    Nice located right next to the lighthouse with typical Andalusian style.

    We arrived late and there was nobody, so we had to call someone who came within a few minutes to chek us in. Note that the house is not very soundproof so you will recognize some sounds when you got a light sleep.

    The best shower we ever had in a hotel! It was also superclean. On our first day we unfortunately broke the key for our room, but that was no problem and the next day we immediately got a new one. We really liked our room and you are at the lighthouse and at the beach within minutes. There are also some nice restaurants around the area. We had a balcony with our room and it was nice to have breakfast (self-arranged) there. If you're unlucky with the weather the hostal provides umbrellas that you can lend.

    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - probably overall the best place I stayed in Spain. Even went out of their way to find gluten-free bread for breakfast! I honestly don't know how the stay could have been better - other than having the time to stay longer.

    Very good. Lovely little hostel. Good value for money and a great location.

    Our room was not cleaned, nor the bed made, on one day. There was an apology, and a suggestion that we had left the do not disturb sign out (we hadn't) but no offer to clean the room.

    Simple self serve breakfast (other than a large toasted bread roll brought to the table). We needed to be on time to get the best selection and things did run out, including the coffee which we had to ask for. But overall pretty good.

    This beautiful hostal was perfectly placed for both nearby beaches and visits to Jerez, Sanlucar and El Puerto de Santa Maria with their great bodegas. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the shower room superb. The fridge was a splendid bonus! Free street parking nearby presented no problems.

    There was some background buzzing noise that would start from time to time through the night from somewhere in the building, possibly somebody else's air-con unit or a shower pump. Mind you, I am used to dead silence where I live, others might not notice it.

    This lovely, characterful, little Hostal is in a fantastic location, close to the seafront and only a few minutes walk from the centre of town and yet on what seemed to be a quiet road. We found the owner Lin and all the other staff very helpful and friendly - take Lin's advice on where to eat, you won't be disappointed! Everywhere was kept very clean. We had a room right at the top which had it's own very spacious balcony with views to the sea - lovely! The bedroom was simply furnished and rather dated but comfortable and the bathroom/toilet looked all pretty new with a very nice shower. We visited at the end of March, and even during the Easter holiday we always found a car parking space on the road very close by, however whether that would be the same in high season I don't know.

    Lovely hostal in a great location. Couple minutes walk to Playa de la Regla, beautiful. Only a short walk into the town. Lil, the owner was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean and spacious. Great wi-fi so the kids were happy!
