to know that you have not enjoyed it. Our resort is opened 365 days per year, in order to maintain our facilities in perfect conditions and following legislation we must do some works which are normally conducted during the law season, but there is always an alternative to the guest thus service is not affected, in the case of the pools we have four in the hotel, the maintenance is done on different stages. Please accept our apologies for the inconveniences that we may have caused you. Best regards Belén Arenas Director of Rooms
