Hostal Restaurante Isleta Del Moro
Reviewed 9 February 2014

I can't imagine anybody having a negative thing to say about this beautiful place. The location is straight out of Captain Correli's Maldolin or Mama Mia - more Greek pension in terms of look and feel than Spanish. The hotel/restaurant is set in the heart of the Cabo de Gata so it is as far from the maddening crowd as you can imagine - but this is its charm. The restaurant is hugely authentic, a pretty indoor area with whitewashed natural walls, fishnet decor and rustic furniture. Outside is the most magnificent terrace overlooking the most breathtaking natural harbor. The fresh fish plate jumps from the sea to your platter in a matter of hours and it is beyond delicious. As you eat on the terrace watch fishermen bring the catch home - or watch them sell squid from a bucket for a pittance on the shore. Throw a few crumbs into the water to see a feeding frenzy of teeny fish demolish the feast in a vortex of water. Sit beside brightly painted boats and marvel at how lucky you are to be in such a stunning place.

This is a very popular location in summer (even though in the middle of nowhere) so terrace tables must be booked. Yes it can be a little hectic when busy but this is not the kind of experience you want to hurry. If you want ship shape and polish then stick with the resorts. If you want flavors to die for in a dream location that will stay with you long after the experience itself, then welcome to one of Andalucia's hidden gems.

Room Tip: Didn't stay here but I hear the rooms overlook the water, only €50 b&b in stunning location...

We were tempted by an outside table on the terrace overlooking the sea. On location it delivers but it was chaotic, not enough staff for the number of tables.The food was average and very expensive, lunch was 51 euros and we only had one wine and one beer. All side dishes are extra and afterwards we realise we had been charged for a salad that never arrived!!

Pleasant little hostal with clean rooms and sufficiently equiped for a short stay.

Being the weekend of the Eurovision song contest we managed to persuade the staff to set up a tv in dinning room so we could watch the "Euro-event of the year". This the happily did, despite some early reservations.

The adjacent restaurant offers good quality seafood, if not a bit over priced, but otherwise enjoyable.

Fantastic scenery all round and unspoilt nature parks and beaches. Check out nearby San Jose for beaches and restaurants.

Quaint, quiet little fishing village in Cabo de Gata national park.
Hotel a little tired and over priced but staff very friendly.
Has a good restaurant attached to it serving fresh fish caught locally.
