A really lovely hotel, although it’s not the cheapest in the area, but we felt it was worth the extra for the convenience of being close to the stables and Club Mistral which are on site. We’d booked riding for 4 days.
The pool was a tad chilly when we went (May). The gardens are beautiful and although it’s really windy on the beach the pool area is a sheltered sun-trap.
Good food, plenty of choice for breakfast & dinner and the beach bar for lunch was our favourite.
The room was fine although personally a little noisy as our room was at the front which is close to the road, even though it’s approx. 100m back from the road.
Overall a really nice atmosphere and will definitely go back especially as the riding was superb. The horses were fantastic and really well cared for.
The hotel is situated on the main road, just a few miles outside Tarifa so you’d need a car. If you’ve booked this hotel, I’d recommend checking Google street view which will help you when trying to find it, although there is a large sign on the road.
