The clay courts are great, the people at reception are very friendly, I had a great week of tennis coaching with Adam, I started with no confidence on my forehand and by the end of the week it was by strongest stroke. However, it’s pricey, the most expensive tennis lesson I’ve ever had at €69/50mins!

The wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly Sam at the recreation desk was truly a wonderful highlight to our holiday. Sam is truly a most valuable asset to the Don Carlos hotel. Anything we asked of her, Sam was able to point us in the right direction in terms of restaurants, markets, walking tours and nightlife. Make sure you go and see her when you check in to make the most of your holiday 💯

My wife and I traveled to the Don Carlos Resort in Marbella in June of 2022. It was amazing! Great and friendly staff, the oasis spa is beautiful, the pools were perfect, and the beach was the best in Marbella. We loved the meals we at on-site and the location was great if you wanted to travel into the main area of Marbella for a day trip or dinner. Overall an excellent stay and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying in Marbella.
