We stayed at the Don Pancho for a week in July and loved it. I won't repeat stuff that other people have said, but just add a few comments about some details which made it good for us.
Our room was on the 10th floor and I think it must have been a re-furbished it all seemed new and clean. Two pillows each if you needed them. Blanket each in case you're a bit chilly with the air con on at night. Very useful fridge with a few hotel drinks in, but plenty of room for your own stuff with no obligation to use theirs. There was a pool bar, but the waiters didn't patrol the pool area so no problem if you want to drink your own. Pool towels are provided from reception if you want for a 7 euro deposit each which you can change daily if you want to. No problem at all with sunbeds. Yes, there are a few people who queue on the chairs by the door because they want a particular area, but we never queued and always got one. As long as you're down before about 10.00 am you should be OK. In the lounge in the evening where the very relaxing musicians were 6 nights a week, we used to come out of the dining room, absolutely full and not needing a drink just yet. We were approached by a waiter, told him we were OK for drinks for a while, and he would put a couple of drinks mats in front of us saying 'no more waiters will bother you'. Very nice touch. When we did feel ready for a drink, if you tell them you are residents you are asked for your room number, this goes onto the bill which you sign and then you are charged much less than the prices on the bar drinks menu. This also goes for the pool bar and drinks at the table in the dining room. It means no money is changing hands so you don't feel obliged to tip unless you particulrly want to. We made a note of everything we had and the bill we were presented with when we checked out on the last day was spot on. We liked that we could sit anywhere we wanted in the dining room and also that they enforced the rule about long trousers being compulsory for men in the evening. Food was lovely every meal time. Can't fault this hotel really and will definitely be going back.
