Loved this family run hotel. Located off the beach away from the main road but only 10 minutes walk to the best Kite Surfing beach in Tarifa where you'll find an amazing beach bar and restaurant (valdevaqueros). The hotel has a lovely pool with plenty of sunbeds for everyone. The food at the hotel is excellent. All fresh and tasty....

We stayed there this week-end because we were looking for a not too expensive place near Tarifa. It turned out great. Sure the staff/owner is not your standard hotel staff meeting you with a smile and 'how do you do?' but he was genuinely nice and helpful. It is well located if you are looking to be close to Tarifa...

This is a pleasant enough hotel, clean, tidy, fairly well situated but the owners are the most miserable bunch I have ever met in my life. I felt like I was causing an inconvenience by staying. And it was not just on one occasion, as I had to stay there again, purely because everwhere else was full. Prices are too...

I really must review this hotel as it was so pleasantly surprising. My wife and I needed a couple of nights away and having decided on Tarifa, the first thing we did (of course!) was check Tripadvisor for reviews. We nearly didn't choose Dulce Nombre as a result of some of the negatives we saw on older reviews, but the...

We've been coming for the last 10 years. We have watched as this small family run hotel has grown into a very comfortable place to stay. The rooms and apartments are very simple perhaps sparse but nevertheless well kept up and very clean. The owners are locals and although some on Trip Adviser have mentioned that they are unfriendly we...

At a loss as to how to review this place. The reception area looks cosy, nice seating etc. Nice pool area.... But what's with the service, or utter lack of it?? The car park was full of cars but no one was around, the bar seemed open, but no one was serving. It's like a film set... I don't doubt...

I am surprised to see the good reviews for this hotel on here. I wont be long on it. Location is good that it is close to the beach (have to walk 10 minutes to be able to cross the closed off area). Cleanliness is ok and room we stayed in was biggish but dark so make sure you get...

we chose this location based on proximity to windsurfing and kiteboarding. The room was basic; no frills. You need a car if you stay here as it is a 10-15 minute ride into Tarifa. the location is very convenient to the windsurfing however. the hotel has a nice pool. However, staff are not very friendly and cabs are not straightforward.
