We had lovely dinners 3 times at Bahia. The food was delicious and the service provided by Cristina, Said and Gomez was excellent. Thank you very much😀 We had different courses but especially the Chateubriand and the fish curry was something special.

Don Carlos is my favorite hotel in Marbella. Just came back from a 10 days stay there. The tropical garden, staff, breakfast, pools, rooms - everything to top rating. The sunbeds at the beach are free of charge for the hotel guests. We had connecting rooms at the 12th floor - very quiet and had a nice view.

The Don Carlos is a large hotel with excellent facilities. The beach club which is a short walk away is lively and entertaining although very expensive. Rooms are modern and have all the facilities you need. The bar and dance area is great in the evening although again drinks are very expensive. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay... More
