Receptionist are very helpful and very welcoming. The rooms are a good size and kept really clean. The pool area is substantial with enough sun beds for everyone, and the pool bar is good. The hotel is unusually quiet with there being no children under the age of 16. The hotel bar does not open until 5o'clock but drinks can... More

A friend and I have stayed at the Barcelo on several occasions , mainly because we really love the spa, the rooms (we rent the very large penthouse suite, amazing), and the lovely staff.

Great hotel for adults only! Modern, contemporary with a great spa and restaurant. My favourite was the pool area, very spacious and luscious, the ideal place to switch off and relax. Great location too, short distance to the beach and short drive to Estepona or San Pedro de Alcantara and 10km from Puerto Banus. Room was clean, spacious, with all... More

Lovely clean hotel, quiet but a little out of the way. Set in a residential area, can't fault the staff or hotel. Location in reality to Estepona itself about 5 miles on the irregular bus service, even local lady told me the buses were useless! No faults with hotel at all , it was a very relaxing break!

The location of this hotel is not what I would call Estepona; this is quite misleading. It's actually a lot nearer to Marbella/ Puerto Banus area. The hotel is just off a very busy roundabout and not particularly close to anything of any interest. I would say that it's essential that you hire a car if you are wanting to... More

The hotel was disappointing what was advertised. Beach no where to be seen and hotel situated on a very busy dual carriageway opposite a Burger King 😞 The free shuttle bus which was advertised finished in August.
