3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was there on Easter vacation with my family in April. The reception was good and the room spacious with beach view, but I cannot recommend Baia restaurant at all due to very unprofessional service which managed to destroy our (until then) a nice evening. I find the hotel both overrated and overpriced.

Front desk and concierge staff were very nice and efficient. Same for restaurant / bars crew. Rooms are spacious and aligned with a 5* to some extent, great views over the garden and the Mediterranean (the one I stayed in). Sleep quality is OK, no noise. Cleanliness is very good. The inner surroundings are very nice, wonderful garden and the... More

Large facility with many services and amenities. Off the beaten track. Beautiful view and the garden is superb. Swimming pool nice and warm and very large. Food outstanding. They have done a fine job of keeping this hotel up to date.

The problem with the Don Carlos has always been that if you didn't want to stay in an eighties tower block and you didn't want to rent a villa then the hotel was very limited. Problem solved! The hotel has recently added some lovely new ultra modern rooms in a new block called The Oasis. The rooms are very nicely... More

Stayed at the Don Carlos with the kids aged 12 and 15 We were attracted by the tennis facilities which were superb. If you like clay courts you will love these perfectly groomed facilities...with a sea view. The hotel at first sight was disappointing as the outside architecture is a little 'seventies' style but first impressions can be misleading. Inside... More

The villas also benefit from private terraces with outdoor furniture and a private shared pool which we enjoyed. The very best thing about the villas however is that they come with the... More
