El Chorro is a small hamlet near to "El Caminito Del Rey" between Alora and Ardales. We have often viisted as it is a beautiful area which has now become more popular due to the re-opening of the walk along the cliffs known as "Caminito del Rey", (the king's walk). The Complejo rural La Garganta has a lovely restaurant with... More

Stayed here one night before doing the walk next morning. The hotel arranged the tickets for us but be warned they need 3 days notice. Opted for breakfast at €8pp. Choice of traditional Spanish breakfasts plus great bacon rolls. I had toast with tomato, olive oil and local serrano ham which was delicious. Great coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.... More

We could not find our prebooked accommodation and the staff at La Garganta couldn't have been more helpful. They searched the internet, made a phonecall and when we still could not make contact booked us in for the night. We had a wonderful room in the amazing old building. Our beds were on a mezzanine level and the stairs down... More

We stooped one night before walking the Caminito del Ray. Excellent bedroom and bathroom facilities. Enjoyed the breakfast. Have to be a little careful with the'rustic' main menus and we enjoyed several starters rather than main courses. The terrace is a fantastic post walk drinks and rest area. Superb views and sunshine. Thinking of going there again to do other... More

Our fist room was on the 2nd floor. It had been a apartment at some point but instead of opening it up then have just kinda hidden the... More

This hotel restaurant has a lovely terrace overlooking the gorge. We have eaten there many times over the years and it has changed hands several times in that period. Unfortunately not for the better. Although it has a nice atmosphere and the staff were friendly and attentive, the food was very average. The first courses, we found, were better than... More

The hotel is located in El Chorro very close to the entrance of the Caminito del Rey. We had the duplex appartment which quite small but very cousy and has a lovely bathroom. The swimming pool is the best part as it is located at the edge of the mountain with a great view. The restaurant serves excellent local food.... More
