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.

We went for an art / craft week in Jun this year. We had an excellent time, including 2 dinners out and breakfast at a beauty spot, cooked by Gordon to say nothing of the visit to the market at Torre del Mar. Owners Gordon and Sue just can't do enough to help. Going in November for our 5th visit and again in June 2023. It's like going to a friends for a house party. Brilliant!! Excellent for art, walking and the like but less good if you want to go places beyond the Finca though they will arrange taxis for you. Probably not good for a typical family holiday but fabulous if you want to chill.

A wonderful stay, fabulous room, in lush garden surroundings. Throughout there are places to enjoy the views in solitude or share with friends. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the owners, Sue and Gordon, go out of their way to ensure a special experience for all. Meals are delicious and are communal where the day's experiences can be shared though that part of the holiday we could not enjoy as we were isolating because of covid. But our partial isolation didn't much detract from our stay. And the local walking is lovely though quite demanding. Totally recommended.

Our first foreign trip since before Covid, and well worth the wait. We've visited the Finca several times in the 20 years it's been open, this time with a group of friends for a walking holiday. We love coming back. Gordon & Sue, the English owners, have created a haven full of peace, wonderful views, great food and delightful staff. The 14 rooms are situated in an extensive former olive mill which they have painstakingly redeveloped, with grounds spilling down the hillside. Rooms are sizeable, some with a balcony or terrace. There's no end of sheltered, shady places to sit and relax (with a drink from the honesty bar!), as well as a pool and an extensive treehouse (built by Gordon, with seating for around a dozen!) created around a very old olive tree. The small towns of Canillas de Albaida and Competa are a walk or a short taxi ride away, and Gordon & Sue organised those for us, as well as wine tasting at the local bodega, a catamaran trip along the coast and bookings at local restaurants. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their staff. Another wonderful week - thank you so much to both of you, and see you again soon!

This was my second stay. This time for a writing retreat. The owners Sue and Gordon have put the heart into this beautiful hotel and have established an exceptional team who are 100%customer focussed. The food is delicious and the lounges and dining room are so comfortable. The bedrooms are all individual, the beds comfy. I will return again and again because it is uniquely wonderful.

An Amazing building spread over a wonderful extensive site with olive groves,gardens and pool. Large studio for group activities attracting group's from many countries :painting,team building,yoga, training courses and of course walkers. Wonderful food Duck,Tapas, swordfish and amazing desserts. Sue Gordon and Allison and the team looked after me so well it was way beyond anything I have experienced in a hotel before,there kindness was truly exceptional. 86% of guests return and that's not in anyway surprising.With great covid precautions everyone is delighted to be back.

We stayed at the Finca as part of a larger group of walkers for a week of organised walks. The Finca is beautiful, full of character and charm and set in beautiful surroundings with breathtaking views. Sue and Gordon are fantastic hosts, accommodating and helpful and great fun. The organised walks were really enjoyable and of varying levels of difficulty with local guides, taking in local villages, local food (for lunch and dinner) and drink. The food at the Finca was super, varied breakfasts, great dinners and a well stocked honesty bar. We will definitely be going back!!

I had organised a walking holiday for a Ramblers group with the Finca. We arrived on the 14th March just before the Spanish Government announced their lockdown of the whole country. Much has been said about the hotel and it's excellent facilities and the friendliness of the welcome. So this review is to say how well Sue & Gordon, the hotel owners, and the few staff that were allowed to support us, dealt with a rapidly changing and difficult situation. Something that shows the true value of a great hotel, its owners and staff. As the Sunday was not affected, the most interesting and demanding walk was decided on with Nick, our walking guide who was provided by the Finca. The walk was split into 3 parts so that all of us (20 in total) with different walking abilities were able to take part. The hardiest of us tackled the steep first ascent with the remainder being taken by Sue and Gordon to the start of the middle and easiest section. Hot chocolate was provided by Sue and Gordon at this point, very welcome! We saw some great views despite the clouds. Some of the party were then taken back to the hotel whilst the remainder of us tackled the sometimes tricky and loose path back to the finish. The finish was the Fabrica a local beauty spot, a really nice place to end our only walk. Sue and Gordon then helped us with ideas and facilities to allow our stay for the rest of the week to be as pleasant as possible. We were restricted to the hotel grounds and only two to be seen out at any one time. Social distancing was also strictly observed. However we did manage distant quizzes, a painting challenge and a photo competition done electronically and remote from each other using the Finca's internet. Food was provided at an excellent standard by Debbie the chef and the staff still managed to keep our rooms well serviced whilst we were in other parts of the hotel. It was necessary for some of the party to be certain that they would be back in the UK by the next week, Sue was instrumental in finding out flight availability and assisted with bookings, printing out boarding passes and arranging transport to the airport for those who left early. We were kept informed of the rapidly changing developments, locally in Spain as a whole and in the UK by Sue and Gordon. The rest of the party left as scheduled on the BA Flight on the Saturday (21st). Our stay was made as pleasant as circumstances permitted. Sue, Gordon and the rest of the staff were put under great strain during our stay due to the constant uncertainty of the situation. Their professionalism and the way they kept cheerful and took difficult but necessary decisions to keep us safe and yet happy is a testament to the excellence of their management. Feedback from the rest of the party has been very positive. All enjoyed the time at the Finca, despite not being able to walk as planned. We will be back (all being well) in April next year to do the walks we missed. Thank you for making a silk purse out of what was a veritable pigs ear of a situation.

One is always sceptical when reading a super-glowing review but be assured, this is genuine. Our stay at the Finca el Carrillo was simply excellent in every way: a very warm welcome from the hosts who looked after everyone fantastically, good food, comfortable room and a gorgeous location with stunning views We were guided on some wonderful walks by our hosts (+ friends and dog) and their local knowledge was extensive; not wholly surprising with twenty years developing and managing the hotel and living in Andalucia Whether staying on a walking or arts package, or booking independently, you can be confident of a very comfortable stay with Sue, Gordon, Sybil and their excellent team at the Finca el Carrillo

Stayed at the Finca for a walking holiday which we booked directly with the Hotel. The 5 walks we did were amazing, the hotel arranged the guide (who was brilliant) plus the taxis or 4x4s to take us to the start of the walks or pick us up. Plus the hotel made packed lunches or booked us into restaurants or tapas bars for en-route lunch stops. The food at the Hotel was very good & catered for vegetarians & pescetarians without any fuss at all. The lovely Breakfasts & Dinners were eaten at long communal tables outside in what was an unusually warm Andalusian October. For drinks also there's a very well stocked honesty bar which works very well and you can just help yourself to anything you like and just write it down on your own bar tab and then settle up at the end of your stay. The wines and beers were very nice although I did think they were rather on the pricey side. For two nights of the week the hotel arranged for us to eat out in local restaurants which were lovely too, again all taxi journeys there & back sorted out by the hotel. We had a break from the walking in the middle of the Holiday and the hotel arranged a taxi drop off & pick up to old Malaga town. The hotel itself is beautiful, lovely gardens and nice rooms with comfy beds. We had one of the Garden rooms which had a stunning view out across the mountains from the bedroom Juliet balcony door, plus it also had two private terraces . There's also a great pool & sun-loungers which look out across the valley. Even though the pool isn't heated it was fine in October and I swam every day we were there. The people that run the Hotel are all lovely from the owners through to the team of cooks & cleaning staff and nothing is too much trouble. If you like walking in the mountains, then I don't think I could recommend anywhere better than the Finca. Everything was so well organised and we were taken care of in such a nice way by everyone involved in the whole week from hotel, the cooking, the walking and the transportation. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
