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.
Staff, facilities very good, could not be faulted. Nothing
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.
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.
Location-at the Golf course
the food and golf course
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.
The people were welcoming, answered questions and gave good tips on restaurants and driving directions. The breakfast was varied and substantial. Our room was big with a little sitting room. The building is from the 16th Century. Beautiful!
The town El Rocio is like taken out of a Wild West movie, it has to be seen to be believed. If going to Donana don't miss El Rocio! Casa del Regidor was also a real surprise, classy, beautifully decorated rooms and bathrooms and in the centre of town. A real treat!
Good location if traveling by train to other places. My concern is walking back at night because of the location--not bad but people not familiar with the area should be careful at night. More could be done on the parking situation.
Excellent location - walking distance of everything- traditional hotel simply furnished but had everything we needed for a short stay.
Very helpful and informative young man on reception. Room clean and with good bathroom. Great location. Old traditional house that reflects original style etc.
Helpful staff and modern hotel
Central, tidy, clean, functional The computer couldn't be used until after 11am.
Small Hotel, personal service, beautiful old building, handy location
The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I feel that this hotel is very good value for money and would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives. The only slight drawback is the lack of car parking facilities in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, but in my opinion this is outweighed by the lovely building and helpful staff. I will definitely use this hotel again.
The owners are delightfull and can't do enough to help. The hotel is a lovely old building in the centre of town. The advertised parking is not at the hotel but 2 streets away, we had problems finding the hotel because the road that it was situated in was closed to traffic, only for the 3 days we were staying!!!!!!
Nothing wrong with this hotel Stuff was not friendly, the hotel looks kind of old, 10 euros per day parking for motorbike was too much,
very well located, and a parking next door a litle bit noisy
The service, the professionalism and the smile of the staff. They were very helpful and welcoming. we just checked the breakfast at the hotel and we found it poor in variety. we didn't have any there.
Room wide and very clean Breakfast Some of the staff is not kind
Rooms were lovely and was nice to arrive to a smiling face. Great location in regards to train\bus staion, and ferry, and restaurant and bars. The staff were effecient. The spa bath couldve been cleaned better. Breakfast was included in our price which was good because although it was not bad it was not exceptional and probably wouldnt have spent alot of money on it.
We enjoyed our brief stay and mostly were keen to be near the port for the cadiz ferry - the hotel met this criteria for us. no
The hotel is conveniently located and very pleasant. Our room was well appointed and completely comfortable. There were several amenities that bumped the hotel into a significantly better than average experience. My only complaint is that it was impossible to take a shower without covering the bathroom floor with water. The half-door on the shower is ill-conceived and the seal at the bottom ineffective. Otherwise, we had a very good experience at Los Cantaros.
Good, central location. Anonymity if you wanted it. Staff helpful. Other residents slam doors late at night and voices/plumbing can be hgeard from adjoining rooms. but this is par for the course in Spain.
The location is quite good to walk around the city. Too expensive for the quality of services. The room was full of sand and the staff took lots of time to clean it properly. There is no reason to pay so much for so bad service. breakfast was really really bad. And the prices rise on high season and it seem that the service quality decrease! Don't understand how is possible to charge 140 euros/nigh and have a so bad service! I don't recommend to stay on this hotel!
Friendly staff and central location. Lots of good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance Can be a little noisy due to tiled floors
The hotel staff was very kind and helpful
reception, helpful staff, wifi cafe bar only open mornings
Only stayed one night but it was convenient, comfortable and clean - and the receptionist spotted it was my birthday and wished my happy birthday!
Proximity to beach - whilst easy to get to the old town via bus. Decent breakfast included Surrounding area is a bit grubby.
There is linked car parking space within 100 metres and buses pass directly in front of the hotel heading for the city centre. Like many continental hotels there was no kettle in the room. As a Brit I would really appreciate that facility.
friendly staff and hotel was clean, well maintained and cosy. No choice for breakfast. Coffee not hot and hotel was in location surrounded with shops but few restaurants and bars near to hotel
The Hotel was very well situated the staff particularly at reception were very good and helpful a bit on the pricey side but other than that very good
Stayed for a business trip. Basic facilities, nothing fabcy but all that you need for business trip. Clean, close to the beach and relatively cheap when I booked. They gave me a room looking at the back so no nice view but quiet. Most of the staff could hardly speak english. No wifi in my room, had to go to the lounge to check my emails. On the website on booking.com was saying "air shuttle" but this refers to the public bus service (which takes almost 2 h for a 30 min drive), not a hotel service!
