We decided to visit Tarifa on our Spanish trip thanks to a glowing recommendation in the Rick Steve's guide. It's a great place to visit before or after the ferry ride to Tanger.
We had a hard time finding a great place to stay, but Dos Mares was recommended to us by a friend. In general we were happy with the stay. The facility is a very nice beach resort with good restaurants, a great beach, a pool (which was not maintained very well), a very good breakfast buffet, and some nice rooms. We stayed in a cabana which was a very large room, beach views and a big bathroom. But there was no refrigerator in the room (would have been nice for cooling water), the bed was AWFUL on our backs, the staff was pretty ambivalent (especially the front desk staff), and it was pretty expensive.
So even though it was not a great 'value', it was a good place to stay overall and we enjoyed ourselves. I think if they worked on a few things it would be a much better place, but if you want a decent place to stay and don't mind the things I listed, you should be very happy!
Note: It is about 10 minutes by car from Dos Mares to the town center, and if you have a car it is not an issue. But if you don't have a car, it's not really a viable place to stay...
