Fantastic stay at the Red level in Don Pepe. Amazing sea view room, always enough sun beds, all day snacks and drinks at the Red level lobby.. Extremely happy with the place! Breakfast was really good too as well as dinner at the restaurants. Perfect location - close to town. Staff was so helpful and polite. The star of the... More

We had an enjoyable break at this hotel, the bathroom leaves something to be desired, and the service round the pool was not very good. But everybody was friendly and if there was a problem they did their best to fix it. We would consider going back there again

Having visited the Don Pepe earlier this year, my planned return visit in September can't come quick enough! This is my absolute favourite place to be for many different reasons. From the moment you arrive at the hotel the feeling is one of instant relaxation and happiness. There are a number of factors that create these feelings, the gardens, the... More

Awesome vacation. Expensive, but to me worth it when compared with neighbouring hotels. The area is clean, well kept and at the quieter end of the boardwalk, however all other areas were walkable. We also chartered a sailing yachy via Marbella Yachy Charters which we would totally recommend. Pete the skipper was fabulous. A trip to remember.

Having travelled the world on business for some years, and given the amount that were charged, I have to say that we were a little disappointed with this hotel. The trouble is that if you want a quality beachfront hotel within walking distance from the Marbella Old Town then this is one of the few feasible options. It is conveniently... More

A fabulous hotel to stay for a relaxing few days break. The hotel grounds are wonderful, and breakfast a real highlight. The hotel is in a great location too. Would highly recommend. Was our 2nd stay and we enjoyed it just as much.

3rd visit to the Gran Melia Don Pepe, staying again in a Red Level sea view room. Why do I return? Its location? yes, 10 min walk to Marbella, sea front location etc, the views? yes, Marbella, Puerto Banus and Africa on a clear day all from your balcony, but it is not this that keeps me returning. Its the... More

I just wanted a quick break with the children to Southern Spain. Had an idea that I wanted to be in the Marbella area and found the Hotel Gran Melia Don Pepe. Perfect is the best word I can find to describe the trip. The 3 of us were in one room and that was great. It was a supreme... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Don Pepe and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Red Level accommodations and amenities are fantastic. The view from the Red Level Lounge is lovely. The breakfast and the restaurant at the beach and the oyster bar in the lobby are delicious. The Red Level staff are absolutely some of the nicest hotel staff that... More
