We stayed here for one night and enjoyed the hotel. It took awhile to check in as there is no manned reception desk. The room was nicely decorated but the chairs were very uncomfortable. We know it is rare to find a room with seating so this was both enticing and disappointing! There is no aircon and during our stay... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Upon arrival, the beds in our room were bathed in afternoon sunlight, this made for an enjoyable siesta! The view from our room was incredible, Gibralter, Morocco and the ocean all visible from our balcony. The hotel has an interesting history which is reflected in the decor. The breakfast was delicious, quince jam, jamon,... More

We only stayed at La Fructosa for one night, and enjoyed our stay. Our room was large and comfortable, and the views from the room were spectacular. There is no lift so we had to help the owner get our bags up to our room. We ate breakfast in the downstairs restaurant. The breakfast was excellent, and the decor of... More

We had only one night in Gaucin whilst Luis was taking a well earned end of season break in Italy. We had the hotel to ourselves, beautifully looked after by Pila. Warm and welcoming, a home from home with breathtaking views from both our room and the top terrace. The rooms and the beds are extremely comfortable, masses of hot... More

In September an old college friend and roommate and I ventured forth on a week's adventure in Andalucia, with the excuse of visiting another classmate who had retired to Gaucin. Gaucin is a typical Pueblo Blanco with lots of ups and downs, very good exercise for the legs, a number of nice cafes and a ruined castle. Our friend suggested... More

We stayed twice during a tour of Andalucia. This is more like a bed&breakfast. In one of those legendary white villages. Already the entry of the hotel makes you feel like you are visiting with friends. The terrace, the "living room", all feels so inviting, intimate, private. Quiet elegance throughout in the choice of furniture, paintings, decoration. The breakfast rooms... More

We continue to go every time we can. Luis is attentive, thoughtful and charming. The food is delicious, they have recently changed chefs and he has obviously spent the Summer working so hard developing a subtle, intelligent and delicious menu. If you plan to go at the weekend make sure you book.

We visited Gaucin in September 2014 for a romantic getaway. It didn't disappoint but I can tell you the highlight was the delicious meal we had in La Fructosa. I am both gluten and lactose intolerant which is frankly a pain. We arrived unannounced at the restaurant and were greeted by the incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. I was given... More

This is our third visit to Gaucin and eating at La Fructuosa is always a highlight of our holiday!...Luis is the perfect host and the food is fantastic...If you're visiting Gaucin be sure to book a table in advance as the restaurant is always busy. The Keenan family, Durham U.K.
