You will like at home! Bring a book with you, there isn't great spot for reading. Breakfast is great, feels like brunch. Service is superb and details are all over. Quiet spot, perfect for a romantic getaway. They offer you golf carts to enjoy Jose Ignacio and you will get the best tips!

Posada del Faro is a charming hotel close to the beach and the center of town. The service is excellent, the rooms comfortable, and I would happily stay there again. I have some suggestions, however, for the management/owners. COFFEE! Please get a commercial-grade Nespresso machine and allow guests to help themselves the way they help themselves to cocktails; the American-style...

Beautiful Hotel with spectacular ocean views just footsteps from the beach. Very relaxed athmosphere, we liked the breakfast on our terrace. Bikes are available for use. The only negative Thing was that there were only small bottels of water on our Arrival and those were quite expensive - everybody just buys big water bottles at the gas Station... very clean!!

15 rooms, a garden with a pool and next to the beach, this peaceful paradise is something to behold . Everything that you need for a relaxing holiday is here, although breakfast is the only meal provided from the kitchen, snacks are available at all times and there are many restaurants close by. The staff are warm and welcoming and...

The hotel was very quiet when we were there, to be honest too quiet, the wet bar not in use and no towels for the loungers after the first day. Actually some sun umbrellas would've been helpful. We only discovered a member of staff who spoke English after 2 days so before then, it was difficult to ask for any...

When you arrive at the hotel you may well wonder why you've paid so much to come here. Give it 24 hours and you'll know. Okay, it need a bit of TLC but it is the most magical place to spend some time. We were there for 8 nights over New Year and I honestly don't think there's anywhere I...

It is a very nice place in general and the staff is very friendly. However during the pre-season, early December in our case, there is a lot of maintenance happening in preparation for the start of summer and most restaurants are not open yet. Out of 12 or so restaurants in the area only 2 were open, one for lunch...

“The rooms on the right side of the hotel (Private) are the most spacious ones. Best rooms are on the top floor of this section. On the left side of the hotel there are excellent rooms as well. If you want to have straight view over the ocean, ask for rooms on the second floor facing the swimming pool. The Hotel staff are wonderful and will accommodate your request.”
