Expedia listed this hotel in Cadiz, Spain not in the province of Cadiz. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that we had to take a ferry 20 minutes to Rota, that the last ferry left Cadiz in the early evening - so we couldn't return to the city until the morning, and that then we had to find a taxi for another 20 minute ride to the hotel. We felt like Expedia had organized our kidnapping.
Thus blinded by anger we saw virtually nothing of this mostly clean, but not entirely, resort hotel. Oh yeah, the food was good if you have a lot of money with which you wish to be parted and its near a beach. BUT ITS NOT NEAR CADIZ.
