    Our opinion

    Finca Cortesin is an elegant hotel with plenty of special touches to guarantee an exclusive feel, perfect for a luxurious and relaxing holiday in a stunning location.

    Hotel description

    Not far from the romantic white-washed village of Casares, the five-star Finca Cortesin Hotel is an exclusive resort amid 215 hectares of manicured grounds on the Costa del Sol. With white-washed walls, terracotta tiles and shaded arcades, the style is of an oversized Andalucian villa within exotic gardens. The hotel’s overwhelming impression of space is paired with an ambience of refined luxury, built around two flower-filled courtyards which maximise sunlight and tranquillity. Beyond, views of the hotel’s manicured golf course boast a mountainous backdrop, while the Mediterranean Sea glistens in the other direction. The grounds feature four swimming pools including an infinity pool at the nearby Beach Club - a relaxing area just under 1 mile away which is served by a complimentary shuttle bus - and the indoor salt-water pool at the conservatory-like spa. Other facilities include Japanese thermal baths and a unique snow cave, as well as an 18-hole championship golf course which has been named one of the best in Europe. Interiors at the hotel subtly blend authentic Spanish design with Moorish influences with dark wood, vibrant fabrics and rich carpets as well as lofty ceilings and arches. Finca Cortesin Hotel is a suite-only property, offering complimentary amenities such as welcome drinks and tapas, fruit and hand-cut flowers. Each of the 67 suites has a private terrace with views over the mountains or golf course, while guests staying in Executive Suite and higher room categories can relax in a separate lounge area.The attention to detail continues in the dining venues: El Jardín de Lutz, Kabuki Raw and Don Giovanni. Serving Spanish, Japanese and Italian menus respectively, there is ample choice for the flavour of the evening, while The Blue Bar and Beach Club offer lighter bites and cocktail refreshments.

    Spain FAST FACTS

    the main gateway to Spain is Madrid’s Barajas airport, although many airlines serve other centres, particularly Barcelona, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Valencia.
    Euro (£1=1.24 Euros)
    195,000 sq miles
    46 million
    Average temperature
    Climate varies dramatically from region to region, with the meseta (high tableland of central Spain), Ebro basin and Andalucia scorching in summer (up to 45 degrees Centigrade), cold and dry in winter. The Mediterranean coast and Balearic Islands get a little more rain than Madrid, and the south can be even hotter in summer. The Mediterranean, particularly around Alicante, also provides Spain’s warmest waters (reaching 27°C or so in August). Barcelona’s weather is typical of the coast – milder than in inland cities but more humid.
