Our hosts (Merche/Pepe) were so helpful, we got lost getting there so we rang them and they were on their way to pick us up.Adding to that they took us for a tour of some highlights of San Jose which was spectacular. Very knowledgeable and so friendly welcoming us to their house and country.The villa we stayed in had everything you needed and it felt like home
Merce and Pepe made us feel very welcome, they gave us advice about local places to visit and where to eat. The days began with a smile and a delicious fresh breakfast on the terrace. Use of the terrace, jacuzzi and pool with views of the mountains. A fabulous place and cosy rooms decorated with good taste. A short distance from the city and the beach, it is an ideal base for everything that the natural park of Cabo de Gata has to offer. Highly recommended.
It’s not just ‘another hotel’ in Cabo de Gata. We knew what type of service we would get (we recommended it by friends0.. And the result was even better than we could have imagined. Only 3 rooms (complete: air conditioning, large bathroom, ceiling fan, dressing room, fridge, towels etc) our room also had a large private terrace (to wake up surrounded by mountains and to see the stars before going to bed was a luxury). The communal areas (pool, jacuzzi, dining terrace) are delightful. And what makes Agua Marina different is to share the ‘roof’ with the hosts, Merche and Pepe. 100% at the service of their guests with infinite kindness; what’s the best beach depending on the wind, where to eat (simple, chic, elegant, cheap, expensive, fashionable, etc) where to find adventure, snorkel, what to visit, local products, recipes etc etc.. They live there, share the communal areas and obviously have other private areas. But even more to their credit is that they know how to give each guest the degree of proximity with which he is most comfortable. From sharing a delicious and hearty barbecue with them and other guests and at the same time knowing when to maintain a polite distance from guests seeking a bit more privacy. It’s situated on the outskirts of San Jose, barely 1.5km away from the beach, although it is common to drive to the endless beaches in the area. As well as providing breakfast, they offer to make other food – beach picnic, dinner or even a barbeque if you give them 24 hours notice and for a reasonable price. I hope we can return but without a doubt, I will also recommend it to friends who are keen to enjoy this beautiful part of Spain
I have been to Agua Marina and I give it a 10 in everything. The house was very clean, perfect facilities (especially the jacuzzi at 36 degrees). Merche and Pepe are perfect hosts, you feel that you’re at an old friend’s house. Highly recommended and a visit well worth repeating
I had an amazing 15 day stay at Merche and Pepe, their home is beautiful and very well located quietly with incredible views of the mountains and close to the seaside and all amenities, very clean and decorated with a lot care and taste. Merche and Pepe are very friendly and welcoming people and take good care of their guests. I highly recommend to all travelers who pass through San Jose, to stay at their home. It was a very nice experience for me. And THANK YOU again for your warm welcome
A perfect place to stay, everything is impeccable and with great attention to detail. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel very comfortable and at home. Everything was perfect, we will definitely come back;-) 100% recommended
Everything was perfect. They have thought of everything that you could need and it is all there at your disposal. EVERYTHING is of very high quality (breakfast, room, bathroom…). It is one of the few places I have been where I have found no room for improvement
From the beginning, we felt at home thanks to Merche and Pepe. His philosophy of life is reflected in the house and we loved it. It has all the amenities you will need and they are full of recommendations for places to visit. The breakfast was very good and the photos of the house are very true to reality. A very quiet place to disconnect. We hope to return!
We loved everything! Starting with the owners Merche and Pepe, who are charming and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and at home at all times. The location is very good for getting to places of interest and visiting coves in the park. The setting is great. 10 out of 10 for cleanliness, comfort and decoration of every corner of the house. The communal areas are very well maintained and you can make full use of the pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast is lavish, very tasty and adapted to the individual. All the other services on offer are great if you plan to spend a few days in the area (picnic hampers, supper, laundry…)
The house was beautiful. I loved the decor. Everything was very well looked after and in good condition. The attention from the hosts was second to none. They were always ready to help with anything and took a keen interest in the welfare of their guests. I would recommend it 100%
