We wanted to stay in San Jose and booked this hostal based on trip advisor reviews. It was about 5 minute walk to the town and beach, which meant it was nice and quite, but very convenient. The manager / owner was so helpful and friendly. The room was good for a hostal with air conditioning and a ceiling fan.... More

This is decent, simple little hotel, in central San Jose, a slow 5 minutes walk from the main beach, and near the centre of town. Clean, pleseant rooms, friendly owners, good breakfast, free parking nearby, and a good base to explore Cabo de Gata.

The hostal Puerto Genoves was a good place to stay, about five minutes walk from the beach and the small central town area. The room was good sized, great shower, good terrace and a cool basement room that had a large kid play area and sitting space. The breakfast was good, generous, with good coffee. The owner was helpful, and... More

This place was easy to find in San Jose. The room is simple and clean, free wifi available in the room. The breakfast was again simple but perfectly enough and actually provided a lot of choice. We stayed there for 3 nights and the room was cleaned each morning.

The hotel actually did not provided the room as booked on the website. The room was clean, the ambience in the premises stuffed with "bartulos", sometimes less is more when it comes to interior design. Located close to the city center, although the San Jose beach would be the last to stay on. After we pointed out that we did... More

We only stayed one night in this lovely hostal and we will definitely return. We had a twin room with an extra bed for the little monster. Room comfortable, child friendly accommodation, nice breakfast in the morning and the Sunday market right outside our hotel in the morning!

This little hostal is located in San Jose, 100 metres only from the nearest beach and one kilometre from the marvellous Cabo de Gata Natural Park. Only for this, this accomodation is worth because the Natural Park is highly enjoyable. Rooms were clean and correct, they have a small fridge and safety lock, air conditioning, t.v and a table with... More

San Jose is not your average Spanish Costa resort. Situated in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, San Jose is still a little village, albeit with all the amenities. The lack of high rise buildings and big hotels and apartment complex means limited accommodation available in town. The hostal (not to be confused with 'hostel' despite the similar pronounciation) is... More

The accommodation is spacious, well-appointed, clean and flooded with natural light. Our host was warm and friendly, personally served a delicious breakfast (catering for Spanish and other tastes) and coped very well with our few words of Spanish. He catered for our every need (beach towels included). San Jose is a delightful little oasis with a lovely beach, lots of... More
