Hotel Mar de Frente
Reviewed 19 September 2008

A little overprized. Don't stay at room 23. It's way to small. We were two people on a 2 week round trip. Not enough space for luggage. The room is cleaned everyday which is nice but a waste of resources in our opinion. Parking might be a problem. Staff need to smile more:)

We just spent a glorious four days at the Hotel Mar de Frente. The hotel could hardly be closer to the sea, and overlooks some stunning beaches. At night all you hear are the waves hitting the shore. We had one of the rooms with a terrace, the room was large, if a bit Spartan, but there was a fine sized wardrobe with plenty of draws underneath, two bedside lockers and and wrIting table. The ensuite was well appointed, if a bit cramped. We were not bothered about the lack of privacy, but the previous reviewer has a point about the lack of windows. The rooms was cleaned every day, and we found the standards of cleanliness very high.

The fact that the owners have English and we have no Spanish was not ideal, we were fortunate that we we did need to make a query there was a guest who did speak both languages about at the time to translate.

So, if you want a simple but clean and comfortable room with stunning views and direct access to a beautiful beach, the Hotel Mar de Frente is for you. We certainly hope to return. Don't expect the facilities of a fully equipped hotel (it is actually a "hostal") however.

The rooms are really horrible an badly decorated. We stayed in a room with a “balcony” which did not actually have any windows unless you open the door to the common terrace which is also a hallway to the rooms, so you can not have any privacy… the room costs about 110 euro with a breakfast that did not include even the orange juice for which we were charged apart. I really hope that no one else makes the mistake to stay at this horrible place, because there are lots of nice and beautiful places around Cadiz, some cheaper and with a lot better service.

Great hotel, simple but very confortable for a beach vacation and clean. The location is superb: in front of a beach (frequented by many naturist), with a great view of the ocean and, on clear days, of the north of Morocco. The big problem are the owners: totally unfriendly and not able to say a word in english. Quite expensive but if love sea view - and know to speak spanish - really reccomended.
