This was my second visit to Cerro de Hijar. The first was in the middle of winter about three years ago, when we arrived late at night to a log fire. This time we enjoyed the delights of high summer - a great swimming pool and the hotel's spectacular natural environment. The rooms are decorated sparingly, but a great deal... More

Nestled above the town of Tolox, this quaint hotel is the ideal getaway to reset your biological clock. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we were sure that it would not dissappoint. It...

This place is unique . The rooms are immaculate and quirky. This would make and ideal honeymoon location. It's truly relaxing. A place to go to get away from it all. This hotel is three star, but I think it's four star. The staff make you feel valued guests. They are friendly and relaxed. The food was magnificent, and is... More

A small hotel with 16 bedrooms, full of charm, comfortable and very Spanish. We would definitely visit again. Food well presented and good value for money and the rooms simple but with everything you need. Not suitable for toddlers and small children due to the pool area and unsafe surroundings but perfect for couples and older families.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel; what a pleasure to find back the rest and the silence after having visited the cities (Granada, Cordoba, etc...).

We chose the one night gastronomic package, but could have stayed longer. The food was stunningly good with six courses including foie gras, ox tail ravioli, scallop, and aubergine cannelloni, with local wine from ronda. The hotel perches high up in the Sierra de las Nieves, with lush gardens, pool and private spa and hot tub looking out to the... More

This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. It is the ideal place to stay if you want to go hiking in the Sierra de las Nieves. The food is excellent, eventhough to my taste not local enough. Friendly team, sometimes a bit shy but maybe because of the language barrier. Maybe breakfast could start earlier (now at... More

It's hard to believe that a 45 minute drive back from the hustle & bustle and the relentless traffic of the Costa del Sol will bring you to this fabulous oasis of calm and tranquility set high in the Sierra de las Nieves.
