I truly enjoyed being in Tarifa, but I must admit that I hated our hotel room at El Escondite del Viento. Horrible, horrible bathrooms. Just because something is trendy, does not mean that it is comfortable or practical. The see - through glass walls of the bathroom were ridiculous. I have seen this type of configuration before and have avoided it - somehow I missed the fact that this sort of bath was in the hotel or I would never have booked - my mistake.
I feel I must warn people of this situation. There was a mold smell coming from the bathroom that was so strong we had to keep the window open. The view out the window was of a destroyed building. It was covered in trash. Even if I did not own the property next door, I would have made an effort to keep it from being an eyesore for my customers.
On the up side, the location was excellent and the staff was thoughtful, fixing us breakfast when we had an early bus - but then again, breakfast did not even begin until 9am.
The bed was very comfortable.
Truly - even if you are the best of friends and/or lovers - there are just some things you don't want to share. Don't get the room with the glass bathroom!
