Visiting in May was clearly outside the peak period for the hotel but we received a warm welcome. The corner room we had was cool with excellent facilities - not only two wash bowls but a choice of shower - of course I went for the one with three shower functions! The courtyard is a wonderful place to sit -... More

La Almoraima is a small hotel originally built as a convent by a duchess in the 17th century and located in the natural cork oak park in Castellar de la Frontera in Andalucia, Spain. It has a small number of rooms, a very good restaurant, a charming courtyard with mounted antlers of deer shot in the vicinity and a picturesque... More

La Almoraima is a beautiful hotel in the foothills of Southern Spain, just a few miles north of Gibraltar. It shows its history as a former convent - the place is serene and the rooms are arranged like a cloister around an inner courtyard. It's not a fancy place but is perfect in its simplicity - the rooms are lovely... More

I found the gardens leading up to the hotel impressive as well as the hotel from outside, however, there were many small things that let the place down. We had to wait for about 10 minutes at the reception before we seen anyone who worked there, our room was smaller than expected and slightly dingy (walls needed a fresh coat... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. An excellent location,very peaceful. We could sit in the very pleasant courtyard with a drink. The rooms were well furnished and clean .Staff were very friendly despite their inability to speak English. There are many walks in the woodland surrounding the hotel. The menu for the evening meal was the same every night,... More

We had our daughter's wedding at the hotel staying 3 nights 4 days with exclusive hotel use having travelled from Gigon in the north visiting many beautiful Spanish towns and cities on-route. Once one moves away from business oriented hotels in towns and grow to understand the Spanish people a 10 minute wait should not faze you nor the slower... More

Entering this domain by car through a wonderful park was impressing. We were nicely received and found both the room and the environment very nice. However, there were no other guests in the hotel so why were we given a room over the kitchen where the machines started very early in the morning? As concerns the restaurant, the food was... More

This place is the perfect place for a Sunday afternoon to have coffee or amaretto :-) Can't say anything about the rooms but I can definitely say that the courtyard is very nice, also the swimming pool and surroundings are pristine. The service was fast, friendly and professional. If you are lucky then you might even see Bambi outside in... More

We were looking forward to our weekend away for my husband's birthday, I always book somewhere a little different and special. Sadly we were very disappointed, especially after reading the reviews. Firstly the reception staff were neither friendly or welcoming and we were left waiting for at least 10 minutes whilst they dealt with a wedding planning party. The tour... More
