I can only comment on the restaurant at the Hotel Family as we did not stay here whilst on our recent visit to Agua. We have dined here several times over the years and the food never fails to please. It is slightly different from other restaurants in the area in that dinner is served a little earlier and the...

We booked fairly late and so had no room choice. We were in the Laurel which is at the back of the hotel, has no view but does have access to a shared covered patio. The rooms were rustic, with ugly curtains which consisted of a shaggy Moroccan rug and sagging orange net curtains.The bed was comfortable and clean- in... More

This is like a snapshot of how things were 30 years ago . Huge portions , old fashioned country food , big flavours . Certainly a sea change from our normal choice , but surprisingly enjoyable , and although full for Sunday lunch , the service never faltered . French owned and run , but with a strong North African... More

From arriving to departing everything was excellent. The room was very good and the evening meal was enjoyed by all our party. The lamb was first class. I would recommend a stay at this hotel without hesitation. (All our rooms were on the first floor and there is no lift.)

It had been several years since we had stayed at the Hotel Family and we were hoping that standards had not fallen at this little hotel which had left us with such fond memories. We were six friends intending to visit the Cabo de Gata National Park one day and Oasys Mini Hollywood at Tabernas the following and we needed... More

What a lovely welcome we received upon arrival having enjoyed a drive through some absolutely stunning scenery. The rooms are very comfortable and had everything needed for a pleasant stay. The beds are a good size and a good nights sleep was had by all of us. The evening meal was absolutely wonderful and we enjoyed over two hours of... More

Lovely people, clean room with really comfy beds, fab location, excellent service and food to die for. We only went for one night but would have loved to have stayed longer. This place was recommended to us by various people and I can see why.

This is the place to come for a great Sunday lunch but come hungry! French owned and run hotel and restaurant. Small menu but that's no criticism, the food is excellent from start to finish. The service is efficient and friendly, you won't be disappointed.

We celebrated a Birthday at this fabulous small Hotel this week. The weather wasn¨t good when we arrived but the heating had been turned on in our room, so it was warm and welcoming. Dinner , was served in a small Dining room which was heated by an enormous log fire...very welcome on a cold wet evening. The food was... More

We visited this little gem out of season and were lucky they happened to be open for lunch. A family member had previously eaten and stayed at this hotel/restaurant, so we went upon his recommendation. It is slightly hidden away, as are many excellent eateries in rural Spain. The food was delicious and the staff attentive. Excellent value for money,... More
