“Friendly & Accommodating”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights over Christmas whilst visiting family near by. We found the room large (with 2 double beds) and comfortable. The bathroom was large with a big Jacuzzi hot tub. We brought our own kettle and mugs/coffee as this is not included but the room had a mini fridge which was most useful. The room was cleaned every day including Christmas even though we said it wasn't necessary. My 10 year old son made friends with the owners' three children and was invited to sit with them for dinner and made very welcome. The restaurant is very good, we had 3 evening meals there and each time it was exceptional. We found it good value for money and enjoyed our stay.

Clean and friendly, comfortable hotel. We stayed here for a wedding and the room was ideal. There was a fridge and a comfortable bed. Not many frills, but ideal for a short stay. I would certainly recommend to those looking for a decent hotel at a good price.

I had booked a twin room online (Booking.com) for this hotel for one night, 2 adults. I later get an email saying the price quoted on the website is wrong and it costs more. I called the next day to say that was false advertising and they should honor the booking and then advised them to change it asap for other people. Instead the Manager started shouting at me saying, "you no stay at my hotel" and hung up!!
I think they are advertising the most economical deals and then changing them once you book. Some people may be swayed to pay the difference and stay but as a matter of principle, this is a scam and should be avoided at all costs - especially the very rude Manager.

Rather basic, but our rooms were clean, had decent beds, and good, hot, showers. Out of season, at least, the bar is not open late, and is not especially inviting. Breakfast was simple but perfectly OK.
The marina at Sotogrande is an easy 5-10 minute walk, and there are number of bars, restaurants and shops a 5 minute walk in the other direction.

Very friendly, made you feel welcome. Very helpful when our hire car broke down. Rooms very spacious. Overall good service, would stay again. Although shame not in another location, as need a car to visit surrounding areas, unless you're an active walker.

Do not expect "grand luxe" but rather basic needs to be fulfilled. I had a big room with sea view which is not great... but it is better than rooms that are by the road (pretty noisy)
Hotel and rooms (rather vintage) are maintained ...SO SO
Personnel hardly speaks english
overall got what i was expected
be careful : google map is wrong

I don't quite get the star-system in Spain, I think they have to be real strict. As far as I'm concerned this could pass as a 3 star hotel. I have stayed here two times now, in one standard room and the one that is the size bigger. They are both quite big with nice bathrooms, bathtub, TV. No mini-bar though.

The rooms are cleaned everyday, towels changed aswell. They have a nice restaurant at the hotel that serves everything from breakfast to dinner. They do serve a good Spanish breakfast; toast with butter and jam, a nice big cup of Café con leche and some yummy freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff is always helpful and service minded.

So, if you are like me, just wanting a place to sleep between your beach visits (the hotel is a 5 min walk from the beach by the way), not caring too much about the decor, then this is a hotel for you. And it's quite cheap too (48€ for a std. double room in late July 11), so you can spend your money on food, wine and shopping instead of on the hotel room :).

Oh, and a small added bonus: They have parking under a roof and next to a wall keeping your car in the shadows trough the morning, so it's nice and cool when you get into it.
