Hotel Boutique Alcoba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 5, 2012

What a lovely hotel, calm, clean, comfortable; what lovely hosts. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for the Alcoba team. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left three days later, we felt like honoured guests. This beautiful place is a tribute to modern design, but with form never leading away from function.

Room Tip: I wouldn't worry about it.

Just cannot express in words the way I feel about this little HOME AWAY FROM HOME ..........Just returned from our second visit within the space of a few months ,this time accompanied by our daughter and her friend,who are also fans now..........
This little 10 roomed(very unfairly named Hostal)is equal if not superior to many so called boutique hotels where we have stayed worldwide............fabulously decorated ,extreemly comfortable,so very clean,and with owners who are always on hand and seem to know exactly when they are needed for assitance but always take a step back when they feel thier guests want to 'go it alone'!!!!!!!
Amazing in the summer with thier 'chill' area and plunge pool,and very cosy and welcoming in the cooler months....
somethng to take into consideration is that the hotel is in a narrow back street and although this adds to the 'quiet 'factor,this could be considered by some as a problem where parking is concerned as you cannot park your car outside and leave it there,but there are arrangements for parking nearby for a small cost.
San lucar a fantastic area for 'foodies' like us with some terrific restaurantes and bars a mere stones throw away from your accomodation......one great choice for tapas BALBINO in the plaza of the town (you will not believe the variety of tapas on offer ,especially indicated for sea food lovers)and also for a slightly more formal meal CASA BIGOTE in the Bajo de guia area ,(around the beach).Again sea food and locally freshly caught fish..............all absolutely DELICIOUS .............
There are many towns within a short car journey which are well worth checking out,Chipiona,Jerez,puerto de santa maria,etc etc etc
Manuel (owner of our second home!!!!!!) will be only to please to assist if you need any help at all on where to go or what to do during your stay,and he and his family and staff will make your stay truly one to remember.............................
Thank you so much Manuel ,and here to the next visit !!!!!!!!!!!

We decided to book the Hostal Alcoba following the glowing reviews and could not have been happier with our decision. The word 'hostal' is slightly misleading in the sense that the place has more the feel of a small boutique hotel. Built over a year ago, it feels brand new and the rooms are bright and airy. Manolo and his wife have renovated this traditional house beautifully, with quality fittings and materials. The central patio/garden with the small pool was also a pleasant surprise and a great place to cool down and read in the afternoon.

Manolo was the perfect host - helpful and very friendly, but never intrusive. He gave us great recommendations to eat and drink and also helped us book visits to some of the fabulous sherry bodegas in the area. The continental breakfast buffet was delicious and the hostal location could not be better, 5 to 10 minutes walk from all attractions in Sanlúcar. In terms of the hospitality and 'feel-good' factor, this is a special place in the league of some of the best hotels in the world. Yes, it is a hostal (2 star), but truly first-class and incredible value for money.

We stayed for 1 night and wish we could have spent more time there. Made very welcome as soon as we arrived. Lovely room, beautiful garden, nice pool and interesting furniture and artworks everywhere. Lovely and such good value too. Breakfast was fantastic with great coffee and a good choice of food. Want to go back. Already been recommending it to friends.

We stayed only for three nights and enjoyed it absolutely. The design of the hotel and rooms is brillant. Miguel and Manolo made our stay a pleasure. Buffet breakfast offers very good quality and great variety. The pool is small but more than enough to get a fresh swim.

I am certain that I will return to this wonderful Hotel on my next trip to Sanlucar. The Hostal is actually a charm-full boutique hotel were even the smallest detail will surprise you. The design furniture has been carefully selected for the highest comfort. The small swimming pool is beautiful. Manuel spent a lot of time giving us excellent advises for sightseeing in Sanlucar and the Jerez region. Thank you very much for your warm hospitality.

Room Tip: All rooms are very quite

My partner and I have just returned form a two night stay at the Hostal Alcoba in Sanlucar and it is really excellent place to stay. Central - so you can walk to the bars and bodegas and a really comfortable and stylish place to have as a base. The welcome was excellent, warm and genuine and the host attentive to every need. The rooms are spacious with great showers and full size really comfortable beds - quiet too! It reminded me of a boutique hotel in London or Paris but at a fraction of the price. A lovely buffet breakfast with fresh ingredients and excellent internet access to plan your day out. All in all a great place to stay - highly recommended.
