The hotel is set on a hill with a good view over the town. From a distance it has a strange prison like look which belies the interior. This is due to the large windows, of which they make a feature, charging more for rooms with floor to ceiling windows.
Some people have commented that, being located out of the town is an inconvenience as it is not an easy journey on foot; it is certainly easier to travel in by car & presumably most guests will arrive by car anyway, so that should not be a problem. Parking in town seems limited.
Other comments have referred to apparent lack of staff & I can confirm this to have been so when we stayed. There was a receptionist on arrival who doubled up in the bar but was never seen again & at breakfast there was only one rather harassed waiter. Other guests had to wait quite some time when he went off to fulfil some other function. This could be due to the current financial situation in Spain for there were few other guests when we stayed.
The rooms, as noted, are large & comfortable with double wash hand basins & the toilet separated from the rest of the bathroom.
When we stayed there was a festival taking place with loud amplified music playing on the Friday night until 3am next morning & on the Saturday until 5am. Despite the hotel's distance from the town this was quite disturbing & since this is an annual occurence I would advise anyone who might arrive at festival time to go elsewhere.
