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.
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.
Golf location, quiet place, very good training and golf facilities.Stayed there two years ago and hope to return. No
Location-at the Golf course
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 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
the staff were super friendly
room was very clean and cool, confortable bed and amazing shower when we arrived we were given a set of keys that didnt work, i asked for another set of keys that also didnt work, the third ones were ok but we were asked to leave them at reception every time. also on the last night the window kept opening all night due to the wind, apart from this i couldnt really fault this hotel
Good location, clean tidy and quiet room, close to amenities, hassle free stay. No tea/coffee making facility in room
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Good location. Room 411 unpleasant view from window of peoples washing hanging from the balconies of their flats.
Beach nearby, easy access to everywhere, very helpful staff, good view from our room Never managed to connect to the internet, we didnt have a double bed but two beds pushed together
It was about a 7 minute walk to the beach. Very nice rooms, though a little small for 3 adults and a baby. Everything was new and clean. The hotel staff was very helpful. Great breakfast! The hotel is not close to the "touristy" parts of Cadiz. Not a whole lot of restaurants really close by. The hotel rooms are only meant for 2 people.
Convenient for the beach. Bathroom doors were made of tinted glass. You could see through them.
Good location. Smelly smokey rooms & lights in the corridors are very inadequate - it's to dark!
value for money, breakfast, rooms far from historical center
The room was a good size and the beds were very comfortable. The design of the foyer was odd. Instead of opening out into the hotel, it seemed to get smaller.
Reception staff were excellent on the day. Rooms looked tired and in need of refurbishment.
Wonderful location opposite beach with night street market in front of the hotel and choice of great restauants. Easy to get about with buses.
The location is great, right on the beach.
The convenience of the beach and eating establishments. Rooms are clean and bathroom is first class. Pillows could be more plump.
Very good location and friendly staff. You need to cross the street in order to get to the beach.
The location and facilities were very good. I also very much appreciated the bottle of wine and dessert being placed in my room on my birthday - my thanks to the management and staff Perhaps some of the staff could work on their friendliness - perhaps it is just the cultural diffrence (New Zealand and Spain) - very few of the staff ever smiled when being greeted or greeting us.
The location of the hotel, it is on the most beautiful beach. We visit the hotel regularly. N/A
the people , the comfort , the location , the view all is perfect dining room and terrace facilities needs to be updated .
Parking facilities. Convinient for beach, resturants and city centre
We were made welcome, given a very comfortable room with fantastic views over the beach. Breakfast was very good but the dining room seemed a bit canteen like.
Very helpful and informative young man on reception. Room clean and with good bathroom. Great location. Old traditional house that reflects original style etc.
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!!!!!!
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!
Small Hotel, personal service, beautiful old building, handy location
Excellent location - walking distance of everything- traditional hotel simply furnished but had everything we needed for a short stay.
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!
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.
Helpful staff and modern hotel
Central, tidy, clean, functional The computer couldn't be used until after 11am.
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.
Room wide and very clean Breakfast Some of the staff is not kind
very well located, and a parking next door a litle bit noisy
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!
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,
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Friendly staff and central location. Lots of good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance Can be a little noisy due to tiled floors
A well placed very clean hotel, with a lot of traditional Spanish charm. A neat and well laid out swimming pool area upon the roof with a good vista of views. Buffet breakfasts were of top quality, also the room service. Ideally situated next to the waterfront with frequent passenger ferries to and from Cadiz. Car parking in hotel basement. Good venue for tourist or business use. (booked in for 2 days second week in June 2007). Narrow and traffic busy one way streets surround hotel in this area. Can be very daunting until one gets the feel of the place.
very perfect environment, very comfortable with cheap price the location is not in cadiz, it's about 30minutes from cadiz by train.
The breakfast was very good for the price.
It was alright, not what I expected The room decor was awful, really old fashioned, the pool was pretty basic and the terrace was just too windy to relax.
