Hotel is very good located next to the beach with niki beach next to it. Food also is up to the mark. But the staff is the worst ever. My wife was there with some friends and the guy serving at the beach club could not stop trying on them and making inappropriate moves. When my wife and her friends...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW

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...

Great service, lovely garden, accessible beach - kid friendly. Onenegative was the limited range of options for food / restaurants in the hotel or for room service. I believe part of that was because we visiting during Easter (not peak season). Else definitely recommend for a nice family holiday. We used the SPA which is grossly overrated and overpriced. Overall...

We have now visited the Don Carlos several times. Great rooms and views; breakfast choice is extensive and enjoyable. All the staff we encountered were helpful, energetic and willing to please and make our stay enjoyable. The Manager remembered us from our previous visit which impressed us as there must be thousands of people who stay at the hotel. Location...

We stayed at this hotel for just one night to visit family in the area and from the minute we arrived to the time we checked out we could not fault the service, the food or the hotel - it was all excellent. The receptionist greeted us on arrival with a lovely smile and friendly manner - then we found...

We continue to spend a few days every year at the Don Carlos, our favourite hotel. Ideal for a quick break in the sun. The staff are most friendly and helpful, always a pleasant greeting and nothing is too much trouble. The food is first class, especially the breakfast and pool restaurant. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The...

We went along for a hydrotherapy session and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours of blissful relaxation. The place is what you want when feeling a little tired from overdoing the sangria and tapas . Highly recommended.

My partner and I booked a last minute stay at Don Carlos last weekend (31 March). We arrived at 10am in the morning and were greeted with champagne on arrival and given a key to our room straight away, great! We spent much of the weekend at the main pool, where the bar staff catered for our every need. I'd...

Stayed at the Don Carlos in a sea view room. The pool, beach and service were immaculate. The pool is heated but the beach was cold and the view was amazing. The resturant was good, the staff helpful and friendly. I had a great time and an amazing first impression of Marbella. I would go back again, hopefully soon.
