A bit disappointing - service & lunch on the first day was appalling but it did get much better after complaining (though no offer of upgrade to compensate which grated a bit). Brusque hotel director. A bit over proud of itself I think - needs a bit of humility & soul searching. But...lovely big pool with great pool staff, nice... More

We only went here for dinner. The hotel looks beautiful. The views from the restaurant are great. There is something of a dearth of good restaurants in this area of Spain. There are some good local places but nothing really up-market. Which is why we tried here. It was OK. Actually it was pretty good, but it wasn't exceptional or... More

Dear Mr. Philip H., Thank you very much for taking the time to comment about your experience in one of our restaurants, in total we have three, La Finca (Gourmet), El Cortijo (Regional) and La Plaza (Easy Eating / Snack). All of them with different selection of wines and prices. We hope you return and try again. Yours sincerely, General... More

The grounds are stunning and the hotel has been beautifully maintained. This is a wonderful quiet getaway for adults, especially if you want friendly service but don't require much attention. Staff feels most comfortable attending to Spanish speaking guests, but are friendly and try with non-Spanish speakers. NOT the best for travel with small children, especially to utilize a mini...

This is one of the most quiet en excellent hotels we have been till now! The breakfast is simply fantastic, with a great choice of hot and cold dishes! A dinner in the restaurant 'El Cortijo' is beautifull and in the restaurant 'La Finca' there is a fantastic terrace. The rooms - we had a basic standard room - were... More

We stayed in junior suite 26 with our 7 year old twins for a week. The architecture of the hotel is breathtaking and the layout of the pool inspiring. The room was ample and kept in a good temperature, very pleasant to read in. The bathroom was very comfortable, with a family-sized bathtub. Doesn't really deliver on the entertainment (horse...

Recently stayed here for 6 days and thought it was heaven. I travelled with my partner (26) and father (48) and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Firstly, the 2 mile-long driveway (!) made it feel secluded and inviting, driving down to the actual hotel was exciting. Upon arrival we dragged our suitcases up, not realising there's a telephone in... More

My wife and I got married at this establishment and where treated like common guests. Prior to the Barcelo acquisition of this property the service and attention where excellent. We where very surprised to not receive a late check out when requested and the publics relations representative didn't even know who we where! Totally unacceptable for a five star establishment....

The buildings are incredible, classic Andalucia and the peaceful setting is exactly what the hotel website promises. The pool area is great. We eat in the El Catijo restaurant twice and found the food excellent, if expensive, especially compared to what we paid in the centre of Seville. The breakfast could hardly offer better choice or quality. Some aspects of... More

Please read Antoniofiorucci's review, I agree 100% plus when you bring issues to management they become defensive and arrogant, they need a good American Hotel style training where customer does really feel valued and you don't leave with a bad taste in your mouth.
