We woke up at 6:00 (yawn) and Tara met us to say good-bye. I do hope we keep in touch. Hamid sent someone to pick up our bags - a young guy and even he was huffing and puffing by the time he climbed the streets with the cart and our bags! We were on the road by around 7:00 to get to Tangier in time for the ferry. Hamid told us that we had to go a …
... crisp. The dogs did a lot of panting. El Presidente was happy that his Dominion is under control and the children were happy to have a swim when we got back to the house. The dogs had a good stroll and there are lots more at Adana (the dog home). Have a good look at the Adana website and if you'd like to adopt one (or more), we can bring them back with us next year. If you are a wealthy philanthropist, Helen would also love to hear from you! Here's some ...
... from cable car to platform varies as the car sways in the breeze and offers a long view down to ground level but it is negotiated successfully and then it is back on the bus. The locals join us as we take off and swing up, on and over the bus with great alacrity.
Next stop the Siege Tunnels at Princess Carolines Battery and the entrance to the upper galleries. The limestone Rock is more like swiss cheese or honeycomb! It is no longer solid! ...
... is posted there with the Royal Air Force unit. She had her young daughter and 2 month old baby with here; baby carriages go smoothly on and off the bus with a lift that extends from the front door of the bus down to the sidewalk.
The drive from Ronda south to the coast was again the rolling hills with limestone "mountains" high above them, sheep i the pastures and a far view of several of the "white hill towns". A beautiful day for this adventure!
... for the cable car, this was poorly organized with two counters but one dealing with tour groups who got priority and the other one was so slow it was painful. The till ran out of paper and the girl did not have a clue how to change it – took about 10 minutes, then we had to queue again for the cable car itself behind all the tour groups who had got ahead of us. Each car, and there were only 2, took about 30 people standing up and the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Estepona Palace
My husband and I have just returned from a very relaxing week at this hotel.Please bear in mind that this hotel was not full when we stayed,so the following report may not apply to more peak times of the year.
Booked independently, Half-Board and we were happy enough with the out of town location.
A gorgeous hotel, with very large well appointed rooms and bathrooms. The only problem with the rooms were the lack of entertainment channels in English on the TV (just two news channels and disney channel), loads if you're German!
This hotel is not yet a 4 star, the hotel itself is very nice and relaxing, the rooms are hit and miss ours was very good overlooking the ocean (room 469), others were very small with limited view.
No facilities for children
We have just returned from staying at H10 in Estepona. Unfortunatley for us and other guests this hotel is going through a huge extension programme thus the childrens playground and pool are closed as is the gym area and internal shops were empty - we were not advised of this before our departure or upon arrival. There is no entertainment in the evening for children - and the entertainment that was on offer was of a very poor standard. The reception staff are extremley unhelpful - in fact when we complained about the childrens areas not being available we were told that if we didnt like the hotel we should leave - which we did! I am sure once the extension has been completed this hotel will be lovely - but wait another year at least before going!!
We have just returned from a week at the Estepona Palace and had a wonderful holiday. The hotel is really like a Palace. The moment we entered the vast reception area we treated to champagne and made very welcome by courteous and efficient staff at reception.
I wouldn't really recommend this hotel to anybody. The hotel pretends to be a palace and the rooms and the hotel area is huge. But it has a rather aseptic, unpersonal feeling. One does not really feel at home. Service at the restaurant is notably slow and the food below standard (only buffet was available). Also there was some sort of electrical switch at the balcony door in our room. Supposedly it was to prevent robberies, but actually it is a safty hazard for little kids (and for anybody touching it): you will definitely get an electrical shock when doing so. On the positive side, the pool and kid's pool are very nice, but again this is really necessary, because you wouldn't want to spend time among the dead fish at the beach in front of the hotel.
WE booked this as a late deal through an internet based company, who also arranged the flights and managed to secure a 10 day stay flying with a regular carrier.
My husband and I have just returned from a week at the Estepona Palace. The hotel was absolutely wonderful, great food, drinks prices comparable to those at the marina (possibly a bit cheaper) and the staff very friendly. The hotel was by no means full so you could get a sunbed at any time of the day. they supply towels too which is a bonus. The restaurants and bars were always fairly empty. We didn't mind as it was a completely relaxing week. The marina is a good 20 minute walk (out of the hotel, turn right and keep going). If you want somewhere to buy a bottle of water, go outside hotel turn left and there's a garage, pretty well stocked on most stuff. It's a fairly out of the way hotel so if you're looking for a reasonably quiet place then that's for you.
The Estepona Palace was just as we expected it to be for a 4 star - Large, comfortable and not too ostentatious. The main reception area is enormous, nicely decorated, with plenty of seating and we were greeted with free champagne (a good start!).