Close to the center and very close to the boat to Cádiz. Nice staff, good breakfast. Parking was full but parking on the street was available and safe (and free). The nearest beach is 800m and it is not the most beautiful one. Other beaches are easy available by car.
close to the ship to Cadiz, swimming pool little parking inside
Everything! Excellent hotel,nice rooms,great location and it has a pool on the roof. Santa Maria is a buzzing place full of restaurants and bars. Parking is limited but you can leave a car on the street outside the hotel for free or on a car park opposite by the ferry terminal which I think was a euro a day.
I would recommend this hotel to any traveller. The hotel is in the center of the city but a bit far from the beach. Good value for the money. Parking available just in the hotel.
it was wery good placed
Cadizi gezmek icin tercih etmistik. Otel bir manastirla yan yana. Cok temiz ve guzel bir otel. Acik bufe kahvaltisi cok guzeldi. Memnun ayrildik. Otelin hemen altinda bulunan park yeri gece park yeri aramakla ugrastirmadi. Fiyat/hizmet orani cok yuksek bir oteldi.
Olağanüstü,muhteşem,anlatımda sözcükler yetmedi tarih,sanat,dekorasyon....böyle bir ortamda olmamıza aracılık ettiğiniz için size teşekkür ederiz...
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?)
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;-((
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.
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.
Staff were very friendly and location was brilliant Aircon was not v cold but it was ok
Place is good, near to beach, K for visiting Cadiz. Free car park
Good value for money.
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
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.
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).
Very conveniently located; comfortable rooms; staff very friendly and supportive
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.
All the staff were very helpfull and friendly
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.
noisey! rooms were not very sound proof and very noisey.
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.
Location, price, cleanliness, and friendly staff.
Recently renovated smallish room, very ok to sleep and to have a shower (no hairdryer). Basic good breakfast. During our stay very quiet (noisy group arrived just day before we left). Good quality/price, also in the restaurant.
Good clean rooms
Cleanliness and comfort were of a very high standard, very good value for the money ,location was peaceful Car parking was inadequate.
The small type bungalows and the staff were very helpful.
I booked this hotel due to rate and pool.I knew location from Cadiz was 8km but hotel had car park and included breakfast. It was one of the nicer hotels we stayed in Spain. Bus ride to Cadiz was less than 30mins. Would recommend to friends.
good food friendly & helpful staff bit remote rooms very small although very clean
Location. Excellent restaurant.
Thought the staff were great and the pool lovely (quiet mid september). The walls were a bit thin. Breakfast wasnt great so best sort out your own.
Close to the sea. Good place for relax. Not enough hot water to take shower for two persons. Too wet in the room as all the rooms are on the first floor. The windows can not be locked (all the rooms are on the first floor) - dangerouse. The roomcleaners start to work before we check-out (strange).
Very peaceful location but still within easy reach of town. Good food at reasonable prices. Well kept garden & swimming pool.
All of the staff were very helpful. Hotel was comfortable and food was very good Rather a long way from the old town. It took and hour each way to walk
The rooms and facilities including the different swimmingpools were very good. Also the location is perfect with only 1-2 minutes drive to a fantastic beach. They should have better wireless internet connection. We had to use a cable in the room. Only staff working in the reception spoke/understood english.
Relax and budget
We visited the hotel for my wifes 60th birthday - we could not have wished for a more perfect setting. The bedroom was large and very comfortable. The staff friendly and attentive and the gardens were magnificent, The food was excellent and good value for money. We will certainly stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who wants somewhere special.
Everything, it was an excellent hotel, with a huge and comfortable room. Real value for money. Excellent hotel stuff, especially the receptionist.
The hotel is a bit 'strange', in the beginning we felt like we were all alone, but then it seemed that there are also appartments with a very large pool. Rooms are spacious, but beds are hard. Large bathrooms. Nobody explained us anything, so we checked it out ourselves. Personnel is not really friendly, especially at breakfast. Airco was broken for three days and same period they asked us to shut windows during night because of fumidation of gardens. Strange timing. Hard beds.
peaceful/ good food/excellent service/good value no
vast room, very comfortable, with very good quality for money. services and staff of very good level just a little bit difficult to locate
Quiet and clean Staff was a mighty cold although helpful
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
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.
