I have stayed here several times since my last review which was not a ringing endorsement. Why, owners come and go, some are better than others, now that the owner is back and has been for while Escondite is even better now. Gone is the breakfast, rooms are secure and clean. Staffed at night. Everything you would expect from a... More

The couple that owns this place are super-nice, friendly and helpful. They have renovated an ancient building in a very creative way. (The transparent bathroom gets a bit of getting used to!) Unfortunately, some of the fantastic, modern updates are showing some wear around the edges. Perhaps they should have forgone some of the fancier decor choices for more easily... More

We stayed here twice. Once on our way to morrocco and then after our trip. The owner Alehandra was very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. She is really a lovely person and cares about providing exceptional service. Tarifa is a great beach town and this hotel is close to everything. We will stay there again in the future.

Nice little hotel with very friendly and welcoming host. She gave some good recommendations for things to see and restaurants to go. No breakfast but enough nice places nearby (try the muesli in Cafe Diez). Our room was spacious and very clean with memory foam beds, for a good night sleep. One little thing: bathroom has a glass wall, including... More

We've had a great week at Hotel El Escondite del Viento. A modern, beautiful, small hotel in the center of the Old town of Tarifa. Located in a quiet street. Nice and clean rooms. Good Beds. Friendly staff. And every morning a delicious breakfast to start your day. Highly recommended if you're planning a holiday to Tarifa!

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. Service is very friendly. The location is charming. Next to Tarifa's cafes and lovely cobbled streets. We have stayed at El Escondite del Viento twice. Once with kids and once without. At both occassions we have been very happy with the hotel and the service we have received there.
