La Mirada Hotel
Ranked #16 of 19 Hotels in Tarifa
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Very basic hotel. I had a good size single room that was clean and comfortable and well priced. My room did not have a view, but then again I wasn't in my room that much. Easy walking distance from bus station and into the old town and beaches. If walking is problematic, then stay in the old town. No problem with any of the basic amenities and the staff were fine. It is off the main road by a block. This is a good travelers hotel, but definitely not luxury.

Room Tip: Ask for a ocean view

This hotel is small, clean, and affordable. It is outside of the old city, but near the best beaches in Tarifa. The area is kind of sketchy, but in a "beach-town" kind of way. The advantage is that it is very near to the ALSA bus stop connecting it to Seville or Algeciras.

We had a double room on the rooftop--which is a sparse "terrace" with a great view. The AC was not really functional, so we had to sleep with the windows open--the ocean breeze was cooling, though.

Nice shower, clean bathroom.

Breakfast selection was slim, but adequate.

Service was excellent--really helpful with local suggestions and arrangements.

Though there is nothing wrong with it...we would probably stay in the city next time to take advantage of the restaurants and energy.

Room Tip: Roof rooms are warm, but there is a nice view.

Please note my family booked a triple room in La Mirada Hotel in the city of Tarifa for 90 euros plus tax. The toilet in the first room we were given was dirty. The 2nd triple room had a non working hair dryer and a non working phone. When we asked that the hair dryer be replaced or open another room just to use the hair dryer. - we were said all rooms were occupied and they had no spare hair dryer or phone and the staff would look into it tomorrow- no apologies were offered. In fact the first front desk clerk got upset when we told him about the dirt bathroom - imagine that- as though it was our problem. We were very disappointed with this hotel as we travel a lot and usually if there is a problem some solution is offered.

Room Tip: If you plan to stay in Tarifa - try to avoid hotel La Mirada if you can.

The rooms were very small with very hard beds and pillows. The bedside lamps didnt work until we went down to reception to ask for globes which we inserted ourselves. There also appeared to have a problem with the gas as we were not able to have a warm shower until after 9.00am so we were very glad we were not taking the first ferry to Morocco.
The room was a bit noisy until after 11.00pm because of the sporting facility beside the hotel.

Perfect modern rooms with a nice breakfast. Unfortunately the hairdryer was wrapped with someone else's hairs, which was pretty disgusting, so I'm knocking off a star.

The location just in the near of the ancient city and beach is great but in the direct neighborhood You face the school with a lot of noisy sport activities until late night (if You travel in the time of busy school). The place is clean but very basic (Shower was broken) the rooms were quite small and the beds are pretty short and little soft. The breakfast was also basic but ok. Free w-lan.

Room Tip: All pretty much the same.

The hotel was nice and the service great. It's very close to the beach.Although the room had a weird smell (it went away after we opened the windows) it was comfortable.
