As others mentioned, the location and views are the primary attraction of this property. It looks as if it had been a hacienda that was enlarged to become a hotel. The hotel is isolated; nothing is within walking distance.
We were quite pleased with our room, but apparently we got the "luck of the draw". We had a corner room that had a large window on one wall overlooking Zahara lake, and a balcony on the other wall. The room layout diagram on the back of our door suggested that we had the only balcony room on our floor. The rooms on the ground floor below our room had very large terraces, but we wondered why anyone would need so much extra space, unless they were planning on hosting a party.
Breakfast was the standard cold buffet with the usual jamon, cheese, breads, juices, cereals, yogurt. The breakfast room provided a nice view of the distant lake.
The only problem we had was the poor quality internet service, when it worked, it was very slow, but much of the time it did not work at all. The staff complied with our request to reboot their modem, but this was fruitless. Of course, we did not travel to Spain to surf the web, but we did need the internet to book our future travel plans in the area. The area is remote; their internet service provider was not up to the challenge.
We did not use the pool. We had minimal interaction with the staff.
In general, we would return to this hotel with the understanding that the internet will be a problem, and plan accordingly.
