Expert review of Hotel Altamarina

Great budget option in the heart of Estepona old town.

If you want to stay in the heart of Estepona, then the Altamarina is your best bet. As well as being just 150 metres from the sea, it is also a two-minute walk into the heart of the charming old town with all its great shops and restaurants. It's modern and wins no style awards, but it makes up for this with its friendly service, great location and price.

Location: 

Located in the heart of Estepona on the edge of the casco historico.

Bedrooms: 

The rooms are clean and adequate in size with the best of them offering sea views and great terraces. But be warned these come on a very much first come first served basis. And while the rooms all have air-conditioning, TVs and en suite bathrooms, I was not very impressed by the rooms with a window looking onto an ugly building just metres away. That said, this is not really the sort of place where you would want to spend all your time in your room.

Public areas: 

Largely limited to a reception area, with a café and restaurant next door.

Eating and drinking: 

A buffet breakfast is served in the restaurant with a variety of choices from continental, to a Full English breakfast if required. The restaurant doubles up as a café/tapas bar that is used by many locals, which is a good sign. It offers classical local fare, with plenty of fresh fish and seafood.

Leisure facilities: 

There is no pool, but with the sea only 150 metres away, it’s a compromise you might be happy with.

Service: 

Friendly and hospitable, with bilingual staff.
