We stayed at this hotel from March 16th to 23rd this year. We have come for the past few years to Malaga for Semana Santa and use Torremolinos as a base.
Last year we stayed in the Hotel Don Pablo, a lovely hotel in which we have holidayed on a no of occasions.
We decided to change to its sister hotel this year and boy, were we impressed.
We arrived at around 11.30pm to a very warm welcome from the receptionist, who was more than happy to facilitate us with a room with a sea view, per my request.
The room was on the 4th floor, very comfortable and well appointed, and spotlessly clean.
There were extra pillows and blankets provided, the latter most welcome as temperatures dropped dramatically during the early hours.
At all times the team on reception were friendly, courteous and helpful, tolerating and even encouraging my husbands attempts to communicate soley in Spanish with much amusement and admiration!!!
The dining room, where both breakfast and dinner were served, was a large airy room, the other end of which led to the Hotel Don Pedro, another "sister".
Food was excellent, choice was huge, everything constantly eing replenished.
A very friendly manager was on duty most mornings, English I think, and proved an invaluable source of information for us.
We had lunch, which was served in the newly refurbished Don Pablo, on a couple of occasions and found the food and coice therre excellent also.
Dinner in Don Marco catered for all tastes, Spanish, Italian, good solid Northern European food, salads, soups.
And dessert!!! still trying to shift the weight.
The late night bar was in Hotel Don pedro, manned by a charming waiter.
All in all, we can only praise and recommend this hotel as a lovely relaxing spot.\\
The complex itself has a number of pools, and beautiful gardens.
One point I'd like to make, and this is not aimed specifically at the Don Marco, but at all hotels like these.
Please please leave the tea and coffee macihines on for our vital, life saving caffeine after meal boosts!
Oh, and a kettle in the room would be the icing on the cake.
We'll be back!!
