Breakfast was above average ,... More

Our family had a fantastic vacation! Almost all facilities were beautiful and well maintained. The Red Velvet Staff was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. The amenities were fun and inviting and the restaurants served delicious food. Loved the location. One area of improvement is that they need to update and remodel the fitness center and definitely add air conditioning. It... More

Get a room with a view of the back of the hotel's grounds, pool and the Mediterranean. A stay at this hotel is a variation of the spectacular, in a positive sense. It's colors, vibes, restaurants and Costa de Sol seaside ambiance will make you want to extend your stay.

We stayed 3 nights over this weekend. The room was somewhat small especially the bathroom but clean and the bed was very comfortable. The air conditioning was working but we could not reach a desired temperature so not sure what it would be like in the heat of the summer The T bone restaurant was not open in the main... More

During the lovely month of May,I stayed at the 5 star deluxe DON PEPE in the centre of Marbella. Firstly I have to say, that it was a 5 star deluxe property, but the rates reflected that-I guess the old addage " one gets what one pays for" is apt in this case. Generally the rooms were excellent, (albeit a... More

We loved this hotel. Great bed, very clean. Right on beach and wonderful pools. Definitely would come back! Loved walking the boardwalk with all the cafes. Would be great for a family vacation, also. Won't go wrong. Food was very good and service was very nice.

Although this hotel was built in the sixties, it is still remarkably fresh. Rooms are modern and very comfortable, the pool area is exceptionally clean with "beautiful" people lounging around, enjoying top class service. The "T-Bone" restaurant doesn't sound exciting, but the food is magnificent - the best foie gras I've had in ages. We only stayed two night, while... More

Don Pepe cannot compete with Asian resorts. Food is regular, particularly for breakfast and pool bar lunches. Pool would certainly require more staff for service and more "hamacas" for guests. Pool is not the quieter I know (compare for instance with Elba in Estepona). It could be bad luck to be with guests behaving as you could expect in a... More
