Location-at the Golf course
Golf location, quiet place, very good training and golf facilities.Stayed there two years ago and hope to return. No
Good price/quality relationship People should have place to park the car as the parking (although exists) is not working. With the current process to manage this problem, guests are forced to carry the luggage for a few hundred feets to reach the hotel... Unnecessary as there is a underground space that could be used.
the food and golf course
The sea and beaches and nice surroundings (mostly due to the golf courses). After the classy atmosphere and excellent service of the Barcelo in Malaga, this hotel was somewhat of a dissapointment. It looked cheap, the service was very slow or non-existent (e.g. waiting more than 30 min for a simple sandwich) while it was the most expensive booking of our entire trip. Restaurant only has buffet menu.
Staff, facilities very good, could not be faulted. Nothing
Almost nothing The hotel is built of 5 different buildings, far from each other, especialy in very rainy day as we had. We came to enjoy the spa, it was 500m away and it was so full of local people that we couldn´t entre. They shouldn't define the hotel as spa hotel but as an hotel who exidently has a near by spa which you have to reserve your entrance weeks earlier.
The hotel was very nice and the staff were very helpful. Especialy when I found, what looked like a baby silverfish in the bed. The staff had the bed chnged immediately.The buffet breakfast was a plus also as there are no resturants readily available in the local area. Also during the winter season, they did not chatge for parking.
the staff were super friendly
Convenient for the beach. Bathroom doors were made of tinted glass. You could see through them.
Beach nearby, easy access to everywhere, very helpful staff, good view from our room Never managed to connect to the internet, we didnt have a double bed but two beds pushed together
The room was a good size and the beds were very comfortable. The design of the foyer was odd. Instead of opening out into the hotel, it seemed to get smaller.
Good location. Smelly smokey rooms & lights in the corridors are very inadequate - it's to dark!
It was about a 7 minute walk to the beach. Very nice rooms, though a little small for 3 adults and a baby. Everything was new and clean. The hotel staff was very helpful. Great breakfast! The hotel is not close to the "touristy" parts of Cadiz. Not a whole lot of restaurants really close by. The hotel rooms are only meant for 2 people.
Good location, clean tidy and quiet room, close to amenities, hassle free stay. No tea/coffee making facility in room
value for money, breakfast, rooms far from historical center
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Good location. Room 411 unpleasant view from window of peoples washing hanging from the balconies of their flats.
room was very clean and cool, confortable bed and amazing shower when we arrived we were given a set of keys that didnt work, i asked for another set of keys that also didnt work, the third ones were ok but we were asked to leave them at reception every time. also on the last night the window kept opening all night due to the wind, apart from this i couldnt really fault this hotel
Parking facilities. Convinient for beach, resturants and city centre
The location is great, right on the beach.
Wonderful location opposite beach with night street market in front of the hotel and choice of great restauants. Easy to get about with buses.
The location of the hotel, it is on the most beautiful beach. We visit the hotel regularly. N/A
the people , the comfort , the location , the view all is perfect dining room and terrace facilities needs to be updated .
Very good location and friendly staff. You need to cross the street in order to get to the beach.
The convenience of the beach and eating establishments. Rooms are clean and bathroom is first class. Pillows could be more plump.
Reception staff were excellent on the day. Rooms looked tired and in need of refurbishment.
We were made welcome, given a very comfortable room with fantastic views over the beach. Breakfast was very good but the dining room seemed a bit canteen like.
The location and facilities were very good. I also very much appreciated the bottle of wine and dessert being placed in my room on my birthday - my thanks to the management and staff Perhaps some of the staff could work on their friendliness - perhaps it is just the cultural diffrence (New Zealand and Spain) - very few of the staff ever smiled when being greeted or greeting us.
The owners are delightfull and can't do enough to help. The hotel is a lovely old building in the centre of town. The advertised parking is not at the hotel but 2 streets away, we had problems finding the hotel because the road that it was situated in was closed to traffic, only for the 3 days we were staying!!!!!!
