Hotel Los Castanos in Cartajema is one of the finest hotels I have stayed in. The whole experience is exceptional and our hosts Di Beach and John could not have been more welcoming and helpful. If you are looking for a holiday in a beautifully situated and tranquil setting this is the place.

The welcome is genuine and warm, and the atmosphere of peace is instantly relaxing. I love the simple clean lines of the hotel decor, and how each bedroom has one of everything you need without being cluttered. The views are astounding, with the roof terrace a clear winner; it proved a perfect spot to unwind after a day walking and... More

Right from the start you are made to feel welcome and Di's cooking is so delicious, and a good selection of wines is there to wash it down. Very comfortable rooms, with air con, a fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities. Depending on your choice of... More

Di and John made us feel welcome from the moment we booked and it did not ever stop up to the moment 5 days later that we had to drag ourselves back to a rainy Gatwick.

Had a lovely stay here.......a stunning drive through fabulous scenery. Dinner was excellent...really delicious..thanks Di. Good quality wines too. Our room was large with a dual aspect & wonderful view across Cartajima. Good quality linens, bath robes & toiletries. A very comfortable stay... and so wonderfully peaceful & quiet.

As all the reviews are so good and it's at the moment the number one of all hotels in Andalusia, we went there with our expectations. We spent two (rainy) days at the hotel, we spent the most time at the hotel inside. Because there was no sun and just clouds, we weren't blinded by the beautiful sourroundings. I guess... More

Los Castanos is a wonderful retreat situated in gorgeous mountains near Ronda -- a much welcome dose of nature after the hectic pace of Seville. Di and John are the ultimate hosts. Nothing was too much trouble -- they provided us with excellent food and wine, insightful tips on everything from hiking routes to tapas bars and hotels in Ronda.... More