The orange juice and nice people. The breakfeast: the bread wasn't good. The room's view.
den fine restaureringen og den gameldagse stilen nei
Bra beliggenhet. Pene rom. Restauranten hadde forferdelig dårlig service. Maten var kald etter å ha ventet på oss lenge. Etter 1 og en halv time gikk vi uten å ha spist.
Place is good, near to beach, K for visiting Cadiz. Free car park
maybe because of the disco next door one had to endure a lot of noise during the night front office was not able to charge my Amex card (on purpose?)
The location and view were outystanding, there was a very warm welcome all our requests were met on the spot. It was all we expected
the staff were very friendly and helpful and the sea view was fantastic
Good value for money.
it is a 4 star hotel at the beach quite empty late in october. The beach is very clean and save even for little kids. Only 5 km from the center of Puerto Santa Maria and about 20 km from Jerez (20€ by taxi really worth to visit with its huge farmers markets !!!) swimming pool was closed like in all other hotels in October;-((
Staff were very friendly and location was brilliant Aircon was not v cold but it was ok
It´s layed practically at the beach, close to the busy souvenir and bars/restaurants (during season!) street, nice big pool and garden, parking lot (plenty of space off season), dont know about season time though! Very friendly, lovely people, good food. Getting there through the town.... despite navigator! Stick to the bigger streets and dont let your navi get you through the lovely but mostly one way streets in the city center... you´ll find yourself circling a lot (nothing to do with hotel though). Hotel itself was busy even in off season. We liked it.
Very nice view to the see, comfortable room. Restaurant only served some menu for dinner; there was no a la cart choice to have dinner.
Very conveniently located; comfortable rooms; staff very friendly and supportive
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).
noisey! rooms were not very sound proof and very noisey.
Location, price, cleanliness, and friendly staff.
All the staff were very helpfull and friendly
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 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.
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.
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 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.
Hotellet lå i rolige omgivelser. Rommet var pent og personalet var hyggelig. Var alt i alt godt fornøyd med oppholdet på dette hotellet.
Enkelt hotell, rent og pent til en rimelig penge. Skiltet på disken i resepsjonen var på dårlig engelsk. Forslag til ny tekst: Please, do not forget to leave your key-card here. Oppvask i frokostrommet bør foregå etter at gjestene har spist ferdig, damen som vasket opp bråket forferdelig når hun vasket opp for hånd. Frokosten var altfor enkel, det var for lite mat for oss.
The staff provided excellent service and were always willing to help. Nice weather and great beaches
layout & facilities could be a little cleaner
- good standing and nice design
We liked the layout of the apartment, the quietness and the area. We did not like having to pay 6 euros for the use of the indoor pool, in view of the price of the apartment. Some of the features in the apartment were old (fridge) or broken (safe) and had not been fixed/replaced.
Location and quietness, but most staff not to co-operative except two ladies trying to assist really. service has room for improvement.no internet connection in public place.access to spa only by extra payments. sun chairs packed away in evening but not easily accessible in the morning
Spatious rooms. The SPA is good but could be better. The included buffet breakfast was very good Many drawbacks here. Before going you should really ask yourself if there is a real need for going far from everything else and spend all this money. The apartments are big, but very poor refined. The hotel staff (low season?) is slow (30-40 min for a checkin/checkout) and poorly trained. The swimming pool is little but if you want to take a sunbath, be sure to have your spray for flies and mosquitos. Check carefully the door handles as you could be trapped in your bath for hours...
enviroment, flowers, garden, pool little expensive
Apartment location & accessability to the swimming pool distance from main town
Quiet and clean Staff was a mighty cold although helpful
Very nice apartment. The heated swimming pool is fantastic.
Very impressed by the interior, good information from the reception, good rooms, View from the balkon good be better, good breakfast.Easy acces to main roads. View from the balkon good be better,
Very helpful staff, room design. Not really a dislike, but travellers should be made aware that English is not spoken by staff at this hotel. The staff made every effort to assist and we got by with a little "spanglish"!
