We absolutely loved our stay here. Mona was very welcoming and it was really interesting to hear her story. All of the staff were absolutely delightful and could really not do enough to make our stay special. The hotel itself is really nice. The rooms are large, with big beds, a small balcony and a modern en suite bathroom. All... More

We were so fortunate to find Al Lago on our trip through the Pueblos Blancos this fall. Mona and Stefan have created something very special in Zahara. This small property has 4 lovely rooms with views over looking the lake and a terrace that the guests can enjoy just down the hall. The room is large with a huge and... More

Al lago is in the perfect white village location, this place couldn't be more beautiful. The added bonus that the food in the restaurant is simply superb and the owners and staff can't do more to help you. We felt at home and will definitely be returning.

About an hour east of the city of Cadiz, we found this B&B/inn overlooking a reservoir in a mountainside village with white-washed buildings. Fatima checked us in to room #1, and, although the room had a balcony, trees blocked our lake view. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious with fresh breads from the local bakery. Cost was 85 Euros with... More

Just returned home (Torrevieja area) after two nights at Al Lago which was the perfect antidote to the previous hectic four days and nights in Cordoba. Whilst we did not get to meet Mona or Stefan we are full of praise for the young team managing the hotel in their absence. Calm, courteous professionalism that some staff we have encountered... More

We arrived at the hotel/restaurant al Lago,Zahara de la Sierra for an afternoon lunch. We sat on the terrace outside the hotel with brilliant views across the Embalse de Zahara-El Gastor lake. We were eating that night and we only wanted a light meal so we had a plate of cold mixed tapas. Between us we had one boiled egg,cut... More

Dear Mr Cracknell Thank you for driving all the way to Al lago to have lunch. It is a shame that you chose the ¨typical Spanish cold tapas¨ plate to share after that journey because although a perfectly nice dish, it is not a highlight here at Al lago. We seek to provide all our customers with a choice and... More

The warm and sincere concern of their guests was a relief! Service one receives mostly in the states, not so much in southern Spain. With that said, the room we stayed in had a touch of chic, with a small balcony to overlook the lake, and a comfortable bed. If you enjoy it, sounds of the local children playing in... More

Stayed here for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Very nice room and a great restaurant. Great location with plenty of parking. Of all the white towns we visited zahara was also the nicest. Went on a lovely walk in the olive groves and saw lots of wildlife as well as stunning views.

What a terrific spot for hiking. Mona was really helpful with lots of suggestions on walks - organised a great horse ride for me with Dirk up into the hills and bird watching with Peter Jones. Room had a great view out over the lake to El Gastor. Restaurant is amazing. Fabulous food - up there with anything you'd find... More
