I find this problem wherever I stay now...unruly and noisy brats whose parents seem to think everyone else should just have to put up with there annoying offspring because " you were a child once". Yes I was but my father made sure I behaved and if I didn't I felt his wrath. Why don't parents take their kids to... More

This place is very thematically consistent, and should appeal if you're a fan of old ranch houses, adobe, deserts, horses, cacti - that kind of thing. It had a very tranquil feel to it, even when fully booked. Our room was large and clean, with a view out over the sparse and barren surrounds. The swimming pool was of decent... More

This small hotel (25 rooms) was built some time ago to resemble a traditional Spanish hacienda. Our room was comfortable with a terrace overlooking the hillside. There is a massive amount of space in the common areas, pool table, lounges etc. The swimming pool is nice but the only shade available is under 1 olive tree. I appreciate that they... More

Stayed here for five nights. The hotel is situated in the national park, so its very peaceful and quiet and has a very Spanish feel to it. The hotel and grounds are really lovely and interesting history in relation to the spaghetti westerns. The hotel has a really nice swimming pool with lots of loungers which just look out to... More

Although we didn't actually stop here during a tour of western movie locations, we went in to view the premises and to take refreshments.

We loved this hotel. We were given a lovely family room with two rooms with independent air-conditioning. The lady that was in reception was very very helpful and very nice. Clean and well decorated. It is relatively pricey but it was the high season and the breakfast was quite good as well
