I've stayed in 3* that were not as nice as El Convento. Great views, especially if you get a room with a terrace. We only had a balcony, which was just big enough to step onto. Still the view was great, and they have a terrace for everyone to use right off the lobby. Our room was simple but clean... More

We stayed for just one night, which we regretted immediately, as this hotel is simply wonderful. Make sure you book a terrace room - the terraces are big and private, well-furnished and they are in the sun all day. We actually didn't even explore the village until night-time as we loved lying on the terrace and admiring the incredible views... More

We stayed two nights in Arcos. This was a very comfortable base for our time in the area, although we enjoyed Ronda more and next time would probably do Arcos only on a day trip. But if one is staying in Arcos it's hard to imagine there's a better place to stay. The views are incredible, the beds comfortable, the... More

Don't let the 2 star rating of this place put you off, it's a great wee hotel. Yes, it's simple but the service is as good as you'll get in a 5 star, and the location is sublime. Try booking a room with a terrace as it is worth the few extra pounds / Euros. The view is simply stunning.... More

Lovely, quaint small hotel right next to the town square on the cliff's edge. Lovely outdoor bar on the rooftop. The view from the room was hard to believe it was real! We tried to sleep with the window open but barking dogs made us revert to using A/C! Clean, modern room, including an unusually large bathroom ! Thoroughly enjoyed... More

Arcos is a hike up from the new town no matter what. And driving/parking didn't seem to be an option. So be prepared for a walk up the hill with bags no matter where you stay. This hotel was convenient to a bunch of the little local cafes, which was nice around dinner time. The staff was very helpful and... More

Stayed one night in this beautiful hotel, the rooms are nice and tidy with what was for Europe a gigantic washroom. Clean and in a great part of the town but the real attraction is the view out of almost every room. Some rooms even had large patios that could fit a table. Absolutely beautiful. Would recommend not driving your... More

The terrace rooms here are lovely and offer memorable views and comfort. The hotel thoughtfully offers various amenities to guests and is very helpful with questions. The terrace rooms were a highlight of our trip.
