About Gran Melia Don Pepe, Marbella

Spectacular beachfront hotel at the foot of a national park

Minutes to Marbella

A 40-km drive from Malaga Airport, the Gran Meliá Don Pepe puts you on Casablanca beach, just outside Sierra de las Nieves National Park, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. The cafés and restaurants at Plaza de los Naranjos in Marbella's historic center are a 15-minute walk away.

Outdoors and art

You can hit the green at any of the dozens of nearby golf courses, or set sail in a catamaran. A 10-minute drive from the hotel, luxury marina Puerto Banús attracts shoppers and yachters, as well as art lovers curious about Salvador Dalí's 3-ton rhinoceros statue.

Poolside cuisine

With 3 pools and 2 tennis courts, you can easily work up an appetite for the Basque plates, steaks from the grill, and seafood offered at the hotel's restaurants. The solarium and Bali beds invite sunbathing, and the Turkish baths and spa services will help you relax.

Tranquility and tech

Guestrooms feature free WiFi and plasma TVs, but with mountains or sea views, you may choose to unplug for the night. All rooms have stylish and cozy sitting areas, and in the suites, guests can sink into a hydromassage tub or curl up in front of the fireplace.

Fabulous 8.8 From 113 reviews

Gran Melia Don Pepe, Marbella
Excellent experience. Well appointed rooms, great quality bedding and amenities. Breakfast, which was included in my rate, was amazing. Anything you can possibly want was included. Location is great, walking distance into Marbella's old town (about 25 mnts). 12 minute cab ride into Puerto Banus, a small haven for rich and famous.. the only negative is the strong, offensive smell in the lobby that wasn't pleasant . Thank goodness it was not in the rooms.

Very bad experience. I will never stay in this hotel again.

Long Weekend in Marbella
The welcome drink sets the tone for the stay - you know you're going to enjoy your trip when it starts with a glass of cava. The hotel is on the water with direct access to the board walk. Indoor and outdoor pool means you can swim regardless of Mother Nature's whims. The rooms are very clean, maybe slightly dated (I'm look at you fake candle looking lights in the bathroom) but nothing to complain about. The staff are beyond kind and know what it means to be "of service." Great stay, would certainly return given the chance.

Do NOT stay here. Hotel is showing its age
I had the worst time ever. There was construction that started at 8am and vibrated my whole room. When I complained they offered me an upgrade on my NEXT stay and gave me a cheap bottle of champagne. I think they should have given me a discount or some kind of voucher for while I was staying there. After my experience I will not be going back their even if they give me a free upgrade. They even lied to me and said the will tell the construction workers to start at 11am but they started at 8am just like the previous day

Excellent stay, will go back
I would like to had given a 5 throughout, but the staff at the pool side bar let the rest of the staff down, everyone was helpful and had a very pleasant disposition, cannot remember the name of the girl at reception with the glasses, who was working on our arrival at reception and departure, as well as Ana at the whiskey bar, they area credit to the hotel
