We spent 4 days at the hacienda and our host and hostess plus their daughter were all very helpful and pleasant. This is a rural hotel about 10 minutes from the town. Beautiful rural roads for long walks , a view of the lake, great pool with lots of grass area for lounging. Dinner was served in the sun room... More

Hacienda El Santiscal is a lovely old estate house transformed into a small hotel in a rural area outside of Argos. It is reasonably close to Argos, but it seems to be a place best booked by travelers with a car. It is a lovely hotel with very helpful staff. The rooms are quite comfortable and clean. The room we... More

We spent just one night at Hacienda El Santiscal in August. It was too short a stay.We arrived at lunch time after a long journey and were served a wonderful lunch on our terrace with beautiful views of the lake and countryside. We enjoyed a few hours beside the pool and then in true Spanish style enjoyed wonderful food served... More

My Husband and I spent 3 nights in this idyllic hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean; the Staff were amazing and could not have been more helpful. We chose to eat lightly in the afternoon as it was so hot and the food was very good and well presented. The owners were so helpful and we thought that the short... More

Stayed here on a weeknight in early Dec; we were the only guests. The staff could not have been nicer. We had drinks and a snack before a roaring fire in the lounge area. The room was lovely and breakfast was delicious. Very highly recommend.

Our night at the Hacienda El Santiscal was among the highlights of our trip to Spain. Our room was spotless and beautifully decorated and the building itself is wonderfully historic. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional, and our quiet sunset dinner on the patio was absolutely lovely. After venturing into the steep, narrow streets of Arcos the next day,... More

As many others have said before me: this is a truly wonderful retreat for some relaxation and feeling of luxury. We had one of the standard rooms, but even that was decorated tastefully in hacienda-style and good value for money. The pool area overlooking the valley and outskirts of Arcos de la Frontera is perfect - we spent 2 wonderfully... More

The building is beautiful, as can be seen from the photos. The garden with swimming pool is pretty and quiet. The terrace is shaded. Nice place to laze and read with an occasional dip before heading into Arcos or off to see Ronda. The rooms are suitably furnished to give that old-world feel you can see in the pictures. I... More

We can only thank you have understood perfectly the ambience and character of our house, as well as the mark that we wanted to give our services.
