“A fresh and unusual hotel treat”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

This is not a hotel for those who want the usual hotel experience. A guest in a slightly shabby but very friendly and comfortable country house is the closest I can get to the experience. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. In particular all the staff from the owner down were helpful and considerate, we felt cared for and important.
We chose to eat at the hotel, sitting in the open on the terrace gazing across acres of beautiful rugged hills. The setting was magical and the food superb. If you stay here eat here !
A few words of caution, the hotel is about 5 miles out of Ronda and takes some finding, beware satnav error and be prepared to phone the hotel to find it. If you like a proper double bed be specific when booking, otherwise you will get two singles pushed together, also if you don't like a firm bed ask and a topper will be provided.

Room Tip: All seemed good

This hotel was the highlight of a 2 week vacation in Andalusia. Location, amenities, grounds, view, gardens, pool, food, service - we blew off Jerez just to extend our stay there. I never wanted to leave and can't wait to return! The most romantic hotel ever!

This "Top Quality" small hotel in an out of the way rural setting deserves all the praise it has received from other reviewers.The rooms, the service and the food can not be topped any place.This hotel is not ostentatious.It is casual. There are many characteristics that set this hotel apart from other top quality hotels. One that is unique is that the owner, manager and supervisor make an effort to get to know each customer individually; to find out what their needs are during their stay and to help them fullfill their needs whether it is a taxi to Ronda, a restaurant recommendation in the town for lunch or in our case to repair a piece of luggage.Their is one inaccuracy in another review that should be pointed out.The actual prices of dinner are 38EUR or 42EUR depending on how many courses you would like. This hotel is not only tops in the Ronda area it is the best hotel I have ever stayed at.

We stayed two nights on our travels from Jerez to Granada. We had a large junior suite that was well furnished but for a broken ceiling fan. The views from the room were to gardens and fruit filled citrus trees. The hotel is situated about 10-15 minutes north of Ronda and is difficult to find with GPS. The hotel provided great directions and the turns are well signed for finding the hotel.
The hotel has a small pool which several guests enjoyed.
We had dinner our first night which was quite good despite the limited choices.
There is a convenient open bar based on the honor system.
Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay.

High end BnB more than a luxury hotel
- continental breakfast of high standard, no choice of omelet or the like (which we had expected for this price tag)
- simple cleaning, its clean however towels not folded or put in place and no turning down the bed
- a honestly bar serve yourself concept, no bartender.
All in all great easy going atmosphere.

Food 3-5*. Limited choice for dinner. However they happily accommodate individual wishes. Quality of the food primarily 5* with a few 3* exceptions. Dinner is 42 eur, wine 20-40 eur, lunch around 15 eur and a beer 3ish eur (all +10% tax).

Location 5*. Beautiful view from the dining and pool area.

Tip: Visit Locos Tapas in Ronda (in the far end of the old city).

Service 3-5*. Everybody seems really interested in providing a great service

We stayed in the "Suite artiste": 3 small connected rooms with plenty of space. No view. Own yard. We missed a fridge in the room

A place to recommend ...it comes with a heavy price tag though.

If you are looking for a place to stay near Ronda, look no further. Although expensive the meals provided are worthy of the highest accolades. Certainly would return. The staff and service are always hidden, but there if you need them

My wife and I stayed at the hotel at the beginning of May 2014 for a 8 day period for our honeymoon. The entire staff team was very welcoming and friendly while the hotel offered tranquility and privacy in a beautiful surrounding. The food was very creative, delicious and satisfying. We left feeling completely relaxed and with many positive memories. We will surely come back one day.

Room Tip: We liked room 9, which offered cool shade during the time while it was hot outside and a beautiful b...
