This place was way over prices for what they offer and the service is terrible. Also the service on the beach is slow and has a very limited menu. Next time we will stay closer to Marbella.

Staying at Don Carlos was an absolute dream. The team was great and the rooms are just lovely. If you are looking to be closer to the party area Puerto Banus, you are about 20 min away. Other than that, definitely recommend!

Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Staff & service
Dishonest staff, basically to put it nicely, they are thieves. Charged me a full extra room because we had our 4 year old child with us! Imagine, my 4 year old child needs to sleep in. A room by herself!
