10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay at chipibeach chez Flo! Lovely studio with very comfy beds, great shower, private terrace and complete kitchen. Everything very clean as well. Jan and Miriam are very friendly and their breakfast was delicious. The location was perfect for us: walking distance to the beach and the centre of chipiona, which is a friendly beachtown with many Spanish tourists and locals (not so many other nationalities, we liked that!). Also, we could borrow beach chairs and parasol from chipibeach b&b (and beach toys and balls if we would have wanted to). Driving distance from Cadiz and Jerez for day trips. Highly recommended!
Cons: Can't think of anything..

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very nice clean and comfortable room. Quiet at this time of the year, very close to magnificent boulevard along Atlantic coast.
Cons: Pretty difficult access by car but perhaps Google map didn’t work as it should.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fine fixtures within, large solarium on rooftop. Friendly and capable staff, quiet room amid lots going on outdoors. Decent breakfast on premises.
Cons: Difficult to locate while driving, but once you find it they will park your car on site for a reasonable fee. We found free parking a very short walk away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We liked everything. It is a charming, family run hotel. The decor is superb and the staff could not have been more helpful. The room was modern and had a beautiful view. In fact they upgraded us to a room with a small balcony and a fantastic view of the sea. It was also quiet at night. Breakfast was in the bar next door and you could order whatever you like. Rafael was great as he even parked our car as the car park wasdifficult. The hotel was in the centre of the action but was like an oasis of calm. We used the solarium too.
Cons: Nothing. I would recommend that if you opt for parking get Rafael to do it. It is such a tight squeeze.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good value hotel, right in the heart of Chipiona. Clean, comfortable room, good air conditioning. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Private car park available which must be a bonus in high season - we ended up parking on the street about 200 metres away which was fine, but we were not here in the main season. There was a good deal on breakfast when we came. It's in the cafe next door - well worth it if the additional cost seems low. Room had television and fridge. Wifi worked fine.
Cons: No safe in the room. Fridge was a bit smelly though looked clean. No English language stations on the tv, though I don't expect there to be.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The host was very friendly and helpful. The place is cute, very close to the beach though no view.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and interior of the hotel and friendliness of staff.Breakfast excellent. On site car parking. I am ashamed to say my Spanish language skills are zero. This resort has few British visitors so little English is spoken. Everyone tried to help us . Perfect time of year to visit weather in early 20s . Spring flowers out and trees full of Oranges and Lemons. Chipiona is a good base to visit this area.
Cons: Everything was perfect
10.0 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location, we walked into Chipiona and it's only a 7 minute drive to Sanlucar. Friendly staff and modern/sleek architecture and style. Pool area is fabulous with a gorgeous view. Our seaview room with a terrace was excellent.
Cons: The breakfast could have been better. It was a very basic buffet with Spanish/international options, none of them hugely good. Coffee - a must in Spain - was decidedly average from a machine. Fruit was good and fresh but breads were average and could have been fresher. Wouldn't have minded but 11 euro per person is a lot for what we had.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very polite staff everywhere. Excellent breakfast. The view from the terrace of the restaurant ist wonderful. We stayed there at the beginning of October, so a lot of hotels had already closed. The Beach is broad and it is possible to walk there for kilometers. The sea at the Costa de la Luz however is rather wild, nothing for easy and calm swimming, but of course for surfing. From Chipiona it is easy to reach other places (Sevilla, Cadiz) by car.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from our balcony was just amazing and the sunsets fantastic. The staff were great really good breakfast and everywhere spotless clean.
Cons: Nothing to dislike fabulous hotel

6.3 Good
Pros: Good breakfast; breakfast time (to 11:00); pool on the roof in the 2. floor; the beach Nice and living original town just 500m away
Cons: often problems with the internett: connection and stability; to many 'small things' which shouldn't be in a 4 star place: nearly no art or design works at all; long hallways without any optical breakups (looks as if you are on a ferryboat); some interior issues: very small mirror squeezed between curtains wardrobe; unpractical water tap in the shower (easy to touch with your bak and change temperature); cleaning tables and chairs with the same cloth shouldn't happen, but it did every day (breakfast hall)
9.0 Excellent
Pros: A lovely welcome from the reception staff, fabulous layout, and pool location.The food was amazing. Good value and great presentation. The bedroom was clean and spacious and the bathroom simply fab.
Cons: The only downside was having to hold on to our cutlery for the main meal. That seemed out of character for the service we received but we told the receptionist so hopefully they will correct that. Also the pool area closed very early, it would have been nice to sit there and watch the sunset.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: hotel style
Cons: not cleaned windows
9.2 Excellent
Pros: On the beach. Great beds and bathrooms.
Cons: We had a room looking out to a courtyard. Drinks were a bit pricey.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: So unbelievably clean. The cleaners were out washing floors, sunbeds, corridors. Our room was cleaned daily and quickly. We were never disturbed. The restaurant and food was excellent consistently for the whole week. The staff smiley, helpful and always making an effort with the children. The pools again were so clean and well laid out with great lifeguards who were quite strict but for good reason.
Cons: The only down side was the night bar area was so brightly lit and felt a bit bare with uncomfortable club chairs so we didn't stay long each night. Large sofas all at one end around a TV could have been dotted around the lounge then we would have stayed for a relaxing drink.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Very welcoming & helpful
Cons: Noisy until quite late. Due to bar close by.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: An old building in the old town centre with boundless charme around a pretty courtyard. 3 minutes to the nearest beach, about 10 to the big beach. Our room boasted a little terrace overlooking the street and chairs on the balcony of the inner courtyard. The room was small but very functional. If you come in high season you might prefer a room giving onto the courtyrad as it is calmer
Cons: Nothing not to like

