Rancho del Ingles
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I have stayed here for one week and it was amazing. The owners off the place are so friendly. The place itself it designed so wonderful, with a variety of antiques. Each day you discover something more. And then the food...... Milly is the best cook of Andalusia, for sure. I hope to return here soon.

Room Tip: every room is decorated so nice...

Many thanks for your review Linda. Of course we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we would love to see you back again another time. Milli will also be back in Spain but sad to say, we cannot guarantee that she will always be there! Once again, thank you. Miyuki

Having just read my daughter's review I can only reiterate her words. From the moment we met all of you we felt at home - you all welcomed us and nothing was too much trouble for you in making the day so special for Katie, Chris and all of us.Everybody commented on the amazing venue and the fantastic food you prepared. A day to remember for ever - all the little touches that made it so special.
Thank you so much for everything.

We have just come back from our amazing wedding at Rancho Del Ingles, from the first moment we met Miyuki and David nearly a year and half before our wedding they have been fantastic! The whole team at Rancho - Miyuki, David, Cameron, Millie and Lesa went above and beyond to make our day so special. Millie's catering was amazing and every dish (94 adults and 13 children) was cooked to perfection. All our guests thought that the venue was amazing, such a hidden oasis and completely unique. We honestly can't express in words how amazing our wedding was and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Rancho as a great wedding venue!

Having travelled with friends round some of the usual "must-see" spots in Andalucia, we needed somewhere close to Malaga airport for our last night. To find somewhere less than 20 minutes from the airport so friendly and peaceful was a real bonus. Rancho del Ingles itself is full of character, reflecting David and Miyuki themselves who have gradually transformed it over the years into more than just an excellent B & B. One building has even been constructed (by David, I believe) as the perfect venue for a wedding reception, and everywhere one can see David's passion for architectural salvage in his clever use of a wide variety of pieces, - from a fountain from the foyer of his former London offices to the pillars and roof struts incorporated in the big barn. Need somewhere near Malaga to stay? - look no further. Thank you.

How could I describe Rancho del Ingles ??? Feelings and senses do not fit into words but I will try. Beautiful landscape. Lemon trees, avocados, bushes, lawns,vegetable garden, running water. Peaceful, clean, comfortable accommodation. Every room is decorated in a "different", inspired way.
Very friendly, very interesting and charming people the owners (Miyuki & Dave).I strongly believe that it 's their presence and energy that makes this place so unique.
Do have a meal in. Miyuki's cooking is amazing!!!!! (we are vegetarians and we were surprised by the originality and taste of her recipes).
Easy access to the airport, the town of Malaga and the highway to the nearby cities.
We will go back again for sure, I hope SOON!
Highly recommended!!!!!

Returning for the second time in 2 years, David & Miyuki have continued their beautifully rustic/formal fusion landscaping even further. The fruit trees are abundant and lawns now well established. A stay in El Jardin allows a wake up to a chorus of song birds, sunlight streaming directly in to your bedroom and a sneaky dip in the pool before breakfast. Rooms and bathrooms are inspiring and worth appreciating for their individuality and welcome change form the corporate hotel offer - they work and they really work on the eye. Architecturally, its a delightful hotch-potch of world heritage salvage & Spanish Finca vernacular - with some inspiring Heath Robinson additions - just can't resist going back - time and time again to a very very special mellow place.

Room Tip: El Jardin for seclusion - Grande Casa for style and fun.

Unbelievable that it is a year since your visit. Our new website enables individual rooms to be viewed and reserved and Room 4/El Jardin is very popular. I wonder if it is anything to do with your lovely poetic and lyrical review. Thank you very much.
