We've been coming her for 10 years now. Every summer this is our favourite holiday spot. The villas are so luxurious with everything you need! The pool is quiet and relaxing. Lovely little extras the villa staff hung fresh juices in the morning by the pool and nibbles throughout the day. Nothing is too much trouble! Maria who oversees the villas is so lovely treating us as family whenever we return remembering all our names! Pablo who works for the villas also is so great nothing is too much trouble for him. Cannot recommend this resort enough after visiting I can promise you won't stay anywhere else!

This hotel was recommended by my friend, who lived in Elviria for a few years and has a villa nearby. He and his wife were both celebrating their 50th birthday, and had invited their friends and family over for a big party on the at their villa and later down at a beach club. There were others staying here from the UK that we knew too. When I first arrived at the hotel I didn't think it looked that impressive from the outside, but how very wrong! Once you step inside the place is lovely, the public areas are spacious without being over the top and the ambiance is just right. The rooms are very well appointed and spotless, as was the bathroom. We had a deluxe room with a sea view, but could have done with having a balcony, which was a school boy error on my part. We only had breakfast and food by the poolside and the Beach club, as we were out with our friends every night. The food we had was fabulous, and I am sad that we did not have time to eat in one of the restaurants, I am told they are very good. We also had room service one night, i ordered a Pizza and some fries, and it was delicious. The staff here are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble, and they are so polite. From the doormen, porters, receptionists, waiting staff, management, room maids etc' etc'. They all want to ensure you have a lovely stay, and we certainly did. The swimming pools are fabulous too, they are so well maintained, both the main pool and down at the beach club. They have a great paddling pool for the children too. There was no fighting for the sun loungers either, it was always possible to find a couple. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, and again well maintained. The tennis club looked very nice, and my friends said it was fab inside. They have about 8 outside courts for the energetic people. I would go back to this hotel tomorrow, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. They have a very nice class of clientele. A wonderful holiday destination.

Room tip: Make sure you get a balcony even if it costs a bit extra.

Great hotel for a short relaxing break and excellent service. Only drawback is that it is remote from Marbella & Puerto Banus so one needs a car or taxi rides to and fro. Bedrooms excellent, spacious, comfortable and very good air conditioning. Stylish too with lighting by Artemide and Foscarini. Excellent free wifi in room and also outside by pool. A la carte food very good and lovely waiting staff. Good gym in tennis/fitness centre at extra cost. The main hotel gym is very small & basic, not really good enough for a 5 star hotel. Plenty of sunbeds and towels, there were certainly lots of spares by the pool during our stay. Hotel has been refurbished throughout to contemporary standards. All the hotel staff are extremely helpful and did everything they could to make our stay pleasurable.

We stayed in a two-bedroom villa at the Don Carlos near the end of May, and had a great experience. We found the staff and facilities excellent, and look forward to visiting again. Travelling with two small children, we loved having a full kitchen in your villa plus the option of utilising the full-service room service and restaurant facilities of the main hotel a great feature and added a lot of flexibility. The villas themselves were spacious and clean -- no complaints there at all. Highly recommended!

Stayed in the two bedroom villas recently and can only say that they were top class. Very clean and well appointed. These villas are separate from the main hotel with private entrance, pool area and check in / concierge.
Overall a very pleasant stay my only minor quibble little bit expensive.
