We are regular visitors to Don Carlos and this time stayed for 3 nights in a Marbella view room. We are never disappointed with what this hotel has to offer, from the lush manicured tropical gardens to the nicely appointed rooms with great views. What I think sets this Hotel apart from the rest is the very high levels of... More

All the glowing reviews about the Don Carlos are true. The service is fantastic, the location is great and the pools and facilities excellent. The refurbished Beach Club should open in May and this will be special providing it’s next-door neighbor Nikki Beach keeps the noise down. It’s not cheap but then you know that when you book and when... More

What a lovely hotel Don Carlos is. The style is very nice, the rooms were nice and clean. The food was good aswell so was the bar. The location is great, exactlly near The beach and not far away from down town. The pool was nice and clean and the kids had fun.

I have written reviews on the Don Carlos Hotel before, the last one citing the drop off service and attention and there was some significant issues with the food. Just back from the hotel after the Easter break recently and wow! They have gone all out on service, I don't think I have met nicer people in a hotel environment,... More

It is amazing how this resort keeps improving, in all ways. I come every year, two or three times, for business and family trips, and everytime I take back home with me a better experience.

We spend a week here and loved every minute of it. The hotel is well maintained and the landscape is beautiful. We found the location to be great as Morocco and Gibraltar weren't too far away if you wanted to go down there to explore. Plenty of golf courses around and great shopping in Puerto Banus. I would highly recommend... More
