They took their time to answer any questions I had and to cater to my needs. They gave me lots of insider tips on hiking in the area. The room was clean and the balcony with its...

Hotel could need an upgrade. Nice room. A mini bar would-be lovely. Breakfast could be better. Nice little town to visit pueblos blancos, Cadiz, Jerez and Arcos, and even Sevilla. Swimming pool and garden need some cleaning.

A wonderful Andalucian hotel, with very friendly and kind owners and staff. A large pool, with great views of the Sierra de Grazalema was a great attraction after a hot day cycling on the nearby via verde. Ideally situated for cycling, walking or just relaxing.

The hotel has a great location, just at the edge of town with amazing views over the surrounding hills, which is very convenient if you travel by car as there is free parking just in front of the hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are equipped with all necessary furniture, simple, nothing posh but kept very clean. The whole place has...

We were there in the end of February 2016 during off-peak season and at the time we were the only guests at the hotel. The service was very personal and impeccable.

This is a very pleasant little hotel. The manager was friendly. The view from the dining room was lovely and included one of the Moor's lookout towers on a nearby mountain. The town is very pretty - though not as old as some of the other white villages.
