Eating fabulous food in comfortable dining room smokers allowed or not controlled in dining area
location and friendly staff Restaurant too expensive for the food served.
The beautiful setting. I felt the restaurant was just OK. The prices were a bit high for the quality of the food. The food was not BAD, just a little more than I thought it was worth.
Sitting on the balcony was lovely, there was no view as such but we were not overlooked and a little brook ran past the room. The 1/2 pension was extremely good value because the food was superb and there was a good selection. Nothing, some may say it's out in the middle of nowhere but it you are travelling by car then it's a perfect little stop off place to relax.
The restaurant and bar staff was outstanding!
The rooms were spacious and clean. New towels everyday. There was limited parking which was fine in the evening. However, one day there was no parking so had to double park. The reason for limited parking could possibly be explained by it being a Spanish holiday and there being a number of families have come out to the hotel for the restaurant.
Le restaurant de l'hotel était super (bel ambiance, bon, ..) Je le recommande.
Room with view on sea ... only with binoculars
The rooms were very spacious and price was great. There was free parking. The hotel was very easy to get to. Location was farther from town then expected - about a 20 euro cab ride. Breakfast buffet was poor.
Clean, well situated for access to Tarifa, Gibralter, Cadiz... Meals were not inexpensive but they were good quality. Great value for money A minor concern was its location on a busy hwy at a curve in the road.
Wonderful facility, beautiful grounds, large rooms, large marble bathroom, very fine dining room, beautiful decor, free parking, great comfortable beds. No internet in the room
Great location with excellent facilities. The hotel has a lot of character and each room is unique.
The location and setting was excellent. Very peaceful. Restaurant under staffed. The rooms comprising the old part of el cortijo was not of a 4* standard. The newer rooms certainly are. The restaurant had one cook and one waiter. Quality of food disappointing. I would recommend this hotel provided you stay in a superior room, these are located in the new part of the hotel. I would certainly not eat at the hotel.
Situation, Andalucian style, near lovely beach, good pool, good gardens, friendly reception. External windows need painting. More drawer space for clothes. Restaurant billing process requires attention.
Quiet location.Low rise building. Beautiful setting in gardens. Well appointed room. Easy walk to beach, 4 minutes. Easy parking. Short drive to Zahara.
The room, the swimming pool, good food. the communal area's not very inviting or comfortable, plastic bar table's and chairs at a 4 star hotel? Staff not particularly helpful, no children's play area, not much of a spa although I understood there was, nice hotel but not great for my child and I.
leaving we checked out after one night (had booked 6), not even close to being worth the money they charge
Position of the hotel, terace, beautiful garden with S.pool
swimming pool , grounds and room breakfast selection very poor and service was poor at breakfast
Relaxed environment. Internet in Room, Proximity to beach. Being upgraded to a junior suite Having to sign for pool towels
Fantastic location , fantastic swimming pools, good entertainment, good breakfast. Generally, a great place to stay.
Lovely all around! Nice vibe and rooms very spacious and clean. Nice decor and style. Breakfast was AMAZING! Pool and beach nearby. Very relaxing. Perfect stay!
The atmosphere at the hotel was very relaxed, beach was close, outdoor pool excellent, table tennis, tennis and paddle tennis facilities all good. Breakfast was excellent. Childrens play area needs improvement
Really nice staff, in the restaurant and the cleaners Price-comfort is not reasonable.
good laidback atmosphere. friendly helpful staff. clean comfortable rooms. car parking is absolutely atrocious. breakfast buffet is good but otherwise the food offer is repetitive and sometimes overpriced- the same item being served in different outlets at different prices. There is no casual social environment on offer in the evenings. The lobby bar could be good for this but the space is wasted- it is lacking in appeal and energy. rooms need kettles!
We just wanted a beach hotel stop off during our tour of Andalucia. This hotel fitted the description, the room was good and the staff were helpful. The car parking was incredibly tight, I went down one dead end and had great difficulty getting out. The food was OK but pricey for what you got and there was a long que for breakfast. The beach facilities (umbrella, etc.) were not included in the price either, which we thought was a bit much considering the price.
A bit expensive, but very nice hotel with superb breakfast. I recommend it.
Nice relaxing atmosphere Lack of english TV plenty german, italian, dutch !!!! The location is cape Trafalgar!!
