    Fabulous

    I liked the staff who were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast time until 11 am is also very civilised i.e. doesn't close too early. I felt secure and would feel safe staying there alone as the foyer is quite small and visitors are noticed coming and going.

    Rooms on the street would not be suitable for anyone who likes an early night as there are 3 bars across the street, one of which is a football bar.

    location and price

    it's getting tired and in need of refurb. Just a little more at breakfast would be good, but for the price, it's very good

    Fabulous

    Excellent services from the very useful staff. The location is good as it just takes about 5munites to the beach and around 10munites to the centre by walk. Highly recommended for family travellers who want to find a reasonable price and acceptable furniture for a 3 star hotel in the eu.

    Quite disappointed with the breakfast and I think most of Asian travellers like me and my mother would not be happy with a simple and not-hot-soup breakfast at many hotels in the eu.

    Superb

    Very good location - clean and quiet room... Good connection for Internet.. The staff were very friendly and helpful... We forgot a jacket and they kept it for us until we come back (we went to cadiz after for a few days)... Overall it is very good value for money I think.

    Breakfast was ok but my friends did not like it.. To be honest it is not the best one but personally good value for money... Also you need to pay extra money to use parking and security box..

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's location is very central...8 minute walk to Orange Square and 3 minute walk to the Marina. Located on a quiet street in a residential area.

    For the price we paid, we were happy with what was on offer.

    Hotel is very nice, not far from the comfortable beach. The Staff is very polite, english speaker. You can easily get to each place in the city, old medina. I will highly recommended to my friends with children and who wants to have a rest.

    The room was clean and had a small kitchen if you wanted to eat in. The breakfast was ok if you don't mind UHT milk (but that's Spain for you)

    Was surprised to find theroom that was advertised as 3 Adults, with the option of adding an extra bed for a child, was actually only 3 single beds when we arrived and no extra bed so my kids had to Top & Tail!.

    Fabulous

    we were overall happy with our stay at el faro inn, the staff were very helpful, and the location was great close to the beach and shops etc.

    the only thing was there was no hairdryer in the room

    Very good

    Good location, close to beach and old town. Friendly and efficient staff. Clean. Small but useful kitchenette. Grocery shopping nearby

    Bed described as King Size was quite small and the mattress was not particularly comfortable. Breakfast uninteresting. On your site, we requested parking but were informed at checkin that parking could only be requested at the hotel and that there was no space left.
