I stayed at the hotel for 1 week in May , and I must say that everything was perfect . The location is close to the casco antiguo and the constitution Park, where we find many playgrounds for our daughter. The service in the hotel was as I expected . The swimming pool , with sea water , is marvelous... More

A superb hotel for our honeymoon. The hotel ambiance, staff, facilities & weather made this a perfect setting. Definately recommended & we will return when we can. The red level service was a special touch.

We stayed at the Gran Melia Don Pepe over a long weekend with our two young kids. Overall the hotel is in very good beachfront location in walking distance (around 20 minutes) from the center of Marbella. The hotel is well maintained and has a very nice garden and pool. Decoration in the public areas of the hotel is nice... More

Just returned home after a week at the gorgeous Gran Melia Don Pepe. All of the staff, particularly Anja and Abel, made this holiday extra special. There was nothing they would not do if they could to make your visit perfect. Beautiful grounds, great location and very classy decor throughout. Red Level was worth the extra cost and the all...

2nd year running we have stayed.... this time in a mountain view room which was spacious and clean. There is a classy "oldy worldy" charm about this hotel which is hard to define, great location with exit directly through the cappuccino beach cafe which doubles for a cocktail bar as part of the hotel fronting onto the palm lined walkway...

I'm a new fan of Melia, but the Don Pepe disappointed me in that the hotel is schizophrenic. Some of the rooms are old, depressing in an 80s three-four star faded look. Others (the red level ocean suites) are new and very cool. The website, unfortunately, trumpets the new ones, and by the time I checked in and realised what... More

Excellent location on beachfront, great view, shame about the building work refurbishment at time over our stay would have been good to have known this before choosing hotel, but would definitely go back when finished as all improvements for the better. Not sure that the red level lounge was worth the extra and very quiet, also the red level room... More

I do not normally write reviews and the ONLY reason I am is to express our gratitude to the staff, particularly Abel (Manager) for their hospitality and attention to detail. Marbella was not our original destination and it is true to say that we were disappointed on arrival due to renovations which we had no idea were taking place. Although... More
