“very good hotel in san jose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2011

Great hotel!!!!
Make sure you pick a room with balcony and window to the pool. Not streetside. Nice design of the hotel Very new. The breakfast lady could be a little bit more friendly.
I think it is the best location in san jose. Close to the restaurants as well. I would stay there again if I visit San Jose again. the showergel in the bath had a very nice smell. And it was in a normal shower gel tub that was already assembled on the wall. there was a fridge also in the room!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2009

We loved our stay here with private balcony, light airy room and comfortable bed. Hotel has a 80's condominium feel but room was clean, quiet and spacious. An in room safe was provided. Parking was at the rear of the building and there is an elevator inside. Hotel staff was also very helpful. Decent breakfast was included with selection of breads, cereals, yogurt, meats, cheese, juice and coffee. Several good restaurants and bakeries are also in town.

My only issue with this hotel is that the pillows were rock hard.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2008

We had a very enjoyable stay at La Posada de Paco in San Jose, Cabo de Gata. The hotel is modern with quite good facilities for a 2 star hotel. It is very central to all amenities in San Jose, the rooms are adequate: nice balcony but beds not really very comfortable.

It is a small hotel - only 20 rooms but was not full every night during our one week stay. Rooms are quite good for 2 star, size Ok, free room safe, nice balcony with chairs/table. The pool is small but adequate for the hotel size and with enough sunbeds to cope with the clientele visiting in September - in fact, there were very few availing of these facilities while were there. The pool area could do with a bit more landscaping, perhaps a few suitable plants?

The hotel has its own car park at the rear , which we used - probably more important during the high season, as parking was not a problem in San Jose when we were there.

The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. I booked via email (in Spanish) and they responded very quickly. Reception staff spoke English.

Breakfast is not particularly appealing for British (or probably Irish) guests, unless you like tostadas (baguette sliced lengthways and toasted - too hard for my liking). We opted for the mediocre small croissants with butter and jam. Coffee was Ok - you had to ask for another cup, but it was not a problem getting one. on the plus side, freshly squeezed orange juice was excellent. Tea was available but looked too weak, one bag in the pot variety, so we didn't try it. Hot chocolate in the form of Spanish brand Cola Cao was also available. Staff were concerned that we didn't like the tostadas and offered cereal, but we didn't take them up on the offer. I would suggest fruit and ham, cheese and eggs (boiled) could be offered.

Despite the shortcomings, I think that this hotel is good value for money and the staff are very pleasant and efficient. I would recommend it for young people looking for budget accommodation or older clientele for a short stay.

The main advantage is that San Jose is an excellent location for a holiday, as it retains a Spanish atmosphere, being geared for the Spanish domestic market. The beach is lovely in September, not a bit crowded and there is a good selection of restaurants in town so that you are guaranteed a different place to eat each night.

  • Liked — location and efficient, friendly staff
  • Disliked — beds not very comfortable
