The convenience of the beach and eating establishments. Rooms are clean and bathroom is first class. Pillows could be more plump.
The location is great, right on the beach.
The location of the hotel, it is on the most beautiful beach. We visit the hotel regularly. N/A
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 people , the comfort , the location , the view all is perfect dining room and terrace facilities needs to be updated .
Parking facilities. Convinient for beach, resturants and city centre
Wonderful location opposite beach with night street market in front of the hotel and choice of great restauants. Easy to get about with buses.
Reception staff were excellent on the day. Rooms looked tired and in need of refurbishment.
Very good location and friendly staff. You need to cross the street in order to get to the beach.
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.
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
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
Good location. Smelly smokey rooms & lights in the corridors are very inadequate - it's to dark!
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.
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
value for money, breakfast, rooms far from historical center
Convenient for the beach. Bathroom doors were made of tinted glass. You could see through them.
the staff were super friendly
Nearness to beach We did not like our room it was damp and musty
Modern building and friendly staff Nothing!
Close to the beach, close to the supermarket, nice personnel, well-equipped kitchen, big terrace. Breakfast was rather poor
Exelent location close to restaurants and beach, very clean modern rooms.Friendly staff. Good price! Świetny, nowoczesny hotel w b. dobrej cenie(40E za noc) B.dobra lokalizacja...blisko restauracji i plaży. Polecamy:) Tiny shower
Every member of staff was very welcoming. The apartments are compact but very clean and with an excellent terrace to relax in the evenings. Chiclana is an excellent place to visit beautiful beaches or cities such Jerez and Cadiz. Perfect stay. Hard to think on something constructive to comment, when something is right is just right. Maybe the television channels could improve with a bit more selection.
It was very nice to stay 3 nights here. The famous La Barossa beach is 5 minutes walking. Friendly staff and not hard to find. Kitchen is good equiped, we have had breakfast in the room every morning. In the middle of the hotel is the swimming pool.
The apartment complex is beautifully designed, very clean and modern, with a lovely pool and restaurant. It is in an excellent location very close to the beach with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants close by. The apartment itself was well-equipped and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and spoke some English. The only things we missed in the apartment were a lock on the bathroom door and a mirror in the second bedroom.
We enjoyed our stay at this aparthotel very much, exelent location close to restaurants and beach, very clean modern rooms, friendly helpful staff, would definatly go back.
With the swimming pool just outside the door and beach only 50m away the children loved it! Breakfast was 8 to 10.30am. We ate at 9am and the cooked food had sat there since 8am. There was no evening meal or pool side service since we were out of season.
great location close to the bars and restaurant but most of them were closed as it was at the end of the season
The hotel looks and feels great The Front Desk lady was not welcoming, she kept asking for the people that was staying in the room's ID, even after I paid for the room she didn't want to give me the WiFi pass word until I gave her the ID of people staying in the room. Also she wanted me to pay 11€ for parking when I parked outside by the door w/o a problem and no charge. Everytime I saw her she will remind me of the ID. I work in a 5 star hotel as a manager and the way she treat me wasn't hospitable at all.
Staff were helpful Breakfast poor. There are no balconies and you advertise that all rooms have balconies
I think that the price for this hotel (room) was very good, the staff was nice.. Breakfast is too expensive...
Only one night, very good, breakfast staff excellent
was "pretty" handy for access to old town. Lots of walking involved
Very clean. Nice room. Decent location halfway between tourist city and nightlife. Better for families than solo travellers.
Large, clean room. All facilities of a good standard. English-speaking staff. The hotel is very good but I would reccommend more for business than leisure
Rooms need upgrading but are very comfortable. Location is excellent for the old town. Approx 10 mins walk or bus if necessary. Several good restaurants about 10 mins walk down by the beach. More suitable for city break or business than resort hotel.
Hotel staff very friendly. Hotel located across the street from the beach. Hotel had limited information about things to do in the area.
