Stayed just the one night after a day moving around the area to various bird-watching sites. Our first trip to Tarifa and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by Louis who showed us to our room and made us very welcome. The hotel was fine, very helpful and welcoming staff. The room was comfortable, clean and well... More

We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, the fantastic staff, the outdoor games in the cute garden, the hammocks, the dinner, the breakfast, the free wi-fi and the attention to detail apparent everywhere. Our bungalow was clean, fans are provided, there is a fridge, and we had all that was needed for a good night's sleep (we didn't mind the... More

We were on the road 140 nights, we stayed in all kinds of places. This was by far the worst night we had on the trip. We booked and paid for two nights, but left after one. I was happy to lose the money, as long as I didn't have to stay here another night. First, it is located 8K... More

I stayed at Brief Tarifa with my friend and our three teenage boys! (We only stayed for one night as we were staying at Calahonda for the week and treated ourselves to a stayover in Tarifa!) Tarifa itself is beautiful and brought back lots of memories of the surfing scene in Newquay, Cornwall! We arrived and checked in quickly! Our... More

Great garden, room ,view and ok breakfast BUT if you are over 30 and value a bit of peace to doze off on a hot afternoon don't bother coming. Speakers play music all day and eve with a dead base that infiltrates under your own headphones. Such a shame....

I stayed in Brief hotel last week during a flamenco-workshop from FLATT. I had a great time in the hotel. The manager and her staff are extremely friendly. I loved my room overlooking the garden and with oceanvieuw; it was big with a good bathroom, nice hot water. Light in the bathroom could be better. Lovely small balcony with 2... More

This is a 1-star hotel, not a hotel worth more than 40 Euros / night. The pool is actually a small dugout puddle of water - not what is shown on the internet. The family left lunch with a mild case of food poisoning after a consuming a very odd burger of some sort. The rooms give you the sense... More

The hotel reception smells bad, they tried to make it look good with a water feature but the water is stagnant and so it smells. The rooms are basic, there is so much noise you cannot sleep (the water pipes sound like a jet taking off), the balconies are dangeriously low and it is a rip off at €150 night... More

the hotel is perfectly positioned being just 400 mtrs from the fantastic Valdevaqueros beach and 10 mins drive from Tarifa town. It has a wonderful garden with charming pool, lots of chill out zones just to crash out and drift away to cool music gazing at the beautiful blue of the Atlantic ocean. The accommodation may lack a little finesse... More

Just come back from a two night stay at Hotel Brief Tarifa and felt they deserved a pretty good review. The location is good being on the main drag about 300m from the entry to the beach so you can walk it. The accommodation was fairly basic and the only reason I didn't give them five stars, because everything else... More
