Fantastic hotel, excellent service, excellent food. Outside walkways and steep steps to promenade need improvement especially for older residents and families with push chairs. Also, a children's menu would be an advantage in Liqued Garden pool/bar restaurant.

Loved the hotel, family friendly, and the location is amazing too, down stairs u can find a place that rents stuff for outdoor activities, and many cafes and restaurants. It's a walk away also from Starbucks and the supermarket. The spa is good too. My only problem was that they didn't have a lifeguard at the pool or the beach!... More

Me, my husband and our two kids of 10 and 14 years stayed for a week at this hotel. We stayed at the rooms facing the mountain. Rooms were very clean and spacious, equipped with all necessities. For me the mattress was too hard, for my husband it was ok. A good selection of pillows was available on the bed.... More

Very good hotel and very friendly staff. The hotel has on every floor an ice maker machine - very good idea. Located at 6 km from Puerto Banus (aprox 15E in taxi one way) and 3 km to La Canada (commercial center - aprox 8 E one way in taxi). Very good the pool which is heated - not so... More

Fifth year coming here & it just gets better. The hotel is amazing but the staff just complete the experience. A special thank you to Abel, Anja, Yasmine & Rafa for making us feel at home. Maybe more savoury snacks in the red level lounge. We hope to come for many more years. Gareth & Katrina

My husband and I stayed at the Gran Melia Don Pepe late March 2015 (Easter holidays). We chose Gran Melia after staying at one of their resorts in Venice. We paid extra for the Red Level and it was definitely worth the extra money. The service was impeccable, we had a late flight home so the red level manager ensured... More
