The staff are so friendly and welcoming and it is so worth a visit. Only open Friday & Saturday so must book. Jose - your host is charming and amusing and also...

I had the pleasure of staying just one night at this lovely little inn in the centre of Gaucin. After travelling across three time zones in 24 hours, my room was a comfortable and peaceful haven. the windows overlooked the valley and i could see straight south to Gibraltar and Morocco. My host Luis, was wonderfully welcoming and also runs...

Very expensive for a very average hotel with few facilities but fantastic views. Restaurant not available on Sunday evenings and breakfast is in a separate bar away from the hotel. No kettle for tea/coffee, no hair drier and wifi signal very weak. TV in room was very small and some distance from the bed.

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel. We were over for our friend's wedding. The hotel is very centrally located, clean and rustic looking. The rooms are very spacious, and the views are breathtaking, looking out to the hills in Gaucin. The owner and staff of the hotel were very helpful and the owner was only a phone call...

Myself and my new wife spent a week in La Fructuosa in Jan'13. Jesus , the owner, was incredibly personable helping us with things to do during the day in Gaucin (The umbria walk is fantastic with spectacular views). The room immediately opposite the entrance to the hotel has exceptional views over the straits of Gibraltar and Morocco (on a...

Wished that we had stayed for more than one night. Our room was very large, very comfortable and with amazing views. The owners were very helpful recommending local restaurants. Gaucin is a peaceful little white hill town and would make a great base for a longer stay to explore the area.

We dined here two years ago, and were looking forward to another excellent meal here - we weren't disappointed. Excellent food and convivial service, a fantastic view - if only this restaurant was open to non-residents more often than Friday and Saturday! We were sorry to have missed Luis, but his business partner and the staff made us feel as...

A delightful small hotel in the centre of the spectacular village of Gaucin.Tasteful restoration has included antique and original features to create an ambience of old-fashioned charm and character. From its 600m vantage point, views towards Gibraltar and Morocco - both clearly visible most days - are breath-taking. If you like lots of plate glass and stainless steel, or to...

First, we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel and for expressing your opinion in order to help us improve. In fact, our hotel does not have air conditioning, information that normally it is possible to see in all the web sites where is our hotel. However, there are floor fans available to our clients who request them....

We have stayed in Gaucin on a number of occasions and eaten on the terrace of this hotel so this trip, we decided to stay the night. The hotel is small and very quirky but utterly brilliant for all that. The proprietors have a really laid back approach to hospitality but it works. The room was a delight with magnificent...
