We were traveling to Andalusia. To avoid the crowded route leaving Madrid on a Friday 31 July, we decided to leave Madrid the previous night around 22.00 hours. It was a good decision. The hotel staff were great and welcoming. This is a road motel nicely setup around swimming pool in the green. Rooms are big and well furnished although... More

PARISIANSPANIH good morning, glad that you have been comfortable in our hotel. We are working hard on the adequacy of the furniture. Our cafeteria, as has been proven, is the most visited of the Motorway of Andalusia and because of these holiday dates, usually full. As you said, for hotel guests is advisable at the buffet breakfast, closed the rest... More

This was my second stay here, this time with the family. I was expecting to be in one of the rooms with the bathrooms from 1970 but was pleasantly surprised. Our room had actually been refurbished, the bathroom was much better, the aircon positively modern and the beds comfortable. I am being told this is not the case for all... More

This hotel is so convenient, just slipping off the main highway as you travel along the autovia andalucia. We have stopped off here several times, and always enjoyed a good night's rest. Food has always been consistently good, breakfasts and substantial and well cooked. We found the restaurant staff to be most attentive and obliging. The spacious bedrooms are situated... More

We booked this hotel as the only one we could find on the way across the interior of Spain that took dogs. It was terrible. The grounds have not been kept up. Weeds growing all over the place. The swimming pool was not full but maybe it was the season. It looked abandoned. One building seemed abandoned. The carports were... More

Excellent value for money, great location just off the motorway but very very quiet. All rooms are bungalow style; very large, comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurant is very good, good food variety and well cooked and presented. Breakfast excellent. We would recommend this hotel for a one or two nights stopover. We will definately go... More

This was a good motel. Cars are under cover and close to the rooms. There is an excellent swimming pool. The facilities are all there, if appearing a little basic. Each room has a terrace or balcony. Beware if you have mobility issues or small children as there are a few rooms on the second floor. The restaurant provided a... More

The location is good, easy to find just off the motorway. The gardens are excellent. Pets welcome. Secure parking right outside your room. The rooms are tired and old, not that clean either. The beds are uncomfortable. The whole place needs a refit to bring it out of the 1970s & into this century. No wifi signal at the back... More
