“A Beautiful Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

A Beautiful Boutique Hotel, in an ideal location in the centre of this small Spanish seaside town, overlooking the beach and within walking distance to the port of Duquesa.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and appreciated my attempts at basic Spanish.
The Sea View room (112) we had, on the first floor, was very nicely decorated and The view from the balcony is to die for.
Breakfast was served on the front terrace, in the sunshine, although there is ample shade, if required and consisted of a cereal, toast or croissant, freshly squeezed orange juice and tea or coffee, which was all served with a cheery "hola".
If there could be a minor criticism, it is the size of the bath towels, which could be a bit bigger, but, all in all - you may find a nicer Hotel, but you will not find a better location.

Room Tip: Request a Sea View Room, it is well worth it.

We stayed here as a band celebrating some great people's fiftieth birthday extravaganza. Boy was it too too short, idyllic setting friendly people clean and comfortable room within kicking distance of the beach and some fabulous restaurants. Sabinillas is a friendly little town and I would recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: They all seem good, the cleaning lady was very nice.

Just returned from a long weekend & couldn't fault the Doña Luisa in any way! A very stylish & well presented boutique hotel which was absolutely immaculate throughout! Amazing attention to detail decor-wise; contemporary & exceptionally clean! The Staff were really polite, friendly & accommodating & the sea view was just stunning! This place is well positioned for easy access to bars restaurants & the village centre & approximately a ten minute walk along the paved sea font to the Duquesa port. €55 per nite for single occupancy with a sea view including breakfast is exceptional value.

Stayed here for a few days when visiting friends nearby. Had a lovely room overlooking the beach. Staff were friendly, but owner was a little grumpy. However no matter. The hotel is well managed and spotlessly clean would certainly stay here again. Breakfast is a little light, but for the money you could not expect too much. Sabinillias is a quiet spot in May but plenty of restaurants in nearby Duquesa. Recommend Sunday morning market.

Very friendly welcome. Clean room with balcony overlooking the sea. The room was painted well, but the balcony could have used some paint. We missed a coffee station in the room but breakfast was included in the price. Very friendly staff. They gave a good recommendation on the fish restaurant nearby. It is 23km away from Casares, our destination. Casares is in the top 10 of the most romantic villages in Spain. We can definitely recommend this hotel but made use of tips of fellow travelers to ask for a room with sea view.

We stayed here one night as we travelled along the coast, and wished we had stayed here for the week, with the exception of the basic and limited breakfast, I could not fault this hotel or the staff - Excellent, I stay in a lot of hotels and this one was special, very special.

Great rooms, modern and clean, quite, stylish, we great value for a sea view room, you are right on the beach, a genuine 10 minute walk to the port with a good selection of eateries and 2 minutes from the town and supermarkets.

See really great!

Friendly staff, large and clean room with beach and sea view.
Hotel is situated next to the beach and near the excellent restaurants and cafes.
If you go to Sabinnillas this one is the best choice. Very good value for the money !
