Modern and clean, view over docks to Gibraltar. Difficult to find until we saw the sign on the roof. Directions not easy to follow.
We have now stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions. Compared to other hotels in the town (at which we have also stayed) in our opinion the AC Algeciras offers by far the best value for money.
Very good and clean hotel located close to the port The equipment of the fitness center was limited to 3 unites
Staff is very kind and hotel confortable
stylish modern well-situated hotel no
The modern design of the room was excellent. The buffet breakfast was excellent ( though nothing cooked...). Good double glazing made for adequate soundproofing. Parking was near the hotel but took a while to find and sort out - really should be better for this category. Also, the modern design meant that the toilet door was actually never really closed........could be a problem for some!
Free mini bar was very nice. Rooms were small but very clean and modern.
It is a clean modern hotel, very visually attractive. . We could not adjust our airconditioner to our personal taste.
Rooms, reception, facilities, everything pretty much.......superb. Vague on-street directions to Parking (a redundant but very large sign) led us to a closed entrance to a disused park which was then very difficult to get out of.....
well designed, except cheap flooring in the room
An excellent hotel all round only complaint was noise of seagulls!
traditional Spanish feel. Not touristy. Lovely grounds didn't dislike, but feel dinner menus could be more interesting
the coffee in the resturant was awful. internet use in the room was greatly overpriced.
this hotel reminded us of our visit to sri lanka many years ago
This is a beautiful gracious hotel with enormous manicured grounds. The layout of our room with separate area off with desk where we could use our laptop for free, also free parking outside the hotel door. The bathroom with bidet & wc separate to bathroom. Built in 1901 as a luxury hotel,thick bedroom walls that kept out sounds from outside or other guests. Historic framed photos in public areas. The fact you can stay in a hotel today for a modest amount where prast guests were Roosevelt & Churchill just to name a few of the many famous signatures on the brass plaques in the reception. Perfect for weddings, stunning backdrop for photographic memories. 2nd generation members of staff, display their pride in the hotel.I Will return.
The grounds were lovely, the rooms very spacious--loved the bathroom, which was two rooms--the shower and bathtub in a separate room from the toilet and bidet. We had asked for a non-smoking room with a double bed. Upon arrival, we were placed in a room with twin beds. When we inquired further, we were placed in a smoking room with a double bed. I was of the impression that the special comments section of our reservation hadn't been looked at.
The one bar closed at 12.00 at night - not acceptable for business people
peace and quiet .the ambience of the hotel .beautiful setting would arrange to stay again uncomfortable bed , extra pillows
The room was spacious and also quiet. I thought that the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful which makes a refreshing change to some hotels we have stayed in. We wanted to use a computer with connection and there was no facility for this although there was wifi.
Decor, ambiance and good food Disappointed indoor swimming pool not open and not notified beforehand
I enjoyed the room, liked the fact it had a seperate glass shower cubicle. There was nothing I didn't like.
easy to find,clean modern room would have been nice to have tea/coffee making facility
It's a famous hotel, beautiful and full of comforts, but with a very good price (50 Euros x double room). You must have a car if you want to stay there because the position is not very good (poligono industrial de palmones)
Good location having access to the highways. Very clean and new
The room was spacious and well-decorated. The hotel is bright and clean. Parking was free. The location is terrible: in the middle of an industrial area, near a multi-plex mall. We chose the hotel despite the location because it had a restaurant; staff did not tell us at check-in that the restaurant was closed, and we were left to eat in the nearby mall. They were unapologetic about the situation. Though earnest, staff was young and timid, rather than friendly or helpful.
Room with view on sea ... only with binoculars
The restaurant and bar staff was outstanding!
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 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.
location and friendly staff Restaurant too expensive for the food served.
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.
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
Le restaurant de l'hotel était super (bel ambiance, bon, ..) Je le recommande.
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.
Eating fabulous food in comfortable dining room smokers allowed or not controlled in dining area
Relaxed environment. Internet in Room, Proximity to beach. Being upgraded to a junior suite Having to sign for pool towels
Position of the hotel, terace, beautiful garden with S.pool
Great location with excellent facilities. The hotel has a lot of character and each room is unique.
leaving we checked out after one night (had booked 6), not even close to being worth the money they charge
swimming pool , grounds and room breakfast selection very poor and service was poor at breakfast
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.
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.
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.
Quiet location.Low rise building. Beautiful setting in gardens. Well appointed room. Easy walk to beach, 4 minutes. Easy parking. Short drive to Zahara.
A very nice hotel, tastefully decorated You need to put better signposts to find it. 'We circled around for about 20 minutes after we got off the autovia.
