Although I had read all the positive reviews about this place I was still pleasantly surprised as it exceeded my expectations. Andres and Anna could not have been more welcoming and the accommodation itself was absolutely lovely. We were on an Inn Travel holiday and based at the Mejorana for a week which was a great base for walking.

We booked this hotel based on the reviews and were absolutely delighted, we booked 2 days and ended up staying 3! The hotel is really lovely and the owners, Andres and Ana, are so helpful with detailed information on walking routes (in English), places to eat and even helped us choose our next stopping point, El Palmar beach.

Eating breakfast on the balcony overlooking the Grazalema hills was the perfect stay to each day we were there.

Parking has been mentioned on other reviews but we didn't find this a problem, Andres explained how to park just the other side of the hotel and we found a space there every day.

If you go to Grazalema, do try and stay here! Also check out the bar opposite the hotel for excellent food at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Andres apologised that he only had one room left and it was small and looking over the village, we t...

On a two week trip through Andalucia (in mid-June), our experience at La Mejorana was a high point, literally and figuratively. During our brief visit, we could almost imagine that we lived in this home, with views of the town and the surrounding countryside, church bells, birds circling in the air, a light breeze blowing into the room, a pool and beautiful flowers below,... You will read in other reviews about Andres and Ana. Our take? It felt as if we were a very special guest. They generously gave their time, knowledge, and attention throughout our stay, but were not overbearing. We had all the space we wanted, which is part of why the place felt so much like a home. This appears to be a common experience. Forget distinctions between B & Bs and hotels, if you're not sure about having a "B & B experience." Just stay here. It's hard to imagine that you would be disappointed.

Staying in Grazalema at La Mejorana was the highlight of a six-week trip through Europe. I started out with two nights booked, and was lucky to be able to add a third, then a fourth. If I'd had more time I would have stayed longer still.

This lovely lodge is set in the beautiful "pueblo blanco" (white town) of Grazalema , in the heart of the Grazalema park (a Unesco "Reserve of the Biosphere"), with stunning views from the guest rooms. It is listed as one of Spain's "Alojamientos rurales" (rural lodgings) and is recognized for having preserved its traditional architecture. And the hosts, Andrés and Ana, are as warm and charming as the inn. They cheerfully responded to any questions or requests and provided directions and helpful tips about the village and about hiking in the park.

The room itself was very clean and comfortable, with a roomy bathroom and marvellous views over the valleys beyond Grazalema. My room (also called La Mejorana) was up a spiral staircase, which I loved. But if you prefer, all of the other rooms have easier access, and most have a view.

I enjoyed the generous continental breakfast on the patio overlooking La Mejorana's pool, surrounded by greenery and nearby hillsides. There is an option for hot breakfast items. There are spacious indoor communal areas, with a fridge and many other facilities for guest use.

The town itself is worth exploring: With its ancient fountains and a communal laundry dating back to Visigoth and Roman times, a Roman road, a rare species of fir tree, neat and tidy white-washed buildings adorned with flowers, and high-quality local goods such as cheese, leather goods, and woolens that have been the mainstay of the village's economy, one could spend a leisurely day without leaving the village. I recommend walking the self-guided village tour to get some appreciation of the village's treasures and its history (see the guide available from the Tourist Info and/or ask Andrés). The food and drink in local bars and restaurants s delicious, with several establishments to choose from.

If you like hiking there are many trails of various lengths to choose from. A few require permits that must be obtained ahead of time (from the visitor centre in El Bosque), so if your heart is set on a particular permitted trail, plan ahead. However many trails do not require permits and there is a lot to see (e.g. wild ibex).

I'll be back, as soon as possible!

We used La Mejorana for a family holiday in end july and hired the whole villa. It was perfect for what we wanted. Grazelema has been a revelation and we will definitely be back.
Andres was lovely in showing us through the villa and the guide books and visitor information file was really helpful. The house stats cool even in 40*temps.
The pool and facilities were great. A hair dryer would be very handy :)
This is our first trip to Spain but will not be the last.
I would definitely come back to La Mejorana again.

We stayed in the La Mejorana B&B for 2 nights in May, 2013. This was a very enjoyable experience with the great view out our balcony window, a very nice breakfast and large, very clean room with comfortable bed and large bathroom. It is located in a very quiet area and very convenient to the hiking trails in Grazalema Natural Park. Andreas, the owner, was very friendly and helpful--we practiced our Spanish-he practiced his English. We traveled by bus from Ronda and it was not far from the one and only bus stop in town. We really enjoyed this area and wish we had spent a couple more days here. I would recommend this lodging choice to anyone spending time in the Grazalema area.
