Have just returned from a last minute getaway to San Jose, and stayed at the Santuario San Jose. It was easy to find, as San Jose is really not that big. Parking was on the wide street. The only time we could not park near the hotel was Saturday lunchtime when we had to park on a gravelled area just... More

The hotel has a good location on a side street, it is close to restaurants, bars and shops, the staff was very helpful, the selection for the breakfast buffet was very good. San Jose is suitably located for exploring the Cabo de Gata national park

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We wanted to go to the beach one day and the man at reception (sorry, I've forgotten his name) gave us a big beach umbrella because he thought we would get burnt! The breakfast buffet is good and you can have it outside on the small patio.... More

We were looking forward to this hotel but it was a big disappointment. When booking on the web we asked for a non-smoking room with a balcony. We got neither. The smell of smoke was terrible. Honestly it was so bad. We complained and they moved us to another room for a night while they aired the room. I was... More

Good breakfast, great staff, lovely rooms. We were there on our 1yr wedding anniversary and they did a marvelous job with rose petals and cava. They gave us a large room up the top, the balcony was small but the room was larger than the others which we appreciated as we stayed there for 8 nights. Restaurant has a great... More

The hotel is in San Jose not far away from the beach by walk. The rooms are basic but everything is clean. The staff is friendly & helpful. There's room for improvements with the breakfast but this isn't so important when you are in Spain. We didn't test the restaurant which belongs to the hotel because we felt the prices... More

Location: Very close to restaurants and facilities such as supermarket, pharmacy and ATMs, so it's very convenient in the end of the day after returning from the beach not having to drive in order to have dinner. There is a beach quite close, but not so worthy when compared to the other beaches in the area, so you might have... More

Though San Jose was a bit of a disappointment, Santuario was very satisfactory. Close enough to the beach, well one of them. And within walking distance to dining. Unfortunately they were resurfacing their patio right outside our room. The odor was less than pleasing, and because of it, they closed their resturant for the time we were there. I would... More

Golden Buddhas, Persian rugs and Indonesian furniture make up the lobby of Santuario San José, add a smiling and friendly reception staff, clean and basic rooms, comfortable beds and you have a lot more for your cash than a 'hostel'. Included breakfast was typical 'continental style'. Yoghurts and cereal, pain-au-chocolate and croissants, brown and white rolls and bread. The usual... More

Both the day and night staff were exceptionally helpful and kind. The buffet breakfast was always fresh and generous---and coffee was prepared to order. They have highchairs (seems like a small thing, but it's a huge plus as few restaurants in town do)! The rooms are rather standard and the bed coverings are, perhaps, a bit dated...but overall, our experience... More
