The Hotel Donana is a block back from the beach in Sanlucar and about 10 minutes walk from the main town square inland. Our room had a lovely balcony and sea view and was very comfortable. No fridge though. Air con was fine and the bathroom spotless. The public rooms were light and airy and the breakfast buffet was very good.
The swimming pool was in a walled garden with plenty of loungers but no mattresses and the hotel provides towels for a 1.5 euro/day fee.
In mid September the town was very quiet and the fish restaurants round the corner on the harbour side were extremely quiet. The tapas bars in town were lively after 8pm
We went to the Donana park by boat, nice but low key, and to a sherry bodega Pedro Romero where we had a good tour for 6 euro each including tastings
Sanlucar is VERY Spanish and we were the only non-Spanish in the hotel
Overall a pleasant stay
