This is 5 star hotel - with excellent view around and easy access to Nicky Beach! It's located on the hill and bit away from shops and restaurants! But If you planned to stay for Weekends beside swimming pools and relax - this place is excellent! Heating Swimming Pool with 27 degrees Celsius and fresh Sungria - what can be...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed April 13, 2017

We spent 5 nights in the lovely Don Carlos just outsid Marbella. Despite a downturn in the weather ( drop in tempereatures and windy) we enjoyed every minute of the experience. Our deluxe room in the tower block originally did not have the sea view but the helpful and friendly receptionist offered us another (at a cost) which gave us...

I wouldn't highly recommend but would recommend this hotel. Why? Great rooms, great pools and the food is excellent in the restaurants. Only thing it is hidden in Elveria and not Marbella. Plus the restaurants nearby serve better food. It's a huge hotel!!!

Just spent 2 days at a conference here with a weekend break bolted on the front. Very pleasant stay, attentive helpful staff, nice al fresco breakfast area with a great variety on offer, fantastic pool, 5 minute walk to the beach, good business facilities, spacious room, several really good restaurants near by. Would def use again.

This is a really nice hotel but I don't think it's deserving of its 5 star rating. The positive aspects are the internal reception area and lobby are beautiful and modern. There's a really good choice at the breakfast buffet and the food around the pool is good too. Our daughter loved the children's play park that's located right next...

We booked just 4 nights in the hotel with our family with 2 small children but we extended our stay and booked 10 nights extra. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. We travel a lot so we are able to compare to other hotels, Don Carlos is one of the best experiences from the last years. Irritation level...
