Absolute divine location that makes it perfect for some escapades of your own. Pin drop silence hotel unless your annoying phone beeps. The hotel seemed understaffed to us as it was difficult to find someone when needed. If you plan on a mid-week stay you may think the place is abandoned, people are rarely visible and feels secluded. -- A...

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...

We stayed as a family of 5 for 3 days before heading to the coast and what a relaxing time we have had. The rooms, pool area, food and staff have all been fantastic. This is a 3* hotel but aspires to be much more with its standards, the management are to be applauded. Nothing is too much trouble, the...

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!
