La Residencia was a residence for non commissioned officers, built by the Spanish military in the 1940s, and renovated into a vacation suites sublet in 2013. It is right in the corner of the old city, adjacent to the old city walls. Our apartment was on the ground floor and had a stunning view of Africa, 14 km away. This... More

Just the most gorgeous place to stay with incredible sea views across to Africa. Quiet, relaxing and friendly. The pool is beautiful and warm and the owners are great. Only 5 minutes walk to the centre of the old town of Tarifa. I cannot wait to return here and to Tarifa. Such a gem of a place.

We have been staying here for the last week and love it. Great location (close to the town yet far enough away from bars etc. to be quiet), fabulous view of the straight and clean, comfortable accommodation. The owners have thought of everything you could need for a short stay. Comprehensive cooking utensils together with washing up equipment - so... More

Fantastic short break. Could not have picked any better place to stay ( I do not think better exists in Tarifa) location was perfect, did not even look at the car the entire stay, heaven. The apartment was also perfect, spotlessly clean ( and I am a total germophobe ), nicely furnished, great bed, good quality pillows and linens. Nicely... More

We had a wonderful time at La Residencia Tarifa. The apartment was lovely with a stunning view, very spacious and well appointed. It is expensive but you get what you pay for and it was worth the money. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. Elke, the manager was fantastic. She was very welcoming and gave us...
