Brilliant fabulous

"Just back on the 5th July after two weeks in don pedro.Paid a bit extra for the superior room which overlooked the pool,well worth it.Rooms not large but adequate.very quite at night, the only thing you could hear was the frogs croaking in the garden pond.No problem getting a sun lounger beside the pool,everything very clean,the staff was very helpful and was very good,great variety,the only thing I did not like was the sausages in the morning.gardens are beautiful,entertainment every night to suit all.Will definitely be going back again,really fab holiday."

The Hotel Sol Don Pedro is one of...

"The Hotel Sol Don Pedro is one of three in a complex. The other two hotels are the Hotel Sol Don Pablo and the Hotel Sol Don Marco. The facilities of all three hotels are available to guests.

This is a very clean hotel with very friendly staff and well located being opposite the beach.

One downside is the restaurant. There is a good selection of salads and desserts but quite poor when it comes to hot meals, there is just not the choice and it is never what you would call hot. We found the breakfasts to be better and with plenty of choice.

The other point about the restaurant is that when guests have finished and leave, tables are not re-laid for guests coming in for a meal, so you have to sit at an empty table and wait for a waiter to provide you with your cutlery etc which can be a nuisance.

With regard to our room we found was that because we were on the top floor, we could hear the generator above us and it could be irritating, especially at night and also our room was right next to the lifts, so we could hear them going up and down.

In general, the walls are quite thin so you could hear the toilet next door flushing! And the corridors are tiled, so sound tends to echo but it was not a problem at night and we were never disturbed by guests arriving back late.

The cleanliness of the hotel and the very helpful and friendly staff more than made up for any other little irritations.

The bar is very nice with friendly waiters. The entertainment could have been worse. Most nights it was provided by some of the hotel staff and we think they did quite a good job.

For the smokers there are three smoking rooms in the complex, all air-conditioned. This has only been so since January as the smoking ban in Spain has been more or less lifted.

We would definitely go there again and will probably do so in the next six months and would recommend it.

"Returned last night after spending one excellent week at this hotel. My husband and I are quite young sixty something’s.

Every aspect of this hotel far exceeded our expectations in every respect. The whole complex is exceptionally clean, gardens and facilities superb and food very good.

The only thing that could have been improved on was the room. Although very clean and comfortable, could do with a bit of updating, but for the amount of time we spent in the room it was that important.

"This was the fourth time which we have stayed at the Sol Don Pedro (plus another twice at the Sol Don Marco, which is part of the same complex).

The Hotel is in a great location, opposite the beach and close to numerous bars, restaurants and shops, and is only about 10 minutes by taxi from Malaga airport (15 Euros fare).

As with previous stays, we cannot fault the Hotel on the quality of its facilities, staff, accommodation, and activities.

The buffet-style breakfast and dinner, although good quality, can be a bit monotonous though, and the evening entertainment tends to be amateurish, but we knew of these in advance.

"My wife and I found this an excellent hotel. The food was very good freshly cooked with a good variety of meats & fish and mostly fresh not frozen vegetables. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh linen about every three days.

The entertainment was good though you have watch you change from the bar. The pools and area where kept very clean. The hotel is in a complex of three hotels that you can use at will. An all round good holiday

"The room was clean, tidy and comfortable; the staff were friendly and helpful.

The food however, was at best boring. Too bad such a lovely hotel with great other amenities is let down by the lack of imagination and thought to its menu.

There is plenty of information regarding activities and evening fun, and they were always on time and great entertainment.

Lovely hotel

"Just returned from 9 nights at this hotel. As you will be aware it is on a complex with 2 other sol hotels which makes it very big with plenty going on.

Our room was for 3 adults which made it quite small but the room itself was spotless and cleaned what seemed to be every day. The room we had was facing the car park and when we asked if we could move to a pool view, it was not a problem and we were moved the next day. The room also had a TV which had 4 english channels to help keep in touch!!!

The restaurant was excellent with lots of tables and lots of choices of meals. It would be no good complaining about the choice of foods when you go HB as you know the choices are pretty much the same but they do vary some over the days. All that said it was lovely and there was something for everyone, you would have to be fussy not to like anything and HB is probably not for you.

