Hotel by the sea
We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in September 2001 a the end of our first tour of Andalucia. This was well before I discovered VT, and I haven't got any notes or details so I'm relying on my memory. And the picture isn't mine - those were pre-digital days and film was precious !
The hotel was quite comfortable, with a spacious room, good bathroom, and a view over the beach out to the Atlantic. It had its own underground garage, so we had somewhere safe for our rental car, and was on the bus route along the front into the Old Town. Tryp hotels are part of the Sol Melia chain, and like all the other hotels in the group, serve a very good breakfast ! We did actually use the hotel restaurant once - I'd promised Liz that we'd have paella sometime on our trip. When it had got to our last night without paella, we went looking nearby. All the other restaurants seemed to only be doing pre-packaged paellas, we went back to the hotel where it might not have been, but at least it was a very good meal !
If you intend to be at the beach most of the time, this is a good Hotel, as it is just 10 meters from the main beach in the modern part of Cadiz (Playa de la Victoria). There are many terraces, restaurants and bars around and the seaside walk is very lively at nights.
BUT if you plan to visit the old town and are not very inerested in beaches, this hotel is a bit far from the center, you would have to take a bus(nº1) or a taxi to go there (20 minutes).

RE: WHERE TO STAY
For your info, the follg 2 JPGs are copied from a recent Cadiz tourist office leaflet showing accomodation available in Cadiz city:
----for next one add a 1 after hotels.
You can explore any of the places in the old town. The nearest beach is called CALETA and is very busy in the summer. Locals will flock to it from the old town. Along the Atlantic side is a very long beach. The hotels PLAYA VICTORIA and TRYP LA CALETA are facing the sea and are popular with those wanting some comfort. They are a bus ride away from the old town.
Actually Cadiz is fun and busy in summer and of course costs increase. Across the bay at El Puerto de Santa Maria, which is nearer to the airport at Jerez , there are plenty of bars and restaurants and it's really busy during the summer.
It's possible to get over to Cadiz old town by regualr ferry and maybe a catamaran service this summer.
