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.

Room Tip: Corner room (number 20) was very nice, included a balcony.

This Cortijo has a beautiful setting & breathtaking views but that's all the positive.
There is a big difference in rooms although the prices are the same. The rooms in the new building are very nice & cozy but the old rooms are small and dated. You can not book a certain room in advance, it depends on availability.
The breakfast is very simple, nothing fresh at all and the breakfast room is not inviting either. We did not try diner as this was in the same room as breakfast although again from the veranda you had an awesome view... such a pity.
There is a small swimming pool at the entrance but also not very inviting.
This could be a gorgeous place to stay but it seems to miss good management.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms in the new building!

Nice hotel, especially as a start base for local hiking (but not in summer, far to hot). Location is really special, you've to drive 3 km up a hill in order to get there, but the view is marvellous, also from the pool.

We ordered a junior suite, but obtained a standard room (without knowing it). When checking out, I asked for it, since we had parking view and a rather small room. They said they 'missed'. They reimbursed me for 10€ a night. Somewhat dissapointing. I don't book junior suites do be reimbursed afterwards...

Room itself: airco very good, WiFi quite slow, good empty refrigerator where you can put your own drinks.

Restaurant is not very cosy, if you can eat outside, please do so. Limited number of tables outside. Food not bad, a bit expensive compared to other local bars and restaurants in Andalucia. 2€ extra if you want eggs for breakfast

I'd give the hotel something in between 3 and 4 due to the room mistake. Overall i'd give it a 4. We stayed for 2 nights

Lovely, quiet country setting. Large clean rooms, balcony overlooking Zahara reservoir makes for gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Pool is very nice as well. Dinner was ok but you can get better food for much less money in the towns nearby.

If you're staying here, I would highly recommend taking a circular drive to Zahara then Grazalema and then back to the hotel. It makes for about 4 - 5 hours with all the stops and lunch but the views you get are incredible.

The hotel has all the do with the scenic place near the Zahara lake. The views are superb. Our room view was astonishing, the terrace big and with a not forgettable view. The hotel is located in full country site, which means it is really very quite over there and in the middle of these precious mountain site ( Cadiz Sierra / Malaga Sierra ). I had some walks at night on the road passing by; never saw a car and such a quite and beautiful views with full moon. The cortijo itself is very picturesque with small chapel included.
The room is big and clean.
I think the Spa is just one of the recommendable services. Yes, it is through you have to book in advance and it is an extra. This is a country rural hotel, so not a full 4 stars city or beach hotel. The Spa can be used by 4 people without problem. All usual facilities are there. The sauna and relax area is outstanding. The relax area are ceramic warmed beds. All very modern and very nice designed !!! I had an outstanding time in the Spa. We also had a massage. The massage has to be booked and it was very good.
The restaurant should be enhanced, it is OK, but it should be made more comfortable, nicer, at least the windows. The views are astonishing.

The food is not 4 stars. It is simple and good. The breakfast a bit poor for this kind of hotel.
There is WiFi only in the common parts of the hotel and not that good.

Room Tip: Choose superior room with lake view ! These are located in new building
