Enjoyable, relaxing, quiet, tranquil retreat. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and polite. Facilities were excellent with gym, spa, Jacuzzi and pool. We stayed 3 nights eating all meals within the hotel, each evening meal was in a different setting and must compliment the chef on three excellent meals including the barbecue.

Excellent choice. Nice people & wonderful decor. Suburban location & very peaceful. Easy parking which is a challenge in Med Coast. Pool & outside Bar well situated & private. Food & outdoor restaurant very pleasant.

Dear Alan, Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy to know you were satisfied with your stay. It is indeed very complicated to find parking, we believe it was essential for our clients to create an exterior and interior parking facilities. We are glad you had the chance to try both of our restaurants. Thank you... More

My boyfriend and I took a holiday last week at this wonderful hotel. Initially we booked for two nights, but our experience was so good, that we extended one more night. The friendly staff looked after us from the moment we arrived until our departure, always with a smile. We had the chance to eat at both of their restaurants,... More

First impressions were very good, clean and welcoming with friendly staff. The room was large (but lacked sufficient furniture to unpack luggage - no chest of drawers and only half a wardrobe with limited shelving). From this point it was pretty much downhill. We decided to relax by the pool and when we asked for a beer we were told... More

Dear Faulty_06, Thank you for taking the time to offer your views on your recent stay with us.

Excellent customer service and attention to detail. Very friendly and hard-working staff who aim to please guests. The room was bright and airy and comfortable with free wifi, fridge, and safe.

This hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. Castellar is one of those new communities built in the 2000's before the GFC. I suspect that they high hopes for this hotel complex (near a national park evidently) but the GFC cut things short. What is left is a funny 75 room hotel tacked onto a small town miles from...

Dear Mowgli, First of all, we hope you had a nice flight home. One of the main characerisitcs, which also differentiates us from the rest, is where we are situated and our surroundings.

We spent there only one night, unfortunately, on our trip back from Seville to Malaga to return the car we rented. It was such a pity that we had to go because we felt so much welcome at this very quiet and nice place that we both would have wanted to stay much longer. We could say much about this... More

Beautiful Hotel, attentive staff, lovely food and the icing on the cake, adults only, all set in a National Park. Will definitely be returning in the not too distant future, to experience all the other things they provide, one of them being spa facilities.

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).
