This place is good! If you come in winter, it may be a bit cool, otherwise perfect. We had the corner room above the check-in area and were happy, sweaters on! Outside the hotel, there are gazillions of restaurants, just waiting for you. Take the local dinner, consisting of a package of starters, main meal and dessert. Usually, it's a good bargain, and as the locals buy it, it must be good. And it is! We stayed for one night, coming from Gibraltar, leaving for Ayamonte. In later November, there were probably not many guests, but we were welcomed and offered other rooms too. In low season, especially if you like old cities, don't miss it. Also, look up the Tarifa web site with all the historics ...

Room Tip: Parking may be tricky, as you are in the old city of Tarifa, there is no overnight parking. Allow ex...

Jsut stopping for a night en route to Seville after taking the ferry from Tangier, this was a lovely town and a super place to stay. Unexpectedly large room at the front with balconies overlooking the street. Warm and welcoming even in the off season. Thanks to Barbara for making us feel at home.

My husband and I recently stayed at La Casa Amarilla for three days. The hotel worked perfectly for us! It was quiet, clean, and much nicer than many of the places we've stayed in Europe. The refrigerator and kitchen was a huge bonus because it allowed us to cook some of our meals. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel is in walking distance to everything in Tarifa. We will certainly stay here again next time we're in Tarifa.

We spent three pleasant and enjoyable nights at Casa Amarilla.

Getting there, follow the signs to the harbour, then left into the old town, which is largely a one way system. When San Mateo church (which you can’t miss) looms in front of you, stop. La Casa Amarilla is on your right, the entrance is ten metres down a quiet alley. Parking is limited during working hours; we were fortunate to find an overnight space. Otherwise, follow the road round, and at the T-junction turn right. This takes you about the castillo to a hill, overlooking the harbour, where there is ample free parking.

Our stay was bookmarked by two serious rainstorms, but we had delightful weather in between. We had chosen a reasonably priced one bedroom apartment. Barbara, our host, sorted out minor electrical problems with northern Swiss efficiency and was informative, helpful and ironic throughout. I understand that some of the rooms are in mudejar style, but ours was minimalist, with pink walls and creaky, incompetent floorboarding. But SPACIOUS. And quiet. And comfortable. Did I say spacious?

There were cooking facilities with all usual pots, pans and utensils, except of course for a kettle - bring your own. A big yellow bathroom. An enormous bedroom. A living area where the sofa showed previous mistreatment by various surfer boys (and girls). But we threw a rug over it and could have been at home.

We spent little time in Tarifa during the day, using Casa Amarilla as a base to visit Gibraltar (has to be seen to be believed), and the lovely Vejer, Conil, Roman Baelo Claudia and the spectacular, deserted, local beaches. Besides, we were there out of season, and Tarifa was more or less closed.

Nonetheless, I could barely drag my partner away from Casa Amarilla. Had we not been heading to Granada next, she might still be there.
