Reviewed 14 October 2016

The location was very impressive, a few hundred yards from the main road, you could barely hear any traffic noise. The layout of the rooms and amenities was very well thought out, and very rural. The room we stayed in was 105, I think this is probably the best room in the place, as it is twice as large as the other sea and mounting facing rooms, you will pay a very slightly higher price for this room, believe me when I say it is worth it. The restaurant (we hadn't realised) closed down on the 24th of September, we arrived on the 8th of October, this was however not a problem for the staff there as they opened up again for us and the other clientele. My wife and I ate a full English breakfast there every morning, (although the eggs, bacon, and sausages) were only Luke warm to almost cold, perhaps the management can look into this, the 2 time we ate an evening meal there, the food was delicious, and we would like to thank them for catering for us out of season. Over all a great friendly place, we would defiantly stay there again. The location is also only about 3/4s of a kilometre from one of the most awesome kite and wind surfing beaches in Tariff.

Room Tip: If you can get it, book room 105.

We spent one week here and had a lovely stay. The hotel manager was quite friendly and offered to change us to a different room with a terrace, when we asked for such a possibility. the rest of the staff was also kind and we felt like being at home. the location is not right on the beach but very close to the beach where all wind- and kitesurfers go. our room was spacious and the wifi worked perfectly well!

We loved the hotel. The place was amazing and the staff were really helpful. You can relax at the restaurant while the kids can play pin pon or be swimming at the pool as it is just beside the restaurant. It is surrounded with plants and trees. The rooms are large and kept to a high standard with a/c.
We eat at the restaurant at night and the food was delicious.

As mentioned in the title of the review this place is very relaxing and yet still Very close to Valdevaqueros beach, one of the most crowded and crazy beach ever.
It comes with tennis table, tennis and a nice pool.
Silent and cool..
Most of the rooms offer a sight of the ocean and therefore of all the kites flying around ( you got plenty of 'em here..).
The guy at the reception anyway must have some major issue with life since it's everything but kind and smiley.
A bit overpriced in my opinion, but i also reserved it very late and for a very high season period..

Fabricio Thanks for your stay in our room 23.
I hope to see us soon by the Dulce Nombre.
Just 1 thing, we have seen 2 times in 6 days, checkin on arrival and departure to store suitcases. I have no problem, just have to park well, the laundry service in August is very difficult and if you need help with luggage is good to say.
I hope you have a good trip .
Thank you

Stayed there for one night! Nice place with a great pool and good views on Morocco. Rooms were quite ok. The hotel had a bit of a deserted feeling. Parking just in front of the hotel. The amazing dunes with a view on the ocean are a short drive away to the right. One of the best views I ever had in Spain! The charming city of Tarifa is a 10 minutes drive to the left. Tarifa town offers some nice restaurants and bars. Very cool vibe there because of the surfers.

My husband and I visited Tarifa recently and got the chance to stay at this family owned hotel. Is not concentrically located, but a taxi driver will easily take you there as this place is very well know by locals. It took time for the person at the reception to warm up but we finally got a smile out of him. We were tired and hungry at the time of our arrival. There is a restaurant on the grounds but it was not open at that moment.The chef who is also a member of the family, graciously asked us what we would like for lunch and went ahead and prepared us a delicious meal. We really did not have to go outside the hotel for our meals but rather stayed there since Jose -the chef- and Antonia _a server at the restaurant- went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. Jose prepared a beautiful paella for 2, but actually 4 people could have eaten out of it, also Jose prepared a fabulous drink for my husband. The place is 15 minutes walking distance to the beach full of kite surfers, the view was spectacular!! our room was very comfortable with a view. And yes, i will stay there again.