The hotels shared pools with the other hotels so I think there was 7 or maybe more and also an indoor pool if you wanted it. Plenty of sunbeds for everyone although it was April so the demand was not the same as August but saying that we had 9 lovely sunny days.

As it was our first time here we hired a car. We had some good days out and would recommend Gibraltar and Puerto Banus.

Average 3 Star accommodation but great facilities

"We spent one night at the Don pedro last week after staying 3 nights at its sister hotel (same complex that also contains the Don Marco) the Don Pablo who couldn´t accommodate us for a sudden decision extra night.

The downstairs lounge and bar areas were beautiful - well above 3 star standard - and both had log fires blazing that were more than welcome on a cold wet day in January! The bar and lounge was a lovely place to relax with a good book (small residents library of free books provided)on the only wet day of our stay. No pressure to buy drinks when sitting in bar lounge that was a welcome change from other hotels we have visited.

The bedroom was markedly more basically furnished than at the Don Pablo and the bed decidedly soft and lumpy! Furniture basic but the whole room spotlessly clean and en suite bathroom obviously very recently refurbished so maybe they intend to start on the bedrooms soon.

Great that you can use the facilities of all 3 hotels including heated indoor pool. Good entertainment in Don Pedro cabaret room each evening and no pressure to purchase drinks during the performance.

On a negative note, we found the food to be less inviting than at the Don Pedro (surprising as the restaurant was being shared with 4 star guests staying at the Don Marco) and restaurant staff service appalling. ALL our crockery - from Soup Bowls to Dessert Bowls - was still on our table at the end of our meal. Drinks prices in restaurant though surprisingly good value with a bottle of drinkable house wine less than €8 a bottle (same brand less than €2 in local shop but you expect to pay more in hotel restaurant).

We would return to the Don Pedro - but only if we couldn´t get accommodated in Don Pablo or Don Marco, or if they offered us a considerable reduction on other 2 hotel prices.

great value hotel

"We had a full family short break in this hotel beginning of November. We had previously been in the Don Pablo a couple o times so were well used to the haigh Sol-Melia standards of service. We were not let down by the Don Pedro even if it is one star lower in the pecking order. You gets what you pays for. We booked three double rooms and were offered a special rate for half board, which was just unbeatable. Right from reception we were amazed at the standard of service, so someone is giving staff training a high priority. With so much choice now available to us punters, service has to be the ruler we use to rate our stay in any place of entertainment or hospitality. We did find the rooms to be a bit small for two adults and the bathrooms likewise. But hey, we do not spend much time indoors when there is so much to pull us outdoors. The decor of the dining room is a bit dismal when compared to the sumptious splendour of the Don Pablo, but again horses for courses, different market segments are catered for by three vs four stars, and there is no one size fits all solution. Overall we were amazed at the value for money which we got and would recommend this package to anyone looking for a comfy and strategically well located base on the Costa. At this price we could go out to dinner in one of the countless resort restaurants without feeling we were being reckless by missing a hotel meal already paid for.

Two minutres to the beach,5 minutes to the airport as well, , what more could you want ?

What a dump! Run Away As Fast As You Can!

"Checked into this hotel onthe basis that most Melia properties are decent. Boy was I wrong. This place is run down, dirty and poorly run. Rooms are tiny, bathrooms are adequate, AC in our room did not work property are the remote control to regulate was not available. When we requested one to be sent up, we were told they didn't have any and we should climb up on a chair or the desk to reach the controls. Also, upon check in we were given a room with 2 twin beds. We reserved a room with one large bed. After arguing with the staff, they moved us. The room that we were moved to was a "downgrade". The hotel refused to charge us the lower rate for the new room. Staff treats the guests no better than monkeys in the zoo. Take note that this is a NO SERVICE HOTEL. I guess you get what you pay for when you stay in a hotel that attracts a "certain type" of holiday maker. Swimming pools are small, crowded and don't resemble the photos on Melia's web site. I think they posted photos from another hotel instead of this hotels pools. Stay away from this place at all costs. If you are intent on going to Tormollenos and this is the only place available, don't go."
