We stayed at the Hotel Bandolero for three nights in October of 2013. It was a delightful experience. The rooms were clean and well maintained and the restaurant was absolutely splendid. Davis runs the hotel very efficiently and is a cordial, friendly host. Ivan is, simply put, a superb chef. This was one of the very best experiences we enjoyed... More

We stayed four nights in Hotel Bandolero, what a treat that was. David provided information and maps of the region as needed. Every time we stopped in the bar, there was the possibility of something tasty to eat as Ivan seemed always to be preparing some delicacy. Both David and Ivan were friendly hosts, we felt immediately comfortable. Our first... More

Arriving in Juzcar, the hotel is the first building you encounter, directly across the street from the tourist information kiosk. The entire village is painted blue, but the gorgeous flowers of the hotel patio and a hand-painted wall that reads Hotel Pitufo (apparently pitufo is Spanish for smurf) make it obvious that you've reached somewhere a little special. You really... More

Set in a beautiful area of mountains and valleys, Juzcar is quite a surprise when you first spot this "blue" village. After a walk around the village and a visit to the interesting tea rooms we were welcomed wholeheartedly by David at the Hotel Bandolero. As previous reviewers have said, the hotel is relatively new but has been constructed to... More

On our visit to Juzcar we made a point of stopping at the Hotel Bandolero for a snack. It was a Saturday and a very busy day. The waiting staff were working non stop but everyone was looked after and the food was simply delicious. Would definitely go back again.

What a wonderful place in the mountains of Andalucia. I wish we'd been able to stay longer, but we had to move on to the house we rented in Ronda. The food was out of this world - we drove back from Ronda for dinner one night, and our group of 4 feasted on Chef Ivan's celebrated suckling pig, which... More

I visited Juzcar for the day with a group from Benalmadena, organised by the Foreign Residents' Department. Our guide to the village (and later fantastic chef) was so friendly and helpful, as were all the staff at Hotel Bandolero where we enjoyed lunch - good food typical of the region.

Stayed one night to looked at the Smurf town and would have stayed anywhere clean. To our surprise we found the jewel of the town: the Bandero hotel. At the east entry of this 100+sole blue village. Beautiful view of the valley, great balcony, large rooms, old look but recent construction, all the comodities, excellent hosts, great info package, great... More

This place gets full marks. It was the most relaxing, comfortable and agreeable place I stayed in during my trip to Andalucia. The glorious heat, the mountains with their deeply wooded valleys and the hospitality of David and Ivan made this the perfect place to stay (I wish we had booked for longer). The hotel itself was quirky, intriguing -... More

The best part of this small hotel is the very helpful hosts. They had loads of well organized material of really interesting things to do and restaurant suggestions in the area. They even gave us a list of some of their favorite restaurants for when we moved on to Seville. The food was great at the hotel also-we ate there... More
