Stayed here with my partner over a weekend in early September last summer. The rooms are lovely and clean. The hotel is really pretty and it's nice and quiet. The staff are really friendly. We went to one of their BBQs which had delicious food and was good value for money. We walked to the zoo nearby and had a... More

Hotel Castellar is a peaceful and elegant retreat for adults only (you have to be 16+). It is a 20 minute drive from the beaches/ A7 motorway/ Gibraltar and it is well worth a short detour. It is situated in a mountainous region within a stone's throw away from a huge national park. The hotel is tastefully decorated and very... More

An inland hotel, immaculately clean, with picturesque gardens, tennis courts and a medium-sized pool. Modern gym facilities and a spa. Possibly the best customer service I have ever experienced - I went for a peaceful weekend to study for an exam, and all staff had been briefed and went out of their way to ensure I had the quietest room...

Hotel was quiet and relaxing. You have to be 16+ to stay which meant you didn't have to worry about being disturbed by screaming children. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Pool was refreshing. Staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. Spa facilities were limited but if you wanted a treatment it was easily arranged.

This is a lovely hotel. I have a house nearby and so will not get many chances to stay; which is a shame. Let's look at some of the tangibles. The hotel is easy to find and well signposted. It could be considered as 'in the middle of nowhere'. But it is 20 minutes to the beaches of Alcaidesa; Sotogrande... More

While myself and my boyfriend stayed here because of our friends wedding in a nearby hotel we were kicking ourselves we weren't able to stay an extra night. The hotel is beautifully furnished, large bedrooms and lovely and airy. The pool was fab with no fighting for loungers and towels provided fresh everyday. We had lunch by the poolside, dinner...

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.

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
