Monasterio De San Miguel Hotel
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Very grand building, lots of public areas, good bar and restaurant. Room with a balcony, overlooking the pool, quiet and well furnished. Breakfast buffet very well presented and good choice of food. Adding breakfast, and superior room and parking, made it quite expensive. Staff, particularly on Reception, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

The hotel is beautiful along with the building. It's located fairly centrally, with the famous Romerijo within walking distance.

The problem with the hotel is the rooms. They are quite dated - as rooms in Spain often are. However, they were not dated in a charming way. The bed wasn't great; the pillows weren't awesome. In all honesty, I thought the rooms would have more "character".

Lovely building and communal facilities, but disappointing rooms.

We have just returned after staying in this hotel for a week. Originally were going to stay in Cadiz but then realised that this would be a bit restricting regarding travelling to other parts of the coastline so we booked an Easyjet package -flight & hotel and it came up with this hotel just across the water from Cadiz. It was lovely being an old Monastery it was full of character bits from it's past as well as the old church. The rooms were very spacious, we had one overlooking the patio, gardens & pool, this had a lovely balcony which you could sit on in the evenings to enjoy a local bottle of Cava. It is tucked down the side streets so it could be missed but it is very close to the local restaurants and the ferry boat to Cadiz. This only takes approx. 25 mins and is so easy. The hotel has a car park so were able to put the car away as the streets are very narrow and taken up by the residents The breakfasts were really lovely and weather permitting can be eaten outside. It also has 2 restaurants & a café/bar so if you don't need to go out but I would recommend eating in the local pedestrian area where all the Tapas bars & restaurants are, this is where all the locals comer out to eat and parade. Super hotel to explore Cadiz & the area.

Room Tip: As its an old Monastery some rooms are very small so need to check what you are booking

Hotel packed full of character.

However the quality of the food doesn't match the price that it costs.

The waterfront is a fifteen minute walk and the beach is a good half hour walk away.

Recommend as a short stay only.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony!

We stayed a couple of days at this hotel when visiting Cadiz and its Atlantic Coast. The hotel is very large and sometimes it may be difficult to find your way as there are not many signals. You certainly do not loose the felling of living in a monastery as at least in our area, we did not get much noise. The room was right size for a four stars hotel. Furniture and decoration needs to be renovated or better maintained as , although all fit very well in the place, it is obvious it has not been maintained since the days the hotel was opened. We did not use the swimming pool, but it looked OK, same as the garden surrounding it. The breakfast was what you could expect from this type of hotel:buffet will multiple choices, suitable for business travels, conferences, etc.. In fact that was one of the things that did not meet our expectations, the hotel did not have any charm or personal details. Although the location is good and is walking distance to everything and convenient when leaving the town by car, it is truth that the buildings surrounding it are abandoned in some cases and there is not much light when walking back by night unless you use the main street where the entrance is. Do not use the back streets coming from the river as those looked dangerous.

Aside from Catholic boarding school flashbacks of Madonna and baby Jesus at evey turn we had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. It's a bit dark and dated and impersonal however the cafe, pool and courtyard area we loved. A little noisy with people coming and going.

Party of four friends had an excellent stay in this delightful hotel. Day areas and pool a delight with ever helpful staff. Rooms a little tired but perfectly adequate. Perfect location for train to Cadiz and Jerez, as well as the return by catamaran from Cadiz .Tio Pepe tour Saturday morning was excellent. Search out the restaurant El Arriate in Puerto de Santa Maria on the road from harbour up to Bull ring, wonderful food, delightful couple running the restaurant serving local specialities and quite reasonably priced.
