3 nights of heaven with amazing food and service in a stunning setting and so easy to get to from Malaga airport. Lovely family run place where everything is done just right. The suites are gorgeous and it's great there are only 4. We will be sure to be returning.

Reviews of the Fountainhead hotel all seem to be full of superlatives. How else could you describe this special place. My wife and I stayed here at the end of October 2014 and weren't sure what the weather would be like. Wall to wall sunshine from start to finish. We arrived after 11pm from Malaga airport at this wonderful oasis... More

I had not read the instructions properly and we arrived in the evening but did not have a problem finding Fountainhead. What did help is the signs on the 2 km long dirt road like ‘keep going’ on a moment when you are starting to doubt whether you took the right track. Anyway the suite was amazing (Sultan), which I...

The town is out of the way, the hotel/restaurant is even further out of the way. It is perched on a mountainside and reached by a 2km side road. The food was a set menu with a taster selection for starters and dessert, each one was lovingly prepared and a taste sensation of its own. The main course was of... More

Fountainhead is an unusual and very special place. Located amidst the peaceful Spanish countryside, inland from Malaga, it will appeal to those looking for a quiet and relaxing retreat. The rooms are bright and designed in a unique variety of exotic styles with furnishings somewhat reminiscent of a Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen approach. The facilities are good, the bath house delightful,... More

We just came back from the most wonderful stay we have ever had. Fountainhead is really not a place you can describe, it is a place you will have to experience. The surroundings is just... Heavenly. The view is to die for and definitely the best view we have ever had. The food is... Oh my God... It was just... More

We had again a wonderful stay at Fountainhead. This time one of our daughters together with her partner were with us and the Helen, Peter & Family did everything to make our vacation another unforgettable one. Food was just great and there was nothing at all we could complain about.

We are two ladies who ventured up the dirt track to try out the restaurant! Along with a lovely couple from Manchester, we were the only diners. I was driving and only wanted a small glass of wine and our fellow diners insisted I share their wine, and very nice it was too! We shared a lovely cheese flan starter.... More

We have just returned to the UK following a week in Spain where we spent 3 nights at Fountainhead. Within the first couple of hours we were already wishing we could have spent the whole week there and planning when we might be able to return next year.
