Our small group stayed two days here. The hotel is comfortable, full of character and well positioned in the village. However the reason that this stay stands out well above all the other places we stayed at in Andalucia was the restaurant. The quality of the food was simply wonderful. We were brought a number small tapas at the beginning of the meal and the management were most enthusiastic to know what we thought about each one. The service was exemplary- we felt that we were treated almost as visiting dignitaries. The staff were alternately friendly and humorous in attending to us and then most serious in receiving our verdict about each stage of the meal.
The meal was a huge success and it was unfortunate that we could not finish the wonderful paella which was the centre piece of the occasion. However, during our walk the following day, our charming guide pulled out several boxes of the unfinished paella, which we enjoyed al fresco. The kitchen had seen how we had enjoyed our meal and been been thoughtful enough to provide it again for our picnic lunch.
We decided to make an exception on this trip and dine again in this same restaurant. The meal turned out out to be even better and again the hospitality was unstinting We thanked the staff personally for making our stay such a success, and I photographed them all to record such a happy occasion.
