Dear Sir Thanks a lot for those acknowlledgments. The breakfast that is included in the price of the room, is the typical "continental breakfast". Anyway we will try to improve it with some extras. Best regards. The Palomar de la Breña team. More

The three guys who dreamed twenty-five years ago this singular rural hotel, Eric, Chema and José Luis have a special sensitivity to preserve the ethnographic heritage of this natural park area. They have become a 18th century plot and house, dedicated to the breeding of carrier doves and show the palomar (Dovecote). You are already in one of the three... More

I did not stay at this hotel. It is in a pine forest above the sea .... very rural. I went with friends who wanted to show us a "surprise". We walked through the lobby and out into an amazing structure... an ancient pigeon coop! Sounds crazy but it as really a beautiful sight to see!

We have stayed in Palomar de la Brena many times over the past 6 years, and continue to do so. Staff/owners very friendly and helpfull on all occasions. The one chef restaurant serves the finest food I have eaten, it's not cheap, but the best quality rarely is. Set in very quite countryside, close to the beach at Canos de... More

As a solo female traveller and loving nature and birdwatching, the attraction is a glorious match as the rural house is set in a nature reserve surrrounded with plenty of walks thereby affording me the chance to enjoy nature and birdwatch. The scenery around this area is beautiful as you are also close to the coastline and other typically spanish... More

This is our second time here and will not be our last. The peace and tranquility of this hotel are idyllic and just the kind of place to get away from it all and unwind. The rooms are rustic in appearance and very clean and comfortable. We chose this as the first week of a two week Birding holiday because... More

This is a wonderful place. Laid back, rustic and friendly. We stayed four nights and left very satisfied. Our room was a bit damp but we were provided with enough fans. Also the breakfast was a bit on the simple side, a yoghurt or two wouldn't go amiss. However, these are minor issues. The restaurant is fantastic, fresh fish done... More

We chose this hotel because of the location, in the middle of the park and surrounded by pine trees. So the location is excellent and provides you quiet sleeping. The surroundings and the impressing dovecote are worth staying here. But the room was worse than expected, considering the price. It wasn't dirty, but neither extremely clean. Most of the furniture... More

Originally we did not plan to stop there, and was nicely surprised by this place not like others. It is actually not easy to find - from the main road between Barbate and Los Canos de la Meca you go in direction of San Ambrosio and once you see a pigeon sign, you follow it till you see the white...

We chose El Palomar because we wanted a base for walking in the pine woods of Parque Natural de Acantilado and it was perfect for this. Other reviewers have described the hotel rooms below in much detail; we would confirm our room was comfortable, clean and fit for purpose. We enjoyed two dinners and the cooking was very good. We...
