Other reviews tell of the great location and facilities - all true and hard to convey in words the view from the suites. We spent 14 nights which I suspect is longer than most guests stay so we were in a great position to have a detailed experience. Helen & Peter and family are very obliging hosts. They leave you...

It's been a long twelve months since our last visit, but once we arrived we were well rewarded. This time we chose The Arizona Suite, truly amazing panoramic view over the valley as this is an end suite. This year we had the very well received addition of the AC unit in the bedroom just giving a little more comfort...

Wow! It's difficult to pick out the best parts of our 3 day/night stay?! The room (we were in the Sultan suite), the views, the food, the tranquillity were incredible and unrivalled. If you're looking for peace, serenity and sheer luxury this is the place to visit. Staff are polite and discreet and the spa treatments are excellent. Enjoy....because we...

Great location for doing nothing. Upon arrival we were greeted by Angus, who brought us to our suite (Orient, no other availble at our dates). All what you need is there, and what is not you can order from roomservice. Great tapas and rosé wine. You order breakfast during dinner and it is delivered to your suite at the time...

We stayed at Fountainhead for 2 nights as a stopover for our Andalucía walking trip. The location was great with views across the mountains.We walked to the village and were kindly picked up by the owner, Peter. The suite was well equipped and private and the well stocked fridge hit the spot for breakfast and light lunch. We ate twice...

3 nights of heaven with amazing food and service in a stunning setting and so easy to get to from Malaga airport. Lovely family run place where everything is done just right. The suites are gorgeous and it's great there are only 4. We will be sure to be returning.

Reviews of the Fountainhead hotel all seem to be full of superlatives. How else could you describe this special place. My wife and I stayed here at the end of October 2014 and weren't sure what the weather would be like. Wall to wall sunshine from start to finish. We arrived after 11pm from Malaga airport at this wonderful oasis...

I had not read the instructions properly and we arrived in the evening but did not have a problem finding Fountainhead. What did help is the signs on the 2 km long dirt road like ‘keep going’ on a moment when you are starting to doubt whether you took the right track. Anyway the suite was amazing (Sultan), which I...

The town is out of the way, the hotel/restaurant is even further out of the way. It is perched on a mountainside and reached by a 2km side road. The food was a set menu with a taster selection for starters and dessert, each one was lovingly prepared and a taste sensation of its own. The main course was of...
