Wonderful place in the heart of the historic town of Tarifa. We stayed there at the beginning of November and was very quiet. Our suite was cozy and every detail of the furniture perfect arranged. Double bed more than comfortable. Wifi very fast. I didn't know personally Marta but she was very friendly at the phone and check in was very easy. I will recommend Riad Lolita!

A lovely decorated and nice-furnished house located in charming old town of Tarifa. Martha was very nice and helpful-she served every inquiry very fast. If you are seeking for a stay nearby nice Restaurants and Bars you should definitely stay at Riad Lolita. However, noises are unavoidable and therefore I was glad to have some ear plugs with me. :) Finally, the roof top terrace is stunning!! A perfect place to relax, have a glass of wine or to enjoy the wonderful view to Africa.

We stayed at one of the ground suites which was very spacious and at the same time cozy. Great location, right in the old town. Walking distance to all the hot spots and beach. Great place to rest and relax!

Riad Lolita is really THE place to stay at when you are in tarifa. It's the most beautiful Riad freshly renovated and super stylish and arty equipped but not in a way that makes you feel like your in an art gallery or an expo for interior design but in a way that is really warm and cosy and makes you feel at home instantly. The common areas like the kitchen, the chillout area and the roof terrace are equipped to fulfill all your needs and you really feel free to move around the whole house and explore it. : ) if there is even one thing you can pick out as highlight since the whole place is a highlight it's the roof terrace with a great view over Tarifas old town (since it is located in the heart of the old town) and the harbour and many inviting possibilities to sit or lay down, sun bath or just chill, have breakfast, lunch or a wine at sunset. We were warmly welcomed by Marta who showed us around the place and was there for us whenever we needed anything since Pia and Cat were out of town. The day we arrived we made contact with our neighbors and the next day we had a beer and inspiring talk on the roof terrace at sunset: that's how fast you make new friends at Riad Lolita! ; ) it was really hard for us to leave this place and if we ever come back to Tarifa we will without a doubt stay there again.

We met Pia when as we arrived and she was super cool ! The location was beautiful as described. We enjoyed very much our stay in the Riad and the neighborhood. The House is in the Middle of the ancient walled-city and if you go up to the rooftop you can really see how beautiful Tarifa is and you can also see the skyline of the Moroccan coast. Thanks girls, see u definitively soon! ;) Xxx

I just LOVE Tarifa! For its beaches, crazy mix of people, its Andalucian natural beauty, its ability to combine traditional with cosmopolitan...there is just no other place in Europe like Tarifa. In fact it does not feel like Europe at all, the fact is that Morocco and a whole other continent is just 30 minutes away!

Tarifa offers an incredible lifestyle. There are the water sports, horse riding on the 14 km of stunning white sandy beaches or in the countryside, rock climbing, mountain biking... the rich local culture.. the tapas, the delicious cafe con leche.

Possibly the best of all, and for what this coastline is best known for is the light and the sunsets.

I feel incredibly blessed to live in this magnificent place.

Tarifa is not for the typical Costa del Sol tourist or the sunbather, it is well known for the excellent wind conditions for kiting and windsurfing. This can prohibit lying not the beach for it is much like a full-body exfoliation!

Spring and Autumn are wonderful times to be here, but August is also great fun when the quantity of tourist congest the fabulous Tarifeno infrastructure and there are long queues on the roads.. but if you are after a good vibe, great night life this is your place..In August Tarifa converts into a mini Ibiza in August...

I think Tarifa offers the best of Spain...and we hope that you will come and see for yourself!!!
