Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Grande Jerez De La Frontera
What can we say? Arrived to torrential rain, but this certainly didn't dampen our spirits! Monika is fabulous..very helpful and dedicated to what she does, but also very funny!. We ate the first and second night at El Patio...a great Spanish restaurant just 5 minutes from hotel and well worth a visit (recommended by Monika and quite rightly so). We had our tickets to the flamingo show booked for us by Monika...having travelled around Spain I had never wished to see a "commercial" flamingo...this was very traditional and I promise you..well worth a visit. We went to the Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre. (Once again booked by Monika..front row well worth being there). Only on thursdays (12.00) at this time of the year, but if you have any interest in horses and traditions it's a "must see", worth every euro of the 2 hour show. When we left the Sandemans bodega was in view and situated in the road behind so we paid them a visit and had a great time(only a few of us on the tour so it may not be that great when the numbers are higher!) Out of there into a terrific cloud burst...constant rain from then on until 2 days later!. Never mind, lots of great tapas bars..locals are very helpful but little English spoken (I loved that but it will not suit all). Brightened up on sat so we went by bus to Arcos (white village) worth the visit. Went to Cadiz on sunday by train (easy journey) They had lots of stalls selling fresh oysters/ sea urchins. Interesting place but a complete maze once you enter the town (get a map from tourist information...it's necessary!). Went to the camera obscura which is very interesting on a clear day. As the weather had cleared we visited the camera obscura in Jerez on monday..in a beautiful setting and much more enjoyable than Cadiz..glad we did it this way around.Bar 27 (Robert De Niro look alike!) is a great little bar to visit across the square outside the hotel. Tapas and rioja very good! Ask Monika...beleive me whatever she tells you will not disapoint and we know what we like!!!!! The Casa Grande is a great place to stay...to enjoy the traditions of Jerez where little Spanish is spoken, they will ensure you know what to do and where to go to enjoy this fabulous town!
An absolute gem!
Totally agree with the comments of other clients. Beautiful hotel, Monika, Lola and staff could not be more helpful.
Rooms are comfortable and spotless as well as being bright, airy and spacious; position of hotel in relation to the sights is excellent; breakfast delightful; roof terrace, even in February, was a definite bonus!
Worth a Trip to Jerez!
Casa Grande is a terrific small hotel with charm and personalized service. A very nice renovation of a former private mansion, it's located within walking distance of most of the main sights in town. Our room was large and comfortable and the bath modern. The breakfast buffet, served in the attractive breakfast room or atrium, is outstanding and you can even request eggs cooked to order. The owner, Monika, is most helpful and gives excellent advice on the best bodegas, tapas bars, flamenco shows, etc. This is the kind of hotel you dream of finding in every city you visit.
Superb hotel, we booked this hotel for 4 nights so we could use Jerez as a base for the 200 years of Trafalger celebrations in October and we couldn't have asked for a better hotel.
The owner, Monica, couldn't be more helpful she bent over backwards to help with any questions or problems we had. She even posted on an item we had forgot to pack, to the next hotel we went to!
The hotel itself is based around an open air central courtyard in the old morrish style with the rooms on 2 stories radiating off.
There is also a roof garden for sun bathing and views out over the city.
Our room was on the from corner and had 3 balconies looking out on to a beautiful town square.
The rooms are spotless and well maintained and come with aircon and TV as well as a very modern bathroom with bath and shower combined.
Jerez itself it a beautiful town,we can recommend the camera obsurer in the fortress, which gives some lovely views of the city with a very informative guide to talk you through the places of interest.
We can also recommend the Gorilla bar that has 5 different beers on draft and serves good simple food.
To sum up, if you want an old world style hotel run by people who really care about what they do then this is the place for you.
If you want to see a different side of Spain from the Costas then give Jerez a try!
We were delighted by this small. atmospheric hotel set in a lovely square in the heart of Jerez. We have stayed in many similarly appointed hotels in the past but this one stnds out for one reason - the outstanding hospitality and customer care lavished on you from the moment you arrive. Nothing is too much trouble. In particular you should ask Monica to arrange a private bodega tour - excellent value and great fun.
Our room was fairly small and simply furnished and opened out onto a lovely inner courtyard, as do most of the rooms, so don't expect views from your room. However, it had the great advantage of being QUIET, something very hard to find in most Spanish cities. The roof terrace is also fairly unusual and a real bonus on a warm day. The only difficulty we experienced was in driving to the hotel. It was hard to find given the one-way system and extensive roadworks in the city. Parking is also difficult, but our excellent hosts also sorted that out for us and even stopped our car from being towed when we parked illegally! Now that really is good service.
Stayed at the Casa Grande for 3 nights.
Best value for money. The room was fantastic - clean and beautiful. The breakfast was superb and the service outstanding!
I would rate is as one of the best hotels I ever stayed in.
The hosts, Monica and Lola treat the guests like family. They also gave great recommendations for activities around Jerez. The roof terrace is very relaxing for siestas..i might go back to Jerez just to stay here again!
Very good address
Very central and very good rates. Rooms of different sizes and prices. All of them very clean and not too expensive. Very friendly people. My rate:
above the average to excellent.
My wife and I recently made a trip on vacation to Jerez de la Frontera in southern Spain. We had only intended on staying a couple days until we found the Hotel Casa Grande. We were certainly impressed with this small hotel located in the historical district of Jerez. The cleanliness of this hotel is impeccable. The owner and her staff did everything possible to make our stay in their hotel a most memorable experience. They simply could not do enough for us. We plan to return to Jerez next year on vacation and wil be staying at the Casa Grande!! We highly recommend this hotel! P.S. we had only intended on staying two days and ended up in the Casa Grande for 7 days. Love this hotel. Steve&Teresa in Jonesboro, GA.
we have just returned from a three night stay and the hotel was just delightful. Recently refurbished a mix of traditional and modern furnishings. Ultra modern spotlessly clean bathrooms...i am very fussy.
Breakfast was buffet style and just wonderful, cooked food was available.
The hotel is in walking distance of everything in Jerez and only ten minutes fron the train station.
Monica(the owner) was extremly helpful and the staff very attentive without being overbearing.
I dont think it will remin a three star rating for very long,it was nicer than 4 star i have stayed in.
We will return but will request a room at the rear of the building as we found the road at the front a little noisey.highly recommend it.
Gem of a hotel
Just returned from a weekend in Jerez staying at the Casa Grande. It s in a great central postion, close to great tapas bars, and public transport. The hotel is a real bargain, and Monika gives great advice on where to go and what to do. The attention to detail is second to none, so if you are looking for a reasonable, central , clean hotel then this is it and more- would really describe it as a boutique hotel with some great touches!

We walked all around the city next and found ourselves churros and sangria, which I was just informed is a total tourist drink. Awk. But we shopped and drank for the rest of the afternoon together, in total consuming about two liters of the delicious Spanish nectar all together (I regret saying it; just let it go). We got back to the ship around 5:00 and met the boys for dinner. We all got changed to go ...

Jerez de la Frontera is traditionally known as THE capital of sherry production in the world. As I like sherry, it was a good destination for a day's outing. We found so much more there that we couldn't take it all in, in one day.
