Located about 2 km north of the town of Tarifa, Cortijo El Pozuelo is a quiet alternative to the more noisy hotels in Tarifa proper. To look at the property it has the look of a cross between an old farmhouse and a 1950's era motel. There are only seven rooms in the hotel. They contain either twin or double beds. One or two of the larger rooms actually have two large rooms; a living room and a bedroom.
The owners of the place are a young couple who are very nice. The primary person who runs the place is Irene a helpful young woman who speaks only a little English. However with my knowledge of Spanish we were able to communicate fine.
The rooms are very nice. Ours was room # 2. It had a large living room with a small kitchen area that contained both a refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was well appointed and had a good shower. The beds were reasonably comfortable. The room did not have air conditioning however by opening the rear window an adequate breeze cooled off the room.
There is a nice free breakfast in the morning. It consisted of rolls, orange juice coffee, and assorted meats and cheeses.
There are nice views of the ocean. The hotel also has a number of free bikes that you can take and ride into town or take along the beach.
The Hotel El Asturiano, which has been built into the old city walls, is found next to the Puerta de Jerez. They offer 8 rooms made up of single, double and triples which include cable/satellite TV and telephone. There is a restaurant and bar also.
Hi i have just been on the perfect holiday for you. It is set in Tarifa in Spain and it is was the beach ride of my life. You can canter along the beach with the sea lapping at your horses hooves. It is a truly beatiful holiday and the company i booked with was http://www.equestrian-escapes.com and they will tailor make the holiday to suit your riding standards and anything else that you may want. Have a look at the website and there are some lovely pictures of just what it is like there.
Casa Mar is a small single family house for rent. It is situated 500m from Tarifa, on a hill with breathtaking views over the sea and the coast of Africa. The house has a sunny terrace, a garden and a small piece of private beach.
It is very isolated, with all the plus and minus deriving from this. It is a very romantic place, indeed and the chimney inside adds more to the romantic feeling of the house. The view is unique, one of the best in Tarifa.
Dar Cilla Guest House is unique of its sort in Tarifa. It is located on the outskirts of the old town on a no-car street within the old 12th century walls. 'Dar' is an Arabic word for a town house in which a series of suites are grouped around a central courtyard. Each suite is fully independent, but there is a pleasant air of 'sociability' and you will meet the owners and fellow guests on the roof terrace over a glass of wine. It is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, castle, harbor (daily fast ferry to Tangiers takes 35 minutes) and the local town beach.
Guest-house Dar Cilla comprises seven exclusive apartments with the accent on charm and comfort. Quality furnishings, Moroccan 'touches', romantic bedrooms, attractive shower rooms, dining-sitting room, kitchen. It has a large roof terrace with reclining chairs for use of visitors. This has fabulous views across the old town and the busy shipping lane in the Strait of Gibraltar across the mountains of Morocco There is a (hot) open shower on the terrace. Each apartment has it own entrance across the roof terrace. All have electric heating. Some have a wood burning fire for winter visitors. All apartments are fully furnished, towels (with the exception of beach towels) and bed linen provided.
Dar Cilla is a STRICTLY NO SMOKING establishment. No animals. Outside school holidays, facilities for children are limited. Dar Cilla is for discerning travelers who appreciate style and a peaceful atmosphere; it is a very special place in the centre of Tarifa!
In Tarifa itself you will not find any big hotel, only hostal and apartments. I hope it will stay that way for a long time.
Las Margarits is just outside the town's centre. That's a big plus, because the centre can be very crowded (so noisy). Just five minitus walking and you are in the centre. Also the beach is about 5 or 10 minutes walking from the Hostal. The main street with the main busstop of all busses is jusr arround the corner.
The apartments has everything you need and are very clean. The building is well maintained and has a fresh color. This is one of the first times I had an apartment where I did not found anything that was broken or did not worked anymore.
- The kitchen has a (working) wachingmachine and the roof of the building can be used to dry your clothes.
- The location is perfect
- It's clean and well maintained
My friends always go in summer for the weekend, they have found a Hostal for 36 euros that is not bad for a double room. I had check for offer in hotels around and never got anything good, (you know I prefer hotels than hostels hehehehe)
Prices for hotels in low season can go from 50/70 euros that I think is too much, and up to 120 euros in summer for high season.
HA has a nice quiet setting, the rooms are reasonably spacious and they have very comfortable beds.
The stairs are a little uneven, but if you get all the way to the top, there is a great balcony/roof to chill out on.
