“Not a 3* hotel as advertised.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

On the plus side the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel were excellent allbeit there was a dead cockroach in our bathroom on arrival. Now for the downside... Everything was done on the cheap right down to the loo roll and lack of bin liner in our one waste paper basket. Food was mostly out of tins or from the freezer. Tinned mushrooms, tinned mussels, tinned asparagus, tinned rice pudding... Not much choice on the food and none of it was hot even if you were first to the buffet. Hardly any vegetables. Fruit was either over ripe or not ripe at all. Towels were threadbare. No atmosphere in the bar/reception areas. We asked for 2 requests on booking, a balcony and a late check out, we got neither. Our room was situated on the ground floor which had a walkway outside the door so we couldn't sit out at night, we couldn't anyway though as we had no patio furniture. Hotel is situated right on the beach and the night life around and about is good. Would we stay here again? No.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony overlooking the pool.

Once again i will write an honest review of our 1 weeks holiday experience at the Hotel Tarik. Firstly the location, the location is right on the sea front, perfect as its right in the middle of the vast restaraunts, cafes, and pubs etc right opposite fantastic beach's.. The room we stayed in was very clean and the towells appeared to be changed every other day, however it took 3 days for this to happen ( towells not changed for the first 3 days ) After this towells changed every day. The staff here are excellent and very freindly and nothing is a problem from the receptionost to the waiters. TOP TIP....If you decide to stay here ensure you pay a little extra for a balcony, our room was overlloking the binns and the residential area and had no balcony very noisey and not being able rto sit and relax cathches up with you. The food i thought was not to bad bearing in mind what we paid, the breakfast was minimal but enough with bacon, eggs, cerials, fruit , youghurt, tea coffee and juices, the evening meals are again in my opinion suitable with what i thought to be quite a varied small range( this is a very small hotel). Th ehotel prices for alcoholic and soft drinks about the same price as in the resort. The area for sunbathing was always clean and tidy, but beware of the sunbeds which are not comfortable at all and appeared to be yeras old. This hotel is marked up as 3 star, i would put this as a 2 star myself bvut like i have already said you get what you paid for and i thought it was pretty good value for what we paid, would i return back, yes but this time with a balcony as theses rooms are at the sides of the hotel and therfore you will not get the amount of noise we sustained every night especially the bin men who arrive at all hours. Overall i thought this was very good for what we paid and this reflected in our experince.

Room Tip: Ensure you pay a little more for a balcony as the rooms without balcony's are at the back overlo...

Peaceful, relaxed, friendly and clean . If I had any issue it would be with the food. Having stayed in various hotels in the Costa Del Sol, 3 star and 4 star, the food was certainly no worse than any other, however, as with the other hotels the meals mostly cater for European guests, rather the guests from the UK. A slightly more varied selection wouldn't go amiss. Apart frim this minor issue, excellent little hotel.

We booked this Hotel through Travel Republic & felt we had an excellent deal with half board, staying for 8 nights from 1st September. The hotel & rooms are quiet, kept very clean with excellent maid service. Breakfast & dinner is buffet style with tasty well prepared food that we were happy with, chicken, fish, salad etc. This is a small hotel so don't expect expect the variety you find in large hotels & I'm glad we ignored previous reviews on the food or we would have missed this little charm. A lot of Spanish stay here so there is a more traditional taste with the food. The pool & garden area is nice & well kept & the beach is right outside. Supermarket bars & restaurants next door & the main centre about 20 minues walk away. The hotel has a nice bar & seating area at the front, brilliant for people watching. We've never been to the Costa del sol before & were quite impressed with the cleanliness, markets & shopping. The beaches are nice although the sea & waves can get quite rough but we did enjoy watching the boogie boarders & body surfers! I would return to this Hotel in the future & I would recommend it to my friends. I would not recommend it if you are a fussy eater that likes extensive dishes to choose from, you need to choose a larger hotel. We booked shuttle bus transfers with Travel Republic & were actually picked up in large air conditioned cars to & from which was unexpected & so fast. We flew with BMI Baby, a first for us & quite good, on time etc. Overall a most enjoyable holiday, a pity we had to come home!

I just spent a nice week of holiday to Tarik Hotel. I have choose it based on Trip Advisor comments and it was a good choice.
The rooms are good size, clean, same the bathroom, the staff is very plesant and helpful. The area is silent with lot of restaurants in neighborhood and shops.
The very nice beach it's across the street.
The restaurant is clean and even if not too varied foods, are well done.

excellent location and pleasant staff, but the food in this hotel is by far the worst we have encountered in the last 30 years.we paid for half board and ate out most nights after seeing the dismal menu. don't ruin your holiday eating in the hotel on half board basis.

Room Tip: pay for balcony, etc, otherwise you'll end up at the rear of the hotel (noisy)

Stayed at the Tarik for 2 nights at the end of a holiday travelling the Costa del Sol after seeing and liking the look of it on a previous visit. Location is excellent - don't miss the chiringuito opposite - Cococabana and great walks on the promenade either way. Rooms are a good size and include free air con, shower was the best we encountered all holiday, good variety and plenty of choice at breakfast, nice public areas & staff friendly and helpful. My only comment is the rooms with terrace (which you pay extra for), although a good size with table & chairs, have no view if you are seated as the fronts are constructed of brick.
