“Fabulous - we will never forget this wonderful hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This small rural hotel is worthy of all the praise it receives in the reviews. Encarna & Felix are the perfect hosts and have a very special place here in the Sierra National Park. Ideal location to tour this area. It's very tranquil tucked away on the road to Trevelez but the roads are so good that is doesn't take long to get to lots of the "White villages". Trevelez is a lovely place only a few minutes drive away (see review of La Fragua restaurant).
We stayed in the El Cerezo room - very spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable with glorious views.After a peaceful night's sleep, amazing breakfasts start the day (Encarna's cake is delicious!). Then relax in peace or go exploring this wonderful area. Finally, don't forget to check out the sky at night - the stars are amazing.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms look good & fabulous views to be had all around. We stayed in El Cerezo - very big wit...

The hotel is amazing, the views are stunning and the owners are extremely friendly. Upon arrival one of the owners gave us a great tour around the property explaining the history of the area and the hotel. I recommend anyone to go to El Castañar Nazari!

The hotel ovelooks the valley of Busquistar and is cloaked by the mountains.We found ourselves staring peacfully from the balcony quite often during our stay either at the scenery the stars or quietly reading a book with Lucky the terrier sitting close by (the dog impersonating a volkswagen on the VW commerial is his double, so sweet).The accomodation is perfect. The furnishings compliment the rooms perfectly and are so thoughtfully placed and rich to the eye and touch.The hosts are so gracious,sweet and enthusiastic, we left feeling quite enriched. Breakfasts are lush,local produce and served in beautiful surroundings.With stories of Felix's travels and beautiful music to listen to, these are host that put every effort into your wellbeing and enjoyment during your stay, its nothing but energizing. We applaud Encarna & Felix on their beautiful creation of El CastaNar Nazari and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Any room at this hotel is a good room.

It has great, large rooms. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing and what can we say about the owners: they are wonderful and always ready to help. Breakfast include fresh orange juice, serrano ham, cheese, yogurt, toasts, jam, fresch baked cakes.... All in all, it was a fantastic stay, a bit pricey, yes, but it was worth it.

wonderful hotel at a altitude of 1200 meters near Trevelez. Very large and beautiful decorated room , largest bed we ever had. Balcony overlooking the Sierra and at night a sky full of stars.
Very nice hosts and excellent service.
Absolutely a place to go back to.
There is no fitness center but excellent walking opportunities

I was in a mountain bike trip in the Sierra Nevada for ten days. I really appreciate my stay in El Castanar Nazari. Felix and Encarna treated me like a king. The room was comfortable and clean. Encarna and Felix took me on a Land Rover expedition, they invited me for dinner, I created a friendship with both of them. Now, I wish to see them again, maybe in Canada or in Spain. I strongly recommend this place for an outdoor, trekking, mountain bike vacation.

I run Toma Tours which is a boutique travel company in Andalucia. We chose El CastaNar after finding good reviews on the web for some clients who wanted to stay in authentic, out of the way places. This hotel was a huge hit and they were reluctant to leave. The warm hospitality seals the deal. There are many beautiful hotels in the world but upon arrival at El CastaNar each guest felt welcome and appreciated. The evening meal was superb. I can't fault this hideaway that brushes the heavens...
