Excellent hotel, great location near the beach, bars and shops. Really good food and rooms. Nice little touch whereby they provide a courtesy room on your way home to enable you to shower. They also provided us with a half bottle of champagne and fresh fruit in our room for our anniversary.

Room tip: Drinks expensive otherwise I would have given 5* ask for sea view

Travelled to this hotel on recommendation from friends who stayed in this complex on a number of occasions. Hotel nice and quiet at check in and pleasant check in with reception. Room not very large but clean. Requested a quiet room and allocated room on third floor facing music area from Sol Don Pablo. Beds quiet firm and not everly comfortable. Room generally quiet but even if you closed the sliding doors noise from music from Don Pablo did not abate but finished circa 12.30. Generally very poor soundproofing.
Food was very good for buffet style. Breakfast varied and replenished frequently. Similarly dinner was very nice particularly on one evening which seemed to be an anniversary for the hotel with flower for the ladies, prawns mussells and salmon in abundance. As is usual in these complexes better to go to breakfast before 9 and to dinner before 7.30 less hassle and better choice of seating.
The area is only some 10 mins for the airport and extremely convenient. Located next to beach and nice 45 mins walk to Benalmadena Marina. Never had any problems with sunbeds but parasols very scarce. Plenty of shops restaurants etc on either side asyou exit the hotel. Would recomment to travel to the bus station at the top of the hill and take bus to Benalamedena Pueblo some 15/20 minutes bus journey up into the hills a small village with some nice bars and restaurants cost very reasonable and veery picturesque. Same bus goes on to Mijas.
Normally dont go to Irish bars when on holidays but nice quiet bar only two hundred metres namely The Irish Affair run by Margaret and her husband for the last 17 years family run and no hens or stags.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed our holiday except for the noise. All staff pleasant and helpful. Will return but may go to the Don Pablo and stay on upper floors behind tne music. Traavelled 29th. May for 7 nights.

My husband and I spent 10 days at Sol don Marco hotel complex, the room was very good with air conditioning, small fridge and small balcony, very nice shower room. Only over the road from beach with plenty of cafés and bars. We ate in hotel as we were on half board which was excellent buffet style large selections of cooked or continental breakfast, evening dinner was again buffet style with excellent selection of salads and hot food. Evening entertainment at other hotels in complex ok on some nights. The reception staff were very helpful in arranging trip to Gibraltar which was excellent. Plenty of swimming pools to choose from with sunbeds, very clean and set in lovely surrounding gardens. My only criticism would be the evening bar waiters at entertainment terrace are not very good at giving change when you have ordered drinks but we learnt by this and ordered our own at terrace bar.

We stayed here for a week in June. The facilities are good, the foyer area is well furnished and cool, a quiet area to sit down and relax in. There is wi-fi which is a bit pricey but a limited free wi fi allows you to do some basic browsing and sending emails etc. Rooms are well furnished and spacious with small balcony but no tea or coffee facilities in the room. Take a travel kettle if you want a morning cuppa.

The hotel is part of a group of three the main hotel offering entertainment at night if you like that sort of thing. We could hear the entertainment from our room but fortunately it quietens off about 11.30 so its not too late.

The complex has a number of pools most of which cater for kids with organised games etc. The pool at Don Marco is small but mainly used by older holiday makers, who in fact seemed to make up the bulk of the guests staying in this hotel. Sunbathing by the pool was quite pleasant with no screaming kids or pool games being organised. The oldies are more than capable of making up their own entertainment when left to get on with it

The beach is on the doorstep but sand is gritty so we spent most time at the pool. There are plenty of shops and restaurants/bars near by so no need to go hungry or thirsty. Breakfast at the hotel is a self serve buffet. Dont look at the greedy folk on full board who stuff themselves silly with everything they can see. We didnt eat in the hotel. Dinner can be bought for 15 euros and again its a self serve buffet thing. To be honest you can eat out for less and its more authentic.

As for Costa Del Sol its not my cup of tea. Very tourist tacky. Very built up and a bit difficult to get around. There is a good train service from Malaga via the airport to all the resorts but the stations are a long way from the resort centres

Room tip: Rooms at the front dont get the noise from the entertainment at the other hotel but the street is busy with shops, bars and restaurants so maybe not much quieter. The entertainment goes off about 11.30
