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. The views on all sides, the beautiful gardens and swimming pool are just wonderful. We were visiting... More

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.

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.
