My husband and I were lucky enough to have a seasoned Tarifa tourist organise our honeymoon for us. Neither of us had visited Tarifa and had no idea what to expect.
Centrally located, La Estrella was the perfect base from which to explore. It is impossible to get lost, shops, restaurant and the beach are all within a short walking distance. The hotel also offers free WIFI; a must for the modern traveler.
We arrived late in the evening, after reception hours which was no problem; our host even came to the Port to meet us and walk us to the Hotel.
Our room was up a charming winding stone staircase, illuminated by soft romantic candlelight with a smell of incense and music quietly playing in the background.
Our room had patio doors which opened fully to allow cool air in, with bars across the windows which allowed us to feel safe if we chose to leave the doors open whilst we slept.
The floor was linoleum which kept the room from being overheated. There was plenty of hot water in the shower in the morning and although the hotel does not provide breakfast, there was fresh fruit provided daily.
Magazines and maps about Tarifa were placed in our rooms to help us find our way. There was also an a list of activities that you can book through reception.
I unfortunately became unwell during my time in Tarifa due to an infection (nothing to do with the hotel, just an unfortunate circumstance) and being a first time traveller, I had no idea who to contact but I knew I needed to see a Doctor. My husband spoke to reception who offered to call a Doctor for us and gave us directions to the medical centre when we said we would rather go ourselves than call a Dr out.
Our room was cleaned daily and refreshed with new toiletries and toilet roll; even on the day where I was feeling unwell and chose to return to bed, declining room cleaning, the cleaning staff came to the door to ensure that we had enough toiletries.
When it came to checking out, we had an activity planned for that day and had to leave for that activity prior to reception opening. As the room had already been paid for in advance, reception told us the night before that we could drop our keys in the mailbox to save having to come back during reception hours.
We had a lovely stay here and would happily recommend the hotel as a base to others.
