The rooms were a little tired on our visit but they have since all been refurbished, so we hope to go back soon to see the improvements! I wouldn't recommend the 4 star hotel as it does not have its own facilities so you would be walking back and forth to this main in building anyhow and the difference in price is not noticeable…also if you are a golfer there are free green fee offers if you stay in the main hotel! Free parking…..right next to the Jerez race track which makes for a surprisingly soothing back-ground noise…..great breakfast….the Spa was ok….the water was luke-warm which was a little disappointing but surely cannot be normal….golf course is right on your doorstep…so you don't need anything else, right? :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the golf course

We stayed here for 2 nights while we were attending the F1 Pre Season Testing in Jerez. The hotel is located next to the track so the location was fantastic!
The hotel itself is beautiful and very elegant. The rooms (we were on the 4th floor over looking the golf course) were spacious and the views were great. The beds were extremely comfortable and bathrooms were generous.
The staff were more than helpful and spoke perfect English. They were more than happy to organise a taxi for us into Jerez one evening and even recommended restaurants for us.
The breakfast was delicious. Anything you could have wanted was there and again the staff were very attentive and willing to help. I only have a couple of negative things to point out - the bedroom doors were SO noisy when they closed and the wifi in the rooms was patchy at best. But they are only 2 very minor things.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Jerez, I only wish we had had more time to enjoy the Golf and Spa facilities.
Definitely give it a go!

Not an easy hotel to find, it is next to the Grand Prix circuit, which is sign posted. However, once here it is quite luxurious. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which is a bonus. Very good selection of food at breakfast, staff very attentive. A challenging golf course, the spa facilities are very good. Evening meal is a choice of buffet, 25 euros, inc. wine and water, which is excellent value or A La Carte, more expensive. The hotel is close to Jerez, well worth a visit, Cadiz is 20 minutes away and Seville is an hour journey.

This is a highly rated (including by Tripadvisor) and theoretically 5* experience for those looking to unwind and chill out. But buyer beware! The location of the resort is literally adjacent to the Jerez race track and so incredibly isolated unless you are driving. Nothing at all, not even a corner shop, accessible by Shank's pony. This means that Barcelo absolutely have you by the short and curlies.

The staff themselves are very pleasant, but there are so many catches that you will think Fagan and his troop had been at your pockets by the time you come to leave. If you want to play golf (in a golf resort), it is COMPULSORY to hire a buggy for a whopping 48Euro. There is no option to only play nine holes if it is later in the day. You still have to pay for the full 18.

The spa (which is a rather grandiose word for the facilities available) is another 9 Euro a day, although free if you book a treatment over 50 Euro. The "spa" consists of a plastic steam room, a small sauna and an indoor pool, which does have bubble makers and high pressure taps, but with only 2 hot beds to sit on, not exactly helpful at busy times as that only leaves the concrete floor as an option. There is also not even a drop of water on offer or so much as an orange to eat. Facilities and complementaries generally offered in any spa, including the council one in Hackney!

The gym, part of the spa, so again fee paying has one incredibly decrepit treadmill and the weight machines have come out of the ark. It really is quite disappointing.

Which leaves the food. Picture a harshly lit, polystyrene tiled ceilinged room with your work canteen buffet laid out and you are halfway there. For a huge 25 Euro per head, you can eat some of the worst food on offer in Spain (although the salad is fine, but what can you do to raw veg?). This does include half a bottle of wine, but the food is genuinely terrible. I opted one evening for the a la carte menu, which was also inedible. As you cannot go anywhere else (unless you drive 10km) they have no incentive to provide you with a lovely dining experience, let alone value for money.

If you are hungry men who only want to play golf, this is a reasonable pit stop, but if you are a golfing widow, looking to fill your days, avoid like the plague.

Room Tip: Do not pay the extra supplement for the golf range view. Unless you are 11 feet tall you cannot see...

Montecastillo has an excellent 18 hole championship Golf Course that I last visited some years ago a couple of times, as they hosted the VOLVO Masters Final. This has been held the last 4 years at Valderrama, not far away. But when it was held at Montecastillo, we had some nice days watching the players all over the Course with very few restictions and no entrance fee. This of course has changed with the new venue.
This time I went with 2 good friends that had never been to this part of Spain, and we had a very good experience both with the Excellent hotel and the challenges of the golf course. We were a little concerned with the potential uncertain weather when ordering the trip a cople of months ahead, but were quite happy to find 16 - 18 degrees centigrade early December. The next door Jerez Raceway did not bother us too much sice it was only active during daylight hours. The nights were Cool and quiet that was more important to us.
Having booked our Tee-times in advance we got what we expected to get and were very happy with our 3 days stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Golf course are the best choice.

I booked this hotel because I had a voucher for a spa and liked the look of it. It was very good value for money but because it was a five star hotel I didn't bother to take hair conditioner or body lotion or hand cream, and the hotel didn't provide it - nor did the spa - so I ended up with uncomfortably dry skin and unmanageable hair! Neither hotel nor spa offered robes, either, and the spa is not connected to the hotel so you have to walk outside to get to it.
Buffet dinner excellent, breakfast excellent, service excellent - pity about the little things that do make a difference.

The hotel was undergoing significant work at the time of our visit and this put the main dining room out of commission. We ate in a rather cool large room which I guess was for weddings etc.
The meal was buffet style with a poor selection of good food but plenty of adequate food and the wine was gratis but ot 25 euro per meal it needed to be.
The room was on the golf side which cost extra but at least had been refurbished and was away from the noise from the motor cycling track next door.
Golf was good although the weather was not for the time of year, it had "just changed" according to advice received.
The price for all was very reasonable as was the flight to Gibraltar. All worked well and I would go again when hopefully all is working better. Once again the spa facility was an extra cost at a silly daily rate. When will the Spanish recognize it should be included in the hotel cost.

Room Tip: On the golf course side away from the track
