When do you have the chance to sleep in a 500 year old building where once Franciscan monks lived and Christopher Columbus waited for Queen Isabella to open her coffers for his expedition to discover America. It’s quite an experience to walk and sleep between such history laden walls. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms marvellous with their marble floors,... More

Though only listed as a 3 star, we found this hotel better than the 4 star hotels we stayed in in Cordoba and Seville. Lovely courtyards, spacious rooms, dining indoors and outdoors, copious buffet breakfast and a nice pool in a garden.

If you have had breakfast at this place paying 10.00 Euros per person you will know why the Monks left for a better pasture. The Breakfast table contains nothing. Few slices of a dried bread several days old, Cold coffee and warm juice and milk. Few slices of one cheese and ham from a pre-packed supermarket package and that´s it.... More

A truly WONDERFUL PLACE to visit and see Spanish past glory that only the elite could afford in times past! A beautifully renovated Monastery, now a Hotel with manicured gardens (now "missing" a few Oranges and Grapefruits which "fell into... my pockets!) renovated dining areas to their Old World charm, excellent Spanish food with wide menu & wine list, most...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. We had room 13 which is its own wing on the second floor. The bathroom is very large and beautiful with walk-in shower and jetted tub. The room also is very large and beautiful with a huge King sized bed. The TV is an old small tube TV, but you are not really... More

We loved this building - it has been converted without losing the feel of a religious house. The bedroom we had was huge with a great bathroom overlooking the gardens. The 30 metre pool was fab and in a beautiful setting! From the aerial shots it looks like its surrounded by the town - which it is, but once inside... More

As this hotel is just 2 hours drive from where we live, we could hardly refuse to take advantage of their special offer of dinner, bed & breakfast for two people for just €65. The building is impressive and retains the aura and many of the original features of the monastery it once was. As an hotel, it succeeds in... More

We were 2 couples on an overnight stay, with dinner, bed and breakfast, for a fantastic bargain of 65 euros per couple!! The reception was good, although it may have been so because we speak Spanish. Yes, it is a converted monastery, but that added to the ambience, and the food was excellent. it has to be said though, that... More

We had a very poor reception from the staff on arrival, and were not shown to our room. I went back to the reception and asked for better directions and got another grunt. After finding the room we felt a little disappointed, A/C that barely worked, dark and drab. We decided to make the most of things, I went back... More

We were on a cycling tour through southern Spain. As a group we enjoy " different" accommodations. This did not disappoint...spacious rooms, friendly staff. We caught the flavor of the area thanks to the working class/everyman town, PALMA DEL RIO. Traveling luck landed us in a bar/ restaurant that was hosting a bachelorette party on a Saturday night complete with... More
