A really nice boutique hotel in a very strange location. Benalup is a very unattractive village about 30 minutes from beautiful beaches at Conil. The hotel room we stayed in was called Tanger which was beautifully decorated but with awful lighting and a totally useless bath. It was huge and after 20 minutes had only filled the bath by 50mm. The restaurant was decorated in an art deco style with fabulous posters and artefacts. During August it has live entertainment every night but out of season it's only on a Friday and Saturday. We went on a Tuesday! The food in the bar was excellent and the service from restaurant and front of house was efficient and friendly. I can't understand why they would charge guests €3 to visit their museum! It was pleasant and I would recommend it but with reservations.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Where do we start? This sure is one bold project and also a rather unique place to describe. More an experience than simply a place to stay it is, as the Utopia itself readily admits, also more of a town within a town, a tribute to the 30's and a maze of cultural and leisure activities all rolled in to one heady package. But to get things going we'll start with the easy bit. The Utopia Hotel itself is located in the old part of Benalup - Casas Viejas, and made up of 16 completely different, and fully restored rooms designed in keeping with the town's old constructions. Each room evokes a theme from the 30's and is named after a specific topic from that decade. Hence rooms such as Tanger, Estrecho, Poetas, Republica, Art Deco, Utopia, Paris 1937, Jazz, Tango, Cabaret, Casas Viejas, Estrellas, Ilustracion, Vanguardias, Paquebot and Zeppelin. Decoration is in keeping with the name of the room, so the Art Deco is decorated in the style of... Well, you've guessed it. ... more less