The swimming pool, the beach and the sangria!! Yes, the price of the food is to expensive. The hotel is to far out of town. The staff needs to speak more English.
The hotel site was breathtakingly beautiful. Breakfast buffet was wonderful. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. Staff spoke English very well. Staff was helpful with restaurant & other recommendations. We would definitely be return guests.
When we did order food, it was very good. We were disturbed by the staff's lack of courtesy. We felt as if we were an "inconvenience" to the bar/restaurant staff, as well as when checking in. However, we did receive excellent and pleasant assistance when checking out.
Helpful and friendly staff that even helped to cancel our remaining stay. The comfort and cleanliness of the room did not match our expectations.
Possibly my favorite Hotel in the World
The hotel has an excellent layout and great location. Good breakfast, fair restaurant and nice bar. In total the hotal is a recommendable experience. 1) All bungalows and rooms should have a refridgerator, considering the prices. 2) Their pet policy should be revised. There are simply too many dogs! 3) Parking for guests was often obstructed by cars of day-visiting surfers. 4) My fear is that maintenance is slipping, and that the hotel slowly will degrade from the excellent condition it had three years ago, on our first visit.
Liked that you could just step out of your room and be on the beach, also the views were amazing and felt chilled by then end of our stay, this is the third time we have stayed at Dos Mares The only thing that lets Dos Mares down is that there food & drinks are to expensive, reflecting that the other hotels on this stretch of beach are alot lower and far far better food!! Most of the time we went else were to eat and drink, which is a same as its such a lovely hotel
location no double bed
That you have your own bungalow with sea view, and the breakfast was great! Everthing is a little bit old, if they would repair and replace some things it could be a great hotel!
The laid back attitude of the place, combined with excellent facilities. A place to rest and meditate or to be active. Several of the appartments have a strong odor caused by the humid conditions, and I had to change appartment several times.
Location, very close to the beach and free parking. Having dinner by the side of the pool. Spacious room and bathroom kept perfectly clean.
Its close proximity to the beach where there is ample free parking. Bavaria on the Costa de la Luz! Awful. Public areas & rooms dull, dark and depressing. Needs dragging into the 21st century. Dingy corridors & brkfst room in "dungeon" with motorway-cafe plastic tables, no cloths, cheap fabric chairs. Caters for German touring parties. We did not feel welcome as Brits. Were not given room bkd, complained & were transferred. Beware rooms 03 to 06 on ground floor. Doors open directly onto pool, terrace & cafeteria. Absolutely no privacy, not even net curtains. Breakfast a joke, 1 or 2 cereals & cold meats/cheese, diy toast/tea/coffee. After 1st mrng, used local cafe's for brkfst. More expensive than 4-star we stayed at previous 4 nights. Recptn staff ok, but thats all. Won't use again.
Sand in the bed
Hotel was very relaxing place to stay by the beach. Very convenient to restaurants and beach a short walk away from hotel. We would stay there again. Thanks. No fault of the hotel but it rained part of the days. It was nice to have a restaurant in the hotel so we did not have to go out to eat.
The staff were fantastic. Very helpful and when I needed extra assistance they were more than willing to help.
We had a room at the back side of the hotel, which was nice and quiet and has a fantastic view on the surroundings. Staff's language skills may be limited to Spanish but they are very helpfull and willing.Gave us great suggestions on where to have dinner. Minor remark, towels were clean but the fresh smell of being washed was gone.
Beach, birdwatching, sight seeing, eating out, relaxing. No fridge in room
Location - close to the beach, Good pool.
The price is OK, TVs are now nice big LCD, with digital air TV, arround 15 channels. Decoration is horrible, the room smells like my grandmas house. Breakfast is quite poor but for 50€ night that I paid it's just OK.
The hotel has a good location, but the prices seemed quite high. Very clean and convenient, no breakfast included a pity, but the location covered most of disadvantages.
excellent localization, spacious room with nice terrace staff very nice but only Spanish speaking
The situation of the hotel and the parking facilities are good. The beach and boulevard just in front of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and all with necessary comfort. Free WIFI on your room just ask the code! For breakfast just go outside the hotel for a cafeteria near the ocean. The reception has a dual function with the cafeteria next door so there is most of the time no friendly welcome. Because the hotel has a large vide in the middle it’s sometimes noisy.
Location, charm. Breakfast not great.
