This was my second stay here, this time with the family. I was expecting to be in one of the rooms with the bathrooms from 1970 but was pleasantly surprised. Our room had actually been refurbished, the bathroom was much better, the aircon positively modern and the beds comfortable. I am being told this is not the case for all...

This hotel is so convenient, just slipping off the main highway as you travel along the autovia andalucia. We have stopped off here several times, and always enjoyed a good night's rest. Food has always been consistently good, breakfasts and substantial and well cooked. We found the restaurant staff to be most attentive and obliging. The spacious bedrooms are situated...

We booked this hotel as the only one we could find on the way across the interior of Spain that took dogs. It was terrible. The grounds have not been kept up. Weeds growing all over the place. The swimming pool was not full but maybe it was the season. It looked abandoned. One building seemed abandoned. The carports were...

Excellent value for money, great location just off the motorway but very very quiet. All rooms are bungalow style; very large, comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurant is very good, good food variety and well cooked and presented. Breakfast excellent. We would recommend this hotel for a one or two nights stopover. We will definately go...

This was a good motel. Cars are under cover and close to the rooms. There is an excellent swimming pool. The facilities are all there, if appearing a little basic. Each room has a terrace or balcony. Beware if you have mobility issues or small children as there are a few rooms on the second floor. The restaurant provided a...

This is the second time we have stayed here at the Hotel el Hidalgo .

The location is good, easy to find just off the motorway. The gardens are excellent. Pets welcome. Secure parking right outside your room. The rooms are tired and old, not that clean either. The beds are uncomfortable. The whole place needs a refit to bring it out of the 1970s & into this century. No wifi signal at the back...

Decided to stay here for a change on our trip down to Southern Spain.(We normally stay about 10/15 minutes further south) Our room was in the 2 storey block (Crossroads Motel style) at the back.
