stayed for 2 nights in september as part of a team building trip. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was pleasant. The pool bar was nice although the drinks were expensive. Didn't really interact with any staff or use many of the hotel facilities but it made a good base for getting out and about with colleagues.

The Iberostar Costa del Sol is an wonderful and friendly hotel. The rooms, the personal and the food is excellent. Every evening new show, nice snack-bar area and nice poolarea inside as outside. Close to the beach and beach restaurantes. I love this place and the personal love the guests. They will do everything for you and with a smile.

A frustrating hotel. It has the potential to be much better than it is. All the time spent here I had a sense that there was penny pinching going on by the Iberostar bean counters. Any criticism here is directed at them, not the wonderful friendly staff at the resort itself. I have also stayed (twice,) All Inclusive at the...

The hotel as such is outdated and not very attractively because of the white lights outside and the restaurant setup. The employees are very friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms including the bathrooms are outdated but very clean.

First, this hotel is not in Estepona. It's about 10 km east. It's a 15€ taxi ride to the old part of Estepona. There is nothing around. No restaurants, no stores, nada. It's an all inclusive so if you don't pay the all inclusive subsidy there is no place to eat (not that you'd want too). No place to get...

The hotel was quite pretty, generally well looked after with nice staff. The air conditioning in our room had either been turned off for the season or was not working and the sliding glass cupboard doors were off their tracks. The fridge in the room was for you to use if you purchased food. There was nothing in the fridge....