I love the small village feel of Trifia and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I love the feel of the hotel. It is one of my favorite ones in Spain. Nothing! I liked everything!
The hotel was a very good place to stay. It was very clean , the staff were very friendly. We would recommend it to our friends.
I couldnt fault this place in anyway,shape or form,the staff were unbelievably friendly,the food was great,the location excellent as were the rooms quite simply the best hotel I have stayed in Spain so far. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel at all.
Clean room with air conditioning. Good food, excellent breakfast buffet. Receptionist did not speak any English (but found a colleague who did)
how clean and quiet everything was and the staff very attentive and helpful
Very welcoming, the room clean and tidy with air conditioning that worked. The food in the restauant was excellent and the breakfast was the best value for money we had on our trip.
Cute, quiet hotel. Bed wasn't the best.
We stayed two nights at Hotel Le Torre and enjoyed our stay immensely. The hotel is stylish, thoughtfully designed, has nice rooms and lovely grounds. We paid EC 65 per night in mid-September for a nice double with a great breakfast. We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights had two terrific meals. As in most Spanish hotel and restaurants, the staff were aloof and spoke little English -- exept for one Italian waitress who was both charming and fluent in four languages, including English. What a delight!
The room was nice and the view good The resteraunt was very poor with the meal served cold and raw despite our requests for it to be well done.
Location. We had a car and didn't have to worry about parking. Close to ferry to Tangier. Very basic. No light to read in bedroom. Nowhere to sit. Flies on breakfast buffet.
Location, Atmosphere, Breakfast, restaurant (when it was open!) That the restaurant seemed to close unexpectedly some evenings.
Hotel and rooms were nice and clean and the staff were all very friendly + the food was of a fairly good standard. The lounge and bar facility were very limited.
Air conditioning, bathroom Staff did not speak even a little English
Truly the nicest staff we encountered on our trip. They went out of their way to help us move our car to a safe parking spot when we got back from Tangier after midnight. We only expected Tarifa to be a pit stop on our road trip, but it turned out to be one of the best places we visited, and our experience at this hotel was no small part of that.
territory design small rooms
The staff was very helpful and the place was absolutely beautiful. The restaurant was excellent as well. I was sad that the restaurant was not open for lunch (only dinner), because I loved the food!!
Lovely Garden setting very relaxing despite proximity to main road. Staff very friendly and close to the beach. Restaurant was also fantastic. Quite far away from tarifa town but very close to the best beach.
Very nice, and relaxing environment, the green garden with the little pool combined with the arabish elements is like contrapoints to the natural seashore. Most of the building is made with handycraft elements, but it makes a unique appearance.
I had a bungalow-style room facing a lovely garden ---nice setting, lovely roses, palms and orange trees, and pool close by. Very good secured parking. Wonderful to have refrigerator in room. Breakfast was typical of Spain, but it was marginal at best. Food was not presented in an inviting way -- just set out. The morning wait staff was not cheerful or friendly. Coffee was not readily available as in most self-serve situations -- one cup only. The dining area was dimly lit and the decorations of stuffed animals (bull head and deer head) and bull fights did not aid a pleasant ambience. Personally, I would have preferred breakfast on my little terrace.
The staff were very helpful. It was ideally situated for our onward journey to Gibraltar.
Beach Pool was closed for the season ?? Nothing around except beach.
Nice swimming pool, 130m to the beach and 3Km to Tarifa. Wireless internet has no reach to rooms
3 stars is too much. The price is also excessive.
Friendly staff with good food, other than breakfast - see below. The bungalow rooms at the back of the hotel are well laid out. The best value hotel we have found near Tarifa. Breakfast options were rather limited. The hotle looks onto a busy main road so a room at the back is essential for peace and quiet.
Staff, food in restaurant excellent, Tarifa is great Distance from town meant we had to catch taxis in and out if we wanted to visit at night without having to drive (taxis not plentiful and expensive), also hotel was across a very busy road from the beach so it isn't a beach-front location
Price of the room was really good. Hotel is located close to the beach.
Location was perfect for our needs and the room we had in the garden was also perfect. As we were room only it allowed us to have breakfast outside everyday on our own private terrace. The pool area was also very good. Will use again. Restaurant staff were not very amenable and did not speak much if any English, but the food was acceptable.
noise from the road right in front, did not sleep well a single night