Central, tidy, clean, functional The computer couldn't be used until after 11am.
Small Hotel, personal service, beautiful old building, handy location
The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I feel that this hotel is very good value for money and would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives. The only slight drawback is the lack of car parking facilities in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, but in my opinion this is outweighed by the lovely building and helpful staff. I will definitely use this hotel again.
Excellent location - walking distance of everything- traditional hotel simply furnished but had everything we needed for a short stay.
The people were welcoming, answered questions and gave good tips on restaurants and driving directions. The breakfast was varied and substantial. Our room was big with a little sitting room. The building is from the 16th Century. Beautiful!
Very helpful and informative young man on reception. Room clean and with good bathroom. Great location. Old traditional house that reflects original style etc.
Helpful staff and modern hotel
Good location if traveling by train to other places. My concern is walking back at night because of the location--not bad but people not familiar with the area should be careful at night. More could be done on the parking situation.
The town El Rocio is like taken out of a Wild West movie, it has to be seen to be believed. If going to Donana don't miss El Rocio! Casa del Regidor was also a real surprise, classy, beautifully decorated rooms and bathrooms and in the centre of town. A real treat!
We enjoyed our brief stay and mostly were keen to be near the port for the cadiz ferry - the hotel met this criteria for us. no
The service, the professionalism and the smile of the staff. They were very helpful and welcoming. we just checked the breakfast at the hotel and we found it poor in variety. we didn't have any there.
Room wide and very clean Breakfast Some of the staff is not kind
The hotel is conveniently located and very pleasant. Our room was well appointed and completely comfortable. There were several amenities that bumped the hotel into a significantly better than average experience. My only complaint is that it was impossible to take a shower without covering the bathroom floor with water. The half-door on the shower is ill-conceived and the seal at the bottom ineffective. Otherwise, we had a very good experience at Los Cantaros.
Friendly staff and central location. Lots of good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance Can be a little noisy due to tiled floors
Good, central location. Anonymity if you wanted it. Staff helpful. Other residents slam doors late at night and voices/plumbing can be hgeard from adjoining rooms. but this is par for the course in Spain.
The location is quite good to walk around the city. Too expensive for the quality of services. The room was full of sand and the staff took lots of time to clean it properly. There is no reason to pay so much for so bad service. breakfast was really really bad. And the prices rise on high season and it seem that the service quality decrease! Don't understand how is possible to charge 140 euros/nigh and have a so bad service! I don't recommend to stay on this hotel!
Rooms were lovely and was nice to arrive to a smiling face. Great location in regards to train\bus staion, and ferry, and restaurant and bars. The staff were effecient. The spa bath couldve been cleaned better. Breakfast was included in our price which was good because although it was not bad it was not exceptional and probably wouldnt have spent alot of money on it.
Nothing wrong with this hotel Stuff was not friendly, the hotel looks kind of old, 10 euros per day parking for motorbike was too much,
very well located, and a parking next door a litle bit noisy
friendly staff and hotel was clean, well maintained and cosy. No choice for breakfast. Coffee not hot and hotel was in location surrounded with shops but few restaurants and bars near to hotel
Proximity to beach - whilst easy to get to the old town via bus. Decent breakfast included Surrounding area is a bit grubby.
There is linked car parking space within 100 metres and buses pass directly in front of the hotel heading for the city centre. Like many continental hotels there was no kettle in the room. As a Brit I would really appreciate that facility.
Stayed for a business trip. Basic facilities, nothing fabcy but all that you need for business trip. Clean, close to the beach and relatively cheap when I booked. They gave me a room looking at the back so no nice view but quiet. Most of the staff could hardly speak english. No wifi in my room, had to go to the lounge to check my emails. On the website on booking.com was saying "air shuttle" but this refers to the public bus service (which takes almost 2 h for a 30 min drive), not a hotel service!
