“Great Unique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Fantastic hotel in the beautiful village of Benahavis. The owners were accommodating and welcoming and showed us a couple of rooms so we could make our choice. We stayed in the astrologers room which is complete with a glass roof and telescope! The bed was massive and very comfortable and the room had TV, hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities and a mini bar. This hotel is gorgeous and truly boutique my only regret is we only stayed one night.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in May and will definitely return. Benahavis is a relaxing and beautiful village well away from the Costa. Cool, immaculately manicured, relaxing and boasting many restaurants - perhaps too many if I were to nitpick.

Very comfortable and individually themed rooms add originality and atmosphere.

Very helpful and sociable owner who clearly has passion and huge commitment for what he does.

Our main reason for selecting this hotel was actually the food and we weren't disappointed. One of those rare occasions when I could happily have order any item on the menu. Well presented, adequate portions, originality and cooked to perfection.

You won't be disappointed

We were there off season and were villa hunting around the area so didn't use the Spa or Pool.
Rooms were very good, dinner was good with good choices, breakfast was average.

Parking was not very plentiful given how quiet the hotel was.

We stayed for two nights in the Amanhavis Hotel in November. It's a lovely hotel located in the center of Benahavis. I would call it a boutique hotel, with maybe 9 or 10 rooms. All of the rooms are different, and based on different characters.We stayed in the Sultans Suite. It had a queen size bed, (very comfortable), heat and air conditioning, a small sitting area with shutters, that, when opened, over looked the pool. Opening the bedroom shutters let you see the beautiful surrounding mountains. It had a nice bathroom, with a tub and shower combination. The pool is very small, but very pleasant, being surrounded by beautiful flowers and palm trees. You can take a few stairs up to a roof top terrace that has plenty of shade, and they will happily bring wine or other libations up to you. I believe there is also wifi up there, The have a small bar and restaurant. If you're looking to explore Benahavis, with all of it's delicious restaurants, this is the place for you!

I have been in 52 countries and have stayed in great hotels and eaten in many of the finest restaurants. This property is as close to perfect as you can get. Beatiful, imaginative rooms, intimate and friendly service and superb dining, in a charming village.

from the minute we arrived we were made to feel special,it was my husbands birthday & they even printed a menu with his name & Happy Birthday on it.
We dined there & the food was truly excellent.We live on the costa del sol coast & Benahavis is just 10 minutes away.
We were in the Astronomers Observatory, a comfortable room with a glass ceiling over the bed so you can see the night sky.I have to mention that the bath was a little decrepit,& could do with upgrading.

Room Tip: The Astronomers Observatory is a very quiet room,

From entering the hotel to leaving we were treated royally. We were allocated the spice Traders Room and found it to be comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. We dined in the restaurant and both the food and service were excellent.

We will be using the hotel again and would not hesitate in recommending it to other users.
