Came to Rota to look around the beach, it is a lovely clean beach and the Hotel runs right along the front. We stopped for refreshments, we had some amazing tapas, I especially liked the Russian salad and they were all priced at €2.50.

Beautiful old style hotel, very quiet yet right at the beach. Good food and a good variety of wines. Nice clean rooms with excellent service . Fine gardens with a beautiful swimming pool. Lounge space with another swimming pool. We are going to return there soon!

The hotel could not be in a better location. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Our room was excellent with a lovely sea view, very clean and spacious. The restaurant was self service with a wide variety of dishes to choose from, plus a good wine list. We look forward to returning later in the year.

Just had a 4 night stay at this hotel over the MotoGP weekend in Jerez. Check in was quick and easy, room was basic but clean and comfortable with a really good bathroom. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but that seems normal in Spain so not a complaint, just something to be aware of. This is... More

We asked for the same room as last year and got it. A spacious junior suite with a garden near the pool and a sea view... More

The Playa is a beautiful old hotel that has retained its charm. We had a mini suite overlooking the beautiful courtyard and pool. We also could walk to the sun deck on the roof and watch the sun set over the Atlantic. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice bar overlooking the pool. Several nice restaurants within easy walking distance. 5... More

Rooms were small and basic but service was very good. The rooms overlook the pool and the street below. The beds are small but the view is great. The bar is very nice and the bartender was a true character.
