Hi, does anyone know whether the junior suites have room safes in them?
Hi A safe, fridge and wi fi were included in the price. A lovely hotel but out of season we had to get taxis to Esteponia and a resort going the other way. Both were very lovely.

Is it possible to get bus outside the hotel into Estapona town?
Apparently buses run in high season. We travelled at the end of October and had to get taxis to Esteponia and to a resort the other way. Both very nice.
