3rd Visit this year

Posted 13-Sep-2017
Pros: Everything, but location and friendliness are top of the list.
Location: We always rent a car, there is so much to explore, an area with a wealth of scenic beauty and so much history and culture
Love. love, love this place! Feels like home, but with sunshine and I don't have to cook. With so many places to choose from we eat out every night. Hope to make another visit very soon.

Will say hotel was ok but sprinklers comes on at around 5:40 or 6am and always wakes as up my daughter struggled to sleep because of it it's hot at night can't use the aircon at night due to extra electricity charges.

lovely spacious apt, clean, next to great amenties

Posted 25-Aug-2017
Pros: situation, cleanliness and great staff on reception
Cons: sun beds on the beach area to allow more space at the pool area
Location: calla de mijas, great market days, good restaurants and lovely beach, great new board walk from near hotel all the way to call de mijas
had a great holiday, enjoyed the dona lola very much, found resort prices for food and drink pricey but plenty of supermarkets near by. next to cpmplex 9 restaurants ate in 5, all very nice. only issue was pool area extremely busy sun beds practically on top of each other but it is high season. would love to return.

Lovely location and resort. Apartments could do with updating but still comfortable and clean. Pool was very cooling and relaxing although trying to get a position and getting a sun bed required military organising and precision, which other families got this off to a fine art. The queuing to get in to the pool area to get a bed and sun shade, which you had to do before it opened to get a position, bed and sun shade was disappointing as others took advantage of relaxed rules about saving sun beds..... apart from that everything was lovely.

Lovely hotel.

Posted 03-Jul-2017
A lovely hotel in a lovely location. We had a 2 bedroom apartment it was lovely and clean and very spacious. Adults only pool was a added bonus seeing we were on a long weekend break without kids so was lovely. Close to the beach, lovely cocktails, pool tables and good entertainment. The only negative comment would be that it took ages to check in. But overall a lovely place and will def be returning. Thanks

A pleasant Hotel near to the beach

Posted 02-Jul-2017
Pros: Facilities are good.
Location: Good local restaurants and beach nearby.
I was pleasantly surprised how good this Hotel was. In close proximity to local facilities and with on site evening entertainment. The rooms are clean and spacious. The balcony is small with no direct sunlight though.

Lovely resort for a sunny holiday

Posted 17-Apr-2017
overall a lovely resort, very clean & well looked after. We had a suite with 2 bedrooms - very comfy beds & a lovely balconey looking over the pool & towards the sea. You will need a car to find real Spain, but still some good restaurants nearby - the Argentinan Grill does wonderful steaks!

Disappointing

Posted 10-Feb-2017 on Hotels
A very disappointing stay , the room looked nothing like the photographs on the website , the room smelt stale the bed was very uncomfortable . The room was in need of a refurbishment so If you want to take a trip back to the early 1990's then book this hotel !

Will definetly return.

Posted 28-Jan-2017
I brought my niece to the Done Lola for a short break. This was the first time she has been to Spain. She was speechless ... our apartment was on the beach front, the view was fantastic. The rooms were excellent, clean, modern ,well maintained. Staff helpful and friendly. Will return again , this time my husband wants to come .....oh well can't have everything !!!
