“Very good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Just back after a week in the Don Pedro and it rained nearly all the time ,had the odd bit of sunshine but in Spain you need the sun to enjoy the lovely beaches and walks along the very well kept promenade.
The hotel was clean and comfortable ,we stayed half board but we thought the breakfast was better than the dinner .Entertainment was ok and there was a lot of dancing if you like that sort of thing. We went to Granada for a day with coach tour organised by hotel and it was well worth it, the Alhambra Palace is not to be missed ,the sun even came out while we were there.There is a lift up to the old town in Torremolinos and we found it very helpful as the train station is up there and handy for day trips to Malaga and the Parque La Bateria only one stop away well worth a visit .Hotel and area great and there is a very good fish restaurant opposite the hotel on the beach, they cook the fish outdoors on a big barbecue .

Dear almg,
Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay so much despite the weather. It is great that you ventured out all the same and discovered how much there is to see here and how easy it is to get around.
More importantly you ordered an "espeto de sardinas" in one of the chiringuito beach restaurants: A Malaga classic and delicious with a cold beer or a glass of white!
I hope that we see you again soon with some normal weather.
Kind regards,

Room Tip: rooms on the sunny side are more expensive

Dear granjero201263,
Thank you for writing up your review on TA. I am glad that you enjoyed the Don Pedro and that the service was good. The rooms in the Don Pedro are the smallest of the three in the Sol Don Hotels complex, so you could try either the Don Pablo or the Don Marco next time.
I hope that we see you again in the future. Thanks again for writing a review.
Kind regards,

My wife and I are just back from our 1st visit to the Don Pedro, 26th Feb. to 5th March. Rooms are a little smaller than we are used to but adequate and very clean. We had a basic room with side see view. If you want a pool view you must pay extra. We could use the facilities of all 3 Dons, Don Pedro, Don Pablo, Don Marco. We found the atmosphere in the Don Pedro to be very good and all the staff very friendly. The food on average was very good with some nights better than others, the same with the entertainment, good most nights. There is a good animation team during the day and a lovely bowling green which is free. Nice pools including indoor. Lovely walks in the area including nice walk to the Botanic Gardens with free entry. We enjoyed our stay even though the weather was not great and will return to Don Pedro later in the year.

Room Tip: If you want sunny balcony pay for pool view.

Dear Libertyboy,
I am so glad that you enjoyed the Don Pedro. It is a shame that you hit a bad patch of weather because there is no doubt that it makes a difference - especially if you want to be out exploring the area. There are lots of nice walks to be done; even up into the mountains behind Torremolinos where there are some well-marked trails and spectacular views.
We look forward to seeing you back with some sunshine next time.
Best regards,

Stayed here 11th to 15th February 2013, my double room on the second floor was used for single occupancy. Arrived around 10 am and pleasantly surprised at the easy check in and that my room was ready.
The room was accessed by one of several lifts and while not huge was plenty big enough with a flat screen TV, plenty of wardrobe space with complementary use of a safe, the instructions were for using a metal key which I guess was the old room door key but pressing a few buttons with a little trial and error worked fine, the door keys are now the usual plastic cards. One item missing was a luggage rack for my suitcase,
Bathroom was great, containing a proper full size bath, not one of the usual small ones where you sit with your knees under your chin, a good selection of cosmetic items were available and nicely presented, including a comb, also, plenty of clean towels. Housekeeping was carried out every day, a pleasant lady not only made my bed, changed the towels and emptied the trash, she also brushed and mopped the tile floors thus ensuring that the room was very clean.
My stay was on a bed and breakfast basis and breakfast was really good, the selection included meats, cheese, fresh fruits, fresh breads, butter, jams and marmalade, croissants, juice, various teas and coffee and availabilty for a full cooked breakfast including toast, various eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, tomatoes etc, a really good choice which was self service.
Entertainment was available most nights in Don Pedro or one of the connecting hotels, also happy hour for extra drinks after 5pm.
Very close to the beach, swimming pools set in most pleasant gardens and very close by are bars, restaurants and shops together with a conveniently placed ATM, free car parking was also available, the location was excellent.
Good value and a pleasant stay, my only criticism being that if people in the room above are early risers, you can hear them walking about and moving furniture, the remedy, ask for a room on the top floor!
The clientele consisted of mostly older people, all in all, a pleasant stay, good value and I would definately stay here again

Room Tip: You can pay extra for a room with sea view but the best tip is to ask for a top floor room.

