It has been 9 years since our last visit to Tarifa, and this one was just a long weekend getaway. After a great deal of Internet searching I found Convento, and what a great find. Some mixed reviews, but lots of good ones and it looked great on the photos. We stayed four nights in May, with our 4 year... More

Friendly reception, all staff helpful and polite. Spacious room, nicely decorated, great shower. Room totally quiet. Highly recommended for a relaxing stay in Tarifa. Good parking arrangements with secure parking building a short walk away (parking on street is almost impossible)

This place is loaded with charm: it's small, cozy, serene, and very comfortable. We spent two nights here, as a jumping off point for a day trip to Tangier. Frankly, the biggest challenge was making a reservation, as their web site never worked while I was planning my trip. I ultimately made my arrangements through another travel website, and all...

My wife, son and I booked this hotel the day before going there and despite it being on a very main street which we knew we couldn't place it. When we arrived at the address you walk in past a cute little cafe into a beautifully finished hotel. There are not many rooms but they are fantasitcally done. The only... More

Ac works well & the rooms are clean. It is a 5 min walk to the ferry from the hotel. It is just outside of the city walls (2 blocks). The people who run it are very nice & try to make your stay a pleasant one.

After the debacle of 'upmarket' Koala, searched for an alternative room and found a double room here at Convento. We could have had a larger room but the quiet room with air-con, sizeable bathroom was totally apt. Not frills here. It's a simple but very clean, friendly establishment. Breakfast was served in the cafe and the young staff were always... More

Very nice small hotel (only 10 rooms) just outside the old city. Nice and friendly staff. Choose a suite, it is not a big difference on the price. They have a connecting door to standard room. Clean and fresh. You can pay ekstra for parking to blocks away from the hotel. Breakfast is also ekstra, it's ok but nothing more.... More

On a day visit to Tarifa with friends we came across a "little" shop selling ice creams so escaped the heat to go inside and relax with lovely Carte d'Or ice creams. There was a lounge/cafe area behind the shop and it was only then that we discovered the "little" shop was actually part of an hotel. Didn't go to... More

Rooms at Convento Tarifa are well-appointed & spacious. Bathrooms are clean with all amenities. Excellent service. Great location! The hotel is centrally located and you could walk to the Old Town, the beach and the port. We took the ferry to Tangier, Morocco for a day trip. The breakfast was terrible, you could skip it. The restaurant food for dinner... More
