This is the ultimate chill out hotel. Several room types, ie hotel rooms, bunglows with view, without view, sea view and luxury ones with a lounge, i like the sea view bungalows best, they have sheltered terraces with loungers, where you can sit in comfort even on very windy days, - all the bungalows have terraces and loungers. Decoration may... More

Just back from a long Bank Holiday weekend at this hotel. Had 2 bungalows, the best for views was Bungalow 35 but 48 was equally good and probably in the middle of summer could prove the quieter option. Wonderful welcoming staff, always willing to help and assist with any queries and directions. We ate Dinner one night at the Hotel... More

The hotel is actually about 5 minutes west of Tarifa on the road towards Cadiz. We arrived very late and were able to request a late check out of 2 p.m. at no extra charge. We stayed in a bungalow with a seaview, very close to the on site stables. Huge bathroom and large bedroom. Breakfast was very good, hot... More

Tarifa is a special place and the Dos Mares is a special hotel. However, both are cheap which attracts the wrong crowd at times. The hotel has so much potential given the location but they just don't try hard enough. Service is good which isn't standard for Spanish hotels. There is however one room that is very special but I... More

The set up of this hotel is great - great location and it looks nice. But, the service is seriously lacking and it really kind of ruined our stay. We were charged for a crib - 20€ for one night. And then we realized that it was broken. It didn't look hazardous and it was 9:30pm, so we just used... More

Location is fantastic, food is great, atmosphere super. I am a kitesurfer and for this reason I come every year to this hotel to enjoy a fantasitc holiday. The wind can be pretty strong so if you dont like that, it can spoil your stay. Otherwise it's really great. Kitesurfing from right in front of the hotel.

A fantastic stay in both a bungalow and in one of the hotel bedrooms. Both were excellent. Super breakfast and outlook from the restaurant directly into the beach. The rooms were both clean with fantastic, powerful shower. Our daughter particularly enjoyed the breakfast! We would highly recommend the hotel to others and stay again.

Just returned from another wonderful 2 night stay. Lovely sea front bungalow. Great atmosphere in the bar by the fire, nice staff, clean rooms. Can't say enough about Dos Mares- it feels like home away from home. Thanks to all and can't wait to get back there.
