“The best hotel in Tarifa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Great location, which makes it unfortunately a bit noisy with all the animation in the surrounding streets. The hotel is full of charm, and the town is real fun. The staff at the sacristia was helpful, only problem was shower water not always hot. Still, great overall experience, I recommand this hotel to everyone!

Dear client,

many thanks for your review and feedback. We are very pleased you had a good time with us and enjoyed your stay at La Posada.
We had some problems with the heater at that time that were sorted out as soon as we could. We do apologize because of that.

All the best.

We stayed at the Sacristia in early July and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We were there under some special circumstances and they did everything to make our stay comfortable. One night I mentioned to the receptionist that I hadn't slept well because I could hear another guest talking really loudly and she actually spoke to the woman about it. I couldn't believe it, I was almost embarased but to be fair, the woman was above normal loud. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, they rooms were perfect and the hotel was very clean. The location was great because we could walk out in Tarifa to anything and easily hoped in the car for longer trips. I wouldn't bother looking for another hotel, this is it.

Room Tip: They have a great guy who can come and give a variety of massages should you need one.

I have gone to Tarifa 8 times. Since my previous trips were windsurfing oriented, I stayed at some of the hotels outside Tarifa that had direct access to the windsurfing spots. In my last trip to Tarifa, I stayed at La Sacristia and I would like to highly recommend it. 4 of us stayed in La Sacristia in 4 bedrooms in the last floor of the hotel. We stayed there while we waited for the green light to swim across the Strait of Gibraltar. We could not have asked for a better experience. Everything about it exceeded our expectations, which were high to start with. Serafín and the hotel staff made us feel at home and consistently went out of their way to adapt to our strange times and unusual requests. The rooms were very comfortable, with all the modern amenities that you need. The location in the heart of the old town was unbeatable. The hotel was charming and a perfect mix of quaint and new. The house dates back to the XVII century and it has been renovated and converted into the very comfortable boutique hotel that it is today. Previous to this trip, I went to Tarifa for 1 day with the only objective to find a good hotel for our stay. La Sacristia was hands down and by far the best option. I highly and very confidently recommend La Sacristia for your stay in Tarifa. You will not regret it!

We loved our stay in this newly renovated hotel in the old part of Tarifa. Can't imagine a better hotel in Tarifa!
The room was really cosy and was very nicely decorated and clean. The bed was amazing and we had a good nights sleep!! The staff was also very helpful and professional.

Hopefully we'll be back to Tarifa and La Sacristia soon!

I really enjoyed our stay, the hotel is down a lovely little back street and has lots of character. The reception/dining area are tastefully decorated and we received a lovely welcome when we arrived. Our room overlooked the front of the hotel and had a lovely little balcony (not large enough to sit on) but nice to have. The room had a lovely antique bed and a small but adequate bathroom with lovely tiles.

We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on the restaurant. Our room was quiet with large shutters to block out any light so we both slept really well. There is a fan in the room also if it gets too warm.

Breakfast was a little bit on the slow side (getting coffee/tea) and there wasn't a great deal to choose from. It might be a good idea to expand the selection available slightly. The owner Serafin, is fabulous at what he does and made us feel really welcome at his establishment. He personally said goodbye to everyone checking out of the hotel on the morning we left. Lovely touch!!

I would recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay again when I am in Tarifa.

We stayed at La Sacristia following a recommendation from a friend. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted something special and a little different. Upon arrival, we were very warmly greeted by the owner Sandra who offered us a bottle of Cava as an anniversary treat. She showed us to our room which did not disappoint. A huge bed, beautifully furnished with a lovely balcony. The bathroom was very nicely finished, although it would have been nice to have some shower gel, shampoo etc. Having unpacked, we returned to reception where Sandra spent some time recommending the best places to eat and visit. we took her advice and visited a tapas bar which was fab! That evening the staff were incredibly helpful in booking us a table at a nearby restaurant. The only criticism I had was during the night. The floors and walls are clearly very thin and it was rather noisy at times. All in all, we had a fantastic time and will definitely be visiting again. I will highly recommend this hotel and would like to thank all the staff for a lovely stay.
