“Such caring hosts...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2008

The owners of Huertas las Terrazas - Amy and Al - are the kindest, most caring hosts you could wish to meet. From the moment that you walk through the arch of sweet scented jasmine into the paradise of their garden, all your needs are met. The bedrooms are elegant and comfortable, with views across to Morocco. Breakfast is served on a beautiful shaded terrace, cooler evenings can be spent with a glass of wine (from the honesty bar) by a log fire in the cosy sitting room. The terraced gardens just beg to be explored.

But it is the hosts themselves who are responsible for luring guests back time and again. Nothing is too much trouble. When a torrential downpour soaked us to the skin, Alistair took away our clothes to be tumble dried and Amy cooked us a meal which ranked with the best we have ever tasted.

Although we stayed for only 4 nights, we were reluctant to leave; not to leave Andalucia, though that is hard enough, but to leave this lovely young couple who had welcomed us into their home and made us feel like friends.

Stayed April 2008

We booked Huertas Las Terrazas because of the reviews on trip advisor. This was a great place to stay. Al was a kind and friendly host. It was a comfortable and relaxing stop between Sevilla and Rota. With limited things to do in the area, Huertas was an great place to enjoy the Spanish sun.

We stayed for two nights, and we had a great experience. The breakfast served on the porch was excellent. We were the only ones staying there at the time, so we had the pool to ourselves. The bed was comfortable and the room was inviting.

We stayed in the self catering 'Casita' for the first week of March with our 3 month old son and had a fantastic time

The Casita is stylishly done out in an amazing location high up on a terrace surrounded by cala lillies.

It is a few minutes walk up the hill behind the hotel and has amazing views across the valley down to the straits of gibraltar and across to Morocco.

There is a lovely patio to sit in the sun and savour the view.

The owners are really nice, laidback and very helpful.

It has a basic kitchen that has everything you need - a two ring hob+oven. There is also a BBQ you can use on the patio.

As part of a 9 day tour of southern Spain, we spent 3 days at Al and Amy's beautiful home from home. The setting is beautiful, well tendered gardens with a fantastic view of Northern Africa. The rooms are light and airy, the breakfast extremely tasty and very filling! Al and Amy treated us like long lost friends and made us feel very welcome. Please try Amy's massage, it is well worth the experience. We will certainly be going back. Ol and Nic

This is our second visit to Huerta Las Terrazas, and we were again delighted with the superb hospitality, stylish accommodation and great breakfasts. The garden and pool are surrounded by wonderful flowers and are very peaceful. If you feel energetic, take the track into the Los Arcornocales National Park and check out the butterflies and birds.

This is one of the most beaitful places I have stayed at. I look forward to my next trip back there. My husband and I stayed there half way through our 2week trip in October for 3nights. Our room was clean & cozy and with a view of Morocco from our window. We paid $100 euro's a night that included a generous breakfast. We felt right at home when we arrived. This was great place to relax and enjoy our vacation. The host's (Amy & Al) were more then willing to help us with any needs; from helping us find a restaurant, recommending sights,local beaches or shopping. It is approx 15min drive to local town of Tarifa (and rental car is a must to travel from town to town). Tarifa is a small town feel inwhich people are friendly and you feel comfortable. It is here we did a day trip to Taniger, Morocco a 45min ferry ride.
