About the hotel
Only a handful of Spanish hotels bearing the covered Grand Deluxe rating, the Gran Melia Don Pepe occupies a fantastic beachfront location just outside the town of Marbella and 3 1/2 miles from Puerto Banus. Standing in six acres of beautifully kept gardens, complete with flowers, palm trees and immaculate lawns, the hotel exudes a luxurious and totally relaxing feel. The grand reception area has an attractive pond and fountain, while the subtle use of plants and lighting throughout the hotel helps to create an atmosphere of calm and intimacy.From the terraces, guests can enjoy fantastic views of the sub-tropical gardens and the Mediterranean, thanks to the hotel's imposing sea front location, yet it is only a short distance from the center of New Marbella and 2 1/2 miles from the Golf Valley. Once a year the Gran Melia Don Pepe sponsors a tournament at nearby Aloha, but golfers staying at the hotel can take advantage of the agreements built up over a number of years with all the best courses on the coast.