Dear Chris H,
I am delighted that your stay was all that you hoped for. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. One small note is that the safe is not complementary - there is a daily charge of 2€. A key is required to activate the electronic keypad and I imagine that the last guest failed to remove it from the inside of the door! I don't want any future guests (or you) to be dissappointed.
Kind regards,

Arrived on feb the 7th 2013, We stayed half board and the menu was much the same as when we previously stayed in the don pablo, Lots of choice and cooked in front of you, For us as a couple in our 40,s we realised at this time of the year the other guests are mostly somewhat older then us and we were more than happy with that, Although the entertainment by night is not geared for our age group we enjoyed it , By day my wife did the dance and keep fit classes and we both had a laugh playing the darts , We also used the heated indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi, Not bad for the month of february. As for the rooms and the bed we were very happy with both, We have stayed in the complex in the summer months also and it is the ideal place to relax or to have a good time as there are so many different pool areas and bars to go to, Most importantly the staff, Our rooms were cleaned every day , The restaurant , Reception and bar staff were fantastic, I cannot praise the staff in the pedro and pablo enough for the hard work they put in , One of the female bar staff though I did not get her name deserves particular praise, She waited on the tables in the bar in the pedro and served behind the bar in the pablo , Her friendliness towards the customers was obviously second nature to her and I thank her for that, The location of the pedro is perfect if planning a walk down the paseo also, Thanks for a verry pleasent stay and will see you soon, Regards Cumnor.

Arrived here 3rd feb couple, we checked in and was allowed to room early, reception staff didn't explain about safe you have to put key inside staff don't ask..... Or that if your half board you can eat either breakfast/dinner or breakfast/evening meal which we only found out on 5th day, room was small beds uncomfortable we had 2singles pushed together I did ask for double room staff said none available although hotel didn't seem full, evening meals lovely fresh cooked meats carved in front of you beef pork chicken fish salads and veg plus the normal chips pasta pizza etc, I personally enjoy eating out breakfast repetitive but I must say kitchen staff and man asking room number at entrance to resturant fantastic, the hotel is made up of 3 macro pedro Pablo, macro is the modern hotel, the hotel grounds well maintained what more do you want for £580.00 half board for a week in feb, the weather was 20c bonus night time very cold and also this time of year not many bars resturants open in area but try la rumba on front fantastic fresh food recommend half roast chicken, and for a sandwich fresh and tasty, the bar was expensive inside hotel but so is most of malaga for ale/food.... Beach front literally 30seconds walk out of back entrance, I personally won't go back as the hotel this time of year was full of Germans/ French who think they run the place, and all over 65 so entertainment to there age, it may seem like I'm moaning but for me a comfy double bed and helpfull staff make you wanna return to hotels this is not the case here, 1 resturant 3hotel bare tha in mind

Deat Millieliverpool,
Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent holiday.
I am sorry that you felt that there was a lack of information at the check-in. We try to get across the most important information when guests arrive whilst attempting to avoid information overload! In a complex of three hotels there is so much to inform about and our experience is that too mcuh information not only slows down the check-in process but also means that guests don't really remember anything. We have a directory in the room which is designed to fill in the gaps.
At the time of your stay the Don Pedro hotel was about 60% full. In winter we have a predominance of couples and so it is possible that only twin rooms were available. I am sorry that we could not provide the type of bed that you would have preferred. If there had been double beds available we wouldn't have hesitated to offer you one.
Our winter clientelle is generally made up of retired guests including mostly Italians, Canadians, Belgians, Germans and 30% British. There are also a few Spaniards and other nationalities. Many of the winter guests come every year and know eachother from previous years. Guests tend to enjoy the variety of nationalities in the hotel as it means that no one nationality predominates.
I am glad to read that you enjoyed the buffet, the service and the beautiful grounds leading to the sea front and it is satisdfying to see that you found it great value for money.
Thanks again for taking the time to write your report.
Kind regards,
