              The gardens and setting of the Don Carlos are beautiful. Niki beach is just next door.

              The hotel was wonderful but the spa services were less than acceptable! I was greatly disappointed in the spa pedicure received at this spa. It was far from relaxing and the end result was again disappointing. I do not know how someone can give a pedicure (cutting nails, push and trim cuticles) in a dimly lit room? I have never gotten a pedicure in a horizontal position and being 4 months pregnant, it is an extreme discomfort. I had to engage my abdominal muscles to keep my feet in the foot tub (and the water was cold) and to keep from pushing the tub off the edge of the table. The nail technician did a horrible job painting my nails, among many other techniques I found to be odd. This was by far the worst and longest 50 minute pedicure I have ever had!!

              We stayed two nights at Don Carlos and we enjoyed it. Despite the ugly tower the hotel is very nice inside with a lovely garden. The main plus of the hotel is the Nikki Beach which is on the beach of the hotel. Our Deluxe room had a beautiful view and was very modern.

              The food at Bahia restaurant could have been better. Breakfast is great.

              The staff at reception desk are very helpful, a lady named Marina (I think) she did an extra mile to her service! Very good. As a netshell, we enjoyed our stay in this hotel v much! The yoga was good.

              Whilst the hotel has been nicely designed and is in a good location- for a weekend stay- the food at the hotel is awful. From breakfast to dinner, it is absolutely apalling quality. There isn't a single thing I ordered that I could eat more than two bites of

              6.6

              Well positioned between Malaga and Marbella, lovely gardens, pool and poolside facilities, comfortable beds.

              Decor in rooms is tired and dated, breakfast overpriced, gym too small and poorly equipped.

              Nice environment, professionnel staff and good location 10 mins away from marbella by car. Rooms were well designed and of hood size.
