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.

We have just spent a two week holiday at the Don Carlos after a not so good one 3 years ago. This time all was very good with fantastic staff to match the fantastic facilities of this lovely hotel. The Terasse Bar is wonderful and the entertainment which is now much more Spanish style is just perfect for this setting.... More

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

We stayed at the Don Carlos Hotel for 14 days in July 2015. The standards in this hotel are very high, the staff are very helpful and friendly and the buffet breakfast is excellent. We stayed on a Bed/Breakfast basis. Our only reservation is the position of the hotel, guests with limited mobility problems will have difficulties going to the... More

We had a lovely family break at Don Carlos. Any issues we had were swiftly sorted out by the truly wonderful Irene Lopez. She is a real asset to the management team and clearly knows what customers want. Close to Marbella and the Port this is a perfect location to relax rewind and enjoy!
