We are in two minds about Arumvale. The location is stunning with cows coming to say hello at your back door, and wonderful views of the mountains. We booked the rustic cottage via Booking.com, which worked fine except the site says there is breakfast for another 100 SAR per person, unfortunately when we asked the time for breakfast we were told there isn't any. The bed and quality of the linen is first rate and we had a great night's sleep. There is tea and coffee making facilities so that was ok. However the rustic cottage is just that, and the main house doesn't seem to have a guest's lounge. it maybe the house rooms are better in terms of space. George was brilliant when we left giving us loads of pointers for the next day, we tried them all, and the Malagas ferry is a MUST! I wouldn't want to deter anybody from staying here as the location is stunning and George is a great guide, just remember it is definitely self catering. By the way the wifi never worked during our stay, a router problem according to the lap top.
