Fantastic attention to detail - beautiful, fully kitted out rooms with everything you could possibly wish for, stunning grounds with different areas to relax, swim, chat or enjoy an evening meal with friends. The pool was amazing too and beautiful at night. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us. Always smiling and happy to see us. They... More

We stayed at Hotel Monasterio in April and had a fantastic time. It is such a stunning, peaceful hotel with beautiful grounds and a large outdoor pool which we used every day. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you, the evening meal in the restaurant was superb. You might want to hire a car when visiting... More

Hotel Monasterio - San Martin del Tesorilo is a gem, set in the beautiful countryside of Cadiz, just a short drive from the AP7 and easy access to Gibraltar and Sotogrande. Under new management, with a team of very helpful, charming and hard-working staff, Hotel Monasterio is a gem not to be missed. My partner and I stayed from Sunday... More

Located in fabulous and peaceful surroundings, The Hotel Monasterio's new management have started to make their impression upon this beautiful and serene location, away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life. The pool is a highlighting feature, deep enough to swim properly in and surrounded by luxurious furniture for lazing away the day upon. We stayed from the Sunday... More

Do not be fooled by the gorgeous look of this "hotel" , I use this term loosely as it is barely a barn with beds.

If you are looking for total relaxation in a remote location then this is the place for you! Set in the hills of San Martin, just 30 minutes transfer from Gibraltar airport, this converted monastery enables you to completely switch off from the outside world. There is no mobile phone signal and ok the wifi isn't super-fast broadband, but as... More

We purchased a CoolDeal offer for two nights half board in June as a little break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's only 45 mins from where we live, but it was so tranquil it felt worlds away. The hotel functions mainly as wedding venue and, as we went mid week, was wonderfully quiet. In fact, we were the only... More

Stunning hotel and grounds with immaculate and well appointed rooms. We went early Sunday morning to make the most of the day to relax around the pool. Checkin and reception staff were very helpful. Service at the pool was attentive but may have found it useful to have a drinks menu along with a price list. We opted for the... More

Beautiful location and the rooms spacious. Pool and surroundings excellent. Totally let down by poor service, (waiting for drinks service), and bar not stocked with common drinks such as Dark Rum. House wine had run out, and at least 4 items listed on menu were not available. No detailed bill on departure, probably a guess.
