We stayed for a week in this delightful hotel at the beginning of April. We had been notified by email of the road closure so had no problems finding the hotel. Our room overlooked the square affording many opportunities to people watch. It was quirky, having irregular walls but this added to the charm. The king size bed was very...

We selected this idiosyncratic hotel following a review in the Daily Telegraph. It is on the edge of a hilltop "Pueblo Blanco" looking south towards the Atlantic and situated mid way between Gibraltar and Cadiz. Access up a steep road would have been fine had the road not been closed a few days earlier. There is only one other road...

This was our second stay at the Califa and it was as good as the previous stay. This is certainly not a chain hotel and is all the better for that. In advance of our stay the Califa had very helpfully let us know about temporary road closures.

We stayed for a couple days at this wonderful place. It is a bit more on the expensive side but worth the money. Staff is very friendly, the views from the room are fantastic and the restaurant very high quality.

This hotel is everything it advertises itself to be and more. It has all these delightful rooms and passageways to enjoy. Stairs and hallways lead you in surprising directions to beautiful vistas. The restaurant is very attractive and contains a very pleasant outdoor courtyard where you can enjoy a very generous breakfast. There's an outdoor terrace with a great view...

Highly individual hotel with lovely friendly atmosphere. The only reason not to stay here is if you don't like stairs! We had 3 different rooms for our group, including the Attic which is WAY at the top. All individual and delightful. We tended to gather near the one that had its own terrace just outside - perfect for that evening...

We stayed at Hotel La Casa del Califa for one night in March 2017. It's a boutique style hotel in a central location. In terms of decoration and floor tiles, the room was lovely and charming. However, we did not have a good sleep as we were given the room ''NUMBER 18'', which was right next to the reception desk...

I would love to give 4.5 stars, but not an option. The hotel was almost perfect. Arriving was a bit difficult as there were various road closures into town and near the hotel itself, which were of course not the hotel's fault, but given we had been emailing back and forth over the couple of days before I arrived it...

Service was very friendly. There is a Moroccan restaurant attached to the hotel. Free WiFi available with good reception throughout. Great view from the terrace balcony. Breakfast available, but did not try. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom very roomy, but wasn't too sure about the rustic floor when wet. Not really a problem, though and still liked the room a lot....

Loved hotel location and food! Lots of stairs but definitely worth it. Beautiful quiet little town to visit. Hotel and food best ever. Views magnificent. Two nights were enough to see everything and relax.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Casa del Califa is Vejer's No.1 hotel, which since its founding in 2001 has become a favourite place to stay in Andalucia for travellers and Spaniards alike. The Califa's origins date back to the 10th century, with the building sitting in the heart of Vejer in the palm filled Plaza de España. The historic hotel offers views across the marshes, forests, and hills of the Atlantic coast. The Califa offers a wide range of rooms, from simple doubles to luxurious suites, catering to guests of all tastes. The rooms are spread out among interwoven buildings linked by staircases and courtyards, with a characteristic Andalucian patio garden at its heart. The Califa is the ideal place from which to explore the Atlantic Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) & the 'Sierras' of Cádiz. The cultural and outdoor attractions are endless: walking, bike riding, trekking, birdwatching, painting, visiting Cape Trafalgar, seafaring Cádiz, long empty beaches, quiet palm-filled plazas, the sherry bodegas of Jerez, kitesurfing, horseback riding through pine forests, a day trip to Tangiers, sunset drinks on the hotel terrace, magical white towns...all this and more is a daily experience at La Casa del Califa. In our small and intimate hotel, you will find just the right balance of comfort and decor combined with wonderful views, tranquility, and of course excellent service. Convenient private covered parking is located just 80m. from the hotel. ... more   less