Central,comfortable , and staff helpful.Even cleaned car windscreen whilst garaged overnight. No
The location was good for the historic town It was a bit tired and in need of room makeovers
staff in general very friendly, very good facilities,nice location... i called three times to try to get an extra bed and noone was able to give me an answer, they never contacted me back to confirm this even though i especifically asked to get in contact with me so that we could book an extra room somewhere else.There was an obvious lack of organization between the staff.
Clean, modern hotel. The fresh fruit and water in the corridors was an excellent touch, and highlights excellent customer service. Not enough information supplied about local area, bathrooms are a little adventurous with the glass walls, it was fine for us but may be a little disconcerting for friends or new couples!
Freebies Noisy & Small Room
Good hotel in the center of San Fernando. It is necessary take the car to go to the sea side in 5 minutes. The personal was vary polite.
reception, helpful staff, wifi cafe bar only open mornings
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
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!
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.
The orange juice and nice people. The breakfeast: the bread wasn't good. The room's view.
The hotel staff was very kind and helpful
Only stayed one night but it was convenient, comfortable and clean - and the receptionist spotted it was my birthday and wished my happy birthday!
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.
Very expensive for quality of rooms plus first place i see that wants to charge 20E for a cot.
Budget travelers but with very limited services so the overall value is just fair. It is OK if you are not demanding.
The hotel was very clean and in a good location. Free wifi, well decorated and a nice feel. Not too large good value.
Excellent location, comfortable rooms. Staff is accommodating, if not overly friendly. The continental breakfast is mediocre.
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.
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.
Good location for beach Lack of cafeteria/bar facilities except at breakfast
The room Staff
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.
friendly good access to amenities
Staff very helpful; near bus stop for out-of-town buses; Need to negotiate a short flight of stairs before accessing lifts
great location right beside a beautiful beach not all balconies get the sun
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
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
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!
Nice location, comfortable rooms. bunch of crazy gipsy drunk men singing on the beach at 4:am!!!
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.
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.
I liked the facilities, the friendly staff and the big selection of food at breakfast and lunch.
The most unique hotel really amazing worth seeing even if you weren't staying here. Really five star. Excellent breakfast great food Everything in the room is so high tech. Our curtains started opening and closing by themselves at 2:00 am. We shoul have asked for a little inservice on how to work all the controls.
The spacious areas at the pool and beautiful scenery In the evenings room service would take up to an hour for a tea and a coffee. More staff is needed. Also it's too big, I do not know where everything is after being 3 days there. La Zahara restaurant is way too expensive, it cost 150euros for 2 and we were both young people. Finally the way to go out to the beach was very long.
Comfortable, clean and pleasant surroundings Found nothing to complain about
The hotel gardens are wonderful. The staff helpful and cheerful. The food is excellent. Only the fact that I paid 53euros per night more than was necessary, and presumably that much more than most of the other guests.
The customer services staff, Bachi, Maria and Monica were very good Rooms were noisy from the disco on the ground floor, the rooms were not up to standard with leaks in the bathroom shower reported but not fixed, the hotel food was not good value for money and very few staff could communicate in English
Excellent pool facilities . The opening hours of the hotel bar we found could be extended at weekends.
Perfect setting, very friendly staff, good facilities, enjoyed spa treatments, cleanliness. The music in the communal areas (corridors) was too loud.
Good design, pleasant staff, clean and efficient, good facilities A bit understaffed in some areas
Too much beton for my taste around the pool and terrace, too much city type hotel
Great place to stay for sun holiday. Beach, golf, pool excellent. Staff so friendly and nice. Lovely touches such as serving sangria by the pool and before going into dinner. Night time entertainment is limited and poor
I enjoy my stay at the Iberostar Andalucia Playa... everything was excellent and I hope I can return soon. Thanks for the flower that I had received from one of your employed. GRACIAS
he design of the hotel is very attractive and the bedrooms spacious and beautifully decorated. The pool is superb and there is very easy access to the beach, along which one can walk for miles. The food is superb and the staff extremely polite and helpful. There's a very relaxed and luxurious air about the place. It is a treat to have a free car park which is reasonably secure, although the parking spaces are quite narrow. We were glad to have a smallish car.
