Hotels in estepona
Estepona has a growing selection of hotels. The most expensive and luxurious hotels in Estepona are the Kempinski and Villa Padierna, both a few kilometres to the east of the town. The H10 and the Hotel Fuerte Estepona are situated 2km west and are both frontline to the beach, ideal for families.
At the other end of the price range, but excellent value for money, spotlessly clean and preferred by many are the smaller long-standing town centre hotels; Hotel Mediterráneo and Hotel Buenavista Estepona on the sea front near Avenida Juan Carlos where Mare Estepona hotel is a few block back. Even cheaper, albeit nosier, are a few hostels in the old town itself. Economic, though basic, but clean, and often with bathrooms en suite. There are a couple of new hotels currently being constructed in the old town.
Holiday apartments for holiday rental tended to be located to the west of the town in the marina area or in one of the housing urbanisations outside the town. There are now a couple of apartments for tourists available in to old town centre.