The staff provided excellent service and were always willing to help. Nice weather and great beaches
Apartment location & accessability to the swimming pool distance from main town
Very nice apartment. The heated swimming pool is fantastic.
layout & facilities could be a little cleaner
enviroment, flowers, garden, pool little expensive
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...
- good standing and nice design
Close to beach, helpful when I left bag behind, view, Charges for parking and wifi
cracking locatio on the beach close to restuarants and cheringuitos. nice pool and breakfast comprehensive not so easy to get to by road adn expensive parking
Cleaning of room daily was abit hit and miss eg: we had to reuse dirty glasses, toiletry products not replaced daily.
Nice location, comfortable rooms. bunch of crazy gipsy drunk men singing on the beach at 4:am!!!
Beach front location is excellent,though I did have to pay extra for beachfont rooms. lift from rooms to beach without going through lobby great facility. Lobby of the hotel is grubby especially the large sofa which needs cleaning. the whole hotel could do with a makeover. if it were not for the location the hotel would not rate highly and even with its good location I think it is overpriced
great location right beside a beautiful beach not all balconies get the sun
The location right on the soft sand beach and beautiful design of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would have preferred one double bed instead of two twin beds, but there were none available in non-smoking rooms.
The view from the room
Ideally situated for both the beach and for exploring the old town of Cadiz.
The view from of the beach was nice once we paid the 22 euros of extra. The welcome desk was rude. The initial room( without the extra 22 euros of a full front), was poor, we had a perfect view on a gray facade of a decrepit building. The hotel did not reply to our initial questions at provided on the booking website!
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
We didn't know that we had to make a reservation to get into the spa.
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.
made to feel at home ,and we where important to the staff no
Spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful especially at the breakfast. Difficult to find even with a GPS.
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"!
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.
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
Excellent attitude and very helpful staff. Very quiet relaxing atmosphere. Very spacious rooms.
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.
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,
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.
the most thing which i was wondered is silence and relax nothing
quiet location room was not vacuumed very well no balcony rooms overlooking harbour were better
Wonderful the whole stay! Nothing
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).
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.
Very nice hotel Good location Parking possibility
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).
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!
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
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
the position of the hotel in relation to the attractions of the city we booked no smoking rooms and were put into smoking rooms one of which could best be described as an ashtray! Staff showed little interest in solving the problem.
wonderful location, close to bus station and rental car agency as well as the heart of the old city
Location, reception areas English translation of menu
The best thing about this hotel is the spa. The location is also terrific as it's close to the train station and central for shopping and sightseeing. Also, make sure that you go up to the roof as the view is terrific (and then you won't need to make the climb to the top of any of the towers in town!). The decor of the hotel was not what I would consider to be a 4-star standard; the description says that it's a "brand new hotel" but I don't see how this is possible - everything looked very worn-out. Also, you have to pay extra to use the spa, which was worth it, but then they also have a bunch of other charges on top of the extra charge - such as, you have to wear flip flops in the spa and if you don't have any, you have to buy some from them. They also charge extra for towels in the spa, which seems a bit petty - we used the ones from our rooms rather than pay an extra 1.50 euros each, but then had no dry towels to use in our room.
comfortable the cleaning woman didn't change used glasses of our room so we had to wash them to use by ourselves.
the situation, and the brasserie style cafe
We were treated extremely well by the staff and when they realised we were visiting from NZ showed additional positive interest in our well being.
Nice and central but no real buzz in the surrounding area as with our hotel in Seville. instructions on how to find it. Totally incomprehensible. Took nearly 45 minutes to find it. When rung hotel staff no real help. Access to hotel garage diabolical
