We had a wonderful room overlooking the sea with a terrace, very spacious bedroom and bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was lovely with so much choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, meat, cheese, pastries and breads, more than enough to start the day. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The position of the hotel was perfect, just a... More

This hotel is slap bang on the nicest part of the beach as San Jose and the public areas are smashing. However besides the reception and beach bar staff, who were charming, the service was poor and the place was a little run down. The staff seemed generally unhappy. The breakfast was a bit average considering the cost of the... More

We stayed a couple of nights here. As others have said - the staff are helpful and friendly, the public areas are spacious - actually everywhere is spacious. Our room overlooked the sea (no balcony though) and it was huge, with a fairly large bathroom. The wifi only worked for my phone when I was downstairs in the public areas.... More

There really is lots to like about this hotel. The staff are charming and helpful, it is the best located hotel in San Jose, the public rooms are full of comfy chairs and sofas, the Wi-Fi works pretty well, the breakfast buffet is very good, if you take a room with a terrace you will find it large and sunny,...

We arrived at lunchtime on Christmas Eve and stayed until Boxing day (26th December). I had already stated that my husband was in a wheelchair, though he could manage a few steps. We were booked into a disabled room on the ground floor and although there are four steep steps down into the foyer, there is a platform lift provided.... More

Just a lovely location. Really Spanish, first class hotel, lovely service etc. we had a brilliant room overlooking the Med. We asked for a sea view when booking and that was what we got! Hotel is on the beach, access via the bar terrace, or from the car park. It's a tad steep, but well worth it. Will go back... More

We were conned into paying extra for a terrace room as the others were untruthfully said to be full. Terrace is not private; a string separates you from your neighbours. No off street parking. WiFi did not work nor internet from an old illegal Windows XP PC. Only local Spanish channels on TV. After the superb Parador in Lorca everything... More

San Jose is a laid back town on a sheltered cove. The Dona Pakyta Hotel is a stylish and friendly hotel overlooking the cove with a path leading past the beach bar to the sea. We were given an apartment with its own terrace - fabulous for sitting out with a G&T before wandering down to town to sample the... More

We stayed longer than most here but had a thoroughly good time. Hotel clean and views spectacular. Staff are very nice and helpful. Breakfast basic but enough choice. No hot food but fresh fruit, cereal and lovely bread and cheeses, but view across bay beats any view ive had from other hotels. Could eat in hotel but we decided to... More

The hotel sits on top of the beach, a few steps away from the sand. We stayed in a fantastic room with sea view from the balcony. Breakfast in the restaurant shared the similar amazing views. San Jose is a buzzing but not massive resort with plenty of great bars, restaurants and market stalls.
