I usually write a review if I am really unimpressed, or very, very impressed. This time I am most definately impressed! My partner and I have just returned from a 4 night stay. We would recommend this place to anyone (and definately will)! We were made to feel incredibly welcome by John and Orna - who were both very helpful and added to the pleasure of our stay. The rooms are beautiful, with fantastic decor and wonderful refreshing showers. The best bit by far are the numerous terraces - especially for gin and tonics or fantstic dinners.

It is hot in summer - but it is still great to get up and out in the mountians. There is a lot to see locally, villages, views and even the Alhambra in Grenada.

John and Orna have created a little bit of heaven in the Spanish mountains. I am very envious! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My friends and I decided on this destination for our girly trip abroad a few weeks ago. I must say, I couldn't have had a more wonderful time. John and Orna took fabulous care of us for our 4 day stay, very friendly and welcoming, they were impeccable hosts to my friends and I. We can't say thank you enough for all the thoughtful care taken during our stay.
The hotel building is stunning and immaculately presented, with beautifully finished touches throughout. With sun terraces to relax on outside the rooms, this was an ideal area for socialising with a few glasses of wine in the evenings, or even just relaxing during the day.
The quiet location and surrounding breathtaking mountain views really do have a relaxing effect, we left feeling completely revitalised.
I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in the area, we had a simply unforgettable time here. - Thanks again.

Great small retreat. Just four bedrooms which makes it nice and private. Warm and friendly welcome, which continued throughout the stay. Comfy rooms, and amazing views. Views are enjoyed by the pool, and best of all...when having breakfast or dinner. Some self service on drinks etc during the day...from fridges inside and outside. Dinner is by arrangement, prepared fresh by the owner...excellent! Also, good friendly pub in closeby village. In our opinion, a great cut off retreat for Spring, summer and Autumn. Very hot in summer. Our next visit will be spring or autumn when we can explore the mountains. Granada less than an hour, and great views en route. Will add pictures in a few days.

Room Tip: all four rooms have the same view, and a slightly different theme. Can't remeber ours, but sure...

My friends and I spent three nights at the wonderful El Cielo de Canar which was not long enough!
When we arrived John and Orna were incredibly friendly and welcoming and this continued throughout our stay with us never wanting for anything, drinks food etc... They were one step ahead always! One day Anna delivered ice creams to us on our sunbeds at the pool, what a star!
The views are breathtaking; the vast amount of space that surrounds you is amazing, incredibly relaxing and peaceful.
The rooms were beautifully designed and the beds very comfortable; the bathrooms spacious and well equipped!
Had an amazing time and will look forward to visiting again! Thank you! x

We had a really enjoyable time staying here. The owners are friendly and welcoming, the room was clean and well presented and the views from the terrace was amazing. And the two labradors (Eddie and Elvis) took us on a long tour of the surrounding countryside!

El Cielo de Canar is a wonderful base for a holiday in Southern Spain. Stay as long as possible in this delightful small and unique cortija in a very quiet but accessible region. John and Orna are perfect hosts who have thought of everything to ensure a relaxing holiday in this charming and very special environment. They provided very helpful information and support to make our stay both unique and a delight - the highlight of our month in Spain.

The winding mountain drive up is well worth it with incredible views and is all part of the very unique El Cielo experience. After the first trip it is fine and next time we would base ourselves there for longer and visit Granada as well as the local fascinating Alpujarra region. Canar is a small special village with lovely local bars who provide very interesting food with generous tapas.

The well appointed bedrooms, garden and terraces have excellent mountain and valley views. The lovely sitting and dining room make for quiet relaxing spaces with lots of thoughtful extras. The mountain walks (with the aid of delightful Eddie and Elvis) were a perfect way to unwind. The breakfasts and very special evening meal prepared by Orna who is a fantastic cook were a highlight. Although Australia is a long way from Spain we are already planning our return and will definitely start with time at El Cielo.

Room Tip: All rooms are a delight

We stayed in El Cielo for 3 nights with our two grown up sons and were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves.
After a slightly scary last few kilometers (try not to arrive when it is dark although the road is fine once you have got used to it) we arrived in this wonderful location, in the middle of nowhere with beautiful views all around. We were welcomed by John - with a bottle of wine, olives.... and the labradors Elvis and Eddie and from then on it was all pretty perfect: the rooms and bathrooms are not huge but they are very tastefully done and lead onto a lovely terrace; there is plenty of space to lounge around, a pool (although too cold for us at this time of the year) and great walks up and down the mountains.

Canar, the nearest village has a simple but tasty cafe/restaurant but we strongly recommend that you have dinner at the house as food is excellent and we can't thank John enough for his very attentive service. Finally, it is small touches like biscuits with tea or drinks and snacks left in the sitting room in the evening that made us feel totally relaxed and quite at home. Definitely worth going back to!

Room Tip: the one at the very end of the terrace
