We have just returned from a 3 night / 4 day break at the Don Carlos and it was excellent! The rooms are modern and well maintained (the beds are HUGE!), the resort is spotless and the Orange Beach Club is heaven! What really sets it apart though are the staff. Everyone we came across was polite and incredibly helpful.... More

As a regular visitor to the don carlos I was extremely happy to be offered a villa for our stay. The staff and accommodation were faultless and both my sister and I were overwhelmed with the outstanding facilities and service, they were exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate with booking again. See you next year!

The staff here is superb! I have traveled all over the world, and the staff here is one of the best. The hotel manager went above and beyond a few times to make sure our stay was enjoyable and perfect. The grounds are beautiful and should not be missed! Also try the outside Thai restaurant for dinner...great food. Only a... More

A short break with girlfriends, we found all we were looking for at the Don Carlos. Professional helpful staff dealt with all our requests swiftly and courteously - from ice and champagne glasses delivered to our rooms, to people carrier taxis, to extra towels as we showered on departure. Both pools are gorgeous, Orange Beach Club delightful, breakfasts amazing (including... More
