We spend two days at El Cielo de Canar in may 2013. What a beaufiful place. We were welcomed by the dogs and John and Orna with a cold beer. The room was so beautiful, with a great bed. We really felt at home! Nice breakfast and nothing is too much trouble for John and Orna, they even picked us up from the local bar at night! A perfect place for relaxing we definitely will come back!

With a six-week sabbatical from a work, I decided to do a solo tour of Andalucia, finishing up in Granada province, and the peace and quiet of El Cielo de Canar for 3 nights. What a perfect end to a fantastic experience - John and Orna are excellent hosts; nothing is too much trouble - even providing a full breakfast on my last morning, despite my extremely early (6am!) departure for the airport. I can't recommend this hotel more highly - and words can't do the views and ambience justice. This is a wonderful part of the world, and El Cielo de Canar is a real gem... I will be back!

My girlfriend and I spent a sunny April long weekend in El Cielo de Canar and are already looking into dates/flights for a return trip.

John and Orna are fantastic hosts, offering brilliant tips and local insights, providing a 5 star service, while allowing us the space to experience the high quality comfort of the hotel.

Our days typically began with beautiful fresh coffee and breakfast on the terrace enjoying the sunshine and magnificent views. We enjoyed afternoon adventures around the mountain mule trails, taking in the stunning scenery and hiking to the local waterfall (skilfully guided by the beautiful and charming Labrador brothers Eddie and Elvis).

Back to the hotel in the evening time to unwind on the terrace or in the hammocks (we look forward to a summer visit to relax in the pool), followed by delicious local recipes for dinner (including on-site garden vegetables), cooked to perfection by Orna. At night we thoroughly enjoyed having a beer with the locals in the nearby village of Canar.

In short - I cannot recommend El Cielo de Canar strongly enough!!

Weatherwise early April might have been a bit early for the Alpujarras, but we had three wonderful days at a beautiful place thanks to passionate hosts and their Cielo. Both my wife and I can warmly recommend this mountain stay (at about 1200 meters above sea level) with a beautiful view of the valley and a vast terrace.

At the end of September 2012 we stayed here for 3 days. It is located in a very nice area and is a very nice place to relax. John is a great host and gave us lots of tips on the area where we did some nice walks. Some evenings you can have dinner or some tapas otherwise you can visit a local bar or restaurant but then you will need your car or ask John to give you a lift. Overall an excellent place to spend your holidays.

Its been over 6 months since my husband and I stayed in this beautiful property and I have meant to review before. Like a good book our experience in El Cielo has remained with me to be savoured long after it is finished. We spent 3 days in June and it truly is a special place. The rooms are beautiful, the view superb, the food lovely and the ambience lovely but what we particularly loved was the subtle attentiveness of the hosts John and Orna. And the not soo subtle attentiveness of the beautiful labradors Elvis and Edie!!! Once we moved on to Granada we were both a bit lost without John to quietly guide us. It was beautiful to spend time in Canar and experience such a true Andalucian village and yet have such luxurious accommodation. As we move to think of this years holiday the memories of this place come back to tease me. I seem to forget all the other places we stayed in which were also lovely but just have not left the same impression. It is hot in June/July up there and although there are very strong manual air con units we did miss integrated air con a little. Having said that there is no way we would have missed the experience and would recommend it to any couple no matter what time of year. Would love to go back this June but looking for a new destination. However it will be very difficult to find another El Cielo!

Stayed one night at El Cielo de Canar. John was a gracious host. We were walking the GR7. John picked us up in Canar and drove us to his place. It was a rainy day. Nicely furnished rooms. Patio has great views of the Alpujarras on sunny days. John was very nice. He drove us to town for dinner and dropped us off in the morning. He helped us order our food and gave us information about the local area.

Room Tip: All rooms looked nice.
