One night in July
We stayed one night here and will start with the negatives - to be honest we had trouble sleeping with the hum of the fridge and would be great to have one more pillow. The area outside and other guests were quiet so this was good. The shower was freezing. The terrace roof was not accessible (so false advertising as it looks like accessible yo all room) Positives - helpful staff, high cleaning standards and hand sanitiser readily available. Fantastic location and microwave in the reception very helpful. The room was cool enough and we didn’t need the aircon. Despite the noise, we were grateful to have a fridge.

Hostal El Faro; an eccentric bachelor uncle
On the plus side: very helpful and attentive staff, a very clean suite, a very good location. On the quirky side: a building that has not seen upgrades since it was built in the 1950s (judging by the glossy mahogany doors and hardware). Consequently, no one has thought to install a toilet paper holder in proximity to the toilet. The toilet itself is barely accessible as it was placed right up against one of the exterior walls. Also, the shower curtains were installed well within an undersized tub, causing the curtain to "lick" every person trying to shower. Downright astonishing: this is the very first hotel we have ever stayed at where we have not been tempted to swipe the soap. My kids came up with several lurid olfactory descriptors that I will not repeat here. Location: a two minute walk from the beach. This hotel also captures ocean breezes, cooling our suite at night (a big plus if you're from a northern climate). Being so close to the beach, it is also on the circuit frequented by kids in cars with stereos going thumpa thumpa well into the morning hours. There's no escaping Ricky Martin... Great food and coffee in close proximity but there's not much else to do as Chipiona is a dedicated beach destination. It's a great place to work on a very deep tan (or burn). The beach itself is fabulous.
