We didn't know that we had to make a reservation to get into the spa.
restaurant food was of a high standard the practice of dogs left alone in rooms as a dog owner I know they get lonely they then start to bark as they are in unfamiliar surroundings better to leave them at home
The Hotel Playa de la Luz is a beautiful hotel. The location is great for those that love the beach. They do a great job in making guests feel comfortable. The hotel is a great choice for international guests that want to be pampered. There was nothing I didn't like about the Playa de la Luz.
Nice location at the coast, just steps from the beach.
The public parts of the Hotel were 1st class The room we had was tiny and poorly presented. The guests of the major tour operators got far superior rooms at the same price we paid
Second stay, just as good as before. Room with breakfast great value. Good buffet breakfast, and dinner if required. Nothing negative. Clientele this trip mostly German or Spanish, older, quiet and pleasant: busy but not crowded in early October. Not sure I would want to stay in midsummer, when it is likely to be crowded with families. Location on the beach but out of town, so car really required. Some good restaurants half a mile or so towards the town, and of course in the town itself, but parking more difficult there.
Friendly and efficent staff
The hotel was close to beach, centre of town and church. Reception staff were most accommodating and friendly. I couldn't eat the salty fish at lunch once.
good location and views. beds not very good.
Staff, facilities very good, could not be faulted. Nothing
the food and golf course
The sea and beaches and nice surroundings (mostly due to the golf courses). After the classy atmosphere and excellent service of the Barcelo in Malaga, this hotel was somewhat of a dissapointment. It looked cheap, the service was very slow or non-existent (e.g. waiting more than 30 min for a simple sandwich) while it was the most expensive booking of our entire trip. Restaurant only has buffet menu.
The hotel was very nice and the staff were very helpful. Especialy when I found, what looked like a baby silverfish in the bed. The staff had the bed chnged immediately.The buffet breakfast was a plus also as there are no resturants readily available in the local area. Also during the winter season, they did not chatge for parking.
Location-at the Golf course
Golf location, quiet place, very good training and golf facilities.Stayed there two years ago and hope to return. No
Good price/quality relationship People should have place to park the car as the parking (although exists) is not working. With the current process to manage this problem, guests are forced to carry the luggage for a few hundred feets to reach the hotel... Unnecessary as there is a underground space that could be used.
Almost nothing The hotel is built of 5 different buildings, far from each other, especialy in very rainy day as we had. We came to enjoy the spa, it was 500m away and it was so full of local people that we couldn´t entre. They shouldn't define the hotel as spa hotel but as an hotel who exidently has a near by spa which you have to reserve your entrance weeks earlier.
The location is wonderful, the view was amazing, the food and wine and excellent. The entire staff was always helpful and understanding. The parking spaces are very small for more than a compact car
Easy walking distance to the town, the beach. No air conditioning and no air flow in the room, it was pretty hot. The shower kept going from ice cold to burning hot in seconds.
The location is fabulous! We were on the water and walking distance to the main walking/shopping/dining street. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is beautifully appointed.
Location and room size
Very nice room and location. Breakfast was a very nice spread. Pool bar was good and nicely priced Bad smell in bathroom. Also, water in shower went from very cold to scalding hot frequently while I was bathing without adjusting the temperature control
fantastic location, superb a la carte restaurand, fabulous breakfast and good service Nothing
The location was nice and parking convienent even if it was not free. The price was more expensive than I think it deserved. I guess that is the price for staying by the beach.
Great location! Fantastic breakfast included in rates. The staff could if been more helpful in sight seeing questions.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for walking around Rota. The beach is cleaned each morning and the sand is soft. Although my visit in Rota was business related, I felt on a semi-vacation. The food at the hotel is also very good.
