We had a balcony overlooking the sea. It was great. The staff was very helpful, the food was great, especially the breakfasts, and all in all we found the hotel to be very charming and luxurious. Even though the booking.com said no parking, we found a parking right in front of the hotel. Very nice and easy. We loved it and hope to come back. Nothing was wrong. However we stayed there a little off-season, and I think the whole place can be more crowded during the high seasons because the village itself was also very nice.
It was nice and good no
We're a couple in 30's that stayed for 6 nights. The place is amazing with beautiful views over the med. Great location a short walk to the centre but far enough away from what little noise there is from the bars, restaurants, etc. Although always friendly and helpful when found, a severe lack of staff and the fact that a part from at breakfast there was literally only one person on duty at any one time for a hotel with 80 people capacity (that was full on a coupe of nights during our stay).No staff available after 23:00 'til morning. So could not get a drink and end a romantic evening out on the terrace at night at the hotel (on the practically private beach), -what i'd normally expect from any self- respecting 4 star place.
Great position overlooking the beach and bay. Boutique type of place ,very different from package hotels and in a pleasant small town A/C not working and food in restaurant not really as good as expected
Like last time we were here one year ago, we loved everything about the place, especially the location. I recommend that you pay the extra money to have a seaview balcony. It doesn't get any better. It is a beautiful, little gem of a hotel. Gracias!
The hotel is wonderfully situated, right on the beach and is quiet.The common parts are fine. The room was spacious. The fittings in the bathroom were worn out especially the seals on the shower screen which were rusty. The shower head had been replaced badly could not be used in its wall holder at all. The terrace was shared with 5 other rooms(and that was not mentioned at all on the website) and one of the token 'screens' used to separate the terrace area in front of each room (only 1 metre wide) was missing on one side. As it is the end of the season half the wine list wasn't available. The room was too hot mostly due to the fridge overheating in its casing.Unless the bathrooms are revamped, I cannot see how it can continue to be a 4 star.
Beautiful views, great location. Small cozy property but completely lovely. Staff efficient but not overly friendly
Room was large and bright. Terrace overlooking the beach was wonderful.
Small hotel with a nice view. However, for the rest nothing spectacular. Overpriced
Beautiful location overlooking the Mediterranean on a lovely beach. Great views everywhere, including dining room and common areas. Spacious rooms, clean and well-appointed. Marble floors throughout. Ceramic and glass artwork accents. Very good breakfast buffet. Two items, very minor: (1) The staff, while compentent and cheerful, seemed spread a bit thin. The man at reception was also serving breakfast coffee, which made checkouts a bit of a scramble for him. No staff available from 11:00 pm to 7:00 am. (2) The terraced rooms actually share one large common terrace, divided by ropes.
Comfortable room with good town/sea view from balcony. . Friendly staff and very good breakfast. Stayed early March so very quiet. The a/c (on heating) was also very useful as unseasonably cool/damp weather. Great spring flowers in the National Park after the winter rains Room a little spartan.
beautiful terrace looking out over the town. small fridge in the room. great breakfast. beautiful pool no elevator, and the room was up five flights of stairs
It was very comfortable, clean and friendly place. For this amount of money it was really-really good....Staff was also very nice and helpful. No complain.
Very nice hotel. Clean rooms with large balcony with view on the bay. Quiet spot but within minutes walk from village centre and beach. Recommended!
position of hotel perfect lovely views over town st jose and surrounding area friendly helpful staff
Staff was verry kind, lovely room, excellent location
it was right on the beach and good for position for scuba divers.breakfast very continental no
We just relaxed and enjoyed. No we liked everything.
The location was ecellent, ande each room has air conditioning The breakfast was poor
The attitude of the staff - although little or no English spoken all were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, the rooms comfortable and well equipped except for a lack of tea/coffee facilities in the room. All told a very good experience which will be repeated as soon as possible.
General position. San jose is absolutely beautiful. Having to wait until 8.30 before breakfast started. I had to miss breakfast on some occasions due to business meetings.
Nice location in the middle of a very cozy town, next to a good beach. The right place to stay for wlks in the Cabo de Gata National Park
Friendly reception and central position in the town. Limited number of English speakers on reception
Excellent, stylish and cosy hotel for both relax and active time spending
The hotel was an incredible value, and beautiful, with lovely balconies overlooking the sea (which was about 1 minute walk away). The staff were awesome, courteous, and helpful. The restaurant was the best part though - gourmet, creative but not silly, delicious. Our waiter for lunch and dinner was world-class and always had our favourite wine and two glasses ready for us when we wandered in from the beach in the afternoon. Breakfast was incredible... would stay again for a week even if it cost more.
The location was fantastic within short walking distance of restaurants and the main town center. The room had a balcony and was well maintained.
Very friendly and helpful Receptionist, speaks perfect english, very good breakfast (it was the best on our whole trip in andalucia), nice and clean room.we would have tried the restaurant in the nice garden but there was a wedding this evenig. Everything they had prepared therefore looked perfect. So we ate in the small restaurant in the port. san jose seems to be a quite sleepy village with a nice beach (we didn't have enough time to see the beaches around) and without the ugly hotel complexes you can see on the costs of andalucia .Most of the visitors seem to be people from spain. Not many tourists. everything was fine, we will come back
State of the art, comfortable, modern facility. but.... The atmosphere was weird, inhospitable and totally lacking. I only met two employees during my stay both women. They claimed not to speak, English, German or Italian and made little or no attempt to communicate with me or make me feel welcome. a most unsettling and puzzling experience.
