The hotel is right on a busy road, while the windows would block the noise perfectly, the door of the room does not; these should be exchanged for other/heavier doors that would address this. We had room 23, which is one of the rooms the furthest out to the street and the noise and heat level may be higher there than in other spots of the hotel. No good restful sleep because of the noise.
A/C did not function properly, even after notifying the hotel staff. It only continued functioning manually with the emergency button, for which we had to manually open the actual A/C on the wall each time , we wanted to use it. The staff initially tried to fix it and was very kind and helpful; but it was never properly fixed and stayed this way for the rest of the duration. Not very convenient.
The bar does not offer fresh fruit juices (only bottled juices), this is a real shame; maybe this could be considered for the future?
The price / quality ratio does not quite work in our view. We paid EUR160/night for 5 nights (27 Aug - 1 September); and EUR90/night for 1 night (1-2 September). Taking account of the location, quality of rooms and general hotel, etc. EUR90-100/night would be feasible; all beyond is excessive. We do not make this assessment in view that the A/C did not work properly but as a factual assessment taking account of location of venue and quality of the venue compared to other hotels elsewhere, including in Tarifa. It is not close to town but 10-minute drive outside; it is not right on the beach but right on a busy street; the windows insulate the room well, the door does not. It is noisy at night. The rooms are nice, simple and clean but nothing spectacular. Majority of staff was very friendly, except for 1-2 exceptions.
Location is close to Valdevaqueros. The Restaurant (Arabic cuisine) at the hotel is excellent (and it's best kept secret). The room and bathroom facilities are simple but nice and clean.
