Venue and Tariff

The 4* Iberostar Royal Andalus is situated in Chiclana de la Frontera in the province of Cadiz. The hotel is located on the beautiful 6 kilometre long Barrosa beach with an on site golf course. There is plenty to see and do in Chiclana with many shops, cafes and restaurants.

The nearby city of Cadiz, capital of the province of the same name, is situated in the southwest of Andalucia and is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets. Cadiz has been a seafaring, trading town for more than 3,000 years, in fact it is the oldest city on record in western Europe. Visitors to Cadiz always fall in love with the city, which combines a rich cultural heritage with an upbeat, friendly ambience. The city stands on a peninsula jutting out into a bay, which is almost entirely surrounded by water. Ascend to the top of the city’s cathedral and you will almost feel like you are standing on the stern of a boat, all you can see is water. The old city is distinctly Moorish in appearance and a gem to explore with its narrow cobbled streets, beautiful plazas, fabulous fish market and numerous tapas bars. There will be half day excursions available to book at the welcome meeting to Cadiz and Jerez and also a full day excursion to Seville.
