We had a single night booked at the end of a week's holiday on the Costa del Sol and I trawled the net (booking.com) to find somewhere different and by is this different!
With the satnav working full blast it was easy enough to find. After a week of hot and dry weather it had started to rain as we got nearby and the switchback drive, about a 20% incline, was a nerve tester but we arrived okay.
We had room 5 which was €30 a night inclusive of B&B. The room is very small with a double bed and attached mosquito net. The room is also the nearest to the main part of the hotel. I think these rooms were once cattle pens (!) that have been tidied up and although small the tiny en-suite showerroom was clean and all the taps etc looked new.
We had lunch soon after arriving and then later dinner. The Gaudi-esque decor was pretty stuninng for a hotel and made the day and evening much more enjoyable.
As we stayed a Saturday night there was live entertainmant in the bar/restaurant. "By The Way" were an English three piece and very entertaining.
On top of this there are great views and in the dry there are plenty of outside tables to eat and generally lounge about on. The hotel also has free wifi for laptops and iPhones.
Altogether we had a great stay and I would thoroughly recommend the hotel for a stay or simply for a meal.
