We enjoyed a really good meal in their restaurant during a recent stay in this unforgetable location. Set high over the local village enjoying spectacular countryside views,this hotel offers peace and relaxation as well as high end food.

We stayed for two nights at this Hotel as part of a driving holiday visiting several cities starting in Madrid . This was our relaxation part of the holiday and we decided to go here rather than the beach. Good choice as we loved it. The room we had was spacious and had a fridge, kettle and tea and coffee...

The most beautiful place in Spain to view the coast whilst sitting in tranquil gardens. The local Manchego cheese and Serrano ham with warm bread rolls are perfect with their home made sangria. Worth the trip even though the road is a little hairy!

This hotel can be difficult to locate but it is certainly worth the trek. The hotel location is superb, the sunrise/sets are exceptional. The rooms were basic but comfortable. The food was great with very attentive and hospitable staff. If your looking for relaxation and a fabulous stay and don't mind travelling for it, this is the place to be

Have an incredible stay. The staff were super nice, the location is breath taking. We got very nice sports massages from Natalia. The spa experience was wonderful, you get the outdoor private area to yourself for one hour. The sauna is really nice, the jacuzzi isn't the best, the jets are not very strong, but still nice to chill outdoors... More

My girlfriend and I stopped here after a walk in the mountains in a hot day. Lovely hotel, great staff and a beautiful mountain top garden and pool to cool off in. Food looked good to and apparently they have a suite including a glass tower and jacuzzi... One for the wish list!

Just stayed at this hotel for a friends wedding. Incredible views from its mountain top position. The room was well equipped and very comfortable. The food was fantastic and good value for money. All the staff made our stay even more special. If you want to escape from it all then this is for you.
