This place is incredible, the moment you walk in you are welcomed by genuine and friendly staff. I highly recommend to stay in a level room with sea view, it’s amazing to wake up with that view every morning and enjoy your coffee on the balcony watching the sunrise. The hotel is

This hotel is in a beautiful location and the pool / grounds excellent. Staff were attentive. Rooms okay but make sure you get a view. The downside is the food. I had a club sandwich which was cooked hours earlier with cold (obviously reheated) fries and the breakfast is trul

Dear Mr. Roy3007, I would like to thank you for taking the time to share with us and the TripAdvisor community your experience in Gran Meliá Don Pepe. We would honestly like to apologize for the inconveniences experienced with our facilities. Our passion for service and will to provide a high quality time to our guests from the very first moment of arrival left us feeling really disappointed for not having met your expectations. In reference to the Steak House, we are sorry to learn that the overall experience ended up being not satisfactory enough and hope to be able to provide alternative dining options in future stays. Moreover, Mr.Roy3007, please accept our most sincere apologies for the discomfort in the room.

Regarding Breakfast is there a difference in whats offered in main hotel verses the red level lounge?
Dear Hampsteadboy, At this time of the year, it should not be a problem to find a parking outside the hotel. You may try both breakfasts areas if you stay in a Red level Room; the Red level Lounge is an exclusive area within the hotel. You find a buffet but the warm choices are presented in a menu and served at the table. The other breakfast area is all Buffett. Both are great choices to be honest with you and quite a good variety. Please let me know If I may be of further assistance. Warmest Regards, Abel Lopez Ybarra Guest Experience Manager

When you arrive what is the procedure for parking? What tine does breakfast ebd?
Dear hampsteadboy, Good afternoon from Marbella. Thank you very much for thinking about us for your next Marbella trip. Before entering the hotel, you will get a parking ticket that is valid throughout your entire stay. At Front Desk or Red Level Front Desk, the ticket will be validated and you need to use the same ticket all the time. We recommend you to leave it in the car. Depending on the room category you chose, the parking ticket will have some discounts. Normal breakfast is until 11. Red Level Lounge breakfast until 12. Please let me know if I may be of further assistance. Warmest Regards, Abel López Ybarra Guest Experience Manager

"Get a sea view overlooking the pool / sea"
"Provide complimentary water daily and timely. And Clean much earlier within the morning time frame."
"The rooms facing inland (like ours, 426) are more spacious than the sea view, which was good for us. "
"501, 601 & 701 offer the best view one can imagine. Top View in Marbella!!"
"If you can, upgrade to Red level - rooms on corners especially good with wrap round balconies. "
$152 - $643 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
