Lovely hotel with family atmosphere and friendly staff, always making the best to help us. On request changed our room for better one - with large terrace and in the highest floor. The view at the sea and the whole city was just amazing. We also loved the breakfast with wide selection of food and chill music in the background.... More

The location gives great view of the town and the sea. My room had a large terrace. The hotel is built on the hillside in a way that probably gives all of the rooms a terrace with a view. The room was good sized and comfortable. The "fit and finish" wasn't great. I had the to struggle with the door... More

Booked this place for 4 nights based on the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Basic decor in the room but well equipped with a decent shower, air con, fridge and super view. Lovely continental breakfast. The only reason I've marked it down slightly is the bed was rather hard and the double bed had one long pillow along the width of... More

Excellent value for money hostal. We stayed in room 11, with the same views over the town as from the restaurant, down over the town to the port. A good place to watch the sun rise! The room was comfortable, clean and spacious, with excellent air-con and the bonus of a fridge. Good buffet breakfast taken in the restaurant, where... More

We stayed recently en el Dorado for 4 nights (room 33). It was brilliant. Very spacious, clean and quiet room with a private balcony overlooking the village /bay. Staff including Carmen and Sergio(?) were very attentive. We hired mountain bikes at the hostal to visit the nearby beaches (Monsul/Genoves). Otherwise, if you don't have a car - be aware there...

We have holidayed in San Jose about four times over the last 10 years and this is the best place we have stayed in. As most reviewers say, this will make you think again about staying in a hostal! The hotel is well situated close to the village so that it is a short walk to the bars and restaurants... More

Everything has been perfect, tidy room with TV and Air Con and a small fridge. We also Enjoyed the swimming pool a lot. The hostal Is close to the Cabo de gata Natural Park, 3 really nice beaches are part of the park. The only thing Could be better is the restaurant, nice atmosphere but not really good food.

We stayed 9 nights at Hostal el Dorado & can say that it is amazing for 2 stars.  Our room/suite was huge with stunning views over San Jose & out to the mediterranean sea.
