Good location-nice grounds-light and open feel-with service at a high level apart from very unfriendly and unhelpful female receptionist at arrival and a problem with room requested and allocated-which was not sorted out by her but by efforts of Gueast Experience Manager who arranged for room change on following day with some urgency and interest-hotel has associated restaurants and one...

We loved this hotel although we found several flaws , its a true 5 star as regards reception / public rooms and staff , the pool area is large and located in mature grounds which are lovely , its location is great , steps away from the coastal path & capochino bar and beach . Breakfast was above average ,...

Our family had a fantastic vacation! Almost all facilities were beautiful and well maintained. The Red Velvet Staff was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. The amenities were fun and inviting and the restaurants served delicious food. Loved the location. One area of improvement is that they need to update and remodel the fitness center and definitely add air conditioning. It...

Get a room with a view of the back of the hotel's grounds, pool and the Mediterranean. A stay at this hotel is a variation of the spectacular, in a positive sense. It's colors, vibes, restaurants and Costa de Sol seaside ambiance will make you want to extend your stay.

During the lovely month of May,I stayed at the 5 star deluxe DON PEPE in the centre of Marbella. Firstly I have to say, that it was a 5 star deluxe property, but the rates reflected that-I guess the old addage " one gets what one pays for" is apt in this case. Generally the rooms were excellent, (albeit a...

Although this hotel was built in the sixties, it is still remarkably fresh. Rooms are modern and very comfortable, the pool area is exceptionally clean with "beautiful" people lounging around, enjoying top class service. The "T-Bone" restaurant doesn't sound exciting, but the food is magnificent - the best foie gras I've had in ages. We only stayed two night, while...

Don Pepe cannot compete with Asian resorts. Food is regular, particularly for breakfast and pool bar lunches. Pool would certainly require more staff for service and more "hamacas" for guests. Pool is not the quieter I know (compare for instance with Elba in Estepona). It could be bad luck to be with guests behaving as you could expect in a...
