Amazing Hotel, Amazing Service Amazing Staff-nice to be back!!

Review by webcatcher bournemouth

Over the years we have returned to
Don Pepe hotel many times, The location is fantastic, direct access to the beach and overlooking the Med. From the minute you arrive at this stunning hotel you know you’ve arrived in a special place. The staff are ready to welcome and assist as you walk through the main entrance. Secure parking out front and a secure room key operated gate down to the beach. The bars and restaurants are an absolute must, service, food and drink selection truly superb. Breakfast in the Red Level is first class with a wide selection available again well organised and relaxed...

The staff looking after us on the Red Level are all exceptional. Our room on 7th floor was spectacular, spacious and modern with a balcony overlooking the Med The overall service was excellent, nothing was to much trouble and all the staff were happy to help with anything that we asked for. We alway feel safe here as there are plenty of security measures around the hotel, the hotel has also implemented Covid 19 rules and reg’s to keep everyone as safe as possible, whilst not being intrusive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Don Pepe to everyone, we love this place so much, we are already planning a return visit shortly. I just love everything about this hotel it’s faultless, it’s more than a hotel it’s an experience. Well done to all the team!!!

Fantastic stay at the Melia Don Pepe Gran Melia

Review by DaveRoberts2021

Just back from a wonderful stay at the Melia Don Pepe - a true 5 star hotel. Delighted with the choice of location, a 35 min walk down the promenade to Marbella Old Town. The walk to Banus is about 1hr 15 mins in the heat - recommend in the morning and not when hot later...

Marbella Old Town was a revelation - much prettier than expected and fantastic food and general wandering through the cobbled streets and squares. Don Pepe is a beautiful hotel and priced appropriately. Staff were fantastic - Rafa at the pool services team is a credit to the hotel. Rooms are not huge but well appointed and stocked. All the staff seem to be really happy to work at the hotel and are passionate about their jobs. We did move to a higher room to avoid a little bit of noise from the outdoor bar area (not too late) - but that is because we sleep with the doors open when on holiday. Credit to the management - there is obviously a quality culture code running through the hotel. We will return - thank you Melia Don Pepe.

"Don Pepe - our beautiful 'home' in Marbella"

Review by TPH15 Uk

Just returned from another fantastic and relaxing experience in the Gran Melia Don Pepe. We usually come twice a year to this beautiful hotel, that now feels like our second home, with its amazing staff but due to Covid this was our first visit since September 2019. It was great to see so many of the same friendly faces if the attentive staff team there to greet and look after us.

The rooms and balconies offer amazing views across the gardens of the Mediterranean which is a beautiful scene to wake up to every morning...

They are kept impeccably clean and well stocked with Elemis products and water.

The Red Level service and the staff there is better than ever and a big thank you to Irene and Carmen and the team for always being so friendly and helpful. The Red Level is a great place to take breakfast, have a break and to have a drink and snack during the day with beautiful views over the garden and to the sea. Also in the evening it is perfect for a pre-dinner glass (or two) of wine.

At the pool, everything is organised impeccably by the amazing Rafa, Raul, and the rest of their concierge team. Nothing is too much trouble and the whole pool area and gardens provide a beautiful environment.

We can't wait to return again in the Spring and finally a big thanks to Abel and Laura who are always available and constantly attending to the guest experience. This is definitely a 'jewel' of Melia's hotels.

Wonderful holiday as usual

Review by andrea3400ya Dublin

I go to the Don Pepe every summer with my mum and this summer was no different. The service as usual was wonderful, Andy (Fernando), Ernesto and Abel were all wonderful to deal with as well as all the staff in the hotel we’ve come to know over the years. Will definitely be back next summer!
