Nice rooms, a garden with pool and resident Nightingale serenading our al fresco dinners ( delicious!). Lucy and Angel are great hosts - friendly and informative. Try Angels olive oil , sherry and Iberian ham tasting - delicious and very interesting. Alajar village is also wonderful and felt like a cool paradise after braving Sevilla in 43 degrees! Thanks and... More

We stayed here for two nights while on a walking holiday. It is a no frills hotel but everything worked as it should and our room was clean and comfortable. We were invited to use the swimming pool at the Posada San Marco nearby which also had a garden where we could relax. We particularly enjoyed watching Angel lovingly carving... More

We stayed in La Posada de SanMarco for 3 nights whilst on a walking holiday with friends. We found extremely helpful, friendly and polite people, who serve only local produce. The area around is very good for walking, either prearranged or with excellent advice from Angelo and Lucy. I would recommend a stay here in this lovely, quiet Spanish village.

It is always with some trepidation when you arrive at a hotel in an area you know nothing about, having 'found'the hotel online. We needn't have worried. The village of Alajar is a gem and La Posada was super. I would definitely recommend it to friends, it is a no frills hotel but the price reflect that, it has a... More

Stayed here for one night while walking around the beautiful Sierra de Aracena for TheUntravelledWorld. Both the hotel and my room were small and rustic and suited my needs perfectly for €40. An excellent breakfast was served for an additional €5 at the twin establishment, La Posada de San Marcos, a few minutes walk away. The owners were very knowledgeable... More

This is the third time that I have stayed at this hotel .It is located in the centre of this lovely village. It oozes rustic charm and is full of local character. The rooms are more than adequate and the hotel is always spotlessly clean. Breakfast is a simple affair and relies heavily on local produce. It is possible to... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting much of Andalusia throughout the last 4 years. La Posada de Alajar ranks at the top of my list in several categories. Accommodations: Incredible attention to detail using local, nature-based products. You feel like you're at home and feel so relaxed and comfortable you don't want to leave. My room was on the ground... More

Really cannot understand such good reviews of this hotel. Can only think they didn't stay on the ground floor, as when staying there you could even hear the nuts being cracked at breakfast, there was no chance of a relaxing lie in.

We found Alajar, and La Posada quite by chance, having taken a detour through the hills around Aracena. Despite having a slightly 'quirky' room in the attic (we hadn't booked and I think it was the last available), La Posada is a lovely palce to stay. The lovely owners made a real effort to make us welcome, and even suggested... More