We had a warm welcome and staff were very helpful. The location was great and we would have no hesitation about going to the hotel again
Relaxed nature of the hotel together with helpfulness of staff - especially as i was with my 78 year old mother! Only a small point - although fruit was availble would have like fresh friut salad and fresh orange juice with breakfast.
excellent position staff friendly double room was on the small side furniture was a little tired !
its proximity to the sea, its quietness, the breakfast buffet and the possibility to eat brekfast on the balcony, the friendly service although the service was perfect, the dinner menues were somewhat below our expectations
Great view of the ocean from the terrace The breakfast buffet was very simple and "a bit dirty" but the atmosphere of the hotel makes you forget it rather quickly
Location right at the beach, very helpful stuff, nice restaurant with view to the ocean, good food.
Cheap and quiant
The hotel is located right on the beach, ideal for travelling in the area. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Hotel staff very friendly. The coffee at the breakfast bar was not as good as other Spanish coffee we had throughout Spain. The town is very quiet as it was the end of their holiday season and there was not a big choice of restaurants but what we found was excellent.
small family hotel, relaxed, more intimate than larger hotels, good location over looking beach and within easy walking distance to centre of town
Well located hotel with helpful and pleasant staff. Good supply of maps for the local and surrounding areas.
Access to Cadiz was good via the ferry The hotel garage is really only suitable for small cars. We scratched out rental BMW318 triing to negotiate the entrance.
Location, price, cleanliness, and friendly staff.
Very conveniently located; comfortable rooms; staff very friendly and supportive
Value for the area. Fast in room internet. Nice balcony in room. Free parking is rare in Spain. Overall this is a good place to stay. Shower water temperature can change up or down quickly.
The receptionists at the Hotel Caribe are the very best. They are always very pleasant and extremely helpful. It is always a joy to stay at the Hotel Caribe. I noticed that the bar/cafeteria were closed more often than in the past.
noisey! rooms were not very sound proof and very noisey.
All the staff were very helpfull and friendly
Close to bus line...decent places to eat/buy food within short distance...very nice staff, good English, helpful...very nice pool. Rooms need some renovating, especially showers, which are still way too SMALL!...but still a great value for what I paid (46 e, includes adequate breakfast).
I liked the fact the staff were fluent in english. One small issue was that there was no way adjust room temperature, as one night was a little cold and the room temperature could not be increased.
The great staff..best resturant/lounge in town..and the location in relation to the beach. like all/most hotels in the area..no washcloths in the restroom.
The cleanliness was excellent throughout the whole hotel language with night staff were excellent. food on the hotel menu was excellent both in preparation and presentation and price No
Location, 20m from the beach. Generous room size. Street parking available. Friendly although no English spoken. My room faced the street and shared a wall with the elevator. Noisy from scooters, voices from a cafe until 1am and the elevator. I paid extra for a balcony but it was very small and was on the street and too noisy to enjoy. I asked to change rooms but this was not possible. This may have been just my own unfortuate experence. Interior facing rooms were probably ok.
Excellent value for the money: you can see the beach and the ocean from your hotel room, it has a small balcony; nice courtyard for dining
Very kind and helpful staff. Perfectly comfortable bed! Very clean!! I was able to smell the cigarette smoke from downstairs. It wasn't terribly strong, but I didn't care for it.
Macavi is a good hotel. We will recomend him for friends. Nice staff, comfortable room and very good location.
It would have been nice to be able to boil water in the room, ie if the hotel had supplied an electric kettle.
The staff were top quality. It was clean and sharp. The town was awful. Don't go if you don't need to - too many ignorant Americans.
This place is a block from the beach, has a great restaurante and an excellent staff. The room was so clean and very nice. I would have liked to be able to get coffee in the morning before 0900. But it was not the worst things
Not much! As the Spanish cannot make tea (They put hot milk in it) and as I dislike coffee I asked for a cup of hot water (I'd got instant tea with me) I was soon told, yes if you pay.
The cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. The best hostel in terms of not only value, but in cleanliness, location and emenities. Excellent!! Room was a bit loud during peak hours.
