Nice beach hotel
"This hotel was very nice, with a great location right on the beach. But I was a little surprised how far away it felt from the main sightseeing area of Cadiz. It's a 10 minute cab ride away, which isn't horribly far, but since it was raining the whole time we were there (so we had no use for the beach or the pool), it felt inconvenient over the course of a few days. But the staff was nice and friendly, and if you're lucky enough to have great weather I'm sure you wouldn't notice how far away it is!"

Spotless hotel right on suberb beach
"We spent four nights at the hotel and were immediately impressed by its cleanliness and attention to environmentally friendly features.
Very spacious feel to whole hotel, free towels and limited selection of drinks available at swimming pool and the large sunbathing terrace.
Staff very professional but friendly also.
Victoria Playa is right in front of the hotel and is a Blue Ribbon beach- one of the best beaches I have visited for amenities. Plenty of cafes and bars along the beach without being tacky.
The Cadiz Tour buses stop in the square right outside hotel.
Also the Number One bus route runs along the top of the square into town/bus station/rail station every 10 minutes - 88 cents per trip. Compact old town around the cathedral worth a walk around. Port has cruise ships dock there - a buzzy atmosphere and right next to old town.
A Number 3 bus from town will take you to a very modern El Corte Ingles store that includes a cinema, if you fancy a half day off the beach.
You can catch a ferry across to Puerto de la Santa Maria which has sherry bodegas as well as more tapas bars and fish restaurants."

Great Location - Fine Hotel
"Stayed at the Playa Victoria for two nights recently with my husband on a 12 day trip around Spain. We loved the location with a great beach right outside the hotel. The hotel's lobbies and facilities were very nice and gave the hotel some character that seemed to be missing from some of the other hotels that were in the area. The pool was fairly small but with the beach right there we didn't find that to be much of an issue. The rooms themselves were clean but fairly average with the bedding and linens in need of an update. Our room had a nice balcony that looked out onto the beach which was a big plus in the mornings and evenings. There were a good amount of decent restaurants close by and plenty of places to grab a drink right on the beach. The hotel was about a five euro cab ride from the train station and old town Cadiz."

"This hotel is right beside the lovely Victoria beach. It's a 40 minute walk to the old town along by the beach. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast was fine. Lots of bars round about for late night tapas. The hotel's underground car park costs 12 euros a night."

"Granted, they gave us a very pleasant junior suite when we called in late at night in an emergency situation. The pleasure of this, however, was marred by the MOST UNPLEASANT STAFF EVER ENCOUNTERED (except for the night porter on duty upon our arrival at midnight 10/11 September!). So, if you're looking for "service" or "politeness", to say the least, you'd be better off choosing another hotel..."
