This was a last minute booking to relax after the children and grandchildren had gone home. We booked in for two nights but stayed for four.
The hotel has striking views to the South, goat herds regularly pass by, the gardens are well maintained, the outdoor pool of good size (ie suitable for lengths) as was the indoor poll which we did not use. The tennis court (hard court) was well maintained. The 'gym' let the other leisure facilities down as it is but a small room with minimal equipment - but why use a gym when there is so much outside? Towards the end of August the hotel was virtually empty and we enjoyed almost personal service. Most of the staff spoke good or passable English,except for one evening when none did so! The food was of a good standards with excellent service - we eat out one evening in the village of La Joya one kilometre away.
We booked an Imperial Suite - we believed we deserved some luxury and the cost was only 180 euros B&B (standard rooms were 90 euros, or as low as 70 euros from some on-line sites). For this we got a very large living room, a bedroom with a seven foot bed, a very large bathroom with a round jacuzzi big enough for two people, and a terrace large enough to have a party on, and with excellent views. The room had air conditioning which we used only once for a few hours as generally the room was a comfortable temperature.
Although the mountain roads are twisting, the surfaces are excellent with room for two cars to pass. There is plenty to do in the area - we drove to the Torcal of Antequera for a walk around the unique geology, sent half a day with the excellent audio guide of the Alcazaba in Antequera, and undertook an ascent of Camorro Alto (1378 metres). We also took a tour of the nearby lagoons, but not worth it in mid-Summer. Towns such as Ronda are within easy travelling distance and there is a local wolf farm.
We commented that it would be an excellent location for a marriage (they have a large function room) and we were therefore amused that evening to meet a couple spending their first anniversary there, having married there the year before.
Definitely a location which we will remember and may even return to.
