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

What a place for a wedding! The cloistered calm of the old convent is the idea setting for pre-ceremony drinks before guests move into the beautiful and restrained baroque chapel. After the ceremony the attentive and friendly catering staff pull out all the stops for a reception to remember! For a smallish wedding guests can be accommodated in the hotel... More

We recently spent six nights at this gem of a place. Close proximity to town and beach, and yet in the countryside (with deer on the grounds!). Lovely friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Stunning building rich with history. The glorious chapel (started life as a Convent) is just off the central courtyard where you can sit at tables under the... More

Just spent four nights at what we call The Convent (as this is what it started out as and still has a beautiful very Spanish chapel). Very relaxing and serene and staff were very friendly. We had a twin room which was well decorated, large and very comfortable. Beds a little larger than some singles we have slept in and... More

Loved our stay in this unique hotel - our family decided to spend 1 night here opting for the romantic package which included bed and breakfast and 1 dinner ( a tasting menu ). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially the big log fire after dinner. Service was friendly and efficient. I would recommend this hotel for its individual style... More

La Almoraima should be superb, the refurbishment has been done extremely well but it somehow lacks those finishing touches to make it great. What mainly let it down in our opinion was the food. Given the look of the hotel we were expecting a good food experience, and certainly the menu prices were, for Spain, a little on the high... More
