Official TUI Rating

Perched on a sand and shingle beach and within 17 acres of peaceful gardens is the Ikos Andalusia. This is located near Estepona on the Costa Del Sol in Spain. It is around a 10-minute drive to Estepona’s centre and around 15 minutes to Marbella. In Estepona, you can expect whitewashed houses that line the narrow cobbled streets with a mountain backdrop. It’s a great place to visit with Spanish tapas, shops, cocktail bars and a pretty marina. It also has an excellent Blue Flag beach. Malaga Airport is an 80-minute drive from the hotel.


The Ikos Andalusia has a great choice of pools with 9 in total. There are a few smaller pools clustered together in the central courtyard and an indoor heated pool at the spa. One of the pools is just steps away from a sand and shingle beach. All pools are lined with sunbeds and parasols plus there is a kid’s pool. If you opt for a deluxe room there is also a separate area for you to enjoy. At the beach, there is a section of shoreline that is reserved just for guests of the hotel.
