2 Best Hotels in Tarifa, Costa del Sol and Costa de Almeria

Hotel V... Vejer

$$$$ | Calle Rosario 11--13, Vejer de la Frontera, Spain Fodor's Choice

The spacious rooms at this restored 16th-century mansion in the heart of the spectacular village of Vejer de la Frontera overlook the coast and the countryside with white villages speckling the horizon. Original features abound—exposed beams, stone arches, and the fine columns on the patio—and sit in harmony with modern touches such as polished cement floors, super-soft linens, and roll-top tubs. All rooms include antique furnishings alongside local sculptures, but no TV. The rooftop terrace offers stunning views as well as a heated plunge pool (open Easter–October) and sun loungers. Don't miss the spiral glass staircase that takes you down to the massage room housed in the original stone water deposit.

Hurricane Hotel

$$$$ | N340, Km 78, Tarifa, 11380, Spain

Surrounded by lush subtropical gardens and fronting the beach, the Hurricane is one of the best-loved hip hotels on this stretch of coastline, famous for its Club Mistral wind- and kitesurfing school and its horseback-riding center. Rooms are upbeat and simply furnished, making good use of white, cream, and natural terra-cotta tiling, and fit in well with the surroundings. Those facing the highway are cheaper but can be noisy with traffic.

Cons

  • 6 km (3½ miles) from Tarifa proper
  • Rooms are plain
  • Three-night minimum stay June to September
