I really enjoyed my stay! Chris and Mia were really friendly and always there making sure you had everything you needed. The food was delicious and went well with the vibrant and relaxed atmosphere.

The room was beautiful and looked out over the typically Spanish village town square.

If you are looking for a walking holiday or just a "relaxation by the pool holiday" this is where to go!

We spent an amazing 5 days walking in the fantastic countryside around Montejaque and Ronda - a brilliant location and the walks were amongst the best I've done in Spain. The nearby town of Ronda is one of those beautiful white towns. Chris is a brilliant host and nothing was too much trouble for him or his team - good food (which our children loved too) and a really friendly, chilled atmosphere. Our son played football out in the street with the locals, both kids swam in the hotel pool. Really good breakfasts too to set you up for a day's walking. We stayed in 3 places during our Easter break in Spain and the Elefante Amarillo was far and away the best (and the cheapest). Would love to return very soon.

We can't thank you enough Chris and the Team for a fantastic holiday.
Nothing was too much trouble - the food was excellent and although we meant to try all the restaurants in the village we were tempted by the menu every night. The lovely atmosphere at 6pm when many people are having a pre-dinner drink allowed us to chat informally with Chris and then later move on to eat in the beautiful restaurant at very reasonable prices (the children were well catered for even when requesting something not shown on the menu). The pool was great for a dip and the tapas and drinks on the patio well received. The rooms are very comfortable with a lovely view over the village square where we watched the Spanish men passing the time of day (entertainment in itself!). I think what made our holiday such a success was the willingness of the staff to accommodate all our needs but at the same time having a relaxed attitude that made us feel extremely welcome. FAB

Room Tip: Great for cycling, walking, horse riding, artists

Visited El Elephante last year and had a great time but I am afraid this time around was not. The greating from Chris was very subdued and his staff (joke) , if you could find him when you wanted some service was very irrate and scruffy . We had to eat out as the restaurant was closed and filthy, I did hear from the locals that the previous "chef " had a big fight with the owner and the police were called. Maybe the economic climate is taking hold over these little guest houses and standards are going down badly but this should not affect your vacation. Sorry to report this but at the moment this should be given a wide berth untill things dramatically improve.

We stayed here on a walking holiday with Walking Wild Andalucia. All four of us rated the seven hotels we stayed in terms of the welcome, the rooms and the food. The Yellow Elephant came top in all four. We cannot reccomend this hotel enough. It's position right in the square, the hospitality of everyone and the lovely rooms were first class and the food was very special. Don't miss it.
