On the plus side, the reception staff are fantastic, they are efficient and organised and always with a smile. The house keeping... More

We were lucky enough to have been booked into the deluxe villas in the Don Carlos Hotel, where there is an amazing team of personal assistants that look after you minute by minute and have a link to your own mobile phone. Maria and Fernando were so attentive and made our 4 day stay in the hotel quite memorable. The... More

We love this hotel it's beautiful and the staff are very friendly in general. The beach club is equally lovely but this year the pool appeared very tired. The tiles around the edge were filthy in large section and lots of the tiles were cracked it's such a shame because otherwise it's always been lovely in the past.