All the staff were very helpfull and pleasant. The breakfast was lovely and fresh every day. The perfect location for all the bars and beach and, ideal for visiting other Spanish villages. Wish they would do a cooked breakfast option.
Very friendly people, tranquil location. Quiet
As this is my third visit back - I think that speaks volumes - I really enjoy staying here and find the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful.I intend having another holiday here in the very near future No
Clean and modern, good location, nice breakfast, good to have a pool
Very good for a 2 star hotel. Good location near the beach. Clean and confortable. Overpriced
Available parking, good location, helpful staff, comfortable room, close to Cabo de Gata Coffee not very good and not much choice at breakfast
This hotel worth 3 or even 4 stars in Italy! Everything was nice and in a good position! Rooms were silent and clean. Breakfast and park included Just a simple but complete breakfast, in any case it was included so....
Very clean and smart, great swimming pool, breakfast ok
Position of hotel. Helpfulness of staff. Good soundproofing between rooms More choice at breakfast please!!! Fresh fruit, yoghurts and not just white bread toasted yuk!!!!!
Very central, very practical and staff very friendly.
The establishment in overall is really cleaned and very well conserved. The client services was really great Nothing specially, I haven´t found anything wrong regarding this Hotel and I´ll come back as soon as a I can.
clean well located.
great place to stay. Clean and very friendly!
Very nice,helpful staff A little bit far to the sea
Staff really friendly and helpfull, walking distance form beach and city centre, nice view from the balcony of the room No fridge in the room, Air conditioning too noisy, smell of dump in 2 drawers
For the price a very nice hostal - friendly and helpful staff, clean and tidy
The location of the hotel is excellent. It is a kind of Club Med aspect composed of bungalows situated in a semi desert area. The hotel attendant is also very helpful. To have a car is compulsory.
Beautiful, peaceful setting; wonderful, friendly proprietors and a private and relaxed environment.
Great location, hardcore countryside and yet the apartmente is very spacious and confortable. The staff is amazingly helpful. We always slept late, so just a quirk: they should have a Do Not Disturb sign or system so that cleaning service doesn't try to open the door.. Mind you it was only at 12:30 p.m. :)
Very nice place to stay in the Cabo De Gata park area, aesthetically pleasing with a lovely rural Spanish feel. Big firm comfy bed. Room had air conditioning which was a pleasant surprise as didn't notice that in the listing (?) Recommended. Thank you.
Great location, very nice host, lot of privacy, a hotel with a lot of character, with a great swimming pool! Just what we were looking for...
Nice location, nice surroundings, respect for autenticity, nice materials and architecture. Some cheese would be nice for breakfast. Coffee and fruit was good though
The surrounding scenery is spectacular. Hotel is nicely and comfortably furnished in minimilist style. The sunrise on the sea is not to be missed. Very romantic and 'get away from it all' place. Our room was littered with dead and alive bugs that were the size of a cent. As the receptionist did not speak any English we just binned them and gone on with it! Pool not in use even though it was ideal weather for a swim. Do not think hotel is worthy of 4 stars.
Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, very simple but stylist room and bathroom, short drive away from some lovely beaches, quiet and untouristy unlike many areas of spain. Was not informed that the advertised hotel pool was actually closed and is only open for a few months in the summer, hotel staff speak very little english, when paying at the end of the holiday the card machine would not accept any of our cards so had to drive to San Jose to get money out in order to pay, hotel in general a bit overpriced.
It is so remote if you want peace and quite. Great views all around you. Good food and very nice rooms. the directions to the hotel wre not very good at all. try google maps or tom tom and you end up 50 km away like we were. they need to make a big point that they are near san jose not almeria. no hard standing for motor cycles to park just soft gravel like the very long drive way so not very bike friendly.resturant staff spoke no english and no english menus. so bad in fact could not even understand 'beer' Take the trouble to find it though and you will be rewarded with fantastic views.
The rooms are nice, spacious and decorated with taste. The bed is very comfortable. The staff is not very friendly.
The hotel is in a quiet and secluded area, and it was very peaceful there. I loved it!
The location of the hotel is great for peace, relaxation, hiking...in the middle of the country, but close to the beach with beautiful views. We found some big bugs in our room. The walls were very thin and we could clearly hear the guests in the next room.
The hotel is very nice and the view is amazing. On't forget to book the beach view !!
excelent location in the middle of nature. Beautifull vews from your room and the sea at 15 min. walking. Silence !!!!!
There is no reception at the apartments and you have to get the keys from a hotel by the beach which is less than a 5 minute walk and pretty easy. The kitchen only had 2 electric hobs and wasn't well equipped which was okay for 2 nights but would have been a problem for longer. There were only twin beds instead of a double. Overall the apartment was adequate but a little tlc and attention to detail would have improved it. Biggest plus was the location - San Jose is lovely and the apartment was very near to everything.
It was very nice, interesting, place! We spend good time there. I'll recomend it to all!
it`s very picturesque place! there is pool from where you can see hills with cactuses and olive trees
nice and big houses located very well between a lot of green. the owners only speak Spanish
