Reviewed 1 June 2012

Just returned home, room allocated to us was just the same as the Sol Don Pedro seems as though Sol Don Marco uses some of these. Entertainment limited ok if you have a partner and like to tango etc. A couple of the receptionists not particularly helpful, cleaners were the most friendly. Grounds 4 star, food, room 3 star (thin walls, noisy corridors). Air conditioners noisy and old.

Dear Ruth C, I am sorry to hear that you were dissappointed by your stay at the Sol Don Marco. I understand that the entertainment is never gooing to be to everyone's taste; although apart from the live music for dancing (tangoing etc!) we also have a show every night at the same time on the terrace of the Don Pablo building. I appreciate you taking the time to publish your comments on TripAdvisor.

Easter break 2012. Travel agent advised Don Marco. Booked on line with hotel. Not a problem. Very warm welcome. Staff very friendly and spoke English fluently which put us at ease immediately. Breakfast excellent.
Garden view from the balcony. Room very comfortable. Housekeeping service every day which I love.
At the beach, but many pools if you want to stay at base. Loved the variety of music at night for young at heart oldies like us.
Good choice! Will be back. Would recommend it highly

Nice hotel, close to the beach and a 10 minute walk up the hill to town.
Check-in was easy and the staff were friendly and spoke good English. My room was very clean and I had a nice view of the water and also a private balcony of good size.

The area was very quiet at night and there are two doors to stop the noise from the street, but I got woken up by noise from inside the hotel a couple of times as noise comes through the room door from the corridor.

The dining room was shared with one of the other Don hotels so it was crowded all the time, but the supply of food as continuos and of a good standard. All the other facilities are shared to so you have access to all the pools and recreational areas.

90% of the people staying here are old age pensioners, mostly I think from the UK and Germany, and I did feel a little out of place at meal times. If I came here again, I would probably stay up the hill in town somewhere, but if you want to be near the beach this is a good option.

We went for a quick break, did not want any issues to interfere with relaxing. Don marco was perfect, near airport, right on beach, well designed clean room and bathroom. Staff were there to look after you. Grounds and pools beautiful. Quiet at night(apart from arriving air crews). As it was still low season all guests of the 3hotels in complex used the Don Pablo restuarant making for very busy mealtimes but overall Don Marco was excellent and we will return.

We have been to Don Marco seven times and already thinking for nr. eight. A sort of coming home. The staff is dedicated and very helpfull. The breakfast and diner are very good. The location is perfect. The gardens, swimming pools, wellness, the boulevards, shops terraces etc. etc. For us is Sol Don Marco a place to go back.
