We stayed at Posada Sans Marcos for four nights and had a very enjoyable time. The room was very clean, the beds extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the sitting area with its selection of books and honesty bar. The village of Alajar and surrounding area are completely unspoilt and this is a lovely area to explore. We enjoyed making use the pictorial walking guides put together by Lucy and Angel who are the perfect hosts being very friendly and informative but without being intrusive. My only regret is that because it was November we were unable to take avantage of the lovely garden, the swimming pool and meals taken in the outside, as mentioned in other reviews. Never mind - we will just have to come back next summer!

Lucy and Angel were very helpful and welcoming, and even have their own homemade walking guides to the area. They can recommend the best places to eat and drink - nothing like local knowledge for the best jamon in the area! There's a homely feel to the place, particularly upstairs where there is a fireplace and sofas.

We were there in a cold snap so couldn't enjoy the outside pool and terrace area, which is probably the nicest part of the hotel. The indoor dining room was windowless which was a bit of a shame, and our bedroom led straight off it so we were woken with the first people to arrive at breakfast each morning. Try avoiding these rooms if possible.

The room itself was simple and pleasant, with French doors opening directly out on to the pool and terrace, which in summer would be really lovely.

Recommended, but talk to them about which room you will have.

I Have just returned from a wonderful seven night break at this delightful hotel which I used it as a base for a walking holiday. The owners Lucy and Ángel are very friendly and helpful and provided their own detailed walking guides, information about the area, the best restaurants and bars. They were always happy to chat and it feels more like staying in someone's house than a hotel. I stayed in one of the first floor rooms with a great view of the hills behind the delightful garden. The hotel has underfloor cooling and heating which makes the building a very welcome retreat from the heat; the beds are comfortable and the bathroom very nicely fitted. Lucy's dinners are excellent and use local produce and the terrace is a lovely place to enjoy them. This is the third time I have stayed here and I am already planning next year's holiday.

Three days in autumn when the beach trees are turning -what a beautiful time to stay at the
Posada San Marcos. Walking or just exploring the beautiful villages around. The best food
cooked by Lucy. Her husband Angel a fountain of knowledge on the Aracena Sierra. and its food and customs. Not a place to miss if you into the countryside, the environment and grear cooking.

Stayed here for a short walking break with friends. Angel and Lucy have created a wonderful place where you can relax in quality but unpretentious surroundings. The owners' commitment to the environment is demonstrated by the handy guide to the posada on every bedroom table, which tells the story of the acquisition and build of what has clearly become a labour of love. The breakfasts comprise home produce and are mostly organic and the artisan breads totally set you up for the day. The honesty bar in reception is a nice touch, as are the array of guides and travel books on display and available to all guests. If it's unpretentious quality in relaxing surroundings you're seeking then look no further than La Posada de San Marcos. You won't regret it.
