“A little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Spent a long weekend here in July for a stag party. Rooms were a little cramped but very clean and reasonably priced. Pool area quiet and relaxed during the day as many residents will be kitesurfing. Large bar area with raised cushioned seating. Live music and Djs in the evning which was a perfect warm up for an evening in the town (and what a great town it was). Brilliant town for a night out with friendly people. Warning - hotel is about 6k out of town and is too far to walk. Taxis are not easy to get do worth booking in advance.

100% Fun advertizes beach access and that it is in front of the beach. I thought the beach was right there at the hotel. Was very disappointed to see that it is a 8 -10 minute walk to the ocean. You have to cross the major highway and then go through a different hotel to get to the beach. For the money, the hotel should be along the beach. Also, was disappointed that there was NO telephone in the room.

Be sure they charge your credit card in EUROS as they by default charge it in dollars (or native currency) at a higher exchange rate.

Swimming pool was nice. Breakfast was above average.

I had to stay an extra day in Tarifa and found a hotel in Tarifa for 1/3 the price and enjoyed it more.

Although right beside the main Cadiz-Tarifa road (quiet and peaceful despite the proximity) it was a little difficult to spot the sign at first, but well worth a few nights here. 100% fun is an oasis, the rooms facing the pool are clean, comfortable, light and have stacks of room for luggage. The restaurant food is first-class, not expensive, the steak superb, breakfast selection good. The chill-out garden area is wonderful for pre-dinner cocktails. Within easy each by car of Tarifa and the roman site of Bolonia and a short walk across the road to a fabulous beach where surfers/boarders/kiters hang out.

  • Liked — compact,clean, relaxing

Stayed at the 100% Fun for 5 days as part of a whale and dolphin watching holiday with "Out of the Blue" (see [--] - Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society)...

When I heard the name I thought I was in for some serious whackiness, but in fact the 100% Fun turned out to be a great place to stay. It's small and relatively intimate with some good basic rooms which are well maintained. Breakfasts were excellent and the atmosphere in the restaurant and "chill-out bar" was great if busy.

Don't miss the mojitos!

We stayed at the hotel with my teenage son, who wants to go back this year! The rooms were fairly basic, but clean (the maid came in every day), comfortable and fantastic value for a family of four. The breakfast, which is included in the price, is a wonderful buffet of fresh fruit, croissants, cheeses, cereals and fresh coffee etc. It is served in the restaurant which is a lovely open plan space and doubles as a mexican restaurant in the evening (again the food is faultless).

The bungalows are dotted around very attractive landscaped gardens, in the centre of which is a lovely pool and plenty of sunbeds. There is a trendy shop on site selling anything from flip-flops to african furniture - very handy if you've forgotton your bikini.

The road outside the hotel is the main road into tarifa, which is fairly busy but is safe to cross and not terribly noisy. Directly across the road are beach bars offering mouth watering meals and drinks. The hotel is a about a mile from Tarifa itself so i would recommend a car for families with young children.

We have been to Tarifa a few times, and stayed in different places, but i would not hesitate in recommending this hotel for its sheer value for money, great food and pool. Might even see you there this year!

Stayed May 2005

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2006

Coming from a plush hotel in Malaga, we were hoping for something a little more upscale from 100% Fun, but still enjoyed our stay.

The grounds are very lush and the restaurant and bar are great. Defintely get the pina coloda. One of the best I had ever. The room is pretty minimalist though. The 4 person room is basically one large room with concrete floor, no a/c, not very large room, no place to put your luggage. Of course with the hotel across the sttreet from the beach, there is always a strong breeze to keep you cool.

The hang out bar on the weekends is very relaxing to sit and indulge on one of their many excellent drinks. The pina coloda and mojito were very good.

The staff is friendly enough.

Look at the Hurricane Hotel first.

The hotel was really wonderful. The food, cocktails and staff were all very nice. The hotel is set in some lovely gardens with the rooms being individual mini villas.

If you want a relaxing holiday with good company this hotel is a must. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a chilled holiday experience.

It is a 2 minute drive to a beautiful beach with beautiful people and about 10 mins from the town by taxi.
