How was your accommodation in Sancti Petri, Cádiz?

Type: ApartHotel
Name: Las Dunas Apartahotel

How was the accommodation for the children?:

It was awesome. What I really loved about this hotel is that all the areas around the swimming pools, are not made of cement, such as in many other resorts, but they were grass areas. That way, babies can crawl without harming their knees. Is is very comfortable for them. The resort had loads of spaces with shade, which is so necessary when you have babies and children of a young age, especially in the South of Spain, where it is so sunny. There was a playground for children, and a football court for them. There are three swimming pools, and a little one for babies. The water temperature was really nice, and that is something you don't find in other resorts, where the water is so cold they really suffer when you enter the pool, and the kids can't enjoy it for a reasonable time.

The hotel has apartments with a master bedroom with kingsize bed, and a living room with a sofabed where two kids can sleep. You can also ask for an extra bed, as well as cribs if needed. After dinners you can enjoy the show of the day, that have something really good compared to other resorts. The place where the shows takes place is surrounded by gardens, and it is outdoors. Thay way, your kids can feel free to wander around you while you watch the show, without going out of your sight, and without disturbing other guests. That is impossible in shows that take place inside an auditorium.

Did you eat out with your children in Sancti Petri, Cádiz?

We ate at the hotel, and it had typical food for children such as pasta, chicken (cooked in many ways), hamburgers, sausages, croquetas etc…. No kids menu, but loads of food they use to enjoy. The meals are served in a restaurant where you have a buffet, and live kitchen where they cook fresh fish, meat, seafood, etc. There is a pianist playing while you are having lunch or dinner.

The hotel had a pizza service to be served in the room. It included not only pizza, but also pasta, salads, kebabs, fried potatoes, chicken fingers, etc.

Are there things to do for the children in Sancti Petri, Cádiz?

The hotel does not have any activity for children included, other than those the entertainment team organize every day in the swimming pools. The strong point of the hotel is the excellent location. The hotel has direct access to the beach through a door which only hotel guests can open with a key they give you when you do the check in.

Any other things you think parents should know about Sancti Petri, Cádiz?

There is a commercial area near the hotel with a big supermarket, shops, pharmacy, and places with information of activities for tourists in Sancti Petri, and surrounding areas.

In the hotel, there is also a small supermarket where you can buy all kind of stuff, and food to cook in the apartment if you wish to do it. Apartments have a little kitchen, with a fridge, cooking utensiles, coffee machine, etc.

There is also a little shop in the hotel where you can buy magazines, books (in English also), newspapers, and all kind of things such as air beds, goggles, sun lotion, beach balls, etc.
