We arrived very early, before lunch, and were shown to our room, an upgrade to a junior suite, which was really special. We have stayed here several times and all the rooms are wonderful, the junior suite however was something else, a wrap around terrace, amazing panoramic views, sunbeds on the terrace, a large table and chairs for al fresco...

From start to finish, we couldn't fault this hotel! From our welcome by Victoyia to our time in the spa with Alicia, Alexandra & Veronica, to all the restaurant and bar staff, the service was every bit worthy of 5 star! Whether it was breakfast, lunch on the terrace, dinner in Almuneria, a snack in the lounge, or birthday celebration...

Nice hotel overall, but needs a few tweaks to be a great 5* hotel. Upon arrival I felt check in was average, no arrival drinks or tour of the hotel, which would have been a welcome extra. As others say it is just off the busy main motorway, which you cannot hear from the grounds, but unfortunately our room did...

Spent 5 nights over Christmas. Excellent service, delicious food, very comfortable room everything we were looking for and more. Every single member of staff we met were welcoming, friendly and helpful. They definitely are the greatest asset to the hotel and deserve recognition for their hard work. Hope to return again soon to recharge our batteries.

Great hotel! Stayed there for three nights between Dec 27th until 30th, 2016 with a friend. Rooms were in a good shape. Very nice bathrooms as well and fabulous balconies. Only criticism: Mattress was much too soft so if somebody turns around you feel it directly. Breakfast was excellent! Great choice of local products and nice service. We had gorgeous...

We've seen quite a lot of ads promoting Christmas Brunch in Kempinski Estepona. Photos looked great and menu promising, so we decided to take on it. Price for two was 276 EUR and kids were free of charge. Quality of experience did not meet the price put on it and our expectations levelled by the ads. There was a wide...
