The location is fabulous, dockside with two terraces overlooking a marina. But these are public areas that attract many people and the Spanish do like to drink, eat, sing and carry on until the wee small hours....like 3,30am!
We were given a room numbered 0, which we assumed for some reason did not exist!
The 2mx3m bathroom was so small I had to stoop and continually hit my head on the beam that runs through it.
No air conditioning so it was either close the double glazed window or endure the really intrusive noise from the hotel bar/alfresco areas and the aromas from the kitchen as the exhaust fan is directly below.
While we enjoyed the ambience, after two days we were exhausted from lack of sleep.
If you are considering this place, make sure you are not in the non-existent Room 0; the other rooms looked way superior and there was no suggestion we were going to get such second rate accommodation, listed like this: "Double or Twin Room
This room offers satellite TV, free WiFi, heating and a private bathroom with a hairdryer. Some rooms have views of the estuary."
Maybe my mistake was requesting a "quiet" room ;-).
Our view was certainly not of the estuary, but a narrow laneway with a view into the adjoining equally noisy hotel kitchen.
The private parking, about 200m away, was good, but cost not the quoted 8Euro but 10. Without taking that option parking would have been a daily drama.
To sum up, we have a love-hate feeling about El Puerto. We would certainly return to drink beer and eat tapas on the terraces.
