After parking by the petrol station, the fig tree and the mimosa, after the beautiful entrance hall - we were told our rooms were on the other side of the very busy road. With all our luggage (cannot leave it in a car next to a petrol station!) down the steps we went, in the tunnel, up the steps, up more steps to what looked like the annex bungalows to the hotel. There is also a parking on that side of the road - and when we arrived with our luggage, in that parking, there was a white van, with caged bulldogs. The rooms (number 300+) were nice and so were the bathrooms. The garden was full of the traffic noise. There was nowhere to go to eat (unless one takes the car and drives the 10kms to Tarifa) but to climb down the stairs, through the tunnel, and up the stairs, to get to the restaurant. The waitress proposed "red or white wine". No wine list was offered, even after we insisted. We opted for beer, mineral water and an orange juice. Then after some time, a wine list with a few items pointed at, was not so much provided, as shown at arm length by the waitress. Time passes. "There is no orange juice!". The beer was good. The spaguetti ordered by our vegetarian friend was, a huge white mass, with no parmesan offered with it, although the menu proclaimed: "parmesan spaguetti". It costs €8? €9? It was not al dente, it was in a retro cheese sauce. The snitzel was a bit hard, accompanied by big fried potatoes, boiled in oil, and carefully avoiding any crispiness. I made a last ditch attempt at politeness and puddings. The waiter recited, no one understood what the fancy names ment, in Spanish or in English. No list, so no price! Across the road, on our way to our rooms, some doggies were now on parade. People were perusing? Not one, but two van loads? WHAT WAS GOING ON???! Was that a bulldog doing a poo in a corner of the lawn? Nice room though.
Consider on which side your room might be.
