We spent a day at this place with our 3 kids. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the mix of people is very nice. Only huge disappointment was the busy restaurant. No reservation possible but a waiting list for which you had to check your...More

I write this only to get someone's attention in the management. You have great views and a pretty good resturant BUT the cocktails from the outside bar are the WORST ever. Mostly sugar and a mix of some discussions watered down liquor. One sip I...More

This is something you just simply have to do in Tarifa, hang out with your friends while enjoying the stunning views. The only thing I missed was being waited at the table, you have to collect the drinks from the bar, though that gives the...More

We were here to drink a cocktail after our beach time, the landscape and atmosphere were wonderful, it's true as others wrote about this place. However when we asked for one of several fruit cocktails that were in their list they answered :<< we haven't...More

After a couple of weeks in Estepona we headed south passing the rock of Gibraltar (wich we'll visit next time. Today was too hot) for a swim in the Atlantic. About a 45 min drive (very good roads) we took a detour down to Tarifa....More

This peaceful site of Tarifa is facing the sea and has a fantastic roll. We brought a friend in the area and the truth that is perfect to sip a mojito while evening and see people as doing kite surf in the background. Great if...More

This hotel is not easy to find and there are NO sign posts. The map on Trip Advisor is in fact not accurate, the hotel is located on the beach not in an urban area. The area is mostly a hang out for kite surfers,...More

Great views from the restaurant terrace, probably the best on the whole beach. But never had a drink somewhere before with such an unfriendly, rude and ignorant staff. Very un-Spanish in this very friendly part of Spain!
