During an improvised visit to Zahara we decided, based on the TripAdvisor reviews, to have lunch at this place. All four meals - which were very different, running from a kids menu, to a pizza, to Atlantic tuna - were in one word excellent. We highly recommend this place to everybody who ends up in the neighborhood of this place....

beautiful location, lovely room, helpful staff and nice food. Breakfast was a little awkward when more than one person was trying to use the toaster and the storage cupboard for other items was next to it

Hello thank you for the lovely review. We will see about gbetting a larger toaster so more people can toast at one time and setting up with more space. Much appreciated Mona

Where could be better to celebrate a 'significant' birthday with family and friends than at Al Lago, in Zahara de la sierra? Well, that's what I wondered, and the answer was, nowhere! Mona, Stefan and their wonderful staff made the whole weekend, and especially the main celebration on the Saturday, truly memorable. They had to do a lot of planning...

A wonderful base to work from. Warm reenergising showers to return to in comfortable rooms. Room 6 particularly beautiful. Breakfast was lovely within a limited range - the yogurt being tasty with fresh fruit. Only 6 rooms in total. The hotel restaurant is well regarded but pricey for a limited budget. Staff couldn't be nicer and were most helpful in...

Excellent food and friendly service. A varied menu and extra choice provided on a specials board. We enjoyed our meal here so much that we went again two days later! The pate starter was stunning, steak perfectly cooked and really tasty and desserts were delicious.

Large clean room very well appointed. Comfortable bed and large bathroom. Our room had a great view and was very quiet. Owners and staff were great, especially the charming young girl on reception. Only stayed one night but would definately return there again if in the area. Advise you eat at the Al Lago restaurant too, great food well cooked.

Good food and service overlooking the reservoir at Zahara. A favourite eating place whenever we are in this glorious part of Spain. Very close to Ronda and well worth a drive from the Costa to sample the views and the food.

What a serendipitous find. We were aiming for grazelema to do some walking in the national park before heading to Jerez and Cadiz, but everywhere was full. Small hotel, lovely rooms and fantastic kitchen run by Stefan and his team. Highlights - gazpacho, peppers stuffed with bacalao, lechona, .... Sad to be leaving this haven

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small family run hotel with spectacular views of Zahara´s lake. We have a well known restaurant open for lunch and dinner, serving local produce (some from our farm). The cuisine is rustic with innovative touches featuring local specialities such as wild boar, pork cheeks, paellas and in summer a wide array of fish. We also have vegetarian and vegan options, daily specials, home made desserts and an extensive wine cellar featuring many local bodegas.In addition Al lago has as a bar serving drinks, tapas and baked goods all day long. Breakfast is a buffet of fresh fruit salads, cereals, yoghurts, fresh juice, cold cuts and patés, boiled eggs, Andalucian tomato puree, breads and hot beverages.All our spacious, thoughtfully decorated en-suite double bedrooms have their own balcony with wrought iron doors, large beds, flat-screen satellite TV, built in wardrobes and rain showers. There is wifi in public areas and guests can use the hotel computer if need be. Al Lago has free on road parking and access is by recently asphalted road. We are surrounded by fabulous walking country with the Garganta Verde and many other hikes on our doorstep. Located on the edge of a typical white village/pueblo blanco into which you can wander and enjoy local bars and shops. A paradise for walkers, birders, cyclists, foodies, botanists, painters and horse riding enthusiasts. The architectural wonder of Ronda is half an hour away and other lovely white villages close by. Roman ruins, oilve oil mills and wine bodegas can be visited in the area also. For swimming the playita (spring fed mini lake) and local pool are open from mid June until Mid September. ... more   less
