Booked the Junior Suite with balcony room (the one with bath tub). The room was very generous in size with comfortable sofas & TV with a fair selection of channels. It had an enormous bed which was very comfortable (I'd even say new mattress) & overall it was very clean.
This room has a balcony the width of the room overlooking the pool area with table & chairs PLUS a large terrace on the side with sunbeds, a dining table and the bath tub. Disappointed that the bath tub was just that-a bath tub-which has been installed in a terrace & is covered by a wooden box. It is narrow and although it had two head cushions the water jets are only on one side of the bath. This was disappointing as we expected a more appropriate version for exteriors.
Breakfast buffet had a good selection of cereals, fresh fruits, pastries, breads, omelettes etc, etc.
Pool area was relaxing, nice size pool which was not busy and a pool bar playing music at a reasonable volume.
I must add that the hotel was difficult to find as it has no name on the facade and the GPS finder gave me two addresses. It is isolated with nothing but private houses, a Burger King and a Lidl supermarket next to it. It is a 15 minute drive to Estepona where there are plenty of restaurants etc.
As I said in my title, perfect for relaxing.

Stayed here for 6 days in May.After reading the bad reviews I do agree with what some of them say but we had room 405 overlooking the road and once the patio doors were shut and the air con was on we couldn't really hear it.Also the rooms have an inner door from the bathroom leading to the bedroom which stops any noise from the communal hallway.We had the bed and breakfast option and the choices we o.k but didn't offer boiled eggs or pancakes which most other hotels do.Tried the buffet dinner option once but then discovered El Carnicero which is a ten minute walk up the road and has fantastic steaks and is a lovely restaurant. The pool is huge and rather cold but it was only May and hasn't had a chance to warm up yet.The walk to the beach is about ten minutes and you have to cross the busy roundabouts.The best part about this hotel is the no children policy so the pool area is nice and chilled.We had a car as well because on the cloudy days we drove into Puerto Banus which is about a 15 min drive.The hotel has a secure underground car park which we paid 8 euros a day.The spa has a nice sea water hot pool with various jet treatments.Staff were helpful and friendly. All in all a nice relaxing break but be aware it is on a busy road and a ten minute walk anywhere.

Barcelo did not let us know that this hotel had been taken over by Exe, we booked last February Stayed here may 8th for 7 days, location awful, busy motorwayA7 practically on the doorstep, scruffy, rubbish strewn area surrounding hotel, noisy traffic and not pleasant to walk, even to bus stop. Beach at least a 20 minute walk across motorway via bridge. Taxi fair to/from estapona 15to17 euros so unless you have plenty of money to spare, forget it!! Hotel was advertising 10 minute walk to Estapona but now revised to 10 minute drive, it is 10 kms to Estapona town. We were half board, the dinner food was dire, most of the food cold, I complained once and was told there was a microwave!!! It did not change, food that should be hot was cold or lukewarm all week. Don't be fooled by description of a peaceful stroll around the gardens, only garden is around the pool and this might take you a minute to walk around.My elderly parents were with us and there was nothing to easily walk to, do not bring anyone with poor mobility here, the shower over bath is difficult and slippery for them to use.There was no entertainment except showing the football and the motor racing. Not enough staff, waiting at bar for someone to serve was commonplace. Room was passable, clean, nothing special.very disappointing and will not return.

Disappointed to discover that the hotel is not a 10 minute walk to the centre of Estepona but a 20 minutes drive by car. When this was highlighted with the staff at reception a mere shrug of the shoulders was offered as an observation of this gross misrepresentation, very disappointing.

Hotel visited prior to the Exe take over, booked under Barcelo Hotels Group. On arrival no mention was made that 2 day’s into our stay that Exe were taking over the hotel under new management. A €30 charge was added to hotel bill under Barcelo Group for a service we had not used. I.e. use of the hotel spa, as the hotel had already been taken over by Exe, they didn’t want to help in refunding the money that was fraudulently taken out of bank account, excuse after excuse given, until refund could only be made by complaining about it to bank themselves. This severely took a huge amount of time out of my stay and subsequently ruined holiday. Hotel was unable to provide a reason for this fraudulent transaction claiming only that it had been an “accident”. Hotel room not as shown in pictures advertised on Hotels.com as bathroom had a terrible orange sink counter and the shower leaked from under the screen due to there being no guard to prevent water from spilling onto the floor-dangerous! Multiple towels therefore had to be used to soak up the problem. Pointless mini bar fridge as it wasn’t even on. Gym had no ventilation and therefore too stuffy working up a sweat.

Asking for ice was hassle at the bar and no option for tap water to be ulnar therefore paying €3 for a bottle!

Outside swimming pool was freezing even on hot days and not cleaned regularly. Many guests commenting on the amount of scum and mildew seen. Sunbeds could do with renovation as wood had become very flaky and dehydrated.

Overall despicable service as other guests arrived confused that the hotel had been taken over by Exe even though they had booked under Barcelo.
