We decided to spend a night here on a Friend's recommendation and so glad we did in the week between Christmas & New Year, to relax and unwind. This hotel certainly achieved that for us. After checking in, we sat at the poolside sipping wine and chatting for an hour or so as the weather was fabulous. The owners are... More

This is a difficult review for me, as I feel the family who own and run this Family Hotel are very genuine, but maybe require another opinion on its current state. It is a little off the beaten track in a very small seaside town along the Almeria National Park. I will say they are very welcoming and the food... More

I can only comment on the restaurant at the Hotel Family as we did not stay here whilst on our recent visit to Agua. We have dined here several times over the years and the food never fails to please. It is slightly different from other restaurants in the area in that dinner is served a little earlier and the...

We booked fairly late and so had no room choice. We were in the Laurel which is at the back of the hotel, has no view but does have access to a shared covered patio. The rooms were rustic, with ugly curtains which consisted of a shaggy Moroccan rug and sagging orange net curtains.The bed was comfortable and clean- in... More

This is like a snapshot of how things were 30 years ago . Huge portions , old fashioned country food , big flavours . Certainly a sea change from our normal choice , but surprisingly enjoyable , and although full for Sunday lunch , the service never faltered . French owned and run , but with a strong North African... More

From arriving to departing everything was excellent. The room was very good and the evening meal was enjoyed by all our party. The lamb was first class. I would recommend a stay at this hotel without hesitation. (All our rooms were on the first floor and there is no lift.)

It had been several years since we had stayed at the Hotel Family and we were hoping that standards had not fallen at this little hotel which had left us with such fond memories. We were six friends intending to visit the Cabo de Gata National Park one day and Oasys Mini Hollywood at Tabernas the following and we needed... More

What a lovely welcome we received upon arrival having enjoyed a drive through some absolutely stunning scenery. The rooms are very comfortable and had everything needed for a pleasant stay. The beds are a good size and a good nights sleep was had by all of us. The evening meal was absolutely wonderful and we enjoyed over two hours of... More

Lovely people, clean room with really comfy beds, fab location, excellent service and food to die for. We only went for one night but would have loved to have stayed longer. This place was recommended to us by various people and I can see why.

This is the place to come for a great Sunday lunch but come hungry! French owned and run hotel and restaurant. Small menu but that's no criticism, the food is excellent from start to finish. The service is efficient and friendly, you won't be disappointed.
