My partner and I spent a week at the Molino del Carmen after finding it on sawdays.co.uk. We also looked at the reviews on tripadvisor and completely agree with the other recommendations.
We stayed in Dancaire's Den, and despite this being one of the smaller suites we had everything we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Even on the hottest days the suite kept cool, the bed was a 10/10 for comfort and we had fantastic views of Andalucia from our windows right down to the coast, Gibraltar and as far as Africa. The pool was right on our doorstep and only ever had one or two other guests there so we almost had it all to ourselves.
There was a small communal games/books/dvds area which we made use of, things such as this along with the smaller details and decorations show the thought that has gone in to making guests' stays here memorable, although the picturesque town and views of Gaucin were already a good start!