Friendly staff No facilities for making tea or coffee in the room. Although describded as an apartment hotel many rooms are no equiped as apartments. The hotel is nearly impossoble to find
made to feel at home ,and we where important to the staff no
The quiet residential area where the hotel's situated, very close to the beach and the promenade. Quite a stroll away from the centre and difficult to access if one doesn't have a car.
Spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful especially at the breakfast. Difficult to find even with a GPS.
interesting building design very helpful,kind, pleasant staff.the hotel was exceptionally clean. no
Clean hotel, lovely staff, nice sized bedrooms, relaxing pool area and great location -very close to the beach.
Excellent attitude and very helpful staff. Very quiet relaxing atmosphere. Very spacious rooms.
The staff were extremely friendly and very accomodating. We were travelling with two small children and it was an ideal hotel for us with plenty of space in the bedroom, with a fridge and hob also in the room. A very enjoyable stay.
The room was great and the staff was helpful. Modern and clean and comfortable. Oddly, it seems like the prices were so reasonable for such a room because it's in some half finished development that was hit by the recession and simply never recovered. The hotel is great, and the surrounding area is pleasant and safe, it's just bizarre because it's a lot of rich people who clearly invested in this area then got rocked by the recession, so now all the rich people hang out next to half finished houses and their yachts (the hotel is literally a yacht club as well).
quiet location room was not vacuumed very well no balcony rooms overlooking harbour were better
Great room with a huge balcony. In its class this must be about the largest room we have had as well. Easy to walk to the beach and a few local bars. We used it as stop over on the way to Portugal from Spain. Nothing worth mentioning.
the most thing which i was wondered is silence and relax nothing
Wonderful the whole stay! Nothing
The lady at the reception was absolutely charming. Very spacious room with 2 double beds and nice, comfortable bathroom. Huge terrace which overlooked the harbour. You could nearly touch the boats. We regretted to be able to stay only one night. We shall certainly go back. Although the room had been cleaned properly, the carpets and the sofa in the room look a bit "tired".
The room was spaceous and the terras was very large. Also the location of the hotel at the marina was very good. Even for a new hotel there was already a lot of damage to various items. Although a lot of facilites were mentioned at the hotel, hardly any facility was open and the staff was ok but not overly friendly.
Very nice hotel Good location Parking possibility
Very friendly and helpful bar/restaurant staff. Cheap room rates. Clean rooms. Awful bathroom facilities. Very thin walls, so pretty noisy. No natural light in the room. Couldn't get over to the other side of my room without climbing over the bed!
the bed, the lobby poor insulation, the buzzing noise from the main and other noise from various sources, like flushing, human activity etc. Breakfast was abysmal.
Very good restaurant with food at very reasonable prices.
The room was comfortable and well air conditioned. When I got into my room, workmen were drilling next door for a good half hour. This continued a couple of days later. The hotel is a five-minute walk from the beach, but it's always too windy to go there and so there are hardly any people on the beach...so the hotel isn't what I expected. When I tried to book an extra night, the reception staff told me to use booking.com again...so I went elsewhere. The hotel is a good 45-minute walk from the main town centre of Puerta de Santa Maria and there are prostitutes touting for trade on that walk.
The silence and the surroundings
It had a nice garden with a pool, and location was good - it was located in a residential area, so parking was easy, and the beach was just 15 minutes walk. The staff did not speak much English, and both quality and variety of the breakfast were poor, even for a two-star hotel. Besides, the isolation of the rooms was not good, we could here our neighbors very clearly (even though they were really not loud).
Great staff, very clean, very close to the beach, great value! It would have been nice to have a bigger variety at breakfast, but I really can't complain since it was free.
We just stay for one night no
Hotellets plassering og personalet. mykere senger, fri inngang til for hotellets gjester.
Tigjengelighet til gamlebyen. Litt vanskelig å finne.
Fin beliggenhet i forhold til resten av byen. Fine rom og god standard. Hadde en fantastisk tur! Nice hotel and good standard. Had a great week at the hotel. The hotel was close to the shoppingarea. Nei, fant ingen ting å være misfornøyd med. Nothing to report.
Ligger bra til i gamlebyen. Bassenget på taket er ikke av god kvalitet. Var trengt, og de kunne med letthet ha utnyttet potensialet mye bedre. Som generelt i spania er ikke dette i vår standard et 4 stjernes hotell.
Rent, Effektiv, Sentralt Kart for kjøring til hotellet, mye enveiskjøringer
