“Delicious food in the restaurant”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We visited on Friday 8th November with friends who drive for an hour each way to eat & stay at this delightful hotel & restaurant. We had a lovely, delicious dinner served by Sean & his team. The food was beautifully cooked & presented. Sean chose a delicious bottle of red wine for us a Ribera del Duero. It was heavenly. There some very interesting works of art adorning the walls including pieces created by my friend. Although we didn't stay overnight, I could see that the hotel was very clean with a lovely garden & pool. It is certainly somewhere to revisit next time we are in Spain.

We appreciate your kind comments. We try to support the local artists by hanging their works on the walls, it makes for a fantastic eclectic collection. The wine you had was indeed a Ribera del Duero; Tamaral Crianza, one of my favorites. I am glad you enjoyed it as much as I do. Thanks again, Sean & Beatriz

We stayed with friends overnight to celebrate my wife's birthday. The experience was first class and we thoroughly enjoyed all the hotel amenities. The accommodation is spacious and very comfortable with sea views and a separate sitting room area. The en suite was great with a very effective and relaxing walk-in shower. The restaurant food was excellent with a wide choice and breakfast was nicely served in the garden and again a varied choice. Sean and his wife made us feel very welcome and we expect to go back again soon. I recommend others to stay in this well appointed small hotel.

This is a very well managed, clean and comfortable hotel that produces excellent food and wines. It has a relaxed atmosphere but the service is very efficient, pleasant and cheerful. Our room was comfortable and spacious being more like a junior suite with a sitting room, bedroom and adjoining excellent bathroom. The only small criticism was from my wife who noted that there was no dressing table or even a bench with mirror in the bedroom where she could do her make-up/hair etc. Additionally, as an arthritis sufferer in her back she found the bed to be very low and a little too soft. Water, tea and coffee making facilities were neatly provided for on the small landing area. An extensive dinner menu is offered, is cooked to perfection and elegantly presented. The quality of the entrecote steak I had was not the best I have had but no fault of the chef. A continental breakfast is offered that we took at a pleasant table outside in the sheltered garden where there is a pool. This is a fine bijou hotel that is hosted in a relaxed atmosphere but with attention to detail by Sean McMahon and Beatriz Gallego de Lerma. Well worth a visit if you are in this area of Almeria. We are looking forward to planning another stay here and also perhaps joining Sean in one of his popular bodega visits or wine tastings.

Room Tip: The three rooms at the front have a limited sea view and small balcony but also some road noise. The...

We decided to have a mini break and took advantage of the hotel Tikar, and what a fantastic idea that was! The room was lovely, dinner superb and the wine excellent. We ate in the garden which was lovely and NO Mosquitos! Sean and I had a conversation about this!
We had a lovely stay and were there again the following evening for the wine tasting - excellent VFM and the wine was good too and the information imparted fascinating.
We loved our mini break so much going back again soon and for the Rioja wine tasting.
Cannot recommend this lovely little hotel enough
Many thanks

Sean and Beatriz were very welcoming when we arrived for our two night stay. Our room was spotlessly clean with a good size bathroom and overlooked a pretty garden where we took a modest breakfast each morning. The restaurant was happy to accommodate our party of six for dinner and we also found the lunchtime 'menu del dia' to be extremely good value at 12,50€. As we were hotel guests my wife and I were also given 10% discount on our dinner menu. Ramps and an elevator have been installed to ease access for wheelchair users. We enjoyed our stay enormously and would definitely use Hotel Tikar again when we return to Garrucha.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 105 overlooking the rear garden. Probably quieter than some other rooms that overl...

I was taken here for a birthday lunch following recommendations. We travelled about 25 minutes purely to dine at this wonderful hotel. It is definitely worth a visit. The food was absolutely delicious, served in pleasant surroundings and we were very well looked after by both the owner Sean as well as his staff. Highly recommended!!

Fantastic reception, unrivalled service, pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast by the pool was perfect and relaxing. The owners are a delight and nothing is to much trouble. A pleasant 5 min walk to the beach and Main Street. A great night time walk along the seafront to a interesting street market and fair
