Are you looking for a wonderful holiday ? Try this fabulous hotel situated 15 minutes from the ancient town of Ronda, for the most tranquil and special of holidays. This small rural hotel is situated in beautiful surroundings which are beyond compare. The accomodation, cuisine, service and friendliness of all the staff has been regularly found over more than the last decade to be the a truly excellent experience. We return again and again and would be loath to miss the most favourite and best annual holiday of all.

This was our third visit to the hotel and it just gets better! We were made to feel like old friends and were given a bottle of wine as returning visitors. The rooms are delightful they are all so different. The menu has greatly improved with far more choice. This hotel offers real value for money. The superior rooms have little terraces which are just right for that pre-dinner drink or to sit and read. The scenery around the hotel is just so beautiful.

This is a great hotel in a great location, close to Ronda. Our room was very comfortable and a good size, with ensuite bathroom and terrace. The hotel and room facilities provided were excellent, and all the staff were friendly and helpful, and speak English. We ate in the restaurant several times and the food was also extremely good. We used the hotel as a base for exploring Ronda, which is twenty minutes away by train, and for walking. The hotel provided us with with routes, maps, train times etc. it would also be a great place to just chill out. I would go back to this hotel.

I was introduced to Hotel Molino del Santo by my parents after a 4 hour walk from Ronda to Benaojan through the valleys and mountains. After finishing the walk we ended up having lunch there. I was truly smitten and vowed I'd be back soon. My husband and I have now visited the Hotel Molino del Santo 4 times. First time on our honeymoon. Truly a relaxing stay. We love the hotel, the rooms are comfortable, the scenery is just fantastic. Your evening meal is accompanied by the noise of the flowing stream adjacent and mountains all around you, the moon in the sky and fantastic local food served with a smile.

There are plenty of easy or strenous walks right outside the hotel, including an exciting cave with 15 minutes walk. Ronda is 10 minutes away with plenty of historic places or good eating to visit.

There is a pool at the hotel with plenty of sun beds and shade to chill out for the day or if you have children with you, to keep them entertained in a safe environment. The staff are only too happy to help.

What more can I say - its most definitely worth a visit.

Stayed at the Molino for 3 days as part of our 3wk honeymoon trip. The hotel is perfect for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle. We had a lovely room with enormous terrace (great for star gazing with a glass or two!). The food was superb as was the service which is low key and unobtrusive. Car is essential but once you check in you may never want to leave!

I was only there two nights - but both were wonderful. The location is excellent and the hotel itself is built in such a way that all the rooms seem very private with their own front doors and mini terraces. Gorgeous pool with mountains surrounding - and I'm sure I saw an eagle in the distance. The food was very good as well and the service was excellent - friendly, polite, helpful - but not cringeing!

Lovely river (the millstream) runs by the terrace to give pleasant background noise. I did not have a massage or treatment - not enough time - but definitely will next time.
