We stayed for 8 nights with our 3 children having been 2 years ago. This is actually the 5th time we have been and have never been disappointed. What makes this hotel so special is the exceptional friendliness of all the staff, the degree of relaxation and the fantastic food. It is rare for both children and adults to look... More

Since 2002, we have visited 11 times, so need we say more? In that time there have been many changes, new rooms commissioned, existing rooms extended, etc. but what hasn't changed is the welcome and service provided by Andy and Pauline and all of the staff; it has continued to be first class. Add to that the good food, splendid... More

The hotel is tucked beside a river in a valley (it's an old mill) and the site and gardens have been thoughtfully designed and are carefully maintained. A swimming pool provides welcome cool. Our room had all we needed and was comfortable and clean. The restaurant food was well prepared and of a high standard,although vegetarian options were limited (usual... More

We visited the hotel in late July and it was an oasis of lush greenery and tranquility amongst a dry hot landscape at this time of year. Our accommodation was wonderful, with full facilities and a balcony to relax upon. The hotel pool was lovely, and apart from plenty of loungers around the pool, there is also a delightful shady...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and I am delighted to learn that you had an enjoyable birthday experience with us. You mention our star rating - this is a reflection of an arbitrary set of rules valued by the local government. It includes such things as having air-conditoning in public spaces and televisions in rooms.... More

This is an idyllic base for those who want to explore this area of Andalucia (Ronda, Jerez and the Pueblos Blancos): located in a valley, surrounded by mountains, its peaceful ambience is strikingly attractive. An outstanding hotel in all respects, with superb restaurant and excellent service from very friendly staff.

I live in Marbella and having read lots and lots of reviews of this hotel on Tripadvisor and also in the local press, I decided to book a one night (midweek escape in August) as a surprise for my partner's 50th birthday.

This must be my 5th time back here - I will never tire of coming and staying in this truly amazing place. The hotel is delightful and the staff so accommodating! My daughter remembers Victor as the "ice cream man". But I know him as the keeper of great wine recommendations! Can't wait to return.

Our second visit to this small, well run hotel, staff are very welcoming and obliging. Evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast next morning, unbelievable selection of goodies available. Our little piece of paradise. We will be back again before the end of the year..
