My husband and I booked this holiday after the collapse of tour operator we always used and stayed at the Sol Melia hotel a few hundred metres from the Don Pablo. No comparison. Cannot understand why standards can differ so much within star ratings. Hotel requires serious upgrading and maintenance. Flaking paint on leaking bathroom ceiling and balcony, shattered glass panel on balcony, no balcony light, old wooden windows and patio door secured by chain. Dark small bedroom with awful tapestry covering one entire wall. Social areas dated, gloomy and unwelcoming. Indoor pool awful - mouldy ceiling and only one small shared changing room. Outdoor pool areas not much better. Badly repaired or broken steps. One redeeming factor - its seafront location. Meals were plentiful but some very unusual items on offer at breakfast - cabbage, carrots and even brussel sprouts! More suitable for older clientele.