The Hotel was very well situated the staff particularly at reception were very good and helpful a bit on the pricey side but other than that very good
The orange juice and nice people. The breakfeast: the bread wasn't good. The room's view.
reception, helpful staff, wifi cafe bar only open mornings
Only stayed one night but it was convenient, comfortable and clean - and the receptionist spotted it was my birthday and wished my happy birthday!
The hotel staff was very kind and helpful
A well placed very clean hotel, with a lot of traditional Spanish charm. A neat and well laid out swimming pool area upon the roof with a good vista of views. Buffet breakfasts were of top quality, also the room service. Ideally situated next to the waterfront with frequent passenger ferries to and from Cadiz. Car parking in hotel basement. Good venue for tourist or business use. (booked in for 2 days second week in June 2007). Narrow and traffic busy one way streets surround hotel in this area. Can be very daunting until one gets the feel of the place.
It was alright, not what I expected The room decor was awful, really old fashioned, the pool was pretty basic and the terrace was just too windy to relax.
Close to the center and very close to the boat to Cádiz. Nice staff, good breakfast. Parking was full but parking on the street was available and safe (and free). The nearest beach is 800m and it is not the most beautiful one. Other beaches are easy available by car.
I would recommend this hotel to any traveller. The hotel is in the center of the city but a bit far from the beach. Good value for the money. Parking available just in the hotel.
close to the ship to Cadiz, swimming pool little parking inside
it was wery good placed
The breakfast was very good for the price.
Everything! Excellent hotel,nice rooms,great location and it has a pool on the roof. Santa Maria is a buzzing place full of restaurants and bars. Parking is limited but you can leave a car on the street outside the hotel for free or on a car park opposite by the ferry terminal which I think was a euro a day.
very perfect environment, very comfortable with cheap price the location is not in cadiz, it's about 30minutes from cadiz by train.
Being an old monastery, the hotel was very charming with old paintings and antiques and curios.
reception desk staff very helpfull breakfast room staff (with the exception of 1 woman) were rude and unhelpful, could not even get a cup of coffee, reception gave us partial refund when my husband complained at check out
a great house with history, spacious room, pool in the garden. the room was not quiet at all, the street nearby, yelling people on the other side of the street in the building right next too. The promised "king-size" bed was a queen size... in the best case... not even this. our room was not cleaned by the stuff in the morning as we wished to stay private, after we left the hotel no one tryed to clean it or to change the towels
Historical building with good facilities we enjoyed our two days stay
General ambience of foyer and reception areas, also pool very good. Staff really nice and helpful too. Rooms were not four star standard. Also it was at the upper end of trhe scale in terms of rate.
A fabulous building with so much of interest and beauty and very friendly and helpful staff location wasn't the best
The hotel was extremely relaxing and comfortable and well up to the standard of these type of Spanish hotels i.e. Paradors, converted castles etc,many of which we have stayed in over a long period of years. Nothing really. Just difficult to find especially as given directions(coming by car) were incorrect.
Amazing old monastery building - like staying in a museum! The pool closed the day we got there with no warning, and we had to beg the staff just to let us sit in the sun next to it (seeming as the solarium was closed too). Apparently the problem was it 'winter' but it was also 25 degrees plus!
the central location ------- good breakfast
Beautiful building, centrally placed.
The room was old, with dated fixtures and furniture. The room was also quite hot, and it never really cooled down during our stay in early June. The hotel does a substantial business in wedding receptions, and they allow loud music to be played late into the night. The kitchens sit roughly in the very middle of the hotel, and they are not well ventilated - the entire first floor of rooms smells of frying food every night. Finally, the staff was not particularly helpful. For example, they refused to reconfirm our international departure flight for us; they told us that they could only telephone the airport and not the carrier.
