“Just clean amazing”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Most spectacular view that I have ever woken up to. Beautiful hotel, nice staff, good breakfast. And if location is everything, this is all you're ever gonna need (in Ronda). Classic, sturdy interieur and lots of nice soap in the bathroom :)

We spent two nights in this beautiful hotel in the Old Town Ronda. As soon as we walked in the room we were greeted by a breathtaking view. True you can see the same view from the bridge or any other number of overlooks but it is special when is out of your bedroom window and you are with someone special. We were in our belated honeymoon and since you can't always count on a double bed when you book a double room I asked for a "cama matrimonial" indicating that we were in our honeymoon. The hotel staff surprised us with a very elegant fruit arrangement that was delivered to our room soon after we checked in. The reception also took care of our car that we are always happy to ditch when we are in a town. Our original plan was to spend one night but we decided to stay one more and relax in this beautiful small town. Since staying one additional night was a last minute decision, we asked to see the jr suites (all jr suites have names). Although the Junior suites were much larger, we decided to save the extra $40 Euros and stay in our room since we liked that our tub had a window with the same wonderful view. Did not eat at the restaurant and did not use the pool so can't comment. Our only complaint was that the pillows were very high and hard but the second day I asked for them to be changed and they did, so it was all good. Also, I don't think that the blow dryer worked but I never asked for help on that. Both young ladies at the reception were truly wonderful, warm, and very helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We had room 102. Although room was by an elevator it was very quiet.

My wife and I ate lunch on the terrace with the stunning view overlooking the gorge, and it was so good we drove back to Ronda from Marbella the next day so our kids could share the dinning experience. The salmon salad and home made foie gras were especially good (we ordered both dishes each time we ate there). The staff is extremely pleasant. Top ratings for ambiance, food, and service.

Hotel Montelirio is an amazingly beautiful little property in the heart of breath-taking Ronda. The location is jaw-dropping as it literally hangs over the gorge and is directly adjacent to the New Bridge. The hotel itself is charming, elegant and spotlessly maintained with a beautiful marble staircase leading to all rooms, a small plunge pool overlooking the gorge and an exquisite dining terrace with stunning views.

We stayed in the duplex suite, which was spacious and lovely with the bedroom upstairs and living room and bathroom downstairs. A set of double doors opened up to a faux balcony with a dizzying view straight down into the gorge, across the bridge and with sweeping views of the beautiful Ronda countryside. We found the room/hotel surprisingly quiet and peaceful in the evening given the location at the center of everything.

The staff could not have been warmer and genuinely happy to have us as their guests. We arrived by car - which they then took and parked for us.

We had dinner on the restaurant terrace that hangs over the gorge and both the meal and the service was top notch - and of course - that view!

I cannot say enough great things about this hotel.

We are not surprised others rated this hotel so highly and thank them for their reviews which led us to book here. We are in room 01 which has a gorgeous view from a bed side balcony overlooking the bridge and valley below. The hotel is well apointed with all the facilities you would expext. Add to this the old world charm of wooden clad walls and tiled floors and if you have it all. To top this off and which gives this hotel an excellent rating is the cleanliness and friendly obliging staff. Not eaten here however breakfast was lovely sitting high above the views of the valley, however I would describe it as acceptable rather than exceptional.

We had a room overlooking the canyon and bridge. Antique furnishings and a spacious room (001). The restaurant offers the same stunning view but the food is just OK. The car park is 10 min. away because of the location of the hotel in the Old quarters of Ronda.

The sort of hotel you really don't want to recommend in case you can't get a room when you return. Outrageously beautiful views...very comfortable rooms and good firm beds...friendly and helpful staff (all of them reception waiters and cleaners) and all right in the heart of the old town and right on the edge of a precipice...the evening meal is very good too though expensive...what I would change would be the piped music (some Spanish guitar music would perhaps be better if not complete peace and quiet)...I would have liked another pillow (thank goodness I had my own with me) the ones they gave are very small) and it would have been good to have been able to make a cup of tea in the room...apart from these small points...we will be returning

Room Tip: the room with balcony at the back of the hotel is very pleasant and cheaper than those at the front...
