We booked to stay at the Hotel Montelirio for 8 nights in June/July. We booked directly with the hotel and found that the staff were so polite throughout the whole process. When we arrived, we were offered parking but we had done our research and found an underground car park not too far away which cost us around 7 euros per night.
Our room (106) was lovely. We did not opt for a room with a view as this was £200 extra. This ensured that we spent a lot of time in the restaurant enjoying the views.
The restaurant is lovely and the staff were excellent. Food is great and wonderful wine choices.
The pool was heavenly. Some people are whining because they weren't told about the pool and towels. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFOREHAND!! We checked thoroughly what amenities the hotel had to offer including pool towels.
The reception staff were really lovely and helpful except one in particular.
Please be aware that if you return to the hotel after midnight, the doors will be locked so ring the bell and it's like a scene from Hogwarts with the night receptionist unlocking them lol.
If you have hired a car, it is worth a visit to Lake Zahara, La Playita, in particular as it is a small man made lake where you can swim and sunbathe. It is 3 euros to enter for the day. It is around 35 mins north of Ronda.
If you turn left out of the hotel and left again onto the main street, just before the bridge is a fantastic little tapas bar named "Tabanco Los Arcos" which is definitely worth a visit or two. We practically lived there. Sara who is the owner was so lovely and looked after us really well. The selection of wines was amazing. All of our hotel staff from the restaurant would end up here after their shift was finished and we had a drink with them.
I'd like to say a huge thanks to all staff at the Montelirio for making our stay so perfect and for the lovely bottle of Cava which you gave to us as a gift on our last night.
We shall be returning to stay at the Montelirio with the hope of purchasing a property in Ronda.
Ronda is well and truly in our hearts. :)
