Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

A fantastic holiday!
A fantastic holiday! Thank you Lorna and Lee for giving us the chance to see a beautiful and relaxing part of Spain. Your directions and advice on hiring a car made life really easy when we landed in Malaga. Our casita up in the hills was perfect - very clean, comfortable and brilliantly equipped for holidaying with a little one. We all loved the pool, the sunshine, the peace and quiet and Lorna's brilliant paella and cheesecake. We booked our holiday very last minute and can't believe how lucky we were to find such a perfect place. A wonderful pedicure in Lorna's treatment room was a total bonus and we loved visits from Chloe the dog. Hoping to return next year! The Walls Family 😀😀😀

Fantastic place to visit for a relaxing peaceful holiday
This is an ideal location if you want a peaceful relaxing holiday with or without the children. The views are stunning and the casitas are very clean and well equipped. You will need to hire a car as its a ten minute drive from the main roads. We hired ours via the internet from interrent via rentalcars.com Their counter is one floor below in Malaga airport along with all he other car hire companies. I paid extra for the all singing and dancing insurance cover but i was still hit with another 30 euros for tyre cover and recovery when booking in. Very slow service, waited over thirty minutes in a queue of six people. Check the car over and take photos. It will be very expensive if they find damage when you return it. This aside you wont be disappointed if you stay at Cortijo Jacaranda. The owners Lee and Lorna are lovely people who will do their upmost to help you have a fantastic time. Alora is the nearest town. Nice restaurants and a supermarket with lots of fresh vegetables and seafood.

Gorgeous tranquil rural Spanish retreat!
Amazing rural Spain at its best! Short drive from the airport up into the hills yet only 10-15 minutes from town and the the great tapas bars and restaurants! Your accomodation is well equipped and a few metres from the pool in complete privacy with incredible 360' views of rural Spain! Very clean and the hosts cannot do enough to ensure you have a wonderful stay! Take a book, camera and plenty of sunscreen but you won't want to miss this beautiful retreat away from the tourists and I would highly recommend to both couples, families and groups! Definitely a place to unwind and relax! My kind of paradise! 🌴

This villa was a gem of a find, easy holiday, relaxing and peaceful
Just returned from a a great stay at Cortijo Jacaranda. The facilities were excellent, beautiful pool and BBQ area. Great surroundings and brilliant hosts Lorna and Lee. Services offered were a real bonus for us, the welcome basket of food and drinks on arrival, the lovely little evening bar and giant chess set kept us all entertained and the free babysitting for an evening with added lifts to the restaurant were a welcome treat.The beauty services offered by Lorna herself were also excellent value for money. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area but you do need to drive. Roads weren't great to the property but that wasnt too much of a hindrance.

5 star accommodation
Wow, what can I say. Just had an amazing week staying at Cortijo Jacaranda. Lee and Lorna couldn't have been more accommodating. The Cassita was immaculate and very comfortable, had everything I needed and more! The pool area was lovely, very well kept, the pool was the perfect temperature and there is a shaded area with table and chairs to enjoy your lunch out of the midday sunshine should you wish plus a bbq to use to spend your evenings in the peaceful surroundings. It is such a peaceful location with easy access (by car) to the local towns. We went to a great Tapas restaurant nearby one night after it was recommended by Lorna and it did not disappoint. However, I highly recommend the paella night as cooked by Lee, it was absolutely delicious. I cannot rave about this accommodation enough, so much so that I've already booked to return next year. I loved it. Great location, great accommodation, great facilities and lovely couple. What more can you want for a holiday. Thank you Lee and Lorna. See you next year!

The Perfect Place to Stay
On arrival we were made to feel so very welcome. Lorna made us feel immediately at home and by the time we walked into our casita we knew we were going to have a great 2 weeks. The welcome package was more than we could expect, enough food and drink to save us a trip to the shop and let us immediately refresh and relax. The 360 degree scenery was spectacular and while enjoying the pool we were amazed at the beauty of our surroundings. We couldn't ask for anymore from Lorna and her family, their help and guidance about the local area really enabled us to enjoy and go to the right attractions.. Lakes, Hills and the wonderfully Spanish Malaga.. The attention to detail was that of a 5 star hotel, to the point of raking the gravel for the new arrivals... ! We can't thank Lorna enough for helping to make our holiday perfect... Please don't change a thing!!

Absolutely the most peaceful and relaxing place to be.
Stayed for 5 nights with Vicki and Sophie, and wish it was for longer. The scenery is fantastic whether it’s in the pool or just reading in the shade. It’s also a good base for exploring the surrounding area and you can easily get a train into Malaga for a trip out. The hosts are fantastic and nothing is a problem, Lorna is really friendly and helpful. They even provide a welcome pack including bread, cheese, cold meat and some wine and beer. The local towns and lakes are really worth a visit and nothing is expensive with the food being a really good standard. Please do not be put off by the drive, its not that difficult, especially with the directions provided. Will be going back in the future

I Would happily go every year
Ive been out to Cotijo Jacaranda 4 times now and cant wait to go back. The place is set high up in the hills, not overlooked by anyone and has brilliant views for miles. The accomodation is always very clean and well presented and the pool is just perfect. The hosts Lee and Lorna are great, friendly and happy to help with anything, they will help arrange trips and even offer you a lift into town if you need it. The track to this place is rough and very bumpy, but thats what keeps it unspoilt and traquil. The nearest town Alora is a ten minute drive away, it has all the facilities you would need, good food and train links to Malaga. Head up to the lakes about 15 miles away and rent a pedlo for the day ! If you want two weeks gauranteed sun and peace, then its the place for you, in my view its close to perfect.

Stunning scenery, relaxing pool, wonderful holiday.
Our 2nd visit to Cortijo Jacaranda with our 3 boys and just as good as last year. Beautiful scenery, lazy days by the pool and lovely days out to Ardales Lakes, Mijas and Ronda. The hosts are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. Good food can be found in the local restaurants. We have already booked to return in 2013.

Wonderful setting. Such peace and quiet. The kids loved having so much space.
The views across the mountains were spectacular, especially the sunsets. There was so much space for the children to play, including the pool and their own play area, so they all had a great time. The hosts were very welcoming and always willing to provide advise and help. This was the second time we've been now and will definitely be returning again.
