“It feels like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We have been regular visitors to this hotel for many years. We use it for a base to get out and spend time in the local area. The hotel`s central location makes this very easy. The staff are friendly and helpful, my husband is blind and they always give him the same room so that he can find his way around. He thoroughly enjoys the spa.
There are three hotels in the complex and so the range of facilities is good. We use the other hotels in the complex when we take our grandchildren on holiday, and we have never been disappointed.
We are eagerly looking forward to our next visit

Room Tip: If you choose a room on the first floor you are next to a lovely pool and the bridge to the rest of...

After one of the longest Winters we can remember we were really looking forward to this early summer break, am pleased to report that the Hotel and staff at the Sol Don Marco did not let us down in any way whatsoever. The Hotel is situated on a prime site right on the beach, coupled with the facilities within the hotel complex you would have difficulty in finding a better location. We found that there was always a very good choice of food to suit all tastes at the buffet restaurant. Our room was maintained to a very high standard, with bed linen and towels changed on a regular basis. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and we shall certainly be going back later in the year.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with afternoon sun

This hotel is well situated on the beach. It has numerous pools, all very well maintained. The breakfast is plentiful, varied and well prepared. I am a regular visitor to this hotel and recommend it without hesitation

Room Tip: Room with a view of the sea is worthwhile

Stayed February 2013: We had a great time, booked a sea view room but any room would have done. During the week we were probably the youngest there but at the weekend somewhere in the middle of the age range (in our mid 50s). Buffet restaurant was good especially for breakfast and included Cava but sausages could at times be interesting, spicy sausage anyone? We choose b&b but found restaurant choice outside hotel to be limited due to off season but we always managed to find something. We ate at hotel buffet one night and were charged around €40 each so it would nearly have been cheaper to have booked AI and only eat there occasionally. Drinks are not included at the buffet except for tea/coffee (from machines) and juices at breakfast, the coffee machines were covered in the evening. choice was good if a bit vague ie fish dish didn't say anything other than fish. In Feb only the inside pool was open, but rest looked pretty. loads to do on site, free wi-fi downstairs

Dear peapod1956,
Thanks for taking the time to write your thorough review on Trip Adviser. I am so glad that you enjoyed it and hope that you come back again. As you note, in winter we have a mostly retired clientele and the average age gets progressively younger as the seasons move towards summer!
I am very surprised to hear you say you were charged 40€ each for an evening meal. The buffet price for those that have not pre-booked is 21€ per person. I hope that there has not been a mistake.
Kind regards,

We came back a week ago from another excellent holiday at this group of hotels, Don Pedro, Don Marco, Don Pablo and again were not disappointed. We have holidayed here before and always find the cleanliness of the hotels, restaurants, pools and public areas to be good and always seems have ongoing maintenance though never enough to trouble the guests. There is always plenty of sunbeds and plenty of areas to stretch out as well as a choice of pools. They have a good towel hire for the pool areas, this saves costly space in your suitcase. The food is good, sometimes a bit repetative but you can always find something to your liking. You can also eat in the other restaurant for a change. Daytime activities and evening shows are ample for a relaxed break in the sun and local transport is on hand for trips further afield. The 3 hotels are on the promanade across from the beach where there are bars & restaurants and a couple of good Irish Bars nearby. There is a mini club but I would say there is perhaps not enough here for an older child or teenagers The staff are excellent and always willing to help wherever possible. We will be back again in July

Thanks for taking the time to write your report on TA maureen s. I am glad to see that you enjoyed another holiday at the Sol Don Hotels. It is very satisfying to have repeat guests and we hope that we manage to keep satisfying you.
Last year we added a new element to our summer entertainment programme as a result of guests' comments. As well as the Mini Club (5-12 year-olds) we have added the Teenager Club. It is more informal and is really deigned to bring the teenagers together to play a bit of sport and get to know eachother. It worked very well last year and we will reintroduce it for the school holidays this year.
Thanks again for your report and your repeat custom.
Kind regards,

After two previous visits we decided it would be an ideal hotel complex to take our two daughters and their families, which included five grand-children aged 10 to 3 years old; to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary year. The reason for our choice was the excellent location opposite the beach and close to local shops and bars; the variety of swimming pools, including indoor; excellent food choice; onsite entertainment both day and night; cleanliness of the complex and last but least the friendly and efficient service given by the staff.

We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful holiday at the complex and mainly due to the fact that each families needs could be met within the hotels. For example, one family enjoyed the beach while the other enjoyed the pools. This variety meant that eveybodies requirements for a good holiday were met. We would highly recommend this complex for families and couples alike. Thanks to Sol Hotels and their staff.

Room Tip: Book early for the family rooms in the Don Pedro they are the best in the complex.

Just recently home from Torremolinos and our favourite hotel Sol Don Marco. The Marco is one of three Sol hotels on the same complex and the restaurants (2) and facilities of the three hotels can be used by all residents. Our favourite is the Marco - quiet, 4 levels and no problem with lifts. The room is excellent - balcony, fridge, TV , BBC1/Sky, c/heating or air/con depending on season, security safe. Bathroom with bath and walk in shower cubicle, piping hot water. Bedding and good supply of towels changed regularly if not daily. Room cleaned every day. Restaurants (buffet) have an extensive choice and you will never leave unsatisfied. All staff are efficient, helpful and friendly and many are pleased to see us return. The manager Jaime Floyer is extremely pleasant and has been very kind to us. The complex is immaculate, well maintained and a pleasure to be in. For those who wish, there are activities during the day and some excellent entertainment at night. The complex is well situated, 50 metres to walkway and beach. You can walk in either direction and all the way to the Marina in Benalmadena if you like to walk. There are many cafes, beach cafes, small shops with larger shops in the street San Miguel heading towards the bull ring and the weekly market. We have been going to the Marco for many years and as you can tell, we love it ! My wife and granddaughter are heading there on June 5 and she and I will return later in the year when the summer heat has subsided.
Try it, you will not be disappointed !
