They advertised all over the village with flamenco. The show was ok. Not the best in Andalusia but still good.

The wine was a Rioja. But unfortunately not very good and expensive.

We where surprised with 10 euro extra charge on the bill for watching the flamenco. Even though they never (and no where) had mentioned that an admission fee was required.

Reading reviews and info elsewhere online I can't help but think this establishment has changed hands - and very much changed styles. I dont quite believe their (out of date) website or local signage. We were eventually welcomed by the owner? after wandering around for a while. It was around 3pm so maybe siesta? The first warning flag things may have changed was "we are a rural farm stay, not a hotel". Both were friendly but other than breakfast time could never be found which is ok for those who prefer the distant hosts approach.
We were the only ones there the few days we stayed. Comfy enough bed. Bathroom door would not close. Beautiful views from the balcony. Cool pool - literally. Very traditional although basic breakfast, which we discovered was after 9am. Hostess would disappear afterwards so 2nd cafe was in town. Late starts made walking a bit on the warm side and the midday sun in the mountains certainly has a bite. Sleeping should have been a highlight but local barking & howling farm dogs didn't help. No card facilities. Thankfully a machine in town. No (advertised) wifi.

This rural house is absolutely great and it is perfect if you wanna relax for a while! We got a cozy spatious room with a really nice terrace equipped with two sunbeds, chairs and a little table! The view from the terrace and from El cortijo in general is breathtaking! And the swimming pool was perfect too!
The cleaning lady welcomed us at our arrival because the owner was in Granada. We met him the day after during breakfast and he was really nice with us!
It is a pity that we could stay there just for one night! We loved it!

As noted by another commenter, the hotel is nice but there is absolutely no adequate service. We wanted to go hiking in the hills and wanted some help with routes but the only person around was on his cellphone and did not seem interested in speaking to us at all. When we came back at night there was no one to get some water for our hike from. We woke up early in the morning hoping that someone would be able to give us some water but again there was no one. We had to wait till 9 am to get a bottle of water, by which time it was too hot to go hiking. Further, no one picked up the landline and the mobile number provided was out of service throughout the trip.

Nice traditional room with big terrace balcony where we enjoyed the view on the Alpujarras and star sky at night. It is a bit of a drive outside of Capileira, but well worth it! Quiet and rural environment, nice host and you can start one of the nicest hikes from the hotel.
There's also a small swimming pool if you like to relax a bit more on the property.
