We stayed two nights at Casa Grande and we're very pleased with our choice of hotel. Casa Grande is a small hotel so don't expect a full restaurant or bar but the breakfast buffet was good and the hot breakfast - made to order - was delicious. There are a couple small rooms in which you can lounge or read a book and if you'd like to enjoy a glass of wine or a gin and tonic, just place your order with the receptionist. The person most often around was Monica, who I think is the owner. She was an absolute font of knowledge, with lots of local insights and excellent recommendations. Our rooms were basic but comfortable and very clean. The hotel is very centrally located, which is great for exploring on foot but did mean we had to traverse some rather narrow streets on our way in and out. If you're lucky, you can get the one parking spot right next to the hotel but if it's taken, speak with Monica and she'll find a place for your car.
Overall, a very pleasant boutique hotel with a lovely ambience. A very nice change from the more corporate ambience of the larger, chain hotels and paradors. An excellent option for a few days in Jerez.
Buffet dinner ok breakfast was good. View from the terrace was lovely. Spa hours too limited. We thought it might offer more luxury than it did but we are not golfers for golfers would be a great choice.
Arrived 12.0 Couldn't book in 'til 14.0. No bar or restaurant available until after 18.0 so couldn't even get a coffee. Went elsewhere to recommended but indifferent Italian restaurant down road. Bar supposedly open at 18.0 but no staff available - finally got a drink and a snack at 20.0.
We arrived very late at night, having waited a long time for a taxi at Jerez airport. Access wasn't a problem and all was fine with the room. We had asked for a double bed but it was a twin bedded room - bit disappointing. Not checking out until 12.00 was good - meant we could go out for breakfast and a look around before checking out.
An attractive little town, Jerez is famous for sherry (a corruption of its name) and its equestrian school. Several bodegas invite visitors to see how sherry is made. The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art is open to the public daily to watch training, with a show every Thursday. The big annual event is the Spring Horse Fair where the mounted sherry barons are prominent. Also see the 11th-century walls of the old Moorish palace.
