  • Nice and helpful people but it needs a renovation and is definitely not 5 star class more…

      It was wonderful and perfect for our family. We only stayed 3 days but wanted to stay longer. We swam in the ocean and the pool, played tennis and volleyball and ate great meals.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Over the past decade, I have given a scant few hotels a perfect score. I now add Don Carlos to this very short list. Sublime service from start (thank you Pamela) to finish (thank you Manuel). Lovely facilities from the exquisite flowers and art throughout the public area to the amazing pool, lush gardens, tennis courts and beach. The brunch was so fresh and fantastico we actually wanted to get up in the morning. The Oasis Spa — we never wanted to get out of that bubbly sea of serenity. The Don Carlos is the real deal — what a hotel should be.

      Warning: Do not stay here!

      A truly terrible experience. 1 person for checking, concierge and bell man. Waited over an hour for my luggage. Went to get it myself and it was right we’re I left it in. I just took it. No one asks for claim ticket. I booked an excursion and was told to pick up details after 7pm. Arrived at 8, a new person was at the desk with no information about the excursion. An entire day ruined. Staff seems disinterested, lazy, and untrained. This is a 3 star hotel.
