“A very welcome surprise!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This hotel is well worth staying in if you want to have a place to rest your head on the outskirts of Vejer. It is run by a family who make you feel as if you were one of them. There are 16 rooms which are clean and spacious. They also have single rooms which are just that. They have a large single bed but they have not cut down on surrounding space. The double rooms are also well appointed and spacious All rooms are air conditioned and have TV although, as far as I can see, there is no satellite TV in the rooms. Downstairs, in the breakfast area there is a large TV which shows international news in English and the hotel has Internet which can be used in the downstairs/lounge area.
If you are British, please remember that Spanish hotels do not provide tea and coffee in the rooms. The bar downstairs is open though, where you can get tea and coffee whenever you want it. There are no mini bars in the rooms either.
As this hotel has just been refurbished, some of the swimming pool area is still being built. The pool is large and is surrounded by a grassed area. Changing rooms are under construction.
Breakfast is served downstairs and Juan Carlos and Madi take care of your every wish. This is not a buffet breakfast but they will do their best to give you whatever you want.
There is a small restaurant which is very good and at the bar you will find a selection of homemade cakes including the most gorgeous brownies!
I thoroughly recommend this hotel for all age groups!!

We chose this hotel by chance and were so pleased with our overnight stay as Juan Carlos, the director made us feel so welcome! Our room 16 on the 2nd floor was spacious and spotless!!
The next morning Juan prepared us breakfast and helped us choose a place to stay in our next destination, Sevilla! So if you are looking for a great place nearby to Vejer, that is easy to find with private parking and no narrow one-way streets to negotiate then this is the one for you!

Room Tip: Room 16 on 2nd floor was very spacious and had a private outdoor area!

This is a clean, modern simple hotel nearer to Vejer than Barbate despite the postal address.
Rooms are clean and tidy and the staff are very helpful and cheerful.

If you want a nice budget hotel from which to visit the old town of Vejer and sample the gastronomic delights of that town then this is good place to base youself.
