Reviewed 30 July 2017

We have just returned from yet another trip to one of our favourite hotels. As always the staff were absolutely delightful nothing was too much trouble. It really is one of those hotels that you want to return to again and again, I spoke to a gentleman this year whom I recognised from other years and he told me he had been returning to the hotel for 30 years. The breakfast room has a new set up which works superbly and as elsewhere in the hotel the staff were very attentive. We missed the piano player who used to serenade us at breakfast but everything else was perfect. The new Italian restaurant is a very welcome addition we enjoyed a lovely meal there. Ombu the restaurant in the garden is wonderful and I think the staff must have been chosen for their smiles they are truly delightful and the food is amazing portions are very generous and presented beautifully. The thing about this hotel that stands out is that the staff actually care, they want you to have a memorable holiday it matters to them and if you have any concerns at all they will rectify problems swiftly and smoothly. The family have already said they want to return next year so I'm sure I will be writing another glowing review.

Room Tip: Sea Views are preferable

We came to the Don Carlos as we have seen their resident entertainer Antony Wolfson perform before as we love his shows. His show starts at 10:30pm and we understand that he performs twice a week in their cocktail lounge. A beautiful hotel! A beautiful bar and his show had everyone up dancing. We loved it. And we will be back with more. friends. Thank you Don Carlos.

Could not fault this hotel. My stay from start to finish was thoroughly enjoyable! The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble...the electricity tripped in our room and this was rectified within 15 minutes! The room was spacious and exceptionally clean with a lovely balcony view looking out to sea. I would highly recommend the Spa if you would like to spend some quality time chilling out.

The hotels location is good although is a small walk or taxi journey away from any bars, restaurants or shops. Luckily we had rented a car so getting about was easy but a taxi down to Peurto Banus was under 20 Euro so it will not break the bank!!

We spent a day down at Nikki Beach which was brilliant and it being on the hotels grounds is a bonus! The atmosphere was excellent and I would definitely return again.

All in all, i cannot recommend this beautiful place enough and I hope to return in the future!

We only had a short stay here unfortunately for a business trip.Hotel staff were very efficient and friendly.
The gardens are beautiful and it's such a lovely walk down to the beach club.

Breakfast was delicious with so much choice.
Room was spacious with a fantastic balcony view.
Would love to return to be able to enjoy the hotel some more.

Stayed: July 2017

This hotel was so relaxing, it has amazing grounds, beautiful interiors, great choice of food.. then there's the spa.. everything a girl could wish for. Staff were amazing too. On the beach there were a number of great beds, several pools to choose from too.

Room Tip: We were upgraded and had added extras which were brilliant
