Having stayed at the Don Pepe in 2008, my partner decided he wished to spend 5 nights here before his 60th birthday. On arrival on the 7th February we were greeted again with a warm welcome & complimentary cava & chilled water with lime. Just what we needed!
Our room on the 6th floor had wonderful views over the Straits of Gibraltar to Africa, The 'Rock' & Puerto Banus. The weather was very kind to us. Our room was very comfortable but had not been updated since our visit over 5 years previously. The views though from the balcony were great.
We had a leisurely lunch at the restaurant by the pool on two occasions. The service, food & 'nibbles' were excellent.
On two evenings we ate in the hotel restaurant. Although the steaks had to be returned as they weren't cooked as per our request, they were eventually cooked to our liking & were very tasty. Again the service was excellent.
One evening we ate at Cappuccino'. There was a lovely fire burning & the atmosphere was very cosy.
Breakfast was a lovely experience. The choice was excellent, as was the service.
Lluis, a lovely young member of staff, showed us a Junior Suite. This was very contemporary & twice the size of our room. The price to upgrade was rather expensive, but if you want to 'push the boat out', I would imagine this category of room would be worth the extra.
What makes the Don Pepe unique is the exceptional service. You would struggle to find service like this at many hotels today. I do think though that a little bit of 'TLC' needs to be given to the rooms other than the Junior Suites & above.