Nice location, friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is new, clean and quite an impressive building, nice pool and access to good beach. Buffet food of generally high standard, although very large and impersonal eating area. Good undercover secure and free parking. Drinking and eating around pool not allowed, presumably for safety reasons but could have used plastic instead of glass. Detracted from being able to fully unwind and relax around the pool. More for family stays than intimate get-away.
Facilities were excellent
Absolutely nothing for kids to do - the park in the sister hotel was locked which seems a waste. The childrens pool was not in use and I felt the whole atmostphere has changed since our last visit two years ago - for the worse.
Great staff, incredibly friendly. Fantastic location, on the beach. Quiet area, great to relax. Lack of F&B offer
Good food and accommodation Unfortunately due to the weather on the day previously, we were unable to use the outdoor as it was closed due to it being in need of cleaning.
The best thing by far were the staff. Very friendly, helpful and courteous, they are your biggest asset We did not like the baby club closing as of the 1st September, ourselves and other families would have welcomed the service.
Excellent location right next to port and in the old town. Foyer earea etc excellent. Rooms don't have views though. Very helpful staff . Room clean and comfortable with all usual facilites, including tea and coffee making facilites. Room service good and value for money
The best thing about this hotel is the spa. The location is also terrific as it's close to the train station and central for shopping and sightseeing. Also, make sure that you go up to the roof as the view is terrific (and then you won't need to make the climb to the top of any of the towers in town!). The decor of the hotel was not what I would consider to be a 4-star standard; the description says that it's a "brand new hotel" but I don't see how this is possible - everything looked very worn-out. Also, you have to pay extra to use the spa, which was worth it, but then they also have a bunch of other charges on top of the extra charge - such as, you have to wear flip flops in the spa and if you don't have any, you have to buy some from them. They also charge extra for towels in the spa, which seems a bit petty - we used the ones from our rooms rather than pay an extra 1.50 euros each, but then had no dry towels to use in our room.
wonderful location, close to bus station and rental car agency as well as the heart of the old city
We were treated extremely well by the staff and when they realised we were visiting from NZ showed additional positive interest in our well being.
comfortable the cleaning woman didn't change used glasses of our room so we had to wash them to use by ourselves.
Nice and central but no real buzz in the surrounding area as with our hotel in Seville. instructions on how to find it. Totally incomprehensible. Took nearly 45 minutes to find it. When rung hotel staff no real help. Access to hotel garage diabolical
the situation, and the brasserie style cafe
the position of the hotel in relation to the attractions of the city we booked no smoking rooms and were put into smoking rooms one of which could best be described as an ashtray! Staff showed little interest in solving the problem.
The staff at the breakfast was unpleasant, not helpful or nice. No parking
SPA is excellent... breakfast was not included to the price, strange... ( 117 eur )
Location, reception areas English translation of menu
location was perfect! The beach and restaurants are very close.
Comfortable room, convenient cafe on site
Very pleasant & clean
We like all good restaurents and bars close to the hotel. Nice walk along the beachfront into old town (30 min). Our apartment have a good view over the sea. Clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful and Nice.Beach playa victoria also very good. Nice people in Cadiz overall. No.
Great staff: super-friendly and helpful. Very quiet room. Excellent location practically on the beach. Trifle expensive for a 3 star hotel, but then it was peak season and all the hotels were full.
location and Privacy No pool
Staff helpful & friendly. Location, close to beautiful beach & was walking distance to where i needed to be everyday (Swimming Pool). Cost (expensive), especially when compared to the deals you can get these days (recession times).
not so expensive but comfortable and clean! excellent!!
Good and friendly staff, clean rooms Expensive based on room, no breakfast & location, but choosen because it was in walking distance of the swimming competition centre
The staff were extremely helpful and generous, the room was lovely, air conditioning always worked, good powerful shower and the pool was lovely and refreshing whilst the sun loungers were nearly always empty! There is nothing to complain about.
Helpful and friendly attitude of staff. Twice at breakfast, ham and cheese was not replenished on plate.
We found it a peaceful hotel just away from the busy areas. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Allowing us to take our small dog was a bonus. We would recommend the hotel and will be going back in the near future a very small point but it would have been nice to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room .
