Stayed here in June for 5 days with a friend. Was booked in Sol Don Pedro but given a room in Sol Don Marco as complex is made up of 3 hotels. Sol don marco hotel was more modern. Very nice looking hotel inside and hotel rooms were adequate and very clean with nice spacious bathrooms. Although beds really uncomfortable and gave us back ache. The hotel is centred on the beach front in torremolinos, great location near shops and restaurants and only 10 mins walk to main centre which has plenty of shops, restaurants. The hotel grounds are nice enough and plenty of swimming pools to choose from, you can go to any pool etc in any of 3 hotels. We had half board and although breakfast was nice with plenty to choose from, we struggled with dinner and for half the time we ate out. We found a nice little bar about 5 min walk, left from hotel along the beach called Copacabana. It was nice to sit there and watch people go by and did great food. Beware of the Bar Manager if your a young lady, hes def a ladies man.
I went on this trip with my girl friend and being in our early 30s we were surprised that the nightlife in torremolinos is not as expected. There are a couple of bars, irish bars mainly in centre of torremolinos but the main clubs are for gays as its known as the gay holiday capital. We found out that 10 minute down the road (approx. 10-15 euros in taxi) is a place called benalmadena and a 24 hour square. It has about 6/7 bars/clubs which are open 24 hours and is really busy at the weekends. It was a great place to go.
If your thinking of visiting Marbella and porto bunis, its a distance and cost approx 50 euros one way in a taxi.

Dear TAGarton,
Thank you for taking the time to write your review of the Don Marco. I am glad that you enjoyed the hotel even though not so happy with the beds or the dinner. It is a shame that we did not know about the bed issue as we have softer mattresses for those who prefer them. I am sorry that you did not enjoy dinner as much as the breakfast. In general we have positive responses to the dining room but we realise that, although we have a great deal of variety, we cannot cater to every taste.
The centre of Torremolinos is no longer the wild party town that it was in the 80's but at the Los Alamos beach, which is about 15 minutes walk along the front there are some great bars and clubs. There are also clubs in nearby Puerto Marina which is a forty-minute walk (or cab ride) along the beach front in the other direction.
I hope that we see you again in the future. Thanks again for your review.
Kind regards,

My first stay at the Don Marco Hotel and Torremolinos. Excellent hotel in every way. Tastefully decorated, well maintained and cleaned to a very high standard. The grounds are beautiful. Also bedrooms very peaceful. Food fantastic. Excellent breakfast and the dinner at night had something for everyone. Reception staff very helpful. Eva was very efficient and helpful. Would definitely return as Great base for beach, shops and for walking to Carihuela or Benalmadena

Just returned from a short 3 day break at the Don Marco, booked through their own website. Paid a wee bit extra for seaview , and asked for 5th floor, as we had been before in 2007. Great room, full bath and separate shower. Huge balcony with table, chairs, umbrella, and sunloungers! As for the food, something for everyone, great breakfast, staff work really hard to maintain standards. What we really liked was the quiet atmosphere, as all entertainment was in the Don Pablo, and Don Pedro. If you want a hotel in Torremolinos, you must try this one!

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a front facing seaview room, and ask for floor 5!

Dear Granny1,
Thank you for your review. I am delighted to see a returning guest writing up their opinion on Trip Advisor.
A lot of guests love the Don Marco for the very reason that you mention: it is very peaceful, but with the advantage of having all the facilities, services and entertainment of the Don Pedro and Don Pablo available in the complex if you should want it.
I see that you stayed in one of the sea-front penthouse rooms. We only have three of these and they are in great demand. Having said that, all the rooms are similar in the Don Marco; it is just that the penthouses have that spectacular terrace.
Come again!
Kind regards,,

I've probably spent my best vacations in Sol Don Marco in June 2013. Rooms were clean, location right near the sea shore and close to Torremolinos center. There are a lot of swimming pools, jacuzi and reach entertainment programme. Most of days we spent on tourist trips around Malaga. There are many interesting places to visit in near. In the remaining days we were participating in different games, dancing trainings, gym and zoomba. All entertainment animators are really fantastic. They like their job and are very friendly taking care of all hotels inhabitants. Every day we had mini disco for kids and interesting shows. Don Marco, Don Pedro and Don Pablo are building a real powerful hotel complex, which allows to arrange an entertainment on the highest level.
Searching very thoroughly in the disadvantages, I would point the capacity of the restaurant, which had some problems to service all breakfasts and dinners in the "rush hours". Some tourists had to wait in que even 20 mins to get a place.
Me and my family were very satisfied of all other services provided by the Sol Don Marco. For sure I would recomend that hotel for 2-3 weeks vacations in Costa del Sol.

Room Tip: Most of hotel rooms has a sea sight. Rooms situated on Don Pablo side are more loudly and let observe evening shows and parties (I preffered those ones...). Opposite rooms are more quiet.

Dear PiotrP,
Thank you for writing you review on Trip Advisor. I am so glad that you took full advantage of all the services in the hotel complex as well as going out to discover the amazing Andalusian country that surrounds us. Many people forget that there is so much more than sun and sand in Torremolinos.
I really hope that we will see you again in the future.
Kind regards,

Returned to this hotel for the second time and we were not disappointed!! From the moment we arrived till we checked out 10 days later we enjoyed every minute. Eva and Minguel were especially helpfull at reception as was even the house maid!! The food this year was even better than last year. Food to suit all and plentiful.
Seaview room is terrific especially on the 5th floor.It is well worth paying the extra for such room. The free gym is small but has all that you need in it. The fridge is free, safe 2euro a day and you can have towels for sunloungers at 10euro deposit but you get it back when returned. Happy hour is also available and prices are very reasonable. Well worth a vist. I have friends who have already booked for Sept.2013 on my recommodation. Treat yourself!!!!!

Room Tip: 5th floor seaview rooms are very quiet..Your own sunloungers table and chairs on balcony and the view from them it lovely.
