We have stayed in the Don Pepe about six times and we are never disappointed. Perfect location, great rooms, lovely pool & grounds, amazing breakfast selection. It is a wee bit on the pricey side but worth it. Will return.

This hotel is in a good location. It is next to the beach and a 20 minute walk into the old town. The room was spacious and clean although we did not have a balcony the mountain view was nice. We had the red level package so we could sit out on the red level terrace overlooking the sea at... More

This hotel and its staff are truly outstanding. Our welcome had to be the best welcome I have ever received in any hotel that I have stayed in. The Red Level staff were polite, courteous and hospitable, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was immaculately clean with beautiful public areas, bars restaurants had stylish comfortable furniture and décor. The... More

My family of four spent about three weeks in Germany and Spain. By far, this was our best stop (8 days). The hotel was nice departure from other standoffish luxury hotels in Europe. The sea side room have unbelievable views and the premium is certainly well deserved. This hotel served as an excellent base to drive to places such as... More

The hotel itself seems a little dated but it is still very luxurious. The breakfast is seriously delicious ad there are lots of hot and cold options. The food at the pool bar was average, small and very expensive. The sushi/Italian restaurant downstairs is much better although still quite expensive, which is normal for a 5 star hotel. We have...

We stayed at the Don Pepe for a week at the end of May. Having stayed at Gran Melia hotels before, we expected a high standard and we were not disappointed. The grounds are kept immaculate as is the pool area. The staff are professional and efficient in all areas and the cleanliness and room facilities are very good together... More

We spent several nights here in appalling weather being subjected to torrential rain until our last day when the sun shone strongly. The weather didn't spoil our romantic stay though and we particularly enjoyed wandering around the old town trying out various bars and restaurants. I would love to return for a longer stay and hopefully some better weather.

We just returned from a 6 day vacation at the Gran Melia Don Pepe in Marbella. Unfortunately the beginning of our trip was marred by Air France losing our luggage for 2 1/2 days! The hotel front desk staff could not have been more helpful. They called the airlines many times during those first 2 days to follow up with... More
