This hotel has been furnished beautifully and although modern it has a lovely feel of old Spain. The setting is perfect and swimming pool area is very well done with lovely 4 poster sun beds. The downside is there is nothing much around (we were out of season) unless you drove down to the village. We dined in the restaurant... More

The setting of this restaurant is superb, you have a choice of eating inside, or in the gardens, to sit outside in the garden, is great experience, and very romantic. The staff were very friendly, and the choice on the menu, was also very good. I will return here again, when next in Zahara.

Dear customer, thank you very much for your review, we're glad you liked our hotel, take the opportunity to tell if return in the future that no longer have jacuzzis on the terrace of the room because we had to remove them with a new legislative. More

We organised for our wedding guests to stay in El Cortijo in Sept 2011. Javier, the manager couldn't have been more helpful both with bookings and upon arrival of our friends and family. Traditional Spanish in style but with the recent refurb the rooms are very stylish and clean. All of our guests were thrilled with their rooms, facilities, service... More

The hotel is 4km from the town, besides the beach at 5minutes walk, there is not too much around. The service was poor, we arrived and we had to stay in a basic room the first night, though we booked superior room months in advance. The breakfast is awful, grated canned tomato for your toast and articial orange juice, it... More

This hotel is a tucked away gem. It was perfect. I'm nearly 6 months pregnant and as a couple's holiday it was very romantic and quiet. We stayed in room 4 which was part of a renovated barn. Very quirky but lovely with air conditioning which was a huge plus in the heat. The little courtyard was very pretty and... More

I booked a Junior Suite through Venere 5days ago, shown as reduced and special offer. Due to the bad reviews all agreeing that the old building rooms are a scam, and also that to get a parking spot you can only do so at the new building (and we have a car) I wrote several emails to the hotel, to...