Place is good, near to beach, K for visiting Cadiz. Free car park
the staff were very friendly and helpful and the sea view was fantastic
The location and view were outystanding, there was a very warm welcome all our requests were met on the spot. It was all we expected
it is a 4 star hotel at the beach quite empty late in october. The beach is very clean and save even for little kids. Only 5 km from the center of Puerto Santa Maria and about 20 km from Jerez (20€ by taxi really worth to visit with its huge farmers markets !!!) swimming pool was closed like in all other hotels in October;-((
It´s layed practically at the beach, close to the busy souvenir and bars/restaurants (during season!) street, nice big pool and garden, parking lot (plenty of space off season), dont know about season time though! Very friendly, lovely people, good food. Getting there through the town.... despite navigator! Stick to the bigger streets and dont let your navi get you through the lovely but mostly one way streets in the city center... you´ll find yourself circling a lot (nothing to do with hotel though). Hotel itself was busy even in off season. We liked it.
Very nice view to the see, comfortable room. Restaurant only served some menu for dinner; there was no a la cart choice to have dinner.
maybe because of the disco next door one had to endure a lot of noise during the night front office was not able to charge my Amex card (on purpose?)
Good value for money.
Staff were very friendly and location was brilliant Aircon was not v cold but it was ok
Location, price, cleanliness, and friendly staff.
All the staff were very helpfull and friendly
I liked the fact the staff were fluent in english. One small issue was that there was no way adjust room temperature, as one night was a little cold and the room temperature could not be increased.
noisey! rooms were not very sound proof and very noisey.
The great staff..best resturant/lounge in town..and the location in relation to the beach. like all/most hotels in the area..no washcloths in the restroom.
Close to bus line...decent places to eat/buy food within short distance...very nice staff, good English, helpful...very nice pool. Rooms need some renovating, especially showers, which are still way too SMALL!...but still a great value for what I paid (46 e, includes adequate breakfast).
Value for the area. Fast in room internet. Nice balcony in room. Free parking is rare in Spain. Overall this is a good place to stay. Shower water temperature can change up or down quickly.
The receptionists at the Hotel Caribe are the very best. They are always very pleasant and extremely helpful. It is always a joy to stay at the Hotel Caribe. I noticed that the bar/cafeteria were closed more often than in the past.
Access to Cadiz was good via the ferry The hotel garage is really only suitable for small cars. We scratched out rental BMW318 triing to negotiate the entrance.
Very conveniently located; comfortable rooms; staff very friendly and supportive
Very peaceful location but still within easy reach of town. Good food at reasonable prices. Well kept garden & swimming pool.
Was good hotel, quiet, Just unfortunately wasn't WIFi in room, just in lobby area
The small type bungalows and the staff were very helpful.
Location. Excellent restaurant.
I booked this hotel due to rate and pool.I knew location from Cadiz was 8km but hotel had car park and included breakfast. It was one of the nicer hotels we stayed in Spain. Bus ride to Cadiz was less than 30mins. Would recommend to friends.
Good clean rooms
Close to the sea. Good place for relax. Not enough hot water to take shower for two persons. Too wet in the room as all the rooms are on the first floor. The windows can not be locked (all the rooms are on the first floor) - dangerouse. The roomcleaners start to work before we check-out (strange).
good food friendly & helpful staff bit remote rooms very small although very clean
Thought the staff were great and the pool lovely (quiet mid september). The walls were a bit thin. Breakfast wasnt great so best sort out your own.
Cleanliness and comfort were of a very high standard, very good value for the money ,location was peaceful Car parking was inadequate.
Recently renovated smallish room, very ok to sleep and to have a shower (no hairdryer). Basic good breakfast. During our stay very quiet (noisy group arrived just day before we left). Good quality/price, also in the restaurant.
The room Staff
The hotel was very clean and in a good location. Free wifi, well decorated and a nice feel. Not too large good value.
friendly good access to amenities
Excellent location for short, inexpensive bus ride into centre of Cadiz. Beautiful beach within 5 minutes walking distance. Friendly staff, comfortable room, absolutely no complaints.
Budget travelers but with very limited services so the overall value is just fair. It is OK if you are not demanding.
