Amazing place for families with children! Great location and the best kids club EVER!

Review by Mrsadams13 Los Angeles, California

We had the absolute best time here! We are so happy we booked this hotel for the following reasons: best kids club in the world (as my 4 year old put it), best location hands down, the most delicious complimentary breakfast, and amazing staff (especially Merry at the kids club!).

If you are traveling with children, this is the spot for you. My husband and I were able to drop off our kids at the kids club (no additional charge) and take advantage of the Michelin restaurants and spa treatments. Our kids would wake up and run to the kids club, we had to beg them to leave so they could spend time with us and eat...

Lol. One evening they had an amazing magician perform some cool tricks and they allowed some of the parents to stay and participate. Today before leaving they planted plants and watered the gardens. We cannot say enough great things about Merry and the staff. Way to make our children feel safe, special and more importantly have the time of their lives on vacation! Thank you!

As for the location, we thought about going to another hotel due to our points but are so happy we choose this one. It’s beach front and there’s a private entrance for guests. It’s so close to so many things and the boardwalk was always a great place to grab lunch and drinks. Perfect location.

The breakfast is complimentary and amazing! The staff there always greeted our children and brought them special treats. Butterfly Pancakes were made especially for our girls. They certainly wowed us! One time our youngest daughter hit herself and as a result got a bloody nose. The staff was quick to blow up some balloons to distract her, bring out ice packs and towels and make her feel better asap. Super impressed with their level of caring. Thanks!

The only thing I’d say is the rooms are a little dated, understandable since it’s a 1960s hotel, plus we didn’t spend that much them in the rooms, there’s so much to explore. Aside from that everything and everyone impressed us. Overall, worth our 19 hour journey from Los Angeles! Thank you all we will be back! Gracias y saludos Merry!

Second time here and still fabulous stay

This is our second time here, first was 2019 for a week, now in 2022 for 10 days and that says it all Brilliantly placed overlooking the beach, large swimming pool but above all it is the staff that makes this hotel so memorable. Enrique at the check in, Silvia at the sumptuous breakfast buffet and so many others who would go out of their way to cater for our needs with a smile Food is fabulous the new ErrE grill restaurant with juicy steaks and that bread with next level olive oil The Bardot pool restaurant and the fried squid , oh and we hope to try their infamous Paella in the next few days Highly recommend and worthy of 5 Stars

Wonderful top class hotel

Review by RangerFarnborough farnborough

We had a fabulous time and loved the hotel grounds and, of course, the magnificent pools. The service was outstanding from all the staff and the pool concierge boys were most attentive. The breakfast buffet was the best we have experienced with a superb choice of fresh fruit, cold meats, as well as the usual egg station with hot food. The other restaurants were very good but it would have been preferable if the pool restaurant was open in the evening Our room, Red Level, was excellent except the bathroom design could have been better as the free standing towel rail overlapped the doorway...

Bed very comfortable and great coffee machine. Air Con very good. Probably the best holiday hotel we have stayed in.

Batteries Recharged at Don Pepe

Review by alan927 Glasgow, United Kingdom

A excellent hotel to recharge and experience wonderful service-pool attendants, reception and cafe Capuccino deserve special mention. Superb location to enjoy a walk on the promenade or even a cycle to Banus or Marbella. Beach just a few steps away and can’t recommend the place enough for a restful catch up week with your partner.

Great Hotel and Wonderful Staff

Review by ayoung2015 Glasgow, United Kingdom

This is our 2nd stay at the Don Pepe. It is a beautiful hotel with lovely gardens and a pool area. There is a gym if you are feeling active...

The breakfast buffet has loads of choices with eggs to order. The staff are very friendly. There is a picturesque promenade to walk to the centre of Marbella or to Puerto Banus. The Cappuccino bar is great for drinks and food and has a lovely view of the sea and the promenade. The rooms are spacious. I would highly recommend staying there and it will be my first choice when I return to Marbella.
