The included breakfast was fantastic. The location was great and the staff very friendly with good suggestions of places to go and where to eat. It was a very comfortable and great place to stay.
Location Breakfast Staff Cleanliness
Some of the staff were excellent, and on reporting the no hot water situation they said it would be looked into.
- The hot water situation was never fixed, and on check-out no discount was offered for that. I requested one, but was denied. I wasn't impressed at all by that approach. - Standard twin room was very basic, a little too basic for the price.
Excellent breakfast Vera friendly staff Nice terrace
Friendly staff Good location for all amenities
Advertised as having restaurant and bar but not available after September.
Convenient location, helpful staff, good breakfasts.
Bed was a bit hard.
Friendly staff all aspects of the hotel were good and would definitely stay there again.
It would have been good if the bar had been open during our stay.
A quiet location near the beach and resort centre. The staff were always helpful and unobtrusive
The friendly no fuss hospitality and the excellent breakfast. The exceptionally convenient situation giving the opportunity to enjoy San Jose without the need for a car.
As one needs a car to visit other villages and playas some designated parking would be helpful.As we are a bit older than when we first stayed with you a lift would be highly advantageous!! Or maybe a ground floor bedroom
Breakfast was very nice. Good coffee and variety of food. Room was small but comfy. Fairly clean. Parking was easy. Good location, very close to the main beach.
Wifi wasn't working well in the room.
Location Clean Good bathrooms
Very friendly staff, nice big room, lovely breakfast
A little noisy. with breakfast they could restock the tortilla
excellent place, clean room, convenient location. friendly staff, nice breakfast. recommended!
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly despite us speaking no Spanish. The room was clean and comfortable and had a useful safe box, and given the temperature, air conditioning and a fridge. The balcony had a wonderful view. Breakfast was excellent. We will certainly be back!
Good location on a side street, close to everything, excellent staff, good breakfast buffet
Very clean Good breakfast Friendly and helpful staff Quiet hotel slept very well
No garden or pool
Location was fine, center and beach within walking distance. Staff very kind and helpfull.
Bed was a bit hard for me.
Characterful hostel, with friendly staff, well located in the centre of the town and just a short walk to bars and restaurants
The Spanish decor and stylish interior. Everywhere was very clean and the staff (particularly the senora who served breakfast), couldn't do enough for you. Would definitely return.
Nothing really but the beds were rather hard.
Great location, very laid back. Not luxury, but relaxed, clean, and convenient. Away from the hustle and bustle of the center, but a nice stroll up the beach for whatever you want.
Four star quality at a two star price. The best hostal we have ever stayed at - friendly and helpful staff, very nice building with high quality decorations and furnishing and excellent breakfasts.
this place is superb value
extreme elasticity with the booking, I was able to check out at 7 pm because no one was going to sleep there in the following night. Also for breakfast, extreme flexibility with schedules. Brilliant and strategic location. Typical and good looking interior design
very friendly staff, excellent location, excellent price to quality ratio. I highly recommend it!! even had free parking across the street!
The friendly hardworking staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and we cannot praise them enough. By UK standards this is certainly more than a hostal. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable and well located in a quiet street just a few yards from the centre of San José and we had no problem parking on the street right outside the hotel. It is obvious that great care has been taken to maintain El Santuario to the highest standard with well kept gardens and terraces and tasteful decoration and furnishing throughout. We were on the second floor and had a view across the village to the sea. On arrival Tatyana explained that there wasn't a lift and if we were unhappy at being on the second floor we could move to another room, however we were perfectly happy where we were. The room and bathroom were spacious with a comfortable bed, TV, a small fridge and plenty of hot water. Wifi reception was good and free. There is a large, communal lounge just off the reception area if you want to chill in a comfy chair or sofa, watch the large screen TV or use the PC. For breakfast there was fresh bread and croissants (which can be toasted), cereals, jams, honey, tomato and oil, a selection of cold meats and cheese, freshly fried eggs on request, yogurt, fresh fruit, magdalenas, tea, coffee and juice...and also delicious arroz con leche on some mornings. We were there out of season so obviously it was quiet but there were still sufficient shops, bar, cafes and restaurants open and San José makes an excellent base from which to explore Cabo de Gata-Nijar and to do some hiking and cycling. We have no hesitation in recomending El Santuario de San José and it was certainly excellent value for money; when walking around the village we saw one or two 4 star hotels but we could not imagine what more they might offer which would make them better than El Santuario and undoubtedly we would love to return.
There was nothing that we did not like.
