We booked a small retreat and we are not disappointed. The location, the hotel itself, the service, the leisure activities are outstanding. A joy for your mind, body and wallet:) Indeed the best hotel in Andalucia!

Fully recommend a visit, fabulous setting, beautifully decorated rooms in rustic style, food and service superb. A little off the beaten track but that suited us just fine to relax whilst being pampered in the glorious winter sunshine.

Undeniably beautiful building in huge attractive grounds. Secluded and pampering. lovely pool and views from restaurant are breathtaking.

Day 2 and I asked for another bottle of water - was told tap water not drinkable. Charged extortionate extra...
