We stayed at this hotel for 4 days in July as part of a touring holiday in Andalucía. The biggest positive about this hotel is its location, literally on the beach and walking distance to the nice bars and restaurants in the town. The rooms are a good size, a little dated, but clean, air conditioned and the beds comfy.... More

Zahara de los Atunes has to be one of the best kept secrets on the Costa de la Luz coast. This hotel built in 1989 has the best location and we booked it having visited the town on other occasions. We chose the sea view which had a premium but worth paying and booked half board as it was low... More

We stayed at the Gran Sol last week for three nights. Zahara is a fantastic resort - its much busier than it used to be and parking is now a challenge but its still has an unspoilt feel about it. We have been been coming to this family run Hotel for about 20 years now and remember it before it... More

After a trip to Zahara in July 2013 we couldn't resist a few days detour last weeks on a trip to Marbella. Zahara is one of those nearly totally Spanish resorts which wont stay that way for too long as it is absolutely lovely and a total foodie place. It was our first time in Gran Sol which is in...

The hotel is located on an exceptional place in one of the best beaches in Spain. Is a bit old fashioned and it needs a renovation. The only updated thing is the price. Little bit expensive. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. Personnel is kind and helpfull and the beach is in front of the gate.

We returned to this beautifully located hotel for lunch only because the top three rated restaurants in Zahara were closed - it would be helpful were Trip Advisor to give an indication where establishments enact extended seasonal closures? As on our previous visit 3 years ago the quality of cuisine failed to match the panoramic views. Clean, courteous and with... More

Quiet location. Beautiful views from rooms. We payed little extra for overlooking the sea. The hotel is clean.The girl in the reception was very helpful upgrading us after one night in a very small terrible room. We had half board. Waste of money, the food was very average. And in Zahara de los Atunes you eat very good for less... More

Perfectly situated - on the magnificent beach. Perfect service - lovely staff. Perfect room cleaning - unobtrusive and efficient. Perfect decor - not too fussy, boring or over the top. Perfect breakfast - provided you go early. The hotel was completely full when we went and got very very busy for breakfast. Not quite perfect parking - very busy when... More
