I spent 2 nights in this hotel but I wish I stayed longer. This hotel has a beautiful garden, you can hide next to the spacious pool and listen to cows honking in the distance and look on the green hills. The interiors are nicely decorated, my room was very spacious, I liked the small patio with a Buddha in... More

I always use trip advisor and on remote adventures it has helped me find good comfort. This stay at Punta Sur was NOT what I expected. I would have to say it was more like glamorous camping AKA Glamping than staying at a proper hotel. Now, I understand this is a bit rural (to say the least) so I booked... More

This is a very comfortable hotel that has an air old world charm and elegance. The bungalows are fantastic, the saltwater pool and grounds are lovely, as are the peacocks roaming in the landscaped gardens. Just across the road from the ocean, the service is great, relaxed and the place has a comfortable family air about it. Not for those... More

This hotel maintains a fantastic balance of unobtrusive friendliness. The environment is charming. It is a perfect relaxing base from which to enjoy the fantastic water sports, notably kite surfing, and the beach bars and restaurants both in and around Tarifa.

this hotel was quite good, nice pool and green area, look out for the peacocks freely roaming around, we stayed in a suite which was a good size and balcony area, thou suite was good it is a bit outdated and in need of a spruce up, reception and bar area understaffed.

Stayed for two nights on a road trip, first good thing about Punta Sur is that is really easy to find on the main road out of Tarifa. I'd call it a Ranch type main building large and well maintained, accomodation is in seperate single storey units in extensive grounds. The room we had was spacious, clean and well equiped,... More

The rooms were comfy and simple, food in the restaurant was impeccable, lovely pool, friendly staff, great for families and a very friendly environment. However, only really suitable if you're ok with driving in and out to Tarifa.

Spent a night in hotel punta sur while visiting tarifa. Very easy to find, just past tarifa. Beutiful grounds and pool area. Rooms are basic enough but has everything you need. Don't know if I'd like to stay in those rooms for more than a few days, they are a little cold (feeling wise, not temp wise). Staff were very... More

Great rooms with own terrace, Restaurant and service were excellent. Only point of improval is the hardness of the mattress of the bed we slept in. Bathroom was design, with a beautiful bathtub. Peacocks roam around the terrace.
