As we were staying in our apartment in nearby Sotogrande for a week or two, we bought into their overnight stay & New Year's Eve Dinner package for 2014/15 (and outstanding value it was too). The meal and wine (seemingly endless!) was excellent and the hotel was very comfortable - very well-appointed rooms and hotel decor smart and very tasteful... More

This is a lovely hotel and we stayed as a big group for a friends wedding. There isn't much to do in the area at all so I would not want to go for a long holiday but was perfect for the weekend with friends. The rooms were very clean and the staff were friendly. The pool bar could have... More

We stayed here last night at a special wine event held by the hotel. The hotel looks as if it has recently been refurbished as it is in immaculate condition. It has been furnished really well and is very comfortable and welcoming. The bedrooms are clean and minimal yet on a cold wet evening really cosy. The bathrooms again are... More

What a lovely hotel - great food, very friendly staff, nice room. Great place to relax and to use as a base to explore the surrounding area. We stayed for a week on 14th October and also went to a wedding at nearby hotel. A car is essential if you want to explore. Plenty of space at the hotel to... More

Stayed for a nearby wedding - I certainly wouldn't mind going back to spend a bit more time at the hotel as it seems a lovely place to unwind at. They offered some interesting packages to see the local countryside and I was impressed with the breakfast too. I would recommend having a car (knowing the area) as there's lots... More

Dear Lausifer, Thank you for taking the time to contribute such a pleasant review. I was particularly pleased to read that you would contemplate a return visit - as you say with a car there is much to see and do in our part of Andalucia. Your comments about our staff are also very welcome. Thank you again. More

Stayed overnight as we had a wedding nearby unfortunately this meant that we didn't have time to use the hotel facilities. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated, bathrooms are slightly dated but still clean. We had a drink by the pool area which was lovely and the views are wonderful. Lovely little place to sit and relax. Was very pleasantly... More

Stayed a couple of nights here, beautiful room with a balcony and fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Very clean and the staff were friendly. Very quiet mid week off season. The self service breakfast was lovely. Very interesting area and great to stay in the castle itself. .
