Cádiz has some of Spain's most unspoilt coastline, including the impressive Playa de Barrosa (see photos of Playa Barrosa) - an 8-kilometre beach relatively few tourist development, which is quite rare in most Spanish coastal regions these days (although, we fear, its wild, unspoilt days are probably numbered).
Zahara de los Atunes, situated next to beautiful mountains and countryside, is one of the most attractive villages in the Cádiz region with white sandy beaches and crystal clear water.Cádiz is also one of Spain's windiest regions, and Tarifa which boasts some more beautiful beaches is a popular destination for surfers. There are some beautiful villages hidden in the mountains just a half-hour drive inland with white houses contrasting with the green hills. Cádiz is the new "in" tourist destination for many Spaniards who live in Madrid and more and more hotels in Cádiz offer four and five star services for tourists prepared (and able) to pay for higher class hotel accommodation.
Sancti Petri (*****)
Urb. Novo Sancti Petri, s/n 11139 Chiclana de la Frontera, Cádiz
Tf. +34 956 491200; Fax +34 956 497053.
The Sancti Petri Meliá hotel, just a ten-minute drive from the city
of Cádiz, has modern, beautiful architecture with bright colours that imitate
an authentic Andalusian palace. It also has attractive gardens. This is a luxury
hotel on the Atlantic coast, located in a very peaceful area known as Novo Sancti
Petri. Watch the wonderful sunsets over the beautiful Playa de Barrosa.
The king of Spain opened this hotel which will hopefully set the standard for the new Spanish hotel industry. It has excellent restaurants although its breakfasts should be improved (like many of the the hotels belonging to the Meliá group which seems to be falling behind other hotel groups such as Hesperia…etc).
One of the best things about this hotel is the wonderful swimming pool (see top photo) overlooking the beach (bottom photo). The hotel offers spa treatments. The rooms are very comfortable. Don't forget to take a mosquito machine with you - they are not provided by the hotel.
