La Casa Grande,the view will not disappoint! As you enter your beautifully decorated room and open your patio doors you will be mesmerized by the view!

We stayed in this establishment for three nights. In our five week vacation we must say this hotel is one of our favorites and we hope to return.

Arcos De La Frontera is a beautiful town in its own right, full of history and friendly people. The hotel is perched in the historic part of the town. The moment you enter this home/hotel your senses are catered to. Visually the interior of the house is in beautiful bright and accenting colors, cleverly furnished with calming colors, stunning paintings, potted plants, and somewhere you can hear classical music playing. The owner has been successful in her efforts to great an ambiance of peace and all that is a lovely retreat.

The staff is friendly and helpful. You are given an orientation of the house and services available.

Your room is beautifully decorated. The furniture is more then adequate. We had a desk & chair, closet space, T.V., a radio/cassette player with a variety of cassettes for your enjoyment. The bed was very comfortable. You have control of the heating/cooling in your room. The bathroom is roomy as is the shower.

We opted to have our nutritionally based breakfast here everyday. The breakfast includes the pick of cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagel, warm bread, eggs, coffee, juice or if you are a hearty eater, you may have it all since everything is brought to you except the eggs as they are prepared at your request. It is well worth the price, we felt pampered.

We dedicated two days to the town and on the third took a bus to the port town of Cadiz. From Arcos you can visit several surrounding cities. As mentioned before, you may get all the information you want at the front desk.

If you have a car you will be provided with parking information when you make your reservations. If you are dropping by just ask at the bottom of the town and the residents will inform you where you can park. As for the streets in the historic part of town, yes they are narrow however the drivers are so patient and friendly and know that these narrow streets cause challenges especially to tourists, they'll help you maneuver them.

From our stand point it is a beautiful town and made so much more by La Casa Grande. The views from your room is well worth the price. We requested a double room with a private terrace and paid 97E a night. You will not regret this choice - you will have just arrived to one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in the world enjoy.
