Just got back from a six-day long stay at the Don Carlos Leisure Resort and Spa. My husband and I spent the entire time lounging by the pool or heading down to the hotel's beach club. Marbella can be crowded and, quite frankly, a bit tacky. But this resort is quiet and the beach was uncrowded despite it being high... More

He showed us all the installations and escorted us to the room. Once in the room,... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, the location is far from Marbella old town and Porto Banus, it's about 20 minutes drive on the highway. However if you have a car you can manage otherwise each taxi trip is 30 euros. The grounds are really nice, very green and well maintained, the hotel has 2 pools but unfortunately... More

Dear Olga, Thank you very much for your comments. They help us to improve our service and guests experience. In regards of the Beach Club sun bed, we have already change them, we did it last week.

Came here with a group of friends and had a splendid moment there. The hotel is very comfortable, good size of rooms, very clean, the swimming pools are perfect, one great for people who like to really swim, the other more for children or just to cool down in the water while having a drink on the beach chairs around....

Beautiful resort with direct beach access and sumptuous garden. nice and big rooms. family friendly. very dedicated staff. rich and healthy breakfast. only smaller issues were noisy neighbors because of less than soundproof connecting doors and some strange odors in the room. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Beautiful resort and facilities. Standard room is nice but basic. If you want something more spacious, consider upgrading. We had a snafu with an early breakfast room service not being delivered. Front desk personnel attended to it as soon as informed and Adrienne did his best to make us happy with a departure gift. Nice place to stay on the... More

Have just had a wonderfull week at this resort. Don Carlos has (almost) everything. We stayed at rooms in the 13 story high building - one room facing Malaga, one room facing Marbella. Both rooms very good views, the one facing Marbella slightly better. The rooms are large and spacious, and the service impeccable. The breakfast is above standard and... More