Room was spacious and comfortable with a nice balcony. The terrace and garden were lovely after being in busy cities. There was a nice pool but we didn't swim as it was too cold. We had an excellent meal in the restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't have any complaints whatsoever.
The pool, the food in the restaurant for breakfast
Swimming Pool We were given a smokers room (very strong smoke smell) and the air conditioning did not work.
Extremely peaceful location. Our room overlooked the beautiful garden. The cleanliness of room and bathroom at all times. Staff courteous and friendly. No tea or coffee making facility in the room, and the inablity to hang a dress properly as the wardrobe was too short.
close to los barrios commercial center, and close to ferry terminal
The balcony overlooking the park was very nice. After a long day of travel, sitting out there and watching the sunset made for a perfect end to the day.
Modern, clean, well equipped and nice hotel. Comfort definitely appropriate to 4 stars. Large, spacious lot at the back of hotel. Clean and big swimming pool. Staff apart from the restaurant very friendly and eager to help. Accessible amenities. Big car park free of charge. Waiters in hotel restaurant sometimes too self-confident and a bit rude. This was the only drawback of this hotel.
Just staff because was nice and helpfull. Handy to get to La Linea - just 15 minutes by bus directly from hotel. The rooms must be renovated , there are old and dirty and bathrooms are disgusting!!!! The gym too small and really warm!!! The location it's really bad - 50 minutes walk to the nearest beach - Palmones, very noisy from Motorway and factory.
It is a new hotel with new facilities!
the recepionists smiled nicely the pool cuold be closed an hour later
nice very comfortable new hotel quite poor breakfast, matching more 2 star hotel standards
Very nice room, public parking next to the hotel, pool, good location, helpful and efficient staff Breakfast was good but a bit disappointing for a 4-star hotel
we stayed for a night on the way from Tarifa to Granada. It was ok, but there could be a pool bar open to have a late drink. It's not so easy to find. We asked at a kiosk and they guided us.
Very clean, very nice rooms, excellent staff
good the pillow is not confortable I need more
comfort easy excess unclear check in time booking.com stated 12pm to 3 pm arrived 1pm rooms not ready but did not cause major problem all rooms ready within 1 hour.
The ease of finding the hotel and getting to all the sightseeing locations.
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!
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.
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!
Really nice staff, in the restaurant and the cleaners Price-comfort is not reasonable.
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.
Nice relaxing atmosphere Lack of english TV plenty german, italian, dutch !!!! The location is cape Trafalgar!!
Fantastic location , fantastic swimming pools, good entertainment, good breakfast. Generally, a great place to 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
Nothing, everithing was bad!!!! We came in hotel at 16:00 o'clock and the room was stil not ready!!! Wals in the room are so thin than you can here somebody's burp from the second floor. When somebody flushes the toilet you here it in your room like it is beside your bed. Rooms and furniture are old and not as clean as they should be. Hotel has nothing in old andalusian stile!!!! Hotel is overvalued, even 50eur per night per room would be too much.
The Hotel is directly at the autovia and has a lot of parking places, so that it is easy to get to the beaches tarifa in 20 minutes. To Gibraltar is directly at the hotel a busstop, so that you do not need a car, to get there
Easy to find, hotel is located just on highway. Easy to pack and for free, there is packing for free before the hotel with sufficient qty of space, at least we found place for our car without troubles. Good restaurant with Menu del dia - tasty food for reasonable price. Internet was ok in the room. may be price
Central location. Easy parking. Friendly attentive staff. Free WiFi internet. No garden. No balcony.Hard pillows. No tea/coffee making facilities.
Lovely room, clean, nice hotel. The room was very basic, but served it's purpose nicely. The bed was hard (but we were so tired, it didn't matter). Very difficult to get to if you miss the turn off the main road! Insanely loud croaking frogs outside the window! We didn't eat at the hotel so we can't comment on the breakfast.
Wonderful and very helpful English speaking staff!! They went above and beyond to make us happy and comfortable. Very nice place, enjoyed our stay very much. Wonderful patio to relax, read a book or have a glass of wine. Great place for a group of three to stay in one room with three nice beds for each guest. Marcado accross the street open until 10 PM. Parking was easy and safe. Good location to get to many different places.
It was a nice hotel for the purpose it was intended, a wedding reception.
Not available a fine breakfast at the restaurant. Only bar .....
appearance of the hotel smelly in the corridor
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!
location no double bed
Helpful and friendly staff that even helped to cancel our remaining stay. The comfort and cleanliness of the room did not match our expectations.
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.
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
Possibly my favorite Hotel in the World
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.
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.
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.
excellent localization, spacious room with nice terrace staff very nice but only Spanish speaking
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.
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.
