Very attractive cortijo. Location is the most quiet and relaxing you can imagine. Olive trees, mountains and animals. You hear nothing else but the wind, birds, dogs and horses. This is truly the country side.
Small and very charming place. Only 4 rooms. Great location for visiting the Torcal and Antequera.
Very attractive pool area with a small salt water pool. Luxurious sun beds and umbrellas. Olive trees, figues trees and flowers cover the garden.
Rooms are spacious, arounf 40 sqm, simply furnished. Bathroom is wonderful. No minibar or safe.
Breakfast is of very good quality although the quantities offered are small (i.e a couple of slices of cheese and ham). No eggs were offered.
Pool table and several books are offered.
They charge you for everyhting here. Bread for dinner? Be prepared to pay 5 Euros per couple. Want an extra key card? They will charge you.
Dinner is good but portions are small. Prices are pretty high.
In the welcome broschure, the hotel owners list all of the things you are not allowed to do. Although they probably have good reasons, this gives sort of a unfriendly impression. Owners come across as correct and professional.
You have to decide exactly what you want for dinner before 12.00 the same day. If you missed to order anyhting (even if it's a starter or a dessert) or just changed your mind, tough luck - you won't be getting it for dinner. Although understandable that the owners which to cut their costs, this is not a very flexible approach. Also, they serve no lunch here.
This place is truly in the middle of nowhere. Be prepared to drive a lot. It's 10 minutes until you reach the highway. Villanueva del Rosario and del Trabuco are close but are small sleepy villages with hardly any restaurants or stores. The nearest decent restaurant is in Antequera (lovely city) 30 min drive away.
Pool area although great, will get too crowded and much less cosy if the hotel is full. If 1-2 rooms are occupied, then it's fine.
Pretty difficult to find, even with the instructions of the owners. Hardly any signs. Be prepared to give the owners a call.
