When we arrived, there was no welcome of any kind from the unsmiling old fellow at reception. We thought he might belong to a silent order of monks! Anyway, we expected a quirky place and we were not disappointed. This is a wonderful building in a great location in the heart of the biz. Quiet room, you could hear a... More

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor we booked a 2night stay and we were not disappointed. We were so well looked after by the monks and lay staff. Fr. Juan speaks some English and was very attentive. The rooms were spotlessly clean,comfortable beds, good basic Spanish breakfast and an amazing dinner,which you have to pre book. It was an oasis...

A quiet reasonably priced hotel in the centre of town. Very clean comfortable rooms with all facilities ,without a TV but with excellent WiFi. A separate TV/ computer lounge is available. A buffet breakfast is available ,with an excellent evening meal freshly cooked ,both at a very fair price. You have to order the evening meal before 12 am on... More

Like the other reviewers here, we loved this place. The rooms are simple but extremely comfortable and the whole is spotless. In fact, I have never been to a hotel so clean. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby as is the old town and the sanctuary. Just beautiful. If you want to stay in caravaca, I can think of no... More

Lovely place to stay - very peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. Safe private parking in the grounds. Breakfast was simple but very enjoyable. The whole place was spotlessly clean. Rooms are basic but with all that is needed for a stay of a couple nights in this very interesting town. Good central situation with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The... More

On a long road trip, I stopped here. It was chosen (honestly) because it was about 20 km away from the med and so away from mass tourism. It is literally the calling of the monks here to make a simple and welcoming place for visitors, and they succeeded beyond any expectation I would have had. I would pray for... More

I really cannot praise this establishment enough. As commented on previously, it is attached to a working monastery and, as others have mentioned before, it is largely staffed by the 4 Carmelite brothers who live in the monastery, with a few lay helpers. Firstly, location. It is perfectly located in the heart of Caravaca, with good private parking, so that... More

We thought this was a fascinating place though surprisingly the restaurants did not seem to cope well with tourists. We went up to the sanctuary by means of the usual small train. These little trains seem to be all over Spain and are delightful. There are many stories attached to this pace and is supposed to be the third most... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel, which is run by a religious order once I got over the novelty of being greeted by a monk in full uniform so to speak. The building is newly refurbished and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are light and airy and nicely presented with en-suite facilities. Very little to show you are in... More

This newly converted Hotel is, predominantly, manned by a religious order. There is no suprise at finding a monk at reception or gliding through the hallways. They have a lovely sense of humour!! Rooms are basic but very clean and airy. Rooms are quieter when overlooking the inner courtyard but warmer overlooking the car park. There are pleasant gardens to... More