Very expensive for quality of rooms plus first place i see that wants to charge 20E for a cot.
Staff very helpful; near bus stop for out-of-town buses; Need to negotiate a short flight of stairs before accessing lifts
Good location for beach Lack of cafeteria/bar facilities except at breakfast
Excellent location, comfortable rooms. Staff is accommodating, if not overly friendly. The continental breakfast is mediocre.
This hotel is in the modern part of the Cadiz peninsula just two blocks away from the long, clean beach and 1 euro away by public transport from Old Cadiz. There is a Hipercor supermarket about eight blocks away in the other directionf from the beach on the inner harbour side. The hotel has off street parking under sheltered bays. It has a small breakfast service but this was quite new and we didn't try it. There is an excellent restaurant linked to their own bakery just across the road and the staff were very friendly and helpful and tolerant of my elementary Spanish. The staff in the hotel were helpful and the rooms were clean and the daily service left the rooms shining. I haven't read reviews about this hotel. There didn't appear to be a porter and there were a few steps between reception and the lifts to the upper floors but I think I noticed a chair lift for elderly people. We managed to lift our cases on our own to the lift door. No wait for lifts at any time.
The room and bathroom were very clean and relatively modern. The front desk staff only spoke Spanish and were not overly helpful when I needed to make an overseas collect call.
Everything, it was an excellent hotel, with a huge and comfortable room. Real value for money. Excellent hotel stuff, especially the receptionist.
All of the staff were very helpful. Hotel was comfortable and food was very good Rather a long way from the old town. It took and hour each way to walk
Relax and budget
peaceful/ good food/excellent service/good value no
vast room, very comfortable, with very good quality for money. services and staff of very good level just a little bit difficult to locate
We visited the hotel for my wifes 60th birthday - we could not have wished for a more perfect setting. The bedroom was large and very comfortable. The staff friendly and attentive and the gardens were magnificent, The food was excellent and good value for money. We will certainly stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who wants somewhere special.
The rooms and facilities including the different swimmingpools were very good. Also the location is perfect with only 1-2 minutes drive to a fantastic beach. They should have better wireless internet connection. We had to use a cable in the room. Only staff working in the reception spoke/understood english.
The hotel is a bit 'strange', in the beginning we felt like we were all alone, but then it seemed that there are also appartments with a very large pool. Rooms are spacious, but beds are hard. Large bathrooms. Nobody explained us anything, so we checked it out ourselves. Personnel is not really friendly, especially at breakfast. Airco was broken for three days and same period they asked us to shut windows during night because of fumidation of gardens. Strange timing. Hard beds.
Spatious rooms. The SPA is good but could be better. The included buffet breakfast was very good Many drawbacks here. Before going you should really ask yourself if there is a real need for going far from everything else and spend all this money. The apartments are big, but very poor refined. The hotel staff (low season?) is slow (30-40 min for a checkin/checkout) and poorly trained. The swimming pool is little but if you want to take a sunbath, be sure to have your spray for flies and mosquitos. Check carefully the door handles as you could be trapped in your bath for hours...
We liked the layout of the apartment, the quietness and the area. We did not like having to pay 6 euros for the use of the indoor pool, in view of the price of the apartment. Some of the features in the apartment were old (fridge) or broken (safe) and had not been fixed/replaced.
Quiet and clean Staff was a mighty cold although helpful
Location and quietness, but most staff not to co-operative except two ladies trying to assist really. service has room for improvement.no internet connection in public place.access to spa only by extra payments. sun chairs packed away in evening but not easily accessible in the morning
The staff provided excellent service and were always willing to help. Nice weather and great beaches
Apartment location & accessability to the swimming pool distance from main town
enviroment, flowers, garden, pool little expensive
layout & facilities could be a little cleaner
Very nice apartment. The heated swimming pool is fantastic.
- good standing and nice design
cracking locatio on the beach close to restuarants and cheringuitos. nice pool and breakfast comprehensive not so easy to get to by road adn expensive parking
Cleaning of room daily was abit hit and miss eg: we had to reuse dirty glasses, toiletry products not replaced daily.
