Lovely place to stay, old cells were changed into rooms but we can still feel the peace inside, the water falling in the fountains and in the pool. Good breakfast but dinner was expensive and not worthwhile even though the restaurant was awarded a prize. The swimming pool was amazing but a little bit dirty. A good place to stay...

We stayed at the Monastery for one night. We drove there from Cordoba on our way to Seville. We drove there at night and had a difficult time finding it in the dark, but eventually stumbled onto the sleepy town of Palma Del Rio and found it. When we got there, the hotel staff said to us, "you know about...

We spent 2 nights at Monaterio as part of a week long group bike ride. I'm a Californian, and so staying in the place where the monks were trained prior to leaving to build the missions is simply amazing. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is OK, it's clean and the rooms are spacious. Pillows weren't my style. Pools are...

Stayed at the Monasterio de San Francisco for one night as a stopover from Cordoba to Ronda. Compact reception area, efficient check in. Room was indeed very large and the bed wasn't two matresses zipped together, however, the pillows were terrible, thin and lumpy. We explored the grounds and whilst there was a pool, found it sorely lacking and in...

We stayed for 1 night in this hotel as part of our cycling country tour. It was our favourite small village hotel of the whole trip. The rooms are very clean & large, although the lighting isn't too bright. The hotel has been kept looking as it has for hundreds of years, but it doesn't feel tired. It has a...

Enjoyed a very pleasant stay in this hotel. The pluses are that it has maintained its character as a past monastery with various antiques, frescos, furnishings, etc. Room was fine and fairly well appointed. Bar/lounge set in impressive room, lovely gardens / orchard, pool and courtyards. Lots of places to find a quiet corner to read a book or contemplate...

Mixed feelings about this hotel. The building itself is charming. Tastefully restored without overdoing it. But, the "let-down" feeling was in the details. Big rooms (with no view, on the patio-side) with only one chair. The bathroom, nice and big, but clumsily done. (To turn the shower on, you have to reach underneath it and get wet with cold water...

This was a gorgeous little haven in the sleepy town of Palma del Río, Spain. The walls of the monastery are whitewashed and beautiful. Everything was as clean as it could be. The restaurant served the best Bacalao al Pil-Pil I have ever tried. It was spicy and flavorful, but not overpowered by oiliness. It was delicious! The salads were...
