Very good value, I would definely return to... More

A very clean and friendly place to enjoy your stay. Friendly and hepfull staff. In the morning breakfast is served untill 11.00. The continental breakfast is so ample, it makes it difficult to choose. Any special request will be fulfilled by the staff, so whatever type of diet...no problem here!

Very friendly Dutch owners and English assistant. Nice roof terrace. Best breakfast in the 2 weeks (6 hotels) my wife and I have had whilst in Spain. Bus service to Puerto Banus just100 yards away. A simple unpretentious hotel which grows on you. An excellent selection of bars and restaurants within walking distance.

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
