There are obviosly some mixed reviews of this place on TA, so I guess it must depend, to a degree, on what you are looking for from a hotel as to whether you will love or hate this place. For my wife and I, who had already spent three weeks travelling in Spain before arriving at Ronda, this was the perfect place as it was so different from the City Centre hotels that we had been staying in. Whislt only about two or three kilometers from the heart of Ronda it is situated in the country in beautiful gardens. It is very tranquil there - I don't understand some reviewers talking about noise - the only noises we heard were from an entire herd of goats, whose bells were ringing in harmony as they ran down a nearby hill towards the hotel - fantastic!!
The public areas of the hotel are very modern, clean and beautifully designed. The outdoor terraces and eating areas are very pleasant to spend time in. The pool is large and beautiful, as are the surroundings. The website pictures are exactly what you will find.
I thought that the level of choices of food was a little limited, and the quality was nothing special, but not bad. I tend not to eat in hotels anyway since restaurants should be much better at food than hotels. The friendlyness of the staff - Marta and Maria - was quite exceptional. Yes, it is true that sometimes there is only one member of staff to serve all the guests, but they only have 9 rooms in this place, so that was never a problem for us. Marta and Maria were on top of everything and nothing was too much trouble, and always served with a smile. The bed was the best one we had slept on for 3 weeks.
In summary, it looks like it does in its pictures, which, to me, look great. The staff - though few - are excellent. If you want to be central to things in Ronda then this is the wrong place for you. If you want a nice place to chill in the afternoon after running around Ronda, then this is perfect.
