We had a great stay at this charming hotel for 7 nights . Lucy and Angel, the owner/operators were wonderful hosts and did their best to share their enthusiasm for and knowledge of the area. Angel gave us a fabulous tour of a jambon processing facility and initiated us into the intricacies of jambon slicing in combination with a sherry...

The hotel is run by a friendly English speaking couple; Angel is Spanish and Lucy (a trained chef) is from England. They were eager to please and give us guidance on walks and places to visit. Our room was not spacious with limited provision for storing belongings but adequate for our purposes and it had a spacious balcony overlooking the...

The posada is a lovely andalucian property. It is charming and very comfortable. There is a super swimming pool that we enjoyed relaxing by late in to the evening. The welcome given by Angel and his family cannot be faulted. Angel is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about environmental issues. The food at the posada was delicious. Our room was cool...

We loved the place especially Lucy's food and Angel's ability to impart his knowledge of the area and its culture. Our welcome after a delayed flight and car pick up was wonderful with a delicious plate of local ham and tasty salad. We learnt much and came away all the richer for the experience. We didn't even bother to go...

The stay at the posada was as enjoyable as ever. The room, breakfast and dinner were excellent. We enjoyed Angel's lesson on the carving of jamon and thought the trip to the jamon factory, organised by Angel and Lucy, was absolutely splendid.

Eighteen months without a visit to San Marcos turned out to be too long! We had to go back, and we were delighted to find that it was as good as ever. Walks from here at this time of year (late April) have the bonus of the profusion of wild flowers. When Lucy is not cooking one of her marvellous...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. At La Posada de San Marcos the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise.Or alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de Alájar, a renovated inn dating from the 18th Century where you are surrounded by the history of its walls and chestnut beamed ceilings. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. ... more   less