This hotel was in close proximity to the beach, as we desired, however there was no water view as was indicated in the ad for the hotel.It overlooked a new construction of apartments which severely limited our view in this hotel. As I noted above, there was no view at all, which disappointed us very much. The hotel is very old and in need of updating and cleaning. Furniture and linens were old, dingy, and need to be replaced.The room was extremely crowded and for the price we paid for the stay we were very disappointed. Our expectation was not met and was nothing like we read about in the booking.com ad.
good and helpfull staff nice sea view good position rooms on the smallside
The people at the reception desk were absolutely fabulous. Also the other waiters were friendly and helpful. The 'old' part of the hotel looks like a monastery, so beautiful. The balcony was never cleaned. We founds toenails from other persons there. During the evening the garden-lights are so 'overwhelming' that sitting there and drinking something near the bar is not romantic at all. Less light and more candles we should say. Or create a more romantic part in the nice garden.
good hotel, very comfortable, close to beach, nice small pool
The Reception were fantastic very helpful The bar area and staff
we were comfortable room bed bathroom very clean close to the sea.no parking but we were able to park on the road closeby and car was quite safe. would go again.
The Hotel El Faro is well-situated near the beach and the town for restaurants, tapas bars and bodegas. The noise at night was very noticeable with noise from other rooms during the week and noise from youth and cars during he weekend. The breakfasts were not good value for money but there was little alternative at that time in the morning
Friendly staff, excellent value and a great location by the lighthouse.
An excellent but quiet location for the beach and town centre, with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are basic but well maintained.
The staff were friendly.Breakfast was good.
Friendly and helpful Staff
friendly staff! the breakfast was not good and too expensive.
A really good family run personal hotel. 2 minute walk to the beach and restaurants, really enjoyed our stay & were treated like family!
Staff very friendly Close to the beach and de center of the city
Location was excellent, just on the sea side of very nice resort Chipiona on Costa de la Luz, Cadiz Provence... The Hostal style was lovely. not much I can ask for the rate I paid.. .. TV a bit dodgy, Fridge not working. Did not try air con....Owner looked a bit disinterested, but she cracked a smile every now ad again when I tried my faulty Spanish !!!
Great location, informal atmosphere and set in a more typical Spanish town,
Clean and comfortable. Room with balcony overlooking sea excellent. Fridge in room useful. Manager helpful. Location perfect. We would return!! Could be noisy in high season due its location on sea front.
Staff were unfriendly & indifferent. Breakfast was one roll and one cup of coffee per person, and they wouldn't serve before 9am. No parking facilities and not a particularly comfortable hotel.
This hotel is located on the beach in a very nice village, perfect location for family or couples. Walking distance to the small city center, close to restaurants and tabas bars, 5 min walk from supermarket. Easy to get parkingplace in october close to hotel.
Excellent position and the staff were eager to please. the rooms were generally clean and the beds were fine. Good value. Parking was difficult. Some lights didn't work. Large cockroach in the bedroom! I had to change rooms as the lock on my door was broken.
the room was clean, the thing that I liked most was the position the breakfast was a bit poor
It was right on the beach, the room had a great view and an excellent air conditioner. It also was nicely decorated and had both a tv and refirgerator. The restaurant down stairs was also very good We liked everything
Staff were very friendly and helpful, and really helped us get around El Puerto and to Cadiz, any question was met with the best amount of help we could have got. Booked a double room for romantic holiday with fiance, ended up having to sleep in separate beds, also when asking about changing rooms to one bed were told that this particular 4 star hotel had only 7 rooms with double beds? Also internet usage was 7 euros for half an hour, and there was one english news channel, no cable, and no ability to rent a movie or anything. The technology was poor.
Staff was friendly and helpful Rooms were a little smal.
staff and exalent location room small but very clean
Relaxed atmosphere. Easy access to town and specifically to the beautiful beach
The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. No complaints.
Very helpful staff. Comfortable but small room
the location was very convenient to the beach and shopping areas n/a
I could come and go at any time
