“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stopped off here while touring Andalucia. We only intended to stay one night, but soon
decided to stay until the end of our holiday. The house has been done up beautifully, and is extremely comfortable. There was a roaring log fire in the drawing room, where we would relax
with a glass of Tio Pepe,(the house belongs to the Gonzales Gordon family).
The service from Jose, Diego and Andy was superb.They made us feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. There were superb breakfasts, beautifully served, with delicious scrambled eggs, courtesy of Angela.
There is a fabulous walk through the vineyards and fields behind the house, with breathtaking views of the countryside. It also makes an excellent base for exploring Andalucia, with Seville,
Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada and, of course, Jerez all within an hour or two's drive.
This would also be a great place to come for a few days with family and friends. There are only 8 bedrooms, and they are all lovely. A very classy place to stay!

This is quite simply the best place we have ever stayed. My wife was unfortunately ill before we left for Spain and continued to suffer whilst away. The staff and owners daughter were so attentive to our needs ensuring everything possible to make her comfortable. The rooms, public areas and gardens are pristinely presented, the pool is a perfect location and temperature. The two south american butlers cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. If you are visiting the jerez area you must treat yourself to this experience. Thank you so much to all for this higlight.

This old landhouse was once a family home and now offers you lovely accommodation just 5 minutes away from Jerez centre. It is a beautifull small place to stay for celebrating your honeymoon. The rooms are beautifully decorated in pale earth tones to reflect the natural surroundings of the house. The rooms upstairs have steeply beamed ceilings and all have private bathrooms. Two butlers are helping you with everything you need. Our honeymoon is still in our mind.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are big and very luxe

The other reviews say it all. Whether you want to relax by the pool, with drinks brought to your sun-lounger by George or Martin (very cheerful and willing members of staff from Peru and Bolivia), or want to visit Jerez (don't miss the Gonzales Byass tour) or Cadiz, this is the perfect place to stay. A peaceful location, comfortable rooms, excellent service, - what more could one ask for!

Beautiful,small(9 rooms) extremely comfortable hotel just outside Jerez near GP circuit/Montecastillo golf resort.Superb,unobtrusive but efficient staff(1,2 or3 gentlemen,depending on number of guests) and the Lady owner popping in to greet and ensure a perfect stay.The rooms are large,airy,beautifully furnished(as is the whole house)with no TV's/radios to detract from the tranquility.The Air-con is switched on before bed and is really efficient and quiet.Pool and gardens are beautiful and peaceful.If free,the staff are happy to taxi you to restaurants at very reasonable rates and are all very kind and helpfull at all times.Breakfast is the only small thing I could constuctively criticise as the selection of fresh fruit was limited and a little dull and the orange juice was not squeezed freshly,but the coffee and cooked eggs/bacon were delicious.
Overall.a total joy,would unresevedly recommend it if tranquility and quality of service in a relaxing,old-world charm style ouyweighs modern hi-tech resort style hotels.

What a wonderful hotel this is - actually, more like a large house. We felt we were upgraded to our own elegantly decorated mansion. The house itself is huge, with very nice airy living room with wifi and nice comfy couches by an unused fireplace. There's also an honesty bar with all the necessary liquors. We spent every night there hanging out. The rooms are big with high ceilings. Downside was we visited in July when it was 38C outside and our AC couldn't keep up with the heat. Fortunately the house is located in what you could call the countryside, so we ended up opening the windows and there was a cool breeze. Bathrooms are very nice, with high end amenties and fixtures. Outside, there are lush gardens and a beautiful saltwater pool set in a charming garden with chairs to lay out in. The pool itself is very modern style and unexpectedly inviting.

The highlight of the stay was the two butlers, Hugo & Jorge, who took extremely good care of us. They were up and available at all hours and extremely attentive. They could read our needs before we even thought of them - olives and chips in the living room in the evenings, moving our hanging laundry to an open window for us, cold water by the bedside every night, excellent breakfast - fresh juices, eggs any style, bacon...

Definitely would recommend Casa Vina de Alcantara to all. Don't think that because it's not in the cities it's not worth the stay - it's less than 10min from Jerez and 45 min from Seville and Cadiz. It's a great hopping off point and completely relaxing place to get away from it all.

This is our second stay here and where we always plan to stay when we go to the MotoGP in Jerez. At just 2km from the circuit the location is perfect to walk to and from the race track (if you saw the traffic during race weekend you would know why this is a good idea). The seclusion is devine, the service discreet, breakfast delicious and the pool a dream. Our room was in the courtyard so it felt even more private.

We had a fantastic weekend, with both the racing and this little oasis. If you are in the area, you really should stay here. It is close to everything and yet you feel million miles away from the world once you go through the gates. I would happily live here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Concealed in a dense arboreal garden of palms, cypresses, myrtle, bay and lentiscs, lies a secret world, the world of Casa Alcantara, an exclusive accommodation only 10 minutes from Jerez airport, Cadiz, Andalucia. Here the family had their private shooting box; and on a bright crisp winter's day, they would retire from shooting partridge to indulge in the simple pleasure of a country fireside, glittering copas of cooled Tio Pepe, or amber oloroso, and a homely lunch of hot sopa de ajos, eggs from the farm hens, gently fried in olive oil, or perhaps some spinach or Swiss chard grown between the vineyards on the hills behind the house. ... more   less
