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. Very pleasant and relaxing surroundings with free parking on site with secure underground parking available for a small fee. Memorable al fresco dinner and breakfast in the private garden.... More

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. The Parque Natural de los Alcornocales is a unique park, with distinguished factors making it unique in Spain. Castellar de la Frontera is a historical village, part... More

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). 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.

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
