Our Stay at San Marcos was great, the hotel is clean, modern and comfortable, with all the amenities you could wish for. And the proprietors, Lucy and Ángel are helpful, friendly and really knowledgeable about the area. We are vegetarians and finding food in spain can be a bit hard sometimes but we were provided tasty and healthy vegetarian food....

Easy to find and set on a peaceful street behind the town square (about 3 mins walk). Everything about Posada de San Marcos is very comfortable and a great place to base yourself for exploring the area, or to sit and do nothing. As you would expect, the accomodation is clean and spacious with homely decor. But for me what...

We were fortunate enough to spend New Year 2015 at La Posada San Marcos. The Posada is situated in the centre of Alajar and within easy walking distance of all local shops, bars and restaurants. Our room was extremely comfortable and had a terrace which overlooked the garden and pool area to woods beyond. We had two delicious evening meals...

We spent New Year at the Posada with Lucy, Angel and their daughter Sofia along with 5 other couples travelling with Inntravel. We were welcomed by Lucy and shown to a lovely room overlooking the garden and the cork oak woods beyond. New Year's Eve was particularly memorable with a jamon carving and sherry tasting session before the 4 course...

La Posada de San Marcos occupies a renovated building on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Alajar. During the renovation a lot of effort was put into reducing the carbon footprint of the building. All bedrooms overlook the back garden. Pleasant lounge with honesty bar. The posada is run by Ángel and Lucy, two very generous and helpful hosts....

A fantastic welcome from Angel and Lucy for our stay of four nights including New Year's Eve, during which Angel provided a fascinating talk and demonstration of carving Jamon Iberico. Very comfortable room, excellent food and beautiful surroundings with excellent walks to explore the local villages and restaurants. The walk notes were very comprehensive and easy to follow. A real...

We have stayed at the other posada previously which was great but Posada San Marcos was a step up. Great rooms, a relaxed bar area and great home cooking by Lucy. Made to feel very welcome by Lucy & Angel who provided a wealth of information on what to do, the walks in the area and where to eat. We...

We had a really great short break here at the end of November.

Posada San Marcos is a real find. Hidden behind the walls on a narrow street in the picturesque hilltop village of Alajar is an oasis of calm - a beautiful terrace and garden overlooking olive groves with a fantastic swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, all with individual touches. Owners and hosts Lucy and Angel will welcome you...

We stayed here for a week in October and it was heavenly. Even the 3 days of rain did not dampen our spirits. The accommodations were first class: large, comfortable room with a balcony.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. At La Posada de San Marcos the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise.Or alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de Alájar, a renovated inn dating from the 18th Century where you are surrounded by the history of its walls and chestnut beamed ceilings. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. ... more   less
