El Tio Kiko is a sure bet if you are planning to stay in Cabo de Gata. Besides, Agua Amarga, the small town in which the hotel is, is the one with more charm in the area. Charm you find a lot it the hotel itself too. The place is nice and very well kept, even it is been in...

We booked a room with garden view but when we got there, we had an upgrade because in low season lot of rooms were available. The room was great, very spacious and clean, with Iacuzzi inside and a private sea-view balcony. Breakfast was excellent (eggs and bacon, cold cuts, cheese, cakes, pastries, yogurt, fresh fruits, etc). The staff was efficient...

Traveling through Spain we came to the lovely small village Agua Amarga and here we found the hotel El Tio Kiko, on the hill at the border of the village in panoramic position, 5 minutes walk away from it. The room, or should I better say the suite, was very large, very clean with a large terrace with pool-view, partial...

Stayed here in July 2013 whilst visiting Agua Amarga for my sister's wedding. Shared a really lovely room with my daughter, overlooking sea and pool. Amazing breakfast, unfortunately being gluten-free couldn't eat all of it. Lovely pool and pool area.

Couldn't fault it. Lovely big rooms with sea views (top floor/superior), spotlessly clean with comfy superking beds, balcony and really nice bathroom. Breakfast was great - didn't want for anything and made a refreshing change from a generic buffet. Good service - it was quiet when we went so did have to find someone occasionally to get a beer, but...

Room as depicted on website - simple and elegant furnishings. As noted by other reviewers many of the rooms do not have a sea view and the wifi only works from common areas which seems a bit mean in this class of hotel, as does only receiving one tiny bottle of water over two nights. Our room had sea glimpses...

This hotel had excellent customer service, excellent breakfast, and clean and very comfortable rooms. It was one of my favorite hotels in all of Spain. I especially loved the balcony and large bathtub.

Not much to say about this hotel beyond "stay here"! The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, the hotel and rooms are of a very high standard, and the whole experience of staying here was incredibly relaxed and easy. We had a room that was not designated as 'sea view', but we could certainly see the sea from our balcony....

Spent 4 days at El Tio Kiko and it is certainly a comfortable hotel equipped to a high standard. We liked the location, the beach, the pool and the spa bath. We weren’t happy with the sea view which should be described as partial and distant. It also appeared to be understaffed. To have aspirations of being a 5 star...