Cheap price, ease of booking Not enough staff -1 for whole hotel! No maps. No customer service whatsoever. Had to wait outside for 15 minutes before anyone came to unlock the door on check in!! Rooms very simple and bare. Bathrooms nice, surprisingly.
Clean, good value, No problem with late check-in No- all good
Location Friends who were with us had a very poor room which needed modernisation, very disappointing for a Parador.
The view of the rooms was excellent. The hotel is very well located, very clean... rooms has everything u can need during a vacation. Hotel has great pool by seaside, and one very nice thing... they had a live piano player every night at the restaurants area.. very romantic!!! Definitely i would go there again! The rooms were kinda old... definitely they need some refurbishment... still they were extremely clean and comfortable.
The excellent situation, and the view from the terrace. The courteous and helpful staff. very good breakfast. Easy walk to the od town with all its attractions. If you want the beach there is an excellent one just 2 mins turning right from the hotel. Always something to see in the bay, we were pleased we took the binoculars. There were problems with the pool while we were there, but I assume this was only temporary.
The very good accessibility to all the sights which you need to see in Cadiz couldn't have been happier with the location. The restaurant.
Excellent possibility to combine "city activities" (fascinating history, culture, flamenco, gasttronomy etc) and "beach activities"
Rooms spacious and clean No beach access
The location. The staff is trying very hard to give you a good experience, still, no one can be that good so you forget about the old hotel. Very old and in bad condition, not refurbished for around 20 years. Airconditioning in first room not working at all during the day, so we got a new one when we came back after dinner. Then we find out that the AC is switched off in the whole hotel its switched off at 11.30 pm means you will have a very warm sleep. There are much much nicer hotels for this price in Cadiz. Very surprised to see this rund down place being marketed as a Parador. Very very disapointed.
Very convenient location. Spacious and well appointed hotel room. Good sea views from balcony. Airy public rooms.
Good location and great view parking available The pool was not in use
it is very closed to the old city of Cadiz...the view on the Altantico is fantastic...The swimming pool is very nice as well. the room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend it.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff; the tremendous variety of food and entertainment. The lovely swimming pools. The disabled room did not have grab-handles in the bath to give more stability when showering.
relaxing atmosphere, closesness to beach, excellent buffet
fast service in the restaurant, animation, cleanliness SPA is rather old with limited treatment and service, strong kitchen smell in the room at breakfast and dinner time, few staff speaking English, slow and bad service in the bar (during animation program)
Staff very efficient and friendly The guests - my wallet and mobile telephone were stolen at poolside
Very welcoming and informative from moment of arrival. No language problems. Very suited to families but equally suited for a quiet break which we were looking forward to as no noise disturbance even though hotel quite full. Food excellent with plenty of variety and fresh produce - good value for money.
Everything was absolutely perfect: very clean, delicious food and very friendly staff. We were there from 24/3/08 until 31/3/08 -> it was awesome. We also went to the MotoGP-race @ Jerez, which is only a 45 min. ride -> great holiday!
Tranquil setting, excellent food, very good pools, good access to beach, good picturesque grounds and attentive staff
we had a very nice sea view no very enjoyabale stay
For a large hotel-and I generally don't like large hotels-all systems worked with precision. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient and the location of the hotel with less than a 2 minute walk from the hotel to the beautiful barrosa beach was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel. No!
Food buffet was excellent every evening, something for everyone. Very peaceful surroundings. The staff were all very pleasant, but we found there was not enough of them in the bar areas - had to wait for drinks, could not get service on the outside terrace. Disappointed that the pool bar was not open later than 6.30 on warm sunny evenings in April.
View from the bedroom. Very comfortable bed. The fact the swimming pool was out of use (& had been for a long while). Staff not as good as they could have been.
Position. Rooms were good - ours faced the Cathedral. Staff very pleasant. Breakfast could have had more choices, but adequate.
The staff. Both the front desk and restaurant personnel was very welcoming, friendly. The front desk personnel went the extra mile to accommodate all our needs. No parking
The staff were very helpful and the location was perfect for visiting the city. Initially there appeared to be some cleanliness issues but these were addressed promptly
