We had a room to prepare for a wedding nearby. The management was incredibly arrogant and unfriendly. Told us they don't want to see us here again just because we ordered a pizza as they don't even have room service! Rooms are basic and overall experience was below average. Better stay away. PS. Iberostar also sent us an email with...

I love this hotel. Staff very friendly and food was delicious. There are three swimming pools to choose from but one of them you need to pay to get in. It is a very cool hotel and it is also near the beach where you can walk along.

Air conditioning in room was not good, blowing hot air, on the plus side room was clean and bathroom excellent. Food was standered, not brilliant, a lot swimming in oil. Indoor...

This was the fifth time staying at this hotel but the first as Iberostar and all inclusive. We were treated like royalty for the whole stay. The staff especially Virina and her bar staff were out of this world! We did find a couple of the staff rude and not helpful (Fernando and Olena) but other than that we could...

We stay at a number of high end hotels so Iberostar is never going to fall into that category. However, our daughter loves mini discos and this is guaranteed at Iberostar family hotels. In this respect the hotel did not let us down. The animation team and kids club were excellent with a mini disco every evening even though we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome! You will have a fantastic holiday here! The IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol beach hotel in Estepona, Malaga, has everything you need to enjoy an unbeatable getaway. El Saladillo beach is just a few steps away. The kids can pretend they’re pirates in the pool and our massage therapists will be in the spa, preparing oils for your next session. These are just a few reasons why our all-inclusive hotel in Malaga is one of the best hotels in which to spend a few relaxing days. Want to hear the others? True relaxation. As well as having the beach right in front of you, this Costa del Sol hotel offers a range of options, from charming rooms for uninterrupted sleep to the most luxurious suites with private pools. You can go for a dip without needing to leave your room. Water everywhere. Not just one, or two, or even three options. You can swim in over 20 bathing areas and pools at this hotel in Malaga! With or without loungers, covered or in the open air, to share or just for you, with waterfalls or without, and even with water slides for the adventurous types to enjoy. Delight your taste buds. Could anything be better than enjoying your favourite dish while on holiday? Yes! Watching our chefs prepare it before your eyes during a show cooking session. What’s more, our restaurants serve the best Spanish and international cuisine, plus typical Andalusian dishes for you to enjoy. A whole array of activities. Whatever your kids’ ages, they won’t want to leave the Miniclub. This hotel is perfect for a trip with the kids. They can become true flamenco artists in our dance classes, practise their checkmates on the giant chessboard or hunt for hidden treasure in a game of pirates. Mamma Mia. An ABBA tribute performance at the IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol! And much more: Flamenco dance, acrobatics performances, magic shows, live music, and more. Because the entertainment at this Estepona hotel is for you too – not just the kids. Be pampered. Relax with an oriental massage, soothe your body in the sauna or submerge yourself in our water circuit. The SPA Sensations at the IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol offers a whole world of sensations in an 800-m² space where you can relax and pamper yourself like never before. Cross the straits in half an hour. During your holiday, why not take the opportunity to visit Tangier? You’re only 14 km from the coast of Africa - that’s half an hour away by ferry. Explore the galleries of the bazaars, surround yourself with colour and the scent of the spices. ... more   less
