I found the hotel shabby & very expensive for what it is! I paid €160 for 1 night for a superior double with sea view so was disappointed with my standard small basic room overlooking the carpark! It should be advertised as a b&b/hostal, in which case it would be fine! But in my opinion, this is defo NOT a... More

Stayed here for one night on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. Really nice hotel with very well maintained rooms and gardens. Dinner was great in their restaurant.....maybe could have done with a bit of background music as there were only a few other tables eating. Lovely terrace for a g and t before dinner and a brandy afterwards.

A very nicely composed set of buildings 5 min away from the beach in a former Andalucian cortijo; some of the rooms (like ours) very tastefool designed- from the furnishing felt a bit like Africa or India; nice lounge atmosphere around the pool and bar, but some of the equipment seemed a bit long in the tooth or just not...

This hotel has been furnished beautifully and although modern it has a lovely feel of old Spain. The setting is perfect and swimming pool area is very well done with lovely 4 poster sun beds. The downside is there is nothing much around (we were out of season) unless you drove down to the village. We dined in the restaurant... More

The setting of this restaurant is superb, you have a choice of eating inside, or in the gardens, to sit outside in the garden, is great experience, and very romantic. The staff were very friendly, and the choice on the menu, was also very good. I will return here again, when next in Zahara.
