Good place to stay and a nice climbing community. We stayed in a private room which was pretty nice and the breakfast included in the price was great. Only negative experience was the new year's eve. The house next to it had a very loud party that kept on going until 8.30 in the morning. Without earplugs it was impossible... More

The place to stay if you are in the Andalusia region for climbing. Unpretentious, welcoming, and friendly...you are treated like family. Great location walkable and near most all of the climbing areas. The best food with large portions for dinner to feed your hungry body. Mel and Gary are the owners and they go out of their way to accommodate... More

If you are looking for a place to stay, long or short in this area, I definately recommend this hotel. Spacious rooms, great welcome by Gary and Mel, the staff Roy and Tom are absolutely amazing. Don´t even think about cooking for yourself. For a very cheap price you get great food. Very relaxing in the lounge Excellent place for... More

The Olive Branch is a perfect and great value for money place to stay for climbers and those who generally visit the place to hike or sight see in the area. The location is perfect, sat right in the mountains with gorgeous views. The moment we got there we felt welcomed and when we left it was like we were... More

Just got back from a 3 night stay at OB. As always fantastic accommodation and service from a well run and maintained rural retreat. Gaz and Mel as well as their little helpers (lol) are amazing hosts and I would recommend this if you want to get away from the busy coast to a tranquil retreat. I dont know much... More

We decided to try something different this year for our main family holiday and my wife Mandy found this place purely by chance. We wanted to avoid the hustle and bustle of the main resorts but as we'd chosen a place away from the beaten track we were slightly pensive about the place and whether the kids (aged 4, 11... More

We chose to stay at the Olive Branch during our visit to el Chorro, and we are very glad we did. It's in a beatiful location overlooking mountains. Great location for climbers to stay because all the crags are near by. Mel and Gary are both wonderful and friendly. Also two guys that work there Roy and Tom were very... More

We had an amazing time staying here. Gary and Mel went out of their way to be helpful, offering to drive us anywhere we wanted to go and make the whole experience excellent. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Had another great visit at the Olive Branch in El Chorro. The OB has a great mix of social atmosphere (if you want) but you can just as easily have an early night and get a good sleep (ie not too noisy--not common in many hostels in Spain). Couldn't have had a better time, just need to figure out how... More

The Olive Branch is a climbers and walkers paradise. Mel and Gary are so friendly that you feel at home immediately. The staff are all fun, the music is great and Tom makes a curry that's worth going to El Chorro just to taste it!! You meet really nice people there and the prices are unbeatable. Take care renting a... More
