Okay. You may see I am not a frequent reviewer. I travel a lot with my wife and to be honest most places we stay are bolt holes to lay our heads down. I only comment when a place is superlative. This is most certainly the case here.
Recently we planned a trip with friends to Spain and they said they liked Boutique type places to stay so we took their lead. As we headed in the direction of La Madrugada we were a bit nervous. It's a dirt/stone road off the main road and does not appear to be the entrance to heaven which it turns out to be.
You come up to electronic gates and after a quick chat on the intercom the gates open and you drive in. The proprietor should have warned us. The whole scene is awesome. Everything is top notch, the stone laid drive, the hand crafted doors, the marble floors, the view to die for, the open air breakfast area, the crystal clear pool. The fresh towel laid seating areas.... We were not even in the room yet! The rooms are all different and designed by the wife of the gentleman who owns the establishment with him. Nothing is too much trouble and his little touches (bringing out a blanket for the ladies while we sat around the pool in the evening was pure class)
The detail and quality in the rooms will have you rethinking your home decor. He said the renovation took many months with 25 workers, it shows! He showed us the upstairs suite and it was as good as any I have seen, New York, Paris, Italy. You name it
Breakfast is a dream. Fresh homemade bread from their restaurant, pastry, cold meats, fresh juice, melon, coffee, tea, did I mention the fresh bread! Weight gain is at no extra charge. The owners adult children are always tending to the pool area or the breakfast patrons. They definitely have their parents ability to give you a fantastic experience.
I am currently sitting in room 8 with its super comfy bed and bathroom from the book of dreams. We eave shortly and are already planning our return visit
This customer from New Jersey and Now living in the UK is VERY impressed. I could not find fault here and nor will you.
