Certificate of Excellence
The hotel El Horcajo is located within the boundary of Grazalema Natural Park. The park encompasses the western section of the Cordillera mountain range and is at an altitude of between 250m and 1654m above sea level. Hotel El Horcajo Ronda Entorno The Park has an area of over 50,000 Hectares and has been declared a UNESCO 'Biosphere Reserve'. It is also designated by the EC as an area of special protection for birds. The park is a botanist's dream, boasting an exceptional richness of flora. There is an area of natural forest of the Spanish fir-Abies pinsapa - which is a remnant of the forest which covered the region during the last glaciation. Such an area is found nowhere else in Spain. The species has been in existence since the Tertiary period and are known as "living fossils". The other vegetation in the park, such as cork oak and the wide variety of beautiful wild flowers, is distinctly Mediterranean. There is plenty of wildlife, including mountain goats, foxes and roe deer; and birds like the common vulture (one of the largest colonies in Europe, in fact), the osprey eagle and the golden eagle. The park is on the migration route for birds flying south from Northern Europe to Africa. Eagles can be frequently spotted in the park. Hotel El Horcajo Ronda Entorno From a geological point of view the park belongs to the Cordillera betica. On the western perimeter of the park are found three important caves. The Cueva del Hundidero, Cueva del Gato and Cueva de la Pileta. The natural Park of Grazalema is a nature lover's paradise. Interesting to note is the fact that the park has its own microclimate, with some areas recording the highest average rainfall in Spain. This is due to the absence of any significant mountains to the west. When the wind blows from the Atlantic in the west, these are the first mountains the humid air meets. The effect is very localized with some zones of the park recording three times the rainfall of other nearby points.

I would have liked to say I loved this place as the surrounding area is breathtakingly stunning. If it was a one star hotel and a little cheaper I would have given a higher score. The views are gorgeous, rooms just ok and in need...More

If you like a rustic room with white stonewalls and no decoration in a place located at the end of a road winding down around 100 meters you will like this. Horcajo is as authentic it can be (with aircon and hot water though) and...More

Room was very clean with comfortable bedsheets and blankets. Service from all of the staff - very friendly and welcoming, and fun! Food - is perfect for the location. Fresh bread, cheeses, juice, etc. If you want to eat "like back home" please stay there......More

As others have said,...this is a rustic hotel, but not a problem as long as that is what you're expecting and happy with. The only thing that the rooms really should have is a small fridge, so you can keep a drink cold. But, we...More
