Our family love this hotel and we visit it every year. Abel the manager looks after us so well, he always makes sure everything is running smoothly and the family are enjoying themselves. His staff are very attentive and polite at all times especially Carmen on the Red Level Floor. Location is as good as it gets and this is the first year I didn't hire a car.

Hotel's Favorite
We have stayed at the gran melia in Marbella many times but after the past -18 months it was so nice to return Everything was as good as usual and all the staff seemed genuinely pleased to welcome back familiar faces We stayed in a newly renovated corner suite which was just perfect - great views and excellent cleaning and Covid precautions Every single member of staff wore a face mask at all times of the day - they were so dedicated to this . The staff make a great hotel and this hotel has amazing staff - from the tennis coach to the guys who served a (very ) large ameretto at nightcap to the guys at the front of the hotel - everyone was so friendly and professional. As always Rafa and Raul run a brilliant operation at the pool -nothing is ever a problem All the Red level staff are always on hand to check if everything is running smooth Abel the guest relations manager is everywhere and just can’t do enough for you - we extended our stay and our son managed to fly over for a few nights and this was all handled brilliantly by Abel - he is a credit to the hotel - the man is everywhere !! If you are planning on visiting the area this is the best location and best place - Will be back !

I have been here many times but I have to say the welcome, warmth, kindness and positive attitude of all the staff, given that they are still working under current annoying restrictions gave me a wonderful two week stay here. Nothing is ever too much trouble for any of them. They are kind, caring, fun and efficient. If something goes wrong as we know it can in hotels - they fix it with charm, patience and good humour Pool - this is a huge area, well staffed, well maintained and with great sea views. Towels are plentiful, drinks are nearby and there is always a breeze. Gym - a bit dated - but functional! Room - I did have the luxury of a Room at the Top - fabulous views, huge terrace and non stop hospitality service! If you book a Red Level room you have access to the lounge facilities with a terrace overlooking the beautiful gardens - well worth it Housekeeping - I always feel they can make or break your stay - they were efficient, did not forget things and were totally unobtrusive Restaurants - Erre for the evening was excellent - an interesting menu which I enjoyed. Service was very good Bardot by the pool is great for lunch - nice location and good selection of dishes Breakfast - go to the main restaurant rather than the Red Level Lounge - better selection of everything and fresh eggs on demand Location - I think this is one of the best placed hotels - the Paseo is below you full of bars and restaurants and the Old Town is walking distance alongside the sea Lobby - take time to admire the totally fabulous flower displays here - the bar and terrace are also lovely particularly at night. The staff - I can't really mention everyone by name but I think the GM Rocio has passed down her charm, caring and attention to detail to every one who works there. Abel of course, is essential to the smooth running of this hotel and is ably supported by a beautifully dressed team all in white who cater for your every need - really they do! Summary - part of the hotel may be a bit dated but don't worry about that! Location, staff taking care of you, views, food, drink and people who look after your comfort all day long are much more important!

Just back from a wonderful stay at the Melia Don Pepe - a true 5 star hotel. Delighted with the choice of location, a 35 min walk down the promenade to Marbella Old Town. The walk to Banus is about 1hr 15 mins in the heat - recommend in the morning and not when hot later. Marbella Old Town was a revelation - much prettier than expected and fantastic food and general wandering through the cobbled streets and squares. Don Pepe is a beautiful hotel and priced appropriately. Staff were fantastic - Rafa at the pool services team is a credit to the hotel. Rooms are not huge but well appointed and stocked. All the staff seem to be really happy to work at the hotel and are passionate about their jobs. We did move to a higher room to avoid a little bit of noise from the outdoor bar area (not too late) - but that is because we sleep with the doors open when on holiday. Credit to the management - there is obviously a quality culture code running through the hotel. We will return - thank you Melia Don Pepe.
