This hotel, located on a hill with a spectacular view at the region and the sea, is really worthwhile. Nice rooms with several windows to admire the view. It serves great food although a bit expensive. Nice bar with serves good cocktails. Nice swimming pool, though not heated during our visit. Surrounded by a big botanic garden. In the evenings,...

We had exclusive use of this hotel for a family wedding and it is a super hotel in a serene and stunning location. The rooms were luxurious. We had garden terrace, bathrobes, a pillow menu. The food was delicious. I would have like if they provided some complimentary water in the rooms given the heat

The cortijo had exclusive use for a wedding party which made it very personal and the staff could not have done more to look after us. The rooms are very nicely done and overall we were charmed with the hotel and it's delightful ambience. Rumour has it that ownership will change next year to make it more upmarket or expensive....

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a four day break to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary last month. We were looking for somewhere away from the usual tourist areas for a bit of peace and quiet and we definitely found it. As many have described this hotel is somewhat off the beaten track and you really do... More

We stayed at this hotel only for one night. It's really nicely situated on top of a little hill and has a nice driveway leading up to it. The hotel and rooms itself are nice. However the surrounding grounds could be a bit nicer and cleaner. The pool didn't look that clean so even though it was a hot evening... More

We visited in June 2014. Very nice boutique hotel. Building itself is beautiful, amazing views, nice gardens and pools. Friendly and helpful staff. Suggestion for improvement to get from 4 to 5 stars: - keep the pool cleaner - more choices on the menu - upgrade of breakfast. It ok, but very plain for the room price It a great... More

One of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed in - beautiful whitewashed walls, tasteful neutral decor and lovely room terraces with views over miles of fruit trees to the sea. Incredible value - a hidden gem!

We have had two important celebrations here and were very pleased. However we called the other day for a drink and were saddened to see the place is looking a bit neglected - particularly the grounds - weeds growing everywhere. The rooms may well still be fine. We only had drinks but the waiter, who was doubling as the receptionist... More

Went for afternoon tea. We've been before but they didn't seem to cater for teatime (merienda ) as they did before. Asked for tea and cakes. Nice service but no choice of cake.
