“Atlantico on the Atlantic shore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We visited the hotel on the beginning of July. The weather was a bit windy at the beginning but after 2 days become perfect!

The Hotel is located in the locality of Atlanterra, 3 km from Zahara town center. It has access to the beach (400m walk) but does not provide sun umbrellas nor sunbeds. The only thing you get are towels, which you can borrow at the reception and then return them after coming back.

The beach is ok, a little on the rocky side. The best beaches are in Bolonia, 20 minutes driving from the hotel in the direction of Tarifa. Definitely worth going there!!

Here is the tip for the hotel management:

You have only 25 rooms - surely it wouldn't be very big investment if you equipped each room with one sun umbrella for the guests? A wind screen would be also nice!

The room itself was nice, although not very big ( certainly not big for the price paid! 150e per night :) ) Being only one year old, the room was very clean with nice shower. Our room was also equipped with terrace and one (!) sunbed. Strange, as for a double room and plenty of room on the terrace...Also, there are no rooms with terraces from the ocean side, only with mountains view.

If you want to watch the TV, hotel offers wide chose of digital channels, including Canal+ with good movies.

Parking, is sadly a difficult. You will have to fight for a space on the street every evening. That is, if you don't want to pay hefty 10 Eur a day for a underground hotel parking (very small and difficult to maneuver in with longer cars).

Food was quite good, although being a culinary experimenters we chose to eat out every night. We only bough breakfast. It was tasty but ... we got bored on the third day as no changes were done to the menu throughout our entire stay (7 night!). Management: please change the selection at lease every third day!

The reception is excellent! Big thanks go to GLORIA! You were the nicest service we had during our entire stay in Spain! (3 weeks). Ask her for good restaurants in Zahara and you are in for 30 minutes long lecture with detailed description of each menu and money value! :)

The staff speaks a little English, especially the waitress who was serving us every morning - best regards from Ireland! :)

Room Tip: If you don't mind to pay 15 Eur extra per night, choose a suit! Much bigger and more comfortable...

Beautiful hotel. Very clean. Short distance from beach (5 mins walk or so). Staff friendly. Not close to bars etc if that's what you are after. We were there with 2 small kids so it suited us. The pool is tiny so it's really for the beach.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This hotel has a vacant feel to it as it has literally just opened. The room was lovely but considering we informed them that we were on our honeymoon, and the hotel was practically empty, it was disappointing that they didn't put us in a better room (we were facing the road). The finish of the hotel is top notch (shower, bathroom, fittings) but there was no pool, bar or other facilities.

Great design but not blown away. I probably would return though.
