We chose the Sol Don Marco for a 5 night New Year's Break in the sun ( we hoped !) The rooms were ready when we checked in with the exception of the double-bedded one for which we had to wait until after lunch time. This was on the top floor with a sea view and a sun terrace rather than a balcony. All 3 rooms were very comfortable with reasonable sized bathrooms.
The food offered at the breakfast and evening times was plentiful and gave a good choice for all. The restaurant was busy but if you varied your arrival there was always a table to be had. We had to search sometimes as we were a party of 6 but there was no great problem.
The New Year's Eve Gala Meal was excellent with a free bar and entertainment. This was €118 per person but was New Year after all.
The entertainment was varied both in style and location with the adjacent Don Pedro and Don Pablo hotels offering their lounges for clients rather than the Don Marco.
The clientele were mixed with " golden oldies" like our party and younger groups with quite a few families there. A good mix with some Americans being there for an extended vacation - and ,yes, the sun did shine throughout our stay - a welcome break from our miserable damp British weather.
There is a charge for Wi Fi which is offered free in some other Melia hotels.
Finally, the staff - nothing was too much for them with a pleasant attitude at all times. The bar staff and restaurant staff worked their socks off. Although the restaurant was self service, the staff were quick to clear tables and make things less cluttered. Bar service was provided by waiters as well as self service and were excellent at their job
We would return to the Don Marco without hesitation for the reasons given plus it's prime position opposite the beach. Very enjoyable.