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A beautiful place near the beach for a peaceful vacancion.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Extremely spacious and comfortable hotel with great sea views all the way to Miami. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Food good. We used this hotel as our base camp for the 2019 Moto GP at Jerez and the very lively mayhem associated with this event put us right on the button. Well impressed.
Cons: My only gripe is car parking, it does not exist. The hotel are perfectly honest and up front about this, but in this age of car rental companies nailing your credit card for thousands in the event of a scratch. Please provide car parking, it is possible, I have surveyed the patch.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great. One of the best coffees of the whole trip and I have never seen Cava at breakfast before (I didn't have any!). Our room overlooked the beach and so had a lovely aspect. It is unfortunate that the hotel is directly above the Irish bar, I am just thankful that we stayed on a Sunday night and therefore we were not disturbed by noise late into the night.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Localization, parking, direct sea view: room 308 with big tarace, 311 more space without tarace.
Cons: Weak cofee for the breakfast. Should be real cofee machine, not for pills.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Many many thanks to Maria Jose una chica estupenda!!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We liked the full experience from arrival to departure. We booked half board thinking lunch was the next day but it was at the day of arrival. They kindly changed it for us. The hotel location was amazing, right on the beach with amazing sea views and sunsets from the nicely decorated terrace with Balinese umbrellas. I like they think about little details - the room came with small bottle of local wine to taste. Food was very tasty. Living in Andalusia for 5 years I know they like to fry everything, but this hotel goes beyond. They offered really great home-cooked style dishes and didn't spare money on things like asparagus, anchovies, artichokes, goat cheese. Very impressive! If more time we would have rented bikes as well.
Cons: 4 poster bed is nice, but in a bigger room. I hit my hip when walking around. Using shower tap is not easiest, if I was very hard to twist it.
7.9 Good
Pros: Great location, comfortable beds, parking.
Cons: The smell in the bathroom,
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel was exceptionally clean, breakfast catered for all tastes and food was plentiful and well presented. The position of the hotel was perfect,right on the beach in a very quiet area, the restaurants that were within a 5-10 min walk were excellent and good value for money.
Cons: Our only negative comment was that we had to pay 8 Euro a day for the hotel car park.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel La Parrita is very conveniently located for walking around old town Rota, to the beach, and to the Navy Base. A supermarket is across the street, which was great for picking up some yogurt and fruit for breakfasts. The room has a mini fridge. The staff is very friendly, and since many US sailors stay here, they speak English. Our room was very clean and comfortable.
Cons: We stayed in Room 203, which is located directly over the bar. Noise can be a factor, as the bar is busy all day and well into the night. Running the air conditioner added a little bit of soft white noise, which helped with the bar noise. Some people might also find the bed and pillows too hard, but I had no problem with them. I wish we'd had a microwave.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: it’s close to everything
Cons: if i have one bed me and my girlfriend couldn’t stay in the room together bc it only had one bed

Fish and seafood was a speciality.
Cons: We loved the hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel staff were very helpful. Nice view from our room. Ideal location for running and golf.
Cons: It was a shame that the swimming pools were not open in the morning. Some days only open from 3 to 6pm.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very good beds and WiFi. Good breakfast. Nice scenery and pools. The sea food restaurant was good and has a couple of nice wines.
Cons: There were ants in the ground floor room. Fortunately they were able to change it for us. The rooms were not as new as we had read in other reviews. Parking in the street is difficult and parking inside the hotel is quite expensive.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous hotel nice spa
Cons: Beach not in the backyard but 10 min of walk
7.5 Good
Pros: Location, breakfast, evening cenar buffet and staff in restaurant.
Cons: Bar staff not very friendly or very helpful - poor show actually. Room cleaning not great.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was very nice- more than enough options for a week long stay. Hotel overall is a very nice place to stay and a great value for the money.
Cons: One item that is disappointing is they now charge for parking (we have stayed there before- as recently as 9 months ago this year- and there wasn't a charge). This should also be more clear on the booking sites. Lunch and Dinner are pricy for the buffet options- not as bad for the bar/ lounge. They also do not have an iron or ironing board for loan- not a big deal if you're traveling for leisure/ vacation, but is if you're traveling for work as I was.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great facilities especially the large pool & spa. Had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the golf course which was great.
Cons: Thought the buffet food was very average
9.2 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: All the staff were very friendly and although some had very little English they were excellent and tried to help at all times. Reception staff all spoke English and were happy to interpret when I was "chatting" to one of the waitresses. Google translator comes in handy! One of the waiters was very helpful with my menu choices, I have seafood allergy so need to be really careful. Restaurant food was really superb, service great and prices also very competitive. We ate in restaurant for the three night of our stay. Lovely to sit on terrace with drinks and watch sunset. Breakfast buffet as expected, husband could have his cooked "English" and I was happy with fruit and selection of breads and pastries. The room was very comfortable, very clean and fabulous sea view. Wouldn't bother to stay elsewhere now if we wanted to go to Chipiona when visiting family.
Cons: Tea and coffee facilities in all rooms would be great.
7.1 Good
Pros: Nice restaurant. Great location.
Cons: We booked a suite with sea view. The suite was to the side/back of the hotel and we could only see the sea by leaning over the balcony. Not exactly what I would describe as a sea view. Staff spoke very little english. Breakfast is served in the basement no direct light in the breakfast room.
