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.

I booked two rooms at this hotel. One for my cousin, who unfortunately became ill and was unable to travel. So I cancelled one room, the dearer of the two. However on arrival at the hotel we were told that they had over booked and had placed us in their other hotel, "El Sotillo". We had booked the Dona Pakyta... More

San Jose is a nice place to stay as the coast in Spain is sometimes not so beautyful (big buildings etc). It was very quiet at the time. It is a small location, touristic but not "overbuilt" and with beautyful beaches and coast-walks (but with hills, not suited in a hot summer). Good for a break in May. We had... More
