Address: Caraterra De Cadiz Km 168, Estepona, 29688, Spain

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.2

A golfers' paradise near Estepona that is also great for family breaks.

While this hotel wins no style awards, it delivers everything it says on the tin. With two golf courses, of all the places to stay in the Estepona area this is certainly the one for you if you are a keen golfer. Golf aside, there is plenty to do for the family as well, particularly in terms of sports, with free tuition for children under 12, plus a beach right on your doorstep. While you can book in under your own steam, my friends who stay here usually book through their tour operator in the UK on an all inclusive basis.

Location

Located on the beachfront between the towns of Marbella and Estepona.

Bedrooms

The hotel has 382 spacious and comfortable rooms, with 53 family rooms, 33 suites and 13 villas, all of them offer fantastic sea and mountain views from their terraces. All rooms have air-conditioning, satellite TV with movie channels, plus WiFi.

Public areas

This is where the Atalaya really excels. Set in vast exotic grounds, I think it has more of a village feel than that of a hotel. Bars and restaurants are scattered around in various locations around the grounds, all with a very distinct ambience and style.

Eating and drinking

There are three restaurants, each with their own style, as well as two bars. The breakfast bar was particularly well stocked with a great range of cereals and breads. That said, there have been various complaints from punters using the all inclusive options regarding quality.

Leisure facilities

It is for the grounds and facilities that you are probably here, and both are superb. The main pool area is particularly attractive, with two great outdoor pools and one indoor one. There is not one, but two, 18-hole golf courses, plus nine tennis courts and a good gym and watersports centre. I love the fact that there's a full-size football pitch, which is great for foreign football teams to come and practice on out of season.

Service

Not exactly dynamic, and there have been some complaints.

Who stays there

Many golfers from all over Europe, but families who like sports and relaxing.

Price advice

There are some fabulous bargains to be had off season.
