We have just returned from a short break to El Cielo de Canar - it was a very special place and we already wish we were back there. The rooms are very well appointed and spotlessly clean and the terrace is the perfect place for a relaxed drink before supper. John and Orna looked after us very well and we... More

I cannot speak highly enough of our time - in October 2014 - at El Cielo de Canar . We stayed for almost one week to unwind from our hectic travels in France. Orna and John excelled themselves meeting our needs. John had many helpful tips for walking in the Alpujarras, and the best cafes and sights in the area.... More

El Cielo was the highlight of our trip. Really nothing to add to the other positive reviews. Its all true! John and Orna are the perfect hosts. The location is superb. You feel relaxed as soon as you enter the gates. Come out of your room at 3am and see if you can count the stars.

Can't speak highly enough of this stunning hotel and it's owners! John and Orna went out of their way to make it a memorable break. They even presented us with a lovely bottle of Cava after a successful proposal on the terrace overlooking the glorious countryside! Orna's tapas were just lovely and I also recommend bar Piqui in the local... More

We arrived at El Cielo de Canar on a day of dense fog and driving up from Orgiva was an adventure in itself. And as the fog lifted we were delighted by the amazing views. John was charming and kind, with nothing being too much trouble, even the request for an indigestion remedy on Sunday evening! Our room was more... More

We would go back in a heartbeat! When I read all of the reviews before booking this hotel, I was actually skeptical because they were all SO good. I had heard that some hotels pay people to write good reviews and wondered if that was perhaps true for El Cielo de Canar. But that was not the case. The reviews... More

This is just the most fantastic hotel in the world. God I wish I was still there! Everything is amazing, from the food, to the incredibly kind and helpful hosts John and Orna, to the beautiful rooms, to the sensational view, to the abundant orchards, to the lovely pool, to the magical setting of the Alpujarras. You need to go... More

The location of El Cielo is spectacular but matched by the phenomenal way John and Orna look after their guests. Nothing is too much trouble! Orna's food, esp. her tapas, is fantastic. Breakfast included some fresh fruit from John's trees every morning. Try the figs! Be prepared to walk. The area is crisscrossed with trails for young or old -... More

We spend two days at El Cielo de Canar in may 2013. What a beaufiful place. We were welcomed by the dogs and John and Orna with a cold beer. The room was so beautiful, with a great bed. We really felt at home! Nice breakfast and nothing is too much trouble for John and Orna, they even picked us... More

With a six-week sabbatical from a work, I decided to do a solo tour of Andalucia, finishing up in Granada province, and the peace and quiet of El Cielo de Canar for 3 nights. What a perfect end to a fantastic experience - John and Orna are excellent hosts; nothing is too much trouble - even providing a full breakfast... More
