This is the second time I've stayed here in as many months. Although the Don Carlos looks like a throw back to the 60's it is anything but when you're inside. Although I've only stayed in the Oasis, which is well worth the additional expense and much more contemporary, sun beds around the main pool were both comfortable and available.... More

First time in Marbella and I will be back. This place is amazing!!! From the spacious rooms and the pools and beach access. Everything was 5*****. The food and drinks were just as amazing as the staff and service!!! The weather wasn't bad either...

I'll start by saying I really liked this place. Our reservation had been slightly messed up and we got two twin beds instead of a double. However the brilliantly named Happy Making Team arrived within minutes to efficiently sort everything out. From the extensive breakfast buffet with made-to-order omelettes, to the lush tropical garden and the lazy Orange Beach Club,... More

In August last year 35+ people would be travelling to the Don Carlos Resort in Marbella for my uncles 60th birthday celebrations. We had spent over £1,000 per family to book in a room in the don carlos a year in advance. When we all had arrived the reception could not find any rooms and took 15/30 minutes to check... More

We stayed at don Carlos for three days while working in our new apartment. We had heard a lot about the hotel and had several friends stay here before us. The hotel is old but pretty cool architecture! Big open spaces, huge park area with sculptures and pathways, trees and flowers. Tennis courts and beach club is nice. There is... More

Beautiful hotel in every sense, the service, staff, facilities and atmosphere.. Superb! Should be rated 10/10 The only drawback is the africans selling stuff at beach, they are rude, and very annoying- we complained to hotel but nothing much they can do.

I arrived with a group of 11 friends to celebrate my 50th birthday! From the moment we arrived at Don Carlos we were treated like VIPS!! Esther Lopez had it all covered! From a glass of Sparkling Cava to Balloons & Cake we were truly spoilt, Esther went the extra mile and nothing was too much trouble. The Hotel itself... More

We stayed here as a couple for a long weekend... We originally checked into the main hotel and were shown to a room with two tiny twin beds..... We complained and they advised always request a king bed when you book.. Worth noting!! So we asked for another room and the only other they had was a suite in the... More

I brought my daughter and her friend here for 3 nights to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday. When we got there, Esther Lopez had arranged for balloons and birthday cake in our room as a surprise!

Our stay at the don carlos was excellent! From the minute we arrived to the minute we left. We had surprises every day in our room. Esther from the happy making team did a superb job at organising me a surprise meal for my fiancé. They vouldnt of helped enough!! The gardens & pools were great. Lovely chilled out holiday!
