The Molino del Santo was rated by our Country Walks groups as being amongst their favourites. The hospitality is excellent and the setting calm and very picturesque surrounded by mountain views. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we and our clients enjoyed the pool with its warm water and lovely garden setting. The food was consistently good and the... More

Great place to relax or walk from the door, great rooms, food and wine and service. Fireplace fab in the autumn and a heated pool in October is also very welcome - only downside, not a great choice for veggies and no Spanish visitors so not quite the authentic experience! W enjoyed it nonetheless tho!

After 20 plus year visiting here we have never found anywhere that matches this for ambience, friendliness or high standards. It feels like visiting a 'second home'. Wonderful setting (no TV, not mobile signal - bliss, no one can get us here! - We haven't let on there is decent Wifi) A total 'unwind' experience with the bonus of fabulous... More

Nothing is too much trouble for Andy, Pauline and the MDS team. Before, during and after our stay they do their utmost to ensure that we are looked after and cared for. It was the first cold day of winter and the radiators were already on as they knew we had come in from the rain. Andy immediately offered the... More

Thank you so much for your kind words Hughie. It is always a pleasure to look after you at Molino del Santo. It is generous of you to mention the offer of driers when you arrived wet from the countryside. What puzzles me is why someone in the hospitality trade would NOT do that - but it does seem to...

Lunch was taken sitting outside , lovely gardens .Amazing and excellent choice of goodies for breakfast.

Thank you for finding time to write a review for us Ann. I am delighted that you have enjoyed our "valley retreat" - I don't think we've been referred to as that before! I am not very surprised that you saw a turtle - more correctly a European Pond Terrapin - in the river. They are fairly common and get... More

I originally visited in 1987, their second week of opening, when they were offering eight or ten guests a house-party style of holiday. Andy and Pauline organised outings - mostly walks, but a horse-riding day, too - which we all did together. And lovely picnics were brought to wherever we were. Back to the Molino at the day's end, there... More

Thank you Jane for visiting again after all these years. I was also very touched that you had brought photos of your visits many years ago when things were, probably., a little more chaotic than they are now. It is great when people return after a while for making us realise how far we have come over the years -... More

Our 4th visit and it seems to get better every time. We have stayed in 3 different rooms and all were good - clean, comfortable, lovely ensuite etc. The hotel grounds are quite beautiful and together with the solar heated pool make for such a relaxing holiday. Staff, including the owners Andy and Pauline, have a special knack of making... More

Thank you so much for saying such pleasant things about your 4th visit Barbara - and this in spite of beating your husband on the golf course. The Molino faithful might like to know that Barbara was my head of year when I was a young teacher a lot of years ago. Although she has been retired for a few... More

A different time of the year than our last stay but every bit as good. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt we were well looked after.

My husband & I couldn't stay here as they weren't able to accommodate us for the full dates we wanted. So we stayed in Ronda instead; however Andy Chappell is generous enough to share his '101 Great Ideas' to explore the area free & we made good use of it - definitely worth downloading!
