This a great pick for Vejer de la Frontera. Hotel La Casa del Califa is a simple yet extremely pleasant hotel. I highly recommend it. The hotel is ideally located right on Plaza de España - the super nice and lively square at the heart of Vejer. The hotel is full of charms: not a lot of thrills but a... More

We can't imagine a more romantic setting in this special town than the califa. Our superior room overlooking vejer was like a magic carpet trip to nearby Morocco. There are interesting nooks and crannies to explore everywhere in the hotel, all decorated with impeccable taste.

Views, food, service and steps, loads of all of them. Well worth a visit and well worth finding your way in and around the hotel as every room, bar and restaurant are on different levels. All this and a fabulous wine cellar (see photo). The garden restaurant serves mainly food from across the nearby continent which you can see clearly... More

The hotel is located in 10 buildings that have been joined, and therefore contain a lot of stairs and unexpected turns. But if you can stand this you get a lot of atmosphere from way back, and a first class attentive service from all staff. We occupied the largest suite (Africa) under the roof which was excellent, except for substandard... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Casa del Califa is Vejer's No.1 hotel, which since its founding in 2001 has become a favourite place to stay in Andalucia for travellers and Spaniards alike. The Califa's origins date back to the 10th century, with the building sitting in the heart of Vejer in the palm filled Plaza de España. The historic hotel offers views across the marshes, forests, and hills of the Atlantic coast. The Califa offers a wide range of rooms, from simple doubles to luxurious suites, catering to guests of all tastes. The rooms are spread out among interwoven buildings linked by staircases and courtyards, with a characteristic Andalucian patio garden at its heart. The Califa is the ideal place from which to explore the Atlantic Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) & the 'Sierras' of Cádiz. The cultural and outdoor attractions are endless: walking, bike riding, trekking, birdwatching, painting, visiting Cape Trafalgar, seafaring Cádiz, long empty beaches, quiet palm-filled plazas, the sherry bodegas of Jerez, kitesurfing, horseback riding through pine forests, a day trip to Tangiers, sunset drinks on the hotel terrace, magical white towns...all this and more is a daily experience at La Casa del Califa. In our small and intimate hotel, you will find just the right balance of comfort and decor combined with wonderful views, tranquility, and of course excellent service. Convenient private covered parking is located just 80m. from the hotel. ... more   less
