    Beautiful sunsets in matalascañas
    • Leisure trip

    • Standard Twin Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The breakfast was a complete rip off. I stupidly didn't ask how much it would cost and we ended up paying something like 30 euros for a couple of not very good coffees, some old industrial snack and toast. The selection of cereals on offer was poor. Go to any bar in town and avoid it!

    Room fairly spacious and pretty, with traditional decor. The swimming pool is lovely ad surrounded by greenery. Seems like the bottom flats my be even a nicer than our room, but i don't know for sure. Matalascañas is not a pretty town, but there are a couple of alright restaurants and a long long beach 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The sun setting on the sea is truly spectacular.

    No lifts (very bad if you have heavy bags) and very bad acoustic isolation between rooms.

    Very good family room and good location, near the beach (aprox. 400m) and shopping/restaurant area. In general, it's a good summer hotel.

    Prices are way too high in all town, including the hotel.

    The hotel has great location 5 minutes walk from the beach and is easy to find when driving by car. Donana guided tours are easy to book right at hotel's reception.

    Room had lots of space.
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller

    This is not a great place and certainly no where near as good as the reviews! There was no friendly atmosphere at reception when I entered the place and my room was fairly cold and smelt like it hadn’t been aired for a while. Shame as the shutter doors opened on to a nice balcony with flowers everywhere. The place lacks character and charm and the rest of the clinical town of Matalascanas doesn’t help the atmosphere either. Unfortunately despite the pleasant persona the Landlady tries to portray, you soon start to realise you are essentially just another financial unit to her! Hotel fees collected nice and sharp at the beginning of the stay. Most places I stayed in the Seville area offered many delights at breakfast, fresh fruit, fresh bread and lots of it. This was a limited breakfast and more expensive than the rest. When I asked for some bread and ham it was like an extra and she charged me 2 Euros! Unbelievable. Not a lot of cash but it was the mean nature of it all that came across. The landlady seemed to sit in her little office most of the day. It wasn't that busy so not sure what she was doing?! Maybe counting up her Euros! I wouldn’t stay again! As I moved on in my travels this place left me with a cold disillusioned feeling…possibly the Donana blues!

    Room had lots of space. Water for sink/shower was nice and hot though it took an age to run to get hot. Made me think the landlady was siphoning hot water from a neighbour’s house at the bottom of the road! Room had a fridge which was convenient.

    It was a perfect trip!

    This was a beautifully maintained and charming property that gave us the feeling that we were staying in a secret garden. Private entry to rooms, each with lovely private terrace and patio furnature. The owner lights lanterns on each terrace at night - lovely and romantic ambiance. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach, framed by a stunning sand dune forest, and extending into National Park. Dunes filled with frogs, neat looking beetles, and beautiful flowers. Amazing small town charm and delicious food everywhere.
