A lovely, traditional Andalucian style hotel in a very remote location. If you are looking for a few days to get away from it all - this is the place! We found the hotel to be very quiet which was perfect. Our room (a classic double) was great, a good size with comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent, a very good selection. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The one major problem we had was the expense of the food at the two hotel restaurants. I know that coming to an expensive hotel, you should expect the restaurants to be pricey, but we found for the price the food wasn't actually that good. Our meal for 2 was 100 Euros ( for 2 starters and 2 mains, one glass of wine). The two restaurants were far too similar offering fine, gourmet dining. Would have been better to have a cheaper alternative as I'm sure most people would agree. Even lunch was expensive - for a sandwich 10-15 euro is ridiculous. I think the hotel were playing on their remote location, knowing that the guests don't really have any alternative. However, we did explore the area and found some nice (and much cheaper) restaurants on nearby village Riofrio. Would also highly recommend the restaurant at nearby Hotel Rural La Paloma. Delicious home-cooked Spanish food at a reasonable cost - the 2 of us ate a lovely meal for 40 Euros.
The outdoor swimming pool was lovely and spacious with comfy beds. However, the pool was freezing cold so I didn't go in and there was a real wasp problem which was annoying. I would recommend using the spa, we had it to ourselves! The massage I had was average and a bit disappointing to be honest, considering the price I paid. My husband did some horse riding, which we would recommend.
