Amazing location. A very interesting drive up the mountains at the edge of the national park. We stayed two nights and loved the food and the ambiance. The views were incredible out of our room. The hotel was a great find. The staff was not as engaging and friendly as we had hoped for. At checkout time, the owner charged...

We came here to escape and had a wonderful few days. The room was simple with absolutely stunning views across the mountains. The staff were busy but very friendly and helpful, the food was superb (and we thought fairly priced), and the bar prices were also reasonable. We had a couple of adventurous walks - guided by the kind loan...

This hotel is a real find - and if you arrive in the dark it might take you a while to do so. Suggest arriving in daylight - fun drive through the hills even in the dark with a terrified passenger. Arriving late we just had an amazing dessert from the restaurant, some lovely cold beers and good wine. Breakfast...

This hotel is situated at a very unique location, with magnificent view. Rooms are spacious and clean. The restaurant in my opinion is expensive for the average quality of food which is served. It may not be a habit in Andalucia to serve drinks in clean glasses, but here glasses were really filthy. On top of that, it is quite...

Dear Folker Thanks for your comments here on trypadvisor, I am glad you apreciated the views and location from top of the montain they are certainly great, sometimes in the Sierras there can be some wind and natural forces, this creates a felling of comfort being inside a warm bed and with the heating on, the windows have double closing...

I have stayed there many times and have returned even more often for lunches and dinners when we stayed at our own house in the region. This hotel and restaurant is worth travelling to.
