Sol Don Pablo or Roc Flamingo

We are coming back here after many years. Looking at Jet2 at these hotels. Can anyone advise on which is best. We like a good location for the shops, bars etc, rather than the beach. Thank you

HI Petes1610

Sol Don Pablo !

Sol hotels are usually excellent being part of the Melia group.

This hotel has just had a major refurbishment.

We go shortly to our favourite hotel Melia Costa del Sol where we book a Junior Suite through Jet 2.

There are lots of shops along the sea front and plenty bars.

The walk is flat, go to your right coming out of the complex and walk around the headland to La Carihuela.

From the Don you can also go up the Municipal Ascensor ( Lift ) to Calle San MIguel where there are lots of shops .

Don Pablo / Marco / Pedro share facilities.

Staying at the Don you will have a sea view with the wide sandy beach in front of you with plenty eateries.

The Flamingo is situated in town in a back street.

I stayed there twice many years ago in the 1970's with my parents.

It looks on to buildings, no view whatsoever.

My husband and I had walk around the streets there last CDS visit.

Would not recommend.

Hope this helps you decide.

Any questions I will be pleased to try and answer.

Best Wishes Amethyst

If you do decide to book the Don Pablo make sure to ask for side sea view room. Some of the rooms above the reception area only have a view on to the car parking area. We nearly got put in one of them last year. It is a very good hotel.
