Rute is an untidy town, rural based industries and the making of anis and sweets seems to be its main claim to fame, but it is an OK location from which to drive to see surrounding towns and villages. This hotel is set just off the main road (ample parking - not always the case in Spain) and whilst, no... More

Reception staff and management very nice. The hotel is so sad it needs painting and care. Do not know if we were unlucky but the floor in room was not clean and outside had not been cleaned for a long time, we had to wash chairs off before we could sit on them. Would not rate breakfast and there was... More

I have just come back from Rute having spent 5 nights in Hotel Maria Luisa. Rute is off the beaten track with relatively few (mainly Spanish) tourists. It is deep in olive territory nestling in amongst hills with olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see. There is a huge reservoir nearby which is usually deserted and several... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently. The owner is Spanish but speaks perfect English having lived in Ireland for a while. The room was basic but adequate. We had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and the mountains. The hotel is is need of some updating but the staff and ambience in the hotel makes up for it. We... More

I visited this hotel with colleagues from work. The purpose of our trip was to visit a friend's property he has been lovingly restoring for the last couple of years. As there were ten of us, we could not all stay at the Villa so we over spilt to this hotel as it was close by. On arrival we were... More

We visited in March so weather still cool and few visitors staying in the hotel. Had a dinner, bed and breakfast offer which proved very good value for money. For the evening meal we were the only diners but were given a very reasonable selection of dishes. We were given a table close to the fire and handed the tv... More

I stayed here with a group of friends, all of whom were in the region for a wedding in nearby Iznajar. One of the most striking things is how amazing the scenery is on the journey from Malaga airport to Rute, especially around the reservoir, which is stunning. The hotel's staff were its most impressive feature. The young manager, who... More

The Maria Luisa is at the top end of town, set back from the road passing through Rute. The manager is energetic and enthusiastic about his new role there, made us very welcome and talked with intelligence about his plans for the future of the hotel. Our rooms were quiet and comfortable, with a pleasant balcony. The bar was friendly,... More
