We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Rural Cortijo La Alberca. It is in a beautiful setting with wonderful views. Celeste is an excellent host - she is so friendly and willing to help. The rooms are very unique and clean, the bed was very comfortable and shower was great. Breakfast was delicious, as was the home-cooked evening meal that...

The true jewel of Nijar. Amazing setting. Celeste is a magnificent host. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is superbly fresh and tasty. Beautiful rooms and spotlessly clean. Can't wait to return.

Very warm welcome from Celeste. She is a really attentive host without being over-bearing. We loved the delicious meals from local produce, cooked by Celeste's mother. Great walks straight from the house

Firstly. This is one of those places that nobody believes exists. Totally gobsmacked on arrival. The view from the terrace towards Nijar is out of this world. The hotel is surrounded by enormous rocky hills on 3 sides and has been there for 250 years with extra accommodation added in the 60's. Celeste welcomed us as long lost friends showed...

The first thing you notice is the pool, well maintained and with excellent views. The staff are friendly, the food is simple but good and there is an excellent atmosphere. Our room was cozy though they have a septic tank and warn against putting loo roll down the loo !! That mere minor issue apart, we loved the place and...

The place was amazing. What a view. We arranged for dinner and had a great home meal. Good call to go with the bottle of wine. The host, Celeste, was simply wonderful. Both my wife and I highly recommend.

We just finished a one night's stay here during the off season. I wish we had more time to stay because Celeste is truly one of the nicest hostess ever! She's the perfect combination of friendly and helpful yet gives you your own space. The resort and rooms are as they appear online. This is a somewhat rustic experience but...

This offers very traditional cortijo rooms in a fabulous location just above Nijar town. The owner is very friendly, and helpful. Rooms are small but well equipped with ensuite facilities. The views from the cortijo are excellent, especially from the breakfast on which the very good breakfast is served.

Thank LooeMan
