“Lovely tranquil setting”
Reviewed March 5, 2011

This place is perfect if you're looking for quiet relaxation. Great views from the sea-facing bedrooms, make sure you book one! Dinner a good option one night. Would have been nice if the pool had been full, although understandly it wasn't in February. Staff very helpful, provide us directions and advice.

Reviewed January 8, 2011

This is a nearly new hotel near San Jose, in a natural park, with fabulous views down over the park to the sea (try to book a room with the sea, not mountain views). This is a place for getting away from it all, not for clubbing (the nearest sizeable town, San Jose, is about a 10 minute drive). The rooms are nice and, whilst not large, are of reasonable size and the bathrooms good. The restaurant was good and reasonably priced and the service exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Two caveats. One, there is currently no WIFI, though they are trying to deal with that. Two, I believe that they do quite a few wedding receptions, which are unlikely to add to the tranquility you would be seeking if you chose this hotel - so it might just be worth checking if there are any on at the time you book your stay.
We will go back.

If you like a remote location (nearest other building circa 1km away) with spectacular views across rugged terrain to the sea then this is the place for you.
Rooms are clean, adequately furnished with a good sized private terrace and furniture. Service is friendly and the food acceptable- albeit in common with most hotels equivalent dishes can be had at local restaurants for lower prices. In this respect a quite superb seafood restaurant can be found 3 km away right on the seafront at La Isleta de Moro.
The USP of this hotel lies in its stunning location, the magnificent views and its proximity to the cabo de gata.
