We’ve recently returned from our second stay this year at the Don Carlos resort and both times it was perfect. The staff go out of the way to help, the rooms are excellent, the hotel is clean and elegant and breakfast is a perfect start to the day. The breakfast area is very relaxing with a great selection of food and drinks, the staff are very attentive and make sure you have everything you want. The beach area and pool is a perfect area to relax and enjoy the day and the staff are always on hand to bring you food or drinks whenever you want. We had such a great time we have already booked our next stay in 2019.

Date of stay: September 2018

Stayed for one night and had a great time. Beautiful gardens which don't quite reach the sea front. Nikki Beach, a different company, own the beachfront and access is free from the hotel.

Many tennis courts and great breakfast.... great bar overlooking hotel's pool.

Rooms contemporary and well appointed within a tower block structure.

My wife and I spent 4 nights in the Don Carlos - Deluxe Premium room with Sea Views. The service was excellent with the staff being very helpful and friendly. The room was very good with a comfortable king sized bed, large screen TV (with channels of varying languages), CD player, mini bar etc. The room balcony had excellent sea and mountain views though the balcony only had direct sun in the afternoon/ evening. The bathroom was nice though a little tight when two people are getting ready to go out.
The breakfasts were excellent catering to all needs. The are two pool areas - both were very relaxed, with the Orange beach club right beside the beach.
The hotel is situated close to Nikki Beach which was perfect for long morning walks. There are multiple tennis courts which we did not use.
The piano bar was very pleasant and relaxing. We had dinner one night in the hotel and the food was good. The hotel did provide a recommended local restaurant list - we tried two and they were both good. I dont normally visit hotel spa's but did on this occasion and found the Spa to be very refreshing - my wife had a few different treatments and found them to be very good (albeit expensive ~ €300 - but this is a relative thing). Overall the Don Carlos stay was great and recommended.

I stayed in the Don Carlos during a company summit.
Location is top, with direct access to the beach where a Beach club is set for the hotel guests.
Standard room is spacious and comfortable, with a complete set of amenities.
Excellent room service with cleaning and turn down service in late evening.
Lots of opportunities to enjoy sport with different pools, tennis courts, soccer and more. Unfortunately due to fixed agendas I couldn’t test them.
Last night dinner close to the beach was fantastic for both location and quality of food.
Definitely recommended.

We have been to this hotel many times and it never failed, the location is beautiful and the staff are very friendly. Breakfast is good think the sausages could be better though plus the only downside to this hotel is we spend so much money here a year and they want 40 euro each for entrance to the spa. But on the whole the hotel is an oasis and it’s beautiful
