We've stayed here three times now, but last night was the best - in Room No. 3, where General de Gaulle stayed and wrote his memoirs. We sat in front of our own open fire in the bedroom, relaxing before dinner - really nice. It's such a lovely place to stay, somewhat quirky but that adds to the charm. The... More

We have now seen the New Year in on three occasions at this wonderful former hunting lodge set in the mountains above Marbella. Although, the bedrooms are old fashioned that is part of its charm with wood fires and comfortable armchairs. It is run as a co-operative by the staff, who are welcoming and effficent. The food is simple but... More

The Refugio is reached by taking a well signposted minor road, off the A355, the Coin/Marbella road; at 780 meters (about 2,500 feet) above sea level, it stands in splendid isolation. It is far enough away from the haunts of the wealthy and the not so wealthy expats to make you feel out in the wild, but close enough for... More

Quite pricey perhaps because of the location which is up in the mountains and in the middle of the wood. Silence and nice atmosphere Went for a family reunion with our Spanish extended family. Would recommend the mixed grill which is more than enough for 2 people

We found the hotel, almost by accident, a couple of months ago, stayed for lunch and decided that we'de like to go back and stay. It was a delight. It's wonderfully quiet (just the sound of the birds), super food - full menu or snacks, lovely little bar and very personal and attentive service. Just outside the hotel, a short... More

What a place in which to go hide away! Knockout honeymoon or romantic getaway spot. Scary, beautiful 2 lane road from Marbella that winds around the mountains. Up, up, up until you see the clouds covering the seascape below. Then, after the turnoff, more miles through silent pine forests with sun-dappled branches. Twists, turns, until you finally reach your destination:... More

We booked into this lovely hotel after having lunch in it earlier in the week. The area is charming and was a very peaceful experience.

For nearly 30 years we have been regular vistors to this undiscovered gem set in the Sierra Blanca only 30 minutes from the centre of Marbella. This former regional parador is in the middle of a national park close to the start of excellent sign posted walks through the mountains. The restaurant serves regional specialities, game, beef, lamb and fish... More

We have popped into the hotel for a coffee previously, a couple of years ago, and there was certainly a sense of history about the place, random ornaments in the main reception area gave a welcoming feeling. We decided to book a night there to take advantage of the great walking/hiking nearby, and paid approx 60 euros which seemed fair... More

We drove up to this charming hunting lodge to go hiking. The drive there alone was worth it, as the road is excellent and takes you through a beautiful landscape and past some interesting ceramics workshops (make a stop there). The lodge is located in the middle of a forest and is surrounded by wild chestnut trees. Several people were... More
