i didn't book any apartments before, so i stopped in Rodalquilar, within the Parque Natural Cabo de Gata and found an apartment house. Self catering in th kitchenette was not a problem. Every apartment has it's own terrace. It is a perfect recommendation for guys, who likes it quite and nature style. The beach is not far and is a nice walk in the andulicia countryside, or with the car just three minutes. I spend a couple of days there and enjoyed the silence and went hiking in the mountains.
Very quite and clean with a garden and turtels in the middle of the house and a panorama terrace. They have limited apartments in different sizes. Fully equiped kitchenette. I was choosing an apartment with seperate bedroom. An amazing view from the panorama terrace. They have an own spring an solar energy.
For our last seven nights on Spain's southern shores, we had not booked any accommodations so we would be free to roam at our leisure depending on what took our fancy. It was the final night of that stage of our journey when we fronted up in San José at about 2:30 PM, where our Lonely Planet book said there were some good possibilities - and we soon spotted a nice looking hostal. However, a sign taped to their locked front door said something in Spanish and gave some phone numbers, so we kept looking. We did not have to go far because located next door was the equally attractive Hotel Atalaya. All was quiet as we entered but a very helpful 'George' soon arrived at the front desk, thanks to a motion detection system, and at a price of 45 Euros we quickly settled on a room overlooking the main street. Strangely, just after we had finished with our luggage and emerged onto the street for a look around, a lady returned to the hostal and opened it up!
Hotel Atalaya is kept very tidy and has a beautiful inside courtyard - a real Spanish look to the place. They also have a small parking lot at the side of the hotel where I was able to easily find a spot for our car. Beside the check-in desk is a small cafeteria where breakfast is served (it was part of our rate). San José is not a very big town and the hotel is located on the main street right where all the restaurants and other businesses are congregated - so it is quite an easy walk to reach whatever is happening during the evenings.
Our beds were comfortable and no complaints about the bathroom either. We had quite a few conversations with George as he was quite a friendly guy and there were not many other guests around at this time of the year. We paid 45 Euros (US$65) for this enjoyable hotel that accepts credit cards for payment.
We've just come back from a week's stay in San Jose (end of May). We rented a house whilst in the UK but when we got to San Jose, there was lots of accomodation for rent. A lot of the Hostals seemed empty/quiet. It seems very simple to find a place to stay outside the main July/August holiday season. I would recommend that if you are thinking of visiting the area then you have nothing to worry about in terms of accomodation so long as it isn't in July/August
if you are looking for acomodation of the area, contact the tourist office of sna jose, they will sned you a excell document with all the hotels and hostels there, inlcuding prices and telephones.....

In the middle of he aprk a quiet destination, prices go from 50 euros in july and august adn 30 euros in the rest of the year, but it is very quiet during that time.

Very clean and tidy, in great location in the Natural park, behind the beach at Los Escullos. Ideal base for exploring the area. Cost is E50 for double room per night high season (July/August) E40 the rest of the year.