Beach front location is excellent,though I did have to pay extra for beachfont rooms. lift from rooms to beach without going through lobby great facility. Lobby of the hotel is grubby especially the large sofa which needs cleaning. the whole hotel could do with a makeover. if it were not for the location the hotel would not rate highly and even with its good location I think it is overpriced
The view from of the beach was nice once we paid the 22 euros of extra. The welcome desk was rude. The initial room( without the extra 22 euros of a full front), was poor, we had a perfect view on a gray facade of a decrepit building. The hotel did not reply to our initial questions at provided on the booking website!
great location right beside a beautiful beach not all balconies get the sun
Ideally situated for both the beach and for exploring the old town of Cadiz.
Close to beach, helpful when I left bag behind, view, Charges for parking and wifi
Nice location, comfortable rooms. bunch of crazy gipsy drunk men singing on the beach at 4:am!!!
The view from the room
The location right on the soft sand beach and beautiful design of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would have preferred one double bed instead of two twin beds, but there were none available in non-smoking rooms.
We didn't know that we had to make a reservation to get into the spa.
restaurant food was of a high standard the practice of dogs left alone in rooms as a dog owner I know they get lonely they then start to bark as they are in unfamiliar surroundings better to leave them at home
made to feel at home ,and we where important to the staff no
Friendly staff No facilities for making tea or coffee in the room. Although describded as an apartment hotel many rooms are no equiped as apartments. The hotel is nearly impossoble to find
Spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful especially at the breakfast. Difficult to find even with a GPS.
interesting building design very helpful,kind, pleasant staff.the hotel was exceptionally clean. no
Excellent attitude and very helpful staff. Very quiet relaxing atmosphere. Very spacious rooms.
The quiet residential area where the hotel's situated, very close to the beach and the promenade. Quite a stroll away from the centre and difficult to access if one doesn't have a car.
Very impressed by the interior, good information from the reception, good rooms, View from the balkon good be better, good breakfast.Easy acces to main roads. View from the balkon good be better,
Very helpful staff, room design. Not really a dislike, but travellers should be made aware that English is not spoken by staff at this hotel. The staff made every effort to assist and we got by with a little "spanglish"!
Clean hotel, lovely staff, nice sized bedrooms, relaxing pool area and great location -very close to the beach.
The staff were extremely friendly and very accomodating. We were travelling with two small children and it was an ideal hotel for us with plenty of space in the bedroom, with a fridge and hob also in the room. A very enjoyable stay.
The room was spaceous and the terras was very large. Also the location of the hotel at the marina was very good. Even for a new hotel there was already a lot of damage to various items. Although a lot of facilites were mentioned at the hotel, hardly any facility was open and the staff was ok but not overly friendly.
Great room with a huge balcony. In its class this must be about the largest room we have had as well. Easy to walk to the beach and a few local bars. We used it as stop over on the way to Portugal from Spain. Nothing worth mentioning.
The room was great and the staff was helpful. Modern and clean and comfortable. Oddly, it seems like the prices were so reasonable for such a room because it's in some half finished development that was hit by the recession and simply never recovered. The hotel is great, and the surrounding area is pleasant and safe, it's just bizarre because it's a lot of rich people who clearly invested in this area then got rocked by the recession, so now all the rich people hang out next to half finished houses and their yachts (the hotel is literally a yacht club as well).
The lady at the reception was absolutely charming. Very spacious room with 2 double beds and nice, comfortable bathroom. Huge terrace which overlooked the harbour. You could nearly touch the boats. We regretted to be able to stay only one night. We shall certainly go back. Although the room had been cleaned properly, the carpets and the sofa in the room look a bit "tired".
Wonderful the whole stay! Nothing
the most thing which i was wondered is silence and relax nothing
quiet location room was not vacuumed very well no balcony rooms overlooking harbour were better
