A fantastic versatile hotel!
We went as a couple to relax by the pool and to be able to drink and eat throughout the day. This hotel catered for that and more. The hotel has a water park for those looking for something more fun and plenty of pools to find for those looking for somewhere quieter to relax around. The food was good (although we chose to book at the beach bar most days) and the snack bar was better than expected with hot dogs, burgers and fries available throughout the day. The room was modern and clean and offered the comforts you'd need to relax after a long day by the pool. The hotel is situated close to a bus stop, which allows you to travel away from the hotel lifestyle and is very easy to use and find your way back. Finally the staff were superb and we're always happy to help and do so with a smile.More
Having read some reviews before we went here I thought perhaps I had made a mistake in booking this hotel. However I am so glad that I did as we had a great time. We arrived close to midnight on the 5th May and was greeted by a friendly receptionist who instantly made us feel at ease, advised there was food in the restaurant if we wanted it which was made especially for us. The hotel was spotless. All the staff from the receptionists, waiting staff to the cleaners were all friendly, polite and professional. My daughter loved saying ola to them and giving them high 5s and they all made my daughter feel special. Everywhere we went there was always someone cleaning at all hours of the day. The food I found to be good, great selection to choose from and the carvery is one to have, I had it nearly every night. Was the food piping hot? No. However has anyone ever been to a buffet service and found that to be the case??. I found this an advantage as it meant my daughter could eat hers straight away without fear or burning herself. There is a microwave there if you need it but I never did it certainly wasn't cold food. The location is great, near the beach which, ok isn't golden sands and does have some pebbles, but certainly not as bad as some of the reviews I read. We went to Aldi which is at the top of the road for baby supplies and also the bus stop is there. We went to Marbella, Peurto Banus and Estepona and found it easy enough to get out and about even with 2 children under the age of 4. All in all we had a great time and would not hesitate to go back. My advise. If you want al a carte food this is not the place for you but if you want to go somewhere which is clean, child friendly and where the staff go above and beyond then this place is a must. I never write reviews but felt that this hotel had some unfair comments so had to respond. Thank you to all the staff at Globales Playa Estepona for a fantastic holiday!!More
Great family holiday
We arrived on the 5th may and have to say we are very impressed. Lovely hotel, great facilities, friendly staff and lovely food (don't believe the negative reviews we have enjoyed every meal and is above some other 4 star all inclusive we have stayed at previously). Well done playa estepona staff ðMore
What a fantastic hotel. The hotel really doesn't disappoint, the grounds are massive with six pools scattered around with 3 separate areas of really fun slides. Hotel is spotless there is always someone cleaning I did not see a speck of dirt anywhere. Rooms are nice with comfy beds. Modern. Staff ALWAYS happy to help, we travelled with our five month old baby and the staff would never see me sterilising the bottles they would always come and do them for me. Lovely gardens. Children's entertainment is great, adults is ok. Wine and beer on tap all day. I like my white wine and the one provided is very nice!!!! Food is nice, ques get a bit long but what do you expect. Overall fantastic holiday and would definitely return More
