Peniscola itself is classic Spanish beach-tourism territory, and so I didn't expect a lot, but this hotel, Mare Nostrum, turned out to offer the best value of any place I stayed on a 20-day car trip around Spain. True, it wasn't absolutely high season, but it was a warm and sunny Saturday in May; and for a mere 55 Euros... More

I pulled into Peñíscola on the afternoon of May Day, a national holiday. I was surprised to see it so busy. I had the idea there wouldn't be many people and I could stay in one of the big hotels for a song. Wrong! I was quoted prices of like 75 euros. So I drove down the esplanade toward the... More

Very clean well equipped, but simple rooms with sea view in excellent seafront location between the old town and the modern town centre. Parking at a reduced rate in the underground public carpark opposite. Breakfast in sunny rooftop room. lovely location but breakfast was the worst I have ever had in Spain. Portion control taken to extremes. Allocation of 1... More

Room was small but clean and well priced. We preferred the more expensive ocean view & beach side. The room came with a small terrace at no extra charge in the off season. 50 euroes per night. Staff spoke english and helped us get right to the tourist attractions that interested us. The endless beach must be spectacular in the... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We found it by sheer luck as there was free parking at the back of the hotel (actually its entrance). From our terrace to the left we saw the magnificent semicircular beach, and to the right protruded the magnificent castle with the old city inside its walls. The room was clean, although a bit...

The hotel itself is located in what we felt was the PERFECT spot. It is beachfront and just at the bottom of the road that leads up to the castle. It is within an easy walk to everywhere we wanted to be during our stay in Peñiscola. It felt like it was sort of in the center of everything -... More

We come to town late with no booking so took first room available. Double Room €73 with breakfast. Were concerned with it only being 1* but when entered the room were pleasantly surprised. Had a room with ocean view and view of the old peniscola town. Room reasonably clean, only complaint really was floor needed a good sweep. Excellent location... More
