We are so pleased that you are here, we are Beatriz & Sean. I am from California and Beatriz is from Palencia, in the north of Spain. We both love travelling and first met adventuring on the East coast of the United States. After living a few of years in San Francisco, we came to Spain for “a couple of years”. As fortune would have it, we discovered the south of Spain and started Hotel Tikar.
We would love to have you come stay with us.

(Translated by Google) Nice and cozy place, decorated with great taste. Near the beach, in a quiet area. The room has a small living room at the entrance. Breakfast is correct. The garden, a delight. But above all, the service and treatment, charming. To repeat. (Original) Sitio agradable y acogedor, decorado con mucho gusto. Cerca de la playa, en una zona tranquila. La habitación tiene un pequeño salón a la entrada. El desayuno es correcto. El jardín, una delicia. Pero sobre todo, el servicio y el trato, encantadores. Para repetir.Provi SánchezOctober 17, 2023

Been visiting Restaurante Azul since 2006, never had a bad meal and always received excellent service. The garden setting is tranquil and the tables well positioned. Equally, the inside eating area is a lovely place to dine when the weather becomes more inclement. Back in 2006 also stayed for over a week as a hotel guest, treated warmly by everyone (both owners and staff). As the owners haven't changed since I first crossed the threshold of the Tikar I can only praise them for constantly maintaining their standards over such a long period of time. Keep up the great work.Julie O'DonnellSeptember 10, 2023

Just outside Garrucha you could easily miss it driving by. A must to eat here where you receive a warm welcome from Sean and his wife. A native American who now lives in Spain. Sean is wine connoisseur who has a wine shop in the hotel/restaurant. The restaurant is tasteful decorated and very nice. We usually eat outside in the garden which has a banana tree and small pool. The food is delicious and a must to eat here. There are music nights and wine tours organised by Sean too. I recommend the seafood chowder as a starter. We have eaten here a few times now and look forward to more. We've not stayed in the hotel though. It's worth booking!David BrimsonSeptember 8, 2023

(Translated by Google) The other day we had a meeting with friends and we went to eat at the Azul restaurant. The menu of the day is delicious, I personally had trouble deciding between the different dishes, all with an interesting point. Furthermore, the place is beautiful and the treatment exceptional. Highly recommended (Original) El otro día tuvimos una reunión de amigas y fuimos a comer al restaurante Azul. El menú del día es delicioso, personalmente tuve problemas para decidirme entre los diferentes platos, todos con un punto interesante.

(Translated by Google) Through some reviews on Google we decided to go to eat after a day of the market. A holiday classic. The restaurant is very well decorated and the background music helps you not raise the tone and listen to jazz. The tablecloth and cloth napkins and change of cutlery between courses. Food, menu of the day. Well presented. The cheek, tender and the carrot cake delicious. Those in charge of the restaurant are the ones who serve the tables. Kind to their clients. Anecdote, bread also exists. The bill, on a plate or tray too. We will be back. (Original) A través de unas reseñas en Google decidimos ir a comer, después de día de mercadillo. Un clásico de vacaciones. El restaurante, muy bien decorado y la música de fondo acompaña a no subir el tono y escuchar jazz. El mantel y las servilletas de tela y cambio de cubiertos entre platos. Comida, menú del día. Bien presentado. La carrillada, tierna y la tarta de zanahoria deliciosa. Son los responsables del restaurante los que atienden las mesas. Amables con sus clientes. Anécdota, el pan también existe. La cuenta, en un plato o bandeja también. Volveremos.RafaelAugust 11, 2023
