If you have the time then I highly recommend spending at least a night in Jerez so that you can really appreciate the town and its surroundings. I came across two excellent budget friendly guest houses with good rates, and wish now that I had spent longer here.
Hotel Posada Sta. Cecilia, Constitucion No. 4, Tel: 01 (494) 9452412. This centrally located budget hotel had a dozen or so great value rooms with cable TV. Its cheerful colourful interior, with nicely furnished rooms, welcoming staff and excellent rates make it worth spending a night. Their current rates were 200 + 250 Peso for 1 or 2 persons, but they immediately knocked 50 Peso off when I asked for a bit of discount. It’s impossible to pick a fault at these prices.
Hotel Del Santuario, Santuario No. 27, Tel: 01 (494) 9456194. This small hotel with only eight rooms was another excellent budget place to stay. The cheerful looking en-suite rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and come with cable TV, plenty of furniture and reading lamps. Their current rates are 150, 200, 250 +300 Peso for 1, 2, 3 or 4 persons. Excellent value for money!
