Staff really friendly and helpful.
All places very clean. Rooms cleaned very day along with fresh towels etc.
Location two mins from beach. You can also use facilities from other hotels e.g Don Marco and Don Pablo.
The food was great something for everyone night after night no complains. Hotel great if you have any difficulties in walking.
Didn't try any of the hotel entertainment

My only complaint really is that I wish they would put down carpets in the corridors. While the tiles look good and are in traditional style, it is noisy when suitcases are run along them - sometimes early in the morning.
Breakfast - including the home made pancakes are a must and the easy car parking wonderful for a quick getaway.
I do like his hotel for value (off season) and i did note that the flamingo show was very very very well attended. Lounge areas are very good and an easy place to sit down with a book or simply people watch.

The food is quite good, plenty of choice. The public areas are nice and clean.
However was really disappointed in the room, the dust under and around the bed was appalling, I don't know when it was last cleaned. The bathroom still had the previous occupants hairs in. There was also a musty smell. Asked reception 4 times and the rep (when you actually tracked him down - NEVER at desk when supposed to be) for room to be moved or at least cleaned properly, and it never was. I cleaned bathroom myself. The balcony was covered in ash from the ignorants above, this wasn't cleaned either.
Entertainment starts at 11.30 at night - too late for children.

Food was very varied with everything from local dishes to chips. Prices from poolside bar not as expensive as we expected.
Room a bit small for 4 of us but very clean.
4 Pools and a jacuzzi to choose from and beach right opposite hotel with private access gate and security.
Great location for shops etc.
Evening entertainment in Spanish (repeated in English) as lots of guests were from Spain. Great family atmosphere with plenty of daytime activities for all. Boys disappointed that you had to be 13 years old to play football activity.
Will definitely return.

Once inside the hotel, it is a typical spanish hotel with great facilities and class.
We checked in, and we were given a family room, which we did not need as there was only 2 of us. We asked at reception and they moved us without any problem at all.
The restaurant is great, but you would think it was awful, if you listened to some of the older guests, who expected Pukka pie and chips everynight!
The food is excellent, you will never starve, plenty of bread, fruit and an excellent choice everynight. Fresh fish is cooked in front of you. The restaurant staff are friendly, but dont understand alot of english.
Visiting this hotel this time of the year is mainly older people, but the entertainment is aimed at them, but we only had bingo once in a week. Some of the evening acts were a bit rubbish, but your on holiday and you expect a bit of tack!
Throughout the day you can use the pablo's facilities, and this also includes the evening entertainment, but be warned the drinks are cheaper in the pedro. (Happy Hour 5.30-6.30 2x1)
All in all we had a great holday, and made some great friends. We were the youngest in the hotel, with us both being 26, but we were made to feel so welcome-i would go back tomorrow.
If you were looking for information from the Thomson rep, dont look here-she was awful, we had no information about the resort, all she was intrested in was booking trips (Which are alot cheaper just outside in the resort)
The location of the hotel is great, most of the holiday we used the local trains 55 and 25mins past every hour till midnight, excellent service which goes from malaga to fuengirola.
Excellent holiday, and great value for money.

The Don Pedro is on a complex with the Don Marco and Don Pablo with the beach just across the road.. There are shops, bars and restaurants along the sea front but only two Irish bars with entertainment.
The room we were allocated was a corner room with no balcony but a after word with reception this was changed, without fuss, to a much better one. The rooms were comfortable , clean and well equipped.
There was a good choice of food but buffet meals become a bit repetitive after a time. An influx of Spanish holidaymakers at weekends resulted in congestion at mealtimes.
The hotels entertainment team were poor in the evening, incapable of miming songs but occasional outside artists were much better.
Most of the guests in the complex were "elderly" and went to bed by eleven, I am 60 myself but this was to sedate.
A good hotel in a good location but early October is just to quiet.

The food was good and plentiful with a fair choice.
Room was spacious & clean.
The staff were great even better if you spoke a little Spanish, all in all a great inexpensive winter break.
