“great beach location but a 4 star rating is ludicrous”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2009

This hotel is wonderfully situated right on a beautiful beach. Curiously it has 2 hotels on site, one 2 star and one 4 star. I stayed in the 4 star where my single room measured less than 90 sq.ft. (approx * sq m). Almost all the floor space was taken up by the cheap shoddy furniture. By cheap and shoddy I mean, for example, a large free standing wardrobe and 2 tables all made from compressed wood shavings covered with a veneer that was peeling off in many places.
The bathroom was similarly claustrophobic with the cheapest of toiletries.
I was interested to see that a similar size room across the corridoor was used as a linen press.
The breakfast was very good.
I did not find it a welcoming establishment.
In fairness I must say that members of my family stayed earlier in the summer in a junior suite and had no complaints. Perhaps it is the solo traveler who is getting very poor value.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

This pristine hotel is beautifully located on a very uncrowded part of the beach (even though we were there in the height of the season), a little outside of Zahara de Los Atunes. We paid €169 a night for a room "with sitting room". Actually, the sitting room is really just an extension of the bedroom - so I imagine the standard rooms may be on the small side. We had a balcony looking out to the sea. The view is not uninterrupted, as the original two star hotel is below - but you still get beautiful sea views, with Cape Trafalgar to one side and Africa to the other, and the sound of the foaming Atlantic surf. Even though the hotel was full, one didn't have that impression - very calm and quiet. Service was charming and there was an excellent buffet breakfast. Dinner is in a separate building, the Antonio Restaurant - stunning views of sunset over Cape Trafalgar. Food good if not enormously exciting. Strongly recommend Gaspars in town for top quality food and service. Don't bring the car - parking is problematic and it's only a short walk.
