We had a 4 day stay at Don Carlos in December with our two toddlers. Hotel staff especially Mayte went out of her way to make it enjoyable. The resort has everything we needed so we hardly needed to leave. A real 5 star experience!!!

I recently stayed at the Don Carlos for a two night trip when on a personal journey out of season visit. The bedroom was nicely finished and clean as were the public areas. Although closed when I was in Marbella, the hotel appears to offer good facilities including nice gardens and beach for seasonal family visits. Restaurant service was a... More

The newer part of the hotel (oasis section) is nicely decorated and the rooms quite good, particularly the bathrooms. Good sea-view if you take on the south-facing side . The older part is just that , old . Good value if you can travel off-peak , otherwise would consider it over-priced . Breakfast is fine but not 5 star material... More

Nice hotel, very friendly staff. Delicious Cocktails and a very beautiful an naturally big garden. The beds on the beach are very stylish but a little expensive. The beach is clean and beautiful. In summer its a little loud because next to the hotel beach is the famous nikki beach, which plays loud music.

I visited Don Carlos tennis club (did not stay at the hotel) with my friends for an extended weekend and we had great time. The set up is perfect: 7 clay courts which were in good shape, a cosy club house with nice terrace and most of all, extremely helpful and kind staff. The view from the courts and from... More

Best luxury stay we have ever had! Absolutely fantastic standard, service and surroundings. The Villa section, of the luxury resort Don Carlos, is discretely hidden away like a small paradise, with all the services and comfort you can think of! The practical and very spacious two bedroom Villa worked out perfectly with the family using the two bedrooms and two... More

Stayed here two nights. Location is a bit out of the way to central Marbella and Puerto Banus, but nice area and beach. Rooms were nicely decorated, good size, with a wonderful view of the water. Service was personal and top notch. Check out the bar patio. Can't rate the food, since I didn't take any meals there. You can't... More
