Small room, no towel, noisy aircon. Very basic. Good enough breakfast. Booking .com never told them I was late check in... They said they were going to sell in my room which would have been interesting if they had managed.......all in all, basic hotel and not that cheap at €95 per night....

A warm welcoming hotel situated in a local area, away from the hustle of Puerto Banus. Staff very friendly, bed comfortable, quiet place, breakfast good quality with several meat choices and freshly made eggs. Best price/quality ratio around.

I've just returned today from a two day business trip arranged at the last minute. I picked this little hotel because it was near where I had to go and because of price. Booked just twenty four hours before my trip, it was a third of the price of many bigger hotels in or near Marbella on the booking websites....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Dona Catalina*** is located in the centre of San Pedro de Alcantara, just 5 minutes drive from the glamorous marinas of Marbella and Puerto Banus. The hotel is a stone's throw away from the church square 'Plaza de la Iglesia' and is surrounded by good restaurants and tapas bars. In the picturesque, orange tree-lined pedestrian shopping street, round the corner from the hotel, you will find welcoming terraces where you can enjoy the 'Spanish lifestyle' until the early hours. For golfers, the Hotel Dona Catalina is an ideal base, with so many beautiful golf courses within easy reach. If soaking up the sun is more your thing, then an easy, pleasant 20 minute walk brings you to the palm-trees, chiringuitos (beach bars), sand and sea of San Pedro beach. Dona Catalina offers 39 very clean and comfortable en-suite rooms, all equipped with satellite T.V. and air-conditioning/heating. Free WiFi is available in all our rooms and throughout the public areas of the hotel. In our 24-hour Reception we are more than pleased to advise you about local golf courses, places to eat and drink and any other local information you may require. ... more   less
