“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I'd read about this place in a Lonely Planet magazine in 2011. It didn't disappoint. Fantastic views of the mountains. The rooms are cosy and elegant. Breakfast was ample each morning, and the owners give you a great welcome. The decor of the place is extremely authentic and stylish. You could spend all day marvelling at it.

Decent sized pool, hidden away in the garden.

We had hired a car during our travels in Andalucia, and there is parking available near the property, although it was a bit difficult to find at first. The minute you get lost in the winding maze of Grazalema's street, your wing mirrors may be in trouble.

I have extremely fond memories of Grazalema, and I have La Mejorana to thank for that.

We stayed at La Mejorana for 6 nights from 11th June. It was wonderful. Andreas is such a friendly helpful man. We were given lovely walks to do. The room was lovely, and everything was spotless. Highly recommended.

La mejorana is called a B & b but was nicer than most small hotels we have stayed in It is small but has a lovely terrace for breakfast and a small pool where we could relax and swim after a days walking
Rooms are a goood size with terrace or balconies

We found it in the lonely planet magazine and would strongly recommend to others

Andres and Ana are extremely friendly and go the extra mile to ensure you have everything you could need

A perfect place to be based for walking in
the Sierra de Grazalema which is stunning

La Mejorana in Grazalema was the perfect base for exploring and hiking the Sierra de Grazalema. We spent 3 nights there in May, and Ana was the perfect hostess. She helped us with anything we needed, and provided good tips for hiking trails, restaurants, etc. The view from our room was amazing! Grazalema is a quaint, beautiful town that merits a visit if you'll be in the area.

Traveler's Tip: Driving and, especially, parking in Grazalema is a challenge, to say the least. Purchase the insurance on your rental car, and don't try to park as close as possible. If there is an open spot within reasonable distance, take it! It may be the last free spot you find, especially in the evening

Traveler's Tip #2: Be patient with the permit system for the trails in the national park. Prepare as far in advance as possible, and do not expect to obtain a permit within 24 hours. In fact, if it's the weekend, it may take a few days for you to obtain the permits.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view - the Lavender room was great!

We have just spent a week staying with Andres and Ana at their lovely home. We were independent walkers visiting Grazalema to see the Spring flowers. They provided us with maps and walking instructions-nothing was too much trouble for them. The 6 rooms are all different (as this is an old building )and comfortable with a seating area or balcony-5 have wonderful views. Breakfast is on the terrace overlooking the swimming pool with the views stretching all around.
The guesthouse is a 5 minute walk down the hill into the village where there is a good choice of bars and restaurants to eat and drink. We highly recommend them.

Our walking company suggested this place for our base in Grazalema and we are glad they did. The owners are extremely friendly and made us very welcome on our arrival. The room had great views and really was just what we had hoped for. If you are looking for a comfortable base offering a homely feel look no further.

This B&B surpassed expectations. Tucked away on a quiet street, but still moments from the main square, La Mejorana felt somewhat like a home away from home. Andreas and Ana were welcoming and happy to help out in any way they could. They speak english well. As mentioned by other reviewers, the common areas are lovely (fire going in the fireplace in the living room on cool evenings), the breakfasts are plentiful, and there is WIFI throughout. We had a room with a sitting area and a lovely view and found it a perfect place to be, even on a rainy day. We stayed for 3 nights and were sorry to be moving on.

Room Tip: I would request a room with a sitting area if planning on staying more than a night or so...a little...
