Spent a wonderful 4 days here in July 08...rested, relaxed and enjoyed amazing food. The yurt is fantastic fun - camping without the hassle in some luxury. The composting loo is, surprisingly, quite good fun too!! We had a massage under the cork trees on my birthday, followed by a delighful dinner with our new friends in the pergola. The...

We have just returned from a 14 day holiday in the Afghan Yurt, and can only agree with all the previous favourable reviews. The Site and local area are incredibly beautiful, and the concreting of the notoriously bad approach road was completed by the council while we were there, so this is no longer an issue. Hospitality is first class,...

What a Magical Place!. We visited the yurt Hotel for 3 nights to completely 'switch off' which we did. The Yurts are fantastic and very well furnished. Each one set in it's own area so that you have complete privacy. The pool was lovely and totally fitted in with the surroundings.Staff at the hotel were really great and someone on...

Ed and Henrietta have created something quite extraordinary and magical .... the Yurts are beautiful as is their setting - peaceful and practical at the same time. Your outdoor shower and composting loo is privately positioned a few yards from the yurt door - that means you need a torch to get there at night - but they are comfortable...

I absolutely loved this place. I went on my own for a serious alone time chill out holiday and then wished I'd taken the girlfriend and my my mates!!! Apart from the gorgeous surroundings, pool etc, the fact that this place is about as eco green as it gets made the whole thing feel that much more amazing. Glad to...

Myself and my husband stayed at this hotel for three nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The yurt itself was spotlessly clean and it had everything we needed. The views were amazing, and the setting ideal. Henrietta's cooking is really wonderful, and she serves up each course at exactly the right time, we regretted not booking in for two dinners....

The Hoopoe Yurt Hotel was a bit of a gamble as it was our honeymoon and my suggestion. Camping can go one of two ways but Ed and Henrietta's set-up in the most idyllic setting is out of this world. The attention to detail is very impressive. We stayed in the Afghan Yurt. The interior is very stylish with antique...

Perfect get away for the independent traveller. Amazing mountain location. Bumpy road yes - so get a jeep or small 4 x 4 or extra undercarriage and wheel insurance. It's part of the price to pay for the tucked away location and you do get used to it after doing it a couple of times. It's very peaceful (not necessarily...

I stayed at the yurt hotel during early Sept 06 for 5 nights and both my girlfriend and I just loved it. It took a little getting used too - the still quiet air at night, the lack of noise, being able to see an amzing starry night witn no city lights, and very little in the way of decsions...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hoopoe Yurt Hotel’s location is idyllic - set in three hectares of olive groves and unspoiled cork oak forest, and with spectacular views of the Grazalema mountains of Andalucia, in the rugged wilds of southern Spain. Staying in one of our yurts is the perfect way to enjoy the stunning scenery, allowing you to get back to nature without forgoing the usual luxuries you would wish for on your holiday. The yurts have private bathrooms, as well as an acre of private meadow with hammocks and comfortable shaded seating areas. ... more   less
