We never expected that we would find a paradise in the middle of Spain! We had one week of the most unforgettable stay at Los Castanos. We were welcomed by Di and John who were gracious, kind hosts, full of knowledge of history of the country. The interior of the hotel was decorated with Di's collections of artifacts, our bedroom...

Hotel Los Castanos isn't a Hotel, it is a beautiful home shared with the guests. The house is built and furnished in very esthetic manner , each room is a masterpiece. The owners DI and John are very nice intelligent couple that are doing their best to make the guests feel comfortable and enjoy the stay. The cost is a... More

I've now stayed at Los Castanos three times and can't say enough good things about it! ...Where to start? Situated in Cartejima, one of the tiny white historic villages of Southern Spain, Los Castanos is a refuge from the Costa del Sol's jet setting madness. Di and John ( our gracious hosts) are experts on the history of the region... More

We only stayed one night, but I want to go back! My friend and I were on a self-guided hiking trek. We arrived soggy, and a bit out of sorts. But the lovely inn, and friendly innkeepers, Di and John, soon made us feel comfortable and very content. The delicious dinner was prepared by Di, and served family style to... More

Staying two nights was not enough! We were pleased with the quality of the accommodations, the rooftop deck was delightful. Every possible need was anticipated, so that we had a most relaxing experience. With a backdrop of lovely ethnic furnishings in their hotel, Di and John are very knowledgeable about the area, anxious to share their thoughts in helpful ways,... More

We loved staying with Di and her partner. We were there for three nights and felt it was a great break from the busy sunshine coast.The location is unique - very quiet and in a typical Spanish mountain village. It is a short drive to Ronda (about 20-30minutes), which is definitely worth a visit. We also went for hikes to... More

My husband and I spent 4 lovely days at this very special hotel with a difference. It's more like being guests in the home of Di and John. The building, in one of the prettiest of the "white villages" in a spectacular mountain landscape, is beautifully decorated, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Breakfasts were excellent, and usually involved chatting... More

Even a wet day couldn't dampen our overnight stay at Los Castanos. Di and John run an extremely clean, comfortable hotel and served us an excellent evening meal and breakfast in the best of surroundings. Came away relaxed and very pleased with our choice. Highly recommend.

Di & John have not forgotten anything. We were thoroughly impressed with the property and their service and attention to detail. In addition to their help we were impressed with their "stand in helper" Carmen, she was friendly and always wore a smile. As far as food service we opted to eat some meals in and a few elsewhere in... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here after visiting Barcelona and Granada. I had initially planned on staying in Ronda but on the recommendation of a friend we found our way to Los Castanos. This was a great decision as we really got to relax and recharge our batteries. The hotel is located in a small mountain village about... More
