We've been going to this hotel for the past four years and it never disappoints. Although it does not have a pool and the rooms are very small and quirky, it is totally made up for the stunning terraces and fantastic restaurant. Staff are extremely friendly and the beaches are about 20 mins away. We only stay for one night... More

The city of Vejer de la Frontera is very beautiful... it seems like a morrocan city in the middle of Europe... it´s a very beautiful region. The hotel is very good, the room size and the bathroom ... i like to emphasize that, because for us, non-europpean (Im brazilian) most of the europeans hotels are very small... and this one... More

We spent the evening and night at this great hotel, we were there to meet friends and have a meal. The hotel staff were very helpful especially Ana on reception. Hotel made up of 10 moorish houses so the entire building is very quirky and great fun to explore.

I came to Vejer for a wedding and had booked my hotel room many months prior. At the last minute I was able to come a day earlier and the hotel was accommodating and able to squeeze me in. It was a different room the first night but they did fine me a place to sleep. The Hotel is built... More

This is our favourite place to stay anywhere. We've been coming to Costa de la Luz for 12 years and ever since we tried out this gem of a hotel 5 years ago, we stay nowhere else when in the area. The hotel comprises 10 cobbled together Moorish houses on Vejer's most beautiful square. Every room is individually and tastefully... More

We loved this hotel and wish we could have stayed longer than our two days. Breathtaking views, excellent service, charming restaurant. Our room was comfortable and very tastefully decorated in a moorish style like the rest of the hotel. The restaurant is extremely popular so make reservations well in advance if you wish to dine here.

The Califa, owned and managed by James Stuart and his business partner Regle, must rank as one of the most unusual, charming and wonderful hotels in Spain. Fabulous, friendly staff. A wonderful atmosphere and imaginative use of an old Moorish building and fantastic value for money. If you want trouser presses and mini bars then go somewhere else. If you... More

We showed up without a reservation as we were doing a road trip along the Spanish coast so they gave us the only room they had available. It was down a few flights of stairs so carrying our bags was a struggle, and the room had a damp smell with no light coming in. I'm sure they have nicer rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here last August with some friends while in the area for a wedding. The hotel is situated in the middle of the town's main square, overlooking a pretty fountain. It is a collection of corridors, courtyards and rooms on various levels which all lend to the quirky nature of the place. The town is medieval... More

So yes, there are quirks to this hotel, but it's in the middle of a very old city...so it's sort of to be expected. The hotel and all it's many rooms are beautiful and not like any place we've ever stayed. The views are magnificent; there is a game room for the kids to hang out in; a room top... More
