After a great stay in Granada, we went to Tarifa for surfing.
We were in a very nice hotels in Granada but we wanted to have something more "roots" to be in the surfing vibe.

I was a bit disappointed on the arrival since the hotel is just adjacent to the main road to Tarifa (5 min from there) so I expected the room to be noisy.
In the end, it was not that noisy and our room was just above the bull-fighting training ring. Every night we could see some young toreros training there and it was quite fun.

We had a good stay there and the room was nice and not too warm (we did not use aircon).

Very comfy bed, very clean, good pool (no shallow end for kids) in lovely gardens. Breakfast included but that's the basic breakfast if toast, coffee, juice only; extras like eggs are chargeable. Bit close to main road but no noise. Ask for room 127, corner balcony, great view across to Morocco.

We really liked the outdoor area with the pool, though it was quite breezy when we were there. The hotel is really like a small resort and feels very comfortable. We bought some cheese and wine and enjoyed our balcony terrace in the evening. The staff was very helpful as well. The location was fine for us, but if you did not have a car you would probably want to be in town as it is a distance out. Tarifa is known for windsurfing and was very windy when we visited, so windy that the ferries to Tangiers were cancelled for 3 days on a row. However, you are not too far from Algeceras where there are huge ferries that can still run in the rough water, and it wasn't too rocky, though it was behind schedule because of the winds I think. Finding out we could still go on this other ferry saved us from missing a fabulous day in Morocco. This ferry from Algeceras does not come directly into Tangiers, but we were able to pay a bit more and have our prearranged guide in Morocco meet us at this ferry outside of Tangiers instead.

Nice hotel. Clean, comfortable and charming. The big let down is the food which is overpriced and poor, especially for a region boasting such excellent and fresh produce. Bin the chef and make yourself outstanding.

Really a great place! We had a triple room which was bright and clean. The bathroom and shower were good, the kettle and tea supplies was a nice extra. The pool area was lovely, shaded by a huge fig tree. We didn't swim as it was a bit too cold but it looked clean. Perfect location for visiting the roman ruins

Stayed here in 2012, had a great night, really comfortable room, excellent meal, great value overall, and a great Malaga-side place to stay rather than bother with slightly downbeat night-time Tarifa - BUT never submitted a review! However, on the way back from Cadiz (to Malaga) last week, we decided to re-acquaint ourselves by stopping for a coffee on a dreary cloudy day - and, 2 hours later, realised that I had left my bag behind - passports, cards, everything... drove back, and... EVERYTHING WAS THERE! The bag had been retrieved, held at reception - no big deal... but an extremely big deal to me! Thank you Meson de Sancho - that's what I call integrity... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - what else can we say - we will be back!!

I stayed in this hotel for two nights earlier this month.It is an older established hotel which has some nice features in particular the Spanish furniture and fitments.
Although it is on a busy road the traffic noise is of no consequence and it is very close to Tarifa by car where there are a number of nice places to eat.
I had breakfast each morning which was traditional and more than adequate.

Room Tip: I stayed in a two bedroom family room which was ideal as we were travelling with an additional adult...
