Booked this hotel at fairly short notice on booking.com as was visiting my daughter who was au pairing in islantilla. Everywhere in islantilla was twice the price & the pics & info on booking.com was a bit suspect. I expected a motel rather than hotel, right next to a road etc. But I was very happily surprised.
The hotel was peaceful , pretty with a lovely pool & pool bar, a restaurant, irrigated grass around, beautiful old characterful building. The room was fantastic & the room cleaners were efficient, thorough, but also totally worked around me. I was working off the wifi for huge chunks of the day, having google hangout meetings etc & no problems st all! Totally strong connection. When I finally left the room to go for s swim in the afternoon. I put my 'please clean me' note on the door but not really expecting them to be around st that time but they cleaned it. Or they cleaned it whilst you went to breakfast. Totally fantastic service. I left a tip.
Air conditioned rooms, lovely restaurant, loads of potted flowers everywhere. It really was a lovely hotel. Full board if you wanted it. We had b &b but had dinner there one night. I had booked 2 people (my 7 year old son came too & he liked it) but my daughter stayed one night & they were v relaxed & didn't charge me.
Yes you have to have a car to stay there, 100%, as it is not in the town but it was a 5-10 min drive to islantilla which has a really lovely beach, loads of restaurants & playgrounds & cheap parking. I was very pleased we weren't actually staying in islantilla which was v full of tourists. Mainly Spanish people on holiday, some Portuguese too. Our hotel was full of Portuguese people on holiday. The restaurant felt v authentic Portuguese (having lived there in the past). I recommend b & b rather than half / full board. But as a family run hotel. They might actually be Portuguese I'm not sure but they were v friendly.
Really lovely. Would stay again if I came to this area. Much nicer than the hotels at islantilla. Very relaxing.
