Elba Estepona Gran Hotel & Thalasso Spa Review

We have just returned after 5 wonderful days in Estapona. Now this is not a review on the area itself as we were here for a family wedding so the majority of our time was with this wedding party and not sightseeing but it is a Elba Estepona Gran Hotel & Thalasso Spa Review. This was the hotel we stayed in and I just have to share my thoughts.

I did snapchat the entire time we were there (username bloggerclarewth)

We arrived pretty late to the hotel and you might think the check in staff might be tired or not as excited as one might be a a more normal time of the day! wrong .. the two who checked us in were lovely, friendly, warm, welcoming and instantly sorted us out with a welcome drink and gave us all the information regarding dining times, where the spa was located etc etc etc… Check in was a breeze.

Now onto fining our room number 215, this was a ocean view Junior Suite and it was large! the bathroom was bigger than many hotel rooms I have stayed in before, in the main area there were twin sinks and tonnes of storage , then you move into another area that had a  Jacuzzi bath and separate jet shower, then into the final area there was the toilet and bidea. The bed was the biggest I have ever slept in, if I lay one side and my husband the other with our arms stretched we could not join hands, it was that big, there was also a lovely sitting room area with large sofa, chair and coffee table, a dining table and 4 chairs, a working desk and chair, a large flat screen tv and a luggage desk + the balcony had two large sliding doors that opened back to reveal the large balcony with two loungers , a table and tow dining chairs. You get the picture, this room was large! Comfortable and really luxurious.

There are many options for Dining at the Elba Estepona Gran Hotel including an All Inclusive option, we however opted for B&B as with the wedding we really would not have got value from the other options available. The breakfast is varied and plentiful, you can opt for fresh fruit, fresh baked breaks, pastry’s and cakes, traditional Spanish fried breakfast, teas, coffee’s, juices, champagne , waffles, pancaked, eggs every way including made to order omelettes, the choices just goes on and on and there really is something for ever one.

The pools are gorgeous, sure what is not to love about amazing sunshine, a great big pool and fabulous comfortable loungers. On the one day we actually got to chill out at the hotel we used the cabana beds on the roof and the roof top pool, heaven it was and lovely an peaceful with views out over the sea. We have stayed in many 5* hotels and resorts and it is usual for the area the cabana beds are to be only available to premium guests or at an additional charge, they were available to everyone here and free off charge and I can not put into words how comfortable they were. Actually these beds would be one of my top reasons to visit here again.

In addition to the above I used the hotel hair-salon, again this was 5*, I spoke with reception prior to making my booking and I explained I was getting ready for a wedding and they said look, the salon gets very busy but we will fit you in, any issues at all we will sort it, and really this was the theme throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble, it was always their pleasure to assist.

The lobby, the bars, the pools are all spotless and luxurious. This is a true 5* hotel that I would highly recommend. If you have any specific questions please feel free to email me claere@clarewiththehair.com or snapchat me bloggerclarewth and I will be only too happy to help.

I booking through Click & Go and my package included the flights, hotel and airport transfers which I should write a separate review for because they were actually wonderful. Here is a link to the site so you can get a quote CLICK&GO
