We loved this hotel. We were given a lovely family room with two rooms with independent air-conditioning. The lady that was in reception was very very helpful and very nice. Clean and well decorated. It is relatively pricey but it was the high season and the breakfast was quite good as well

This wonderful hotel is only different in its design layout. A cross between a Spanish pueblo and a working ranch. All set out in a single storey complex it exudes space and privacy. Helpful,efficient staff. All the rooms are of spacious suite proportions, each having their own private terrace area.Combine this with the excellent restaurant specialising in local and regional...

Stayed one night with party of friends. Accommodation clean and comfortable. Food good and provided meat alternative for my vegetarian wife. Stayed in one of the outside blocks by the car park which was very convenient. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Slightly outside town, but still within walking distance. Would stay again.

Booked this lovely looking place on October 4th, 2014 via website booking.com. Myself and my boyfriend were on a road trip and were traveling that day from Malaga. Although we booked on the same day (estimated travel time 9 hours), saved hotel's contact details, saved the enclosed map (that obviously will show nearby locations only), we never were able to...

What a terrible shame there seems to be no-one looking after the Cortijo el Sotillo! The pool was a lovely area and very clean, as were the rooms. However, the bread was dry for breakfast, the orange juice processed, and the welcome non-existent. Why couldn't the two girls in the dining room open the terrace, rather than the guests being...

We had been wanting to visit Cabo de Gata natural park for some time. We chose San Jose as the place to stay because it was on... More
