Hotel is fine, clean , roomy and well equipped. I do hotel inspections as part of my job and perhaps I am more critical. Receptionists are not over helpful. A smile occasionally would have been good.
You get the impression with the food that this part is run by a tight accountant. Breakfast is very limited, one cereal, processed ham and cheese, bread etc., Dinner was unbelievably poor. Pork fillet was cut from a pretty inedible part of the pig and over cooked on outside and not thoroghly cooked in the inside. Fish was overcooked. Vegetables nearly every night were tinned peas, carrots and occasionally beans. The local Markets are full of glorious fresh vegetables! I see that a review in April 2009 thought the food was poor and it certainly has not improved. The chiller had a cream aerosol nozzle stuck in the icecream and it looked as if it had been there for ages. Empty ice cream containers were not washed.
Oddly, the Tapas in the bar was very good and generous portions Rioja by the glass was fine.
Antiquera is a very interesting old town and the hotel is well placed to walk around the town. The view from the castle is stupendous. The little tourist bus is well worth it, (senior citizens get a discount) and the driver was very pleasant. There is a recorded commentary. Do go and see the prehistoric Dolmen on the tourist bus,if you have a car, you can take in the other sites as well. Town is well placed for visits to Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Ronda. I loved the town but not the hotel.
