Finca Cortesin Hotel
The multi award-winning hotel, Finca Cortesin is a central feature of the Finca Cortesin Estate, turning it into the perfect resort and the ideal venue to host events. Harper’s Bazaar (UK), in June 2013 stated:
“A five-star rating does not do justice to the glorious grounds, stylish architecture and attentive sevices this 67-suite idyll to offer…”
The hotel is in a world of its own. It offers privacy,exclusivity and luxury and as described by the New York Times Style Magazine in 2010 is a ‘thoughtfully designed hotel that has become a hideout for high rollers and celebrities’.
The Hotel was designed by architects Roger Torras and Ignacio Sierra, the decor was designed by D, Duarte Ointo Coelho and the suites and bathrooms by Ana and Cristina Calderón. The style blends Andalucian traditional architecture with modern luxuries and concepts, with many Moorish influences and magnificent high ceilings. The hotel sits on the top of the hill and enjoys splendid views of the golf and sea.
The hotels is made up of two low-rise buildings and in total occupies 22,000 m2. The 67 suites range in size from 50- 200m2 and are designed to feel light, spacious and airy.
Golf Club and Golf Academy
The prestigious Finca cortesin Golf Course was designed by Cabell B. Robinson and landscaped by Gerald Huggan. The course opened in 2007 and since then has been host to the world famous Volvo World Match Play Championship Tournament for 3 years (2009, 2011 and 2012). The Finca Cortesin was ranked in the top 10 golf courses in Spain by the Golf Digest magazine in 2012. The finca Cortesin takes great pride in the maintenance and quality of its course.
The golf course occupies more than 70 hectares and measures over 6802 m from the back tees making it perfect for international golf competitions and has one of Europe’s longest layouts. The course is a par 72 making it a relatively demanding course and has 5 different tee positions.

As you enter, the decor is fresh but traditional.
