I cannot praise this hotel enough! The location is admittedly secluded, but this only adds to the charm of such a beautiful building. The rooms are clean and large, the staff are friendly, approachable and attend to every need, the mojitos are INCREDIBLE and the views are out of this world. Nestled beautifully in the mountains in Tolox, the hotel... More

we found thelocation a bit spooky. might be because of the cloudy day upon our arrival, as next morning when it was sunny - was better. average breakfast, nice view, staff who knows 0 (zero) English. will never return, but might be great for extreme-peace-lovers.

Dear Bohinj We really are away from the crouds at Costa el Sol and yet so close, only 45 min to Marbella for example, we do serve buffet breakfast everyday wich is average for hotels but allways fresh orange pressed juice, eggs on order, cheese local from tolox, season fruit like Cherries this days and many other things... Thank you... More

We got married in this hotel 6 years ago and we have just returned for our anniversary. This hotel is truly magical. Since we last stayed they have installed an outside spa area with a hot tub overlooking the magnificent views. We treated ourselves to the gastronomic menu which is 6 courses all of which were divine. The staff always... More

I stayed here about ten years ago during a motorcycle rally and returned on my bike again and was so pleased that I did. This hotel has the magical effect of making you simply want to relax and absorbe the peace, stunning views, wonderful and passionate service and eagerness to please. The food is an experience in itself and the... More

We did not (yet) stay in the hotel. My brother in law and wife stayed and thoroughly enjoyed it. We drove up from Marbella on a sunny Sunday for the most delicious lunch. We took the menu de degustation and were offered 6 courses, everyone equally delicious and original. Plenty of fresh bread, olives and tapenade as well, all included... More

A warm welcome at reception after a long and winding road journey. Wonderful views across the natural park. A little disappointed with restaurant considering other reviews but they were preparing for wedding next day Would certainly return next time we're in the area

Stayed 3 nights in late February, excellent, wonderful views, breakfasts and dinner were both excellent and the room was super. Will definitely go again and enjoy more walks and birding together with wanders round different villages. Staff could not be more helpful with their advice. Only slight problem was the gas went off one evening so no hot water for... More

A great third visit for us and an impressive first for our two friends. Comfortable warm and welcoming. Evening meal delicious (just a note, plates need to be warmed!). Good breakfast, self-service gave fantastic, continental choices. The hotel is a tonic for a hectic life style. Next time going to try spa and champagne suggested by other guests!

We were there September 2013 as two couples, and were incredibly lucky with the weather. Other reviewers bang on about the hiking, nature walks, bird watching and photo opportunities. We didn’t bother with any of that, instead we found in Cerro di Hijar the perfect place to chill out. Good food, particularly the sharing meat and cheese platter with an... More
