We stayed here for 3 nights during our tour of Andalucia The hotel is right in the centre, although most hotels here would be close. The second floor room we had, had a small verandah with table and chairs at the front of the hotel, however the sun has gone from the area by late afternoon. The room was very... More

It is a cousy hotel with a very friendly staff. The breakfast is great and you can have it in the patio looking at the blue sky of San Jose. The rooms are small but the bed is really a good one. The restaurant is outstanding although i think it is expensive but we enjoyed a great lunch with very... More

The hotel is just a few yards off the main street but it is amazingly quiet. The rooms are very comfortable and have a balcony that you can sit our on. The air conditioning was excellent but the wifi was weak. The hotel has some good areas to relax in and the breakfast was fine. It's a great place to... More

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
