The location of the hotel is about a 20 minute drive from Puerto Banus. It's a road with beautifull sights over the lake. The hotel is good, a relaxing hotel with a nice swimming pool located in the sun in the afternoon. The breakfast was a bit poor. You pay 4 euro per person for a toast with jam and... More

Quite and nice, good service and fantastic view. Low season, hence no restaurant open. Perfect place to start trekking and sightseeing. Nice pool in the garden with roofing. Only 15 minutes drive to the sea and Marbella. Very relaxing. I few good restaurants, but seasonal menu. Value for money. Recommended for single or couples. Not very fun for kids.

It is 16 km from the nightmare coast next to a lovely white village( Istan) with its own spring and nice walks. The hotel is small and inexpensive( E 50 for a big room with wifi), staff are very kind and helpful for suggestions. They just serve breakfast, but if you go to the village you will find bars for...

The hotel is situated in Istan which is the only destination of the road leading north out of Puerto Banus. Have that in mind when making a booking. You will have beautiful views of the coast and valley, and the lake, but it might be difficult to get food if you go on the day the restaurant is closed (which... More

About 1 km from the Istan village you find this lovely quiet place, with view over the valley and to the sea (Marbella). The rooms are very nice and spacious, and during the cold season there is heating. Lovely place for getting away from the crowded Costa del Sol, or just take long walks in the mountains and visit the... More

Stayed here in October 2012 with my girlfriend. Very friendly. Owner insisted we used the pool,lounge etc on our check out day after asking the time of our flight. Free parking. Nothing too much trouble for the owner and staff. Top quality "menu del dia". The food was very good even by Spanish standards and the waiter was very entertaining... More

Very cute hotel just outside Istan. Owner very friendly and led us to our room. Free parking! Pool was nice, though we didn't have time to use it. The rooms were adorable and had character - not like a typical hotel room! Clean & no complaints! Nearby city of Istan is worth a drive through. This was the perfect budget... More

With a friendly welcome, we enjoyed a good "menu of the day" for lunch at €12 per head. Ample choice in the menu, generous portions and nice service. Ample parking on-site. Excellent views from the exterior terrace, overlooking La Concepcion lake, and down to the sea. Just 15 minutes' drive from the coast, and a good destination just before/outside the... More

Great location with wonderful views. Warm friendly reception. Room & bathroom clean. Breakfast for additional cost. Remember your own swimming towel or provided for extra charge. Would recommend. Will return soon.
