The Setting and Facilities are excellent here,especially if you stay at the hotel.The clay courts are very good, well maintained and play very well. The shop is useful and the staff that run the tennis and restaurant are very efficient and friendly.

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

I'm visiting the club quite often during the year since 2006 and after the great sporting conditions what they offer, then also the atmosphere and the Team is always really friendly and full of suprises! Today they had a Hallowen clubhouse with costumes, masks and even selfmade pumkin face etc. and soon will begin event for children from tennis school... More

Arrived for a three day trip with a friend 15 minutes after booking online. Weather was hot and so were we, and as we approached the reception, a nice looking woman in a beautiful dress greeted us with ice cold water. Our receptionist, Natasha was extremely helpful and friendly. As we entered the room we were both filled with awe.... More

We were offered an upgrade to the Oasis rooms when we arrived at Don Carlos on Friday morning. The normal rooms at Don Carlos are nice but once you have stayed in the Oasis rooms you won't want to stay in the old rooms. Amazing double shower, large balcony over looking the sea, lovely king size bed & lots of... More

Stayed for a three night break mid October with my daughter. We were upgraded to The Oasis and had a huge well appointed room with a beautiful sea view. Julia looked after us well and made dinner reservations at local restaurants as well as organising our airport transfer. This room came with complimentary use of the Beach Club but as... More

Nicely designed hotel. Correct staff, beautiful pool and garden. About 10km from the city center so a car is needed. Nice calm athmospere. 15€/day/person for a seaside sunbed is expensive however. Building is outdated but decoration and furniture are beautiful.
