Very nice hotel with great amenities. The welcome and the care of customers are warm. I was shocked that a hotel of this standard did not offer air conditioning in winter. As a result, I must have slept with the window open. Big flaw.

Very expensive hotel offering hardly any service; rooms magnificent but that's all. Breakfast outstanding. Three restaurants available, Spiler next to the pool GOOD, Balthazar average and bar snacks also average. Be patient for car and luggage. Poor blur overall.

All in all, we had a great stay at Kempinski Bahia. We will very likely return and we would like to suggest you a few improvements to make the whole experience of your guests really a 5 star one, which, at the moment, is still lacking in some respects. We would first like to compliment beautiful surroundings of the hotel, especially the gardens and the pool area. Also the location, perfectly situated next to the beach walk to Estepona on one side and Marbella on the other. Additionally, we were impressed by the breakfast offer. The offer was wide, fresh, healthy and diverse. The service and drinks selection and Spiler and Black Rose bar were excellent, we cannot comment dining experiences as we only enjoyed drinks there. The staff of the hotel is friendly and helpful, however, one really needs to be persistent. For example, on day one, we arrived to the hotel and the lady on the reception was very friendly, however, slightly in a hurry. She forgot to mention several things to us, for example, a 100 euro voucher for all additional services, free welcome cocktails etc. In order to use the voucher, we had to remind the staff on the last day of the stay, when paying the bill, otherwise it would have been forgotten. In a 5-star hotel, it should not be up to the guest to take care of such matters. Furthermore, we also had to request the drinks vouchers. After the reminder, they were kindly and promptly delivered, however, again, for a 5 star experience, guests should not be the ones reminding the reception. Therefore, we believe that guests, at this moment, do not get to experience full 5 stars when it comes to the hotel services. The following experience further confirms my point; before our stay, we received an email whether we have any specific wishes. We are passionate hikers so we mentioned we would really appreciate some recommendations regarding the local walks, paths and hikes. Upon the arrival and during our stay, there was no mention of that whatsoever. Again, not a 5-star experience. Furthermore, our suite had a jacuzzi on the terrace. After a few days, the jacuzzi and the terrace became dirty, which is completely reasonable, since there were wind, swallows nesting on the roof and also some rain. Our suite always got cleaned very neatly and thoroughly, which we greatly appreciate. However, our terrace remained dirty and water became unclear. We had to request cleaning of the terrace and water replacement, which, at the end, was performed perfectly, however, again, it should not be the responsibility of a guest to remind the hotel staff about the cleaning. All in all, because of beautiful surroundings, nice suite, kind staff and amazing breakfasts, our stay was very good. However, to make our next stay a 5-star experience, several improvements need to be done.

This hotel could be great - location, views and garden are wonderful but it is let down by really dated, tired bedrooms (grand med), limited / average restaurant options - maybe this is Covid related, service while friendly is stretched and mostly non existent. In no way 5*.
