“Atmospheric and comfortable – they should boast about it more! ” Vejer de la Frontera

Okay – here’s a bit of boasting…!!!

“Atmospheric and comfortable – they should boast about it more!”
Reviewed by clients from Oxford, UK

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of October and wished we’d booked for longer! We stayed in the “Triperia” annexe which doesn’t do it justice – it’s a separate house just a few doors down the street but you get all the benefits of the hotel. In fact, as Triperia has a lovely little pool that main hotel residents can’t use we think it’s better! The hotel restaurant is in a lovely garden and has a very exotic and romantic feel. Sunny breakfast or candelit suppers. There are also several sun terraces where you can relax and enjoy the views. Only criticism is that the staff don’t tell you about everything the hotel has when you arrive! We found things almost by mistake – such as the hotel’s fab rooftop cocktail bar and a resident’s kitchen in the Triperia house. Triperia has a “2 nights for price of 1” midweek deal which is great value for what you get. The town is gorgeous and has amazing views. There are several nice bars and restaurants in the area.

“An exotic little gem”
5 of 5 starsReviewed by clients from Benahavis, Costa del Sol in October

Tucked away in one of the Pueblo Blanco’s of Cadiz village of Vejer de la Frontera, is this truly delightful little hotel. It is registered as a 2-Star but in reality has more charm than many a 5*.
La Casa Califa is a warren of little Hide and Seek rooms, Map rooms, Games rooms and twisty passages that hold a strong Moorish influence proving the history of ancient Vejer. The views across the rice plains down to the sea are breathtaking and it is centrally situated on the main square Plaza España with easy walking through the steep cobbled streets to discover the rest of the town and its many excellent restaurants and shops.
The Restaurant of the Califa specialises in Moroccan food serving excellent meals and has a good selection of wines. It is on the lowest level of the hotel set in a delightful evocative garden. Attached to the Califa is another building where one can enjoy afternoon Tea or a drink on the Rooftop terrace and view the quite stunning black and white artistic photo gallery.
Make a point of buying the Califa CD which will remind you of a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The AFRICA Suite is by far the nicest, closely followed by TORRE on a shared staircase. LA PALMERA overlooks the main square and although not a Suite is very pleasant.
