About the 4* Utopia

This establishment is more than a hotel, more than a hostelry and more than a museum: it is a town within a town. Evoking the thirties and set amid gardens, patios and terraces facing the "Alcornocales" nature reserve, the family friendly hotel is an amazing maze of small old houses, which offers outstanding cultural and leisure options. The hotel is set back in time, where forgetfulness and memory meet the thirties; one of the more exciting periods of the 20th Century. It is an absolute must for those travelling to Cádiz, as it offers the opportunity to discover the beautiful south. The fully air-conditioned hotel comprises a total of 16 rooms, and facilities include: a lobby with 24-hour reception, a hotel safe, a cloakroom, a café, a bar, a theatre, a restaurant, conference facilities and Internet access. Room and laundry service are available for a charge. There is also a garage available (fees apply).

This city hotel is located in the southern half of the province of Cadiz, in the centre of the "La Janda" region. It is a strategic enclave located in the middle of nature, yet less than half an hour from the best beach in Cadiz. From the top of "Grullas"", next to the small lake, guests can contemplate the valley formed by the Barbate River and the "Los Arcornocales" mountain range. In this area guests will find various characteristic tree species and wild animals such as eagles, boars and deer. In the "Tajo de las Figuras" guests can see pre-historic cave paintings and archaeological discoveries. "Tajo de las Figuras" is the most important cave group in southern Spain due to the number, quality and the variety of cave paintings which were discovered there. The area is a perfect combination of nature and sport, mountain and sea, and relaxation and culture.
