“Fantastic - beautiful gardens and delicious breakfast - nice service - a bit old”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2011

The hotel is a bit old, but is very well maintained: the gardens, the pool, etc.

We had the suite 404, the biggest one. It's like a big apartment, with walk-in closet, beautiful room and nice seating area with a big table for 8 people. The most beautiful part is the private (incredibly big) terrace. It must be 100 square meters.
How beautiful to enjoy a glass of wine or sangria in the evening on this immense terrace. There is even a shower on it...
The only problem: the bathroom smells badly! They definitely have to clean the hydraulic lines.. The fridge didn't not work well, was not cold enough.

The breakfast is incredibly good: they have a very big choice of food, fresh fruits and of course the jamon serrano. Don't miss the breakfast there. Nothing better to start a morning!

2 computers with internet for free are available for the customers at the entrance.

At the reception they are very friendly: for example when you arrive the say “Bienvenido/Welcome”. It sounds common and stupid today, but this means that they are professional! How many hotels do they still say Welcome when you arrive?

They have a parking, too.

Location: in the centre of Jerez de la frontera. You don't need a car to move in the city.

Stayed here with my wife for a couple of days for a culture break( the hotel having been prebooked via Hotel.com at a cost of £94 for two nights) from the Costa Del Sol and we were not dissappointed.I found the hotel easy to locate but I was using Satnav and on arrival we were mightily impressed.The hotel is a former Bodega ( if you stroll down the street to the Sandeman Bodega you will notice the similarities) the gardens are very pretty and well tended and the whole hotel just shouts quality.The rooms themselves are big with large comfy bed and large bathroom replete with wet room and bath together with double sink.Our executive room had a minibar but at 2 euros a small beer I would recommend stocking it with wine and beer from the nearby supermarket.The room also has a tv which only has one english speaking channel but then again I am sure most holiday to escape such things as english tv.The hotel was also equipped with a swimming pool again in a lovely garden and it was available to use.One thing to note is that parking in the hotel grounds costs an additional 12 euros a day but when we stayed there was ample parking in the adjoining street but by this time I had committed myself to hotel parking.

Whilst staying in Jerez I would recommend visiting any of the many of the branded bodegas, we went to the nearby Sandeman and were rewarded with an interesting tour at a cost of 6 euros each but this did include three decent sized glasses of excellant sherry acompanied with crisps and olives.Also worth seeing is the Alcazar which for three euros each was a bargain and the visit also offers panoramic vews of the city but there is ample pleasure to be gained just strolling the typically Spanish streets taking in the beautiful architecture and indulging in local wines and pastries from the innumerable local bars and patisseries.One note of caution avoid the La Ina restaurant just off Plaza Arenal near the tourist information office unless you have a liking for small portionsof luke warm/cold food better to go to one of the restaurants slightly further from the centre.

Whilst staying in Jerez we also travelled to Cadiz using a taxi to get to the station at a cost of 6 euros and then taking a 45 minute trip on a clean punctual train to Cadiz alighting not far from the cultural centre of the city. For a price of less than 10 euros this was a lot less trouble than driving there with all the accompanying problems of finding the centre and a parking space.

For anyone like me who wearies of just lying in the sun in the Costa Del Sol for two weeks I would strongly recommend this break.I drove there via Ronda going and although a pleasant drive it was longer and more difficult than comming back driving along the N340 towards Algeciras then getting on to the toll road E15 to get off at Calahonda.This journey takes in wonderful lake views in an area I had never heard of and took only just over two hours to complete and that was driving a Kia Picanto!

Arrived the hotel mid morning, got a friendly welcome. Some of the past comments said the staff were not very helpful/friendly. This was not the case, the reception staff could not do enough to help.

The room, was large and spacious, and had a very large bathroom, with a walk in shower which worked.

The ground were well maintained and tidy. The swimming pool was not heated but, was very welcoming to cool of in after, wandering the streets.

This was my sixth visit to Jerez and although I've stayed at other lovely hotels in Jerez, this is by the far the best. We stayed in one of the beautiful suites on the fourth floor and had a very relaxing time. I disagree with an earlier posting that there was a lack of personal service - the staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. They recommended fabulous restaurants and bodega visits. I would strongly recommend this hotel for future visits.

The Prestige Palmera Plaza is a wonderfully laid out hotel in set in lovely grounds of what was previously an old bodega. It is relatively new and modern, but has a classical feel to it. The modern art works on the wide corridor walls and around the hotel are quite contemporary, and the grounds of the hotel and pool area attractive and boutique like. Its situation is just on the edge of Jerez city centre (only 5-10 mins walk) which is allows it a peaceful quietness, particularly at night. The rooms are large and very comfortable, with french window looking out over the garden. The staff were extremely helpful, and even let me print off my boarding passes from their computer. We had only one small problem in that there were a few ants running around one of our bedside tables which was a bit off-putting and although we reported it, the problem was not really resolved during our stay, which to be fair, was fairly short at only two nights - these things can take a bit longer!. The hotel has 5 stars, and it could be argued that it deserves to be there or there abouts, but the price to stay there was definitely not as much as other 5 star hotels which was a real bonus. If I was the hotel manager though, I would ban the hanging out of towels over the small balcany railings, it detracts from a wonderful facade, and given that the hotel supply pool towels, there is no real need to use your own.

The rooms are huge and very comfortable but the ones with terraces are not worth paying extra for as the terrace is a small area surrounded by a high hedge so you can't actually see anything. We booked direct with the hotel and got a very good deal, including breakfast,and a free minibar for the duration of the stay. Where this hotel fails is a complete lack of personality and service. There is nowhere to get a drink or a cup of tea at any time other than breakfast. They say they have a poolside bar but it was never open. It was 42 degrees outside and you could not even get a glass of water! The swimming pool did help to cope with the heat, and was much appreciated.
